Today’s blessing is for the Numinous ones who create.
May you have the courage to understand the truth of creativity. May you define that for yourself and may you be faithful to your creative desire.
May you feel the holiness of creativity and may you glimpse the way creativity engages in the sacred work; making beautiful and unique expressions that will never be made before or again.
May you be faithful to imperfection. May you allow yourself to be alive rather than right. May you witness your own growth in the face of mistakes. May you revel in the humanness of not being constrained by rules.
May you make for your own heart.
May you be more of a maker than a producer.
May you be discerning about your own makings; for a time at least, allowing them to be witnessed by love supports flourishing.
May you have people who can be supportive in your growth and may you have impeccable boundaries.
May you understand your own generosity in making and creating.
May you court creativity like a lover and may it flourish in your care.

The plans we have for our lives might be radically different than the plans God has set for us. Do we trust Him? We must remind ourselves that God knows more... His plans for us are better!

Today's blessing is for the Numinous ones who are having a hard time.
May you, in the face of hardness, amplify the soft.
May you find all the possible ways to relieve yourself of the sense that shaming yourself, driving yourself, harassing yourself or belittling yourself will work. May you see that modern western culture uses these techniques to make us value production but the heart knows that this is not the way.
May you listen to the heart.
May you honour the quietest whispers of longing and need.
May you be a safe container for your own feelings, whatever they are.
May you recognise that no feeling is more worthy or valid than another.
May you honour the role body plays in this; as Dr Estés says, The faithful companion". May you give body what it needs to sustain you through this time.
May you have the tenacity to stay with your feelings, generously inviting them to tell you the truth; this is what it takes to come into alignment.
May you see the way the most uncomfortable feelings are calling you into your own truth.
May you have compassion for the hurt and grief when you witness the ways you have abdicated and devolved your power and goodness.
May you avoid the urge to gloss over or bypass the hard.
May you have support; other people, your land, your lineage, creativity, a spiritual practice etc. to navigate this.
May you witness the way tending to the hard stuff is like shedding another layer of skin that had to grow over your heart to protect itself from a world and culture that can be pretty bloody unkind. The skin-shedding time is uncomfortable and you suffer, but it is leading you close to The Truth at the core of you; that you come from Love and that Love is your true nature.
May you witness the injury and love yourself without condition just as you are; in all your flawed beauty.
May you trust yourself deeply and come to, with each dark time, a more loving communion with yourself and The Holy gift of being human.
