The Shift


The Shift

On Christmas morning I had an incredible and significant dream. This was the kind of dream that looks and feels so different and stays with you unfolding its deep mysteries and messages bit by bit. After months and months of the most harrowing physical and emotional struggles this dream is like a message of hope and rebirth.

I believe in telling our stories. I believe we help one another by speaking our truth no matter how difficult that is. Writing is my way of processing and I have been unable to write during these long months of the deepest, darkest, most frightening physical and emotional trials I have ever lived through and I have been doing this for a very, very, long time. I can handle more than even I can imagine. This however was a whole other level. There were many days and nights I thought I would not make it.

I could say I was fighting for my life but in truth all I wanted was to give up, to get out, to go home. This was a truly hellish experience, like nothing I have ever traversed before. I will leave it at that but I know many of you have been going through your own dark night. I continue to write here because of all the messages I receive telling me how much it helps others going through their own trials and if this can help even one person then I must continue to share my experience.

This morning when contemplating my dream I heard the words “The Shift” and knew I was to go out and photograph the energies of The Shift. I share it with the hope that you can feel that we are coming into a new way of being. I do not know if as individuals we have more to go through at that unbearable level as we continue to transmute not only for ourselves but for the collective but I do feel the light shining through after a very dark time. We are here and we continue on. We are so much more and we are doing so much more than we ever know.

I know the energies in this image, so divinely given, radiate out and aid us in making the Grandest Shift of All.

I wish you LOVE and PEACE and most of all I wish you HOPE.

In the light,
