The only journey is the one within - Rainer Maria Rilke
Day 4: It was a scorcher, but the girls arrived early once again to help set up their camp. I really love these girls and I can't believe tomorrow is our last day. Oh how I will miss them! We started the morning with gifts. Today's gifts comes from the generous folks at Hay House, publishing company of the inspiring Louise L. Hay. They sent the girls a set of cool affirmation cards as well as a story book about abundance by Dr. Wayne Dyer.
We immediately began our journal work. I demonstrated two methods of transfer printing and gave the girls copies of their flying photos from yesterday to use for transfers. They tried the water method as well as the gel transfer.
The journals dried in the sun. A flock of Goldfinches tried flying through the Mighty Tipi then miraculously detoured to a nearby tree.
We ended the morning with a new project, Lanterns. The lanterns can be used as a night light or anytime we need to lift our spirits. They are wonderful to honor the passing year, a solstice, a holiday, a season, or a birth.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” - Marianne Williamson
Shine, Mighty Girls, shine!
