Today in Reverb15 Kat McNally offers this delightful prompt:
“What if you had to give someone a recipe for how to make a YOU?
What major ingredients would be required? What method would you recommend?
How would your je ne sais quoi be recreated?”
Harmony, Creativity, Curiosity, Deep Listening, Magic, Serenity, Reflection, Sacredness, Sparkle Appreciation, Joy, Gratitude, Delight, Unity Consciousness, Introversion, Love.
Using quantities as inspired, dump them all in a copper cauldron. Add chocolate, a holey stone, a minimum of seven poems, a ruby and a Herkimer diamond, at least three fabulous words, a thimbleful of ambrosia, a kaleidoscope, a pinch of honey, rose petals, a blessing from Thoth/Hermes/Mercury, the hum of bees, a strand of silk, an I ching coin and a bus token. Stir with a crow feather in a spiral pattern.
When just about done, as determined by your mood, move the pot out into the sunlight for a while, then under the shade of beautiful tree, and then back out into the moonlight. Repeat until just the right moment, when all the planets are in proper alignment, all in perfect time.
Whistle off-key but with great enthusiasm while dusting the resulting concoction with liberal doses of Rumi, and anointing with opulent scented oils.
Add a chapeau to the top, red shoes to the bottom, and stick an awakened heart in the center.
Voila! There you have it – the recipe for me.
