gratefully receiving bear hugs.

a little bit of gentleness goes a long way

I don’t often ask for much from friends and my community. I don’t ask because I see myself as being pretty self contained and self reliant, and often pride myself on having large stores of energy and good stuff. I don’t ask because I can always see the higher perspective, and give myself the rope to climb out of the hole.

I realised today that sometimes I don’t ask as well because I’m afraid that if I do, I won’t be given what I’m asking for. That I’ll be vulnerable and lost. That I won’t be supported and cared for.

I want to live with a little more trust than that. A little more bravery. A little more faith that we’ll each be held up when we need to be by our communities of souls.

So today, I ask for bear hugs.
I ask for lit candles & prayers for healing for my beautiful brother-in-lawish Graeme who is intensive care after an accident. And I ask for lots of love, grace & women sister strength to my amazing sister Rebekah. I love both of these souls so much, and only want good for them.

If you feel called to give, I so gratefully receive, for me & my family.

Imagining & seeing candles lighting up the world with their songs of healing & hope,
and having faith, trust and belief in the heartfelt asking,
Leonie

Goddess Louise: Custom Soul Story art

I so love creating these!
I’ve got a few more being finished up at the moment, and winging their way across the sea. If you’d like to order one for your own gorgeous self, check out my Soul Story commissions page. Oh and I’m sooooo keen to create some more sacred Goddess in You paintings if you get called that way!

This weekend the women {and their amazing children} will be gathering in the mountains for a day filled with delight at my retreat… miracles happen when women gather… add a native american tipi, a bush labyrinth, creating, sharing, circling and laughter… and I can only imagine the beautiful joys that are going to be birthed on Sunday.

In Gladness & gratitude,
Leonie

SPECIAL: Soulful Goddess Resource Pack

I’m so excited to put together these Soulful Goddess Resource Packs. I wanted to put together a set of art prints for all the soulful, spirited, sacred goddesses out there creating a life well lived & loved.

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to get a Goddess Leonie art print, this is probably it ;). The Soulful Goddess art print pack is a special price – you get three prints for the price of two.

This set includes the You are a Goddess art print to remind you that you are a divine soul on an amazing journey, to inspire you and support you. A Circle of Women shares about the beauty of tribes and communities, of women gathering together to learn and share. It is a print to celebrate the circle you already have, or set the intention to draw your own circle into your life. And Meditation for Grounding is an illustrated meditation of the grounding visualisation I use in my retreats and circles that you can use in your own soulful daily practices. Like a Soulful Retreat in a pack!

It’s also a limited edition set of 25 – so get in to get your set before they are sold out.

Big, bright, colourful love & light to you today…
sparkling between our spirits ~~~

A week of miracles.

This past week has been filled with so many deep miracles and blessings that I am filled up, dancing in the joy I can scarcely believe it, and yet, of course I can. It has been a week of just what I dream and desire: divine living, sublime adventure and absolute possibility. A life as divine as the Goddess inside me. I feel so blessed with all the love, connections and openings in my life right here, right now.

An inspiring new friend asked me last week how I was. I replied “I feel like I am in the middle of one long universal orgasm. Each moment feels delicious and profound.” The leaves, the road unfolding before the bus, the awakenings. The friendships, the reality of dreams come true, love like an eagle soaring into my life.

Tonight, my love brought me warm buttered popcorn while I was having a shower. It is these tender miracles that my life has been… these tender miracles and more:

* travelling to sydney on a random and divine adventure
* meeting and photographing the amazing author and oracle card creator lucy cavendish
* going to the australian premiere of “you can heal your life” with my gorgeous goddess sister sone
* meeting the INCREDIBLE louise hay and seeing just how much she radiates love to everyone around her
* giggling hilariously with sone when we meet someone we TOTALLY did not expect to… the country singer lee kernaghan! he was absolutely endearing and beautiful.
* doubling on the back of sone’s vespa across the city at night… feeling totally wild and more than a little blessed that we survived… hee hee hee!
* journeying back home to be snuggled in our big bed with my love and charlie-dog for a night
* heading off with my mermaid sister kayles to a reiki healing retreat run by our wise woman sister gini eagle
* spending two days at healing “bush university”, learning healing in tipis, by lakes, rivers and mountains
* walking golden fields with deep breath
* having a steaming bath in the moonlight… next to the lake, a fire lit beneath the claw footed bath tub to keep the water at temperature perfect degrees celsius. just one month ago i wondered how beautiful it would be to have a bath outside, then here i was, with some of the loveliest souls i know, having baths in the moonlight, gasping at the exquisiteness of it all
* home again, to count all the thousands of blessings in my life.

May I always remember just how deeply blessed I am, and how possible my dreams really are. May I always remember the love, light and laughter that surrounds and saturates my spirit.

May I always remember popcorn in the shower,
may I always know just how perfect and sweet this moment right now really is.

Love & Possibility,
Healing & Happiness,
Glory & Gratitude,
Leonie
