I am doing Morning Pages, Julia Cameron’s creative process meant to open up blocks and invite inspiration……

I hate it. I suck at it…..I have not found a consistent stride.  I am supposed to write -with a pen and paper- 3 pages of stream of consciousness every morning….. I don’t even come close………

and I think it’s working…..

I woke up this morning all fired up……..

Have I mentioned that I actually hear messages?
Well, I do……. and this morning the message was:

“Sometimes you have to make the f**ing Chicken Soup”

My messengers are feisty like me.  They like the “f” word…..maybe a little too much, but it gets my attention.


for shits and giggles, I am sharing my actual writing. the colored words were added later in the morning after my first cup of coffee.

So I am lying in bed, slowly waking up and sitting with this message.

I know there is a pad of paper on my night stand.  I know I have 3 pages to write.  I really don’t want to do it.

I choose to just lay there thinking and breathing.

My knowing already KNOWS what the message means but my thinking brain wants to organize it so I can keep it……..so I can share it.

With a heavy sigh and blurry night veiled eyes, I grab pad and pen and start writing.

I can’t even see what I am writing.

I don’t really care.  It is captured before the inspiration fairies leave, taking their wisdom with them.


 

I am gratefully entrenched with communities who talk about BEing Love…Sending Love….Loving Everyone and everything……Loving You….Self-Love….Love is all there is……

Wendy LITTBIn honor of my late friend Rafael Bejarano (pictured above), I wrote a message of LOVE on my body for Love is the True Black and posted it all over social media.

……………….I think I meant it.

………………………….I KNOW I meant it, and I still do.

But this morning I needed more. This morning I was being called out to DO LOVE.

It is great to BE loving……actually, it is AWESOME to BE loving…… but is that really enough?

There is a fine line between BEing loving and BEing a love-filled passive blob to the people I cherish the most.

What is love without action?

I am reminded by the words written on Rafael’s arms……..”You Are Love in Action”

……..and this morning, I am remembering……

……..I am reminding YOU……………that sometimes we gotta SHOW UP and DO LOVE.

“Sometimes you have to make the f**ing Chicken Soup”

This blog is dedicated to my dear friend Rafael Bejarano, our “Chicken Shit Shaman”, who was killed in Egypt earlier this year.  I am pretty sure he was my messenger this morning.  His Chicken Shit theme was slightly modified to give me the kick in the butt that I needed.
