"In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust, even though the moment may call for you to leap empty-handed into the void."
- The Book of Runes by Ralph H. Blum
Last year, as many of you know, I had my Fairy Booth up at the Arts Riot Truck Stop every Friday night for 25 weeks and I gave people “Fairy Card Readings”. After each of these short, down-to-earth, light hearted, practical conversation a person would get to pick the fairy that resonated most strongly with them. The one that headed home most often with people was this remarkable and much-needed fairy.
I've been recalling a moment in which my inner self said 'yes!' to something I instinctively knew would irrevocably change my life. I was already aware I could no longer live the life I had been living so I seized it.
Now, nicely woven into the new life I’ve been stitching I can marvel at the ability I had then to 'Dare Greatly' as Brene' Brown calls it in her book titled with the same words. This new life continues to be full of opportunities to do this as I move forward in cultivating what Brene' Brown's work supports;
“ wholehearted living.”
Brene’ Brown has made a list of 10 'guideposts’ that assist us in achieving this. The one I’m thinking of a lot lately is "Cultivating Intuition and Trusting Faith' so I was delighted that the fairy I drew from my deck to write about today was “Trusting the Way”. Each guidepost has a complementary aspect and this fairy assists with that as well; “Let go of the need for certainty”.
I’m back at the Truck Stop again twice a month. Please stop in or write me.
Soon, as I “Dare Greatly” by moving into my new, lovely studio space, you’ll find me there doing workshops and retreats.
Be strong and bold and soft and real!
