More inspiration from my studio…

As I continue to work daily in the studio searching for new inspiration and techniques to express what spins in my spirit…

I have to admit that it’s not as easy as it may seem from your side of things…

Challenging ourselves to be fully immersed in our passions, mine is creating and teaching mixed media art and helping other find that spark of creativity…really requires us staying in the ring with ourselves….

So I share my work to inform, prod and coax you to yours, whatever that may be, but please be assured that I’m in the ring too!…Everyday!!!

Enjoy!

Creative Conversations – 2-17-15 – “Dehumanizing of Humanity”

“Dehumanizing of Humanity”

This Conversation starts with me talking about my 365 day Journal.  Journaling for me is a way for me to process lots of things in my world.  For some artist it’s about creating beautiful things, others it’s political expression, or women’s issues however, my art work is about raising consciousness.  My own first and then hopefully the viewer will explore their own cosmic reality and accessing their higher greater self.

In this Creative Conversation I will explore some of the topics that I think about, which informs my artwork, and my healing work as a Reiki Master and a Creativity Coach.

365 Days In The Life Of A Journal – Introduction

I want to share with you a personal challenge that I began this year to create meditative art daily in a journal for 365 days…

I’m calling it “365 days in the life of a Journal”

Please join me by creating your own journal it can be artwork, photos, writings… any way you are inspired to communicate with yourself … the most important thing are the internal dialogs because I believe that they keep us awake and aware of our world around us…

Also you can begin at any point in the year and continue forward…it’s not about the number 365 but the challenge to do something daily that adds to our personal awakening…

“Day 8…Forgiveness Is Fundamental”

Day 8…Journal Entry… I found myself writing my feelings…no images just words…

It was very cathartic…I realized I had a lot to release a lot to forgive myself and others…

The first words I wrote on the page were…”Forgiveness is so fundamental for healing”

tumblr_msm6k82dUb1r13x20o1_500

We can carry pain and blame others for what they’ve done to us or why things have turned out the way they have…

Or we can forgive them and ourselves for allowing it..

saying yes to it…

going along with things…

and just move on…

You see if we don’t take responsibility for what has happened in our lives and to us, even when others are involved…we give up our power to change things…

Because it will always be something outside ourselves that created the problem and therefore beyond our control…

But when we say yes we allowed this thing and now I don’t, I can then change the outcome and the results in my life…

In the words of Einstein “The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”

We often times do this with the decisions in our lives…we see the repeat patterns, and somehow keep playing the same song…

My journaling allowed for self examination and a renewed view of myself…

What forgiveness can you do today that may lead to a renewed spirit?

Much Love and Peace
