Hi, my glitter gypsies! How are you today? I am very well, thank you! I want to send out a BIG MAHALO to all of the beautiful women & girls who attended my 1st retreat of the Fall Series on 9/10/11! We had a terrific time & everyone left with a finished Mandala that they all really loved! It was so fascinating to watch while each person created something from their own heART, not really knowing the outcome, but trusting in the process. Lots of support & inspiration were flowing freely & lovingly. The Mandalas all turned out very differently, reflecting the personal journeys that each person was on.

We began in a Ritual, known as “the Red Thread Ceremony.” Many years ago, my teacher, mentor & artist extraordinaire, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, introduced me to this ritual & passed it on to me to share with even more women. It is a way of creating a vessel, or sacred space, to hold all of us safely in the arms of freedom to create that which is wanting to be expressed, even if we’re not sure exactly what that is. It was a beautiful & blessed day, to be sure.

Again, I would like to thank all of the women & girls who joined me on 9/10/11! Which brings me to the next workshop on 10/01/11, 10:30-5:30 again. This time, we will be creating 3-dimensional shrines (or memory boxes.)An amazing workshop that you won’t want to miss!!! Just go to the Home Page & click on Personal Shrines & Memory Boxes button & all of the details are there. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Sign up early, & get a discount + save your spot! Hope to see you there!!!

P.S. Within the next few days, I will be posting A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT/OPPORTUNITY! It is very exciting how the Universe plopped this into my lap, as I am open & flowing & following my heART , even if I’m not sure where it’s leading me…… Mahalo…..Glitter Gypsy

Hi, everybody! Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!
Where do I begin? It has just been a whirlwind of activities, experiences, highs, lows, & everything in between for the past 2 months.
I have been riding high on my puffy, glittery clouds way up in the stratosphere for the past few months, on my journey to my reality, & having loads of fun along the way. My amazing trip to Mexico & CA, as well as putting on “The Women’s Spiritual Creativity Retreat” in Hawaii from April 8-10, 2011 really had me on a high of doing the type of work that I really want to be doing in my life. Everything went so smoothly, was rewarding & fun & left me with a huge dose of self-confidence to continue forward on this journey.
As I said earlier, I returned from Mexico, reunited with my family, & spent time with them reconnecting for several days. The following weekend was the retreat I had been planning on the North Shore of Oahu. So, with all of my goods packed up in the “gypsy wagon,” I embarked on my next adventure.
Drove up to the North Shore of Oahu (the island where I live) to the beautiful, magical “Benedictine Monastery of Hawaii,” where I would be spending the next several days. I checked into my room, with the adjoining suite, where the actual activities would be happening. Fine-tuned the schedule, & placed a copy in everyone’s room. I decorated the room with brightly colored scarves & tapestries, lit lots of candles, & scattered my artwork throughout the room to “set the tone.”
The guests began arriving one by one, checking into their private rooms, settling in, eating, attending prayer vigils, and the like, before we were to meet in the “suite” for opening Red Thread Ceremony.
Alas, we began. We passed the red thread of connection & spoke a bit about ourselves & why we were here. After having connected, we all went to our rooms for sleep, meditation, or contemplation, (whatever was needed for each individual.)
The next day, we met again to begin creating our own personal nichos– Mexican tin & glass alters, or shrines, to work on whatever was on our heart that weekend. Everyone was successful, receiving clarity & enlightenment in physical form, in what they had created. Openings & illuminations poured forth from the nichos AND the women. We continued our work on Sunday, & had our closing ceremony mid-afternoon. We all shared & cried & laughed about our experiences that weekend. No one left feeling empty or unenlightened. It was a magical experience, & I thank all of the participants, as well as the Benedictine Community for sharing a bit of themselves with me.
Which, brings me to the title of this post. Please check out cosmiccowgirlsmagazine.wordpress.com for the latest article, featuring moi, Glitter Gypsy, written by the amazingly talented Elizabeth Gibbons, Queen of Glitter, to learn more about me & what I’m up to!
Thank you, Elizabeth, Shiloh, & all of the amazing women behind this magazine, for the honor of being featured this month….. And for the privilege of working with you

She Follows Her Heart Shrine

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know that for some of us this day is very romantic, exciting, hot, loving…. I also know that for many more of us, it is depressing, disappointing, lonely, & vulnerable-feeling.

What I would like to propose for everyone is that it simply be a day for LOVE. And, no, you don’t have to fall into the media’s stereotypical image of love, which usually involves lots of candlelight, diamonds, sexy lingerie, kissing….et al, which is actually very beautiful & fabulous if you have it!!! It’s wonderful. However, life is not always in that spot for us on Feb. 14 & I’m here to say that that’s OK.

What I would like to offer to you is that the idea of LOVE can be more than just romantic love. There are all kinds of love available. There’s Mother-Love (& Father-Love,too.) There’s friendship love, animal love, volunteering love, family love, children’s love, spiritual love & so many, many more types of  love, the most important one, in my opinion, being SELF-LOVE. Because once you have that, no one can take that away from you!  And, yes, I know that that is not always the easiest of things to do. “I feel guilty; I don’t have time, that’s selfish, there’s too much to do, I’m too fat, I’m not worth it”, and on and on and on. But again, once we learn to accept ourselves, exactly as we are today, in this body, this skin-type, this neighborhood, this LIFE, we can begin, if only just begin ,to truly love ourselves. You know, Our Divine Creator made us one-of-a-kind–there’s no one else in the world exactly like us? One of my favorite quotes, by Oscar Wilde, is: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

And so today, on this Valentine’s Day of love, if you have someone, anyone, to love & to be loved by, take it….appreciate it. And if you don’t, (and you probably do if you really think about it,) just give out a little bit extra….. first to yourself, & then to somebody else. I guarantee you’ll feel better after you’ve done it! Love makes the world go ’round……..so don’t save it all up, there’s plenty more where that came from! Just do it!!! Show up for your beautiful life, & sprinkle glitter as you’re doing it (no one can resist glitter–trust me; I know! After all, I AM the GLITTER GYPSY!)

Love & Peace to all of my followers!

Luv,

Glitter Gypsy
