My Long Love Affair With Creativity
As a young girl, I constantly doodled, wrote ridiculous poetry and typed my first romance novel at 13 years old, (starring me and C. Thomas Howell.) Now, all grown up and mother of three daughters, I try and incorporate creativity in my life any way I can with painting, writing, craft projects, decorating for events, and of course throwing as many parties as my husband will let me. I truly love to gather people together.
Not Just a Mom
In another lifetime, I worked in television for many years and also as a computer program class instructor; all of which I enjoyed and it served me at that time. Once I started having babies, we decided to switch gears and that I would stay home to raise our girls. It was a truly blessed (and exhausting) time. But year after year, I noticed something... something inside of me felt a little unsettled, unfinished and quite honestly, unfulfilled. As much as I loved being a mom at home, I still couldn't deny that something was missing in my life.
I called it purpose.
There's something else...around the age of seven, I began seeing sparks of light hovering above my bed at night and angelic looking beings appearing before me. I would "know" things that I shouldn't have known and have witnessed several little unexplained miracles. Still today, I receive "messages" from angels, my spirit guides and from those who have crossed over... sometimes even from those still living. I have always called my late night visits as "visitors" as they would illuminate the room waking me or enter my dreams - vivid, crazy-ass dreams.
Then my father died and everything was amplified.
Not Just a Visitor
In May of 1996, my dad was shot and stabbed by a 15 year-old girl who was trying to steal his truck. I don't have to get into the gory details of the devastation that devoured me and my family, but as one can imagine, it was all-encompassing. It was during this very dark time that I woke up one morning in my childhood home with a man in white, kneeling at my bedside, praying... that man was Jesus.
I'll never ever forget this: He looked at me with these magnificent blue/green eyes and told me that he was so very sorry for my pain... that I was so very loved... and that everything was going to be okay.
You see, I couldn't just forget this. It was a gift from God, (or Source, the Universe) ...and with this miraculous gift, along with my, let's call them "super spidey senses, I had now found my purpose:
To bring people together in hopes to ignite their creativity and healing through connections with one another and with Spirit... and hopefully a whole lot of fun while doing it.
I hope you will join me on this journey.
In Love, Light and Creativity,
