About

This is what comes next - a Patreon.

Why?

Because I receive secret messages and one with two red foxes said start a Patreon.
AND because I cannot do this alone. (I need people who believe in the power of two red foxes).

I knew without a shadow of a doubt on May 3, 2020 that I was supposed to create a Patreon.

I drug my feet.

On May 9 I did it. I created it. But then I didn’t share it with anyone.

On May 10 and 11 I continued to talk myself out of it. Completely out of it. I had an awful day of self-doubt, panic attacks, biting my fingernails, overeating, low energy, high level irritability. Getting pulled back into the old way when I am living in a new way. The old way is hiding. The new way is seeking visibility.

The evening of May 11, I was watching Spider-Man: Far From Home, and it hit me - one: I should have pulled the trigger when I first knew and saved myself this rough day and two: just because you struggle with self-doubt doesn’t mean you’re not worthy of the task you’re supposed to do.

One month ago I actually said to a group of artist friends that I didn’t want to ever use Patreon. That it would make me feel like I was on a treadmill, churning out work, a slave to the system that gives people what I promised them for each tier rather than freeing me to do what I need to do next. And then a month later, I get clarity that I need a Patreon. You see the humor in this right?

It just so happens one of the hardest things for me to do is to ask for help. So maybe this is just a test. Maybe. But now I know it’s the only way forward. I know the new way is to listen to what we hear, see, feel, know, sense and to act on it, even if we can logically talk ourselves out of it.

This is my Patreon. I cannot have pre-packaged gifts for each tier because I have to do what is on my heart to do next, and I don’t know what that is until I know. I know there will be surprises along the way, for my supporters and for me. We will both be surprised along the way. I do very much need a group of people who support my work, so I can continue to live into the new way.

In my dreams I saw a new way, and I didn’t have to force anything. I was not rushed, stressed, or anxious. I was laughing and there was music. I had all my needs met simply because I was willing to be me in all my fullness and be seen as such. Doesn’t this just make sense?

Your support says to me, “Yes, keep going. Yes, we believe you are receiving secret messages. Yes, we believe you do have to listen to them. Yes, we believe this is important work. Yes, we believe in healing yourself you heal others. Yes, we believe in using your voice."

I have to create and share this Patreon because if I can do this, I feel I can make possibility for myself and others. Will you join me for the sake of all of our possibilities? For the sake of all of us who do not want to go back to the old way after so much has been revealed. When I lose sight, you will be here, and that will help. When you lose sight, I will be here and that will help. We’ll sit a little closer each day.

I believe it is my work to continue to make playful themed possibilities for us to engage in. To question at any moment why we have lost astonishment, wonder, curiosity and play and to bring it back to us. If this is something you believe in and want more of and would enjoy doing with others, please consider supporting this Secret Message Society community and my vision 👁 for it on Patreon. (The link is in my profile.) I keep thinking of Byrd Baylor's book, "I'm in Charge of Celebrations," and that is is what I am seeing for the future of the Secret Message Society. Whether in ordinary life, in the new normal or in a crisis, there is always a way to celebrate and a need for play. 🍾 I want to create those possibilities for us. I will need your help and support for that.

Being a Patron at any level will get you exclusive access to:
A private Facebook Group for the Secret Message Society {Mail Art} Postcard Exchange. This exchange is monthly and centers around a creative prompt. It is a wonder to have a secret message show up in your letterbox. It is a wonder to send someone else a secret message. This is one way we can invite synchronicity intentionally to literally show up for each other. AND we get to play with colours! 🌈
