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.

Pausing to Notice


May our lives be bathed in the light of awareness; our hearts filled with gratitude, for the tiniest, beautiful details we could have passed right by had we not paused to notice.

  1. Laura, this is lovely, and right in sync with my own blog post today. May I share? An unexpected glimpse of moonlight...

    How wonderful it is when we can remember to stop and savor. Take a sacred pause....

  2. Hi Laura,
    What a lovely photograh, nature at one of its finest. Seeing the sunshine pour though the leaf, at this point in its journey as it prepares its "fall" is beautiful. It's being itself, fully embracing what is and its True Colors and Ture Essence are an inspiration. Nature is a testimony in letting the beauty of "what is" Shine the Divine through it. I thank you dear friend, for doing the same and inspiring all of us to do the same, too. Much love...

  3. "Haiku for Yu", inspired by today's post:

    sunshine through the leaf
    autumn's true colors revealed
    beauty of "what is"


    A reverse-haiku, for fun!:

    a macro-view of you, lets
    the divine shine through
    your soul's true colors each day

    thank you..xxooo! :) Cheryl

  4. Light puts glitz and glamour on nature.

    Light shines in the darkness, revealing the truth. In ourselves, this saves us.

    You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you, for sharing.

    Great capture of light shines through the pod.

    Blessings.
