Haven’t you felt the shift in energy from the beginning of March to the end of the month, and our ability to feel and perceive more.

Actually, the people we were in the beginning of March is not the who we are now.  It’s so fascinating how fast our spirals of transformation are cycling through, and how deep and wide our evolution is unfurling.

This week, in particular, there have been some subtle and not-so-subtle pulsations rumbling throughout our beings, and it’s been a pleasure to feel life’s vibrations.   Our lives are becoming enchanted.

We are finding the time and space to feel it all, not only the joys, but the challenges and pain too.  We no longer want to numb ourselves, and before we do we are courageous enough to reach out to one another.

Are we spiritually keeping up with ourselves?  In some areas, yes.  In others, absolutely not!  But, that’s fun of it.  We are following God’s Divine leads, and slowly giving up the idea of being perfect.  We are strong enough to forgive ourselves and each other.

What matters most is the joy and love that abides in our hearts, especially as we embark on our many interesting adventures to create awe-inspiring life outcomes.

Take great care of yourselves, sojourners.  Until next time.

Much Love, Tonya
