Sacred Flow in the big apple. What you make space for matters..

 

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. ~Zora Neale Hurston

As some of you may know I am in the big apple, enjoying a creative breath, pause, space. Letting my art rest, breathe, absorb. Even in moments of stillness, life flows incessantly. In the midst of silences, negative spaces and all those lines in between, life brims and overflows.

Chrysler building. Art Deco Architecture

Here is my beloved Chrysler. A gem reaching the sky. The architect in me loves to look up at the buildings beautifully dancing their way into the skies like golden spires.

But there is plenty that draws my gaze back to the sacred earth..


Here is a blessing from John O’Donohue for those of you on the road..and aren’t we all making a home on the road on this journey called life?

For the traveler by John O’Donohue

..A journey can become a sacred thing:
Make sure, before you go,
To take the time
To bless your going forth,
To free your heart of ballast
So that the compass of your soul
Might direct you toward
The territories of spirit
Where you will discover
More of your hidden life,
And the urgencies
That deserve to claim you.

May you travel in an awakened way,
Gathered wisely into your inner ground;
That you may not waste the invitations
Which wait along the way to transform you.

May you travel safely, arrive refreshed,
And live your time away to its fullest;
Return home more enriched, and free
To balance the gift of days which call you.

~ John O’Donohue

So much heart this time around in NYC. Meeting lovely people and making space for joy and magic. So simple and yet so powerful. What are you making space for? Love to each one of you from this apple bursting with flavors. From my heart to yours,

Full Moon blessings. A feminine approach to self & space renewal

2012LickMoonriseMarch_baldridge900

There is a full moon rising and blessing us with her moonlight. The full moon invites us to release all that dims our light, all that holds us back in our spaces and heart. I am excited to share this clutter clearing ritual as spiritual practice. A feminine approach to self & space renewal. Why now? We are at a pivotal moment in history. Unconscious ways of inhabiting the earth feel like heavy weight on our hearts and shoulders.

Open to receive this healing vision

It is Women’s History Month and I’m excited to share words from strong women who lived poetic lives. Some quotes reverberate like waves crushing against the shore of my consciousness, bringing new life to the surface, from the depths of being. I love mermaids and I love the depths from where they come from.

“I must be a mermaid…have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living” ~Anais Nin

Infused with Spirit, this kind Earth

Rose by Marjory Mejia

So happy to have Infused with Spirit, this kind Earth be my first post in my Unleashing Flow Series! ..I once had a vision, the kind that melts your mind and opens the gates of your heart, wide..And it occurred to me that up until that moment I hadn’t realized something so primal, so imprinted in the memory of my cells. My feet long to walk on the body of the sacred earth and bless her as she breathes in and out, rapt in the beauty of our awakening.
