One of my former students texted me just after Thanksgiving. She’d had a recurring dream in which her grandma (who passed some years ago) kept telling her that she had an important message for her, but first, she must drink her coffee. She said the coffee was very important. When she was little, she would make coffee for her grandmother. It was a sacred ritual for them.

It is the part that exists above our personality, our ego, and our history. It transcends time and place. It helps us to transcend our trauma and our drama.

We begin to understand how we are getting in our own way. When we stay connected to our higher selves, we begin to live our life in alignment with its wisdom. Through this journey of awakening, we evolve into who we are meant to be,
