Believing in the Spirit of Time

Believing in the Spirit of Time

First we have to believe, and then we believe.”

– G.C. Lichtenberg

Winter Solstice brought us cosmic fetes of beauty, and Glad Tidings are still being shared with those we love. But in this sweet spot of time as we prepare to embark on another trip around the sun, it’s almost time to ring in the New Year!!! Holy hell! (👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼)


I wanted to plant seeds of inspiration for you as you prepare for the 2021 journey ahead. There is a sacred energy of the earth still vibrating strongly; this is the time of reflection, release, restoration, and renewal. As the season of Believing seems to wind down for the rest of the world, please let me gently make something very clear.

Many dreams still wait in the wings. Many aspirations are just within our grasp if we keep stretching. Many hungers need nourishment. Many yearnings must be acknowledged so that they can be fulfilled. Many authentic sparks must be fanned before Passion performs its perfect work within you.


Throw another log on the fire 🔥.

This is not the day you quit.

This is not the day to feel sad.

This is the day you stare down every naysayer who doesn’t get it yet. Because you do. Finally. And now you know that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

This is the day you shout, “I Believe!

This is not the time you stop believing. You simply cannot afford the luxury of skepticism. And what must you believe with every breath, until you do believe? How about the mystical alchemy of style and Spirit. Dreams reimagined. We become authentic in our life’s realm the same way we become courageous. By doing it. Believing! You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.


We’ve made the long journey across the desert … harmony, exuberance, passion, new dreams considered, all await in this new year.


Be Glad. Be Well. Be Brave.


Happy New Year dear Collective ❤,



(Thank you Eleanor Hodgman Porter, Shelia Graham, and Sarah Ban Breathnach for your words of inspiration this month)
