Art Blog: Being Extraordinary

being extraordinary low resAs humans, we are always trying to fit in in order to belong. It’s supposedly the ‘law of the land’. God forbid if we allow our true authentic self to emerge. Family, society and peers start calling us ‘weird’. They shun us, outcast us, and create circumstances where we are nudged back into their box of what’s acceptable.

The truth is they don’t get ‘weird’. They don’t get how being different is actually fun. They don’t get being extraordinary. And it’s perfectly ok for them not to get it. Seriously. It’s actually ok. After all…

It’s not their journey. It’s YOUR journey.

It’s not their truth. It’s YOUR truth.

It’s not about them. It’s about YOU.

What if you could actually choose to show up as the true magnificence you truly are? What if you could choose to stand on this Earth in your true authentic power that you truly are? Can you imagine the magic you can create? :) Can you imagine how amazingly different your life would start to be? The joy you would feel deep within your soul? Wohoooo :)

I used palette knives and oil paints to create this on paper.

Art Blog: I AM … Adam

Ex's Energy low resI AM … Adam

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.

Adam is your Ex. He’s the person that you loved so deeply that your life began and ended with him. He’s the person that you believed was your THE ONE.  But he’s also THE person who broke your heart into tiny little pieces. He’s the person that walked away without a thought and threw all your dreams into the fury of the winds.

And yet, a part of you holds on (not knowing why). A part of you keeps going around in circles, wondering what went wrong, the ‘what ifs’, the ‘could haves’, the ‘should haves’ … they all start cropping up, driving you mad. You want to really move on, you want to walk happily into another relationship but yet … something keeps you stuck in the past.

It’s very easy for me to say ‘Let go’.  And your next sentence would be ‘Ok howwwww? You think I haven’t tried’? To be honest, all I can say is that you need to keep breathing through all the emotions that arise. Be it anger, sadness, grief … breathe and feel it move out of you. Breathe through the tears. Breathe through the pain you feel in your heart, in your soul.

Only by acknowledging what you are honestly feeling will you actually be able to let go of Adam … with love, grace and gratitude. You will feel things starting to shift, you will feel a place starting to get empty, and that’s amazing because you are creating space in your life, in your energy, for something new, for someone new. :)

And when you think of Adam, he will be a blur. You won’t feel anger and heartbreak, but a lot of gratitude for him. One thing that I believe in is that every person comes into our lives for a reason. They have a role to play into nudging us into who we truly are, and once that role is over, they leave. That was Adam. He came in for a reason to accelerate you, to push you, into truly being YOU.

Art Blog: Angel Power

Angel Power low resThere is an angel inside of each and every one of us, and it is time we acknowledge and own that power within us.

 I was inspired to create this painting whilst listening to Tamra Oviatt’s Sacred Activation on Angel Power. This is one of the best activations I have ever heard.  I was immediately surrounded by a glowish yellow light, and I felt a lot peace within me. I could feel my deepening connection to Mother Earth, and towards the end, I could feel an intense energy surge through me and into my shoulder blades. I actually felt like I grew my Angel Wings. Incredible!
I was very drawn to paint the dress in blues (symbolizing Earth), and the wings in pinks, yellows and purples (symbolizing love and power).
As I was creating this, it made me realize how we have created the concept of Angels as beings existing outside of us in a reality where they are invisible. Which is partly true. Micheal, Gabriel, Raphael … yes. But there are also angels in our lives. We see and meet them everyday. They might not wear the wings and halo for us to be able to ‘see’ them, but the love they give us when we feel utterly unlovable, the way they hug us when we are down, the guy who smiles at you for no reason, the person who gives you their parking when you are rushing, the person who nudges you to be truly You, the person who prays for your mom when she is sick … all angels.
But you too are angel. You too will do things selflessly for others, without expecting anything in return. When you quietly listen to your friends sorrows. When you buy a homeless man a meal. When you say a prayer for someone you don’t even know. When you save a little kitten. :) I guess it’s time to acknowledge the angel within us too :)
