|"Awakened Woman"work in progress|
Every year I chose a word or words that will be my focus for the year. This year is it LISTEN. My focus will be to LISTEN to my intuition, and to my body. I want to notice and and better flow with my natural rhythms and how I connect with the rhythms of Mother Earth. I have already noticed a change in what I eat and an overwhelming need to be in the moonlight (not easy in Oregon). I have slowed down to soak up more of the beauty around me. I have conversations with birds and squirrels, LISTEN to the sound of the water flowing in the creek. When I need rest, I rest. When I need solitude, I wander. When I need peace, I paint....yesterday it was painting all day..in my pajamas...glorious!
Like many women, I am being called to be in circle with other women who want to tune into these rhythms and illuminate the Divine Feminine within themselves and for the planet. I am devoting all of my art this year to this process and plan to go deep and LISTEN to what she has to teach me. This feels like a gentle time, a softer time, a feminine time. I don't want to climb any mountains, or slay any dragons. I am practicing the art of being, holding space for myself and my tribe sisters to heal and come into themselves for nourishment. I love being in the midst of my own awakening and the awakening of the beautiful divine women around me. It is a powerful thing to witness someone discovering their sacredness.
So 2013, I say goodbye to you with gratitude for the lessons learned. 2014 I am ready. My intentions are set, my vision board is complete, I am an empty vessel ready to receive love, guidance, healing, grace and possibilities-let's start manifesting.
