Everyone has their own information.
Most of us just don’t know how to access it consistently. What would be different in our lives and in our world if loving people could bring their visions forward? We have to start somewhere. How about an inquiry into consciousness…
What is it and how do we get there? My new course explores these ideas of human being…through intuitive, intentional, intellectual deep dive…
Greetings on this FULL MOON Eclipse!
Here’s an inquiry for us on this potent day…
Have we allowed our consciousness to be unconsciously shaped? Have you stepped in yet to become a co-curator?
For most of us there is a point before and after this CHOICE to be at cause for our own experience. The choice point of saying yes to inhabiting our body, mind and heart HAS to be consciously chosen, or it doesn’t happen. Often we are sparked to change it when we meet conflict in our default settings. Those settings were MOSTLY informed by outside influences.
Our inside self is mostly reacting to what happened and then makes up stories about it. Most of which aren’t true. One of the big challenges is when we outgrow those settings and are often confused to find ourselves in a certain place in our lives. “How did I get here?”
The inside self is more than just ‘going within’. When we haven’t been communicating with ourselves, or if we have, we hear mostly the critic. At this point some excavation may be needed to see who truly ‘lives in here’.
Here’s the riddle to why even our greatest efforts to change our story don’t work. Transformation does not happen in the mind alone. Story happened “out in the world” and “inside of ourselves” simultaneously – so trying to change without employing both the world and the inside self doesn’t have the impact it could. The inside or hidden self, what some might call the soul, has information for us. We can’t just ‘think’ it up, we have to live it into reality. Transformation is an experience, not a concept. Each of us is a living codex. Most of us don’t write it down or draw it out but if we did we would be surprised what gets revealed.
This is an invitation to gather for 13 moons, diving deeply into creativity and consciousness.
The idea and inspiration behind this course is in this video, which explains why I am doing this. I am going to give the material it has taken 25 years to decode and on behalf of the community waking up and creating personal resiliency for the times ahead. In this sharing, you are invited to create and design your own codex in living color…YOUR information.
Thank you dear one for being on my mailing list. For reading about my work. For caring. For exploring with me. And many of you for studying with me.
As I sit here with my kitties, sipping my cup of coffee, my heart overflows with gratitude for the chance to share this. This course is dedicated to my teacher, Sue Hoya Sellars. She is the one who taught me to make a shape with pen or brush and ask, what goes in here and who lives in here? Who taught me to include image and text and while drawing and painting to inquire into consciousness – showing me that WHILE engaged in the creative act the mind works differently. There is so much gorgeous potency here. I am in awe on a daily basis.
On this FULL MOON eclipse there is an energy of renewal and new beginnings. Will you choose to let go of what has bound you and step into a new space? I know I am ready. Lately, anything unresolved in my past has been just surfacing, in dreams, in thoughts. My former partner asking for a drink of water in a dream. With a friend, a place where I have not asked for forgiveness. With my mom, Caron, making sure she knows how much influence she has had on me, since I talk so much about Sue – so I did a teaching on her material about context and sent it to her. Things like that.
Today is a new beginning for me in so many ways…I look forward to telling you more about it soon. For today, here is CODEX. It may be my magnum opus, I won’t know until I create it. But it is my life work so far summed up in 22 tidy teachings. Or maybe they will be messy teachings. We shall see…
Answering a few questions
For those of you who did IMAGINE, this is IMAGINE 2.0 now called CODEX. It took us a while to bring this forward, but here it is.
For those of you in other classes, this is a monthly creative practice that threads througout a year, and goes perfectly well with ANY other curriculum you are working with as long as you can take about 4 hours a month with this. It will translate into all areas of your life.
For those of you interested in COLOR of WOMAN this will be the best education you can get about Intentional Creativity and HOW it works and the science of the impact. It will also keep you working between now and when we begin Color of Woman in April. This is the perfect exploration time and prep time to prepare you. And to fall in love with the universe…
