May you choose to sift the glitter from the grit of life.
May you sharpen those internal soul tools that make self excavation possible, even when messy.
May you choose to pursue your life purpose fearlessly, no matter what bills are due.
May you realize that you don’t need to be inspired to create, and you don’t need to clean the house or the catbox first.
May you stop, stop, stop letting the inner perfectionist make decisions that hold you back from joy.
May you invite the wild self who knows how to have a really good time into your daily life.
May you let yourself off your own hooks and spend more time playing hooky and dancing in broad daylight.
May you set up an art studio in the middle of your life so that self expression can be an easy access vehicle of transportation.
May you find the tribe of folks who are strange in the same ways you are, so you do not feel alone.
May you shine your own little light, and sing it to the world even if you are off key.
May you believe the best about you – that you do have something original to contribute to life.
May you listen to the compass of your own heart, and follow it over the path someone else suggests.
May you meow more often, roar more often, and be known to exclaim in a loud voice – as often as necessary – both what you are happy about and what you need.
May you find more ways to snuggle, kiss, pet and both give and receive profound outrageous affection.
May you let go of old stories that no longer serve, and invite your legendary self to inspiration tea parties.
May you enjoy the ripening fruits of all that you have created so far, so that your year is a bountiful harvest.
May you remember, you are a unique, lovely, wild thing, and a sacred temple of possibility.
Want to join me in going wild launching your blog or website, or get your own downloadable painting retreat?
Do you have a webcam??????? I swear to you all morning long I have been wildly tearing my living room apart. That includes letting go of all my Good Girl Books that TELL ME HOW TO GET IT RIGHT, all of my old vibs of living in a NUNNERY while I’m trying to live in THIS WORLD. And then I ran to get my mirror and makeup and made up my Wild Face….Painted my Girl Face on through smiles and tears, Went out Walking to Hear the Birds in the Trees and YES….I even got out all the paintbrushes, paints, glue and glitter, stones and buttons, stencils and scissors….And they are now in all the places that I emptied of things for my HEAD instead of my Wild Heart. Thank GOD SHE NEVER GIVES UP ON US. Thank you for your Glittery Blessing Blog!
Beautiful Shiloh! Just what I needed….thank you!
Oh Dear One, how you make my heart sing!!
You are a shining light.
I’m already planning an inspiration tea party, wish I could invite you :)
I will be expecting an invitation!
Great poem girl! Just what I needed today :) Cheers to you and your new adventures. Keep up the joy, inspiration and outrageously wild life loving!
My most recent post for the fabulous Women Who Run with the Wolves book club I mentioned the conflict between my wild woman/creative self and the world of daily chores, which included cleaning the kitty litter box! I’m gonna print this out and post it so I can see it all the time! Merci Beaucoup Shiloh for the gift you provide in reminding us what is most important.
oh you wonderful woman!!!! we were communicatin’ across the wild woman ethers we were. I would like to see a poem out of this rant!
ODE TO MY RANT
RANT O WOMAN of Mystery!
There will come again
The time for Silence.
From Silence I MADE YOU.
From Substance I WOVE YOU.
From LIGHT I ILLUMINATE YOU.
RANT and do not stop.
Let your hair glisten
Let your eyes sparkle
Let your hands hold feathers
Breathe into your Sacred Heart
And feel the Pulse of MY HEART IN YOU.
We made a Promise*
You and I*
That we would NEVER abandon
our Love for Love.
That LOVE is coming~
Coming FULL CIRCLE.
From the depths of MY WOMB
Through the spirals of stars
Across the Oceans and Lands,
Skies and Seas,
Seeking ~Succoring~ Seducing
Your Sublime Spirit
I SEE YOU ARE FEARLESS
I SEE YOU ARE FREE
I SEE YOU ARE PASSIONATE
I SEE YOU ARE A SONG OF SONGS
I SEE YOU ARE MY OWN.
Rant, My Beloved Daughters
I’m so glad a twisted path has led me to your spirit. I needed EXACTLY the kind of cheerleading you offer. I was about to let go of the “old story” that I’m creative.
Now I’m holding on to that story for dear life!
oh my dear Joy Mary!! You done did it. Gorgeous!! YAHHOOOO all the way to you. Will you post this on the Cosmic Cowgirls Rodeo of the Soul?
Thank you so much for allowing me to use this writing as a swap them for ATCs. I posted it and the members LOVE IT!! I’ll make sure you get a photo of the art you inspired when it’s all done mid-March.
Have a very blessed day!
ps…thanks for sharing yourself with all of us…you are a GIFT!!
