Starbucks Sign: Fall in Love. The Season is Here....

Fall in love... the season is here!

As I drove up to the local Starbucks, I noticed a sign they had written on a chalkboard. Though they meant fall in love with all of the delicious fall flavors available now, the saying struck me. 

There's always been something about Autumn that touched my heart, deep within. It always inspired me with a profound sense of appreciation, aliveness, and love. It has to be my favorite time... when the weather drops just a bit, the breeze is cool, the leaves change color and the intoxicating smell of bon fires fill the crisp night air. The colors are vibrant and beautiful, rich in character. You get to throw on your favorite hoodie or snuggle under a blanket. Enjoy hot drinks in awesome mugs. It's an enchanting time of year. 

When I read the sign at Starbucks, I thought, "yes...fall in love." 

Fall in love with yourself.

Fall in love with life.

Fall in love with every single breath you take.

You do not need to be married or in a relationship to fall in love.... You can be single and still fall in love every moment of everyday. 

There is so much to fall in love with.  Especially this time of year. 

Falling in love is simply realigning with the divine source that is already within you; the love and light. The spark of magnificence and the truth of all that you are.  Falling in love is a feeling that comes from within; we can manifest it in any moment we so choose. It does not need to be directed at a person. It can be directed at anything, anyone, everything and everyone... including ourselves. 

The feeling of ecstasy that comes with falling in love is the feeling of freedom, of being, of presence and mindfulness. It is our connection to the powerful and limitless energy that moves through us all, that moves through the universe and created worlds. An energy that is always there, always available. 

Embrace the process of falling in love. And do it over and over, again. Cherish it, hold onto it a bit longer than usual. Let it move through your body, ignite your passion and joy, and energize your mind and creativity. Bask in its radiance. Let it light you up. And be grateful. 

Yes, it sure is the's always the season. 

Let's fall in love. 

Today's Card / Message of the Day: Separation is a call for help....

Today's card / message of the day: 

"Attack, pain, fear, judgment, and any form of separation are merely calls for help.” - the Universe Has Your Back cards (Gabbie Bernstein)

How true, how relevant, how powerful is this? 

If everything is either an “act of love” or a “cry for love,” such acts as attack, judgment or separation are merely cries for love, cries for help. 

Whether we are the victim or the perp, recognizing this truth is powerful and transformative. We can extend kindness, compassion and understanding towards ourselves and others. Be gentle; everyone is doing the very best they can in this moment with the available resources. This includes you

Understanding this very simple principle allows you to not get too attached to the external world, to realize that how someone treats you is most often not personal but a reflection of their own inner state.  Their pain, their separation, their suffering.

We are all in this together; let’s create unity where there is separation and extend love where there is pain.  To others, and to ourselves.
