A Winter Solstice Prayer

Dear Mother/Father God, Angels in Earth & Heaven, Spirit guides and Helpers,

Thank you for this day - for the opportunity we have for change.  I pray today for the wisdom and guidance, the awareness to see where and what I need to let go of.  to find those thoughts, actions and beliefs that no longer serve me or the highest good and to send them to the fires for transmutation.

I pray that I can release old hurts (real or imagined) and make space for your true love to enter my being and fill me with Peace.  I pray for human kind as a whole to be able to do the same.

I also ask for the silence and clarity to find my true heart center, that I dwell there at all times.  So that I can be your conduit to spread the light of your love and we as Human can ascend to your highest ideals.

Amen, Aho & Namaste

Just because it's raining...

The power is out and we're sitting here in the dark.
So, here's my latest project...before/after.  Repurposed kitchen

A case of the "don't want to's"

Yesterday I had planned to go back and work in the garden again this morning - the
crabgrass has nearly taken over the corn.  I worked 2 hours yesterday before it got hot
and barely made a dent.  J told me this morning it was going to be hot today and not overdo it.
Which works out fine because I woke up with a case of the don't want to's.

I had such plans when I quit my job and we moved to the country...I was going to work
on the house, work in the garden/flower beds, paint-create to my hearts content....
And I still aspire to those things, but there are days when that just ain't happenin'...my
body/mind won't move.

Maybe this is the message I've been looking for...take time to slow down and stop the
external chatter.  it's time to look inside  and see what's going on deep in my own soul.
I often fret over the loss of connection with my own spirit, so I will take this time to explore
and meditate to see what comes up.

and later, I may even clean the bathroom...

Morning of Gratitude

My alarm clock is the birds singing their praises for the new day.
Just a reminder that we are loved and taken care of, that all is well.
That it's time to sing in the now and not worry about the woulda/
coulda/shouldas of the past and future.

I woke this morning to cool weather and a deep fog.  As the sun
rose and the fogs lifted, I found dew covered spider webs all along
fence row.

Thank you Mama Earth for sharing yourself with us.  Peace and
love fill my soul.

Aho

The Ugly Little Farmhouse

This is my little farmhouse in the country.  (it used to be white until the last tenants painted it this ugly supposed to be adobe color).


We have spent the last 4 years renovating and probably have at least 2 more to go...new plumbing, new electrical, new doors and windows. We have spent almost every weekend working on it.  I am happy to says hat this is now our home...we sold our house in the city and have moved!

I have left my job and truly jumped over the edge...I can feel my wings sprouting! I don't yet know where I am headed, but plan to take some time to explore and discover my new path/s.

More to come.....

Sunday Prayer

Dear Mother/Father God,


Today, I want to give thanks for the little ones.  Those sweet babies who
are our future.   Bless them and keep them safe that we may learn to love
and trust as they do.   Give us the strength and wisdom to guide them
gently so they grow into what we as the human race can become.
 
In love and gratitude ~

She's gonna listen to her heart...

My head is telling me the same as yours...
"We shouldn't do this right now"  "It's not the right time"
"Perhaps we should wait"

My heart tells me "Just fuck it"
This was always just a way stop
on the way to something much
bigger and better.

Sunday Prayer

Dear Ancestors

Thank you for your lives, thank you for your successes and failures.
We have learned so much from you.  There is so much we can now do
and be.  thank you.

I come to you today to ask that you continue to walk with us.  Guide us
in our endeavors.  Teach us with love.  We have so many dreams, to grow,
to become more, to remember who we really are.   Bless us.

Please be with those who are struggling for whatever reason.  Hope and
Faith are a hard thing to lose.  Remind us to be there to help lift them up
in whatever way we can.

In love and gratitude.

Sunday Prayer

Dear Mother/Father God,

Thank you for this day, for the opportunities to grow and expand our
lives....to learn and heal and love.  Thank you.

We are looking forward, trying to let go of that which is holding us back,
keeping us small.  We are dreaming big, working hard and wanting to take
that next step.

But there are times when doubt creeps in, when we are afraid and don't
know how to continue.

Mother/Father, Angels in Heaven, please wrap us in your Love, give us
the peace our hearts are yearning for.  Give us Faith.

In loving gratitude-

Words......



Humankind has not woven the web of life.  We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do the the web, we do to ourselves.  All things are bound together.
All things connect.

Sunday Prayer

Pixie has been offering up a prayer every Sunday.  I have decided to join her.


Mother Earth,


Thank you.  Thank you for your body that we call home.   Thank you for
providing sustenance for our bodies and beauty for our souls.


Forgive us.  Forgive us our ignorance and arrogance - we've lost our way
and forgotten who we truly are.


Help us.  Help us to remember who we are and the reasons for our journey
here.  Help us to live in harmony with you, with each other and with the
other creatures in your world.


                                               In loving reverence I pray.....

Happy Birthdday to me! or Here we go again....

Not only is it the first day of the new year....it's also my birthday,
which (in my mind) makes this day extremely powerful.  I do
have big plans for the year ahead and am hoping to commit more
of myself to this online journey.

I am not a writer and struggle to post here on a regular basis.  I have
considered packing it up and going home, but something tells me I
should be doing this. 

2013 was not a bad year - but I didn't spend it creatively and have
realized that I need that outlet in more ways than I knew.   I see
that my bad art** and sometimes boring posts are necessary for
my growth not only as an artist, but also as a person. 

So, along with the usual "resolutions" we all claim at this time of year,
my word for this year is Forward as that is the direction I am headed
in!

**I have a theory that you have to create a lot of bad art and get it out
of the way before you can create good art.
