Is your spiritual catcher’s mitt on?

“Art and music are two of the most powerful healing forces in the universe. I mean, have you ever gone to a museum and stood in front of a Vermeer and just had tears roll down your cheeks? That doesn’t happen when people stand in front of First National Bank.”—Rosanne Cash

quotes-creativity-robert-bresson-949x534Readers who love my law of attraction books seem surprised. Why are you writing about creativity?

Here’s the short answer. To practice creativity is to tap into the energy that underpins the entire world. There’s something mystical at the center of art.

Roseanne Cash once told an interviewer that she doesn’t write songs so much as she catches them. She even joked that if she didn’t have her catcher’s mitt ready, Lucinda Williams, another amazing songwriter, might just snag one of her songs.

And that’s really what my new book, Art & Soul, Reloaded, is about. It’s about getting ourselves ready to field the Divine. About listening for songs, stories and inspiration that will right the listing ship.

I’m uninterested in catching material stuff. I have more than I could ever need. Instead, I want to catch big, generous, buoyant ideas.

And that’s why I’m currently blogging every day. I’m out here in left field with my catcher’s mitt on, snagging ideas.

I’m faithfully here, looking towards the light, waiting for my next assignment.

I also want to share a couple photos from people who have taken to heart my Zumba for the Soul assignment to find an outrageous outfit at a thrift store.

It’s becoming a thing.

I’d love to see your photos. Post them here or on FB or Instagram.

It’s an effective rehearsal for Life Rule #62: Quit taking yourself so seriously.

  1. When I found out Tuesday was International Prirate’s Day (arrh, arrh, me hearties!) I wanted a parrot to celebrate. 30 seconds later, scrolling down my FB feed, there was a message from Lulu with a big parrot – “my sense of self-worth supports my ability to attract abundance into my life.”

  2. Pure joy! Thank you💕

  4. That’s one heck of a stylish frankfurter, ma’am. All it needs is a tux. Also loving and agreeing with your whole post – gonna go get myself a mitt, write a story and make a book-cover right now!
