Drum roll please!!!
Watch as I attempt to keep up with the awesome and inspiring Flora Bowley’s Bloom True Boot Camp… a month long course of creative daily prompts to support, guide and inspire artists and ultimately kick our creative butts into high gear.
So here goes…
Monday Sept 1. Invite the Sacred
In our home the Sacred is called The Force... my boys dubbed it that years ago as a joke but it stuck and I’m glad. Unfortunately The Force hasn’t been with me for a number of years now, well not consciously anyway. It was one of the many precious things that gave way in the aftermath of my devastating marriage breakdown. I never stopped believing though, never doubted and there were many times when I could do nothing but hold on tight to that belief… it was all I had. It got me through.
Things are better now. Thankfully my life and I are just beginning to find our way and of course it was no coincidence when The Force recently sent me a copy of Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. I had read it before and knew it was just what I needed to reignite the spiritual spark in me.
I now invite the Sacred into my heart and soul every day. I use affirmations and positive self-talk. I’ve started yoga and am exercising (almost) every day. I’m trying hard to stop obsessing over the past and worrying about the future… I just enjoy today. I’m doing things for me… I even had a massage the other day, it was heaven! I’m learning to bring the Sacred into my art too and have signed up for both Kelly Rae Roberts Hello Soul Hello Mixed Media course and Tracey Verdugo’s Paint Mojo.
And of course The Force has now brought me you Flora Bowley and your Bloom True Boot Camp. Apparently it’s also going to bring me a few more hours in the day so I can fit all this in and your Bloom True E-Course… I have faith!
Things are much better now, calmer, and brighter. I can feel that inner glow returning… a kind of knowing where I used to cling to hope, faith instead of fear. I think I’m doin ok. Actually I think I might be happy. Whoohoo!
Thank you Flora for inspiring me to invite the Sacred in xxx
