A little crystal grid activation and anchoring on this enchanting snowy day of the New Year.
Creating an intentional, Reki charged altar for my creative projects I choose to cultivate, nurture, and manifest for 2017.
I’m leaving the candle to burn all afternoon and evening after gently placing intents in it and releasing them for the result most aligned with greatest good at heart.
Ritual that feels natural to your essence is a symbolic and tangible way of integrating your intents with spiritual potency and focused commitment.
Anything you can do to create sacred space for things will enhance your experiences, bring greater presence to your life, help you to be more thoughtful with what you are choosing to create and with your beliefs around it, and draw in support from more resources you have available to you.
Always remember to release your intentions to All That Is, without attachment to specific outcome, but with intent for it to be for the highest good of all concerned.
You don’t have to be forceful about putting your intentions out there…you simply need to embody what that feels like to have them and to feel and believe it with all of your heart.
Then continue forward with actions that support your intentions, as you are the bridge to getting to the result most in alignment with your essence.
This is an intro to the story I alluded to in my “Neverending Story” flashback post today, dedicated to Laura. She reminded me she had posted a bit about our magickal experience back in September of 2009, from which my today post: https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/a-little-neverending-story-flashback/ was inspired. I didn’t have a blog back then, and forgotten she’d written this, so I share it with you now.
Here’s a fun little trip down memory lane with Laura and I, which but scratches the surface of what took place. The story went on quite a journey that continued more than was shared here and took us down a winding road after our second 5-hour sit-down, and even into dream time that night that we woke to.
The way Laura ends her post is perfect:
“Two fair maidens met a werewolf on Full Moon’s Eve” or “the shaman and the faeries walked together and down the road” or “a person’s word is bond.”
But I think I’ll just say, “we tiptoed into the Pomegranate Garden, tasted the fruit and smiled.”
Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything! Last week, my friend Tania Marie and I traveled to the Mendocino Coast for some much needed rest and relaxation. She had just finished the fourth in a series of five major paintings, and I still hadn’t officially celebrated the release of Schizandra and the Gates of Mu. I only had a few days for this getaway, so we picked somewhere close and dear to my heart. (Some of you may remember how much fun I had in Fort Bragg/Mendocino on my birthday last year.)
We truly experienced a magical, mind-blowing trip this time, much of which I am still processing. I’ll give you a bit of a recap here, though:
OK, first and foremost, Tania and I wanted to eat. We had originally planned to go to Santa Cruz, CA, but when we learned that their raw…

Another insightful share today from Laura, which I resonate with. Like Laura, I see the same all the time with people holding on to rigid certainties and rejections that are black and white – refusing fear, uncertainty, and vulnerability, rather than embracing, exploring, and integrating them into something more expansive and liberating than an “either/or” reality.
The short four and a half minute video of Joanna Macy speaking on “Uncertainty” is wonderful. Enjoy!
