Guiding Thought

Listen to your heart and with your heart. Your heart pays attention to others, listening to their inner voice, their unspoken words. You care, and attend with love to their deeper, silent needs, asking their heart, “How may I strengthen you and raise your energy?”

Do you remember as a kid making birthday cards, drawings, paintings, or even macaroni art for a loved one, and being excited about giving it to them to show you how much you love them?

Are you a parent or grandparent who has received such a card? And cherish it? And know that through that card, the child is giving you love?

Kids have this way of transferring love into those cards. No skill, just earnestness to share the love.

Somehow there’s an energy transfer.

That was my reminder today. It’s not about the drawing, it’s about the energy transferred into it through the exercise of connecting to my heart.

Do I know what these drawings “mean”? No. But I know they are full of energy from my heart.

Which way is up? (Heart- 1.1.15)

Guiding Thought

Bring your awareness to your heart and resonate with its love. Naturally and easily your heart-love radiates through you. Love is present now—rippling in to the future, releasing the past.

In a tarot deck, the first card is the fool, symbolized often with a man in a jester-like suit with a stick and bundle slung over his shoulder as though he is starting out on a journey. He has a flower in the other hand, which symbolizes freedom, and a dog dancing around his feet, urging him forward. He seems oblivious to the fact that he is headed toward a cliff, and a straight drop down. The card can symbolize the wisdom of innocence or the foolishness of ignorance.

This was one of the images that came to me as I was doing the picture. I felt as though the image was telling me of my own journey.

Here I am doing the first journey of a two-year cycle, but more than that, it is the first Journey of the beginning of 25 cycles. In other words: a big beginning.

Am I the wise innocent, or the ignorant fool?

I feel like both…at the same time.

On the one hand, I’ve been doing the Journeys long enough that I have some wisdom and knowledge about them, and about myself, on the other hand, I’m embarking on something so much bigger than I am or what I think I know that I can only seem foolish in contrast.

Either way, the message is clear: this is a beginning, the start of something new, and my journey can take me whichever way I choose.

All of the wisdom I’ve gained up to this point pales in comparison to what I have yet to learn, but hopefully it will prevent me from falling off a cliff.

Feelin’ It (Heart- 1.1.9)

Guiding Thought

Gratitude strikes my heart like a bell, resounding love through my being. Gratitude opens my heart to Love’s purity, my very own essence! I experience such deep gratitude for my heart, my essence, my ALL of Life!

There was something rhythmic and steady about drawing repetitive lines while listening to the Guiding Thought. I felt my mind let go so that the words were able to quite literally resound through my body, carrying with them the feeling behind the words. By the time I was finishing the picture, I felt gratitude that was in my body, visceral and organic. I’ve never experienced that before.

Cool.
