roots and wings: the balance life

Ileen here, back to making  prayer flags, after various other projects.  This one is a prayer for the balance of life--the need to soar  and fly with the need of being grounded or rooted.

love, health and prosperity

PROSPERITY prayer flag (for Joyce)

LOVE w/heart prayer flag (for Joyce)

HEALTH prayer flag (for Joyce)

Tina Wittmer writes "I made these three flags for a good friend's upcoming birthday. She has Parkinson's, so I wanted to send some good health wishes to her. The Love and Prosperity flags are general goodwill for a happy life and no financial struggles. Some of the flags include prints of my photos, hand carved stamps, and hand stitching. These were really a labor of love."

Liz Pearce writes
"Today I had the privilege to be a part of a special occasion. I participated in a liturgy in a residential home. An over-riding theme was unity  and I introduced prayer flags as my morning meditation and as a prayer form from another culture. I spoke to each of five flags in turn and then hung them across the main desk.
There they will bless all who pass: staff, residents and visitors alike.
All can pause and spend time meditating on the accompanying thoughts.

Prayer flags have become an intrinsic part of my day now.  I have been making them for over 150 days now and they are as normal for me as brushing my teeth or walking the dog."

connect to the light within

Annie Watson writes
This flag is about praying that we may love ourselves by connecting to the spark of love within us that each of us has.
