Intuitive Insights for Soul-Inspired Living Quote Cards 

 

“If you look too closely at the form, you miss the essence.”

– Rumi

Oh yes, the little pink gazelle elves have been busy indeed…whipping up new quote card sets left, right & center!

Our latest compilation of inspirational quotes is “Intuitive Insights for Soul-Inspired Living.” We love them and hope you will, too!

Here’s one gem from the set:

“Not knowing how to feed the spirit, we try to muffle its demands in distraction.”

– Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The purpose of these particular quotes is to provide a few insights that may help us hear what our spirit might be trying to tell us. In today’s busy, fast-paced and often noisy world, there is certainly no shortage of distractions pulling us every which way.

But if we can make time to sit quietly for a few moments every day, just to check in with our selves to see how we are really doing – regarding the aspects of our lives that are truly important to us, not just the ones that squeak the loudest – then in my experience, quite often we will also receive guidance on the next step that needs to be taken.

As with all the other quote sets, there are 30 cards in a set. Each card is 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. The sets are $7.95 each (plus $2 shipping) or 2 sets for $14.95 (plus $2 shipping).

Here is a sampling of quotes:

A Widow’s Awakening – Unpacking the Ultimate Mystery

By Kara Post-Kennedy

“The author understands above all that grief plays tricks with the mind and that as sentient beings we are always seeking meaning; even in tragedy, even in the senseless.”

– Kara Post Kennedy

Here is a detailed and insightful book review of A Widow’s Awakening:

Death is the ultimate mystery; while we can understand the mechanics of biological, physical death, it is hard for any of us to fathom the ongoing journey of the soul without its corporeal suit.  Religions try to explain it in a way our brains can comprehend, people who share “after-life” experiences hope to shed some light for the curious, but no one truly knows, once the body has expired, what this energy and intelligence and love we have accumulated during our lifetime does next.

In “A Widow’s Awakening”, Maryanne Pope grapples with all of this through the transformative lens of profound grief; when her husband and “soul mate” was killed in a freak workplace accident at the age of 32, her life was turned upside down and inside out so catastrophically that she had no choice but to dive into the ocean of pain and confusion to try to make sense of her enormous loss.  Or if not “sense”, at least find meaning.

This fictionalized account of her story is by turns raw and gangly and then elegant and profound.  She leaves her ego at the door and just lays it out bare—she is not precious with herself and gives the reader the whole spectrum of her response, from grandiose delusions to suicidal despair.  The rollercoaster ride of early grief is accounted for with complete candor; her unflinching approach makes for a compelling, although sometimes uncomfortable, tale…

Awakening the Divine Feminine – Villa Eyrie Photo Shoot

 

Women in white, taking a break between events

“It’s a perfect moment to quietly meditate on the cosmic Great Mother who can inspire us all; the divine feminine Spirit of nurturance, known as The Goddess, so revered in ancient times and being rediscovered by women today.”

– Sarah Ban Breathnach

You just never know where you’re going to end up on a Friday afternoon

A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Barbara Edie (I have blogged about Barb before). She was wondering if I would be interested in participating in an afternoon photo shoot at the oh-so-lovely Villa Eyrie Resort (near Mill Bay) where she and her colleague, Mischelle vanTheil, would be hosting an afternoon workshop – prior to their upcoming 4-day retreat, Awakening Your Feminine Divine (Aug 27 to 30).

The purpose of the afternoon would be to lead the participants in several mini-workshops (a sampling of the retreat) – and while we were partaking in these activities, professional photographers would be snapping photos, to use for promoting the retreat.

I e-mailed Barb back immediately with a resounding, “Yes!”

The afternoon was a delight. I had the opportunity to reconnect with some friends I hadn’t seen in awhile, as well as to get to know a few new fabulous women – all the while participating in some very creative workshops that really got me thinking about what it means to ‘awaken one’s Divine Feminine.’

I suspect this means different things to to different people but I must say the timing of the photo shoot – a month before the release of my book, A Widow’s Awakening, as a novel by BHC Press – was interesting. As you may know, my story is very much about the spiritual awakening I experienced after John’s sudden death, including strong links to the Divine Feminine.

I would love to hear what ‘awakening the Divine Feminine’ means to you.

At the end of the photo shoot, we were all treated to an exquisite dinner at the hotel. The view was stunning!

Here are a few more photos from our delightfully Divine afternoon:
