Since I began making flower essences in 2000, I have merged with the Garden of Love. I sense its movement through the seasons as though I were a plant. There was a time in early August when I noticed the first hint of Autumn. That day I increased my intake of Vitamin C and D to prepare for the season change. The past few days, the weather is cooler and I am turning within, shifting from the yang of the warm weather of Summer to the yin of Autumn and Winter. The wheel of life will turn on the Autumnal Equinox (September 22nd); yet for now the garden remains lush. The perfected state of our garden right now is a mirror of the Soul for those who devoted themselves to unfolding the evolutionary potential available during the Nature Year of Complete Surrender. 

The age 10 trauma with which I am working continues to surface. I touch into it in dreamtime; through the compulsivity of my ego/personality which is fearful of its revelation; and the gripping pain in my heart which I experience intermittently throughout the day. Perhaps my heart will reveal this trauma as a parting gift of this Nature Year; or perhaps I am laying the foundation for the new year. In this Year of Complete Surrender, through this last piece of healing, I continue to learn to let go, be patient and trust my inner process. With this surrender has come a profound sense of inner peace.

As I contemplate the Nature Year, I ask myself, “What is its greatest gift?” The answer, “Soul expression.” After nine years of facilitating this Nature Year program, I now recognize greater Soul expression as the potential inherent in every Nature Year. Summer is the season of the Externalization of the Soul. Externalization = Soul Expression. This has been an incomparable year because of my daily Tantra practice. Through my Tantra practice, my Soul has revealed so many mysteries to me, both personal and universal.Tantra is a personal mystery school through which we pierce the veil of our Soul.

I am cherishing the last days of this year which has brought me to myself in such a remarkable way. Simultaneously, I am preparing for Module One of the Sacred Feminine Program, 2020-2021. Soon Spirit will whisper the theme of the New Year to me. 

Throughout the year, I wrote about healing my traumas and the pained places within my heart. Today, I write about my happiness, which is the backdrop of my life and the fruit of decades of healing. For many years as a young woman, I lived in chronic and intolerable physical and emotional pain. After six years of therapy, at age 34, I was still in a lot of pain. One day, I made a decision to stop suffering over my suffering. That day, I surrendered to the reality of my experience. I will always remember the descent of my Soul in that moment of surrender. The pain I experienced continued to drive me to heal. I had the thought of transcendence. I was unreasonably optimistic. I believed if I kept going, one day I would be free of pain. Now, I am driven by the thought of Ascension. Again, I am unreasonably optimistic. Throughout my life, people told me I couldn’t do what I set out to do. My grade seven teacher said I wasn’t smart enough to represent the school in an academic competition the following year. I did it! At lunch 20 years ago, a man who owns a popular spiritual magazine said to me, “Nobody heals from sexual abuse.” I am doing it! Now, I am aiming for Ascension. People may call me grandiose or naïve. I am giving it my all. Maybe, just maybe, I will do it! And, maybe you will do it with me!

I have invited you to join me on this journey: to live on the edge of possibility. Regardless of where we are in our healing and life, I guarantee we are heading in the right direction and that the rewards are beyond our imagination. To be one with our Soul is the sublime experience of Divine immanence. I always loved God. Then I discovered the Goddess, and She became my inspiration. I call her Isis, Athena, Quan Yin, Lakshmi, Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Inanna, and more. It is She that leads us on this path: She in whom we place our trust: She that calls us to our destiny: She who is unwavering in her belief in us: She who takes us home to ourselves.

My team here and I talked about charging for this program because of its value and how much time and energy we spend creating it. I won't do it. Every woman deserves access to this gift of healing. We will send out an official notice of the new Nature Year program soon. Please share it with the women in your life so more women can experience this Ascended Master-directed healing.

How fitting that in this Wisdom Wednesday newsletter, in which I celebrate the grand finale of the year, I experience a breakthrough. Today, I sat at my computer and wrote: no hours of preparation, no Tantra, not even once. Here in lies my accomplishment this year. I have restored the voice of my Soul. I am crying tears of joy for I have come home to myself in this extraordinary way.Sometimes it takes a lifetime to become who you are here to be and to do what you came to do.

Ceremony of Completion Look in the mirror of your Soul and witness who you have become over the course of the year.

In your journal, write a description of the new you. If regrets about the year come up as you write, forgive yourself and commit to do better next year.

Compose a thank-you note to your Soul for the sacred gifts you received this year.

Pour a glass of wine or champagne or make a cup of tea or coffee. Eat chocolate (or carob) treats and celebrate yourself and your accomplishments. 

Then, do Tantra and celebrate some more!!!
