Feeling It Out Here For the Collective
This month is all about closure. Sure, it's the end of the year. But what would be the most poetic way to kiss 2021 goodbye? What would make your heart sing? Do that. Be ceremonious. A fresh start awaits! Remember by letting go, it all gets done. It's okay to put some things off until tomorrow. Do what is important. Do what the highest version of you would do. Productivity is overrated. Aligning with your highest vision is not. Celebrate how far you've come this year. Stay away from distractions, and finish the year strong!
This month's blog features:
-short video "Closing Out 2021"
-pic of late fall Chicago sunset
Note: This post marks the end of this blog. It was intended to be a year-long project and welp, the year is up! This blog spans November 2020 to December 2021. I'll be keeping it up on this site for now and hope it's a fun scroll from start to finish. Much love + much dove, XO
Feeling It Out Here For The Collective
The energy of this month may require some grounding. Keep your good vibes going by reminding yourself that there will be bumps inthe road, and don't get too thrown. You're in control of you. Accept the situation or change it. Like the great Bruce Lee said, "Be like water." That's the ticket. And have fun while you're at it!

Feeling It Out Here for The Collective
Fall into fall! As the season shifts, trust in the timing of things, trust that if it feels chaotic at the moment, things will settle. Remain joyful in the knowing that some things are simply out of your control, and a solid approach is to let them go. Yes, the leaves will fall from the trees, but first they light up the forest. Live your best pumpkin spice life this month, and hold on loosely.

Feeling It Out Here For The Collective
This month's energy is fast-paced and brimming with newness. It's time to let go of old patterns, old ways of being that do not serve. Stop the people pleasing, please! You'll know what needs to go by how it feels. If it feels like a lower vibration, let it go. You can and must trust your gut. All the work you've been doing is paying off this month. Look for the little wins - they lead to victory! Step out of fear and into greater love, abundance and fun. It all starts from within. Clear, ground and expand!

Feeling It Out Here for the Collective
The vibe this month is all about taking full responsibility. Take inventory. What habits are supporting you? What relationships? How are you feeding your mind, body, spirit? Making a conscious effort to gain awareness will pay off. Readjust, cut out the negative influences and boom...you're back on track to live your best life. And enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the end of this epic summer. Carve out time to simply follow inspiration, and see where the day takes you. Aligned, inspired action makes way for the miraculous!

"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open." -Martha Graham
Feeling It Out Here For The Collective: A Channeled Message
Sweet summertime! After the wild energetic shifts of the spring, it's time to get your feet in the sand and simply chill. What a wild ride we're on! Going with the flow is key. No need to push anything; what's meant for you can't miss you. All you need to do is stay in a relaxed state. Enjoy the warmth,a good book, some exotic iced tea, some beach tunes, and you'll be aligned to meet up with whatever you're calling in. It's all here for you.
