There's no denying we are all experiencing a bit more darkness these days. Summer has officially come to an end and the time of light is growing shorter as we descend into fall.
The world is also going through its own fall season and dark energy seems to be more prevalent than we would like.
It is important to honor the darkness, feel into its depths and fully metabolize the fruits that await us there. At the same time too much wallowing in the shadows can leave us feeling depressed and tired.
In these times we must acknowledge the dark and also remember to let our inner light shine through.
If you look up in the night sky it's clear that it is mostly dark, yet there are tiny stars that shine so brightly they literally make life possible for the planets that surround them.
We believe our role as conscious beings is to be that light in the world.
While it may be tempting to stay inside we want to remind you that nature is NOT closed.
What can you do to get outside and take a deep breath of the freshly cooled air?
What can you do to light up someone else's world that might be feeling down?
What time can you carve out for your own self care?
In reality darkness is only the lack of light. The shadows cannot survive in the presence of light.
Let Your Light Shine Now & Forever.

PS - We recently attended a farm to table dinner! It was nice to get out and support our favorite local farm while also enjoying the crisp fall air. Enjoy the harvest friends! : )
