My theme in my yoga classes this month has been about cultivating steadfastness. It's something that has come up over and over in my tarot readings and morning meditations of late. In these uncertain times, it's also the discussion I'm having the most with the people I love.
If we let it, fall offers us time to pause and reflect before we enter into the busyness of late November and December and the promise of the new year. 

Get grounded. Find ritual. Prepare. Risk the heart.

The Healing Time
Pescha Joyce Gertler

Finally on my way to yes
I bump into
all the places
where I said no
to my life
all the untended wounds
the red and purple scars
those hieroglyphs of pain
carved into my skin, my bones,
those coded messages
that send me down
the wrong street
again and again
where I find them
the old wounds
the old misdirections
and I lift them
one by one
close to my heart
and I say    holy
