Have a wonderful Aurora Dreamflight

Thank you Laura! I have noticed that the more love, care, gratitude and appreciation we put in to a moment-to whatever tasks, or interaction with others the better everything goes. It’s like tuning the radio dial to just shift to a more joyful loving “station” / frequency.

Multidimensional Ocean

Wishing you all a wonderful night, and if you are going on the Aurora dreamflight, I hope that you will have a very revealing session!
Love is everywhere around us and within us! don’t forget that folks! It is what keeps this world together, it is the only thing that really matters. When you do something, try doing it with as much love and care as you possibly can this weekend, and with much consciousness, aka light!
