I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.

Trusting the Within

Kelly Clark

"No great artist ever sees things as they really are.  If [she] did, [she] would cease to be an artist." - Oscar Wilde 

Let's talk a bit about WHY we're working with intuition, shall we?

To recap and expand a bit:

- Your intuition is valid and trustworthy.  So much of intuition is listening for that still small voice inside and trusting that it will lead you ever closer to you.   And the more we quiet the busyness of the external world and listen in, the easier it gets.  Join me here and now, and say it out loud (I mean it, don't cheat and mutter the words under your breath!):  "My intuition is valid.  My ideas are great.  I trust the work of my hands and I know that it is TRUE."

- Source is endless.  There is never, ever a limit to the ideas and inspirations that exist, and the more we tap in, the more there is to receive.  Because of this, all that old business of someone else has done it, that's someone else's territory really falls off.  The whole world stands before you with limitless possibility - and how GREAT does that feel?  

Prepping for Week 2's second Home[play]: 

- Start physically gathering up those bits and pieces that you are interested in, those things that something inside says "hey, pick that up!"  I love to gather bits of nature because I find that the lines, shapes, colors and forms the earth creates are endlessly fascinating, but know that anything you gather is the right thing to gather.  As you walk around and examine your surrounds, just remember to keep checking in, allowing your feet to wander, remembering there is no need for judgement or reason in this exercise, and pick up what feels good.  Have your collection ready for Friday when we'll really start playing with them!

Be well my sisters!
