November and the Birch

I love this month as the Birch tree is one of my favorites.
I also love this illustration from my book The Healing Power of Trees.
Meraylah Allwood is the illustrator and she lives in England. I think she does amazing work!

Thinking about new beginnings and letting go of judgments and old beliefs. I like the idea of opening my eyes to a new way of looking at the world.  Thinking of a whole new year of life as I begin  turning the Wheel of the Year. This always begins in the dark half of the year, and just like a seed in the dark deep earth, my new plans and new dreams are gestating. I am gathering up all of the resources within myself to create a new. There is magic in this and there is love. And I am grateful that I am still here and that there is still so much to do, so much to lend my energies to.  I have a dream for a better life in which we protect our resources and work with Mother Earth to keep her healthy and happy. She is already a paradise; and we just don't realize the beauty and perfection that she offers us.  Those are my thoughts for today. I send love out in the ethers. Best, Sharlyn
