Today is day 12 of the 21 Day Dancing Freedom Challenge. This is a wonderful, inspiring, awakening, and alchemizing experience.

First four days were Earth, next four Water, and today we finished Fire … which included alchemy. Next up is Air and then Ether.

I know this way isn’t the way for everyone. Yet, I feel each person has their own unique style of releasing, connecting, surrendering, accepting, and allowing.

One lesson I continue to learn throughout this journey is to listen to internal nudges, hunches, and inspirations. I have ignored the dancing nudge for years …. Listen and KNOW there is a reason. xoxo

Here’s the Dancing Freedom facebook page. They close the challenge group two days after the challenge begins, yet, I’m sure you can sign up for the next one! xoxoxo https://www.facebook.com/DancingFreedom/

Hey, everyone! Every year around this time, I like to create something to fundraise and help my family attend the annual Chromosome 18 Family conference.

This year I am creating handmade notebooks which can be customized.

Here’s a sample. Let me know if you want one by commenting here or sending an email to my Mom at CamillaDowns @ gmail . com .
