This has been the craziest summer of my life. Too much has happened to fully unpack on here, but I will say that with every challenge thrown at me, I've walked away with more clarity, growth, and perspective than I could ever hope to experience in a decade, let alone in the past 6 weeks. Given the amount of transformation I've been going through, I was eager to get my aura photographed by @radianthuman_ , so @thisradlove booked us each a session for today. I was blown away by the colors that came through in my photograph, and I was surprised by amount the green, which the artist thoughtfully explained shows growth, perfectionism, ambition, adaptability, long term awareness and determination, among other things that felt freakishly accurate. Beyond that, it gave me chills to see the colors directly correlated with the colors of the northern lights, as I've had three very intense encounters seeing the aurora borealis this year. The first two encounters happened on my birthday, in which I flew to Sweden with the hope that I could view the northern lights for first time, and was lucky enough to see my birthday wish come true. It was also on said birthday trip that I bought the t-shirt I'm wearing here, which quickly became a beloved piece of clothing. I was so sad when, a few weeks ago, this shirt was stolen from me as a result of my car getting broken into during my annual @seeamericafirst road trip. Thanks to some resourceful thinking, I lucked out again and found my shirt dumped in an alley down the road from where the robbery happened. The third time I saw the northern lights was on the same road trip, just outside @glaciernps , during a rare solar storm mid-summer that serendipitously aligned with my route. I took the subsequent photos in this post, which I believe look exactly like the colors in my aura, and brings it all full circle to me in a big way. All this to say, I believe in magic probably more than ever, and I am so grateful to @radianthuman_ for documenting this moment in time for me.
