This Passion Board is what makes me tick!

July 29, 2021

A little over a month ago we had a beautiful Full Moon in Capricorn.

Over on AstroSparkles it said (in part) that this particular Full Moon was about “What makes you tick?”.

But before I even read that …

I’d spent part of my morning making this.

No this isn’t a vision board.

It’s a “What am I passionate about?” board.

Do you know how much easier it is to create a “passion” board over a “vision” board?

Neither did I until I did it!

Man this is revolutionary!!

So why did I create this Passion Board in the first place?

On the morning of the Full Moon? (totally synchronistic, definitely not coincidental!)

Because the day before I was talking to Dorena from Space Doula and Sherry Trentini, Life & Grief Coach about what’s in the middle of our home.

{FYI it’s a staircase with a cupboard underneath. Think: Harry Potter sans orphan and you’ve got the gist!}

I said to Dorena and Sherry that our stairs don’t store “normal” understair things like suitcases and Christmas trees. No Siree! Nothing so boring for us!

Underneath our stairs is Hubby’s wine collection, all beautifully Virgo organised (there’s even an app involved!), except for what’s stored in the two wine fridges floating around.

Yep, there’s A LOT of wine in our home!

But guess what?

My connection to the wine is, well, lack lustre at best.

I’ll have a glass (maybe) once a week but that’s it.

No this doesn’t make me boring. It just makes me a highly aware person who knows that alcohol really doesn’t do her any favours.

It also means my care factor is pprrreeeettttttyyyyy low when it comes to the hundreds (thousands???) of wine bottles floating around.

To Hubby wine’s a passion; a massive interest (he’s on committees and all); a friendship connection; a way of owning his worth through spending money on things he loves (aka a symbol of abundance).

Do you see the discord?

Hubby = loves wine and all it represents.

Me = ho hum, whatever, move on.

And given the wine lives under the stairs and Hubby loves it, the message I’ve been inadvertently sending the Universe is that HIS DREAMS / PASSIONS MATTER AND MINE DON’T MEAN SQUAT.


This is why I made a Passion Board.

To share with our home and the Universe the things that I’m passionate about; that are important to me; that I feel strongly about, so that I can claim some space underneath the stairs – which happens to be the mind, body, spirit part of the Feng Shui bagua map.

And when I go to hang my Passion Board I’m also going to place a mirror to expand them and get liberal with my crystal collection, ‘cause why not?? I’m sure the wine will like them too!

I can see this is going to be an ongoing project, like all things on my Sanctuary journey, but I’m super passionate about co-creating my life and this is just one way way of doing that.

So – my invitation to you today, if you accept it, is to create your own Passion Board. It will have you thinking in a very different way than a vision board ever will.

Just keeping asking yourself over and over “What am I passionate about?” as you flick through your magazines and watch the images and words jump right out at you!

And the images on that Passion Board above? That’s the stuff that ”makes me tick” // that I’m passionate about at the moment. I’m excited to see what transforms now it’s out in the open (energetically, ‘cause we all know wine likes dark places so that door has to stay firmly shut!).

With much love,
