Note from Betty:
Dear friends, Grandmother Cottonwood is coming out of retirement. Since leaving my day job and working through some health issues, I’m feeling a strong pull to begin channeling GCW again and sharing her words with you.
This connection with the magnificent cottonwood tree lights me up and inspires me – so by doing this blog, I am practicing what she preaches!
May her words inspire and bless you.
GCW in summer
On this day, you begin again. You start fresh with a clean slate. You live here and now in this flickering light under my canopy, your heart navigating the journey, your feet bringing you here, step by step.
Now past and future dissolve into this one present moment. It is the breath, filling and emptying; the breeze stirring my leaves in silver shimmers high above, touching the summer sky.
We are alive! We have been given the most precious gift of all – Life here on this beloved green planet at this time and in this place. We each have our place in the ancient circle of life that has sustained our planet for millennia.
If you think your presence here is an accident, a mistake, think again! A billion or more coincidences, factors, and conditions had to line up perfectly to allow for your creation.
If you think you are helpless, think again! When you align your energy with source, you are a powerful force to be reckoned with
If you think you can’t make a difference in the world, think again! Every choice you make, every thought you think sends ripples into the universe, creating patterns of energy that interact with others and form what you know as reality. Choose those thoughts, ideas, feelings, and words that you wish to see made manifest in the world.
All- that- is desires and needs your presence here, shining your light fully, sharing your unique gifts, your loving energy with clarity, grace and joy!
