And I am thrilled to be turning this carnival back to Lexi Sundell. I have a lot more appreciation for all the great carnivals she’s had in the past for me and all of you. Hopefully, she’ll want to pick it up again after her nice, long summer vacation…right, Lexi!??
(Note: If you are receiving this via email, you may have to visit the blog to get the links for these great posts.)
This carnival’s theme features three qualities from The Alchemy Stones created by M.E. Warlick. They are always right on target.
The first quality or stone represents where you are today in the present moment, the second where you are coming from, and the third where you are heading to. I intuit which post goes under which quality. Read one or two from each section and let them inspire you in new directions, ideas, and ah has! in your own creative endeavors. Remember…the right energetic stance for the world is to be fully in the present, while supported by the past and open to future potential.
Where You Are: Alembic: Observe what you have set in motion. Patiently wait for the outcome. Careful evaluation will help you recognize when to act.

Chris says, “Most of the time, it seems, what we do is oriented toward our survival and stability — making sure our basic needs are met, and that we maintain our lifestyles. Although this mindset is good at keeping us alive, it doesn’t do wonders for the creativity of our work. When we’re focused on our wants and needs as we work, we tend to second-guess and compromise. Doing something before your creative activities that isn’t oriented toward survival or impressing others — such as meditation — is a great way to keep yourself “in the flow.”
