Last Week I shipped all the pre-orders that I had received in December before I went away for a 2 week holiday. I was unable to send the cards out before I went away as one of the cards had not been printed and the cards had not been wrapped as ordered. I can see now why print on demand is looking very attractive.
With printing, I remember from my textile business sometimes there is a stuff up. I surprised myself as my patience was being tested. My plan to ship before Xmas went out the window and I was still smiling. My ability to stay calm in a crisis delights me. I have grown.
This all happened late on Friday afternoon, the week before Xmas and no one was in the office until Monday. We were planning to leave very early on the Monday morning to drive south to The Entrance which was over 9 hours driving.
We left 2 hours later than planned, after negotiating successfully with the printers to print the missing card. To ship the way I had calculated the postage meant there would be some unshrink wrapping when we came back in January.
This was all rectified last week and on Friday I headed off to the post office with my specially wrapped Heart Whisper Decks, to ship to USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland and locally here in Australia.
It was exciting and took me back to the days when I would be shipping my silk scarves and clothing, mainly around Australia. ( BTW there are still a few handpainted silk scarves on sale at my Etsy store at almost cost price)
Color and Sensuality
What has delighted me with the cards is the color,- absolutely brilliant. The time it took me to turn every card from RGB to CMYK was truly worthwhile.- and the feel is sensuous. These cards have been printed on a heavier weight card and have a special finish that makes them feel as smooth as silk.
They feel different to any of my many deck of oracle cards that I have on my bookshelf. Eighteen at last count. What I understand from the printer is that they will not scratch and still look and feel new in years to come.
I took a sample set with me on holiday and when I showed my friend Yantra Lindon she kept feeling them, then went and got 2 other sets of cards out to compare. This is what she has shared on facebook.
Have you seen these beautiful Heart Whisper Cards - just released by my dear friend Suzie Cheel - these cards are all original artworks inspired by Suzie’s own life journey, each card is beautiful, colourful. insightful and tactile - YES TACTILE - the cards are unlike any you have felt before, they have a silky amazing sensual feel, it is as though you are feeling the actual vibrancy and colour as well as receiving the beautiful messages from your own heart - worth checking them out and ordering a set - love Yantra xx
My brother who, we were holidaying with and used to own a large bookstore that sold all the various Angel and Tarot decks, told my niece: “that this was the best thing your aunt has done, she has excelled herself!” That was high praise coming from my brother. No he is not into what he used to call ” all that stuff on the back shelves” The New Age Section.
Yes I am smiling, it has taken me a long while to get a product to you and the world. The response so far is brilliant and has my heart singing.
My sister-in-law. Gabby has been using them each morning and displaying her card for the day where she can see it and be reminded of what her heart is whispering to her through out the day. This has inspired me to add in some others tools that will help others listen to their own heart whispers, heal themselves and learn to more fully love themselves.
As Yantra said: “These cards are inspired by my own life journey”. The heart whisper and the heart whisper paintings came from my NDE and allowing my creativity to unfold was part of my own healing.
A few of the paintings are from those first 45 Intuitive hearts and the Heart Whisper Ezine that began in October 2012. More are from my current 365 painting project of painting a daily heart whisper. Today I paint number 348 and will share in the Heart Whisper Circle
The messages and choice of cards and topics came mostly from my own heart whispers. The happiness card was inspired by a comment from Susan Wright Boucher when I shared this painting, Susan said it was her favorite and depicted for her happiness.
Suzie of all the art I’ve seen you produce, this one is my all time favourite. The vertical blue strokes lead the eye up and make me think of happy things. It has popped into my FB stream a few times and each time it gives me an unexpected warm feeling.
Des chose the joy and knowing cards.

“Don’t try to present your art by making other people read or hear or see or touch it; make them feel it. Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve and keep it alive by making people feel a little better. Feel a little lighter. Create art in order for yourself to become yourself and let your very existence be your song, your poem, your story.
Let your very identity be your book.
Let the way people say your name sound like the sweetest melody.”~ Charlotte Eriksson
What Does Your Heart Whisper When You Look Into This Painting?
When I read the verse above I smiled and thought of my new tagline: Art that opens your heart.
When I share my daily heart whisper painting on The Heart Whisper Circle each night I go to sleep looking forward to reading the next morning what, the day’s Heart Whisper painting has whispered to others.
The words that whispered to me after I painter Heart Whisper 267 were: I follow one path and abundance flows. I have made this the prosperity card i the upcoming Heart Whisper oracle card deck.
The whispers of their hearts the members of the Heart Whisper Circle:
Kim : Rock n roll time again! My heart whispers, “Follow the Stairway To Heaven,” The hearts looked to be ascending into the beautiful blue sky & I was was humming Led Zeppelin!
Jean : Yes, ascending hearts!
Meredith This say to me: Our many loves are stepping stones in life. The path to find love or to do what you love may be an uphill battle so don’t forget to pause, breathe deeply, and take in the beauty along the way

Are You Shining, or Hiding Your Light?
As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others. ~ Marianne Williamson
Are you letting you light shine brightly for you and the world to see or are you hiding your light under a bushel?
As the moon shone on Wednesday evening and there was magical energy, I planned a Full Moon ritual to release those those feelings and thoughts that I allow to creep in sometimes that bring on the FUD factor. I wrote down in my journal that I would do a full moon painting. I had no idea what would emerge onto the paper when I started to paint last night at 9.13pm. I chose a soft blue that I washed over with a deep blue, some white and then layered it with purple. My brush was so full of paint that I brushed the excess onto a board that was at hand. That was how I come to have two moon paintings. The second painting having a deeper background and a heart shape. The gold was my next color choice, representing the new energies that are coming and then the moon shining brightly.
After I had completed the paintings I went outside to look at the full moon and perfection was the word that came to me. I then lit a candle and brought out the paper that I had written the words and feelings I was wanting to release. It was now time to clear away what has been me holding back. This is an exercise I have done in different form over the years. Last night I chose to draw a red heart to hold what I was releasing. Then it was time to meditate, yes under the moonlight, read the words within the heart and then light the paper and release into the night sky.
Then as I went to sleep I asked for my dreams to be filled with my hearts desires.
When I woke this morning I felt light and thought what are some ways that I can continue let my light stay shining brightly?
Here are 7 ways that I know help me shine my light:
I meditate and ask my inner wisdom, my guides and my angels to help and guide me.
I ask each morning how may I serve.
I focus on what I really really want ~ my heart’s desire ~ what juices me and makes my heart sing.
I do mirror exercises and say I love you Suzie.
I smile ~ I wake up with a smile and I smile at the people I pass on my beach walk, at the shops etc. You do shine when you smile.
I let go of the woulds, the coulds and shoulds and I am kind to ME
I tap away any fears and doubts (Emotional Freedom Technique). I find this an empowering, quick way to shift negativity as well as a powerful healing tool that I used daily during my healing journey.
All these things raise my vibes and make me feel good. When we feel good we we shine and we step into our light.
People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
How do you let your light shine?
How does it make you feel?

Working with The Color Green and The Heart Chakra
Green is the color of energy and abundance, of nature, of apples and pears, of limes, of broccoli, kale, spinach, peas and beans, of balance and harmony, of growth and money, of jade and malachite Green presents in so many shades and hews. As I look out my window I can count at least 20 varying shades and tones of green.
Green is the color of the fourth chakra, our heart chakra and love centre. The heart chakra is related to our ability to love and is a source of compassion, kindness and affection. When our heart chakra is in balance and we are accepting of ourself and others, our self-esteem is healthy and our vibes are high: We Feel Good.
This post is part of a Color Prescription series I started over 2 years ago , just before I experienced the autoimmune disease that put me out of action with a total kidney failure. I had painted a series of paintings which you can see in the video and I have added some that I have painted since then.
I reflected back on stopping this series at the heart chakra: I did have a draft back in July 2011! The message that I got back 2 years ago was that this journey for me was all about love, when I fractured my humerus in January 2012, it was in line with my heart chakra, as was my crush fracture. Seem the universe was making sure this time I slowed down enough to get the message!
I have had time to look closely at my own love path as well as observe others wanting to raise their love vibes.
Here are 7 ways I have found that help in opening the heart chakra:
Be Love: love and accept you as you are NOW!
Be KInd: watch the thoughts you think and the words you speak about yourself
Love others unconditionally- this becomes easier the more we love ourselves and release any need to beat up on ourself:)
Go out in nature, lay on the grass and watch the clouds drift by.
Treat yourself- soak in a lavender bubble bath
Breathe- deep breathing releases toxins and blocked energy
Forgive yourself- try using Ho’oponopono and EFT. These are two tools I use daily
What do you do on a daily basis to keep your Heart Chakra open ?
