11/11/11

                  
    A quick "rough" sketch
I want to tell you how rich this creative time has been for me and how, if I hadn't declared my intentions here (17 days ago) I am certain that this daily creating would not be happening. Not surprisingly, the more I show up to create, the more creativity seems to be flowing out of me.. like a faucet has been turned on or turned up. Thank you, dear reader, for being my witness, my support, my reason to share.

I want to tell you how, a few nights ago, when I was resisting the hell out of working on my book, I kept getting this message to Just open the book file, just open it!  And when I did, the first thing I noticed was the number of words I had so far...3,333!  And then I had this strong nudge to google the significance of this number, and, oh wow.  Here's a quote from what I found...


The 3333 recurring number sequence indicates that the Ascended Masters and angels are near you at this time, reassuring you of their love, support and companionship. When you notice the 3333 number sequence repeating to you, call upon the Ascended Masters and angels often. They are aware of your position or situation and know the best way to go about things for the highest good. They will help and guide you through your next life phase and wait for you to call upon them.

Here's the thing...it doesn't matter at all that I know nothing about numerology or whether or not I even believe in the significance of specific numbers...what is significant to me is that I had an intuitive nudge to look this up and I followed that nudge--I said yes to it.  And what I found felt like the most beautiful kind of support.  I went from feeling a painful amount of resistance and doubt to feeling fully supported and an opening to possibility. After this experience, I was assured that this "working on my book" need not look like anything my mind might conjure up...

I want to tell you that I've been seeing so many deer in my neighborhood lately and they've been reminding me to be gentle and soft.  I love these sweet animals--I want to curl up with one.

I want to tell you how incredbily meditative it's been to draw--to show up with absolutely no agenda and sink fully into the process.  Drawing is something I've never really done before (I decided it was something that I just didn't do or couldn't do)--it's so nice to be shedding that silly view of myself and simply show up.

I want to tell you that I gathered with a group of women a few nights ago & it was the sweetest, most connecting evening.  We told stories, shared art & poetry, drew Tarot cards, laughed, cried a little, set intentions and asked for support, wrote our wishes down &  placed them in a gorgeous, little wishing box, it was a wide open, treasure of an evening.

I want to tell you that the more I tune into my intuitive voice and listen to its messages, the more messages there seem to be to hear.  When I follow through with what's being conveyed, regardless of whether it makes sense to my mind, things expand--beautiful, unexpected things happen.

I want to tell you that the more I let go of "good" (meaning trying to create something "good"), the more creative freedom I am finding...there is no doubt that this freedom transfers to every single area of my life.

I want to tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you. Your support & encouragement helps keep my fire lit and lit and lit.  Thank you so very much for being here.


I hope your 11/11/11 overflows with whatever you want it to overflow with.

With so much love,


Julia

  1. Julia, I'm so thrilled that you are not only connected with yourself but with angels, Masters, kind women, and the creative process. You take a step each day to meet your muse and she is already there waiting for you.

    I have to admit...I've been holding onto good lately with my second novel and it's messing me up. I so need to let go. I probably will need to come back and read this post again to remind me to let good go.

    I love you sweet soul sister.
    Thank you hon.

  2. I want to tell you that I love you dearly and you are such an inspiration to me. That drawing - it gives me goosebumps and if I wasn't sitting here in an office with other people right now, I would be allowing tears of connection and "knowing" to stream down my cheeks, uninhibited.

    I miss connecting the way I used to on my blog. Life has taken a different turn for me and I know I will find the meaning, purpose, and opportunity with this new path.

    Your words and art, your HEART, keeps me believing in my purpose, in love, in hope, in truth.

    My fellow "11" friend, I love you. Thank you for sharing your soul. I am so much richer in every way for it.

  3. It is as though I am witnessing a birth..in your drawing and in your words.

    Would not miss this for the world.

    Love you!

  4. Julia! I want to tell you that this post is so beautiful and I have connected with it in so many ways! I LOVE how much you are pushing through stuff and honoring your true voice. I know this feeling so well. When I began in June to come back to art and to the true path I am meant to follow, each time I thought about doing a piece for money or anything other than myself, I would totally chicken out and put off doing it although my heart ached to go ahead and DO IT! When I started honoring my heart and did it with abandon, without expectation, the creativity flowed "like a tap that won't turn off". THANK YOU for sharing your process. It helps me validate my own. YOU ARE AMAZING!

    Pinning that on the magic board above my desk. <3

  7. Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this - amazing what can happen when you listen to that nudge and follow wherever it leads. I seriously have goosebumps after reading the significance of 3333. You clearly are on such a beautiful path, and I'm excited to be here to witness it.

    Personally, you are inspiring me to get back to my book - stop the excuses and the procrastination and just dive in. So thank you extra for that. Tomorrow is a new day - a day where I get to decide to start again. And that's what I plan to do. So much love...

  8. It's so cool that you looked up the meaning of 3333, I look at the clock all the time at 3:33, and it almost always is when I am seeking or questioning something. Amazing to know that there may be angels around me, what an awesome thought. Thank you for sharing this Jules :) <3
