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.

Bright Blessings


 through 
the dark of night
I offer bright blessings to all
may we each open our hearts a little wider
 absorbing the love and peace that surrounds us
illuminating any darkness we feel
saturating us with
Spirit's sacred
light


may the returning light of winter
continuously sustain us, 
you, me, our beloveds,
all beings beyond
time and space
discovering
holiness 
exactly
where
we
are
