Life is a constant struggle to stay in balance, to align body, mind and spirit, and yet it does not have to be perceived as a struggle. How you view life is just as important as how difficult it really is. Perception is everything. With a positive attitude that sees life as an adventure, with natural ups and downs, that is leading you ever onward to wisdom and understanding, is a far better attitude than one that offers no insight or possibility of change. With an open heart, an open mind, and an open attitude, embrace life as the grand adventure that it really is. Make every day a day of adventure and learning, and embrace it with gratitude, kindness and love.

Sending you love,
The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Without malice face what comes to disturb your day and let a new perspective guide you. Nothing is too great to face and nothing will get the better of you, especially if you decide to look upon life as a great mystery with its own purpose and its own direction. How life unfolds may never be understood while it is unfolding but hindsight offers the gift of truth, for in looking back one is granted the long view that surely explains everything and leaves one in awe. Be in awe.

Sending you love,

When it seems that nothing is happening, when your cause seems to have lost its steam, when no new path appears, wait. In waiting patiently there is the opportunity to slow down the inner self as well as the chaotic world around you. Sit still and listen to birdsong, to the wind whispering past you, to the crunch beneath your feet, the Earth itself speaking to you. Notice that you are not alone but that all of nature supports you in your quest for change. When it is time to act, to take the next step, you will know.

Sending you love,

What have you learned about yourself? Every day is an opportunity to learn something new about the self and to advance a little more along your path to wholeness. And what is wholeness? It is the completion of the journey you set out upon when you decided to enter into life as the person you are. Your decision included many challenges. To complete your life and attain your wholeness is to meet those many challenges and advance yourself on the journey of your greater Soul self, the self that decided to embark upon life and take up those challenges. What challenges do you have before you today? Begin there. Simply be open to accepting what comes. It‘s always a good day to be challenged!

Sending you love,

Early springtime poses many changes, from warm and pleasant days to cold and snowy ones buffeted by heavy winds. It’s the time of precipice, before spring births forth. Within the self the time of precipice shows up at any time of year, the struggle for something new to emerge. As with the days of early spring there is a settling that will take place and the tensions of the precipice will abate. With patience, what was once so urgent and even dangerous at spring’s awakening will smooth into a warm summer’s day. With a confident heart and steady eye on the future look forward to what is to come in the sure blooming ahead, as it always comes.

Sending you love,
