Summer Muse - ings

Mother Nature perfectly times Summer after Spring.  It's a time to slow down a little, take a breather after the burst of growth and life in Spring. 
Yet the movement is constant, always moving forward, onward.


There is a great message in this for us humans.  A reminder to keep moving through life, physically, mentally, spiritually.  On a path, off the path, or back to the path, as long as we keep moving.  The human spirit craves growth, enlightenment.

This summer I have had the great honor and blessing to be called upon by inspiration.  I'm back to producing art and jewelry for a local boutique.  I am also studying a new healing modality.  I've expanded my possibilities for even more life to flow to me.

I believe these gifts have come to me because I did the work.  I meditated, got still, opened my mind and stayed grateful - even when I was at my lowest.


So if a muse is a source of inspiration, and musing is to ponder, then I have created the perfect vacuum for growth.

I was recently visited by a dear friend I consider to be a muse.  Every time we visit she reminds me what a free spirit I am - or could be.  That possibilities are endless.

If you are on a transformational path I highly recommend the movie Eat, Pray, Love.  She reminds us to believe in love again.  That God dwells within you, as you.  That balance is not too much God, not too much selfish.  And, that balance is not letting anyone love you less than you love yourself.
