We are away for the week, tucked up in a small cottage in Cornwall.
This has been a lesson in taking my work with me and being able to carry on creating no matter where I am.
This is hubby's home turf and I always feel at home being here.
Little Luna has really embraced the whole Cornish beach experience. It has been mixed, weather wise, but there's nothing I quite like more than putting all my outdoor gear on, my doggy wellies and bracing the wind and the rain.
Time here, working away, creating my daily muses and completing commissions from the little table in the lounge gives me lots of thinking time about what 2014 holds for me.
I can either sit around and wait to find out, or I can sit down to plan what I want to happen next year.
I know that I want to feel a certain way and I'm going to set about making these feelings happen.
What I know for sure is I feel really called to create art, teach art, write and create colourful healing books and guides plus courses that guide people to heal the way they see themselves.
The Daily Muse (in December)
Last week I introduced you to the first 11 Muses that I have completed. I am really getting something out of creating them, they are soothing me every day because first thing in the morning, I sit down with a blank page and pencil, then I just listen to whatever the message.
Now I am on Day 18 and past the half way mark, really excited to see what I will do with all of these muses and how I will continue to create every day. What's next?
And today, day 18
Today we have Muse Clarissa who wants us to 'Lie Down, Be Still, Listen' 10 minutes to soften.
Kris Carr and Buddy
You know Kris Carr right?
She's a New York Times and #1 Amazon best-selling author, wellness activist and cancer thriver.
In 2003 she was diagnosed with a very rare and incurable (yet thankfully slow-growing) stage 4 cancer. As she writes:
"This whiskey tango foxtrot moment (that’s military lingo for WTF?!) sparked a deep desire in me to stop holding back and start living like I mean it! I wanted to feel better, love harder and enjoy my life more fully. So I hit the road on a deep healing pilgrimage and have never looked back. Nearly ten years later, my life is truly, madly magical–even with cancer. If I can pull that off, just imagine what YOU can do!"
I have been really moved by Kris and her vegan lifestyle, plus she's a huge dog lover and I can so resonate with this. In October, she found a stray dog living out in the woods and both her and her husband rehomed him. Buddy has captured the hearts of those who follow her and I am so moved by the fact that Buddy has healed, both physically and emotionally.
I felt called to draw them both.
So next week it's Christmas, I really look forward to connecting with you then and in the meantime I hope you're finding some joy from my Daily Muse series and I hope you're finding serenity in this festive season.
