After being in Boston last week I sooooooo needed this 3-day weekend. So the timing was perfect. And I'm taking advantage of every single minute of the 3 days to prepare for an extremely busy autumn.
I don't know what it is exactly, but there's something about September that always makes me feel like I'm getting a fresh start. And that feeling seems to be magnified this year. 2013 has been such an odd year in many ways that I'm welcoming any indications of a fresh start with open arms. No matter what I've done this year, I've felt so scattered, unsettled, and disconnected. There have been far too many false starts but I've accepted the fact that they were necessary in order to find the right path. And I know without a doubt that I've finally found my path. I know I've said that before but this time feels different. I can see how all of the pieces fit together now and in the past there were always disconnects and unknowns. Effortlessness and clarity can be such a gift from the Universe when they finally come. And sometimes it's as simple as just getting out of my own way.
And clarity arrived just in time because starting today I've transitioned out of Christine Kane's Gold Mastermind program and into her Platinum Mastermind program. This was a very scary step for me for a number of reasons but I'm facing my fears and taking the leap.
There's been a huge focus this year on building and integrating a spiritual practice in my daily life. And I've realized lately that for me, weaving is a form of meditation. This has brought an interesting new focus to the time I spend in my studio. My new work is starting to reflect this shift and the new direction feels really empowering.
