Light in your heart

Vision of Gaia by ninquelen

Hello dear ones,

There are days when words seem to stand still and close like the petals of a flower at night asking to trust the closing as much as the opening. There are days that fold words into the innermost recesses of our being while they usher tender moments of synchronistic encounters with life.

I realize I’ve taken a long pause in my writings. It has been in a period of incubation I like to think, of living suspended in the threads of a new rhythm set in motion as I learn to navigate my new life thrust into a full time job as an architect and a transformative relationship; while still dipping my toes in the waters of Sacred Flow work.

In doing what I feel life is asking me to do—to risk, to trust, to open to life beyond the safety of the words and lines that were my refuge, my sanctuary, my only companions for years;  I have felt words emptying out of my being—not on the page—but out in the sky like birds migrating elsewhere. What are these birds searching for, what are they seeing, what are they experiencing, and perhaps most importantly, what will they bring back? I stand in stillness waiting for their return while my days swoon with yearning like waves reaching from the depths of the earth.

A sense of motion dispels the silence and ends the stillness. And light is born in the heart of darkness. A seed of light pulses to illuminate our path, a forgotten song echoes from the core of the cosmos to shake every cell of our being and take root in the deepest chambers of our heart, a call is heard in all directions to disintegrate the constrictions that restrict our spirit.

The song that always stirs in my heart is the song of the feminine awakening us gently to our wholeness. The rebirth of the feminine does not entail the annihilation of the masculine but the realization that a precious aspect of our being and of life itself has been suppressed, neglected, ridiculed and silenced; and that this realm seeks to see the light of day, to speak its wisdom, heal our fragmentation and brings us back into harmony with the heart of nature–our home.

I dedicate this post to all that is dormant and gently awakening within each one of us, to all that is becoming alive and free in the waves of our consciousness and the flesh of our becoming; to all that wants to be seen, heard, loved, nurtured; to all that wants to receive a YES that shatters old limitations and opens up new possibilities as individuals and as parts of a sacred whole.

Deep gratitude for the gift of life, for the gift of love flowing through us all.

Full Moon Blessings and Merry Christmas,

A creative space of flow

Dear ones, How do we open up to more creativity in our work and lives? Personally, I love the initial burst of inspiration but I also love the sustained rhythm of focus, tenacity and determination that carries my work through the valleys and peaks of expression. They work in unison, like the yin and yang…

The heart of feminine space–the spell of the sensuous bedroom

Hello beautiful ones, We earthlings are naturally wired to be drawn to spaces that nurture our life force. This winter, I can’t help but feel its call to dive in within the crevices of my heart in spaces and places that nourish my soul. Are you feeling the same pull? I am feeling drawn to…

On the edge of the wild. The alchemy of plants

Hello beautiful ones, To balance my intense work in architecture these days and hence my more infrequent writings, I live now on the edge of the wild–where I find myself recharging, recalibrating, regenerating in a space of stillness and subtle flow. I moved to a beautiful place in Marin, surrounded by plants and animals bringing magic…

Waste and our soul’s hungers

Every time I go out in nature, I listen more deeply to the voice of the earth compelling us to remember another way of living more lightly on HER body. But even though I am sensitive to this message, it has been difficult to write and compose these emerging thoughts into a cohesive whole without…

On finding the right container to grow

Dear wanderers, It is spring and nature is bursting with life. And I realize I haven’t shared anything with you in over two months. It feels strange, like part of my life has been quietly simmering inside my heart. It also feels natural. How often we force ourselves to produce and thus ignore the rhythms…

Seeing in the dark with the light of your own heart

“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…
