Happy Valentine’s day dear ones! Valentine’s day can be a painful day for many, a reminder of the love we don’t have. But is this true? I encourage us to open our eyes and hearts to the love that is pulsing alive within and around us, not just today, but every day of our lives. “One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

I am reminded that love is not a straight line; it is a web of interconnectedness, an intricate pattern of immense beauty.

 
When we expect love to flow only through one channel, we miss an opportunity to experience its manifestation in multiple directions, pathways, and expressions. Today, I celebrate the love that flows in places that often go unrecognized, ignored, repressed, neglected. May we tend to these tender spaces and places that crave to share the love that is already there.

I’m grateful for loved ones, kindred souls, sacred waters, the flow of our blood, synchronicities bringing us together to do good work, the kindness and joy that flow when we open our hearts. Today and every day, may we feel loved by all of creation. And may we open to give and receive what is truly ours to feel.

In kinship to all our relations,

Dear ones, I am wishing us a blessed 2014 under this new moon. May we flow more freely to reveal, feel and experience the fiber of the sacred in our spaces, hearts and lives. May we pursue our life-enhancing dreams with courage and a fierce heart. But first, what do we need to release in…

Seeing in the dark with the light of your own heart

MarkDouglass-showroomlamps

“What is to give light must endure burning.” ~ Viktor Frankl Winter invites us to journey into the heart of darkness, a darkness that can activate our deepest fears. Why? It’s just difficult to see in the dark. But darkness isn’t bad. Light flickers in the dark, which reveals its illuminating power. There is no…

Thoughts and quotes on courage and risk taking

dd9d7f083e410716daa4eb7e3e0ca891

Have you witnessed a child’s spontaneity, play, and sense of wonder? It saddens me to see this dwindle in humans as we grow up. I can’t help but wonder how much we compromise our need for self expression and integrity for the fear of getting hurt. It takes much work to recover our authentic spark…

Everyday flow of gratitude

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” ~ Meister Eckhart I recently had an important conversation on the nature of thanksgiving, which reminded of my article “Pachamama illuminating Thanksgiving.” A little boy in the place where I volunteer brought up some painful memories to the surface. The details of…

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…

Trust this not knowing. It’s the crack that lets the light in

 ”Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~ Roald Dahl It is so liberating to accept that more often than not, we don’t know. Life opens us to receive those hints of deepest resonance that whisper yes, free up some energy, let go, trust, make space for magic. The universe flowers with…

Beyond Decor | The Soul of your Space

sea-legs and sacred geometry screen

“As with all my work, whether it’s a leaf on a rock or ice on a rock, I’m trying to get beneath the surface appearance of things. Working the surface of a stone is an attempt to understand the internal energy of the stone.”
 ~Andy Goldsworthy We need to illuminate the way we engage with…

Journey to the Sacred. Finding Sanctuary on the Inca Trail.

inca trail collage by marjory mejia

My ancestors, like many Indigenous traditions around the world, felt an ancestral pull to honor the body and spirit of the earth and build in harmony with the land. It is this sacred connection to land and cosmos that inspired them to design an architecture that flows not against, but rather, in harmony with the rhythms of the earth and cosmos. Honoring contours of earth, their structures adapted to the formations of the landscape. Their architecture didn’t seek to dominate the land but to enhance its beauty…
