Muse Now


Muse Now (c) Cat Charissage, 2016

Dear Friends,

Here on this New Moon, I dedicate this poem to all of us who sometime forget the insights that have been so hard-won, to all of us who also need some reminders and some guidance from that which/who is deepest within:


Know what you know.

Know who you are.

Know that what is in your heart is growing, showing, moving outward.

Let go of what has never been your responsibility,

of what has never been your fault.

Let go of the fear that you are not allowed to survive,

or thrive.

Remember that you are as the sunflower:

beauty among beauties,

exquisite, unique;

nourishing, useful, spreading seeds you cannot know where will grow

to offer sustaining nourishment, help, beauty.

Remember the blank page, the empty canvas,

and all the possibilities.

Hold your compass of eight directions,

your heritage of mysticism within the wholeness of the circle of all.

In the center know the rose of mystery, unfolding,

and the seeds of nourishment, possibility, abundance.

Know that you are so loved.

Know that you have never been alone.

There is more, more than enough, more than you can imagine.



With much love,


The progression of Muse Now:

    Dearest Cat: I needed it to hear that. Did I say hear? I thought I heard your voice talking to me. This poem is like balm for my spirit today. Thank you. I wish I will be your neighbor. I love your paintings. I am praying a novena for you. THANK YOU for this BEAUTIFUL POEM and the painting. (((Hugs)))

      I can’t tell you how much your comments are so encouraging to me, Nury! I’m hoping to get connected to SKYPE sometime, and exploring how to do some of my workshops and events through that, Hugs back to you, and thank you for the novena. I’m really trying to discern how best to spend/invest my time, and could use Divine help!

        Oh, Cat!! That’s wonderful. I am happy to hear that you are exploring the option of Skype. Yes, workshops on Skype, that sounds wonderful. You have so much to offer to many people who don’t live close to you like me. It will be fantastic. I am praying the novena to Divine Mercy. Second day today. I will add you to my list. It is a joy to pray for people that I love. Thank you for your hugs. I came back here to write your poem on my journal. It is healing to read it. It is beautiful too. Thank you Cat for sharing. ((((Love))))
