Valerie Shakti Bottazzi Lake Siskiyou Mt Shasta

I am back in Mount Shasta after having been gone almost 6 weeks and my body-mind-soul is spinning in a million directions. During yesterday’s 10-10 portal of new beginnings, I went deep into inquiry to connect with “what’s next” in the way I am meant to serve.

During this inquiry, I become deeply aware of the dance that we do as a soul in a temple body. We crave connection, we crave LOVE, with others and with the divine within, yet sustaining a level of deep soulful connection 100% of the time in a world that is continuously throwing curve balls at you is not always easy to do! Right?

This message is to remind you to keep your sight on your compass’ north and relax when the waves of life pull you wayward… We may journey far too different sides but when our heart is pure of intent we will undoubtedly find our north once again. And guess what? All those meanders will actually enrich your life with the gift of perspective. The counterpoint of high-low, dark-light, difficult-easy and so one, is the true teacher guiding us towards oneness.

So, no matter where you find yourself in your way, steering away from your north or seeking to come back to the center, trust the waves that are rocking your boat because you are exactly where you need to be. Ask connecting to your heart to be Guided, focus your intention in technicolor (meaning…  play in your mind’s screen the feeling and emotions, and colors of your desires), and relinquish control of the how. After doing this, do “the work”, keep tuning into your heart, and trust your Guidance.

With love,


“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
