    • This week's question asks: How has forgiveness impacted your life? From the time we are born until now, there are likely many moments where granting or being granted forgiveness has moved each of us. Whether on the giving or receiving side, forgiveness is deeply healing for all parties involved. Feel free to share a time that forgiveness was necessary for moving forward (whether as the giver or receiver). Or, simply share your thoughts on forgiveness. Consider any of the questions: Is forgiveness 'all or nothing'? What does forgiveness really mean? Is it clear or complex? Is it easier to forgive yourself or another? If any of these questions inspire you, feel free to share your thoughts ❤️  
    • @Paige PIlege - Yes, I love the mingling of the lower and higher energies. The heart embodied both the tangible and intangible so beautifully. I often practice the yoga asana pose 'gomukhasana', or 'cow face' pose. It is said to help balance the heart, and since it is a pose that is done on two sides, I often reflect upon the two directions of loving energy - the incoming and the outgoing, or the receiving and the giving. This reflection and pose symbolizes for me another 'balancing point' within this energy center. ❤️
    • @luma - I can feel how unsettling this would be, particularly when it's your first response after putting yourself out there as you did. In some cases, I agree that the resistance that rises from another person can be met with curiosity and kindness, probing the belief that says energy medicine is in opposition with faith. At other times, it's equally valid to ignore the comment and carry on with your own intuition and purpose. I think it could also help to consider the state of being of the person who meets you with such a comment - are they operating from love or from fear? Chances are their comments are rooted in fear.
    • Thank you, Paige.
