When working with emotional responses to the modern world, I try to honor my deepest intuition, my sense of who I am on the most personal level. Challenging times can make me question my most basic beliefs, yet they also provide me an opportunity to be strong. I can remember my core Self, and express my own unique vision of the world. I can rise to any occasion, and call on hidden strengths.
It is this depth of experience that helps create an inner Guide. It is different for all of us, borne of individual human spirit and nurtured by our disparate life events, yet we have this in common, a sense of who we are in the world.
We each have this knowledge, a brilliant light inside our souls. Sometimes the glow is brilliant and steady, as clear to us as a star in the night sky. At other times, depending on the depth of the waves or the height of the mountain we must scale, it may seem as if our intuitive understanding of our own essence gets lost.
The right direction may not be evident, or our energy and willpower may be at a low ebb, but no matter the conditions, our Guide is always there, its four corners of illumination pointing the way. The large star in the sky of each side of this carving is meant to remind us that we have the strength to cross stormy oceans or traverse high mountain ranges, while our inner light shines on with our core beliefs.
