WISE WORDS FROM MBALI CREAZZO, Mother of the 29gifts.org movement
“Our Divine Medicine is the remembering of the medicine we carry to heal ourselves. It is our unique gift, the gift to share with the world. That is divine work. The old ones believe we come into to the world with medicine, a purpose. We are alight when we are living our life fully by igniting our creative fire. The community thrives when we offer our gifts and talents for the greater good of all beings.”

WISE WORDS FROM MBALI CREAZZO, medicine woman and Mother of our 29gifts.org movement.
"One of my favourite gifts to give is presence. We are living in a world of such high technology where people are distracted all the time and so what I learnt when I was teaching massage therapists to work in hospitals was to say to them, ‘The biggest gift you can give is presence and witnessing’. So when people are talking to me, for me it is really letting everything else go that is going on with me at that moment and just doing what we are doing right now. Which is making eye contact, which is really listening, people don’t tend to really listen – we hear but we are not really listening. So I think healing and presence is one of the greatest gift anyone of us can give."

"With the second full moon in this month, on January the 31st also a super moon, the window of darkness will close and the light shall emerge, and we shall have vision. The old ones tell me this. A period of relief from the chaos will bless us, it seems. Watch this space I am waiting with baited breath."
