Sun Energy

Typically, I like to rise with the sun.  Today I wasn’t so lucky...ugh, it’s Monday!  Still, I generally work with sun magick and my daily activities revolve around the movements of the sun.  I love doing sun salutations in the morning and then painting in the studio using natural sun light.  In this Mandala called “Sun Energy” I utilized a lot of color theory to try to make a very vibrant painting--I wanted it to vibrate.  I see each of the background Islamic pattern flowers as little suns that give off tremendous healing energy.  I think of the early Egyptians because a large part of their ancient spirituality revolved around sun worship. Today is a day for them—the sun is shining this morning in an eye-piercingly bright manner.  While it is not warming up this cold Illinois weather (it is 29 degrees right now), its majestic presence is very warming to the soul.  I am practicing ways of bringing the sun’s warmth into the home.  I bought some patchouli, something called Aspen flower and a bamboo votive candle for my dining room wall; a lovely green garland; some eucalyptus and bittersweet berries for the hearth.  I have repositioned the white poinsettia which seems to throw off a lot of its own natural light and positive energy. The forced narcissus is starting to bloom, releasing its bright, high frequency scent into the living room.  It is almost otherworldly. I like to work the hearth area and am considering hanging a cadmium red abstract painting over it to bring in a fiery feeling, according to the tenets of feng shui.  In fact, today I will completely re-do the hearth because that is the place from which warmth springs.

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.





A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…

Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss Workshop

Happy to announce that my 6th book has been published by a small publishing house in England called Green Magic Publishing! You can find it here.

It is a very unique book, that has been a long time coming - 14 years actually! When I began writing it my adult children were still living at home and my youngest, who is about to graduate from high school, was little more than a toddler. Time flies but book writing seems to take forever!

The release of, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss feels like a birth. It has had growing pains, changes and the labor of bringing it into this world - a labor of love.





I'm offering a series of workshops at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago, to kick off the book and get you into its unique type of hands-on healing and transformation work. This first one is inspired by Welsh Goddess Cerrwiden. Following is a description and how you can sign up at Life Force Arts Center.

A to Z Update

My plate is full with demanding, though fun and meaningful, projects. I thought I could participate in the A to Z Blogger's Challenge but can not. This year I'm going to support fellow bloggers from the sidelines during April, visiting your blogs when I can.  I'm in the final stages of editing my soon-to-be-released book, writing my 7th book and preparing for my fall solo exhibition of my art, and that is a very full plate.

I hope to do a good job with what I'm working on and put my passion there. I'm stepping out of the challenge before it begins in order to write, edit and paint.

See you all on your blogs during the A to Z Challenge, and hope to participate again in 2018!
