We celebrated the end of summer on Canandaigua Lake a few weeks ago, by honoring a local Native American tradition, Genundowah, Festival of Lights, or Ring of Fire as we know it.
The Seneca would burn tobacco and fires around the lake to give thanks for their bountiful harvest during the summer. They still hold a ceremony and light a fire atop the hill where I live, signaling everyone on the lake to join in the celebration by lighting a flare or a fire.
It's a lovely way to honor the seasons and offer gratitude to nature.
Every night as I lay in bed, just before sleep, I give thanks for the blessings in my life. I always feel it's good to go to sleep with gratitude in my heart.
Lots of Angel blessings to you,
Love, Elizabeth XOXO

I saw in the news that a young Iranian girl had been arrested for dancing in public. What a shame she can't express her happiness and joy through something so simple as dance. I wonder if the Shakti energy of this physical movement is what makes the Iranian authorities deem it improper or indecent.
We all have a choice and a purpose. This brave girl's soul has chosen to make public a restrictive religious law. BUT, it's not just Iran. Remember the movie Footloose? This dance ban was in a town in the United States up until 1980. There are a few other countries with public dancing without a license bans.
Why am I discussing this today?
When I read the story I realized just how lucky I am. I said this to my husband and he said "you made some good choices," and that's it. My soul made a choice. All the same, today I am counting my blessings and embracing the joy that my freedom to dance and express myself affords me.
I received a beautiful email today from an Intuitive Soul Circle member, a recipient of something I'm giving away. Her words touched my heart and soul, and reminded me that when we give we're not always aware of being given back to. We're also not always aware of the impact we have on others through our offerings.

One of the reasons you chose to incarnate on this planet was to learn more about who you are on a spiritual level. You came with a list of experiences that shape your journey. Just being here with me, means that your soul is guiding you to explore more about your choices, your destiny.
