It’s that time again, Autumn is fast upon us and as often happens I find myself turning inwards to discover what I need to do to move forward. For the past five years or so I haven’t been completely honest with myself, it has been easier to avoid the truth and fill the holes with other things but this year is different. There is a lot of healing that needs to take place and a lot of things that I have been pushing to one side, stifling my journey and actually pushing myself off the path laid out before me. I spent a lot of time blaming other people for the pain I was feeling rather than accept that I need to find the sources of my pain deep within myself. I feel like I am making positive steps now and that this Autumn is the time to shed those pains and allow love and light to finally come in and fill the holes.

Looking inward is never easy. You see things that you don’t want to see and have to accept the parts of you that you wish weren’t there. But they are there and they are a necessary part of you. A very defining thing happened to me when I started to hide from myself and I have been trying to heal from it the wrong ways. I’ve known what I needed to do in my heart but it was always so hard to face. I can’t keep running from it though, one way or another none of us can, those things we wish weren’t there or like to deny are our issues always come back to us one way or another.

This Autumn I will face them and allow myself to be bathed in self love because, no matter what anyone else tells me and no matter what my dark aspects have been telling me, I am worth it. I deserve to live in light, love and happiness. I deserve to know peace and follow my calling. I have to accept my shadow aspects and love them as much as my light in order to heal and grow.

Eh, it is probably more apt to ask what’s right, but I am bumbling along at some sort of pace. You may be wondering where all my art challenge responses are and why I am only posting the prompts at the moment. It’s due to me taking a small creativity break rather than stressing myself out at this time when my brain is being weird and I feel like mush most of the time and exhausted the rest. I will be doing the prompts but not just yet. I also still wanted to post the prompts as I know that a few people have been enjoying doing them.

It has been time to take my own advice and be kind to myself. Perhaps I will even get to posting something here that is not related to the challenge. I would like to do that as I feel I have lost my way a little with the sort of things I used to blog about and when I used to write them. Everything has felt like such a struggle lately but as always eventually happens I seem to be poking my head out of my pillow fort to see what is going on.

EPSON MFP imageIt has been a long time since I blogged on a more personal level but I find myself returning to it this week. First and foremost I wanted to wish all who celebrate it a Happy Imbolc, or if you would rather a Happy Candlemass.

For me this time of the year is about the change in the seasons and growing light and warmth that will bring fresh life and new growth to the earth.

The last few months have been tiring and hard. This winter has brought a lot of death and change. So many inspirational people have passed on to the other side in this last month alone, both celebrity deaths that we have all heard about and in my personal life. People who have touched my life or the lives of my children and other family members, even friends. These inspirational people are lights in our lives just as we are lights in the lives of others.

As tempting as it is to wallow in all that winter has taken away it’s important to look forward to the new growth, beauty and inspirations waiting to fill the holes we are currently left with. Whether you are pagan or not I think it’s worth remembering that spring is a time of new things coming into our lives and of taking those first baby steps forward after the long rest of winter. If you never take a step then you will always remain where you are.

During Imbolc I light the way for myself with the soft warmth and invigorating energy of fire. It nurtures and inspires, warms my soul and makes me feel good in my heart.

Enjoy the change and be grateful for the inspirational lights you have in your life both active and those gone whose lessons we remember fondly. Sometimes it is only when they are gone that we realise the true extent of all they did for us in life. They are here to teach us and help us to grow just as the sun warms the earth and encourages nature to reach it’s full potential.

…and I wanted to wish you all a very:

happy new year 2016

Last year was a strange one, it didn’t feel bad per say, not like some I have had but it was a very different year full of challenges, changes and transformations in both big and small ways from, in my case, the way I live to the way I think.

Despite the troubles and hardships I do feel like it has laid down foundations to build upon this year as several exciting new projects are in the works and my focus as an artist has become far more apparent.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy year ahead full of love, light, laughter and blessings wherever it leads you.

2013 was a pivotal year in my life for a lot of reasons. I feel like I finally made my way to a better emotional place after a very tough 2012, I started my business, developed my dreams, ambitions and goals, finalised my divorce and started a new chapter in my life. One of the things I really love about keeping a scrapbook or smashbook or something similar is how all of those memories and thoughts can be kept safe and sound.

Last week I was feeling uninspired so I decided to take a trip down memory lane and revisit a year that brought with it a lot of positivity, inspiration and all round goodness. This is what happened…
