I am always on the lookout for little miracles that God sends us every day, but every once in a while one hits you like a pie in the face, refusing to be lightly contemplated.
Such a sign appeared to me this past Memorial Day weekend. My husband and I were sitting in the park, watching our kids throw pebbles into the stream, and talking about my business, Create-A-Way which I am now whole-heartedly working to be successful. What used to be a dream is now becoming a goal, basically.
We talked the whole time about my Create-A-Way business plans.
Before I get to the miracle part, I have to explain that the word “wonder” is a very meaningful word for me. I have been teaching a Signs and Wonders class that I want to revisit this summer and refresh with new ideas, and SARK gave me the nickname “Wendy Wondervision” during her Dream Boogie class series. I even Photoshopped my head on Wonder Woman’s body as a joke for my profile picture once.
Well, as our time at the park was coming to a close, I happened to look down under the picnic table we were sitting at, and noticed a flash of red. I GASPED as I looked more intently, reading the white letters written on this slip of red paper under our table.
It read: Wonder-Awe
I shrieked, “NO WAY!!”
David said, “Hmm… That’s pretty neat.”
Not sure how many people reading this will flip out like I did, but this piece of paper was the most surprising little gift for me. It was a note of validation from heaven. I’m very thankful, and “wonder-awed” about where the heck this slip of paper even came from. I Wonder about this paper’s history. A leftover from a workshop? Why was it at the park?
Anyway, it was a wonderful gift, and I am very grateful!
When something really intriguing and exciting comes my way, I feel compelled to share it. And this is one of those cases. I’m totally inspired by The Creating Time Mega Event…three FREE weeks of inspiration as people all over the world will come together and welcome the ending of time as we know it…and the beginning of an exhilarating new life!
The Creating Time Mega Event celebrates the release of the new book, Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life by ArtellaLand.com founder Marney K. Makridakis, and I am so excited and proud to be a contributor to this book!
The piece I created for this book represented the Kairos, which for me has to do with one of my favorite subjects, “Divine Timing.” I decided to do a mixed media piece that included a painting I did of an angel a while back and finally found a home for this angel! I plan to write more about this piece later.
The Creating Time Mega Event starts April 2, and features 25 amazing luminaries inviting us to “time travel” as a collective community to create a new paradigm of time.
Have you noticed that time is moving faster than ever these days? That it’s virtually impossible to engage in or observe any conversation that doesn’t somehow bring up “time” in a negative context? That “time” is the one thing that seems to hold most of us back from living the lives we were born to live? I see this all the time in my work, and I imagine that you do, too!
Now is the time for a new time! The Creating Time Mega Event and this exciting movement canchange the way we see and experience time forever.
The Creating Time Mega Event is FREE and it all starts April 2, 2012 and runs for three amazing, life-changing weeks. You’ll get inspiring live webinars, daily email inspiration, dynamic time-shifting games and challenges, a lively interactive community of fellow time-travelers, and so much more.
I am excited for the ways that this ongoing flow of innovative tools, techniques and ideas explored in this event will shift our experience of time forever. And on a personal level, I’m really excited to be part of this book and I appreciate your support of my contribution.

It’s amazing what comes about by simply checking out a lead from someone’s Facebook post. I was checking out Violette’s recent post about mapping and was intrigued by the image she drew. Had to check out the source of her inspiration that she posted and discovered this woman’s site, video, and book. I also learned about a form of illustration I didn’t know existed called Strategic Illustration. I find this SO inspiring.
What I love is that ANYONE can try this mapping technique on their own. I highly encourage watching this video and going to this link to sign up for Patti’s newsletter to get the free template for this activity. ENJOY! I plan on doing this myself and am looking forward to posting what I come up with!
Please try this out on your own!
I have to take a moment to promote this wonderful summit, led by creative wonder, Goddess Leonie Allen!
Sign up HERE for FREE. Wonderful audio and video inspirations that are great medicine for the creative soul!
I have been listening to the audios and have really been enjoying them. The audios and videos are such wonderful little gifts. If you have a job where you can work and listen to headphones at the same time (as an artist, it works for me), it’s perfect!!
MUCHO fun!!! Check it out!
Meeting Doreen Virtue at Cleveland's Journey Expo ~ September, 2011
I was so happy to meet and speak to Doreen Virtue at Cleveland’s 2011 Journey Expo. I brought my paperback copy of Divine Guidance for her to sign, one of my very favorite books. I told Doreen that it was a very important book to me. She looked at it, saying, “Wow, I haven’t seen this one for a while!” She seemed happy that it made an impact on me. I told her briefly how it helped launch my own new personal and spiritual journey.
Doreen Virtue’s Divine Guidance (along with Albert Gaulden’s Signs and Wonders) inspired the class I am currently teaching called “Signs and Wonders.” I am enjoying this so much! I really feel like I’ve found my own personal mission by teaching this class. So far I’ve taught it as a workshop at my retreats a few times, and as a teleclass earlier this year. Now I’ve been invited to teach it for Tri-C’s Senior Adult Education Program this Fall. I’m SO excited about being an “Instructor for Tri-C!” Whee!
This whole experience affirms my beliefs in the whole “Signs and Wonders” concept that I teach. I teach that God-signs are sent to us every day, but we need to learn to watch and listen for them – and then take the steps to follow them (the hardest part, which involves a strong dose of faith).
I have a self-study program offered on my website on this class and also have a downloadable illustrated “Signs and Wonders Journal.” Hoping to get another teleclass together after my Tri-C class is over. At the latest, I might get started with it in January, after the Holidays.
