The Mystery and Making of Luck

Simply Sacred
I have always been fascinated by the mystery and making of luck.  Friday the 13th is the perfect day for snubbing misfortune and spinning favor!

That interest in the mystery and making of luck comes from the same place in me that wants to dress up as a Gypsy, Witch, or Faerie every year at Halloween…..from my playful, creative spirit.  It’s the same part that struggled with letting go of dress-up and make-believe so much that I pursued theatre all the way through college.  (Now I have a lifetime pass to live the play!)

along with a coordinating journaling prompt.)

Pair my love of play with my belief that we have some hand in creating this life we are living…or at least framing what we are given with an AWE-some frame….and I am left toying with the mystery and making of LUCK.

Secrets to the Mystery and Making of Luck

  • Play the part of the Lucky One.  Play is so powerful, it often leads to reality.  We play the student and often become the expert!
  • Invite Luck into your life….and then look for it to appear.  In life, we get more of what we energize.  Attention is a great way to give energy to something.  So looking for Luck to show up is the best way to discover how Lucky you really are.
  • Create a Lucky Charm!  From an artist’s perspective, that could be anything from a trinket to a painting, a little bowl with gratitude statements tucked away in it.  These kinds of objects may not magnetize Luck to you in the Hollywood magical way we think of in the movies, but consider that they are outward reminders of an inward intention. And intention drives action.

    Good Luck Essential Oil Blend

My Good Luck Essential Oil Blend is a great kind of Lucky Charm.  It reminds us with one of our most powerful senses to let Luck come our way.  And even more than that, the oils I have chosen create shifts in our mood so that we can be in the optimal space for noticing the Luck that is always around us!

 

creative living with essential oils

Add 6 drops of Wild Orange essential oil,
3 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil,
2 drops of Patchouli essential oil to a 5 or 10 ml rollerball.  
Top off with fractionated coconut oil.

 

Choosing an oil:  I use therapeutic grade essential oils that are held to rigorous testing standards. They are potent, effective, and pure. To visit about more about CreativeLiving with essential oils, contact me at rae@creativitytribe.com

How to Use the Good Luck Essential Oil Blend

This Good Luck Blend can be worn topically by placing it on your wrists (imagine yourself grabbing up gobs of Luck as you do.)  Dab a bit on the back of your neck, at the base of your skull (envision that it turns on your mind to search for the Luck in your life.)  Finally, wear it in the little soft spot where the front of your neck meets the top of your chest.  I call this my oil altar.  Anytime I want to benefit from the aromatic properties of an oil, I place it there.  It is perfectly nestled in line with my nose.

Wear Oils for aromatic benefit

One last thought about using Good Luck Essential Oil Blend.  When you wear it, you become a human diffuser.  Every time someone comes near, you are spreading the good vibes.  Every time you give a hug, you are passing on the Luck.  Have fun!

When Saying No is Saying Yes

saying No saying YES

I am back after a two week blog break.  I believe that is the longest bit I have taken from my blog since falling in love with the practice 3 years ago.  Not bad, huh?  My two weeks has been a beautiful balance of rest, relaxation, and re-creation.  I have been dreaming, processing, and stretching my wings.

To be honest, I mixed plenty of work up with my play, but with a job like mine, sometimes it is hard to tell the two apart!

Some Highlights….

I started off by heading to Austin to spend time with dear friends and take the Paint Mojo workshop with Tracy Verdugo (which I will do a post on before too long…including pictures of my painting).

Paint Mojo TracyPaint Mojo with Tracy Verdugo

 From Austin, I headed about an hour South to the Black Rose Ranch, near San Antonio, and stayed with more friends.  Being tucked away out in the country was so restorative.  My bed butted up next to a window that I kept cracked at night, letting in the fresh air and sounds of coyotes circling the house in the early morning hours.

Black Rose HorseTime in the Country

From San Antonio, I headed towards Austin again and stayed in the little town of New Braunfels with my dear friend Jessica of WildWood Naturals.  Jessica and I have been friends for nearly a decade now, and whenever we hold space together (over the phone, the net, or in person) I am somehow reminded of who I am and what makes me tick.  I had a lot to be thankful for on my trip, spent time in nature, spinning my big dreams, and reflecting on my life….but of all those moments, there was an hour or two that she and I spent talking as best friends do that made my whirlwind trip all the richer.

After all that outta town love, I headed home to get ready for another trip.  Every Wednesday I meet with a circle of visionaries who dedicate themselves to two things…the love of meditation AND the love of chocolate (unprocessed ceremonial cacao from Guatemala to be more specific).  This last weekend we met up for an epic meditation session with one of North America’s oldest trees, affectionately known as The Big Tree.  Oh, and was she a beauty.  We sat and spun lovely energy together under the stars in the light of the Moon.

Big Tree 500In Touch with Nature and Self

As I look back over the last two weeks, I wasn’t any LESS busy, but I was busy with things that were very much focused on what I need right now… deep connection with what matters.  Certainly, my blog and this community matter to me, but I am hoping to balance more time in real life with less time on-line and that will mean saying NO to things I have sometimes gotten lost in…you know, social media energy sucks, surfing for things that don’t matter, falling down the rabbit hole.

Sometimes saying NO to all that means saying YES to what matters.  What do you want to say YES to in your life?  Don’t just let that question float by.  Sit with it today.  Journal about it.  Talk to your friends, loved ones, or a stranger about it.  Saying YES to your life is how you create it.   That is the ultimate in self-care.  That is what Creativity Tribe is all about! 

Glad to be home….Glad to connect with YOU!

When Life Gets BuZZy, Make Honey

busylittlebee

Life has recently gotten super busy.  Some of the busy-ness comes from bee-ing ready for more in my life.  More ease.  I feel as if a screen with a pattern on it came down in front of me and is insisting that I fit my life into its shape in order for me to go in the direction I wish.  I could stay where I am or go some other way, but if I want what I want, I must shift into this new way.

So the new way means being better at some of the things I struggle most with.  Left brained kinda stuff.  You know, task oriented activities, organization, numbers, structure.  All those things that just aren’t the way of a supra-creative….or at least not this one…yet.

But, I can see that getting a few practices in place can lift me to a new level of existence.  There is an underlying anxiousness that buzzes just below the surface that the ordering of life tends to subdue.

And so, I am adjusting my surroundings and my procedures to help quiet the part that needs that.  I have been cleaning out file cabinets, throwing out and recycling the unwanted and unneeded bits, have set up space for my the essential oils in my studio and bedroom, am taking an ecourse (Counting Abundance) to help me fall in love with my bookkeeping.  Already, I can feel great relief.  I feel stronger, more capable, and serene.

Using Essential Oil for Organizing

One of my partners in this overhaul has been a grounding blend of essential oils.  It helps sooth my calm my mood as I work through complicated projects, helps me focus on what is important, calls me towards more balance in my life, and smells delicious!

 I hope you will head over for my free gift.  I really put lots of love and energy into, wanting it to bring creativity to your life and life to your creativity!

A beautiful symphony of self-care practices is coming together for me right now.  Looking at having surgery sometime in the not so distant future, I have been checking in with what the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies need.  So often they are intertwined.  Our physical body has aches and pains that call attention to emotional wounds which point the way to spiritual shifts.

Part of my treatment for all three (physical, emotional, spiritual) is to check in with the physical body first and allow it to point the way to the needs of the emotional, finally, letting the spiritual do the work.  For me, creativity and intuition are a huge part of my spiritual life.  They open the door to deeper awareness…inevitably offering deeper healing.  For the month of October, I will be sharing some of my Body Wisdom Cards with you for Body Wisdom Wednesday.  You may find that they tap into any of the three bodies mentioned above or into a combination of them.

Today’s cards were inspired by my interview on Become Soulfully Connected Telesummit.  The interview is up for about 24 more hours.  There is a free gift called the Creativity Booster Pack that I hope you will check out!

It was also inspired by Jon Gabriel’s 21 Day  Meditation for Weight Loss Challenge.  Now I am not one who is a proponent of diets for myself.  I really believe they have messed up more than they have helped, but Jon Gabriel’s mind-body approach to weight loss is very different and revolutionary as far as I am concerned, so I jumped at the opportunity to take part in the challenge.  And so far it is delightful and inspiring!

My Body Wisdom Cards for Today

I started working with my Body Wisdom Cards by listening to the mediation Jon Gabriel sent out today.  It was centered around the affirmation… “I radiate health and vitality, I naturally release excess weight.”

Next, I checked in with my intuition as to what essential oil I might use to support a deeper understanding of all three levels of the body.

I chose Wild Orange, a happy scent that is both uplifting and calming at the same time.

This is an image I designed for the BSC Telesummit.

Art Card Process 2

I worked on the two cards initially as one piece. The first representing a more structured idea, the second inviting in more of an organic flow.

Art Card Process 3

I eventually separated the two.  The first I embellished with matte and shimmery water colors, Prismacolors, and paint pen.  The second, I repeated some of the themes discovered in the first and began to tell a story about what is going on in my body.  The circle with flowers and a heart is the symbol I have been exploring in my journals as I explore what it means to me to have uterine cancer.  The ovaries have blossomed into flowers.  (I later realized that it also resembles an orange…perhaps a Wild Orange!)  The little snail is a recurring character in my art which I believe to represent curiosity.

Art Card Box

I chose a box I had in my studio to hold my card collection. I intend to continue working with the cards and exploring them during my 21 Day Meditation Challenge.
