This video was sent to me via email by a dear neighbor and friend, and it simply said “You should see this.” Well, I did and I think you ALL should see it!!
This message and these gorgeous images are perfect inspiration for the New Moon in Leo that happens tomorrow. Please allow yourself 10 short minutes to open your heart to gratitude, to living in the moment, and to moving through each and every day as though it were both your first day of life, and your very last one.
I promise you’ll feel a shift in your heart if you watch.
The video is a TED Talk by Louie Schwartzberg and within the TED Talk is one of his short films:
Louie Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades providing breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials.
This piece includes his short film on Gratitude and Happiness. Brother David Steindl-Rast’s spoken words, Gary Malkin’s musical compositions and Louie’s cinematography make this a stunningly beautiful piece, reminding us of the precious gift of life, and the beauty all around us.
One of my most faithful clients, Andrea Lea, Owner/Trainer/Yogi of Embody Studio in Covington, GA, wrote this to me just a couple of days ago and sent it out to her clients to introduce me to them for an upcoming event that I’m doing there.
Here’s the testimonial:
“I cannot tell you how much I have gotten out of my many, many consultations with Michelle! I first went to her when my daughter and I were in our most difficult stage EVER and I got so much clarity from Michelle on our relationship that the months-long challenge seemed to dissolve almost immediately.
I am not well-versed enough in how astrology works to try to explain it to you. Just know that Michelle is not into trying to predict your future – it is surprisingly scientific and you will be amazed at what riddles she can help you solve. Always – ALWAYS – I come away from a session with Michelle feeling inspired and calmer, and that I am a part of a great mystery that is infinite in its reaches. And THAT brings me a smile and a sense of peace like you won’t believe! Sometimes, it feels like you have strayed from the path – with Michelle I am always reminded that I am on the path, right where I need to be, mystery and all.
Expect to be shocked at how this total stranger understands your deep emotional complexities (and those of your kids/husbands/wives/biz partners)AND gives you concrete tools to transcend the icky parts! Really.”
I was truly humbled when I read this. And of course I was in touch with Andrea to give her all my gratitude! You never know how you will affect someone, and it’s always a source of joy and amazement to hear that your work is… working! I just had to share…
The Total Solar Eclipse that honored Planet Earth on Aug. 1, 2008 at 6:22 AMEDT, is one that’s almost purely LEO energetically. At the time of the Eclipse the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, the South Node of the Moon and the Ascendant (the Ascendant from an Eastern Daylight Time perspective) were all in the creative, courageous sign of Leo! And these planets were situated such that they didn’t connect strongly with any other planets. Eclipses are major movers and shakers. They stir up stagnant energy and open new vortices of power. They are intense, hard to ignore and can be felt for months (some claim years) after the event. Eclipses proclaim, “Out with the old and in with the new!” What does it all mean? It means that right now, and for many months to come, the heart, the organ of life and vitality ruled by Leo, has the capacity to be fully engaged. This Eclipse sets up a long-term energetic pattern that supports our ability to connect to our heart’s desire’s, our life purpose, and pushes us to fully and creatively engage in determining our perfect future. It means that if we ever wanted to be the benevolent, strong, courageous ruler of our own life, now is the time to embark. It means that this is the time to listen to your heart, and then act on what it’s telling you! What brings you joy? What makes you feel vitally alive and true to yourself? What sparks your creativity and gets you completely enthusiastic? Answer these questions and you’ll get the answer to your life path. Right now we are being asked to listen fully to our hearts and to commit to our Soul purpose. If you’re saying “YES” and getting goose bumps — then go ahead and allow a total eclipse of your heart! The Universe is supporting you!
