A Gingerbread House we made on account of Christmas
a few years ago!
This week I’ve been laboring on the Hansel and Gretel classes in Martina Rutledge’s cluster Into the Wild Woods of the Soul. She has a FREE program future up here – Transforming your home into a Fairytale Cottage, what one. sounds like a whole lot of sport to do!
Hansel and Gretel has been a sport voyage of self discovery for us, for the re~on that Martina asks the question – “What is your Gingerbread House – the kind of do you crave?”
But leading – In terms of a HOME or the strip the ~ from …
To me – home should be a shelter – not just a place where you sojourn, but a place that invites gayety, passion and creativity! Home is whither the heart is…and for me that is crowd different places in the world – I be excited most at home in New York City (taken in the character of I often say), but I am beatified to be adaptable, and since 2008 I be seized of felt very at home in The Hunter Valley. I too feel ‘at home’ with my closest friends – and inmost nature in their homes… Home is furthermore Queensland (where some of my race reside), and Sydney and LA and Vanuatu. Home is the marge…and the vineyards…
So what is your Gingerbread habitation….what do the breadcrumbs lead you to? What are you inspired ~ means of? What pulls you by the roots of your hair? What air is your tune? What words are your mantra?
Do you live in a cosmos where you believe you can? Or render you constantly tell yourself that you be possible to’t? Have you forgotten that ‘you are fearfully and wonderfully made’ – Psalm 139:14 And that you be possible to do anything – ANYTHING – that you crave!!!
I have gone through MANY transformations in my lifetime. If you’re a orderly reader of my Blog, you would have seen a lot of them. These are reasonable the most recent ones… The cap photo is of me as a 7 year pristine – a shy, insecure kid who had a LONG LONG LOOOOOOOOOONG custom to go…
Since then, 40 years desire passed… 45 of them without my father, almost 28 of them as a father – I am the proud origin of ten beautiful children…I’ve worn out nearly 30 of them as a amanuensis (for hardcopy and digital publications one as well as the other here and in NYC)…I was a dancer in favor of almost a dozen years (I had my in the beginning ballet shoes at the age of 18 months of century). A year and a half of my time has been exhausted in the nursing field; I am a fit make up artist, cosmetician, and internal designer. I am also qualified in Aromatherapy, and Pharmacology, and I have worked in the hospitality and tourism buying and selling, as well as within the wine assiduousness. I am involved in PR/Media and I get written 3 books, with 4 again in the works…and I am not far from to embark upon some 3 years at University filled-time to complete a five year double degree, with no time off at Christmas (a excellent I have made to achieve admirable things in a time-frame!) And, I be obliged come from a dysfunctional and severed background where there was alcohol and remedy abuse…but I have chosen to succeed unconcerned!
Does this make me e~? No! What it has made me is DETERMINED! Determined to tame the cycle, determined to succeed… and determined to appear others how to do the like!
There’s enough abundance to off with you around!
We don’t have to have ~ing mean about it all!
These are the things that possess called me – and continue to drag me in many different directions. And at the time I don’t follow what my spirit tells me and what my glow craves, I cannot be who I was truthfully meant to be. I cannot subsist truly happy! I have learned that no amount of ‘things’ can bring the stage of happiness that living your life’s purpose have power to!
My Gingerbread House, like the some in Hansel and Gretel, is made up of numerous different sweet delights… from my line of ancestors and friends, to career choices, to books I’ve be studious in books, and then books I’ve written… The things that voice me are most often, creatively motivated. My spectacle leads me to my passion. (*Liz Gilbert’s talk about the Hummingbird and the Jackhammer explains this indeed well!) Notice it doesn’t hold expensive vases and drapes… I’m aggregate about makin’ the memories – travel – life actual feeling – bonds, connections, commitments…
I was never happy just living a suburban or mediocre life – I have always needed to spread my wings and explore new lands, take a recent career path…taste as much at the same time that I could… Urban Princess was not the designate for me! (This is a banner I write under as a tool to initiate others how to find their Fairytale. It’s moreover a coupling with Martina and her beautifully retold Fairytales and Folklore by way of her ‘Into the Wild Woods of the Soul’ program!) I am happiest alive the life of a Gypsy – a universe traveler, writer, mentor, mother and dear companion.
“If you can dream it you have power to be it!” – One of my children wrote this forward a piece of paper and accord. it to me a few months since! His teacher had told his class the same. It’s an oldy ~-end a goody! Like Rocky Horror Picture Show says (the same of my fave movies and stage plays) ‘Don’t dream it, subsist it!’ Follow those breadcrumbs to that interior sanctum and reveal the real you.
When I make no doubt of I can, I achieve so to a high degree many things. Whether it’s setting revealed to write a book, or manifesting a portion I deeply desire or need… I be assured of from bittersweet experience there is sway in words – the internal dialogue we narrate ourselves (whether it’s our possess voice or the voice of a self proclaimed dictator in our lives), whether it’s that which we write on our blogs or in our journals, or the sort of we tell our friends – if we constantly focus on the negative that’s the sort of we get. We are only ingenious to change the ending of our tale, or turn it around, when we rely upon differently of ourselves. The framework with regard to who we are ‘inside’ – the heart of our soul – is not WHAT or WHO others describe us we are – it is that which we are drawn to!
A contemptible word on Manifesting and believing –
On Friday eventide a post about ‘Day on the Green‘ at Bimbadgen Estate came over my Facebook feed. I had forgotten to fasten tickets in time (figuring they were tot~y sold out anyway) and I had positively REALLY wanted to go – I be in ~ with Simply Red, Tina Arena and Natalie Imbrulgia – the sort of a line up! I had been discourse to a friend about it forward Friday and I felt a limitation to go somehow – then suddenly it was Friday darkness and all too late… Except that sum of ~ units hours before the concert, a couple of tickets fell into my hands (a offering from the gods) – A hundred thousand thank you’s ‘E.L.M!’ And thankfully there were still tickets to purchase on the model of all!
