I Heart You...

to all of you who have stood with me in this time of transition...i heart you...I offer a piece of my heart to you...for you have stamped a piece of your heart into mine...

i am sorting through everything this next month in readiness for my estate sale...the next 10 days are in the studio...clearing/organizing/detaching...it can be fun clearing away the fluff of your life...and it really is all fluff...I am taking one difficult step each day...and i am throwing in some creative time...walking on the beach every morning watching the sunrise over the ocean...returning to meditate each evening...

i am working on my second mermaid portrait...she is progressing nicely...i will have photos soon...

a friend reminded me that God never gives you more than you can handle...well, i am about to that point...but i BeLieVe, with my whole being, that this ego crushing process is necessary for me to grow into consciousness...being present every minute...weepy moments are less frequent...although acceptance is distant...i am able to stand in my emotions without being my emotions...that is progress indeed... 


the middle is not always the end...the journey continues...

Hang in there! And think of how great you'll feel when you sell all the "fluff". You'll have new "green" in your hand, instead! I wish for you lots of estate sale visitors with fat wallets! :)

If you have time, read "A new earth" of Eckhart Tolle, I think it is something for you!

I have a special place in my heart for mermaids...and for those who paint/draw them. You are a true artist. I can't wait to see those photos.

Life sure hands us some challenging moments.. but that is how we grow. The bigger the challenge the better the reward is how I look at it:-)
I just cleared out a corner of our living room - and it definitely changed the energy!!! (I did it in the health section -Feng shui)
I am sure there are some great blessings in store for you. Keep visualizing the big picture with you and your loved one's grinning from ear to ear. Arms open wide inviting all the love into your beautiful heart.
Art Heals! So does Love..
sending love and light.

Going to the beach to meditate, that sounds so calming and beautiful. I try to meditate each day but I forget and feel bad. It's so difficult to give it time and forgive one self when not doing it!

I think it's great that you've found your strength again, I hope you feel better and enjoy the momens! *hugs*

Hi Rebecca-
Yes, it sounds like you have a lot of changes ahead of you. Good luck in clearing out and packing, I know EXACTLY what you are going through.
I never got a copy of the stenciling article that my dolls were in. I would love to see it if you have a chance, you could email it to me or mail it-

I can totally relate! My ego is freaking out with same nagging script in my head.."your going to be 53yr old your all alone...whos going to bury you etc"...is this normal"

Sending you lots of hugs and good wishes for many, many, many better days ahead! I always believe when a door is closed, a window opens - and so far, every time that window has been an improvement over what was behind the door. Much love to you, Rebecca. xoxox

Gosh Rebecca, You really have been through the mincer. I had no idea. I'm glad I stopped by today a virtual hug is on it's way. I was so excited when I read about your new job then realised I was reading your story in reverse and the new job is the one that you just left. Duh. I hope that there is sunshine and colour around the corner for you.
