Our Lady of Everything By Shiloh Sophia McCloud
Our Lady of Abundant Blessings
Open our hearts to Thy bountiful wisdom
You who bridge the created and uncreated worlds
You who bring spirit into form so beautifully
Move us through our many thought forms that bind
Every day I am struck with our amazing ability to choose to be present to and in our lives, or not. I am amazed that we have so much choice in how our lives actually go – though I know there is plenty of “random” as well.
Last night at Cosmic Cowgirls, Sue Hoya and I had the incredible privilege of leading a creativity circle for a group of women friends, one of whom is on a cancer journey and may be in the last few months of her life. We made hand painted mobiles and crowns that each woman present contributed to through a prayer on a hand-painted heart for her friend. So at the end, each woman’s project had something from each of the other women – the hearts were tied on with red threads from our opening circle. And of course, add glitter. The wonderful woman whom we were celebrating and who was surrounded by the love of her girlfriends gave us some special teachings – one of which is: This is the day. She mentioned that the line in that gospel song, This is the day that the Lord has made inspired that thought…and she shared it with us. A gift.
My ideas are worth exploring
and my creative acts are sacred, worthwhile and valuable.
I answer the call to create
without feeling I am taking away from something or someone.
I know that I have something unique to say and create,
that is only mine to express and so it is original.
ave you had the experience of the very AIR around you changing, seeming different- both in moments of bliss and pain? Times of miracles and grieving and transformations are moments when the air seems to me compressed and released and anointed with sparkle from On High. I have often wondered, since pain and miracles seem like something we can neither call on nor predict, but can certainly expect to show up -though with no idea when… is there a way to cause or call on the Sparkle from On High as needed? The answer of course is no and yes. Sparkle from on High is grace in its many sorted forms.
You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . .
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your communities
A Word from the Art Doctor… sharing a practice for clearing old perceptions and claiming some new ones. A remedy from the Art Doctor, in the event you have not yet REALLY taken a day or two to examine your thoughts and beliefs lately, is to take one whole day for Visionary Shifting. Make sure…
Mama’s Chicken Crock Autumn Stew
should take half hour depending on how many arms you use…then cook for 4 hours.
eat next day or start it in the morning. (substitute wine for coffee then)
should cost under $20 depending on how much veggie and chicken you use…also I don’t really deal much with quantities and so – wing it!
The entire experience, Shiloh, has opened my heart to so much more than the art! You have created such a platform for all introspection and healing on untold levels yet to emerge. During your mentorship with all that you have provided for us from awesome instruction, thoughtful writing prompts and copious hand-holding and love-spreading along the trail these six months, I have grown into a WORTHY WOMAN. This may seem like a casual statement, but it is anything but! I spent my entire 63 years hiding my light and after six months with you and our bevy of loving Cowgirls on the incredible Caravan, I am emerging invincibly into a poet, writer, and artist! Thank you for your vision–and even more, acting on your Divine Visionary call! – Janet Landess
