Prana Shakti, Partnership, Pregnancy, Parenthood, Preparation, Power and Pranams.

My personal Path of Practice:
Prana Shakti
(the creative & pulsating life force within me), Partnership (a love story of two people who consciously choose one another every day), Pregnancy (Grace in my belly revealing herself through this growing baby boy who lives in my womb), Parenthood (The highest calling of them all), Purification (of all self-defining labels accumulated along the way) Preparation (for a new life, a new calling and for the birthing of all this woman has yet to become, experience, learn and know), Power (to fully stand in mine as a wife, mother and creative woman) Pranams (daily gratitude and humble thanks for my beautiful life and blessings along the way).

Gratitude 35

I’m turning 35 tomorrow and I can hardly believe it. I have in my life everything my heart ever desired and there’s so much more ahead of me for this year alone…a baby, a new home and the start of our becoming parents.
I’ve never felt more grateful in my life as I have felt this past year. As it’s become a regular practice of mine, saying “thank you” daily, I thought I’d honor 35 years of trials, tribulations and triumphs by laying down 35 reasons I’m feeling so grateful these days.
