Mistakes. Humans make them.
Perfection. Humans desire it.
Perfecting mistakes. Humans should do more of this. Why? Mistakes are an opportunity to touch spirit, a place to stop and listen and have a conversation with yourself. They are there to get our attention. Some are much more dramatic than others and some are never noticed except by us. And still some grab the attention of the world, like the train wreck we can’t take our eyes off of.
My obsession with pattern leads me to the spirit line of the Navajo weavers. The spirit line is a thread running from the center of the weaving all the way to the outer edge. It is often in a different color or texture than the pattern of the weaving and most definitely not part of the pattern. This spirit thread allows the spirit of the weaving egress. The idea being that the weaving doesn’t trap the spirit by its enclosure, or the nature of its pattern. Instead, “the mistake,” as Western culture often refers to it, creates the avenue for spirit to travel and gain more knowledge. It is not trapped in the pattern of its maker.
This begs the question, what patterns are you trapping your spirit with? Make your mistakes a way out of the trap.
FYI: Venus is very active right now. Creativity is flowing and imagination is being sparked. Make sure you give it a structure to manifest in.
