Love. What does it mean to you? How does it make you feel? For me, love is the highest vibration and it feels so GOOD. When you love someone, that feeling radiates from your heart center and outward from your body. You smile, you may cry, you may FEEL joy. It is the best feeling in the world to me.
Recently, I watched a fascinating episode on the Gaia Channel about Heart Coherence featuring the HeartMath Institute. https://www.gaia.com/video/coherence-heartmath
The HeartMath Institute studies the heart intelligence and provides tools for everyone to access their intuitive capabilities to enhance their lives. https://www.heartmath.org/about-us/
In this particular episode, Sue Morter interviewed Deborah Rozman, the founding Director of the HeartMath Institute. They spoke about how the heart carries a vibrational frequency and that this frequency exists in all humans. This is why we feel so connected to one another. Through the practice of gratitude and concentrating on our hearts we can FEEL a greater connection and love with one another because this feeling sends a frequency out into the world beyond our physical bodies.
Another fascinating aspect about the heart that I learned is that it vibrates at the same frequency as the center of the earth. 🌎 🌏
Ya know that feeling that you get when your outside, amongst the trees, 🌲 feeling the warm sun on your skin, or watching the waves crash on the beach? That feeling is your heart connecting to the vibrational frequency of the earth. This information blew my mind wide open and got me thinking of other ways that I could feel this coherence. Not just when were outside, but anytime we are practicing an activity that brings us joy is in fact, you taking part in the love frequency.
For me, creating in my studio brings me so much joy and helps me to connect to the LOVE frequency. Creativity is my medicine. Anytime that I am feeling low and out of sorts, I can go into my studio and create. This always gets me grounded and connects me to joy. I love it. Love has become the cornerstone in the quilts that I make and the art that I create. During the first few months of the 2020 quarantine I was in my studio ALOT. The first project that I set out to complete was a paint by numbers of my dog Duke. He is my first dog and brings me so much joy. Here is his painting.
Over the years I collected a stash of fun fabrics that I wanted to sew with someday. This picture is what I’ve collected through the years.
I’ve always wanted to sew 🧵 a quilt so I made it a goal to sew 1 quilt to see where it led. From April of 2020 to today I’ve ended up sewing 4 quilts, various baby items like burp cloths and blankets, mini quilts, scarfs and so on. I couldn’t stop. I also entered my sewing items into a Facebook Virtual Market Place here https://www.facebook.com/groups/VirtualMakersandGrowersMarket
The Market Place was a good experience that I went ahead and opened an Etsy shop
https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewGoodniss?ref=search_shop_redirect to sell my sewing creations. The quilt that I am most proud of and I believe speaks to this post is my LOVE quilt. A labor of love literally.
I really like how this turned out. The word “Love” wasn’t my intention. The inspiration came to me as I was sewing the quilt pieces together.
While sewing this quilt, I taught myself Free Motion Quilting. It’s a technique where you hover over the quilt top as your sewing with a darning foot to create swirly designs while moving the quilt top in various directions. This is my preferred way to sew when I am creating larger quilts.<p value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">I'd be curious to know if you've ever felt that swell in your ♥️ heart.
