I was gifted a beautiful intentional exercise by my wild and lovely pal Nadya. Me – being me – took it a step further.
We were talking about making order out of seeming chaos, embracing the chaos and accepting that perhaps – just perhaps – layered under the mystery is a larger natural order. We also spoke of directed energy. Taking desires from a vision to an intent but – rather than focusing on the ‘thing’ – focusing on the qualities. The energy of the qualities imbued, given name – thus give form to formless energy. The outcome remains a mystery and therein lies all the fun. Seriously – isn’t it the anticipation of a gift that keeps us juiced rather than the gift itelf? Well – maybe not if we’re talking about shoes…
You’ll need time, a sharpie, and a place where rocks gather -
Take a few breaths, empty your mind of the chatter and focus on your heart. Without taking too much time – write the qualities that your heart is speaking to you on your rock. Take a few minutes to appreciate the message given.
Here is the message – all of these qualities you’ve named – you already possess – you just got distracted and forgot. The ‘things’ you desire that you think will give you these qualities – once acquired – don’t. Start with affirming these already exist within you regardless of any outward or worldly appearances.
It’s written in stone….

It's a free-spirited, creative and loving place where she explores her inner light and lets it shine out the world. She was inspired to create her website after discovering the "light gaps" in the Costa Rican jungle: "Light Gaps allow direct sunlight to reach the forest floor. Dormant seedlings suddenly have the opportunity to germinate and grow. This energy has a direct and immediate effect on its environs." If you could use a light gap in your life then you should check out her site! It's a wonderful place to feel inspired to reclaim your own passions, find your dormant courage, and soak up some beautiful poetry, reflections and unique stories.
