Discovering a new and wonderful part of your self.

Woodland fairy houses by laurierohner.com
Do you believe there is more?

There is not one thing more thrilling than discovering a new and wonderful part of your self. The familiar energy you feel when you meet an old friend again after years apart only to find you start up exactly where you had left off. Or the wild electrified yet peaceful energy of a hike or walk in the woods alone or with a friend, human or animal. For me the energy of nature has made a big play for my attention for some time and it is like an old friend coming back into my life, this time to stay. I am finding little treats gifts from fairies all around.

For the longest of time I have believed in realms that coexists to ours and fairies nymphs sprites and nature spirits travel back and forth. I also believe the bodies we see are not our true selves but the energy propelling us through the Universe trapped inside these vessels most definitely is who we are. Tap into the ancient energy flow that exists within all of us is the uniting thread between all things and between Spirit and Nature.

Fascinated with the realm of fairies, my creating woodland fairy houses is a gift of gratitude back to these wonderful beings many think of as being fantasy. I spend hours making and cutting the branches so they fit together with notches. Building with no plan but the inspiration nature and the energy coming from the branches provides and found items I have collected on my walks. Time disappears for me in the studio and I am blissfully content working.

If you have some time please come and visit my fairy house studio here at Laurie Rohner Studio. Briar, fairy consultant and dear friend. Tucker, my furry companion, and myself hope you enjoy the visit.

Quotes

Are you allowing abundance to appear in your life?

What better way could anyone spend money than back into the economy which gives more people work? What you call your economy is the exchange of human Energy. And so, think back a few hundred years about what your economy was in this nation. And what has changed? Have more resources been trucked in from other planets? Or have more people, over more time, just identified more things that they desire — and the Nonphysical Energy that is endless and infinite supplies that? We never hear any of you say, “Well, I have been well for so many years, that I’ve decided that I’m going to be sick for a while to allow some other people to be well.” Because you know that whether you’re well or not doesn’t have anything to do with them not getting enough wellness. You’re not using up the wellness and depriving them of it. And it is the same thing with the abundance. People that have managed to find vibrational harmony with abundance, so that it is flowing to them and through them — are not depriving anyone else of that abundance.

—Abraham

I love that image of trucks appearing from other worldly planets bringing more ‘stuff’ because we here want more ‘stuff’. I also have often thought if the economy is shrinking than where is the stuff going? Could it be just a misconception by humans? I am slowly believing that attitude has to change in every person alive. Think of how many us suffer because we think someone else has more and we need to redistribute the wealth and get our fair share. What a ridiculous assumption? We have the precise amount we think we should have. We the individual create that feeling or vibration. Eliminate the need to have more replacing that need with a thought of how would I feel if with no attachment and watch what will happen. What you receive may be so much more than what you thought you needed in the beginning.

Quotes

I would rather be a superb meteor.

“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”
~Jack London

There was a time when I delighted in sitting in a hot tub in New Jersey. One night while relaxing across the night sky shot a ball of fire, a superb meteor a fiery blaze of large spectacular beauty. I can still see it vividly in my mind’s eye.  In all its wonder did the Universe put on a show just for me. I never heard or read anything about a meteor which I thought how could anyone miss it but not one word said or written. Maybe it was a private showing?

Decide what your highest priorities are and have courage.

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things.  And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.  The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’”  Stephen Covey, best-selling author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

All my life I have heard how lucky I was to be an artist. I hated hearing those words because the words belittle the work of any creative being. Knowingly or not people who work in the creative fields tend to have low self-esteem, constantly seeking out affirmation that there work, which for many artists there soul expression, matters. Artists seek confirmation in various ways and often those ways come up short. What I have learned is to decide if your work is important to you and are you doing everything you can to produce the best work every time you create. If so then the next step is to mark your highest priorities and have the courage your soulful true self knows what it is doing.

Having faith in the world or in your religious belief is fine but knowing the big yes inside on an intimate level is everything. The divine universe requires nothing but a decision and a plan for you to achieve everything. Being good enough is not an option in my life anymore but being the ‘best’, I am sweetly smiling. This does not mean I am the best at what I do but I do the best I can for myself every time. Saying no when you know that one thing does not fit your priorities in your life. Instead of blindly looking at the IPad or talking to a friend via the Smartphone say no and work at you and your life. You are worth the effort and you are the only one who is the best at being you.

So why did I hate hearing how lucky I was to be an artist? Because it is easy to give up and follow the norm in life, get a real job, work every day mindlessly, get married, have the kids, and you can always paint as a hobby. No I cannot and I tried for years to do just that, failing miserably. I work very hard at my job. This is not easy. This is not fun. This IS fulfilling and purposeful work. Many years of study is applied to a creative work.  Art is serving the soul in each of us. Art speaks to the soul and through the soul it speaks to all creation. It is why people say his or her work speaks to me. I work to feed the creative energy shared by all things. That is the burning ‘yes’ inside every creative person. My work matters, and your work matters. Remember when you head off to the office or to the studio or to the kitchen to tend to your family to do your absolute best and never less. Not THE absolute best, YOUR absolute best.

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.
