To tap the uniquely creative in ourselves

In order to tap the uniquely creative in ourselves, it is important to honor the four ways of deep listening: intuition, perception, insight, and vision. Many indigenous cultures recognize that intuition is the source that sparks external seeing (perception), internal viewing (insight), and holistic seeing (vision). Paying attention to these modes of seeing is a way to honor the sacred and fire the creative fire. The Creative Spirit—the relentless power within us that constantly invites us to be who we are—requires the capacity to be open to our authenticity, vision, and creativity.

There comes a time in the spiritual journey

There comes a time in the spiritual journey when you start making choices from a very different place . . .  And if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health, happiness, wisdom, and love, it’s the right choice.

The deep wisdom way

In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery.  It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.

Love is that flame that once kindled burns everything

Love is that flame that once kindled burns everything,
and only the mystery of the journey remains.

How to stay connected to my soul

To help my stay connected to my soul, I begin each day by spending an hour in nature. Every day I give gratitude; every day I meditate. One day a month I devote to silence and reflection. Usually I fast on this day; it's a whole day of being, and of listening to my inner guidance. There is no doing. I literally either walk in silence or sit in silence listening. These practices help open my creative fires to the mysteries of the soul.
