Prayer Cards



The Practice

In early 2019 I began the personal practice of creating prayer cards as a way to stay balanced and in touch with my sacred center. These little gems have helped me through the changes occurring on the planet and will be a practice I keep possibly forever. 

I have enjoyed the messiness of the paint, markers and water, as well as the stillness and connection to something greater than myself. These colorful cards are what have held my deepest thoughts and desires as well as some pain, gratitude and requests for help. They are my little buddies!

The process is so simple and personal I never considered sharing it with anyone - until now. 

Sharing this practice feels right and timely and is a way to get what's inside...out. Starting with some grounding, sensing and scribbling we'll drop down into our heart space. I'll then guide us to play deeply with water, color and paper. We'll finish our time together with some writing - a prayer or affirmation or even a letter to your inner child, higher self, angels, God, Source, The Universe - to keep us connected. 

Have a look at what's involved in this short video:



Part Process / intuitive Art and Part writing  this practice requires NO ART EXPERIENCE and just a few simple art supplies (of course if you have a studio full of art materials, that's good too!)


Gather Your Tools

 Here's what you'll need - some things you may have at home already (think kids or grandkids art supplies) and all are available through Amazon or your local craft store.

*sturdy paper (preferably white but even brown craft paper would be okay) – roughly 9×12 (this size will make 2 cards)

*craft paint - colors you feel drawn to ( there are variety packs available too) acrylic paint and finger paint or tempera paint should work too.

*Magic Markers – for some scribbling

*a pen (black or blue ink)

*paint brush /sponge brush (or use your fingers)

*Water

*paper towels

*paint pens, crayons, collage images, stickers, rubber stamps etc. could certainly be added, but not essential

Please Note - I have made several cards with just highlighters, water, paper towels and a pen

An Open Letter To Those Who Would Diminish My Fire

To whoever seeks to diminish my flame - consciously, unconsciously, maliciously or with the best of intentions, Thank you for your attention. Thank you for wishing me well and trying to save me or put me on the right path. Thanks also to those with an envious nature and hidden resentment, who choose to shoot invisible beams of meanness my way. Thank you, as this adds fuel to my fire...... and by the way, I am just fine.  My way may not look like yours. My way may look like nothing at all. My way, may even look as if I am lost or floundering, I assure you this is not the case. MY life is precious, encompassing the good and the bad. 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

Reciprocity And The Permission To Let Go

reciprocity : a situation or relationship in which two people or groups agree to do something similar for each other, to allow each other to have the same rights, etc. : a reciprocal arrangement or relationship Things have been asking to change in my life for awhile. As a result I now find it nearly impossible to show up for anything where I carry most of the energy. The over-efforting it takes to keep things alive leaves me tired and run down and I'm done. If you are in my life and are not holding up your end of things, our relationship will be changing. Please know this does not mean I love you less, it means I have to start loving me more. This turn of events will be applied across the board - work, family, friends, old habits - it all has to change.  As of this very moment I will only be offering up as much as I am given. Reciprocity.  The thought of not having to work so hard feels delicious in my body. The idea that I can do this and it doesn't mean I am giving u

The Art of Interior Activism

This weekend I spent much of my time in the studio having intimate conversations and creating with women in person and on Skype. Some of our time was held in sacred silence, where we met ourselves deeply with varying art supplies. Other times we painted, ending our time together with some potent conversation.  What I discovered was, f or whatever reason, there are many of us who are not called to attend rallies and demonstrations right now. And even though we are practicing activism in our own ways, we've been feeling like we aren't doing it right. We've even felt a little guilty and some shame for not showing up in the same way as (what feels like) the majority of our country right now. Not everyone has the time, money, physical strength or desire to attend rallies or protests. However, many of us do recognize the great chasm that exists in the US and know it is time to do something. This has fed our hunger to go within and become curious about the division going on
