Elephants - Companion SoulCollage Card

Root Chakra -- I am the one who is grounded in family, who is strong and unmoveable or fierce when need be. I am social, and like to be around others.

According to a website, I also found that the root chakra is associated with --
Color: Red
Sense: Smell
My subconscious must be working overtime!

Here's some other info from the Brofman Foundation for the Advancement of Healing website about the root chakra: Security, survival, trust, the relationship with money, home, job. Ability to be grounded, to be present in the here and now. Ability to allow one's self to be nourished, in the sense of allowing one's Inner Being to be satisfied. This chakra also reflects a person's connection with their mother, and with Mother Earth. How the person feels about being on the earth. Connection with the physical body.

Kookaburra - Companion SoulCollage Card

Inspired by the children's song:

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra
Gay your life must be

Not sure which chakra this one connects with yet, but it is full of happy energy.

Inner Leader - Council SoulCollage Card

This is one of the archetypes I've indentified after ready Caroline Myss's book Sacred Contracts. I am the one who chooses the path, sets the direction, and shows the way. I have vision from a high vantage point and knows which way to go. ARCHETYPE

Inner Athlete - Committee SoulCollage Card

I've rarely identified myself as an athlete since I haven't been "muscular" in a very long time, but I think there are times that my inner athlete really wants to come out of the closet. So this card sort of came together of its own accord to honor this neglected side of myself.

Inner Child - Council SoulCollage Card

This is a photo of me when I was little more than a year old. I am the one who wants to play, is innocent and optimistic. I am waiting for you to let me out. ARCHETYPE

Saint Michael - Community SoulCollage Card

. . . of the gondola. How appropriate as Valentine's day approaches.

Italy - Sacred Places SoulCollage Card

The many faces of Italy. As I plan my next journey, Italy has been on my mind almost constantly, and made these three cards all at the same time. I may start a new suit of significant places in my life. Italy, of all the places I have lived, has had the greatest impact on who I am right now, including the decision to return home and leave Italy. Who would have thought it would take eight more years to return again?

Italian towers - Sacred Places SoulCollage Card

Siena and Florence and a frutta e verdura mercato.

Venice - Sacred Places SoulCollage Card

City of dreams, mystery and romance. My favorite place in the whole world. Where I have spent many happy days wandering, being more spontaneous than I ever thought possible. Where I got engaged in a gondola.
