I’m LOVING spring in Minnesota and how the branches are BLOOMING! It helps me to bloom too! I was overjoyed to be found by this dreamy spot on a rainy day walk! Shared with much love & encouragement, xox Rachel

In consideration of colors

By Rachel Awes on April 25, 2021

One of my therapy clients said that red and purple are her favorite colors. I was struck by how those colors compose the outer edges of a rainbow. And then my mind became transfixed. It was difficult to hear anything else. I was a deer in the headlights. Time stopped. The thing is, I want to cooperate with the colors. I wish to be stunned by the beauty you speak of and absorb it for a while. Might you also consider such a place to dwell? It’s not so bad to be stuck in a rainbow… Would you like to join me and consider some of your favorite colors and have them near you, let them tend to you, and consider the lovely things they invite you to remember or newly consider? All with love, Rachel

I’ve been listening to some of my therapy clients talk about the importance of their internal lives being in alignment with their external actions and relationships. If you love apple trees, might you consider planting them? If you love kindness, is it demonstrated in the people who are near? If you are a poet at heart, are you tasting words? All shared with love for your precious alignment and life, xox, Rachel
