What Swan told me today

Nov 11, 2020

I pulled a card for us from Kim Krans's Wild Unknown Animal Spirit card deck. I asked: "What do we need to hear today to help us free our voices?", and we got Swan!


"The Swan is ready to take us to the fluid realm of writing, creating, and reflecting. When the Swan card appears your soul is calling for attention...for solo time. An inner voice is waiting to be heard, an inner vision likely to be revealed." - Kim Krans

When I look at this image of Swan I am drawn to the attitude in...

You don't have to share your blog with your mom

Nov 10, 2020

You have important and meaningful stories to tell, and you want to tell them online.

Most likely, you want to help people who are going through the same challenging experiences you've gone through. You want to share the wisdom you've learned, so the experience can be easier for your reader.

Your audience are the people who have been through the same thing as you. They are the ones you are writing to.

Sometimes, however, the stories you want to share with your online audience are...

Why hit publish on your own voice

Nov 09, 2020

I am still in rest & reflection mode after the election last week. I'm so happy Biden & Harris won!!! I also have some hesitation in my celebration, not knowing what #45 might do next and knowing there is BIG work to keep doing.

My mission is to free women's voices, to help us tell our stories, and to help us speak truths that need to be spoken.

I knew this was my mission when #45 won the 2016 election, and the 2020 election makes me feel this purpose deeper in my bones than ever...

Waning quarter moon reflection questions

Nov 08, 2020

Today is the Waning Quarter Moon, and that means it's time to feel into the energy of our creative cycles.

The waning quarter moon is the halfway mark between the full and new moons. It is a time when the moon is descending into its dark period. This is a time to ask what needs to be released.

A self-care recommendation for you!

Nov 07, 2020

Today is the day before the Waning Quarter Moon, and that means it's time for a Day of Sacred Rest.

If you haven't shut off the news this week, then today would be the perfect day to take an intentional break.

Take some time, even one hour, to turn off the news, rest, and reflect.

This was a big week, and now it's time to restore your nervous system.

 

Here is today's featured creation!

 

One of my favorite self-care practices is Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra is a style of...

What Moth told me today (again!)

Nov 06, 2020

I have some fun oracle card magic for you today!!

One of my creative goals with our daily letters is to pull an animal card once a week from Kim Krans's The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Card Deckand then tell you the message this animal has for us.

I wrote this letter after I pulled the Moth card a couple weeks ago, and I wrote this letter after I pulled the Moth card again last week. I love getting the same animal a couple times in a row, because it means that...

Writing isn't just a hobby for you - it's a calling

Nov 04, 2020

Note: I'm writing this letter to you during the morning of the U.S. election. It will come to you without me knowing the results of the election or any news of the impact the election has had on you or on us as a society. I apologize if this letter doesn't acknowledge what has happened. I'm writing now because I haven't turned on the news, and I'm finding the stillness of this rainy autumn morning to be a lovely atmosphere to send you a message. xo

Light on golden leaves

Nov 03, 2020

Light falls on the golden leaves of a vine maple.

This is your gentle reminder to breathe today.

Deep breath in.

Deep breath out.

Repeat.

xoxo,

Emma

P.S. Some good self-care things to do today would be to turn off the news, go for a walk, listen to an audiobook, or take a nap. xo

A confidence boost for your creative heart

Nov 01, 2020

Look up toward the velvety night sky. See the depths of the cosmos there.

It is beauty. It is mystery. Each particle studied and loved by research scientists and poets alike.

You get to be here, just like the stars get to be here.

You get to exist, just like the planets get to exist.

You get to own the space you occupy in the cosmos without question. 

Those who say you can’t be what you want to be, don’t rule your heart.

Those who say you can’t speak the words you...
