Can anyone else feel the effects of the Eclipse still? Bringing up aspects of shadow self? Most of the time the shadow self is ignored, neglected, and misunderstood. Imagine what would happen if we could learn to love, acknowledge, and nurture it? It may create more balance, totality, and completion of old chapters, agreements, commitments, […]
Just hiked to the top of Cathedral Rock completely barefoot. Great way to connect to the earth and feel grounded. Best medicine ever!
