I have seen cedar waxwings pass berries to one another—each small body the color of sunrise-- with the little red marks like sealing wax on the tips of their wings.

Take them off like dirty clothes, wash myself in spirit and put on new clothes." - Kathryn "When we had to confront our biggest fear and talk to it - that was very powerful for me. The journey tonight in the woods was amazing for me. It was so good to be under the trees and to be in the elment. I highly recommend doing journeys more outside." - Heather "The path to magic begins with an open heart!" - Heather "The universe has become much kinder. I have successfully passed some very big health challenges. There is a greater abundance materially, mentally and spiritually." I know good true beautiful medicine is about how you think and the way you live - not about style or technique. - Carletta Mayer "I am relearning to shine.
