MANTRA MONDAY - albeit a little late

i was inspired to paint this affirmation card after an experience i had while driving to the local shopping centre late yesterday afternoon. i was almost there when the thought suddenly crossed my mind that i should check in at crystal harmony (a mind-body-spirit shop) to see if my abraham-hicks DVD had arrived in from backorder yet. of course, after spending a chaotic afternoon at the mater hospital (see yesterday's post), i really wasn't in the mood to walk down to the store and, besides, i figured they always call me anyways. so, i bought some groceries and drove back home only to see a message chalked up on the chalkboard in the kitchen saying that the DVD was now in stock. she had called the house while i was on the way to the shopping centre and beau took the call. RATS!! this got me to thinking that i really should pay more heed to those little messages from my higher self as it isn't always just mind chatter. i would have saved myself some time and money in fuel.

so, this week's affirmation -
i am listening to the whispers

  1. Beautiful card, Serena! And yes, it pays to heed our inner voice. Funny that we are polite and listen to others when they have something to tell us, but too often don't listen to ourselves.

  2. That a create and fairly innocuous reminder to listen to our higher self. It was inconvenient; but it might be a test run for something much more significant! :)

  9. Beautiful card....and a really great message. We need to learn to listen to that inner voice more often except when it's criticizing our art!

  10. What a lovely card! & I had to chuckle at your story - made me think of Celestine Prophecy & paying attention to *synchronicities* & those little whispers! I think we've all done both - listened, & ignored . . . .

    Thank you for sending me over to green smoothie girl's site - do you have a water filter system like she mentions?? I've thought of getting something, & this is a very opportune 'whisper' (group buy on a system) . . . .

  14. I **LOVE** that card! I love doing little inspirational, mantra type stuff. You know, I'm just realizing I haven't done any in a while. Yours makes me want to!

    I also wanted to tell you that I am looking for artists who would post about the inspiring things around their studios. Please see my entry here: http://www.heatherbartlettart.com/2009/03/studio-inspiration/

    I would love it if you would do a post about stuff that inspires you and post some studio photos to share and then link from the comment section of my website so I can then come back here and see your post about your studio. I love to learn about the things that inspire other artists that they keep around them every day.

    Thanks!
