As I write this, I have just opened the box of Dreams to be woven into the Carpet for Cardwell that I am weaving and my emotions are hovering somewhere between wanting to cry and allowing my heart to soar.
I am Auri’An. I am a Krone of the International Koalition of Krones, Meditation Therapist, Holistic Counsellor, Reiki Practitioner, EFT Tapping Master Practitioner, Healer (although I don’t like that word!), Energy Worker, Spiritual Awakening Guide, Dream Weaver and much more. My aim in life is to help people navigate through the tricky times in their life by showing how some basic yet valuable ‘tools’ can help them regain their equilibrium.
I live in the Far North of Queensland, in a very small town called Cardwell. This place became ‘famous’ when a super cyclone came ashore just a little bit further north in the early morning of February 3rd 2011. Super Tropical Cyclone Yasi changed not only the face of the town, but attempted to destroy the heart of the people who live there. There are still a lot of unresolved problems in the town, for example the Marina. The owners went into liquidation after Yasi and now, 10 years later it’s still not sorted out. The marina is silting up; the coast guard can’t get out to rescue people; the roads around the marina are not maintained and neither is the street lighting. The sewage situation in that area around the marina will soon become unspeakable if something isn’t resolved very soon.
It is a town where so many dreams were squashed down by the need to simply survive.
But it’s also a town of fighters. It’s a town where a small number of people work their butts off to bring tourists to our town, to raise the awareness of what a beautiful place it is. There are themed markets held right through the cooler months and we even host the ONLY UFO Festival in the Southern Hemisphere!!
Carpet for Cardwell is a project I started a few months ago as a part of one of those themed market days. I, with the assistance of anyone who wants to have a go, am taking the dreams of people who live in Cardwell, or who are just passing through, and am bringing them into reality by weaving the Energy of their dreams into a rag-rug carpet. People write their dreams and drop them into the local Heritage and Visitor Information Centre.
I’ve enjoyed crafting since I was a small child. Well – that’s not strictly true, I enjoy working out how to do various crafts and then I lose interest, and I had no reason to suspect that my desire to learn how to weave a rag rug would be any different. I bought wood and screws and nails and bright red paint and worked on my very first woodwork piece. After all you can’t weave a carpet without a loom, and why have just a plain old boring wooden loom when there is bright red paint! There was a fair bit of eyelash-batting at the local hardware store (well, actually, at my age it’s more like pulling the ‘old-dear’ card) and got heaps of help in getting the wood cut to the right size and not getting a drill bit for metal.
Once I’d made the loom and learned how to do the plain twining weaving, I was hooked. I’ve mentioned it before, I’m a Meditation Therapist and twining weaving, once you’ve got the hang of it, is extremely calming for the mind. I spent hours working on this carpet even talking to clients on the phone whilst weaving, and it was whilst I was doing this that I realised that I was weaving the energy of the conversations into the carpet. Dream Weaving and a Carpet for Cardwell was birthed. I’m now weaving my 2nd carpet (also my 15th place mat; 9th dream catcher and about a dozen mandalas made from the cardboard tubes inside toilet rolls!)
Everything is made of energy and all energy vibrates. Different things, including thoughts, vibrate at different frequencies. Have you ever had troubling thoughts running through your head, or need to do a job that you just don’t want to do? How does that feel to you? I’m pretty sure that it feels heavy. And when you are filled with happiness, when things are going your way and you feel marvellous – don’t you feel as if you could fly!! The darker, heavier energy is of a low frequency; the brighter, lighter energy is high-frequency.
Some of the Dreams I am weaving are sad. Some have a difficult path to journey on. These should feel heavy – except the people who have shared these dreams are filled with Hope – and Hope is a frequency that soars to the sky with potential.
And so, as our Carpet for Cardwell takes shape, it is filled with Joy and Laughter; with Hope and Prayers; with Goals and Dreams for the future. And in a world that often seems as if it is sinking into the murk it brings a beautiful light of Life.
May you weave your dreams into reality
