Penguin comes to replace chaos with order. When the mind and environment are in upheaval it is important to step back and calm down so that next right action can be seen and then taken.

An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or divinity. All of creation is a representation of Divinity…is Divine.

The “Ex-Voto” series are animal saints that one can light a candle in offering and thanks for being blessed with the energy/ attributes of that animal.

Insight can be gained in all areas of our lives if we are willing to open up and allow ourselves to receive what is always there to be understood.

Affirmation: When I am feeling overwhelmed,  I allow myself to take a deep breath to calm my mind so that what is truly the next right action can be taken.
