Angry People. Stay calm and keep on walking.

Think of a peaceful place and let the anger go.

Let me share a story with you.

Yesterday an email hit my inbox from Etsy. It was for a custom order. I opened the email and found this young women ranting with profanity about how I had sent her a twitter feed and to stop it. Now I admit I don’t know how things work but I do know that this was her issue – not mine. I replied back explaining I had nothing to do with her feed being filled up with my etsy posts – 5 to be exact –  and she was not to contact shop owners through the custom order request. I said I was sorry this happened and wish her a better day. She then shot me another scathing email how she has reported me to twitter – hum don’t understand why – and that she is not the one responsible for this problem. I received 3 more irrational emails from this young lady. I did not reply because this would only feed her irrational rantings. Instead I sent an email to etsy about her with the emails she had sent and I blocked her from my twitter feed. Finally I sent her an email and told her what has happened thus ending her rants.

A few hours have passed, why did this person do this? I pondered that thought and believe that she was attracted in some way to my energy.

Do you think thoughts have energy?

Considering what is happening in my life and the way I was feeling about myself I can understand my part in this story. Though I did not see it in the beginning I have to thank this young women for showing me how my thinking had become negative and self doubting. I had opened the door and allowed that energy in – the door now shut I move on.


There is nothing wrong in protecting yourself against abusive people and reporting them when they act out. This is a consequence of their negative thinking, their thoughts or their mental energy. What is needed is taking responsibility for your part – unwanted yes – learning from this marvelous lesson and letting it go with light and love.

As an artist you are in contact with many different people and I try to accommodate my customers with respect. I give my full focus to the project at hand. Since I feel creative energy is infused into any creative work I am mindful of my thoughts while creating. How can you do your best work if you are at the mercy of negative people and negative thinking? I don’t see how you can. Look at the circumstances and then let the thoughts and people go. Then get back in the studio and create.

Have fun!

Do you feel like clouds in a windy sky?

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”

It has been some time that I headed into the studio to do work with my favorite beings, fairies. My life has been much like a cloud on a windy day shooting across the sky while the lower clouds move slower. Life is like that with different layers and when you stare up at the different layers you can become disoriented and unbalanced because your perception is distorted. If you force your eyes to concentrate on the images in the sky, you become conscious of their shapes and colors. Now you stop swaying and feel balanced. I focused on the images and colors discovering my focus was off, making me into a spinning whirlwind of chaotic feelings of fear, anxiety and doubt.

I needed to stop what I was doing and look at the information right in front of me. What was it saying? Think about your own life and why are you scattered like a cloud on a windy day. I had an image of who and what I thought I was and found out I was working and doing what someone else had said I should do. You’re a doctor but you really wanted to be a vet or you are working in an office when all you want to do is travel and see the world. Somewhere I can bet someone planted the idea of what you should do and you unconsciously followed the suggestion.

Everyone needs to look at their own situations with an open mind. Only you can decide if it is a tape someone planted in your head or is it you just have not given it your all.
Our lives are full of experiences and they all lead up to fixed moments in time. No matter how we arrive there we will eventually arrive. I think these are one of the times in my life where every task and every creation I have made has brought me to this point.

The other night I dreamed of a world in the lush forest where beings of light lived. I felt very much at home and safe there. I was finding an answer to questions I was having about my work. I work everyday creating but not selling much, this saddens me and I can feel myself fill with anxiety. In this wonderful lush woodland I found calm loving energy and it I felt it was a place I knew and could call home. When I woke this feeling stayed with me which for me is unusual, I do not usually remember dreams. Since this dream I have been a mad woman creating woodland fairy houses and fairy furniture. They seemed to flow from me in a creative burst. They all took on their own lives. It is a fabulous feeling to be in the flow of creative energies.

This is what I have created so far and you can of course buy my fairy houses at Laurie Rohner Studio or at Between The Weeds Etsy Shop.
