Looking Back Only As Needed

Looking back Is an exercise of re-imagining An examination of story That can trap you in old patterns Or release you into your future self So do it like a sea gull While walking forward Look back only as needed To determine what is wanted. The other day, as I walked down the trail at the local bay lands bird sanctuary, I noticed the seagulls had come in and were hanging out. They were swooping about in that way they have, then coming...

The Fine Art of Asking

Every time I create, I set intention. And then I ask. This asking is a key part of what we do in the Intentional Creativity movement. When we ask, we open a doorway in our heart for messages, inspiration and wonder to come through. But often I get asked…. What is this asking we do? How do we ask? How do we know when we’ve been answered? As one of the Art Doctors supporting our Color of Woman students, this question of asking...

Exercising Your Driver. Properly.

by Annette Wagner, M.A. I’ve had a small problem lately. You see, I’ve always had a strong driver side to my personality. You may have one too – our driver side is the one who jumps right in and takes charge and says ok, what are we doing here? And begins to organize, create, assert herself, and generally get things done and whether you like it or not tends to be the operative mode.  My problem is: What do I do when I have...

The Curmudgeon Storyteller

by Annette Wagner, M.A.  In the Cosmic Cowgirls community we know about stories. We know how stories run your life without you even knowing about it. We know how to pull stories out of us, intentionally, and put them on canvas where we use paint and words to transform them into stories that support and heal us – instead of running our lives into the muck. Stories are like stardust and we have no hesitation getting our hands...
