Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. – Rumi
A Note from the Muse, Bernadette:
Welcome! I am so excited we found each other in this big, wonderful universe because muses love to travel in good company – and because I know that there are no coincidences. You are here for a reason.
I am the resident muse of Muse Fusions – the umbrella under which I inspire and empower others while engaging in all the activities that I love to share. (Well, most all.) As an intuitive guide and personal muse, I offer an eclectic blend of inspiration for your heart, home and lifestyle. My intention is to excite and release the energy needed to sustain more of what makes you smile. As an intuitive, my experience spans over two decades (but who’s counting) in a variety of creative and spiritual modalities. As a mentor and muse, I use tools that encourage and strengthen positive links between where you live and how you live – so you can live well!
The inside supports the outside. The outside supports the inside.
Because a major life transition of my own led me to this work, I do not take lightly the transformative powers of awareness and intention when combined with action. I also understand, first hand, how the emotional impact of change can sometimes slow a process. What I love about being an intuitive guide and muse is that I get to show folks how to honor their pace while holding their vision – whatever that may be.
I value your visit and hope you meander. Feel free to contact me and know that I read everything – though sometimes find I am too far on the other side of the galaxy to answer promptly.
What Led Me to This Playground:
The dictionary defines sanctuary as a place of refuge or protection. When my life turned upside down, the blank pages of my journal became that place. A refuge where I could rant, reflect, commune, witness, and even scribe wisdom from a Divine Presence.
As I “came to” in my pages, I came to in my home. Half empty rooms and blank walls shifted as I opened to a curious dialog with the space around me. After so many years of sharing that space with my husband I became painfully aware of what our homes had not reflected: Who I was.
Confronted with the blank canvas of an echoing house, I had no clue where to begin – realizing that every choice I ever made referenced to the needs and preferences of another. Aware of the power of choice given me, I slowly discovered the importance my environment played in my process to heal through the betrayal of my partner. I also started to recognize where my betrayal of self was the first blow.
My life experience and expression as an artist grew into a passion for creating sanctuary, giving birth to a re-purposed path. I’ve been a teacher and practitioner in the intuitive arts of heart and home ever since, helping others identify better ways to claim their space and support themselves.
I am passionately committed to healing through creative expression and inspiration. I consult and gives workshops wherever I am led, sharing insights on how to heal spaces – within and without.
And, of course, I continue to write!
