Fire Transformation

Hola gorgeous Goddesses,

Thank you for all your emails asking if I’m okay. I am.

My beautiful country of Australia is undergoing a huge transformation by fire. These fires are centred in Victoria, a few hundred kilometres from here. Australia is a land of regeneration and transformation. Our whole ecological system requires bushfires for many native plants to bloom and seed. Bushfires are a part of our life, our land, our seasons, our cycles.

A week ago, my love & I were standing in the garden at sunset as we do, watching the sunflowers grow. Up on the hill we watched the lights turn on in houses, one by one, street by street. And then we saw a thin plume of smoke, which quickly turned thicker, and then black. I called emergency, for the first time in my life. We watched as a house burned to the ground on the hill. Our skin prickled. It felt like transformation. It felt big and deep. It felt like Goddess Kali dancing her dance of destruction in the suburbs.

Two days later, I walked the mountain to see the house. Across the street, there stood a soft old crone. She told me softly she was glad the house was gone, how the energy of the street was better now the occupants were gone. How she was safer now. It felt like there was a reason Goddess Kali chose that home to dance through.

Sometimes its easy to understand why Great Spirit works as it does.

Sometimes it is not. I don’t know why so many people and animal souls are being called home through fire right now, just that they are. I don’t know why so much has been transformed.

What I do know is the best I can do is have faith, trust, pray, send love, send energy and give thanks. And the best I can also do is to not worry, not watch too much TV about it, and not get embroiled in it. In the present moment, all is well in my soul, and all around me. It doesn’t gift this world for me to worry about it. It gifts this world for me to come from a place of joy and peace, and give positive, shifting, meaningful energy.

I donate.

I pray.

And I live, love and give as passionately, positively and joyously as I can.

That’s the best we can do in this world.

If you are called to contribute energy in a positive way to uplift, one of the best ways is to give money-energy to helping people souls through the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal, or animal souls through RSPCA Victoria. They will help in the process of supporting, healing, nurturing and uplifting all those souls who’ve been touched by this big transformation.

And if you’re not called, that is perfect too. It’s all about following the call of our spirits, and living our most beautiful, empowered, joyful, precious lives.

Biiiiiiiggest hugs,

P.S. You are so loved.

Creative Goddess Sunday: Sonya and Ben Soul Story

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

It’s Sunday… so that means Creative Goddess Sunday!
{when I remember to/am not otherwise mermaid-ing it up in the closest pool}.

Actually, I managed to mermaid it up today in mermaid twinny Kaylia‘s new pool… but managed to get home in time to share some Creative Goddess goodnesses with you.

On Creative Goddess Sundays I get to share with you some of my creations, and you of course can share yours in the Comments Circle if you’re called. Ok? Hurrah! 🙂


I wanted to share a little something different with you today… an engagement/wedding Soul Story custom artwork. I so love doing these! This was created for my darling friend Sonya and her heart-man, Ben. I feel like you guys KNOW Sone as I’ve blogged about her so much. I blogged the weekend we met at my inner marriage ceremony in two parts. I’ve blogged about our magical weekends together. I’ve blogged about us meeting Louise Hay. I’ve blogged about manifesting trips to see Sone. I’ve blogged on her birthday. She’s been a muse for me. She’s my right hand goddess at my retreats. She’s a dear friend to me and my love. And she’s Charlie the Happy Healer Dog’s One True & Deep Soul Love Mate. (It’s true. It’s just a little bit bizarre how much he is obsessively adoring of her).

And I blogged about meeting Sone’s true love for the first time.

Late last year, my love & I drove to Sydney to watch her marry her true love.

So I painted her a Soul Love Story artwork. To make art and words that celebrate all Sone is, and the amazing love she shares with her Ben.

I’m so joyful to share this with you… the art and words and photos and memories and love…
you’ve been along on the Soul Story of meeting and loving Sone, and then meeting and loving Ben…
and it just feels ridinkulously complete and precious that I can share this art & new part of the soul love story with you. 🙂

Life is one big, juicy miracle.

Wishing you one big, juicy day, Goddesses!
Love,

Creative Goddess: But what happens if *I* don’t like my art

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Today I wanted to talk about a question. A big one.

When we did our Soul Spa series, we had a healing soak about our fears about other people not liking our art.
And then someone asked: But what happens if *I* don’t like my art?

So I made a video about it.
Because it’s ultra hot and I can’t type.
But I have lots to share!

You are so loved,
Goddess Leonie

What’s new, and what you can expect…

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Hurrrrrrah! We made it! Goddess Guidebook style!
It’s been such a big journey to get this beautiful Goddess sailing ship happening, and I’m about a thousand percent relieved that it’s now on the sea, filled with goddesses, just as it should be.

I wanted to share a little about why I’ve created Goddess Guidebook and what I’m dreaming for it.

So, why the change?

Good question! I decided to change from GoddessLeonie.com to GoddessGuidebook.com for two reasons: one practical, one hippy.

1.} Here’s the practical reason: Not many people can spell Leonie. It’s true. I’ve seen Lione, Leohni, Lioni and all manner of other wordology. And that’s just from people who’ve known me for years.  I really wanted to create a safe, gorgeous, vibrant space for goddesses to hang out. And if they can’t remember the intricate spelling of my somewhat exotic name, that’s way too exclusive. I want it to be easy and joyful and good and fun. For all of us.

2.} Here’s the non practical more ethereal energy-like reason: I didn’t want it to be all about me anymore. This isn’t about me just sharing my artwork anymore (though that was perfect while it was  like that). I just kept getting this vision that I needed to build something bigger. I kept saying I needed to create a “bus” for all my dreams and visions to fit within that was big enough to have space for all the Goddesses along on the ride. I wanted to create a big piece of transport that we could move within and move forward on. When I found GoddessGuidebook.com, it felt big enough. For me to do what my spirit calls me to do, and in turn support other Goddesses in doing what their spirit calls them to do. Lately it feels like it’s moved more from a bus into a ship – but regardless, the energy-idea of it is the same: a big vehicle for us to be moved by. Hurrah!

So what can you expect in the future?

There’s a couple of changes I’m making.

First, some changes to stuff I already do.

I’m going to close enrolments to the Creative Goddess e-Course & Circle at the end of this week. The e-Course will be offered as a self-run course kit by March. If you’re thinking about enrolling, you can enrol now and get access to the Circle, and download all the course materials to keep and use as you like. You’ll be able to enrol until Friday. Questions? Just email me and I’ll try and help.

I’m putting up the prices of Soul Story custom artworks and Goddess in You artworks. What this means for you: by putting up their prices, I can dedicate even more spirited energy into them. I want to make them super special. Beyond special. Simply sacred. What this also means for you: If you find yourself going “Gah! I was just thinking of getting one! Nooo! Price change!”, order on the old pages over at GoddessLeonie.com before I forward everything here in the next couple of days. Just telling ya the secret squirrely Goddess way coz I love ya 😉

I’m also going to outsource the printing of the Goddess Leonie Art Prints. The Etsy store will be closed down when I get a moment to scratch my sweet self, and I’ll be setting up shop at RedBubble. Why am I doing this? Because I’m too wild busy at the moment. I want to continue offering the Goddess art prints while still having time to help more goddesses AND have a really happy balanced life. What this means for you: You won’t get a handwritten note from me when you order a print. Boo! But you will get to choose much more options for your print. Hurrah!

New gorgeous things.

Goddess Guidance sessions
I’m now offering these oracle & reading sessions regularly. I’ve been doing them with VIP Creative Goddesses and have been blown away by the spirit and power and connection that’s been happening within them. They are a blend of an oracle card reading with Goddess coaching, and give you a whole golden hour of finding clarity and the Goddess in You for your journey.

More courses
Stay tuned on this… I’ve got bundles of ideas on new, soulful courses to offer for your Goddess journey. Hurrah!

In other news…

I’ve become a liiiittle addicted to making videos on 12seconds.tv. Have you noticed? I’m just really digging sharing my day in a 12 second little snippet. Even if it does take me about 36 seconds of takes to speak fast enough. Hee hee hee 🙂

Okay gorgeous Goddesses ~ I hope this all makes gorgeous & wonderful sense for you, and resonates with you. As always, if you have any questions or sharings, the Comments Circle is always open for you.

I’m just so glad to share with you all these beautiful changes…
and am so blessed to share this journey with you…

From the Goddess in Me,
to the Goddess in You,
OPA!

Love,

A Beautiful Sailing Ship.


Being a Goddess Ship Captain on 12seconds.tv

Hola dear ones,

It’s a Sunday. No, a Monday. This has been the wildness of my life lately, tangled and busy and consumed. I’m slowly making space in my life where I can be breathed. Slowly finding the structure I need to float this sailing boat of my dreams. I keep asking the good questions of myself: What do I need now? What will help? What support do I need?

What has been coming up for me was I needed to launch this website. Two months ago I hired a web designer to help me find the colours and the look of this big sailing boat. It was supposed to be launched into the beautiful blue waters on January 1. It wasn’t, and my designer went MIA. It’s now a month on, and I’ve been struggling, stressing, handing it over to the angels and finding some kind of acceptance.

Yesterday, after sitting with my fairy in the garden (more on her later, she’s a new friend), I decided I was just going to Do It Anyway. It was that feeling of no longer placing my destiny and journey in the hands of another, and steering my sailboat where I needed to go. A day and a half later, we have a website. Hurrah! I heart me some taking-the-reins and Doing It Anyway! Even when it’s not perfect. Even when it’s still being fine tuned. It’s my not-so-little dream come true!

It’s still a little bit flopsy, and there’s still a couple of pages missing, but it’s here. Our beautiful dream boat has arrived, and I’m so heart-glad to invite you on board. It’s a wooden sailing boat with blue and white sails billowing in the breeze, large cushions resting on the board for you to sit and watch the seas and sky from. There is a mermaid sculpture at the head of the ship. There are prayer flags flying down the sides. Down below there are some rooms that are still being furnished, but they’ll be exquisite too – even more places for you to explore, be comfortable and find what you need in. I feel like this will be a sailing ship for each of us to be the Goddess we are, and be who we were born to be.

I feel like we should have a launching party… crack open some green glass bottles of soda water and mango frappes. As I’m going through an extra-passionate-about-Cupcakes-phase, there will be some of those too. Mostly, I just want you to feel at home. That you are welcome here, with all your pieces and parts and unique beauty. I’m so glad you are here!

So, dearest Goddesses, welcome to…

HRGS (Her Royal Goddess’ Ship) Goddess Guidebook.

May her journey, and all of our journeys, be filled with laughter, spirit and magnificence.

Love,

The Goddess Captain,

P.S. If you find things out of place or a wee bit janky, you can let me know here. It’ll take a little while to get everything totally in order, but this sailing boat wanted to sail, baby!
