As Rabindranath Tagore said, “Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.”

What are you doing to nurture your faith? If you turn on the television or read the headlines, the news is usually bad. With so many tragedies occurring across the globe and in our backyards, it may seem like darkness is closing in. Despite our 21st century advances, the color of your skin, your religion or sexual orientation can still make you a target. Even the thought of being somewhere idyllic like the south of France or Turkey can now bring on trepidation. When fear creeps in, your faith needs to be bigger. Close your eyes and feel the light. You don’t need to see it yet in the natural world. Believe it and illuminate your mind with visions of a brighter day. Block destructive and demeaning messages. Periodically turn off electronic devices and tune into yourself. Step up your spiritual practices to experience peace and heighten your awareness. Project positive vibes wherever you go. Know that the sun is rising and good will prevail over evil.

Until next time, remember-it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,

Summer Foods

Fire is the energetic force that governs the health and functionality of your heart and small intestines, as well as the functions of circulation and heating in the body. It is important to cut back on refined foods and animal fats to allow these organs to restore themselves.
