Dear One ~
Sometimes you may wonder what motivates me to create these LoveLights. It has been difficult to put into words my feelings on this subject. These mandalas emerge from a deep desire to share my Hamsa (God), Faith, Wisdom, and Love with you. It is why I am here, I believe.
So often you turn to me for a listening ear or a kind word, a boost. I have come to realize that this is my life's purpose ~ my GIFT. As a teenager, I wondered why I never 'fit in' with my peers. Oh, I had friends, but I was neither a part of the 'IN crowd' or the 'dirtballs'. I just seemed to make friends and get along with everyone. Somehow they all came to me in confidence to tell their stories and feel better for the unloading of their 'stuff'. I never understood how or what I did to deserve these secrets, but I carried them all and went on my way.
Being the oldest of eight siblings had it's share of responsibility as well. Having strict parents who 'ran a tight ship', mom and dad expected me to be a 'good example' of following their rules and my Sib's looked to me to pave their way to freedom. It was often a tough spot to be in. I am, however, grateful for the many lessons learned in that life that have made me the person that I am today. The realization of how time and LIFE has transformed me was revealed on a recent vacation where my birth name was used. Printed on tags and rosters, I was greeted with "Cathleen" constantly and it became obvious to me that it no longer fit. From my journal: I have not heard my name Kasia in days. It's strange, but I realized this morning that I feel like a phony being called by my birth name. It no longer suits me. I am Kasia, plain and simple. Authentically in the core of my being, I resonate with the sound of that name. It IS who I AM! Confident, independent, artistic ME ~ authentically."
Fast forward to today. Not much has changed in the way that people call on me to tell me their stories. It happens so naturally, and often. Recently, I received a phone call of gratitude from another 'Dear One' who said "our conversation yesterday was like getting $160/hour therapy session for free. You often give me something to think about. Thank you for your words of wisdom." That's me, when I am not in the studio creating the LoveLights with embedded words of wisdom, I am out in the world attempting to share my Love and Light.
