Poetry

….continuation of creativity expressed

These poems are inspired by the present textile art piece I am working on.

Golden DeLight
I Am Awareness and Energy
in a place of Being and Knowing
I Am a Sovereign Being, here now
in a place of living Fully, Happily and Growing
breath in, breath out
breath in, breath out
breath in, breath out
I AM my hearts Golden DeLight

………………

Nature’s Sweet DeLight
Opportunity arises
a breeze flows through the air
My branches are dancing, swaying and moving
to Nature’s Sweet DeLight
All around me nature’s sweet grace dances together
to the celestial music composed in the air
As the breeze moves on to my branches graced in stillness
universal source nourishes the dance within

With Sweet Grace.

 

Poetry

….a continuation of creativity expressed

Light Warrior
Light Investigator
Light Be-er
Sometimes I just
can’t stop writing
about Light!

………………

As I begin this brand new day
in my light Beingness way
I extend filaments of joy and love
just as the breeze carries the flight of a dove

………………

I Love All of You
every crevice, every turn, every particle
All of You
your smile, your doubting self, your curious nature
All of You
inside and out, outside and in, heart space everywhere now
All of You
all that you live, all that you are, all that embraces you
All of You
every thread of your universe, every presence of your Being
All of You
I Love All of You

Shaping Our World

Comes from Within

At one time it was thought the world was flat.

At one time, it was thought the world was flat.

It was eventually discovered the world is round.

What truly shapes our world? Leading from the heart.

Friendship Art


Connection Through Our Gifts

Keara-community-web-2
Illustrator Keara McGraw – Gifting Artwork to Friends
Keara-community-web-1
Illustrations on their own are strong, heART felt and beautiful.

Four friends are to each receive a flower illustration. The magic happens when Keara arranges the four illustrations together and adds the color. The color addition creates a new collective art piece symbolically illustrating that each recipient and illustrator are connected and part of a whole. A powerful representation of how artistry, friendship and meaning come together through our gifts and talents we share with the world.

Which one resonates with you?

Let’s use the colors of summer for an inward check-in. Which summer energy pattern resonates with you in this moment? Using this playful Expressive Arts tool you too can paint these energy patterns! Begin from the center (paper center and heart center), paint with rainbow colors or an array of vibrant colors, incorporate clockwise and counterclockwise brush strokes and paper rotation. Be aware and open for Divine surprises – opportunities for Self-discovery and uncovering new patterns that speak to you can arise. Have fun!

Gems: Becky Jaine

Gems: Soul Sisters & Soul Brothers known for their innate beauty, luminescence, and spectrum of wisdom that touches every one of us.

Following Her Heartpath

Becky Jaine – mother, daughter, wife, sister, writer, facilitator, obsessive lover of nature and our precious planet and us 7 billion humans, and so much more. Where ever she goes, what ever she’s putting her heart into, a beautiful burst of light energy radiates kindness and love. For Becky, life as a human is such a gift.

Becky, originally from England, is based in Raleigh, N.C. with her family. She shares that her children, ages 5, 11 and 12 are her greatest teachers, They are re-teaching me everything I thought I knew about the world, through their reflections and questions like my son’s “What is war?” and my daughters’ “Why do we have war to fight for peace?” I am blessed to be their mother and feel such an awesome responsibility to preserve their spirits. I believe all children are sages. I try to withhold my reasoning and answers to create a space to let them express their own ideas and thoughts.

In 2013 Becky put her beliefs into action creating a program for middle-school-aged girls called Creative GIRL. Four times a year Becky and the girls get together for playshops to paint, write, make things like jewelry and clay, and to focus on kindness: kindness to ones self AND kindness creativity campaigns to make things for strangers. The power of creativity PLUS kindness is world-changing. Just like women, girls too need a safe place to share and shine, and it is an abSOULute pleasure and privilege for Becky to define and offer this program. Becky is very aware that boys need a similar space to honor all they are, but for now, her work is dedicated to women and girls.

Becky recently shared her intentions and inspiration for Creative GIRL in a special format called PechaKucha (20 slides, 20 seconds per slide….go!) that is now available on youtube.

Also in 2013, Becky created a sacred space and time for women to generate self kindness and love through Sacred Kindness Retreats in the NC mountains. She has co-created three of these amazing pilgrimages, with the fourth planned in October 2014. They are joy-filled, creative and loving celebrations of the amazing and diverse women who come. Being an adult does not mean we should play less, Becky feels being an adult means we now have wisdom to guide us into deeper and more powerful play. During the retreats, the women are reminded of their playful nature, and together generate heaps of grown-up JOY!

Creating these programs and retreats has put Becky on her heartpath. Kindness is her currency. With a new movement taking shape called The Gift Economy, she has created a hybrid version offering her programs for a price with the caveat: If people do not have the financial resources to pay, they can either pay what they can or come without paying anything. The nature of her work develops relationships, so people get to know her and want to reciprocate using their own gifts, responding in support—not only money but perhaps clothes for her children, art supplies, or promoting her work to their friends.

For Becky kindness itself is a practice. She reminds herself that if she does 3 things every day for the next 40 years that will mean 43,800 kind acts. A little every day adds up…even the smallest act changes the world for the better. Becky’s life’s work is to realize her own power and be aware of the ripple effects of her intentions and the choices she makes. Becky expresses, How can I exist and celebrate humanity without compromising Mother Earth? I’m learning…. I want to create opportunities to celebrate us humans and our innate powers and spectacular nature.  Shine on!
