I was asked a question by a friend yesterday that made me realize my innate ability to listen to my own divine intuition.  Immediately I knew, within, the answer to the question but of course my human mind stopped to 'think'.  

The intuitive answer was profound, it was instant, it was full of love.  It was Spirit who interceded.  

She asked, "At what age do you want to die"?  
Immediately my southern draw and natural instinct said, "Whenever the good Lord or Spirit within me decides".  
Instead of piping out these words, I paused and just listened to her opinions then said quietly that I was thankful for the privilege of living.  Truth is, I am thankful everyday for the honor to be on the Earth in the physical form because I feel I can truly make a difference.  Every soul has something to offer no matter if the soul is five days old or one hundred and five years old.  I do not know the number of days I'll be here but I do know the enormity of love I feel for this life I was privileged to embody. I will use it well and I am thankful for every soul who walks upon it.  Every soul who has touched my life and I theirs.  My body may fail, I may be in pain at times but that is a consequence of life.  To be able to choose joy through this journey of life no matter what the issue, condition or circumstance is a courageous decision.  In my opinion, it is the only decision I have if I want to live fully everyday until the day comes and my physical body leaves this Earth.  Until that day, I will walk in faith, heart open and thankful for every blessed second I have left here on Earth to serve, to be present and to love.  

Everyday is a gift, that's why they call it the present. 

Enlightenment comes to those who respect and honor themselves, which is ultimately the divine source of love shared within all, the whole of humanity and the universe together.  This sole action of deep respect, in itself, is a universal practice of authenticity, understanding and love wrapped up into one big gift of peaceful, calm and enlightened love.  Dealing through your own issues takes tons of courage but know that you can do it and during this time of shift as we prepare ourselves for something new with the fullness of the moon and the season, may you find the energy to give love to yourself and may that love be shared out into the universe freely.  Free yourself today and give love.  Give some respect. Allow that dash of peace overflow into tomorrow.  

Dear Friends, 
The power of focused intention, prayer and collective action is an urgent fight at the moment in regards to the elephant kingdom.  
Through years of spiritual practice I've learned that going with the flow of grace is a powerful practice but that when the time comes we must stand up for what is truth, act and sometimes fight for what is right.
I ask of you to join me in this urgency, to share in this call to shed truth and light about what is happening to the largest pachyderm on Earth.  The truth is, ten years from now, the majestic elephant could be extinct at the rate these beautiful animals are being tragically killed. 

My prayer today is directed towards Nairobi Kenya and the whole of China.  Why? Because both of these places are faced with intense negativity.  Coming together, infusing these places with light, love and positive intention for a shift in consciousness is a loving action you can do to help right now.  
The other 5 major things you can do to help shed truth and light about the concern for elephant safety are imperative and I have listed them for your ease and I ask that you join me today in securing their future. Lima Lima, the latest orphan to be brought to safety and nursed to health at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and nursed thanks you in advance.
