“Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth,
and distance. What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his world and the meaning
of the rolling hills that reach to the far horizon?”

Spirituality & Health: How to Practice Conscious Dance for Emotional Healing
by Julie Peters
Promote healing in your life by using these conscious dance practices, whether in a group or alone in the comfort of your home.
If you can walk, you can dance, as the saying goes. Dance is a fundamentally healing and life-affirming practice. It is a wonderful way to move the body, feel the beat, and move emotions and even trauma through the body, especially when we dance in an intuitive way.

Look for Mintaka in Orion’s Belt
See the three stars at Orion the Hunter’s midsection? These stars are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. In fact, they’re very noticeable and famous in many cultures as Orion’s Belt. For instance, to the Aymara people of Bolivia, Peru and Chile, they represent a celestial bridge. And there’s good reason for that. These stars link the sky’s northern and southern hemispheres.

DARE TO RISK
“To try is to risk failure. But risk must be taken because the greatest hazard of life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, live, and love.”
— Leo Buscaglia
Daring to risk is an essential step to self empowerment. This is the key to breaking out of stuck thinking and behaviour. It is about breaking through the comfort zones and barriers. It is about experiencing new levels of mind and feelings. It is about experiencing more life.
“A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”
— George Bernard Shaw
“Only those who risk going too far can know how far they can go.”
— Unknown source

There may be very little that you can change or have much effect on today. It may not exactly feel like the day has been fated to be a certain way, but you may have that suspicion at times. You can fit in with whatever happens and get some satisfaction and success anyway. Someone who usually argues against you may turn around and agree with you about something important.
