I have been motivated and inspired by a client turned friend, whom I had the pleasure to meet a year ago at an event where I spoke to a large group in Portland. She sat in the front row, smiled and graced me with her support and joy and then took the time to introduce herself after the lecture. We’ve expanded the initial introduction to sessions and insights and mutual respect.
What is important to share is Sheila Stephens incredible generosity of spirit, love and wealth. She constantly is a reminder of what we can be and do by putting our focus on what is truly important in our life. With loving encouragement Sheila has re-embraced painting with zeal and creativity. She has been a whirlwind of activity, brushes and paint swirling, her dreams her inspiration.
It hasn’t always been this easy. Sheila lost her loving husband eight years ago from a hit and run accident. Here today and literally gone the next second. Turned her life upside down. Prior to this, she had immense health problems that kept her couch-ridden for years while raising two sons. And yet through despair, grief and illness she has managed to see above the clouds, raise her vision to embrace the wonder of life, and place it on paper.
In addition to this she shares her wealth with others, literally gifting them intuitive sessions for inspiration and healing. She brings extra light onto the planet just by being herself, with no pretense, no expectations, centered in forgiveness and love and immense generosity of spirit.
We can all learn from her willingness to share, give, create and be.
I invite each of you to reach inside yourself, pull out any creative devises which motivate you whether it be a paint brush, pencil, shovel, trowel, spatula, pen and paper, scissors, beads, cookie sheet, cake pan, old furniture, old cars, seeds, note cards, a camera – whatever inspires you to awaken your creative spirit igniting your artistry and soul-FULL nature. Have fun as it’s nearly holiday season; what a fun way to give to those you love.
Actually, I’m pulling out my personal paints and brushes to spend some creative time with spirit and self. I invite you to expand your wings and do the same.
Cosmic Sunshine to you!
