Sacred Journey

My quest is a sacred journey of consciousness, every time I do the work of Color of Woman I become more conscious, more focused and I feel it deep in my soul. It is metamorphosis as I am transformed from the old into the new.

I am here to discover and embrace my piece of the red thread; I am here to serve our precious Earth, the Divine Feminine and my own dreams.  I am here to open myself and learn how to bring this incredible transformative process into the sacred space I am creating to meet my beloveds and offer them connection, creativity and safe space.

The path I walk follows those who came before me and those who walk beside me, we are all connected in a beautiful transformative healing community and as I journey with my sisters I am shedding the tendency to carry too much of the thread, I am honouring myself by recognising my limits and empowering myself to focus just on my piece and to do it well. We are a community that can offer much, to many, I do not have to do it all alone and this is so freeing and nurturing.

My community is crying out for new solutions to serious problems I feel that call to serve my community and I am eager to do so. I will bring intentional creativity to these people, It is a privilege and an honour I gratefully accept.

My First Red Thread Circle

A magnificent day it was on Saturday when I led my first Red Thread Session. I was joined by a small group of wild and soulful women who really did not know what they were in for.  The setting was in a friend’s beautiful home I started our workshop in her lounge room with a bit of an explanation about what intentional creativity is and a run through of our session.

I was working with these women to uncover their internal life script, to listen to that little voice inside us all who is the critic and can bring us down and then to learn how to reconnect with soul and nurture that voice to allow them to hear their muse.

We then did a guided meditation to become relaxed and grounded in the space and I read Shiloh’s poem – A poem of self-forgiveness. The magic was already working, my ladies were feeling it and in touch with their soul, tears flowed, emotions came to the surface and we all entered into a very safe, vulnerable, open and sacred space within the circle of the red thread.

We moved into a bright and sunny room where I had loved setting up this beautiful space for my guests, and here we created our cards, there was still lots of deep emotional work happening here but it was interspersed with laughter and music, chocolate and wine, and in between playing with paint the ladies faced some deep truths and learned how to turn them around. 

I learned so much as well.

I learned I can do this deep and sacred work even when I am not perfect, that I can be a vessel for others to access them selves and heal themselves and in the process find my own healing.

I learned there is a very real need for this work in our communities.
I learned to pack a few boxes of tissues next time. 

This was my first experience working with art and creating sacred space for anyone else outside of my family and it was pretty scary but so very very worthwhile. 

Feedback from my ladies is all very positive and I am ready to start planning my next workshop in this transformative, sacred work.
