What do you wish to invite in?

On Sunday I participated in Jamie Ridler’s  Soul Reflections workshop. I was ruminating on what I wanted to invite into my soul. This was Jamie’s question last Wishcasting Wednesday.

When I created my soul reflections board, I wondered: ‘Did I think about it too much – trying to invite into my soul what I ‘thought’ I wanted? Did I try to add too much to one board?’ It doesn’t really look like any of the other collages I’ve seen through full moon dreamboards – or on Jamie’s site…maybe I did it ‘wrong’.

Today while listening to Creative Living with Jamie – her interview with Brene Brown – I fully realized it cannot be wrong. It is not like anyone else’s board – because it is the expression of my creativity. As Brene said – it doesn’t serve my creativity to compare my board to others.

I am still new at these collages, so I don’t doubt that my board is a bit over thought. But the nice thing is – soul reflections is a process and not something to check off my list. My board is now hanging in my studio for me to reflect on whenever I wish. And Soul Reflections and Jamie’s nurturing voice is at the ready whenever I wish to repeat this process.
Reflecting on what I wish to invite in – I know it includes the confident, vibrant, outdoorsy – active, happy, and successful gals in the collage. I want that confidence, success and happiness for myself. When I feel this way – this is when I have the most to offer to others. (There is a lot more going on in the board that I’m still reflecting on…more on this another time perhaps).

I wish to invite in more nurturing friendships with women and girls.

My outdoor play is part of  my creative life, and although I have wanted to nurture the art part of my creativity it has always been easier for me to go outside and play than it has been to show-up at the page with my art. I wish to invite in a balance of art and active.

When I truly believe I am worthy of love – and love myself with all my heart, my voice will sing to the world. And all the other things I wish to invite in will fall into place naturally. I wish to invite in MY voice – in all its forms!
