I dream of living in a world where all life is valued and every living being has what they need to thrive. A world that works as one, for the good of all. I want to live in a country that respects, honours and values the unique contributions of each of the four nations and work collaboratively for the benefit of us all.
I believe the only way we can achieve this is by opening our hearts, listening to the wisdom they hold and allowing them to guide us.
What does your heart tell you? Mine tells me that we are so much better together than we are separately; whether that’s communities, organizations, countries or the world.
Hearts symbolize love, compassion and kindness. They represent hopes, dreams and wishes for a better world for us all. Knitted hearts bring a whole other dimension.
Diana Cooper teaches that sheep carry healing energy and live as flocks because they know that by acting together they can spread their healing more effectively. Wow! Confirmation that knitting our world together is so much more than a metaphor.
I knew I had to use carefully sourced 100% wool from different rare / traditional sheep breeds because their wool carries the sacred energy and ancient wisdom of the land they graze on. A double whammy of the energy of the sheep and the land before I even pick up my knitting needles!
Each heart is knitted with intention. I meditate and open my heart, I align with the energy of each yarn; honouring and respecting their unique qualities. I thank the sheep. I knit with love.
United Kingdom hearts are the first of many blended hearts. My ultimate dream is to knit one heart incorporating yarns from as many countries as possible to represent one world. A reminder that we are one and it is only with an open heart that we can collaborate to make decisions that truly honour and serve all life on our amazing planet.
I WOULD LOVE THE WE ARE ONE FLOCK TO GROW AND SPREAD ACROSS EVERY CONTINENT ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO THEIR HEARTS MORE AND BE GUIDED BY THE INNATE WISDOM CARRIED THERE. WANT TO JOIN US?
