This last month I participated in a 21 day Lakshmi Sadhana. Every morning, I made it part of my practice to take long quiet walks. While the kids still slept, I tiptoed out into the soft light and let myself receive whatever the day had to offer.
Breathing in the lilac scented air, I watched in awe as the abundance of nature came out to meet me. One day it was dozens of baby bunnies, the next, a rattlesnake, then a gentle deer. Yesterday, I was blown away as this fantastically huge and ancient snapping turtle walked right into the street in front of me. I have never seen anything like that here, it was absolutely magical. Feeling drenched in grace and deeply grateful. Om Shrim, Lakshmi Namaha!
