Multitasking: Wishes and Dreams ❀






I keep coming back to the lesson of learning to live in Time rather than fighting against it. No, really, I draw this oracle card on a regular basis! One of the things I have wanted to be more connected to was a sense of natural time: the cycle of the moon, the day, the seasons. So this month I decided to take part in Jamie Ridler's Full Moon Dream Boards. I loved giving myself the two weeks from the new moon to the full moon in order to ponder Jamie's prompt - The Pink Moon and what seeds do I want to plant? What do I want to blossom in my life right now?




Last night I drove home under the almost full moon. I was aware from these days of gathering the images and words for my board of the immense need for me to simplify, slow down and focus. The beauty of the moon reminded me of the power and grace inherent in stillness. This is what I have been craving: to be Still and aware. Awake, Present and Centered. A lot is going on within me and I need time and space to process it all. I want to let the juicy goodness soak in, appreciating the gifts and celebrating the singular beauty of each blossom as it arises in my life. I don't want to rush anything. I want to feel my connection to the natural cycles of life and from that connection let flow my creativity. Flow and grow, that is what I want for myself in this phase of my life.





My Dream Board seems to flow nicely into this week's Wishcasting. I wish to invest in these seeds: Stillness so I can hear the call of my heart; Simplicity so I can see what is around and within me; and Play so I can joyfully express the luminous beauty of this life.

  19. Lis, I just love the idea of flow and grow. For me, somewhere in there, I add with ease and simplicity. I can't wait to check out these sites you've mentioned too. And yes, I did sign up for Kelly Rae's ecourse. I've wanted to do exactly what she is offering with her as the instructor for what seems like so long and I cannot wait to get started :)

    best wishes to you!

  21. Dear Lis-I really love this idea of a dreamboard-and all the wonderful things you are inviting into your life. I was wondering if you were going to take Kelly's class? There is such a diverse group of people...I have been wanting to open an Etsy store for such a long time but have been procrastinating...uh, meditating:)...so this class comes at a perfect time! I also wanted to wish you a very BLISSFULL Mothers Day (as I won't be here). Namaste-Soraya
