When all you have is 12 seconds…

Making my first 12seconds video on 12seconds.tv

Hola gorgeous goddesses!

So much to share. So much to do. It will happen. It is happening.

For today, here’s me & Charlie the Healer Dog’s first 12 seconds video.

Tomorrow… there will be more.

But for now, I’m giving myself the rest of the night off. Time to hug on Charlie some more, stare besotted at God Chris, watch a doggy romance movie, and curl up with my favourite magazine, freshly arrived from the states.

Right now, the Goddess inside me is asking for rest.

What can you do to celebrate the Goddess inside you today?

Big love, & joy!

Oh! P.S. For the gorgeous goddesses who asked! I meant to put this in in the last post – the amazing Spirit Portrait that sits on my desk is done by my incredible friend and tipi drumming buddy Jule. She is a deeply talented, gifted and wise soul, and is an amazing mama to a deeply talented, gifted and wise soul too (Hi Molly!)  Jule and Molly came along to one of my Day of Delight Retreats a few months ago after many moons emailing each other. We adored each other from the first hug, and spent the night before the retreat drumming in a tipi and hanging out in an old sheep shed talking about fairies. It was perfect.

Anyway, I commissioned Jule to create a pastel spirit portrait for me. When I unfolded it, my first words were “Holy crap!” I showed God Chris and his first words were “Holy crap!” Everything about her artwork is beautiful, and layered with so much meaning for me. It’s like remembering parts of myself in her artwork.

Assembling my Support Crew.

by Leonie Dawson on January 27, 2009

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

After yesterday’s post coming out about the O Word, I had a talk with my beloved. More specifically, I asked for his help and advice.

Things feel off kilter right now. And I really want to feel more supported in my busy-ness and business. What do I do?
And in that sage, simple way of his, he sat. And he thought. And then he said:

You need a new chair. A big leather one with a strong back. You need to set yourself up properly, with an office space so you feel more clear.
I rejected the idea at first, but he was firm.

You’ve got things everywhere right now, you need a place to return to. And you need a new chair that supports you.
And suddenly, I realised:

I had been wanting support. And support begins at the physical place. Support begins with a chair that is soft and “holds my back” both literally and metaphysically.

So today, my Sage Man takes me to find my chair. We sit in dozens upon dozens, finding the perfect fit and comfort and support. (All things I have been longing for in my life!)

Eventually, after three stores and a rest break to share vanilla slice, we find her.

Her name is Bessie.

As I embark on this journey of being an entrepreneur, my newest support crew member is a chair.

With Bessie safely at home, we set about creating my own little business space – separate from my studio and even my writing space. This space is solely to support me on my business journey. And that feels like a very, very fine thing.

I wonder what happens when we expand our vision of our support crew… to include not just friends, but the furniture and space around us too.

BIIIIIIIIIIIIIG HUGS!

Goddess Leonie’s Top 9 of 2009

by Leonie Dawson on January 24, 2009

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Today, I wanted to celebrate the journey we’ve had over the last year or so together ~ with a little something called

Goddess Leonie’s Top 9 of 2009.

Except it would be 2008, but take that numbers! We do not kow-tow to your logic! This post I’ll be doing the unheard of, and choosing my favourites of all my post-children. These are the posts that were like signposts for me – of change, love, beauty, soul and transformation throughout my year. They were the posts that touched me and touched you and touched Charlie the Happy Healer Dog. I reserve the right to be unabashedly teary throughout this. I’m a hopeless reminiscer.

Giving Yourself Permission
That time we gave ourselves Permission to Create – with a rainbow, shimmering permission slip. Signed by our mums, and all our angels.

Creative Goddess Meditation Video
*sniff* This was the second time we connected via video. I’ve kept it in our relationship keepsake box. The one that holds all your comments and all our connections and miracles. It’s like keeping ticket stubs from our first date. Remember how we did this a-mazing meditation together about the ocean? *sniff*

One Wild, Brave Thing
Remember that day we talked about our One Wild, Brave Things? It was like the second date of total soul connection thing. But on the internet. And we’d already been dating a while. But it was still completely and utterly special to me.

Where Love Meets The Sea
The day my Sage Man and I got engaged. In the ocean. As mer-people do.

Abundant Goddess: Sacred Pricing
I adored writing this guide to soulful pricing for your divine art, goodly goods and sacred services.

Creative Goddess Fear: But what if someone thinks my art/singing/tapdancing/creative magnificence thing sucks?
Yup. We went there. And we soul-spa-ed that Creative Goddess Fear into submission.

One Little No in a Sea of Yeses
Sometimes, all you need is a little reminder.

10 Ways to Fly beyond Creative Dream Fears & Frustrations
That’s a pretty comprehensive title right there. All I can add, is there is a pretty picture for it too. Oh, and that I wrote this list for myself when I was totally stuck in Creative-Frustration mud. I wrote it to find the rope out of it. And it worked, so I shared it. :)

Sacred Goddess: Accepting all parts of ourselves
We’re funny human beanies. With all kinds of incongruous parts. Parts that don’t make sense together. Parts that totally deserve to be love and accepted.

Healer Goddess artwork
Because inside each of us, there is a woman and an amazing healer.

And that was totally just ten posts there. Like I said, TAKE THAT numbers logic! We have no concern for you here in this happy-silly-art making-goddess temple!

I’m wishing you a ravishing, ridiculously good day,
