If life is like the game of Chess,

which piece are you?

and how are you making your moves?

Some say that there is no time – everything is now.

I think we don’t know much about it.

Could time be an illusion based on different vibrations and frequencies?

Interesting eh?

I called this one a Different Reality.

This one is called Stardust

They say we come from Stardust……..

who knows

but maybe that is why there are so many stars in the sky and we weren’t meant to be

like one another,

oh, and maybe then we also all have a little magic in us!!

I called this one Choose Joy

A different perspective on – it doesn’t matter what’s going on around us, it matters more what’s going on inside of us!!

Choose Joy whenever possible – let nothing steal your peace!!

This one is called INnervironment

The overgrown weeds represents our internal state.

We live in a reality where we focus on the outer environment and make it more real than our INternal one.  We rely on our perceived ‘perception’ of reality through our 5 senses – yet so many programs are running that our perception is distorted.

Why do I say that?

It’s when we focus on labels for identification, labels for fitting in – ie a Coach purse, making our hair, nails, clothes, body etc more important than our real truth, as in  pushing down and burying things like old hurts, wounds, stories that keep us stuck in focusing on all the outer aspects.

It’s when we need to feel accepted or to fit in by how we look, what we wear, what we ‘do’, etc

It’s great to look good, feel healthy etc yet what IF……..

we are not our bodies?

our labels?

our stories?

Who are we then?

We are consciousness in human form.

When we let go of all of those ‘things’, as our identification, and let go of all judgments and we open our hearts more and step into more of the truth of who we truly are, then we step out of the distorted perception of reality

and you can’t put a price on that!

It’s all part of the game, the illusion of being here!

Your INnervironment can be a beautiful garden, or it can be full of weeds.

The neat thing is……

YOU get to choose!

A beautiful garden is cultivated with love, patience, joy and gratitude.

This one is called Flow.

Yesterday I got a reminder of that big time.

I was working on an image, with not a clear intention of exactly how I wanted the end to loo, but I was getting frustrated, things weren’t going smoothly or shall I say – in the ‘flow’.

Once I became aware of how I was feeling, I stepped back, let it go, did some breath work, went for a nice bike ride and ran some errands.

Came back and looked at it and I wasn’t excited by it.

I totally surrendered  and got inspiration for another photo to create – Day 10.

I followed the energy there of excitement, creativity and fun.

These are some of the signs and clues we need to pay attention to so we can either be in the flow in our life or making it harder by going against the stream.

Trust me, I know the harder way and that just doesn’t work for me any longer!

What about for you – flow or upstream?

Life is more fun and magical when it’s in the flow!

Ok I have to be honest, I had to change the image I was working on as I was getting frustrated with the other one and that is not the energy I want to play and create in, even while learning new techniques!

I surrendered, for now and went on to have fun creating this one.

I am calling it – Found It

I found the roller and the magic paint for painting on the canvas – aka your life and creating it as a beautiful piece of art.

The roller is clear intentions.

The paint is a magical combination of joy, love, passion and gratitude for it all.

After all, we are all creating our lives.

So, if you’re painting with just a regular brush and paint,

why not upgrade them??

I love stretching myself and this challenge for me was that in learning and creating art.

This one is called

The Light is Within

We don’t need to steal light from anyone or anything, it’s all within each one of us.

We are all born with an unique vibrational frequency, we weren’t meant to fit in or be the same.

When we tap into our strengths, what brings us joy, what we love to do, from our heart then we shine brighter.

It’s true.

We glow, we have passion, we love life and ourselves more.

All the past, the old stories, the things we did we’re not proud of, let them go – it’s over.

Shine your light – from within!

30 Days of Photos #8

I missed posting yesterday yet the image was finished – honestly 🙂 – it’s expresses how I was feeling.

Somewhat in the dark, contracted yet allowing expression to come through in a different way.

During the process of peeling back old skin, stepping into new energies – aka being an artist  with a vision and a message – yet it’s new skin / energy for me, so I am still deprogramming from old ways of being, thinking and living.

I have learned to surrender, go within, meditate, journal, breath, cry, laugh, create and allow.

Not always easy, yet for me, when I do it, I come through even stronger after.

This time was big for me.

It is opening me up to a more expanded, deeper, more creative me.

Even though those moments seem dark, it’s ok to go within yet move the energy so you don’t stay stuck in that place.

For me, when I step into more of me, let go of old ways/energies that aren’t me, don’t serve me, it’s very INlightening and freeing.

Everything is energy, the more I honoured these times, the more awarenesses for me comes up to shift into new ways and higher vibrations which is why we are here and empowers us.

We were not meant to stay stuck, allow the flow.

We are more than we realize.

Even in the dark – the night, as in this photo – I put the moon as a reminder – there is light there too.

It is also a good time to get out of the head and into the heart.

It is also a long exposure photo, that was taken early in the morning for the soft water – for me that reminds me to breath – long, hold, let it go and that so helps move and shift energies.

And gets me out of my head!

Go breath today and walk in nature barefoot!

What did I call this one?

Light within the Dark.

Your Life as Art is the name of this one.

Each day we wake up to a new day,

What if……

we looked at each day like a fresh, new canvas waiting for you to create something on it.

The paint represents things, people, events that you add on to the canvas.

What colors will you choose?

What emotions will you paint from – excitement, anger, imagination, frustration, curiosity, fear, joy, sadness, something new or the same old.

What if…….

each day of your life was like a piece of art,

What would you create?

How would you feel?

It’s interesting to me, that I can finish an image and then several days later look at it and see things I would change or how it morphs into another meaning!

This one did that on both levels for me, yet I will still share it 🙂

Sometimes that is how life goes, as we grow, learn and expand.

I call this one Choose Self Love

I did a post recently on Facebook that I copied from another women about how much and how long we’ve spent hating ourselves, our bodies and our looks.  We have internal battles within ourselves and usually are beating ourself up for something.

We forget.

We are not our bodies.

We are much, much more than that!!

The time is now – as there only IS now.

When we choose love over anything else, moment by moment – fear, anger, doubt, judgment, hatred etc miracles can happen.

Love IS the highest Vibration and the truth of each one of us.

Yet it has to start within and for self.

So, give yourself a little more Love today,

As YOU are so worth it!!!

Jodi
