With summer upon us we not only get to enjoy the beautiful warm weather. Those of us who love to sit in the quiet of their garden often get to view and enjoy as well the many species of butterflies that flitter from flower to flower and land softly and gently so close to us.

In February during a Power Animal Workshop that I ran, a number of the women attending got Elephant as their power animal. It was a wonderful and empowering experience for them and for the rest of us as well, because we got to hear about their encounter with their Elephant and we were in awe of all they shared.

Exactly what those individuals needed for where they are, what they are doing, and where they are going in their professional as well as personal lives. You see, Elephant medicine is that of the Sacred Feminine. The Goddess Connection!
