Celebrating My Writing

I’m so happy, look at what came in the mail, my ‘Writual Blessings’ illustrated cards by Cynthia Morris. Love Love Love them.

After I cleared any negative energy from the cards I asked the question, what can you give me, and the card that flew out of the deck as I was shuffling is “celebrate your writing” oh wow, the most perfect card.

I don’t think I’ve ever celebrated my writing. I have thanked my writing. I say affirmations for writing, but never honored it by actually celebrating all that writing has blessed me with.

Writing has helped me to open up within, to declare who I am, to get over fears that were blocking me and uncover fears I didn’t know I had. Through writing I have gained strength and courage.

I have found my true voice and stepped into and opened to a universe that was waiting within me, a treasure chest full of creative gifts.

Writing has helped me to sort out ideas. Spill my guts out on the page. Get clear about things. And while writing I’ve received answers to questions, guidance, and inspiration.

Writing has been and is my divine gift.  Through writing I’ve been able to light the way for others, open doors and inspire, uplift, encourage others, and make a small difference in other peoples lives.

So this is my first celebration honoring my writing, my creativity, my inspiration, and my Source.

My own writing blessing –

I am grateful for my highest inner voice

I am grateful for my highest creativity

I am grateful for my highest inspiration

I am grateful for my highest writing

That is for my highest good and that of all, and so it is.

Amen!

Writing is my joy, my sanctuary, my love.  Writing every day has made me a better writer.  And so I continue to CELEBRATE and say YES to my writing.

Come and share your own celebration you have about your writing, in the comment section below.  Love to hear from you.

Here’s What I Know…

You can’t always be on top of things and you can’t always direct your days.   You can’t always be perfect and creative and whatever else you think you need to be every day.

I also know that there are times you can’t force things to happen. You can’t make yourself meditate, or read a book, or be forgiving, or understanding.  Or, not put your foot in your mouth (sometimes). You can’t set a goal and decide how it has to turn out, because the universe may have other plans for you. Greater ones than you could have ever imagined.

I had other plans for today but I just couldn’t get into it… and so I’m resting in the energy that is showing up.  Simple.  Peaceful. Unhurried. I took photos in the store.  🙂  And by the way I didn’t edit any of the colors in these photos.  I love my camera.

So what I know is that life is not always perfect; things do not always go as planned. Sometimes plans get sidetracked and sometimes life is messy and that’s ok too.  But every day holds out endless possibilities and unlimited potential.  Every day has its own color and shape and energies and we can play in the sandbox or not.

And this I know for sure – I love my life with all its messiness and magic and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world.

Why You Need to Go With the Flow

Sometimes I just forget that I’m not superwoman and that I can’t do everything and that I need to listen to my body and give myself a rest and a break. I get into this place where I’m walking around with this idea that I have to be creative every single minute of every single day, and if I’m not, I’m wasting my precious life. And I get stressed (ohhhh noooo) when new ideas aren’t flooding my mind all the time and I’m not creating all the time.

Sometimes life happens like this past week where every day I had something that came up. Monday morning the water hose to my fridge broke and luckily I was home when the water started gushing out all over. (There was lots of towels to wash)  The next day I had to go to the ear doctor and the next to the dentist (also not planned) and in between I also went to work. I also had scheduled for my windows to be cleaned on another day and so I had workers here and cleaning up to do, and before I knew it the week was gone and I felt like I didn’t do anything, anything creative that is. I am at my most creative in the morning, I love doing my ritual, having breakfast, writing in my journal… that’s how I start my mornings, but when stuff happens nothing creative gets done.

And so I have to remind myself every so often that, I don’t have to be creative every minute of every day.  Sometimes I don’t get anything done even when there is no stuff happening to interrupt my day, and that’s ok too.  And that creativity can show up at the most unexpected moment, when I least expect it, like the idea to write this blog post. And sometimes I need to follow the rhythm of my own self, and not hold myself up to some out of reach schedule and ideals that are impossible to meet, I’m not superwoman. And sometimes life just happens and I need to go with the flow of it all.

But in between all that I did manage to take some photos this past week while out shopping.  (Big smile)

And so life continues to show up sometimes expected and at others totally unexpected and I’m reminding myself to just go with the flow…

How are you showing up to your life, come and share in the comment section below, love to hear from you.

Unlock Your-Self & Step Into Your Amazing

Life is not so simple at times. It can be complex, laced with layers and layers to unravel and thick heavy steel walls to break down. I didn’t know until I was fifty – that there can be another way, that I can think a different way about me, about life and about God.  I didn’t know until that moment of revelation that life can be different and that I can have dreams and desires and wants and needs and they can become true.

I didn’t know that I had been hiding myself away, that I am more than what I knew of myself to be. That I’m free to step out of the – have to and should to, that were choking me. That I was living under the rules and regulations that belonged to someone else but were shaping every moment of my life, and if I wanted my life to be different I needed to let go of thoughts and beliefs that didn’t really belong to me. They were handed down to me like some legacy since birth and I just took them and adapted them and made them my own and had been living by their law ever since.

It was in that moment of revelation that I started my journey of unraveling, digging myself out and freeing myself bit by bit. Breaking down the walls I put around me is not always easy, at times I held on for dear life, even when I knew that I’ve outgrown the level of consciousness I was in and needed to move on.  Sometimes i didn’t know how, and sometimes I didn’t even recognize that I had a wall, it was such a deep part of me.

My journey is ongoing, I’m still unraveling and digging myself out to get to the core of who I really am, so I can stand fully in my power and shine my light out into the world.

So I’m here to tell you that YES YOU CAN DO IT.  That THIS IS YOUR YEAR, and this is your invitation.  LET YOUR-SELF OUT.  Walk with trust, faith, forgiveness, compassion, courage, meet fear head on, and bit by bit find who you are, because every time you do you’re reclaiming a part of yourself and you’ll find you’re – AMAZING.
