We are living in a time of great awakening and transformation both individually and collectively. We are in a process of Awakening together and with Gaia (Mother Earth) and the human heart holds the keys to our transformation at both a personal and planetary level. The Heart is the seat of our vital force, our spiritual essence and our deepest feeling and aliveness. It is the space where all polarities resolve and we actually experience the essence of who we are and unity consciousness itself.
