From Erin Hayden:

“I had a vivid dream two orcas were circling me letting me know it is alright. Inviting me to swim deeper under the water. Orcas have an ancient connection to the stars and in dreams often remind us that all the knowledge and wisdom we need is already within us. I’m following this impulse, stepping out of fear, pulling in, swimming freely from one silver sticker to the next. Going under trusting. An invitation for anyone who wants to join in.”
