Thoughts and a Symbala for the New Year!

January 1st, 2018

Evolving Beingness

Today is the first day of 2018, a good time to take stock of the year’s journey and put forth desires for expanding our evolutionary path.  A large factor in my artist’s path has been to listen and trust the inner/cosmic guidance I receive as energy and nudges that I translate into the Symbala forms.  Sometimes these nudges are a wake-up call for me and not about the art.  Sometimes they are not at all subtle.

Here’s a nudge I got right before the New Year and shows how some of us need firm guidance to pay attention and shift some stuckness!  I made a day trip to see friends for a holiday visit which included going out to lunch.  When we got back to the house, I was sauntering up the straight, flat walkway talking with one of the friends slightly behind me.  The next thing I knew, I was in a slow-motion movie starring me doing an inexplicable pratt-fall.  Arms flailing, gravity grabbed me and flung me off the walk and onto the grass, landing flat on my back with arms flung wide like a snow angel, without the snow!  I was stunned and flabbergasted and then, I started laughing – couldn’t stop.  When they finally got me on my feet and into the house, I checked to be sure everything was where it was supposed to be and then we sat around talking.  They talked, I was thinking… what had I been talking about when this cosmic joke took place?  The friend had asked me how much my newest Symbala project would cost when it was finished, so he could buy it.  I hadn’t given him a price because I didn’t know what it would be yet.  I threw some cost figures at him and had just said before the fall, ‘and tack on $5 for my efforts’!  Wham!!  I was sort of joking, but, once again my old pattern of not valuing myself and what I do was in there.  Wow!  I got the message (symbolically) loud and clear this time.  If you don’t value yourself, you fall flat; thanks, my unseen friends.

So as you ponder your desires for the New Year, remembering to value yourself is top of the list or life won’t sparkle like champagne, it will be flat like yesterday’s soda.

For more inspiration here is a Symbala to contemplate what miracles we each are and some words of wisdom from Abraham.

‘Ask, and it is given’ means that whether you are a full blossoming genius human, or whether you are the one-celled amoeba in the ocean, or a cell in one of your bodies, when it is concluded that something else is preferred (no matter how developed the consciousness is) every time a preference is noted, Nonphysical Energy rushes forth to answer it. It is the promise of our evolving beingness.”  ~ Abraham

With bright good wishes, Happy New Year!   Don’t forget to visit my Zazzle Store where you will find Evolving Beingness gracing many products.

Deck the Halls

‘Tis the season for giving, fun, food and don’t forget the decorations. When you deck your halls, try adding some sacred geometry sparkle, like with Symbala cards, tree ornaments or wrapping paper found in my Zazzle Store. The high vibes are a true accompaniment to the festive spirit of the season!

Wishing a holiday season of love, peace and great joy to you all!

Acts of Kindness

I meant to put this up for the First of October, but things happen and I’m glad to present this at last.


I have often met the month of September with a subtext of melancholy; perhaps childhood memories of summer ending and going back to school. Perhaps it’s the Virgo aura:

“The Virgin’s Mysteries culminate in a purified and honorable relationship between life and death. As such, this season can be emotionally and spiritually challenging for those who shy away from this necessity.” ~ Aeolian Heart

This September seems spectacularly intent on upheavals, changes and endings. The summer wound down for me in a pall of smoke and ash; I have experienced a death in my extended family and, once again, I will be moving at the end of the month. I have also seen these challenges reflected in almost every one of my closest friends and family. When it feels like you’re beset with chaos coming from many directions, what gives you the ability to find balance, peace and happiness?

Have you noticed how nature’s fury levels the playing field? The NOW of it all keeps the focus on life, both human and animal, and not what is the skin color, creed or species. It pulls us together and inspires us to appreciate the value of all life. This can be a stability we find in chaos and we see it expressed in uncounted acts of heroism and the power of simple kindness.

I find peace and happiness in my world daily by focusing my lens on the many small kindnesses given and received that may go unacknowledged, but not unnoticed. Here is the Symbala offering inspired by this love and valuing of all life. It’s powerful; it’s simple and it’s full of love, enjoy!

Many Symbala products are elevated by ‘Acts of Kindness’ (card, poster, magnet and medallion, etc.) in my Zazzle Store.  Don’t forget to check out the 8th Edition of the yearly Symbala Calendar, too.  The holidays are approaching rapidly.

Featured Symbala of the Month, October 2017

October 11th, 2017


You may have noticed that the ‘Featured Symbala’ is a bit late this month.  I moved on the 2nd of this month and am still involved in the ‘Re-aligning’ process that always comes with a move, especially if it’s to another city, as well.  Challenges emerged immediately, not unusual for such a big undertaking; but I did not expect that the major one would be not having any internet connection for 11 days!  Now residing in Everett, WA, I have had a week and a half to do most of the physical re-aligning and the extra time gave me space to adjust my perspective and patience about the non-connectivity situation.  I may not have been on the internet, but I am still connected to the creative flow and have used the time for a great flurry of drawing new Symbalas and much editing, too.  The first new Symbala you see here; inspired by and devoted to the process it is named after.

Using a 10 base for the geometry reminded me that I was moving to a new level of alignment, as well.  Tens reduce to a one, but they are also about the double five.  So I am actively participating in the magic and chaos of being human in the physical dimension, and how!  At the same time I am adjusting to a new energy awareness as I sit on the balcony overlooking a beautiful and peaceful Beverly Lake with my new apartment-mate, Tina.

In addition, I am joining the smart phone world, too, all very new to me and with a huge learning curve.  Patience is all, sigh.  But I love the new connectivity as I venture, fumble-fingered, into the previously avoided experience of ‘texting’, acronyms and all (my inner English teacher is shuddering).

This move has called for great simplification of my life in many material ways because of less space, but letting go of things and past memory hooks and patterns is an excellent idea and long overdue!  On the third floor, I look out my window above my computer to see fluffly white clouds and very tall evergreen trees.  I feel so much lighter!
