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,

Cosmic Perspective

So many things had to go right for us to be here.

Imagine, an accumulation of God’s thoughts transformed into the perfect atmosphere for us, all the while, the rest of the Cosmos is tended to and loved as much as we are.

My friend, you are one of many, but the volume of numbers does not in any way dilute your value to the whole.

Thank you for your willingness to participate.

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.

Defining the Good Life

I’ve been thinking a lot about my life, about life in general too. About how to live a good life and what that means to me, and what the definition of a good life is.

Maybe you have these thoughts too?

I suppose the definition of a good life is different for everyone, but I want to hone in on what that means for me. What are my standards? What are my beliefs on satisfied living?

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.

Your Presence is Vital

An old friend of mine, Scott Moore, passed away yesterday.

Scott and I haven’t been close for a long time. Years and life can do that to friendships. But he will always hold a special place in my heart.

You see, Scott was one of those people you randomly cross paths with that show you a new way of being.

He was the first free-thinker I ever met up close and in person.
