The time got away from Didi and I’s conversation today about how the cycles of the moon can relate to your cycle. Energies flow from all around us, we need to pay attention to which ones are telling us something. Because there is a power in finding your flow and which energy your body creates.

"We can all heal together." - Deanne Ziadie

Didi has such an appreciation for life and all it has to offer. She pays attention to the energies around her and how it relates to the moon, the seasons and the elements around us. This can help decrease the stress that our bodies sometimes get overwhelmed with.
