The Invitation for Co-Creation

What intentions are you inviting in during this season of your life?

There have been many times over the course of my journey where if I’m being honest with myself, didn’t really know what I wanted out of my experience in this life. I may have had a few goals or desires which would drive my daily actions, but looking at it from a big-picture perspective, my intentions for my own path of self-mastery were somewhat vague.

I knew I wanted something more out of life, but I wasn’t exactly sure what, or how to get it.

For me, this process began with an invitation from my own heart to truly honor and adore myself as beloved.

Those of you that know me know that my birth name isn’t Adora. It’s actually Dorothy — Dorothy Julia rather. Adora came to me a little over 20 years ago when I was in The Barbara Brennan School of Healing. The consciousness of Adora is really unique because the name itself, from Latin, Italian, and Spanish actually means honoring, adoration, and the beloved one.

That was the teaching that the consciousness of Adora as a teacher and healer brought to me as a precious gift. It brought me through a process of recapitulation, when we go back and recollect all…
