The Mystery of Love

Love is knocking on your door inviting you to dance with its infinite mystery, will you be daring and brave enough to answer the call?

Gently, gently open your eyes

and look at the face of Love

gaze at her intoxicating eyes!

Let her smiling face have your heart

into her infinite garden.

Taste the sweetness of her fruit

drink the scent of her roses and dance

swaying like a willow in the wind.

Forsake worldly pleasures

for the deeper fulfillment

of the infinite mystery of Love.


I know that I have shared this poem before with you on several occasions. I love the invitation that Rumi shares with us here in his words. I am committed to discovering and connecting with this deep love within me, around me. I am committed to really exploring its magical and mystical realm beyond the love that I have and continue to experience in my relationship with my beautiful man. I am committed to bringing love to all those places within me that are wounded and/or hiding, When I bring the light of love into these spaces within me, I feel lighter, more joyful, more peaceful and softer. Love is softening my being, my protective edges that I put in place unconsciously as a means to protect myself from being hurt again and again in various ways.

What I know for sure is that my soul craves to know more about the infinite mystery of love...what a journey it is...magical, and mysterious. I have stumbled so many times yet I keep coming back to it over and over again because I want love to have its way with me not fear!

In temple you are invited into the embodiment of your deepest feminine essence where Love is your guiding light. Are you in touch with this deep feminine essence within you?

Do you yearn to explore it?

I don't know about you but living life on auto pilot or based on what others have told on how to live my life, is soul crushing for me. It's not how I want to live ! I have this deep yearning within me to live a really deep meaningful life. For me that is not about all of my accomplishments or the toys, goodies or worldly possessions I can get my hands onto. I long for conscious sisterhood with women who are open to sharing what they truly ache for. I long to spend time with sisters who are real, authentic and who will stand in the centre of the fire with me. I long to romance my soul with experiences that nourish me at the deepest level of my being.

I really want to know, what do you ache for deep in the core of your being?

I want to know what it would feel like for you to speak your aches, to be witnessed and to know that your ache matters to me, to your sisters?

I want know what would it feel like for you to be nestled in a warm blanket of love and to feel supported in a way that matters to you? On that note, do you know how to ask for support that you need or do you simply assume the world around you should know by reading your wonderful ever changing mind and thus act accordingly?

dear one , what would it feel like to participate in a festival of love where you are seen, heard and accepted for who you are in this moment? Read this again and again....let it seep into your being. Will you give yourself the permission to fully receive this love?

For me, temple is a sacred oasis where we have an opportunity to explore all of this plus experience strengthening our connection to our heart center , and to our beautiful , bountiful bodies, Temple is a place I get to practice the acceptance of me , of others and to really be in the presence of love and deep compassion.

Love is knocking on your door inviting you to dance with its infinite mystery. will you be daring and brave enough to answer the call? or will you once again put it off and hope that some day, some day perhaps, you will make the time to explore the aches you so deeply desire to give a voice to? This is your life and you get to choose how you show up.

dear beautiful heart, will you dare to be brave enough to say yes to your big beautiful heart. If not now, then when? Will you dare say Yes to the aches calling your name?

If so will you join me in conscious sisterhood , on Saturday October 26 at the RA Centre , here in Ottawa, On. YOu can buy your ticket here:
