Here in Maui it is currently winter season and although it really doesn't snow here it can get chilly. Up in Haleakala it can get to 20 to 30 degrees. It doesn't get to those low temperature on all parts of the island, but it has been getting chilly so I have been wearing sweaters. Then the last couple of days my body was not feeling 100%.
Although I had some plans, the plans shifted to meaningful rest and recuperation. My spirit was feeling in good shape and I felt each day I was going into a deeper silence, as I went deeper into the silence I felt I was receiving messages into my soul some translatable about writing more books, some still downloading.This winter I feel many things are shifting in the world, a worldly and cosmic purification. The world is awakening to more of that which binds us.
During this meaningful rest period all I can do is take it step by step and day by day. I have been looking at what I would like to release while staying in gratitude.
What are some things you would like to release?
What are some things your feeling grateful at the present moment?
Here Edith has gifted me with nourishing soups. One was filled with celery, carrots beets, potato, mung dahl, split pea, french green lentils, coconut oil, turmeric, salt and pepper. potato
I chewed the veggies slowly and drank the broth, making a nourishing meal like this becomes medicine.
Food is a blessing, preparing a meal with love becomes a double blessing. As all the ingredients and elements come together it makes me think how in life we have the opportunity to experience divine support with and for one another. What ingredients support you in feeling nourished? which foods, relationships, thoughts, feelings, actions nourish you?
Source, angels, relationships, family and friends, and Mother nature holds a divine space to remind us of our inter-connectness.
In my silences I see mirrors of Love all around. I give gratitude for the time to rest, the time to work together to accomplish goals, The body will go through changes and although the weather changes, the light of the sun and moon is always there. Our lives will go through many different times but the love of God, source, universe what you may call is always there.

Thought of the day: May contentment fill the mind, may gratitude fill each nano second of life with love and may we feel nourished during this cosmic purification.
