gratefully receiving bear hugs.

by Leonie Dawson on August 31, 2008

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,

Goddess Louise: Custom Soul Story art

by Leonie Dawson on August 29, 2008

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,
