A sacred spiral gathering of charred leaves and charcoal.

It took a moment for me to realise what it was.

Most any other day the curvy patterns along the shoreline are speckled with shells and seaweed or smooth stones, pumice and seagrass.

Over the weekend while on a walk along my local beach, the recognisable curves were there but made from charcoal and burnt leaves washed up from the not-so-far away fires.

Right now not only is there a mighty long drought happening here in Australia, there’s so many bushfires along the East Coast that some of those have joined up to create megafires (burning hundred of thousands of acres) that will take several weeks to put out – and some only when rain comes. 

I didn’t feel to just keep on with my beach walk, like ‘there’s nothing to see here!’. So I started to pick up any whole leaves on my path. There were more leaves than I could carry. 

When I reached the north end of the beach, I sat down on the sand with what I had picked up, and made a sacred spiral gathering…

From the burnt leaves with balancing stones and a seashell at its centre.

A visual prayer for steady rain for the people, creatures and land. An offering up to the rain gods and divine water-bearers.

The leaves a reminder to self of what we all know, that trees provide us with oxygen amongst other vital things. Like rain. Trees are essential for Mama Nature to make rain. The drinking water all living organisms and the land need for life-sustaining hydration.

May we take care of what takes care of us.

Mama Earth.

We are made of her.

Deepen the connection with being YOU + I made something for you.

Being me feels good to my being.

These are the words that surfaced when I drew the blue lady in my sketch book.

Which turned into my mantra for the week.

Turns out these words weren’t done yet.

They kept returning to my focus. And the more they did, the more I noticed how they were serving to deepen the connection with “being me”.

To acknowledge and appreciate when I felt that way as I went about my day.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

And to notice too, when I could sense I was facing the other direction. While remembering to be kind to self.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

What also surfaced for me was the infinite number of ways we can deepen this connection with “being self”.

One way is to be aware of what lights up for you and what lights you up.

You can do this by literally acknowledging aloud or quietly within, “I like that!”.

So that’s the thread I followed this week which birthed out as my latest offering to you.

A free printable poster to deepen the connection with being YOU.

It also comes with an inspired creative nudge using the printable.

Here’s how mine turned out…

Want the printable poster?

A kundalini-awake womb-an.

A kundalini-awake womb-an.

An intuited soul sketch in my art journal during a soul expression session in my studio.

While I was painting this, Lola my fluffy assistant kept tapping her paws on the wet watercolour.

An apt move given this being reminds me of Kali, the blue Hindu goddess often depicted dancing with her tongue poking out wearing a necklace of heads and a skirt of arms.

She is considered the most powerful embodiment of pure Shakti, the divine feminine energy of the Universe.

A fierce mama goddess, divine protector, slayer of demons and destroyer of evil-forces. She also symbolises creativity, fertility and emancipation (being free from trouble-makers + what is troubling to the self).

There’s no messing with her vibe.

This sketch arrived with the words:

Source always knows where I am. 
Source guides me where Source finds me.
Source guides me from where I am.
Being me feels good to my being.

Source being one word for God/ Universe/ Mama Creator. Do you have a name or word(s) that feels best to you to describe the life-force of all things in this ever-expanding cosmos?

A soul expression session in my studio.

Hello morning soul expression session in my studio. 

There’s this notion that creativity, movement forward, healing, revelations, aha-moments and pearls of wisdom come from not only our depths but that they must be excavated, unearthed, unveiled or realised through suffering, struggle, pain, anger or frustration.

Oh yes, in those depths there’s gold.

As there is in rebellion and raging against the machine angst.

And there’s also wild precious gold that shows itself and speaks to us in the depths of our calm and peace, in our silence and solitude, in being with our own self and being our real self when with loved ones, in our love and light.

And even in our pure wanting of and leaning into that. 

What if just for right now you let yourself be whole enough, enlightened enough, healed enough to drop into deeper peace with who you are in this moment?

Thank you for being here and reading these words.

Preparing the ground to seek and find new ways + a moon mantra.

Lutadora helped me gather flowers for my recent Way of the We.Moon, Medicine Circle honouring the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Lutadora does whatever makes her genuinely feel good.

Which is exactly what this New Moon encouraged us to reach for.

It surfaced questions like;

How do I really want to feel?

What do I truly want to hold in my focus?

Preparing the ground for you to seek and find new ways to experience more of your authentic self. 

Like for Lutadora.

She’s one of my rescued hens. Every one of her sisters are happy as clams to walk around the garden.

This chickie?

She’d prefer to walk up the stairs, stroll around the veranda and see if she can come into the house.

With flowers gathered, paper and pastels ready this was the sacred centre for our Circle.

And with each New and Full Moon births out a Moon Mantra.

Use this one to soothe your way forward from where you are right now.
