Happy New Year….Welcome 2014

Ok people listen up. It's been an intense year for many of us, we've struggled and learned and we are not the same people we were a few years ago! The energies of today and tonight are intense and they are building into a huge release of all that has held us back in past times. There is still darkness and always will be but now the light shines forth stronger than ever. Take tonight to fully realize who your are, your power to manifest change and to move forward into the age of light and life. Mindfully keep your balance, joyfully spread love and acceptance and make glorious plans for this new year because we can tell you unequivocally that it's going to be an amazing one. We're very very blessed to know you all in this time and place. HAPPY NEW YEAR… ~Shanti and Buck (December 31st)
