I’m 60 years old and have just started my spiritual journey. Many years ago I was more open minded, curious and willing to learn. But through the years, having most of my relationships with non-spiritual people, I lost my devotion.
For a long time I’ve been feeling “broken”, critical of myself and others. I’m having a difficult time concentrating on my art, which is most disconcerting for me. I go through the day like a robot doing only what I’m supposed to do to get through. I feel lonely, unworthy, unproductive, forgetful and just plain depressed.
A few weeks ago I met some inspiring, creative women at a lunch party. They were all open to spiritual thinking and making it an every day part of their lives. I was so inspired by these women, so happy that I met them and look forward to our next meeting.
We eventually talked about some collages that the host of the party had. She called them SoulCollages®. They were passed around for us to observe. They were beautiful and inspiring, and there were many of them. All were 5″ x 8″ collages on mat board. I was most definitely intrigued. They were both creative and spiritual. I asked what SoulCollage® was and found out that one of the women at the party is a facilitator for SoulCollage®. She teaches workshops on how to make and do readings with the cards, using them like tarot cards. How brilliant, I needed to know more, and took her next workshop the following week.
I am fully ensconced in SoulCollage®. Developed by Seena Frost, SoulCollage® is a wonderful process of creating a set of cards which have deep personal significance, and gives you a creative way to access your true self. Utilizing images from magazines, books, and other materials, you make 5″ x 8″ cards using mat board as a substrate. I, of course, use 5″ x 7″ cards, because I have a need to be different. That in itself is a reflection of my true self!? Take a look at SoulCollage.com for more information on the whole card making process, and much, much more, you’ll be hooked for life.
Besides making and using the cards to find myself, I have recently started guided visual meditations to find my chakra animals. I’m using a CD by Seena Frost called “Introduction to SoulCollage®”. So far I’ve found three of my animals, for my first, fifth and third chakras.
