Brillance, Gratitude, & Rest
Mindfully Speaking’s September Newsletter
The days are shorter. Fall arrives on quiet feet. We watch Gaia change around us as Nature sets Her forests ablaze with gold, red, and orange. Children return to their classrooms, in-person and virtually. Pumpkin Spice reappears in All. The. Things. Autumn from coffee to beer. The cadence of Life marches to a different beat.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Lammas is past and we look forward to Samhain with anticipation. We count our many blessings as we are thankful for All. Our. Abundance. Health, Wealth, and Love.
We wind down as we prepare for winter. We harvest the bounty as we prepare fields and bodies for a long rest. Autumn has its own vibration and scent. We wrap ourselves in warmer clothing and breathe in the cool, crispness of the season.
For our family, on a personal level, September is flooded with memories. My older daughter was born in September. She received a liver transplant two days after her twelfth birthday. All who know her story pause for inner reflection of those days and celebrate the miracle of medical science that gave us these past twenty-nine years with her — the miracle of her survival and the hope of long life and a bright future.
We remember we are blessed.
A huge thank you to our readers and writers. A very heartfelt welcome to our new contributors! We are deeply grateful to share The Journey with you all. May you & all beings be healthy. May you & all beings be happy. May you & all beings be safe.
