Dolls are spiritual objects

I have dolls. Fashion dolls like Barbie. And Ken. I have around 45 total. I also have six drawers full of fashions and various accessories. This is so I can redress them. And I do redress them. I would say I redress a couple a day. And I love it. It brings me happiness and joy. For me playing dolls is a spiritual act.
The first way redressing and playing with dolls is spiritual is in the fact that this act is a form of meditation for me. I fall into a meditative state as I fasten little snaps and zip tiny zippers. The repetition of these movements help to calm me and settle my racing mind. Combing hair is a great action to still a frantic mind. The act of meditation is of course a spiritual act. It gives you the chance to clear your mind and allow messages from beyond to be received. I get some powerful spiritual messages during doll play. I look forward to that being a benefit of this type activity. Spiritual play brings spiritual peace.
The dolls have come to stand in for the many aspects of my mind. There’s the doll that means “love” because it was a gift from my hubby. A certain doll means “casualness” because his outfit is loose and easy. And so on. Every doll means a part of myself separated and examined as it’s own entity. This is a powerful spiritual activity. I can step outside of myself to gain a fresh look at my Self. I am allowed to view things anew in this manner. Dolls offer me a way to accomplish this.
These are ways that my dolls are my spiritual tools and allies. I find myself getting closer to my gods and my own truth through my play with them. Rather than outgrow these toys they have morphed in meaning to remain relevant. And I hope they will do so for years to come. Hail Barbie!

Making a difference

It always surprises me when folks reach out to me to let me know that my work has somehow impacted their lives. I get messages from real life everyday folks about twice a week. It always humbles and amazes me. I certainly never set out to change people’s lives but apparently I have. Which is a huge honor. And I take it very seriously. I am grateful that people feel comfortable reaching out to me. I try to reply to all of them honestly and respectfully.  It baffles me. But pleases me all the same.
Why do I do what I do?  When I started down this path some 25 years ago there wasn’t that much information out there about esoteric experiences. So I started writing about five years ago. I started with this blog. I thought I’d just share what happened to me. I had no intention or hope that others would be affected by it at all. I just wrote. Then I did a book. And another. And a Facebook forum. Then a Facebook page. All with the intent of simply sharing. That’s what I’ve continued to do. I keep sharing.
I try to stay away from controversial subjects. I make sure my words are true and honorable. I am careful of what I send out into the multiverse. It’s not that hard. I just imagine I’m handing anything I write into my spinster strict high school English teacher!  And I try to live a good life.
This has become a part of my path. I now reach people. And that is a huge responsibility that I take seriously. I have become an elder. Through no plan of my own. By simply living a decent life and sharing with the multiverse what I do. It’s a good place to be. I am thankful the gods have stood by my side and walked this path with me. And I remain humble and thankful for it all.
Thanks for allowing me the honor of being a part of your path. Thanks for keeping me humble and grateful. Thanks for keeping me on my own path. For all of that I simply say “Thanks”.
