Subliminal Inspiration

In attempting to re-establish my qigong practice, I was going through the journals I kept during my years of classes. And while refreshing myself on the names of some of the basic exercises, I was amazed to realize how much my practice has subconsciously influenced Luna’s Designs. “Swimming Dragon”. “Lotus Opens its Petals”. “White Crane Spreads its Wings”. “Phoenix & Dragon”

It’s humbling to recognize that the answer to the question “What inspires you?” could be anything you’ve ever experienced.

Creating Sacred Space

Sacred space and sacred time and something joyous to do is all we need. Almost anything then becomes a continuous and increasing joy…..Joseph Campbell


I touched on the need for sacred space in a previous post. And I am sorry to say that I have neglected entering my own space and spending joyous time in it for a very long while because of everything that I thought was needed of me by the outside world.

Sacred Space can take many forms. It can be as small as a conscious breath, as large as the universe, and anything in between.

My own sacred space, created for my qigong/tai chi and meditation/prayer practice, exists in what used to be my stained glass studio of 20 years. Before that, it was my father’s potting shed. All incarnations filled with joyous pursuits.

The process of creating it was an unforgettable experience because friends came together and we used what I already had, what friends gave me, what I loved, what inspired me, what made me feel passionate and therefore more alive. It was about making a part of myself visible.

It is time to reconsecrate my space and my practice so that I may contemplate on the very things that went into it’s manifestation…my friends, what I have, what inspires me, and what makes me feel passionate and therefore more alive.

Heart

“Keep a good heart. That’s the most important thing in life. It’s not how much money you make or what you can acquire. The art of it is to keep a good heart.”
