And don’t forget the LOVE and nurturing your body requires – yummy food, lots of rest, moving about, and rejoicing in the miracle being alive in a human body.

We get to each see, you get to see! and experience, if activating and aligning with LOVE will bring about the world of peace and prosperity we all desire. To be in LOVE, no matter the externals, can be deeply challenging, but the rewards greatly outweigh the vigilance required to keep aligning with LOVE until that becomes the only choice you can make.
Nurture your love affair with the Earth herself and see for yourself how things improve.
