Here’s the Thing … Collage Wisdom Insight #1

Oldways

I find myself, among a number of friends … experiencing life change nudges.  Intuitively, we know something is coming.  I think it’s Spirit/God’s way of giving us a heads-up.  We sense a ‘Pay Attention‘ tap on the shoulder, bump/thump on the head, or in my case, L-5 putting me in a frozen, ‘now I’ve got your attention’, pose … because I chose not to listen to the quiet whispers, taps and thumps, mostly because of fear.  Fear of changing out a career (Certified Massage Therapist & Energy Worker for 28 years).  Loss of assured income.  Losing relationships.  Being my own boss.  I’m very good at taking care of everything.  Doing it all – whew.

It was interesting, when the pain was manageable, to note it was on my left side – energetically, the feminine side, the receiving side … being vulnerable, asking for help, nurturing me, being soft and gentle.  Quiet reflection, led me to acknowledge, my taking care of everything and doing it all (male energy/right side) was overpowering, leading to my life not being in balance.  My soft, gentle side, needed me to stop doing massage work.  (Deep breath … breathe ….) Now … it was taking time to process this part of my life.  This time of change.  I decided to create a collage to help me approach things that were coming through with meditation and journaling.

I call it Collage Wisdom!

Old ways won’t open new doors.  It’s true.  Life is filled with opportunities.  It’s opening new ways of thinking … yes, new thoughts are necessary! Any age, any decade!  Time to allow dreams to filter in … What if ____ ?? How about ___ ?? It is time to admit: We know stuff. (Thank you, Janice!).  We are a mixed bag of talents.  We are not one dimensional. We are multi-dimensional and that can be what ever we choose it to be.  Yes, fear is involved.  So is bravery.  We become stronger because we are going through the fear and realize how flipping awesome we are.  Believe this with me!  Create a grand door, a cabin door, a gnome door, a magical door, a real-life door …  put your hand on the doorknob, I will too.  Let’s twist it open – ready, set, GO …

Today is a new day.

More to come!

Blessings and Love,

Namaste

The Art of BEing …

I love early morning coffee time with God.  Quiet time.  Nurturing.  I never cease to be amazed at what comes though when I journal.  After being on a hiatus with this practice during the time of a whirlwind romance, Spirit was ready and waiting when I returned. (Note to self: Never let anyone or anything get in the way of these gentle moments. God wove around and about and through me during that time – I feel clarity and strength would have been recognized sooner with meditation and taking time to journal.)

And so … one early morning, as words poured out on paper, it was clear Spirit was prompting me to “put myself out there”.  What unfolded was a series of gatherings – for people to come together on a path of discovery for body, mind and Spirit.  It was to be called: The ART of BEing.  That was a WOW moment.  I’m one that needs confirmation … still, after all these years.  Like, I’m not imagining this … or am I?  If I were to do this, we’d need a space, so, God, you’re going to have to come up with something.  You provide the space, I’ll be brave and do this.

I took a breath, and started my day.  One of my “to do” things, was renewing my membership with The Crossing Arts.  An amazing art community, fostering individuals to create their own works of art! Be sure to check them out.  While I was there, I was offered the Art Gallery as space to hold gatherings for The ART of BEing.  How incredible is that?!  The beautiful, creative art – first imagined by the artist and then coming to reality, surrounding us as we gather … this is affirmation, don’t you think? Now, I’m being brave and holding up my end of the deal!  You can get more info at The ART of BEing!  A couple of wonder-filled things we will be doing: meditating, taking time to journal and share … I think Spirit is smiling.

What I know to be true … BEing true to myself, BEing still in the silence, BEing able to listen, BEing willing to be brave … are parts of God and the goodness that is waiting.  All of us are a piece of ART … BEing who we are … is our gift to the world.
