After two weeks of Brian being retired from firefighting, I’ve realized that I am literally breathing more deeply.
I knew I was always subconsciously aware of what he faced at his job and what could happen. Those possibilities and realities always loomed, quietly ~ pondered in a moment and then tucked away inside me.
Truly, the unknowns of life are present for us all regardless of occupation, but we know that some take on another level of challenge. Our firefighters and other first responders most certainly do.

I knew I was always aware of this in the back of my mind and heart….
I now know that it was far more than I ever knew.
This has been part of our relationship since the moment we met, since we joined our lives, since I gave him my heart. Now my heart beats more calmly.
Ahhhhhh……. Another deeper breath…..
Profound divine thanks that my man came through his 32+ years of firefighting as he has and is the man he is.
that I am now breathing far easier than I ever knew I could.
Our journey continues with many adventures
and that feeling of TOGETHERness
is BEYOND even what we had known before this.
Love is your greatest strength. 🌹 ✨ ✨
Bring a quiet stillness within and allow the whispers of your own soul. ❤️
There is a restoration and aligning offered in the energy here. ✨
I was guided to create this altar today. It is a love infused gift, to each of us. ✨
A depth of soul is present, along with profound empathy, fierce gentle Grace, forgiveness across lifetimes, community encircling, hearts unifying, sisterhood restored, brotherhood honored, Belovedness embodied and The Way of Love alive. 🌹
May you know how much you are loved. ✨
Dancing in the flames,
on fire with her self possession and sacred purpose….
Tonight in the dark hours before tomorrow’s total solar eclipse I am sitting beneath the stars in soulful solitude with the fire, as rain drops gently caress me, and I saw this amazing moment transpire. I feel the truth of it pulsing through me.
“There is a River flowing now very fast… Know the river has its destination…
The Elders say WE must let go of the Shore, push off toward the middle of the River, keep OUR eyes open, and our heads above the water… See who is there with YOU and CELEBRATE.”…..~ Hopi Elders
The lyrics of Carly Simon’s song “Let the River Run” are a gorgeous accompaniment to this Hopi prophecy and a source of profound encouragement at this time of so much upheaval and Shift in our country and around the world….. “Let the dreamers wake the nation.”
We most certainly live in “interesting times” as the old expression goes… Let us FLOW with the River of new paradigm possibility. Change is coming….
Let’s dream it awake, Together. So Much Love, DeAnne
This creation is an invitation, a remembrance and a celebration of the sacred union within ourselves, in our relationships and in our world. I created it with a deep sense of love, multi-layered awareness and humble awe. It was first shown to a small group at our collaborative Sacred Union Evening on April 30, 2016. Today, I vulnerably share it with you.
Today, May 22, 2016, I am also offering this on my own 23rd wedding anniversary in honor of the beloved love I have found within myself, in my life, and in the connection I now share with my husband, Brian. The image of the toes touching shown in this video are our actual toes as we sat together happily at the beach this year.
And now I offer the message I placed on this video creation:
This is an intimate remembrance and a timeless, soulful invitation to sacred union. It is a call to bring honoring, mutual respect and harmonious balance to the feminine and masculine energies within us and throughout our world, one person at a time.
The song “Thousand Years” had a potent, soul resonant feel to me from the very first time I heard it…. I felt it as a beloved timeless love song between souls, an invocation from the divine, a remembrance of the inner and outer balance of the divine feminine and divine masculine and a call from the Sacred to Awaken and embody this inner marriage, this sacred union, and this balance in our world…. It is a multilayered love song across time, both divine and human. It recalls an eternal invitation to enter into this union within ourselves first and foremost and to create that sacred marriage in our intimate relationships beyond our precious selves.
For me, I hear too…. the voices of Jesus and his beloved Mary Magdalene and all the avatar beloveds across time. With these lyrics, I hear them in turn and together speak to our hearts and souls… inviting, encouraging, reminding and loving us as we walk our paths each day and take each breath and each step.
May we recognize that we are the ones we have waited for….and embody this Way of Love.
“One Step Closer……”
~ This is an offering of love. May it touch your heart.
Blessings & Profound Love, Always, DeAnne

On the evening of April 30th and into the early hour of May 1st 2016, a lovely group of people gathered in my home on what is the holy day of Beltane in the Celtic tradition. The timing felt significant. The intention was to invite in the energy and awareness of the sacred union ~ the harmonious balance and union of feminine and masculine energies ~ within ourselves, in relationship and in our world.
It was an unforgettable evening of story weaving, guided meditation and simple ceremony, to invoke and honor the sacred union within ourselves and upon the planet.
This was the first collaborative event for Zen Rose Garden partners and beloveds Heather Rodriguez and David Caren and Conscious Connections NOW founder DeAnne Wolfgram. It was a significant experience for us all and for those sharing in the gathering. Personal healing shifts and notable life experiences occurred both before, during and after the gathering that were incredibly validating. The communion, vulnerable personal sharing, authenticity, heart intimacy, mutual witnessing, genuine awarenesses and ceremony shared in that small group that evening were life affirming. The ease, acceptance and presence were palpable. We undoubtedly invited the sacred union and this harmonious balance into our lives. We also invoked this on behalf of our world.
Here is the blended description of the evening’s focus co-written by Heather, David and DeAnne.
Now we know…. We are the ones that we once waited for….
Within our hearts and beneath the stars, we are invoking the Sacred Union of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in a beautiful balanced harmony…
For eons, the two have been out of sync in our world, from once dominant ancient goddess cultures through centuries of masculine driven religion and patriarchy, Now we arrive in our current Awakening Era where the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine are finding The Way to each other ~ creating a more powerful connection than anything we have yet experienced.
Our evening together acknowledges and ignites this catalyzing harmonizing synergy, individually and collectively. Come join us for this Sacred Union, energizing it within your life and throughout our world.
David and Heather will explore our shared collective reunion journey while offering personal stories of their own path to finding this balance within themselves, creating it with each other and bringing that vision to others.
These beloved partners of Zen Rose Garden will be sharing a beautiful love story of reuniting and reigniting this sacred union after so many years of sorrow, fear, and lost love. Sprinkled within their own story is a joyous tale of lost lovers reuniting after eons of travels to the furthest depths of the darkest times on a quest that finally emerges into the flames of passion and truth. The yearning of True Love sated and harmony restored. A special experiential passage will be offered to all present.
The evening promises a journey into BELOVEDNESS…..BEING part of this ancient and present day Alchemy.
May we each help anchor this balance in our world. Blessings….
DeAnne will offer her own potent personal story as a messenger of the Sacred Union, walking in the footsteps of ancient love and awakening to the Beloved within herself and her longtime marriage. For the first time in a communion with others, she will offer both shared sacred union ceremony and energetic activation of the Beloved within.
The significance of this gathering within the energies of Beltane cannot be understated. We are recalibrating ourselves individually and invoking this much needed Union both personally and collectively. The evening will bring nourishment for ourselves and for our world. Thank you for BEING part of this ancient and present day Alchemy.
May we each help anchor this balance in our world. Blessings…..
I do… I truly do fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul.
My heart opens that much wider to feel even more love with every experience I have of someone dropping their guard, shedding a layer of armor, opening their heart, sharing a bit of their truth, owning their worth or claiming their Soulful expression…
Every time someone does this our world becomes a more real, genuine and beautiful place.
Sacred soul writer Anna wrote this of and for me…… “She moves in her own way” and she moves me with eveything she writes. What a gift to see into another’s soul and write it alive to share with the world… Love you and bless you for speaking my soul language. xoxo
This moment and this precious sacred image called to be shared in honor of this Easter weekend 2014.
This remains one of my favorite images from my glorious divine feminine journey through France in 2012. I will never forget my solo sojourn through St. Sulpice in Paris, France days after walking in Magdalene’s footsteps.
I could sit and gaze upon this beautiful Pieta for hours… So much stirs of Beloved Love, Divine Union and a Sacred Lineage…. It is mesmerizing to behold.
This IS the dawning of our Love. We sisters, our brothers, our Lovers, our circles, the Sacred Feminine, the Divine Masculine, the Sacred Union and the BELOVED connections are Awakening.
This song is singing out for ALL OF US………
And of course, it happens to be 11:11 as I first shared this. Gotta love it!!
