Spirit is universal and it holds a constant invitation to connect to parts of our being in different ways throughout our journey. We are all spirits having a human experience. Where do you first go when in the thick of earthly tasks that may ask us to compromise our truth, integrity, and ways of being? What happens when we face an obstacle and have exhausted all options? At what points in our lives do we invite spirit for help or for guidance? How can we keep ourselves healthy, aligned with our well-being and connected to spirit? How can we honor our own spiritual connection to the divine?
