Shapeshifting allows us to experience life from a completely different perspective. In this way, we are able to broaden our perception of ourselves, of the world around us, and our relationship to it.
Water medicine, then, is perfect for when we are in need of emotional healing and renewal, when we need to attune to our intuition and inner wisdom, when we are seeking inspiration, and when we feel a calling to explore what is dwelling beneath the surface in our hearts, for example, when we are working with our Shadow.
By working honestly and openly with the Shadow, we become more authentic and whole. We gain deeper self awareness and self acceptance, and we have greater compassion and empathy for others. We are more grounded, more centered, and are able to communicate and express ourselves with greater confidence and clarity, which inevitably leads to more genuine and harmonious relationships with the people in our lives. We may also feel more energized — on a physical level as well as mentally, emotionally and spiritually — and more attuned to our creativity.
Spring is here — pregnant with invigorating energy that primes us for renewal and rebirth, for new potential and new momentum, and ultimately for stimulating change.
Creating sacred space for ourselves in our homes helps us to feel more calm and centered in our bodies, and is a great way to enhance our meditation practice and soul work. Sacred inner space is the tranquil atmosphere we create for the psyche — where we can go even deeper in our meditation and even further in our soul work.
The Moon is said to govern our inner world — our shadow self — reflecting our deepest fears and most profound desires back to us and charging the well of our intuition and creativity. Each phase in her cycle is marked by a distinct ebb and flow of powerful lunar energy, and by aligning with her cycle we can keep ourselves in balance and better regulate our intentions, monitoring where we are and how to best move forward.

Releasing soul clutter creates space for new energy to come in; You clear energy that is blocked and move energy that is stagnant.
Animal spirits come to us with great wisdom to share, to help us heal and to help us grow. They act as our teachers, our guides, our allies, our challengers and our protectors. They encourage us to find balance and harmony, they bring to us courage and strength, they show us how to adapt, how to stand our ground, and they reflect to us the great wisdom inherent in ourselves already.
Like fresh snow that covers the ground in pure white, Winter is our blank slate. We enter this phase after moving through a period of release or loss; Perhaps we have decided to end a friendship or relationship, quit a job, or change careers altogether. Perhaps we have lost a loved one, or our home. It could be leaving a city — or a country even — and moving somewhere new. Whatever the case, we have let go of something familiar and find ourselves in a realm of unfamiliar, and in this new space we are faced with the task of redefining and redesigning who we are and how we want to express ourselves.
