BEING REMINDED OF WHAT IS SACRED TO EACH OF US: UNDERSTANDING THAT SOMETIMES THAT TAKES A lot of WORK!
Sacred Reminders, LLC is something that I could never have imagined 7 years ago, or even ever. Somehow it all fits and makes sense in my life at this moment. It took a tremendous amount of effort, of letting go, a challenge in faith, love from my family, and a lot of tools along the way. Even still, I am still working on staying connected to what is Sacred and reminding myself that all I ever needed is all that I have at this very moment and always will be that way. Sometimes, that still takes a lot of hard work.
Take this spiral, for instance, that my children and I made with the leaves of our wonderful Arizona Sycamore Tree. It began as a math lesson to collect all the leaves from smallest to biggest, and so they did. Their attention span was full and so they played and I took the leaves to create this spiral, my favorite formation. It gave me such joy to be able to use something from Nature and create art. Even taking a simple picture of this was really mind-blowing to me at that time as I did not have much confidence in my ability to create beautiful things, other than using my words and giving birth to wonderful lives.
Now, as I have now looked at this spiral over and over again, it has so much more meaning for me. From those tiny leaves from the center, to the growth of the spiral, to the biggest leaves outward, this is how I now see myself in my expansion of getting to know myself, the expansion in what I believe in, and letting go of the things that do not serve my purpose in life.
Just like the Arizona Sycamore, she sheds her bark more and more each day to reveal this beautifully smooth bark in order to grow stronger and longer, so must I shed a lot of whatever it is I have been holding on to. Little by little, I have shed a lot, picked up some more, and am trying to shed that too. What I have been so reminded each time is that it takes work every day and every moment, but it is worth it.
The purpose of this blog is to share the tools that have worked for me that have helped and keep on helping me remind myself of getting back to what is important and Sacred to me. These tools may help you get you back to what is Sacred to you, or help you even be able to have a moment to breathe, which in this life, is a luxury in itself.
I am not here to tell you how perfect my life is because it is wonderfully and lovingly imperfect, as it should be. There are tremendous challenges and unknowns in any given day. What gives me joy is helping others not have to reinvent the whee. Because a wheel that works will most likely come out round anyway. In my way of building that wheel, the hope is to lighten your load a little, even for a moment.
