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.

A River of Stones: July 28



Enveloped in silence, Nancy and I sat in companionship for our spiritual direction session. We waited for sensation, image, something... words to be released from a mouth that has struggled with speech these weeks, and there, emanating from the center of my belly, quite low, like a seed rooting down whilst simultaneously pushing upward and outward shoots and leaves birthed a response:

"Bathed in blessing...you are bathed in blessing."

A Small Stone offering: 
And so it was, is, will be...
May all of you take a deep breath and listen for a whisper emerging:

"Bathed in blessing...you are bathed in blessing."

  8. A silhouetted tree, always beautiful against the sky. A whisper, always heard if you listen hard enough. Stay strong my friend, you are in my thoughts.

  9. You truly are bathed in blessing as are we all, just most do not realise it. A beautiful yet sombre photo.

    No matter how hard our road, we are the ones travelling it and responsible for every step.
