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.

Celebrate The Trees

Worlds in worlds I see
Growing on backs and shoulders
Earth’s heart beats through these

Expressions of the Divine
Celebrate the trees

Without their presence
Our survival could not be
Life breathes life to life

  1. Beautiful Laura. Beauty being birthed, everyday


  2. I'm glad that trees have their own special day!

  3. This is wonderful, Laura, and I loved reading about the holy day. "On Tu Bishvat we must renew personal growth, just as the trees on Tu Bishvat begin to draw moisture from the earth." So true for us and for all of life. Time for renewal is neglected. In my own life, I have been longing for renewal and had hoped to have an intense period of that with a Feb. trip to Fl, which has now fallen through. Perhaps March. In the meantime, I am continuing to find ways and to set aside periods of time for renewal. This morning's full moon over the water felt like a symbol of renewal too...

    Truly, so much of what you share here deeply resonates with my heart and inner knowing. I treasure each post (even if I don't comment, I read each one). xo

  4. Simply beautiful and there for all who would see.

  5. I never celebrated trees with such beautiful images before. I thank them for my breath.
