Hello Dear Ones,
Like many of you, I have felt distraught, heartbroken, helpless and angry at the separation and detention of families seeking asylum and refuge in this country. I struggle to know how to maintain, at times, the vitality to be present and take action in the face of so much trauma and violence.
Today is the Summer Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the longest day of the year and has been celebrated by humans all over the world for millenia. For every 'wheel of the year' holiday (solstices, equinoxes, and crossquarter days like Beltaine) I send out a greeting to my Magic Potions for Grown-Ups subscribers. These greetings are to help us tune into the energies of the season so that we might live in greater harmony with the natural world, not at cross-purposes. In light of all that is happening in the world, and especially here in the United States, I was moved to share this message with you as well:
I have been reveling in the long days of sunshine--and feeling the horror of the continued trauma and violence in this country. Today that all came together in me, so much that my head was feeling kind of like it wanted to explode, and I sense this to be a moment where inner and outer work come together very specifically. So your transmission today is both a blessing and an invitation to greater courage.
Summer Solstice Transmission (~10 min)
In service to courage, and love, and integrity, I invite you to spread the word about (and join if you can) the protests happening all over the United States this Saturday, speaking out against the separation and detention of families. I'm planning on going to the one in San Francisco.
Families Belong Together, Saturday June 23rd
May we all contact our courage, our source and our connection in service to the healing of the world and our hearts.
Much love and blessings to you,
