Weekly Rune – Uruz

Posted by on 17 Jun 2013 in The Weekly Rune | 0 comments

Uruz - Auroch - I always pay close attention when Uruz turns up in a cast, as something wild is about to happen. Through the Rune story of the last few weeks, we’ve been on this course of taking things deeper, a quiet time of culling resources to support the true self, and learning more about who that is. With the advent of Uruz, we’re standing right at the threshold of impeccably knowing hidden truth. Ordinarily when Uruz visits, I’d say we’re about to  greet deep personal insight evidencing who we are and what we’re doing in our lives. Emerging from the pattern we’ve seen over the last month or so, the Runes have been telling us...

Weekly Rune – Uruz

Posted by on 13 May 2013 in The Weekly Rune | 0 comments

Uruz - Auroch - This second Rune of the First aett hasn’t come up in a long time. In the story of the Runes, Uruz is the first point that we become aware of our ability to shape the Universe. We become aware of Nature’s Mysteries, specifically, that we are one of them. How, then, does Uruz shed light on our ability to shape ourselves? This week look to the story we tell about ourselves. Uruz begins a deep transformation in how we manifest ourselves.  How we manifest ourselves depends on the inner story we tell. Is the one we’re actually telling in sync with the one we want to tell? If not, now is the time to change it. The magick of Uruz lies in the...

Creative Authenticity in the Workplace

Posted by on 15 Feb 2012 in Q&A | 1 comment

Kelley,  While I enjoy my current job, it has gotten to a stage where I walked out and cannot face returning.  I wish I could make a living from my creativity,  but that seems like an impossible dream. I don’t want to be trapped in my current situation, but the only place I can go is another dead-end job and they may not tolerate my physical and mental illness.  Will I ever be able to follow my own heart-song? Thanks–EJ. Thanks for your note, EJ.  This stage in your growth is about balance, specifically standing solid in your true self across different worlds.  The core issue is being able to be your creative self and carry that into other, more linear areas...

Wise Voice – Janet Riehl – Author, Poet, Artist

Posted by on 28 Sep 2011 in Wise Voice | 2 comments

I first met Janet through the chance joining of our work in Terry Laszlo-Gopadze’s anthology, “The Spirit of a Woman – Stories to Empower and Inspire.” Inspired by her words and vision connecting through art forms and with people, I consider her passion necessary to pass on to my readers. Goddess in the Clay Amphora by Janet Grace Riehl There she is. The goddess in the clay amphora. The genie is the bottle. Her torso only. Head, arms, legs left to suggestion. Her little breasts. More belly and triangle next time. Buttocks with a slight cleft. No tools. Just smooshed by fingers. I’ll leave her here surrounded by the finger crunchies that look like...

Wise Voice – Terri St. Cloud, Bone Sigh Arts

Posted by on 8 Sep 2011 in Wise Voice | 4 comments

Through some mix of leaps and clicks, I found Terri St. Cloud and Bone Sigh Arts a year or so ago. The feelings her work evoked slid between words and dodged their usual emotional barriers, and I found her imaginative agility profound.  On her site she describes her art as “sighs from my depths, sighs from my very bones.”  I knew exactly what she meant and the pain that can come from being that reed.  Social networking kept me abreast of new artistic releases, but a wild little twist of fate introduced me to her formally a little over a week ago. It is my pleasure to gift her to my readers now. When Kelley asked me if I’d be interested in writing a...
