Doing some work

Doing some spiritual work here. For me, this includes art, gardening, meditation, laughter, as well as some thoughtful rituals.

I visited with my favorite intuit recently. She's not a formal intuit, but when we talk, we both are hearing things from each other that don't come out in words. For me, this completely makes sense. Because I'm intuitive. I pick up the thoughts and feelings of others around me, whether or not they're said out loud or even directed at me. It's a gift. It's also a pain in the ass. Because it effects me in ways that can be confusing. When I acknowledge and give time and energy to my intuition, I am stronger for it.

So I'm doing a little work right now. It includes a little of this...
Dousing with florida water

And a little of building my shrine...
My shrine

And surrounding myself with more of this (art AdRi and I recently purchased)...
art always makes me feel good

It feels good to do this work. I used to think I needed to foster my gifts through organized religion. As a child, my parents allowed me to go to whatever church I wanted. And I did. Methodist, Lutheran, Evangelical. After college I was a devout member of the Church of Religious Science. But I realize organized religion was a way for me to deal with listening to my intuition in a formal way. I'm finding the way to my intuition now on my own, and with a little help from my friend here. It's my magic. And it smells like rosemary, orange blossoms and frankincense.

I have a flower garden that is in dire need of attention this spring *wink, wink*.

I think it's awesome, your intuition, keep it up :)

*sigh* I love your blog.
I too am very sensitive to thoughts and feelings of others around me. I don't think it serves me.
I miss that quiet time to cultivate balance and peace in my surroundings.

Work is good. I love it when folks aren't afraid or embarassed or ashamed or angry about dealing with their spiritual side. Embrace it! Find it! See it! Good for you.
