We adapted this week’s post from a piece we wrote many years ago. As often happens, the subject is as timely now as it was when we wrote the piece.


These are times of momentous changes on your planet. At one moment, you are enjoying the roses of summer. Then the roses fade and their petals fall to the earth. The trees change colors and their leaves fall to the earth. Your brothers and sisters, the animals of the earth, begin to hibernate. You feel cold and alone.

Suddenly there is winter.

Is this not much like what you often feel in your lives? The changes – from the roses of summer to the snows of winter – seem to come upon you so quickly and, often, so painfully.

And yet this is the very reason you have come to this planet in this incarnation – to experience the density, the heaviness, the changes. And you’ve also come to learn from these experiences. And to find your way back Home once more – to the goddess, the god within.

It cannot be otherwise. That is why you have come – and you shall certainly accomplish your mission.

Changes, painful and difficult as they may feel from your human perspective, are always for your highest good.

Most of your pain is in your resistance, not in the change itself. Give up the resistance and you give up the pain. You simply trust and surrender. Totally trust in and surrender to the flow of your life – to your higher self, your soul, the Great Spirit.

And, oddly enough, in that place of total trust and surrender, you shall find your greatest power. And from that point of power, your pathway Home suddenly becomes painless and joyful.

You have come full circle – the snows of winter have once more brought you the roses of summer.
