There is so much to be thankful for for all of us. I am so thankful for all the people in my life. In the almost 20 years since Eden Revisited was incorporated, several thousand of people have attended, learned, and now share what they learned with others. Like ripples in a pond, love and learning go streaming out to go where they are needed. I have so much to be thankful, and I am surely thankful for each of you.
Eden is closed as of December 9th for the holidays, and reopens January 4th. Mark your calendars. And for those who asked for the PENDULUM class, don't forget Part I is Sunday the 1st. Part 2 is on the 7th. Our last REIKI I class is 11/14 and by your request, there will be Discovering Your Spirit Animals on the 12th from 700 - 9:00. Would love to see you soon
I stepped out of the darkness, out of MY darkness
Out of my prison of self-loathing
Out of my fear and out of my desperate loneliness
I crawled trembling and timid out of myself
Joyfully, I did not die
Prayerfully, I rejoiced
I stripped off my chains of bondage
And laughing, ran into the Light
To claim my divinity and my destiny
To claim my beauty and accept my own love
To declare my wholeness,
To feel my Lightness
To share my heart and my Soul.

Changing the World
The following words were written on the tomb of an Anglican Bishop in the Crypts of Westminster Abbey:
When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country.
But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize:
If I had only changed my self first, then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country and, who knows,
I may have even changed the world.
Let go of the shoulds in your life.
Open up to the miracle of now.
Value your uniqueness
Explore your dreams and passions.
Yield to life – go with the flow.
Obey the voice of your spirit.
Unwind – get cozy and comfy.
Renew yourself – body and soul.
Surround yourself with caring people
Express yourself – be true to you.
Linger longer at what you enjoy.
Feel God’s special love for you.
Have a wonderful month of giving thanks
for the love and joy in our lives.
