Breathe... The Universe is taking care of everything else! 
- Soul Speaking -

 It was a cold day in Laguna beach, overcast, and even feeling a bit like the traditional “June Gloom”.  But, I determined that the weather wasn’t going to slow me down. I slipped into this, gorgeous, “For Love & Lemons Undeniable Dress”,  from Electric Frenchie, which immediately brightened up the day.  I met up with some friends for soy lattes, and by noon, the sun broke through the thick, coastal clouds, spreading radiant light, across the sea. We played along the shoreline, following the turquoise tide along the rocks, eventually, finding our way into an isolated cove.  Holy mother of pearl!  It felt like we struck gold -- discovering a cache of millions of shells washed up and caught against the shore.  Nature always amazes and surprises.   From the big picture of our lives, to a spontaneous moment in a photo-shoot -- one can just never be sure of how things are going to unfold, and yet . . . 

I do know that I want to honor and explore the earth, expand my mind, marvel at the mystery of existence.  I wish to feel in my heart, deep gratitude for the pure pleasure of being. It may sound crazy, but in this lifetime, I want to fully know what it means to be alive.  I believe we can choose to live in a way where things feel magical & connected -- on the grandest scale!  Art, life, wishes, dreams . . . everything is energy, and energy has no boundaries . . . unless, we fashion them for ourselves, in our own mind.  I’m practicing staying open, trusting, and letting the universe assist me in creating my incredible life -- which for me, is a life of freedom, joy, love, harmony, & abundance.  It’s time now.  What kind of a life do you want?  Ask for it.  Write it down.  Read it before you go to sleep, and each morning when you rise . . . command your wildest dreams.  You can have whatever you want!  You can do whatever you wish!  Go forth in love, and let’s discover, together, what is possible.
