In a moment of deep reflection last night, I realized how different cities I’ve been frequenting through Western Washington feel like they have generally lined up with chakra energy centers for me.
Bellingham: Crown (connection to the divine)
Seattle: Third Eye (intuition, intellect, sense of direction in life)
Tacoma: Throat (communication, self-expression)
Olympia: Heart (love, relationships, forgiveness, and compassion)

No wonder it’s been challenging to move more fully into Olympia..
it’s the heart of the state, a place of deep heart work, and it's the place where my heart begun to learn how to dance and let itself unfold. <3
And oh-- how every single thing feels like it's on fire and covered in sackcloth and ashes for so many people right now (both literally and even more literally) with death both near and far, deep sense of loss, and wildfires abounding.
Oh, how we mourn and yearn
and learn in every turn
to return to ourselves
as we tire and retire..
Remember to breathe-- if you can
through the mazes of haze
and many a phase
it amazes me
that there is more
yet to be uncovered.
And within the New Moon,
In the shadow of purest light,
In both the figure and the ground,
“There Awaits Still Transcendence”
And you’ll see
