This is a month to…see the beauty around you, whether in the harmony of your environment, your creativity, or your relationships. As one attains the grace of accepting the beauty that is offered in all parts of life, then that is reflected back to you in the beauty of your manifestations. Zora ~ A Soul Collective
We've entered a time of accelerated personal evolution. Our heightened sensibilities are awakening, both individually and as a collective. As we move boldly into uncharted territory, feeling the inner stretch and seeking sign posts in this foreign land: we are prompted to let go of old attachments and conditioning, finding balance between fully receiving what we need for ourselves, while also genuinely considering, caring for and collaborating with others. We practice working with the discomfort that inevitably comes with change. We dig deeper to uncover the vein of wisdom within that rises to meet and guide us along our path in ways we never thought possible.
This transformational time calls us to…

In our September Circle, certified ShadowWork® facilitator and author, Nathalie Jackson gently and firmly guided us to explore the shadow side of our inner child, uncover our deeper needs, and access our innate resources to feel more fully supported on our personal path.
Getting curious about the parts of ourselves that typically hide out behind socially acceptable masks is a potent approach to self-empowerment.
We often refer to our inner wisdom as “the part of you that always knows”, that part of us that holds the key to our inner peace and happiness: deep connection, true meaning, deep fulfilment, love. But we also struggle with not always being able to hear that wise voice clearly. Which is why we seek out and practice robust tools for deep listening: we want to intentionally nurture our innate capacity for hearing ourselves at that deeper level.
One of the most effective ways to do that is to welcome your shadow home.
Being willing to see, feel and acknowledge the parts of ourselves we judge or dislike, and instead invite all our awkward aspects into the light, we free up life force energy and open our lives to infinite possibility, rich connections and daily joy.
This might seem like a daunting task at first.
A simple way to start is by using your favourite tool to get grounded in yourself — always embark upon this kind of deep work by first finding your centre. Then invite a part of yourself that may have been hiding out for a long time to come and sit with you...
Spend some time with this part of yourself that has been ignored or diminished...or perhaps over developed? Feel into how that aspect is in need of some balanced attention, some care, perhaps some love.
Consider how each of these and many more parts of you that sit at the 'round table' of your life can both be of service to your larger intentions, and also hinder you from shining in your fullest light.
