Dear Diary…Day 16…of the 27 things in 27 days challenge….

Sometimes I talk to myself.  In my head, out loud when nobody else is around, on paper.

About 7 years ago, I started doing some automatic writing.  Hey!  If I’m going to talk to myself, I might as well get some answers, right?

As I’ve been going through paper clutter, and noticing the shifts that I am experiencing after I’ve shredded it, I came across something that I had written in 2009.  I thought that I would share it, as it just might strike a cord with someone.

I didn’t know it at the time, but these writings were coming from my Higher Self.  Everyone has a Higher Self.  I think meditation has helped to still the mind, so that I can do this.  Anyone can do this.  The Higher Self, or Inner Guides will never say anything mean or negative, but will only give deep wisdom, and gentle guidance.

What do I need to do to get out of my own way?

Clear clutter from your environment.

The energy in my house seems to be weighing me down.  I feel overwhelmed and helpless, and afraid.

Let it go – go within until all hurts are dissolved in the One.  Clear it out ( the clutter). Make your clearing. It will come soon – the information you are seeking.  Work with Love. Be Spontaneous.

I don’t want to make anymore mistakes.  I’ve suffered too much.  I want to be free.  I feel so sorry for any pain I may have caused others.

What can I do to reconcile these things that I’ve created out of my own ignorance?

You are on the right path.  For every good you do, there will be some improvement, as you affect others with your peace and kindness, this will prevent others from making the same mistakes  ie. the ripple effect.

What happened with me when the riches were being handed out? What about the “Do what you love, the money will follow” concept?  I feel like I was overlooked!

Please be patient.  Your life is not over yet!  You have much to give.  In only a little while, you will see. 

I want my children to be happy.  I feel so sad when I see them hurting themselves.  I feel responsible for them, and feel like a failure as a mother, like I didn’t teach them enough love, or give them enough love.  What can I do now that they’re grown?

It’s not your fault.  It is their Karma to work out their lives.  They have chosen to go through these circumstances for their own growth.  You have been a good mother, and have made much progress in teaching your family some core values. They may not always listen, so don’t be dismayed.  You have done the best you could, under the circumstances.

Thank you for settling these concerns for me.  Om Shanti Om

Peace and Blessings on you!

Thank you!  I feel better now, and much calmer.


Cottage Mavens,

As we go through this task of removing, touching, cleaning 27 items each day for 27 days, I just want you to realize that you are not alone, and that miraculous things are coming your way!

Whether you call it Feng Shui, Vastu, or Spring Cleaning, it will work just the same!

It’s a natural law of the Universe in action!


IMG_3011Last night, I had a conversation with my sister.  She told me that she had just purchased a dollhouse for herself from Ikea.  When I asked her if she had any furniture for it, she said that there was a fabric baby squirrel making it’s home in it.


I knew at that moment, where all of the doll furniture that I had been painting should go!

Just one more photo shoot!   So, I packed up 31 items of doll furniture that she had given me when she moved to Oregon in 2011.  It’s been upcycled, refurbished, and restyled.   And I’ll be sending it out to her this week.

Now, she has been doing the 27 day challenge along with all of us.  I would say that this just might be one miracle that was waiting to happen for her.

That just makes me smile!

Begin to weave, and God will give the thread!

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.

  1. Beautiful. Love that you’re passing that onto your sister when she really needs it. 🙂Automatic writing is powerful, thanks for sharing your past words with us.


    1. She reads my posts, but I’m hoping it will be a surprise for her. I just mailed it today. She is 5 years older than me. When I was little she would give me endless pony rides on her back. She still lets me sit on her lap every once in a while. She’s a great sister.

  2. Your journey is powerful and inspiring to those of us who are also still finding our way. Thank you for gently blazing the trail. Even though we may be walking different paths, so much of the way is similar. ❤
