Six Word Saturday: Volume Four

six-word-saturday-large

I invite you to play along with me every Saturday – shaping six words into phrases the enliven, enrich, inspire, encourage, delight.

My collection of six word phrases comes from playing along on Twitter during the week with the hashtag #sixwords.

The photos are my originals, usually from the week, some from my personal collection.

joyfully spinning some *New Moon Magic*

I took this photo today, right before stepping into ‘white space’ to video an interview for a video summit. White tiger is one of my totem animals, so I love that it is peeking over my shoulder!  This was a big moment for me, because it was the first summit that I didn’t personally know the interviewer (we both trusted a mutual friend for the connection). The conversation flowed and I loved it! (I will share the link when I have it).

quivering, in delight and fear, simultaneously

The kids and I painted together for the first time in a few years (we had a traumatic experience a few years ago, in a guided abstract painting class and hadn’t painted together since).  We are taking a three-series online intuitive painting class (complimentary to subscribers via Chris Zydel at Creative Juices Arts).  Lesson one was to make a mess – so I did. I titled this photo “Happy Hands – Happy Heart”.

a beautiful unfolding …. peace, grace, possibility

This photo was right at sunset – I love the clouds over the hills; I guarantee most every one else was looking a bit to the left, where sun was setting over the ocean! But, this feeling of clouds, hills and blue sky lights my heart – an affirmation and visual inspiration to continue walking this heart path.

love answers each invocation of heart

To get this car registration sticker – which just happened Wednesday – was a life-changing, heart-opening journey. What felt absolutely impossible became my reality. My heart is overflowing with love and gratitude!  I feel blessed and also inspired to continue creating and connecting from heart space.  It truly took a village to make this happen – an experience that will stay with me always!

a new day to celebrate with joy

The day after we received the car registration sticker, the kids and I took a mini road trip. There is nothing that lights my heart as much as car karaoke with the kids along the PCH (the ‘famed” winding road, between mountains and the ocean – pure beauty). It is impossible to forget who you are and what you are made of, when presented with such a majestic reflection (and laughter is the best heart medicine).

love naturally disentangles knots of shame

This is a simple photo of my golden Himalayan quartz and a feather I found at the beach. I use practices of energy movement and presence to open my heart space and center into potent, powerful, healing energies of love and gratitude. To me, shame is simply a space where I have internalized external judgment – to release the energy, I say ‘return to sender, with love’ as I invite the critical thought to return to where it came.

No words – just more love and gratitude!

Each moment is a reset button

I pulled this photo affirmation from the Facets archives. It’s one of my favorites; something I centered into this week as I found myself in newness each day.

  1. Six word Saturday

    Sunny day for road trip – adventure

  2. First time leaving son – growing pains

    Space allows growth and freedom – transitions

    • Yes, it sure does – *and* transitions may be full of delight and joy when we allow them to be. Love to you and your family, Tanya!

    “After restriction, gold is so freeing!”

    ” Today’s drawings were such joyful magic!”

    ” I give thanks for my studio! ”

    ” Studio is clean—–house is not :) ”

    So, better late than never, huh, Joy :)

    • I love “studio is clean – house is not” because I have the same situation (except our ‘studio’ is our house – *grin* we spread our paintings and supplies around the living room, so we are all together working/creating/being this evening in one bedroom, enjoying clean space while our paintings dry!).

      I am so glad you had such a wonderful creative session today, Jean!

    I love that you guys are painting, Joy <3

    • Thank you, Jean! It’s fun to explore together – while we are a lot alike in world, we each have different painting styles so it’s interesting to compare our canvases.

  5. Four Directions – Four Seasons

    Open illumination door to the east.

    Rule summer guest of sun’s flame.

    Close introspective door to the south.

    Through fall test full moon’s trust.

    Close wisdom’s door to the north.

    Blue winter rest day stars claim.

    Open innocence door to the south.

    True spring zest lives earth’s lust.
