the wandering vines of far-reaching dreams, we create our future with the small little requests put into mo- tion by digging deep in fertile soil of possibility. The Universe then takes over the germinating and sprouting of our ideas, no matter how big or small. You’ll enjoy discovering that an emphatic intention, deliberately planted in the rich soil of your con- nection to the Infinite brings you!


June – Solstice Like the farmer committed to his crops, June gives us a solstice of change along with the steadfast yet unseen growth of our energetic desires. The longest days of the year allow us extra time and light in which to tend to and grow our ideas. The solstice also represents a shift from days lengthening to shortening and gently reminds us that although the rules of nature never change, we can accept the transition from light to darkness and remain empowered by the cycle. In the moments of dark- ness we learn that when we remain eternally connected to the Infinite, we commit to living an ever changing life of discovery!


July – Freedom Trapped in the grid of calendar days and months, the year stretches out before us as we plan our future. Take a revolutionary step from what you did this time last year and dare to discover something new to do. Think beyond what the month offers and in climate and leisure time, and break free from what Thoreau called “a life of quiet desperation.” In the symbolic month of Freedom, this July dare to venture into the freedom of your mind, your thoughts and your desires!


August – Movement Shifting from the summer months to prepare for the changes in autumn, we often look at August as a bridge between the vacations we knew as


children to the school year ahead. Passing quickly, August reminds us our work is ahead of us and to amass the momentum gained from a few months of recreation to a life of cre- ation. We discover that movement brings change as we look toward our goals and embrace the life lessons necessary to reach even higher.


September – Learning We begin the harvest time of the year with eagerness to reap our life’s work. After a hearty spring of planting, a summer of growing, fall’s impending harvest gives us a chance to enjoy the nourishment we deliberately created. In the Autumnal Equinox of our lives, we reach a balance of work and restful resolve and discover that the spiritual work we consciously and subconsciously performed benefits us if we pluck it from its foundation and put it to good use!


October –New ideas As Christopher Columbus found the new world, we venture out of our comfort zones in October to seek new ideas and meaning. Fat with the abundance of soulful crops, we are full-bellied with spirit and able to allow ourselves the luxury of imagin- ing a greater life. Halloween invites us to put on a face of someone else, even for one night, to aspire to be something different, or perhaps even better than we perceive ourselves to be. Discover something new about yourself every day!


November –Gratitude Giving thanks for all that we are, all we do, and all that we have keeps the laws of physics and energy in motion. Even when circumstances appear dire, gratitude finds a way to peek through and remind us that a lesson dwells deep inside the well of uncertainty. Amidst a feast of gratitude our life works. Discovering

a morsel of positive thought brings about a cornucopia of daily blessings.


December –Rejuvenation Winding down the calendar year, the Winter Solstice shifts the planet from shorter to longer days. Our har- vest long-since stored for use in the coming winter months, December offers time for rest and reflection. Our spirits celebrate the much an- ticipated lighter days while using the darkness to turn within and rebuild our souls. Take the time to discover all the ways you move from darkness to light, and from storing your good to gladly sharing it with the world.


As long as people attempted to cap- ture time in a calendar, restrictions on timepieces, measurement and ceremony moved into our conscious- ness. Cultures created rules about when a ritual is performed, when crops get planted, and even when to celebrate and when to relax. As you flip through the man-made calendar, know that you alone hold the key to discovering how you will live in the coming days, weeks and months. It’s your life! Live it well and cherish every minute.
