“Bliss be you & all those around you!”
The last couple of days I have had some early morning painting sessions. Yesterday was a particularly early start in the studio getting started at 4:30am today not as early but it certainly does seem to be a very productive time of the day at the moment... that may have something to do with the fact that it is school holidays! Being out of normal routine and having teens on school break has meant my time has been divided and I have struggled over the past 6 weeks to find big blocks of time to paint. Anyhow I think this latest work may just be finished. She just needs to sit where I can rest my gaze on her so she can whisper to me if she is finished or not! #energyart #divineenergy #healingart #sacredgeometry #iamthatiam
Sunday Bliss in the studio! Headphones on with the sound healings of Tom Kenyon! It's been a while since I've had a full day to romance with the paints! Yummy! Working on two new works at the moment. This one is emerging from an ugly duckling phase... Progress is slow and steady but she is birthing with small bouts of resistance and expanding flow! #iamthatiam #tomkenyon #creativity #energyart #art #artandhealing
Happy New Year! I am stepping into all that I am this year... and occasionally that may mean I will share with you a message that comes through my journaling process. Please don't critique me on my grammar this is an automatic writing technique and so it often appears as a mix of 1st, 2nd & 3rd person! If the message resonates with you then it is meant for you, if not let it go!
Happy New year beautiful! I hereby declare 2015 the year of the mindful manifestor.
This is the year to step into the reality of our true nature and our full power. We have been slowly collecting the tools, methods, habits and techniques that align with our creative expression of being… and this year is the year where it is up to us to step into all that is! I am the alchemist! Now is the time to be mindfully focused on what it is we are pulling in! Now is the time to live it as if what you are pulling in has already happened. This is trust! There is no room for doubt and fear it will cloud your path of clarity. This is the year to live it AS IF everything of your true nature is at the surface, ready and accessible. This is the year to know your power of manifesting and use it mindfully. Its time to release the old questions of self doubt and worthiness…. you now dwell in the knowingness of your beingness….. and you know that is enough! Nobody has the power to take that off you, but you must be mindful to check in on your inner compass before you find yourself off path and vulnerable to the heaviness of unguided wondering. Refocus with stillness, trust that you know your best methods to refocus and be playful! You do not need to know your path…. you need to trust in your ability to get there and recognise the sign posts. Now is the time to know your awesomeness!
You have always had the power to manifest, you have been producing outcomes since you were born. Now that you have learned new techniques and have allowed for new notions of possibilities to enter your reality…. your world, your reality, your beingness is in a state of expansion and so are your personal powers of manifesting. Be mindful my darling it is powerful! You must remain mindful to keep this force working for you. Your thoughts and emotions are the tools for direction. They act as the GPS for the manifesting force, map your desire location often/daily, know that if you find yourself off course that your only task is to refocus on where your next destination of beingness is… feel it! Do not waist your manifesting powers rehashing the story of why you got lost…. notice that your off course and congratulate yourself for recognising that you have taken the scenic route and move on. Recalculate, refocus and move forward with head held high! Know your awesomeness!
Now is the time for your ‘what if’s’ to become your living ‘as if’. Living as if… that which resonates deeply as your truth, your true nature, even if it’s wilder and more magnificent than you’ve ever given yourself permission to live before…. Now is the time to live AS IF it is NOW! No more waiting to see! Feel it now! What does it feel like….. FEEL IT… that is your manifesting magic! Know your awesomeness!
So beautiful, what does it feel like to…… (place your hopes and wishes here in thought form)! Feel it AS IF it has already manifested! That is mindful manifesting! Show your gratitude to your inner mindful manifestor and all of her supporters. She will work for you regardless of your thanks but with gratitude she will remain tightly focused and outcomes will arrive with speed! Know your awesomeness!
You have the power to change the things you have previously given your power over to others for. Trust that with persistence, practice and tight focused intentions of beingness….. your on it! Know your awesomeness!
Go forth and mindfully manifest your best year yet beautiful… You’re awesome! #iamawesome #iammindful #iammanifestor #2015isawesome #happynewyear #knowyourawesomeness
Since having the privilege to experience a viewing of 'Song of the New Earth' recently I have been reflecting on the lusciousness of being human that often gets overlooked. I understand that each time I am exposed to a new reference for something and it resonates well within me... it can have the power to shift things and I am able to reframe my experience and understanding of things past, present and future. This has the power to change my physiology, my reality. A lot of what was shared in this documentary resonated with me and it crosses over to how I use colour in my artworks. Since my arts practice moved into intuitive painting which is really another word for a deep practice of expressive art, I have learned to let go of outcomes with regards to the painting process and aesthetics. The old me used to show up to the blank canvas with a sense of fear, and I would churn over ideas before finally beginning a painting with a definite plan. I would always have a notion of what image I was trying to achieve. Now the new me, goes to a blank canvas with an unencumbered sense of embracing all the possibilities of a new work, ready to listen within to what colours I am drawn to and what strokes are wanting to be born. I also wait for the work to tell me if it finished. I suppose why this is relevant to the 'Song of the New Earth' documentary is that I believe I am working with energy, Divine energy wanting to be expressed through me! Through vibrations that I am tuning into which are then expressed via the vibrational levels of colours.
I seem to be doing things back to front. Through the practice of intuitive painting, I am finding my paintings are teaching me things after they are completed! It occurred to me after watching this documentary and another little video that turned up on Facebook which showed Sargy Mann, an artist who is now blind that paints and it really got me thinking about the vibrations of colour. We all know that there are proven theories out there about the effects of colour on the moods and even physical effects on people. I have had the sense that art as a tool for wellbeing can be beneficial for more than just for the artist in the process of creation but for the viewers who allow themselves to truly engage with the finished artworks. I truly believe that artworks have the potential to hold and radiate energy. I believe artworks carry two forms of energy, the energy of creation that flows through the artist to the surface and the energy of the colours and possibly forms. Being that I have already identified that my works are a form of prayer and/or meditation.... I see my arts practice as being one and the same with my spiritual and human practice! I simply cannot separate them. BEING an arts practitioner has assisted to unify previously disjointed aspects of my BEINGNESS. I AM now so much more than an arts practitioner and I hesitate to define it for fear of setting limitations for myself. I am believing more and more with absolute joy that the human potential is bigger than most of us can even begin to imagine!

"Bliss be you & all those around you!"
This is a portrait of One.
She is every body, she is no body.
She is portrait and she is landscape.
She is dust and she is the stars.
She is earthly and she is universal.
She is the north, she is the south,
she is east and she is west,
she is below and she is all of the above.
She is the collective, she is unique,
she is cells divided and she is whole.
She is your soul.
She is dark and she is light.
She is the war that is one, without a fight.
She is bliss and she is sorrow.
She is yesterday, today and she is tomorrow.
She is stillness, she is movement,
she is shifting here and there.
She is the water and she is the air.
She is the breeze, the ease and the dis-ease.
She is the cause and the effect.
She is the pollution and the solution.
She is the one you admire and the one you detest.
She is the one to manifest.
She is the hope and the despair,
she is the one that will always care.
She is everything you can imagine and more.
She is rich and she is poor.
She is attached and non attached,
anchored only by ones beliefs.
She is free and she is imprisoned.
She is death and she has risen.
She is the string theory holding her in place.
She is moving through pathways in outer space.
She is destructive and she is creative,
she is full of grace.
She is courageous and she is vulnerable.
She is all that is... and she is tranquil.
She is full and she is empty.
She is awake and she is sleepy.
She is chaos and she is equanimity.
She is the consciousness of one.
She is a miracle.
She is you, she is me, she is us.
She is a he, he is a she, she is neither nor.
existing as all that is.
She is the Divine One.
