Three keys to creative living #WriteBravely

For today’s Write Tribe Festival of Words #6, I invited a very special young lady to share her thoughts about what it takes to live a creative life. Enjoy!

three keys to creative living

I was really excited when Shinjini asked me to write about living creativity. It’s something that’s really close to my heart. And though it is a wide and broad topic, there are three key things that I want to focus on today.Continue reading

My greatest treasure: A mirror to my heart #WriteBravely

What if I told you that my greatest treasure is a mirror? But it is no ordinary mirror – it’s a mirror to my heart, to my soul. It gives me a portal into my own innate wisdom, a way to navigate through the inevitable obstacles that arise during my days. It reflects back both light and shadows, helping me to gently work at uncovering my hurts, tending to them, and becoming whole again.

It works, like most magical mirrors do, with intention, with questions; the clearer the intent, the more focused the question, the stronger the mirror’s reflective powers.Continue reading

Instead of looking at our blessings, challenges and how we can make the most of the month ahead, this month, we’ll look at the theme of the month, the challenges it brings, and what lessons those challenges can teach us.

Contributing artist for a collaborative Tarot deck!

A few months ago if you told me that I could call myself a Tarot artist, I would have laughed until my stomach hurt. I sure as hell don’t have the time to create 78 original works of art, let alone the knowledge or expertise to figure out how to package and publishing a Tarot deck.

And yet, today I can say that I am, indeed a Tarot artist. Only, I’m not creating 78 cards {at least not yet!}.

Passion projects, personal transformation and overcoming resistance

Tarot guidance for personal transformationI start each morning with a moment of mindfulness, spending some time with a simple question and a single card drawn from my Tarot deck.

Each morning the cards reflect back a nugget of wisdom – it could be a simple reminder telling me to stay focused on the task at hand; a not-so-subtle push to stop day dreaming and start doing already; or an indication of a broader energy that I may need to work with during the day.

For today’s daily Tarot pull, I sat with this simple question:

What do I need to know about personal transformation?

When I drew the card and wrote down the message in my Tarot journal, I immediately knew that this was something that needed to be shared. Continue reading

Monthly Tarot forecast for May 2017

April seemed to rush by in a bit of a haze. When I wasn’t thinking about work, I was focusing on the A to Z Challenge – creating videos (so fun and also so annoying), writing the few posts that I hadn’t managed to pre-schedule, blog hopping and finding interesting new blogs to follow – just writing it all out has me exhausted! But now that April is over, it’s time to say hello to May! Which means it’s time for…

Magic making: Creating my first oracle card deck

Last year, I had a dream: to create my very own oracle card deck.

I did some research and tried brainstorming a few ideas, but I was getting nowhere. There were too many ideas knocking around in my head…too many elements I was trying to put into one deck. I couldn’t narrow down on a theme or a structure and I would change my mind almost every day! So, I put it on the back burner and forgot all about it.
