Nature as Guide

It is with great love, admiration, and appreciation that I’m sharing this beautiful post by Sarah Love, one of our moderators on the Break Free From Relationship Anxiety/Conscious Weddings E-Course forum, who is now in the last days of her first pregnancy. Over the last six years, Sarah has journeyed through the darkest night anyone can walk through and has emerged with the jewels of wisdom that are reflected in this post.

The Birth of Spring

So much occurs underground for the crocus to burst through in spring

She arrives resplendent in her scarves that speak of freshness and possibility, then retreats behind clouds and drifts of winter.
