I have returned from The Conscious Goddess Festival, although I feel that I left a part of myself there at Cheekye Ranch in Squamish, BC. It was not so much a festival but a sacred healing journey and celebration of life. I think that many if not all of the attendees left something of themselves behind on the ranch. Throughout the weekend, sitting around the sacred fire or holding down the fort at my vendor booth, I could hear the powerfully haunting howling and cries of women and men letting go of that which has held them back. Generations of build up of muck and lack of Self and Mother Earth Love. All of that was left behind in order to move forward and do what we are truly here to do. LOVE! We are abundance, we are love! We are the ones we've been waiting for! We do this deep healing work for ourselves, for all beings and for the future generations.
Another beautiful thing that happened for me personally was all the love I received for my creations. This has inspired me to let go a little more, let go of that fear of rejection and make more efforts to get my jewelry and art out into the world. I know that I am not alone in believing it is beautiful, people want to see it, touch it, hold it! My art not only excites me, but it excites others and sparks that fire of light and joy within them. Not sharing, not putting the effort in is not only depriving myself, but giving into that fear affects everyone and continues that pattern, which I so deeply want to destroy.
Look out for what's to come! Once I put this intention out into the Universe, I cannot go back. All is possible. Believe in yourself and what you have to offer. We are the ones we've been waiting for. AHO!

As we have reached Summer Solstice and the Full Moon this week, I am reflecting on the past few months.
Prior to this, I had an amazing journey to Holy India and Israel reconnecting with friends and family, and reaffirming my path. Spring has been a whirlwind of change, my mantra being, Surrender to the mystery of life. Well, I asked for it and I received. Circumstances forced me to surrender, and every day I am reminding myself to trust and let go.
I decided to take a leap of faith and offer a Restorative Yoga series in the Fall, which I am very excited for. If you build it, they will come right!? Creativity has been flowing with my jewelry collection, and I am overjoyed to be vending at a festival for the first time. The Conscious Goddess Festival will be held June 24-26 near Squamish BC. I will also be debuting a line of shirts that I have been working hard on for some time. Along with all my other offerings, this shirt line is very dear to me. The designs were originally created by my mentor and friend, Babaji, whom my husband and I met on a previous trip to India three years ago. Babaji îs an incredible artist, drawing and painting what he sees during meditation. His art work is beautiful, intricate and deeply meaningful.
I have also opened up my Etsy shop, Soulcollection, and made my first sale. I shipped off a very special piece to Australia!
Well, that's it for now. I will continue to surrender and follow my path in trust.
