One March day, I asked my boys to give me an animal. An animal I could draw! I didn’t know what I was asking at the time but it ended up creating deep conversation and insight about animals between my boys and I.
Here is how it unfolded in pictures drawn by moi in my day planner and the subsequent research that I did on the spiritual and biblical significance of each animal. The most divine aha for me was that every animal the boys suggested on each day met me exactly where I was at on that day! I wonder which animal will land on you today? May we all continue to be open to God around and within us.
May these words and imagines encourage you to be open to the divinity of children, the soulfulness of drawing and the power of words that tumble in our heads and out of our mouths.
Show up as the animal you want to be today!
In one moment, things can flip from flabbergasted to “aha I get it!” Today, that shift happened for me.
All week, I have been praying and setting the intention for ‘depth of insight’ on six things:
🏠 Our Home
😘 Sexy Neck, Steve
⛷ Apex Mountain
👱🏻♂️ My dad
🥛 My business
💥 My brand (how I want to show up in the world!)
Every day I have been writing at the top of my planner these goals for this week. Today, when I sat with my pen and planner, I realized that I wasn’t searching for depth of insight but more of a deep knowing. I wrote this down:
Then, in the next moment as I sat with my pen in my hand with my thoughts tumbling around my hamster brain, I decided to draw a lion. I drew this lion and then decided to google what the lion in the bible and spiritual realm represents. Can you guess?
DEEP KNOWLEDGE! 💥💥💥
Hearth of God
Be open to signs and wonders that show you that you are on your path.
Be open to flipping from flabbergasted in one ‘aha’ moment over words and a lion.
Be open to staying positive that your personal answers will come.
Be open to the still small voice that asks you to draw a lion.
Now, off to sit in this deep knowing with gratitude for this beautiful planner I get to write in every day. Thank you to my beautiful friend Miriam for giving it to me and for the amazing Vancouverite Danielle Laporte for creating this divine gift in my life.
