Welcoming Change

It's been an interesting end to the summer. I've found work, as I shared previously, and it's meaningful to boot. The type of freelance writing jobs coming my way enhance rather than distract from the direction of my path. Even while working, I find myself deepening my spirituality and credit a lot of this to the Law of Attraction.

Before I even knew what the Law of Attraction was, I began to notice people popping in and out of my life in a way that suggested all of it served a purpose. In my line of work, which involved working with lots of different students, I connected in meaningful ways that were mutually beneficial because of this coming together. Lacking the words to describe this phenomena, I could only say we crossed each others paths for a reason. Years later, I read a book that changed life as I knew it called "The Secret."

Now that I understand the Law of Attraction and embrace its precepts more good is flowing in and negativity is swiftly departing. This in turn sparks an inner joy and feeling of satisfaction, as well as hope. Mere words can't describe the happiness this cleansing and purging flow creates.



Over the past few weeks I reread, probably for the 4th time, the seminal and inspirational book, "The Four Agreements" by don Miguel Ruiz. Swept up in its empowering Toltec wisdom, I began making more decisions this past weekend about how to restructure my life. Now, I'm deciding whether to do a structured year of deep reflection through meditation teacher training or to become a certified hatha yoga instructor. Next, I need to decide whether to do the training self-paced, as an at home study course or in person...decisions, decisions.



Meditation (see post Quieting Down the Monkey Mind) and yoga (see Tibetan Singing Bowls post) have been in my life since high school. Only recently have I heard the two call to me for deeper engagement and further commitment. All and all, the last quarter of the year into the next should prove to be interesting, full and enlightening.

    1. I'm so glad this post spoke to you Susan. We all need those gentle reminders from time to time. That's what rereading "The Four Agreements" was for me.

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

Poof!
We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.











Gran Bwa

Gran Bwais a lwa that helps you connect to ancestral roots or the spiritual home of Vodou. A friend of mine, who is an expert on Haitian Vodou, who has spent a lot of time in Haiti with the artists there, told me I had painted Gran Bwa when I made this spontaneous work out of walnut ink and sumi-ink on handmade paper. I had considered this painting a self-portrait. She now holds this piece in her private collection:

Quite a few people are afraid of Vodou but it is an awe-inspiring tradition of bringing together plant energy with divinity, spiritual and personal energy. My friend who is very involved with Vodou, especially the art that surrounds it, is from European ancestry. She is light in spirit and bubbly, with a close relationship to nature and her garden.  Vodou affirms the relationships between cycles of life, trees of knowledge and spirit.  The Vodou vision of lwa, understands them as the intelligence of energy present in humans, nature and thoughts.  Mysteries can be understo…
