i was so intrigued by these "wisdom cards" created by the beautiful suzanne vinson that i came across on instagram. i asked her the story behind them. here is what she said:
i found myself missing wisdom in 2011. hearing the inner voice, yet not listening. only to say in the end "i knew this. why didn't i listen?" so 2012's path became clear: listening to wisdom everyday, speaking wisdom, listening as a practice to then follow wisdom first. wisdom is within me, but also collective. so i wanted to share on my blog: called to create.
each day, i listen. at the end of the day i think about the lessons i learned, the messages i heart within and that surrounded me. one becomes clearer than the rest and i create a wisdom card. it's a fairly bold practice that helps me claim my gentle strength. many claim a given message as theirs. it's fantastic to see what resonates with others.
inspiring, right? i am so moved by her daily practice. i think i will start slowly incorporating the "listening for" and "documenting" words of wisdom into a new journal this week. i'll post pictures soon!
thank you, suzanne, for sharing your journey with the rest of us. your art is breathtaking!
