Be Still, My Heart
Organic Looseleaf & Caffeine~Free Herbal Tea
In these powerful shifts of healing and change within our experience here, we may encounter waves of heaviness, sadness or grief. Sometimes we feel lost, shut down and unsettled in our hearts. Grief is circular...it comes in and out of our lives like the tides of the sea. When caught between the place of prayer and action, fear or love, grief or gratitude…we often need to pause. Even if only for a moment to collect our thoughts…to dive beneath our surface and feel our emotions fully, to navigate our internal worlds and to come to a place of inner peace to create the actions necessary for forward motion.
