“Living By Our Felt Sense”

Elizabeth’s quilt

Elizabeth bought the quilt I made a while ago, knowing that she would use it in her healing room.   She recently sent this picture of it and wrote…

“My healing room is really happy and your quilt is still the energetic center.  I recently was given these chakra stones and shown to lay them on my table.  Since I work by phone it creates an energetic grid of the body that helps me during the session, it’s very cool.”

Then Nova, who just  bought my Yoni Tree fabric painting, sent me a email.

She too has a healing room that she’ll hang Yoni Tree in.  She’s finishing up her Shamanic studies.  Nova wrote to me that she was sure I had channeled the piece.  When I asked her what she meant she wrote back…

“Your process on this Yoni hanging was completely felt…when we Iive by our felt sense, we are  connecting to the UnSeen.”

“Yes”, I wrote back to her, “that’s exactly how it happened.”  And that’s just how I create so much of my work.  I never thought of it in those words, but Nova described my process perfectly.

I feel my way through my work, from step to step, never thinking too far ahead, but allowing things to happen and trusting my decisions.

The trust is such an important part  of the process.

Without it, there’s no moving on.  It’s trusting myself, which is important so I can  go inside of me and stay open without being afraid of what’s there.  Also, trusting the unknown.  Those forces at work, whatever they may be, to do whatever it is they do.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  It is the source of all true art and science.  He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe is as good as dead-his eyes are closed”  Albert Einstein
