A Bit About Me

My photo
Welcome -- It's January 2016 and I am not giving up on the idea that people may appreciate and benefit from some of my story. I began in 2008 in a quest to blog my reflective experience through the lens of my virtues. Life, while full of rich lessons, did not provide the time and space needed to blog. Some days I wish I had a record of it all, other days I am grateful that I did not make a public exhibition. However, today, I commit to power-up the joy, meaning and purpose in my life. I hope that you will find it inspiring and helpful in your own journey. As a Virtues Project Master Facilitator and Grace Coach, it is my mission in life to help change the culture of our caring. As a humanity, the quality of our relationships is what truly matters. I aim to blog about virtues, what they mean to me and how they inspire, or challenge my life. Follow along with me if you are curious or care to do the same. Leave comments if you can, pose questions or link me if my blog has encouraged you. I look forward to connecting.

Expression: Clear & Open

Expression: Clear & Open

Expression is the key to happiness & the voice of my Soul. Whichever form we use, we are individual and unique. The expression spectrum spans from subtle body language, spoken language & into the arts - dance, theatre, music, voice, sculpture, painting, writing & poetry etc. Expression is both visual and/or verbal, complete in its own right, sometimes better when remaining in flux.  I believe the more honest our expression, the closer to wholeness we become.

We're born with a complex system including the spirit within us and we use all of who we are to manifest various forms of expression. Every baby is born with pure spirit conscious and if blessed, through time may naturally express themselves - remaining clear and open. We are meant to dream, we need to play and laugh. When we can sing, dance and paint, we live life in love with our fuller expressions. Believe it or not, what we express is not nearly as important as the pearls of wisdom we exchange with ourselves.

By developing self awareness I am sure we'll find that self-worth, self-esteem and self-love can be manufactured and expressed if allowed to flow freely through the body from the Soul. Inner unity is the highest form of expression to honour the union of our own temple in the expressed embodiment of the Divine.
