soul restoration blog hop!!

Welcome to the Soul Restoration Blog Hop - if you're following the blog hop you came here from Pippa's beautiful blog!

What? I'm supposed to come up with words to describe a life changing experience? Oh dear... I'll try.  I don't know that there are enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe Soul Restoration with Melody Ross.  Good adjectives.

Amazing.  Eye-opening.  Heartwarming. Heart-wrenching.  A time of self-discovery.
 The picture above was me burning my fears... remarkably freeing. 

Melody taught me to love myself.  Through all the damage, and all the weakness, and all the CRAP.  She taught me how to discover the Sandi that got buried so many years ago... buried to the point that I thought I'd never see her again.  Buried by fear, buried by heartbreak... buried by the confines of a sick Soul House...

I stand before you today (well actually I'm sitting) a woman that DOES love herself, that has embraced her weak-self and has learned to be the confident, brave girl that she was always meant to be.

And in the process I learned SO many cool art techniques - utilized them and actually opened an Etsy shop to sell some of the pieces I made.  Those that know me well know that this is a huge, brave step for me.

There's a link to the right ----> for my Etsy shop if you're so inclined to shop.  ;-)

Here's a sample:


Join us for the powerful and fun online workshops taught by Melody Ross that are being enjoyed and loved by women all over the world!

Thanks for visiting - and be sure to leave a comment - I will randomly choose a comment and that poster will receive an original art canvas made by me, using techniques that Melody taught us.

  6. Hi Sandi, Love that you burned your fears! I've done soul work as part of solstice ceremonies, where we place one stick in the fire releasing everything that we wish to let go of and another stick asking for what we want to bring into our lives. Finally, we turn our backs to the fire to let go of any attachments we have to the outcome of our two actions. It feels like a very sacred, extraordinary and peaceful process. Happy to have shared the journey with you on SR! Blessings, Julie
