Greetings from the Northwoods.

Koda and I are welcoming the fall season in the forest . . . she’s teaming up with the neighbor dogs to chase chipmunks and I’m enjoying sunrises from the dock and watching the trees change color from one moment to the next.

I really love being able to work up here. It has such a different vibe . . . I feel deeply connected with nature, myself, and life in ways I don’t when I’m at home, in the city.

Over the past year, life has changed direction for me. It’s changed in ways that were both unexpected and warmly welcome. My time in the forest revealed a new way of being . . . I think one that I’ve been hungry for but could not recognize without simply leaning into the unfolding of it.

When life changes directions, we find ourselves standing at the threshold of the unknown. This is often not a comfortable place to be. It is often frightening. The path before us is unclear and the gift in taking the leap can often feel elusive.

But as this summer is coming to a close and I am reflecting upon the leap of faith Chris and I took in saying yes to purchasing this land, I find myself deeply grateful.

Yes, life changed direction. I am deeply grateful I leaned in and allowed it to unfold in ways I could not imagine.

In this week’s episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast, I sink deeper into this conversation. It’s a raw, real, and vulnerable episode. Know that it is coming from my heart to yours. I invite you to tune in here:

Wishing you a joy-filled week!

with love and crystals, Lori
