SoulCollage® for Me...

SoulCollage® for me is a sacred listening practice. It is a very personal form of prayer that takes me to the place where soul and Divine Consciousness meet. From the hilarious to the terrifying, the complicated to the serene, each card is a gift, an offering from Me to me. The practice of SoulCollage® merges all of the senses into one fluid motion of inner awakening; sight becomes sound, becomes touch-opening memory to taste, smell and the mysterious sixth sense of intuitive knowing. Creation and creativity flow through each of us in all moments. SoulCollage®, like yoga, meditation, prayer, dance, song and deep uproarious laughter has the power to remind us of this truth. I have experienced every card to be Love at first sight (even the shadowy ones)…a love that grows as I blossom into the woman I am becoming, day by day, moment by moment.

Patience

I am the one who sits in this place I have been many times before.
I am the one who sees myself restless and longing remembering that ease was once part of this practice of sitting.
I am the one who is braced against this chair this container…choosing to hold on instead of relaxing, releasing as I had done in the past.
Or am I reading this wrong?
I am the one, the image contained within the other…(the older image being the larger one)…my old way of being…supported by this relaxed version/vision held beneath/within waiting and being born.

What do you have to give me?
I offer you this re-visioning of what is real now.
What do you want from me?
I want you to relax into this birthing chair…release your grip on the arm of the past and open to the possibility of just sitting, waiting and letting go…allowing the process to unfold on it’s own. Trust what you know…remember the breaths between bearing down and how they allow movement to flow at its own natural pace.
Is there anything else you want to tell me?
Love your tattered, worn and torn places…they will mend themselves if you let them.
Be Patient.

Hello dear one. I hope you are feeling stronger these days.

I have a wonderful tour of Bloglandia that follows a magical map that I drew up in honor of my 1-year blogiversary. The tour includes several stops to all of my favorite people and places. I think you'll recognize a few of them. {wink}

When you swing by be sure to scroll to the end of the tour to learn about my new blog, True North Arts.

Can you feel the buzz?

Let's catch up soon!

xoxo k

Hi Laura! I finally made it over to read your blog/s and found this one speaks to me the most. I love your collage cards and your inspirational writing here! In particular I love this post on patience - "open to the possibility of just sitting, waiting and letting go"! Timely for me to read... I used to do collage many years ago, but never like what you do here! Yours are so full of wonderful imagery, symbol and meaning. And the writings that go with them speak to my heart...

I am sorry to hear of your MS... Even though your body may be weakened I can tell your heart still sings :)

Many blessings - Christine
