An ever-lasting possibility to shift consciousness, an initiation to ceremony, an invocation of material witnessing, gratitude extension, and water as our collective conduit. Summoning strength. Sensing the unseen. A pulsating push from the heart to channel inspiration. Close your eyes and make a wish.
