Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Purple Asters

just purple asters

cascading down a stone wall

all I want to be

and all that I am

sunkissed stones for a warm bed

no worries, I rest

No big changes...just hangin' out in my regular bed...I see my doctor tomorrow. Sorry I haven't written more and that I've not been good at visiting your beautiful blogs, I'm pretty worn out. Thank you as always for all of your kind words of support dear ones. I'll be by when I'm feeling a bit more sunny and vibrant like these asters : )
gentle steps,



  1. Beautiful woman
    Beautiful soul,

    Thank you for the beautiful words and beautiful flowers.

    I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. :0)
    I was visiting your blog, while you were visiting mine. How wonderful!

    Thank you for your kind words. They mean so much to me.

  3. I have these same Asters. They are full of buds and getting ready to pop open. Have a good night :)

  4. Asters are one of my favourite fall flowers! There's a Sunshine Award for you over at my blog today, Laura (Oct. 4).

  5. Sending you much love and light. Just rest and let your body heal. xoxo

  6. Love your asters. I hope to put some in next year.

    Just to be is a blessing ~

  7. Lots of love and big hugs to you, Laura. :~)

  8. Just rest, friend. Sending you love and prayers.

  9. Thinking of you with deep love and affection. Wish there was something I could do. Rest easy. I am trying to do that but there are a couple of things I need to get square around here before I can relax and clean my bathroom. I can't wait. That probably sounds odd, but my intuition is telling me that the last job I do is going to be sanitizing my living quarters and bathroom before I get the Call. I am getting anxious.
    Everyone is saying, "Just clean your bathroom!"
    I have priorities.
    Be well friend and take care.

  10. Rest up and feel better soon, sweet Laura.

  11. Sacred rest for a weary body is a blessed thing. Enjoy.... "I am rest." xo

  12. Synchronicity at play - I took a shot of some wild asters in a park today - some bumbles were still buzzing about though it's gotten so cold here (only a high of 46 today). And I smiled at seeing the fall blooms and their gorgeous color against a backdrop of autumn-hued sumac.

    I'm glad you're resting comfortably and I hope all goes well with the doctor visit.

  13. oh Laura... how i wish i could sit by your bed and drink tea with you and stare at the purple asters. i'm praying strength and hope for you tonight sister. love e.

  14. So few words can say so much. Lovely, both words and photo. You are in my prayers.

  15. Your short posts are just as delightful to read as the longer ones; filled with beautiful sentiments in pictures and words...

  16. I am imagaging you being as vibrant as those asters as you listen and pray your way toward your meditation sharing this weekend...

    hugs and divine shining shining shining on you as you take your gentle steps.

  17. A quiet follower of your blog- sending rest filled blessings-

  18. just like that rock garden .... crack and crumble those rocks .... simply by roots

  19. love the Asters, I mean how can one go wrong with purple...the color of creativity

    ours is not to wonder why, it is just to be

  20. Sending love and light and the gentle whispers of warm fall winds to you as you rest.

  21. Laura,
    I wish I could wrap some better around this cyber hug.

    Be gentle with yourself.

    Now when I see asters, I will think of you.
    And that is a gift... a beautiful beautiful gift.
