The Canvas of Your Life
View this email in your browser
"No matter what challenge you may be facing, you must remember that while the canvas of your life is painted with daily experiences, behaviors, reactions, and emotions, you're the one controlling the brush. If I had known this at 21, I could have saved myself a lot of heartache and self-doubt. It would have been a revelation to understand that we are all the artists of our own lives - and that we can use as many colors and brushstrokes as we like." - Oprah Winfrey

The above quote is a reminder to continuously find ways to sustain a connection to your center, to that part of you that knows that you are in the drivers seat in your life. You hold the paintbrush that creates both the picture and narrative that inform your perspective and subsequent decisions.

In the tarot, the Wheel of Fortune card broadly represents that archetype of change. It's a reminder that, in life, we go through cycles that include highs and lows, deaths and births, losses and gains, connections and disconnections, intimacy and isolation, love and fear, anger and exhilaration, etc. And through it all the Wheel tells us that it's not these moments that define our experience, it's how we regard them from our most centered and aligned self. The Wheel is an invitation to steady yourself when inevitable change comes.

Since my intention for the year is "sovereignty" it is my humble duty to remind myself and others that we can dance through a whirlwind of change with grace, support and perspective. To that end, I am offering an ArcanaDance mini-retreat on the Wheel of Fortune on Saturday, February 25, 2017, 11:00am - 5:00pm, $125. Let me know if you are interested in joining me for the "Dance of Holding Your Center Through the Winds of Change." Location TBA and information will be posted on my website soon. To reserve your spot, email me at
