Opening Your Heart, Even in the Face of a Storm

Seasonal Healing Messages provide timeless help when you need it most.

From storm to blue skies: As experienced at Niwot Ridge’s Aspen Grove this week:
“If you don’t like the weather, wait 5-minutes” is a real thing here in Colorado.
Message from the Aspens
You humans think that you know everything.
Sure, you can walk on water, but can you keep your heart from drowning in a storm?
Can you sacrifice your fear of dying to the love of living?
You dart about in fun one moment
and cower in fear the next.
You are a mammal. We show you a model.
You can’t become us, but you can use our wisdom in your own way.
Just as our roots network,
listening to  your intuition connects you to each other via truths worth honoring.
Use your intuition and you will receive the validation you seek:
The permission to love living,
To walk with an open heart,
To embrace the animal side of you,
To honor more and more what this Earth and your life are really about.
The Eco-System swirls with many harsh realities,
yet is mixed with clarity, warmth and fresh air.
All you have to do is share – intuitively.
Grow where you are drawn, even if it seems no man (or anyone you know) has gone there before.
Honor all forms along the way.
Validate each being’s unique expression.
Find calm in the storm:
Your heart is the eye.
Your intuitive vision is the sky.
Power is in our ability to bring validation to what is true and pure in all of your relationships:
This is how we grow together.
At our own pace.
In our own way.
Us, you, me, them, We.
Only embracing it all will set you free.


The primal experience of being human: in an instant the fear adrenaline switch can be turned on in our brain and body. Resisting, denying or trying to control it only creates shame. Learning to dance with your animal instincts is partnering with your body in the most powerful way.


Surface level: A sense of defeat and retreat swims around as we enter into a new phase. With the destructive yet constructive fire storms of the fall, many were asked to rise. Appearing to some as dramatic, a desire to have results sooner was at the core. Results are indeed coming sooner, but not yet.

In the air we embrace the unknown that is happening outside, knowing that the light, certainty and confidence are all rising on the inside. Touch upon that which is ready to dissolve and watch the darkness crumble. And retreat from the rest. All in good time. Settle the light into your heart and soul.


Stir the dichotomies within you, knowing that God is guiding your hand. Co-sprinkle some magic into your everyday life and into the season. Let your creations simmer where they need to be more digestible.

Happy Winter Solstice,
