{THE UNFOLDING}

into my truth

 

i carry

a beginning of a new beginning

1,095 days ago

at the age of  27

i carried

 8 years of loving someone with all my heart .

i carried holding on

to the "not knowing what to do"

i carried standing still

with the heaviest layers over my heart

layers of tears. heartache. chronic pain + fear

day after day

this heaviness i carried

dimmed the light within me

I could not hear

my own voice. feel my own intuition

confidence.  purpose. desires.

i could not SEE the love within me

the only way through would be to begin

a beginning of a new beginning

i carry leaving + letting go. 

i carry

wildly unfolding without direction

dancing to "into the mystic" on the beach

and the words

"moving forward like a freight train"

somewhere in between the rhythm of the ocean waves

+

 the memory of crossing over the line drawn in the sand

i felt a feeling within in me

 it was a spark of light 

{a spark i would soon SEE}

i carried

3 duffle bags + 4 boxes 

i carry a solo plane ride from sunny southern California

back to my hometown in Minnesota

i carried the words "artist nichole rae" 

after taking the leap. 

the leap

to begin 

a beginning of a new beginning

i carried the days being completely different

i carried an 80 degree temperature difference 

i carried holding onto

to the "not knowing what to do" and remembering that spark of light

i smile as i write this- that spark of light is filling my studio space 

and the space within

i would at age 28 begin again

i carried the words

"with my whole heart, i must go forth as an artist"

creative since the age of 6 

these words were the beginning of what i know today

as my truth. 

i carried the day everything changed

the day this spark of light met the teachings 

of A Course In Miracles

this spark was filled with a light

a light that began to lift the heaviness 

a light that illuminated a space within in me

i carry a collection of daily practices

morning  devotions

journals. lessons. writings. miracles

i carried the words "I forgive" 

and the sound of my own voice

i began to feel a feeling i had not felt before

a feeling of love

a love that was within me

a love that was beginning to heal the ache + the pain

a love that was guiding me in confidence at the age of 29

+

leading me into my purpose. 

a love that has inspired my life

a love that has allowed me to SEE 

a love that has lifted the layers

i carry

a truth within me

i carry a knowing of my purpose 

 guiding me 

guiding me to share these practices

 with you

to connect

to inspire your truth

to cultivate the space within
