The energy of *lemonade*

Magical Monday to you! This week is the beginning of a couple of weeks of transition including the lunar eclipse and full moon
In my photos this week, I share an example of making *lemondade*. I simply could not get this photo to turn around correctly so instead of trying to force a *lemon* situation, I decided to show you both sides of the *lemon* pictures and make lemonade out of the situation.
Sometimes in life that is the best we can do. Challenging situations can sometimes seem overwelming but we can take that negativity and challenge and simply transform it into a refreshing drink of *lemonade*; taking our best steps forward to create something new out and refreshing out of a *lemon* situation.
Its also a good time to do some contemplation with the lunar eclipse and full moon, followed soon by mercury retrograde. This will prepare you for big changes that will come with the solar eclipse later this month.
I am traveling to the big island of Hawaii this week for an intensive spiritual retreat and yoga instructor training course. I feel immensely excited to be visiting the big island during such an important energetic shift.
So this week, I invite you to take all your lemons and make some lemondade, even contemplating what that lemondade will taste like and how refreshing it will be.
Great joy to you!
Love, love, love!

The energy of *resilience*

Magical Monday to you
and Happy New Moon! In my photos this week, I share a few of the fun things that help me *bounce back* from the unexpected challenges of life. In this past week, Ive experienced a wonderful mini break in San Diego as well as a major challenge.
The mini vacation was wonderful and magical and a nice change of energy and pace. The challenge was a bolt of lightening.
So, what helps to bounce back from a major shift in life that is unexpected?
One of my favorite ways is to continue to enjoy good, healthy, nutritional food. I love this kale and avocado salad and it is one of my favorite items for dinner. In addition to good food, while I was running on the beach and after I finished my meditation; I was walking along and looked down at just the right time to see this beautiful green glass heart right before it got washed away by a wave.
Its a perfect little heart and sends a message of love and hope. Its amazing how little guideposts can come ito your life just when you need them the most.
So, I feel the energy of resilience is simply a combination of keeping up with healthy habits, energies, and food in spite of challenges. And, in addition, to be able to embrace lifes little treasures as we enjoy this magnificient journey we call life.
So this week, I invite you to enjoy the new moon energy of creativity and new beginnings and to enjoy the energy of *bouncing back* through keeping your positive flow of energy going until it comes back around for you.
Great joy to you!
Love, love love!
