The SoulCollage® Ocean

girl ocean wadingWhenever I lead an Introduction to SoulCollage® Workshop, participants are thrilled with their first card and eager to know more. When I was first starting out, I would try to explain all the wonders of SoulCollage® that awaited them, during that first class. As you can imagine, that got quite frustrating!

Let’s face it, there is a lot that awaits us if we take SoulCollage® by the hand and allow it to lead us. There’s journaling, getting to know our inner voices, learning about archetypes, doing readings, discovering animal guides, deepening our relationship with community . . . The list goes on!

Nowadays I tell excited newcomers that the process of SoulCollage® is like the ocean and what they have done by making their first card is merely to dip their big toe into the water. If you’re still new to SoulCollage® you can probably identify with this. If you’ve been practicing it for a while, think back to that very first workshop you took, the first card you made. You got one toe wet . . . and then . . . you wanted more! So you took another class, made some more cards, found our Kindred Spirits community (see link below) online, learned how to dialog with your cards, made some more cards, did a reading, and so on.

You waded into the infinite waters of SoulCollage®. Some of you are still wading, on the ocean’s edge. Some of you are now knee deep, and some are already swimming. Many of you have even set sail for deeper waters and are scuba diving, way down deep. You can choose to only skim the surface, or you can decide to dive down deep. Once you have been diving for a while, you can choose to skim the surface again if you want to. There are no rules. It’s all about the exploration!

There are no limits to the gifts this SoulCollage® Ocean will give us, no limit to the depths we can explore within its reaches. If you think of it this way, you’ll be more patient with yourself, and you’ll give yourself all the time you need to explore. There is no need to rush.

Think about your journey with SoulCollage® up to now as a visit to the ocean. Where are you in relation to the “waters” of SoulCollage®? Write about this in your journal.

Give yourself permission to be where you are as you explore the SoulCollage® Ocean. Remember, it’s not a contest; it’s a journey.
