Living Truth with Heart– through silk, voice and art

My name is Fiona Stolze – welcome to my site. I created this space to share with you my writings on all the topics that are near and dear to me. As you can see, living what is true is a top value and I have reached a point in my life where I know that it serves no purpose to compromise and make up stories when I know the truth of what is deep within me. It amazed me … Continue reading

Integrity of Word

fionastolze gladioli

It’s important to realise that everything we express, whether in words or actions or other means, takes form in reality – indelibly, like an ink stamp. So it’s really important to bring awareness to what we are saying in every moment. Words mindlessly spillt out into the ether are touching, forming, changing…everything they encounter both directly and indirectly. And it’s important to be aware of where the words are coming from. Are they spewing out of a sewage canal filled … Continue reading

Room with a View – Heart Blossoming

hydrangea bush

This is truly a room with a view. Such an amazing explosion of blossoms in such a wonderful range of colours. Hues from soft pinks, peaches, warming yellows to soft sky blues and lilacs. A wonder of nature that always surprises and delights me. I love peeping out of the window to see this extravaganza. A gift that came with this house we moved into 7 months ago. And it’s such fun to look out through the top pane to … Continue reading

The Blossoming of Newness

Spring is blossoming and I’m enjoying noticing how things are gradually changing in my life. Newness is creeping in from all corners, subtly, but definitely there. The things that are opening up for me are changing. My thoughts are becoming different. And I’m ready to step into things I was closed to before, seeing that there never was an obstacle… The challenges are still there in abundance but I really have this sea of calm within that I can rest … Continue reading

Another Beautiful Sunset – Life’s Happening While I’m at my Computer

bristol fionastolze silkandart

Oh my! Just about half an hour ago I happened to look up from my computer screen and saw a beautiful sky. I leapt to my feet and grabbed the camera. This is what I saw. Sunsets are so amazing. The colours, akin to silk painting and watercolour technique, look as if someone had picked some incredible shades from their palette and spread them with a large, soft brush across the sky. I slowly went back to what I had … Continue reading

The Truth, the Raw Truth and Nothing but the Truth

rainbow fionastolze blogging 'inspired art and living' raw food diet raw food

A few years ago I went off on a weekend workshop where I was to be taken past my perceived physical limits in a gruelling bootcamp and embrace a new diet, the raw food lifestyle. I shared my journey on video and in blog posts and began to see how I had been creating one myth after another through my life. Releasing my attachment to cooked food blasted so many of my old belief systems sky high  and let me … Continue reading

Magic in the Setting Sun

fionastolze sunset

There’s just something magical about the setting sun. I wrote recently in a post about that moment when the last firey rays light up the horizon. But when I stepped outside a couple of days ago to photograph the setting sun again, something quite extraordinary happened. I pointed the camera in the direction of the sun and just as I took the photo, there was a sudden flash as the light momentarily blinded me. I had a feeling that the … Continue reading

Watching the Day Coming to a Close

fionastolze sunset

I was scurrying around, seeing to many small jobs and generally tidying up and creating space. We moved house not so long ago and we spend a portion of each day, seeing to things that really need seeing to. There’s still a lot to tend to. And I was just thinking about how much we had actually shifted. How much we had cleared out to make space for what was to stay. I was walking down the path to the … Continue reading

Getting Up Again After We Fall

sunlight

I was thinking about how easy it is to fall. In a spiritual sense. Saying how things are and then tripping over the next hidden obstacle without any warning. I see so clearly how important it is to have my thoughts, words and actions in alignment with the Deepest within. And yet sometimes there’s a loud crash and I’ve fallen face first into the next quagmire. But I can see the full reflection the moment it happens. It’s that moment … Continue reading
