Calendar of Events

Take the time to pause for some inner reflection. 
Sometimes the best thing we can do for our own development and growth is to just silence the outer world and go within.

- Lauren Heistad


November 2016

They are sure to point you in the right direction and create that enlightened, balanced state of being you desire.  There are also many wonderful workshops and opportunities coming up at SOULworks that definitely help with finding your balance.

SOULworks Inspiration and Guidance by Lauren Heistad


Pause in Time and Find the Balance

I was taking the time for inner reflection when I received an amazing email from a dear friend who works within SOULworks. Instead of finding my own words of inspiration this month, I have decided to share her words with you today. I trust you will enjoy the pearls of wisdom as much as I did.

Just breathe through it. I know it seems dumb and impossible, but start. You will feel the release almost instantly. It is like you have all these ropes tied around you and you are frustrated about not being able to escape them. I can feel it. Exactly.

Know that you can escape as you have the map to your own consciousness and regardless of what you are being guided to currently, you can pump the brakes and take a rest or take a back seat and enjoy the ride for a bit, if that is what your soul needs. Nobody is judging you here - just you. You are not letting anyone down (not here on earth and not even Spirit) by honouring you and providing yourself with the time you need.

Things have been flowing and amping up very quickly recently, and although it is exciting to watch everything rising and opening up, it also begs us the time to observe what is changing within ourselves. See the changes, feel the changes and watch newness settle in. This settling in time is where the comfort will surround you and you will find your footing again.

You will always find the way as you always do. Ask for help if you need. Your team surrounds you both in Spirit and here on earth.

Love and hugs to you my friend,
Patty Dale
