A few days ago I attended my first SoulCollage® workshop facilitated by Barbara Hadley. Wow! I have always liked collage but using it as a way to access my inner knowing felt like I had been handed a magic key. In the workshop we began to collage our first one or two cards for an eventual deck. This deck is completely unique and when finished will be a way I can connect with my truest self. The card I made in Barbara's workshop was my "Vision" card. What I really loved is after the card was made, we connected with a buddy, looked at our cards and just started speaking what the card had to tell us. My buddy wrote down what I was saying and I did the same for her. It was powerful! Here is what came out while I was looking at my card: "I am the one who....sees in the dark and knows which path to take. I use the elements to guide me and see color where there is none. I see light in the field. I am still and available." I am so excited to be joining forces with Barbara at Nectar with a weekend long workshop of SoulCollage and process painting in August! I can't think of a better way to connect with our creative knowing and I am curious to see what shows up.

The hard parts are welcome just as the fun and easy stuff are. My life is plainly ornate, small in the biggest of ways and full in its sparsity. My life sparkles from the inside out and it suits me. I have days when I feel weak and voiceless....I embrace them for I know they will come and go. I have days I feel on top of the world and that I a
