Where do you find your freedom?
Recently I shared a story on my adventure going south for the winter as it has been a dream of mine. This year I got to watch that dream unfold in real time as I packed up my car, drove down to Virginia, and headed on the Amtrak rail south to Florida.

What is common? Occurring, found, or done often; prevalent.
Ok, so why do you care that these two words have different meanings? Here is a story that will shed some light on the topic of why understanding the difference between what is actually normal vs what is common in our society, our behaviors, and how we feel.

Flying up, grounding down
Dealing with the ups and downs of past trauma.
Flying up, grounding down.
As I write this, I am on a flight from New York to Michigan. I thought it to be a little ironic to write about grounding down into your root chakra when I’m flying through the air at 30,000 feet above the ground.
