For the month of January, the theme of this site is an exploration of the energy of home.
Home as a sacred container in which we feel comfortable resting, creating, connecting, experimenting, celebrating.
Home as a physical body that transports us throughout our day, host to our heart, mind and soul.
Home as Mother Earth…as Universe...this place where we live.
Home as a heart experience not specific to a physical location….a feeling of comfort, safety, security, bliss.
As we feel into this energy together, you may find yourself quite comfortable with the exploration, you may find yourself at an edge. It is my request that you share from the space that you are in with an understanding that your perspective and experience enriches the quality and feel of this exploration, for all whom read and walk these energetic steps together.
Today, I am delighted to share this Facets space with Sandi Davis, CPCC!
I don’t make my bed everyday.
Dishes often pile up in the sink.
My favorite mixing bowl belonged to my husband’s grandmother and is chipped.
My windows need cleaning and my silverware doesn’t match.
If you come visit there will probably be rooms that are off limits because I have stashed my day to day messes behind their doors.
But I will have baked you bread that will have risen in my favorite mixing bowl. I will brew you a good cup of loose leaf tea in which you will use a mismatched silver spoon to stir in sugar.
Then we will settle in and talk for hours about life and love, dreams and visions, beauty and pleasure, secret wishes and magic.
Your soul will be touched for having visited. Mine expanded for having shared space with you.
Perfection is not my home. Comfort that evokes life’s truths is.
I stopped shaming myself into trying to be the perfect housekeeper, started trusting my desire for comfort, then the place I lived became home. Once at home I could relax into who I am.
My home is imperfect, often messy, with chips, scratches, and worn places from loving use. While I fantasize about living in magazine style perfection, I am nourished by the imperfect beauty in my home as it is. It holds the imperfect beauty of me.
Someday I may master the art of housekeeping. I may have perfectly organized closets and not have messes to hide behind closed doors. But that is not today. Today I trust comfort to lead me home and home to give me courage to find truth- mine and yours.
Imperfect and beautiful, chips and all.

Thank you for sharing, Sandi!
As I read Sandi’s words, I think of how “imperfect” my home is if one looks into it – stacks of books to read and lots of magazines and cut-out images for vision boards and candles and stones and trinkets…but, our home is one that others love to visit and return to because it is full of love, laughter and peace. We have an open door (literally and energetically) along with a boundary that says *only love enters and leaves*. In that sense, then, it is quite *perfect*, indeed.
May you share, what energies fill your home? What energies would you like to fill your home? And, what is one of your favorite material possessions within your home?
Thank you for your presence!
Much peace and abundant love,
I love sharing, and learning about, presence through photography; while mind is engaged in framing specific shots to fit a theme, heart naturally opens to explore and celebrate. The January session of I Believe in Magic: 30-day Photo Journey has a theme of exploring the energy of home and begins January 12th – registration is now open.
