Every mistake or embarrassing risk is taking you exactly where you want to go.
The universe is waiting with love for you to walk the path.

History used labels like Gods, Myths, Superheroines. We are Divine. We are Creation Divas. We have every dust molecule of the universe, not only at hand, but in our blood line. We are Star Stuff!

Pushing yourself a tiny bit beyond what it is you think you can do creatively is the only way to surprise yourself, the only way to make art that is rich with energy and passion. If you fall in the process, know that the fall is a only a stumble on the way to the high of finding you are greater than you thought.

We each have our own unique roads and paths for creating. What may be right for one person may be completely different for another. Trust in your own natural ways, that animal knowing deep within you. Trust!

Don't be afraid. You have everything you need to make your dreams come true.

YOU are ENOUGH!! You don't have to 'do more' or 'be more' - whoever you are, right now, is perfect, devine, blessed!!

I believe in you! I empathize with the doubt, the uncertainty, the self-criticizing, I really do. But today, I want you to know that you are brave. You ARE worth it. You are a gift. You are special. Do not let this project, another person, or yourself define your worth. Own it. Believe it. Nurture it. You are not alone. We are all here to cushion your fall because we believe in you. You ARE a beautiful soul.

Take a piece of paper and write a letter to your creative side. Celebrate it, encourge it, plan festive trips for it, and treats.

Put it in an envelope and mail it to yourself.

As a child my muse was not supported. She was told she was lazy, a day dreamer and needed to always be busy working. She was not accepted for being different in her family. My muse has loved many others but has not been loved in the ways she needed to be loved. My muse has not always loved herself. I must ask her forgiveness and begin the journey to wholeness that has been so long in coming. The following verse came to me as I was writing this.

Wake up from your sleep,
Climb out of your coffins;
Christ will show you the light!
Ephesians 5:14 The Message

You cannot forever stop your true self from emerging, it is its destiny.

There's an awful lot of us, and hard to get to everyone. If you're not getting very many comments, it's the magnitude of the group - over 100 - not you or your content.
The later a person posts, the less likely they are to get comments. Let's all be the goddesses we are and make sure we extend ourselves a little bit so that everyone is heard and encouraged.

Do what feels right and natural. Don't stop too long to think about it. And every now and then do something that scares you. Because those scary things will most likely lead you down the path that you should be going.

There is no right or wrong way...there's just the way that fits you at the moment. Roll with it! Explore. Have fun!

The validation you seek will come when you have explored every avenue that takes you no where, and you have dug out, with bleeding fingers, the treasure of your self.

We cannot live in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a hope. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening. To use our own voice. To see our own light. ~~Hildegard Von Bingen

Take the first step. 
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
just take the next step.

Do what you are afraid to do. ~~ Emerson

Give me the strength to believe that the universe will take care of me amongst the bills, the stress and the work of my full time day job so that I can pursue what I really want to do!
