hi! it’s me lou fuzzy. welcome to some pieces of my mind, daily rituals, and noticings. i’ve recently discovered my general process of progress is confusion — clarity — doubt and back to confusion. it’s not an endless repetitive cycle without growth, however, each new clarity is adding to old clarity as i circle into new depths. the more you know the more questions you have kinda thing.. it’s a joyful process that i’m always moving thru. it often feels like holding puzzle pieces in yr head, not sure where they fit but you know they’re important, and you just keep collecting till VOILA the pattern emerges; the clarity is yummy. which is all to say, this space will be a place for both puzzle pieces and emergent patterns to be shared. plz enjoy <3
a thought: the cure for boredom is paying attention, relaxing into wonderment. there are millions of miracles happening around us at once. salvation lies in paying attention, things yearning to be witnessed (or are they? does it matter to them whether they are witnessed or not?) i as a piece of nature, a piece of the divine, the universe, can say it does matter to me to be witnessed. and why would it not to the other pieces of myself, that is to say the universe.
my creative practice is part of my spiritual practice, and vice versa. both are constantly feeding each other. in 2019, i’ve been working deeply with the elements: how they appear, the energy they carry, what they symbolize, and how we can engage them to heal and magnify. waterfalls have also been a big theme this year. i often work with an energy or an idea across many mediums as a way to experience them more intimately, gleaning new secrets that make us closer as i progress.
questions i’m asking:
how do we ground?
when we are unbraiding the parts of us that are self and the pieces that are environmental conditioning, what are our reliable tools?
how do i maximize my resiliency?
daily time spent w nature, noticing
nature is my portal to the divine, my map back to center, and how i realign with what it means for me to be alive
spiritual empowerment sessions
part of my spiritual practice has evolved into sharing knowledge & tools with others thru 1on1 sessions
a perfect time to check in with self and what is ready to be built or focused on for the coming cycle
honing intuition, communing with ancestors, deeper connection and alignment, more joy
