Receive

I’ve been listening to Abraham Hicks and still working my way through the Artist’s Way.  Both very synchronistically converged this week.  They talked about being in receptive mode.  Our thoughts are not our thoughts.  Our creations are not our creations.  But they await us, ready to be transmitted, transmuted, transformed,   We need only to receive.  Beautiful night tonight.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Vision Board Journal Cover

I discovered something awesome to do with my vision board — make it into my journal cover!  Then I can consciously look at it every day — AND it motivates me to write in my journal more.  Once the journal is done, it’s time to refresh my vision board.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Media Blackout

Made a decision

Entertained myself

Did not engage

In any sort of media

Artist’s Way: Inspiration

 

Bonded with my pets

Left Facebook alone

Avoided too much app use

Cooked quite a bit!

Killed the tube and laptop

Organized the house

Understood more about myself

Troll-hunted TWICE!

 

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Welcome, September!

I have been looking forward to this month for some time — a big month ahead!

  1. It’s my birthday month!  I have some fun things planned for myself.  As one of my artist’s dates, I am taking myself to see Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood perform some improvisation.  I also finally signed up for an Akashic record training class. (I’ve been waiting over half a year for this!)
  2. This is a big workshop month (including the very beginning of October)!  I will be presenting on my trip to the Camino, 2 Meditation classes, and a Vision Workshop.
  3. I making my way into the second half of the Artist’s Way program.  It has already been a great ride — I’m excited for what’s still to come!

What are you looking forward to/celebrating this September?

Much love and many blessings. ❤

If It Weren’t Too Crazy. . .

hiker-846094_1920.jpg

I want to walk the Kumano Kodo pretty badly. I’m in week 5 of the Artist’s Way, and it asks questions like: “What would I try if it weren’t too crazy?” or “What would I do if it weren’t too selfish?” and “List 10 things you love and would love to do but are not allowed to do.”

I would travel. A LOT Sometimes I listen to certain songs or see certain palettes of color – and I think of past travels.  I remember the joy of being immersed in a completely new world, in a completely new feeling. I love the feeling of being alone. Of exploring. Of being transformed by my environment. If I weren’t selfish – if it weren’t too crazy – if I could do what I loved to do and am not allowed to do – I would travel, all of the time. That’s it, universe. That is it. Now, let’s see what you’ve got. 😉

 Much love and many blessings. ❤

Weekend Blackout

copy-space-2518265_1920

I’m a third of the way into the Artist’s Way,  and we were recently encouraged to have “reading deprivation” week.  I found that to be a challenge with work and such, but I realized that I DO have a 3-day weekend coming up.

SO, I decided this morning that I’m going on a media blackout this weekend.  I’m going to avoid visual and audio media of any kind as much as possible.  No reading.  No movies or TV shows.  No social media.  Limited texting.  No video projects.  Limited laptop and phone use.  I’ll let you know how it goes!

This also means that this is my last live blog post for a few days.  The next 4 days will be scheduled posts that I am also creating tonight.  But I’ve learned my lesson from last time. . .  I will save backups in Word. . .  just in case! I’ll report back Tuesday — have a great weekend!

Have you tried something like this?  Recently?  How did it go?  

Much love and many blessings. ❤

What the Heart Wants . . .

blur-1850082_1920

Usually about once a year I go “thrift shop hopping.”  I hop from store to store and basically pick out my whole wardrobe for the year. It’d been at least a year since the last time, and I was really itching to go.  I’d even been contemplating using it for an Artist’s Date.  But I still hadn’t gone.  I didn’t have enough time. The place was closed.   I wanted to be around for my husband.  Or I didn’t want to spend the money.

Today my husband had his own evening plans, and I so I thought about finally going.  The Salvation Army store is pretty close to my work, and it is most recently my favorite thrift shop.  I knew I didn’t have to make a whole big thing of it this time.  I could just go to the one place;  I knew exactly what I was looking for — tops to go with my awesome new self-made pants — and I knew I didn’t have to spend a ton to refresh my wardrobe.

I also knew that the longer I waited to go, the more my heart would whimper. . .

So, I finally went tonight!  And it was wonderful!  I was in the place for less than an hour,  spent only $58, and now have an extra two weeks of tops!

And most importantly, my heart is very happy. ❤

Have you fed your heart today?  Much love and many blessings. ❤
