The divine light within me bows with gratitude for the gifts, blessings, and challenges that have been along my path and bring me to this divine moment right NOW. As each breath flows through me, I ask and intend that inspiration to create this work does, too. May the lessons that are most important to be shared come through with ease and grace. May the right people to collaborate with feel the magnetic pull to join our tribe. May the abundance flow in all directions, enhancing the well-being of all who choose to get inspired and move. May the wisdom traditions inform us, the wildness in us re-invent life anew, and the soul wings be set free to feel true freedom. May we also feel the strength of the community flying high together and dwell in kindness and compassion for each living being knowing we are all one.
To every task, yes and thank you.
To every inquiry, yes and thank you.
To every day, yes and thank you.
