Principles of Life

Don't remember where I got this from, but it's truth... & wanted to share. I thought the words go well with this beautiful necklace.

Principles of life
Not a single snowflake falls accidentally in the wrong place

Whom ever you encounter is the right one, no one comes into our lives by chance. Everyone we interact with is there to teach us, represent something or to help improve a current situation.

Whatever happened is the only thing that could have happened - there is no if onlys.

Each moment in which something begins is the right moment. When we are meant for something new in our life, it is there ready to begin.

What is over is over - when something in our life ends, it helps our evolution, better to let go and move on...

Cancer New Moon

Cancer New Moon

We’re starting a new cycle in all things home, family, self care, and nurturing. Cancer is a sign that invites us to make time for the things that matter the most. It is our roots as well as the foundation we call home. It’s nostalgia, memories, and emotional connections. Over the coming lunar cycle, we will plant our seeds in support of these themes. The new moon is exact at 4:08 am EDT on June 27, 2014 and 5 degrees Cancer.

Like watering a plant and giving it plenty of sunlight, Cancer reminds us that we need to feed and nurture for the things that sustain us in life. After the rough couple of months we’ve had, what better time than to check in and engage in a little self care.

So, surrender your sorrows, your fears, your untended grief, and give it up to the Divine Mother. If you need to cry, cry.

Love Poem by Victor Hugo

As Valentine's Day approaches I thought I'd post a beautiful poem by Victor Hugo considered one of the greatest french romantic poets in English and French:

Love always! Love more!
When love is gone, hope escapes us.
Love is the cry of the dawn
Love is the hymn of the night

What the streams say to the shore,
What the wind says to the old mountains,
What the stars say to the clouds,
Is one ineffable word: Love!

Love makes one think, live and believe.
Love warms the heart,
A ray of light more than glory
And this ray is happiness!

Love! whether we praise or blame them
Big hearts will always love:
Join this youth of the soul
To the youth of your brow!

Aimons toujours ! Aimons encore !
Quand l'amour s'en va, l'espoir fuit.
L'amour, c'est le cri de l'aurore,
L'amour c'est l'hymne de la nuit.

Ce que le flot dit aux rivages,
Ce que le vent dit aux vieux monts,
Ce que l'astre dit aux nuages,
C'est le mot ineffable : Aimons !

L'amour fait songer, vivre et croire.
Il a pour réchauffer le coeur,
Un rayon de plus que la gloire,
Et ce rayon c'est le bonheur !

Aime ! qu'on les loue ou les blâme,
Toujours les grand coeurs aimeront :
Joins cette jeunesse de l'âme
A la jeunesse de ton front !
