You connect with ZULA because sometimes you may feel ungrounded. There is a deeper aspect in yourself you aren’t quite ready or don’t quite know how to tap into. You have a love of nature and you love having things like flowers, images of trees, rocks or crystals in your home. You feel better when you go for a walk outdoors or observe the night sky. You have an inkling that there is old wisdom in plants, trees, rocks and waters. You wonder at the beauty of the sky, the stars, the sun and moon. You wish you could feel more like yourself with out trying to be anyone else. That you had the strength and courage to look inside and see who you really are. You love the idea of feeling empowered just because that is your natural state. That you actually give yourself credit for the creative parts in your life whether it be painting, gardening, cooking dinner for your family, dancing, teaching your dog a new trick, or fixing your bike.
