I am Cynthia Lee
I am unapologetically a spirit uncaged,
a woman on a quest to to live in rhythm with my Spirit wisdom
Spiritspeak is an interactive mini-journal that captures and reflects the guiding light of my creative and meditative practice. It is adorned with intuitive doodle art that I create as my prayer of sorts. I record words, quotes, questions and responses, statements, lyrics, prompts, lists, in a few small hand stitched pages. It is created small, to be a take along journal that can be slipped into a purse, glued or stapled into an existing journal, or used in any portable way imaginable.
You know who you are.
You are the one who is too much,
not enough, takes up all the air in the room,
and you are the one who has finally realized that those are some of the best things about you.
You are the one whose voice is rusty
from swallowing back the howl of your spirit
yet you are the one who tips her nose to the moon
and calls forth her spirit sisters.
You are the one who is done shrinking,
playing small, becoming less
and now you are the one stomping your spirit dance
upon the ground, arms wide open,
circling the fire,
casting your dreams to the stars.
You are me and I am you.
We are The Spirited Ones.
It is not enough to have this globe or a certain time, I will have thousands of globes and all time. ~~ walt whitman
