Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Celebrate Life

Celebrate today. The sun came up, the birds sang, the fall flowers are putting splashes of yellow, orange, and red around the yard. The Nature Elementals are busy whispering to the plants encouragement in order to give them that last push before the frost says its time to rest.

I, too, walk about and wonder will this be the last day I see the trumpet-like flowers on the squash vines? Will this be the last tomato, zucchini, or cucumber until next year?

When you garden you get to experience life through the evolution of the plants--seed, birth, nurturing, sustenance, wisdom transition, death--there is much more but you get the idea. This time of year I need to stay present to moment-to-moment awareness and allow the lush experience to envelop me fully. So today I celebrate.
