Dear One ~
Last week I had the opportunity to spend two days in an intimate setting with my sister, Maureen, and my inspirational mentor, Jan Phillips. She gave a concert at the Siena Center in Racine, WI on Friday night followed by two days of inspiration and motivation exercises. I was able to connect not only with my inner voice, but with the spiritual energy of thirty other seekers. I was in heaven; relaxed, centered, focused on my dreams, and making new friends all the while sharing time and mutual encouragement with my sis. Aaaaa, bliss!
During the weekend exercises, I came face to face with my fears. As an artist, I am often filled with self-doubt, especially when the rejection notices appear for exhibits that I worked hard to enter. Then the questions start. Is this art worthy of the public eye? Am I doing my very best work? do I really need to be on Facebook and Linkedin? Am I wasting my time? These are the questions that block the forward movement on my path of sharing the LoveLights©.
Jan's exercises helped me to discover that my fears are an absense of FAITH. Something to ponder. Then I had the opportunity to share the mini-portfolio of LoveLights© that I carry in my purse. I was grateful for the misty-eyed validation; the oooo's and ahhh's of the group that encouraged me to continue creating these mandalas.
I came away from the retreat with a new awareness of my gifts and a re-newed conviction to share them. This is my dream: To live a joy-filled life, surrounded by Love, while creating and sharing these LoveLights©.
What does your DREAM look like?
Are you living it?
