I feel as if I have been collecting all the precious art for this journey for several years. Here is my compass for the journey….one I created when I took the ARTbundance Creativity Coaches training from Marney Makridakis at www.artellawordsandart.com The compass helps me to stay focused on my vision and be in a state of gratitude as I move through all that I encounter on the journey. North is the direction of my authentic self, staying true to my goals and dreams my wild nature and asks “Does this decision line up with my true nature? East is the direction of the Echo Canyon, noticing what I am attracting to my life. Here I am asked, “Is this what I want to be attracting?” South is the direction of Service asking, “Is this how I want to make a difference?” West is the direction of Action and I am asked, “Does this action take me toward my vision?” Four elements are at the corners of the compass, reminding me of staying connected, trusting intuition, knowing I always have choices and balance each choice, action and movement with self care.
