Make Stuff. Feel Better

Lately, I’ve noticed that I feel better when I make stuff. Notice I said stuff and not art because I don’t consider myself an artist even though I love living a creative life.

There is something about making stuff that reminds me of who I am—a creator. I am a creator with energetic roots grounded in the nourishing soil of my Source, the ultimate Creator. 

That’s what we are—creators. We are constantly creating all day long.

Who is Your Inspirational Hero?

Inspirational Heroes are different than normal heroes—if there can be such a thing as a “normal” hero.

Inspirational heroes ignite something within your spirit that calls to YOU specifically in some way. They help you to remember something important about yourself. 

This reminder can feel kind of vague, almost like trying to remember a dream.

Or it can feel like a road sign pointing you in a particular direction that you didn’t remember you wanted to travel.

The Gift in 2020

Now that we are in the thick of 2020, you might have begun to notice a new spiritual theme of creativity showing up for you.

The worldwide pandemic has hit the proverbial pause button on the old recording of busyness and over-scheduling. The current “pause” has created more space and time in daily life.

Take advantage of this unique experience. You now have the opportunity to reflect inwardly, connect to what you really want for your life,

We are Made to Move

Intentional movement is an important part of the spiritual path because it helps you to BE in your body. When you move on purpose, you bring your full attention to the container that you occupy. You immerse yourself in the here and now–in the present moment where you eternally live.

Plus, your body is beautiful!

It wants to be in a loving relationship with you. It wants to love you and be loved by you.

Who are You Listening To?

Most people mean well — (including me.)

They make suggestions, give advice, share stories about their own experiences, and offer encouragement or warnings for your “own good.”

But, they’re not you.

Don’t get me wrong — we are more alike than different because we originate from the same Source, but your life is layered and dynamic. You are constantly changing and morphing according to your current energy, intentions, and ability to listen to your inner wisdom.

Striving to Practice Unconditional Love, but fall short sometimes? Try this practice in the meantime.

Have you ever encountered a knowing that rocked your world? It was something that when you read it, heard it, saw it—you knew in the core of your being it was true.

For me, when I encountered the knowing that God does not forgive. It rocked my world.

God doesn’t need to forgive because Source never perceives us as wrong. Source sees us as whole, perfect, and divine. Source is never judging us or withdrawing its appreciation of us.

You Can’t Hide Your Vibe

I remember the first time I discovered a mood ring as a little girl. I thought I’d found a wearable piece of magic.

The notion that a ring changed colors according to my mood delighted me so much that I begged my mom to buy it for me. 

Needless to say I promptly lost it two weeks later while swimming in a lake. What can I say? I was a kid.

Lessons Along the Way

Look what I’ve been doing! I crocheted my first ever afghan. I taught myself via Youtube. It took 49.5 hours over six weeks.

A few things I learned along the way:

  • It’s super fun to dabble with things out of your comfort zone.
  • It’s okay not to know what you’re doing.
  • Expect mistakes.
  • Sometimes you have to begin again where you are.
  • You will curse.
