A woman in her autumn years can release the excess, the unneeded, from her life, the outdated thoughts, feelings, the extra objects, the people who drag her down, the dead weight, the job that does not feed her soul, the old dreams that no longer feed her passions.
Nearly full moon
She can let go of worry about her looks… She can let go, let go, and let go again, only to find there is more to let go of.
When she is empty and hollow and rests in her emptiness, she will be filled once again with new dreams that inspire, with passion to create, a new unconditional love for others, a knowing of her inner power and strength. She will know in every cell her indestructible inner beauty and light, she will focus with clarity on what really matters to her and to the planet that is her home. She will be graced with full acceptance of her many gifts.
As the moon wanes each month to complete darkness and waxes once again to full light in the age old cycle, you too must let go, and let go again, so you can be refilled, refreshed, filled with new energy. You who know and own yourself!
Live your life from the inside out. Let your life rest on the inner wisdom, light and love that power and fuel you! Everything else is like leaves in autumn.
Do you do what you say you will do?
Only make promises to yourself that you fully intend to honor. Let go of all other inklings, half baked ideas, half-hearted plans.

Focus on satisfying your soul by keeping those promises that light you up. What have you been promising yourself for years? Do you still feel excited and energized by it?
Time is limited. Step forward! Take action to begin your whole hearted, soul satisfying, energizing dreams and goals. Tie up loose ends and get cracking!
Dear ones, I have witnessed among you delightful two legged ones many distractions and detours of thought and action that keep you from your most treasured goals and dreams.
You too have access to grace, the state of oneness with all things. Grace is no consciousness of self as you move easily through life. You have no second guessing, no doubt, you exist completely in the here and now.
Snow covered bird’s nest
You often distract yourselves and take yourselves out of the stream of life with time wasters, glitzy attention grabbers, shiny objects, preconceived notions, career trivia, Mom and Dad’s agenda for you, pain in the body or emotions…
Gradually you’re pulled off the track into the weeds. Have you sacrificed the most precious treasure of your life – your time – to distractions by others? Those with louder voices, bigger paychecks, overpowering egos, higher positions, a bigger following, more success, more stuff?
If so, it is time to haul yourself back to your true and rightful path – your life’s work, your soul’s delight, your calling. You un-rooted ones must make like a tree and ground yourself daily, hourly, if you need to.
Pull yourself back to the center of your life, let go of your grip on the distracting elements around and in you. Simply notice your distraction and align yourself again and again with the source of your purpose, your soul’s work.
You are the sovereign of your own energy, your own life. Learn to focus fully on your life’s passions and the distractions will fall away. You will once again live in a state of grace.
