What nourishes you from your inspiration?
What ever nourishes and inspires you fully can be the starting point for Living your Life from the effortless Flow of Being, from the Inside out.
~Cass Phelps

Did you know that if you follow what inspires you, you will become more of you essentially are, your authentic self, stripped down to the core to your eternal being?  I love this!  Yes!  What if your daily practice was to simply follow your inspiration?  Similar to following your bliss, look inside and outside to  what inspires you, take a breath inhale and exhale deeply, inhaling spirit, in-spir-ation…  Observe what in-spirits you, gives you energy, makes your heart sing with joy, gives you goose bumps, gets you excited, discover and follow that.  Touch it and follow it like a butterfly….

Experiment with this focus and see where your inspirations lead you and what expressions, creations and visions emerge out of this process.  Trust your inspirations and take note, mark your musings and new awareness throughout~ whether in writing, sound, video, photos, drawings, or all, it’s your choice.  The exciting bit is that you will discover magic and brilliance within and without… You’ll feel satisfied, experience more causeless joy and pleasure!  And, our world will benefit through the sharing of your inspirations through your new manifestations in the material realm!  Play with this and see where the bread crumbs take you…  I wish you all love, light and blessings on your quest and path of exploration!

I look forward to your comments and questions … would love to hear from you via this blog, FB, or email lorien@lorieneck.com.

In love, gratitude, and beauty,

 Self- love is the source of all our other loves.~ Pierre Corneille 

Dear Beloved Community,

As I write this my heart is filled with love for the beautiful gifts of friendship, community, laughter, and the beauty that is found both in nature and co-created with our hearts/hands.  Love in general and specifically self-love, has been a current theme for me.  I found this question to be very interesting and inspiring:  “What does it look like or mean to love ourselves?”  Yes, of course, a daily spiritual practice, some pampering (or plenty of pampering!), eating well, exercising, deep breathing, plenty of pure drinking water, green drinks, yoga, etc etc etc.  These are all excellent and vibrant expressions of self-love that I love! Yet, let’s look a little deeper into the question posed above as a form of self-inquiry.  I invite you to create a quiet space and explore these questions, inspired by Judy Satori and Mother Mary.

•What is that my heart desires?  Tune into your heart and ask How do I desire to Be?

•What are my soul’s true qualities?

•How can these soul qualities be expressed in my day-to-day life?

•What modifications do I require to make in my day-to-day life to be in more alignment with the true nature of our being?

I invite you to explore these questions and to see what kind of energy changes or ways of Being emerge for you.  I am practicing this self-inquiry now right along with you…  Take your time, take a few days, a week, or longer…  Relax and lean into this blossoming of you.

I look forward to your comments and questions … would love to hear from you via this blog, FB, or email lorien@lorieneck.com.

In love, gratitude, and Unity Consciousness,

It appears that this Full Moon is an initiation of sorts. Through experiencing its energies, we have opportunities to come into even greater alignment with our spiritual path, given a willingness to learn and perfect the steps along the way — our cosmic “dancing lesson”.

 “The end of the world for a caterpillar is a butterfly.”

~ Anthony De Mello

Greetings of peace, beauty, and love in this most auspicious holiday season!  As we approach the Winter Solstice and end of the year transition into 2013, we are facing immense opportunity for personal change, personal evolution, and personal choice.  There are plenty of cosmic energies swirling around now moving into these last two weeks and through the next few months of 2013.  I encourage you to stay focused, calm, centered, and grounded in your center, in your essence.  And, connect to the Mother Earth frequently through any means possible.  There are many practical steps that you can take, (that I am also taking), listed within the Health Checklist resource below.  To contribute in a positive way to the evolving collective consciousness, let’s continue to do our inner work, and our world will reflect our positive energy.  These times are truly about peace, love, union, light, and grace… Call these qualities into yourself now and radiate these powerful qualities outward from your heart…

One exercise that I am experiencing as beneficial during this ripe window of transformation is as follows:

Using your journal, write down the questions and reflect.  What is that that you wish to change in your life now?  What are your true heart’s desires?  What are your dreams for your life?  (dream BIG!) I urge you to write your responses down clearly and in block letters and to read the list daily, first thing in the AM and last thing in the PM before sleep.  Keep up this ritual of reading your list and really feel the feeling of living your dreams fulfilled now.  Do this practice until your dreams (each one) has actualized.  Stay flexible, open, alert, and creative! Have fun!

I am currently experimenting with this practice and finding it to be fun and supportive in my visioning and daily agenda priorities as well.  The idea is to capture the Big Picture and then, meditate on inspired actions that can be taken, as well as strategies to create the desired reality that you wish.  Invoke your “attitude of gratitude” in your heart chakra and infuse your dreams and heart’s desires with love, light, and silence.  It’s vital to hold your dreams and visions in an incubator, similar to the mother’s womb.  When it is “time” to birth and share with the world… you’ll know.  Happy Dreaming from your state of Your Dreams Already Fulfilled.  You can be, do, and have all that you divinely desire…  I vote your permanent victory in the light!

Until 2013…

Greetings!

©LE Art & Design

My topic for this blog is taking risks, leaps of faith and the concept of attachments.  That’s a lot, right?  Well, I am simply going to touch on these rich focus areas.  I have been ruminating, meditating upon, and moving towards some big changes in my life as of late.  It’s an exciting time to be alive and although I am eternally grateful for the life that I am living now, I see paths ahead that require that I take some key risks and and require that I take a leap!

My daily aim and objective is to achieve not only a degree of clarity about these decisions, changes, and “power moves”, but to also feel a deeper sense of peace and acceptance as I move forward in a specific direction.  This has not been so easy, but I have been getting lots of support and help along the way.  For instance, just today, a friend sent me a little I-ching or sound bite today that said, “Go out on a limb, that’s where the fruit is” and well quite frankly, I feel that this is probably true.  If one truly wants to experience the satisfaction that comes from fulfillment, then, some sort of risk must be taken “out of the comfort zone”.

What also is coming up during this shift for me, is a re-e-valu-ation of my personal attachments.  It is so interesting to me how much actual stuff accumulates, the amount of “things” that form around a person, and how the subtle strings of attachment bind us to get stuck in it all.  Attachments to people, well that is a whole other story!  That is in process too….I am finding my attachments are one of the toughest terrains to navigate at the moment, but will stay determined so that I can reach my goals, stay true, and follow the guidance of my higher self.

So, as I venture ahead, I leave you with these words from Anthony De Mello:

“The moment you pick u pan attachment, the functioning of this lovely apparatus called the human heart is destroyed.”  He says, “You must choose between your attachment and happiness.  You cannot have both.  The moment you pick up an attachment, your heart is thrown off kilter and your ability to lead a joyful carefree life is destroyed.”

The Spring Equinox  officially rolls on March 19th @ 10:14 PM PST & on March 20th @ 1:14 AM EST & 5:14 AM GMT/UT.  Does this fact, this transition of the “outer” season/cycle affect your “inner” world’s season/cycle?

For myself, although I live (and have mostly lived) in a predominantly season-less place, Southern California, I do feel the outer shift in my inner world.  How?  I feel excited about all of the newness that is about to sprout up from seed thoughts and actions planted deep in the three-month span of a snow-less winter.  I feel a surge of fresh energy, like fresh oxygen from a deep breath of pure ocean air in my day.  I do feel a subtle, but very powerful infusion of vital life force energy coming up from the earth and moving through the ethers….

It is a very exciting and “all things are possible” time on planet Earth.  Dream Big, plant the seeds, water, sun, love, belief, trust, and let us all remember to breathe deeply as we move into this next season.

As for my creative projects and creations… lots going on and to be revealed soon at:

February 2012. Year of the Water Dragon.  Valentine’s day coming up. I offer this thought and inquiry, “what if Valentine’s day was everyday?” What if YOU were always your first Valentine and your significant others and/or humanity closely near the top?  Love is….

What a year it has been so far for me, lots of love…. After a quick start of 3 concurrent art show openings and exhibits, blogs posts,  art receptions, art creating, and lots of new connections, I am taking a long, deep breath to absorb it all in. It’s now time to settle in and allow the new experiences to integrate.  Settling into the love from my larger community and all of those supporting my art work as it is launched into the world.

Self love and love for humanity is on my mind and in my heart.  How do I continually bring this LOVE, for self and others, into my day to day experiences and interactions? How do WE continually bring this LOVE, for self and others, into our day to day experiences and interactions? How do YOU continually bring this LOVE, for self and others, into your day to day experiences and interactions?

So, I leave these questions with you and will be back in March with more musings on life and love.

Thank you for reading and I invite you to share your contributions via comments and connections and would love to hear from you via this blog, my face book page, or email lorien@lorieneck.com.
