Energy is Always Moving

 

If Everything IS Energy, and Energy is constantly moving, maybe there is more than meets the eye between the seen and unseen……….

Food for Thought!

Dancing in Antigua – Cause I Could!

Since going through my 30 Days of Photos, I wanted to say a thank you to all who were part of it too!! (or not :))

I took a little break this past week as even though it was a good self challenge, I did spend a lot of time on the computer – needed a little more nature plus have been diving into some cool new expressions of how I would like to do more shooting and editing – so new stuff coming up!!

I learned, grew and expanded during this 30 days process and now I would like to take that further, after all we are talking art here – and life 🙂

I have posted all the 30 photos in this post – on Thursday I will be picking 2 winners – to receive a print of their choice (from here or my site – 11 x 14).

In order to qualify –  leave a comment on the post in  my FB page – share  which image you like, like the page and share.

Easy and greatly appreciated!!

I so look forward sharing more creativity!!

Had to do one more! 🙂

This one is called Magic

Behind each new door, adventure, learning, growing, openness in one self is where there can be magic.

Magic of the unknown, being open, learning new things and ways of doing things, expanding what you do know and trying new things.

There is very little to any magic in the same old routines and ways of thinking and being………

Magic is fun!

So, my take aways from doing the 30 days is…..

I did it 🙂

I learned new skills, yet in PS still have a ways to go, yet it did most my confidence.

Art cannot be forced, there were days when I just didn’t feel creative, and I pushed anyways and well, the end result showed it – art is a creative process.

Not everyone understands my metaphors, likes them or my art – so it got me to thinking who I am really creating for and why.

Then I got, my vibe will attract the right tribe – that is for anything and everyone.

I also got a bit clearer on what I really enjoy working on and what I don’t, I still don’t have a niche and actually I am totally fine with it – love having some diversity  even in what I shoot and create.

I can do it! – I have put this off for over 15 years, as I focused too much on making money (and not always in ways I enjoyed – but thought it could get m ‘there’ faster), was intimidated by PS (still am yet way less :)), it’s ok to spend time creating and playing – I was programmed to work hard in my life, wouldn’t get paid for taking photos……..

and I did it.  It always feels good when we set an intention and follow thru, when it aligns and feels good – then is much easier, I enjoyed almost every moment (except when I forgot to save and lost the image – happened only twice!).

Hope you enjoyed seeing the images as much as I did creating them!!

Thank you and coming soon is a FREE giveaway.

This one I call Searching

Whatever you are searching for,

including the magic,

is already inside of you.

Just learn to lean into it,

hear it,

trust it

and it’s not from your head!

30 Days of Photos #8

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?

This one I am calling ‘Lighten Up’

I wanted to try a levitation shot.  Now, I realize I did it the harder way for the first time, but hey now I know 🙂

I also know where I can improve and let go of having to have it perfect my first time.

This image is about where can we light up in our lives.

Are we taking things too seriously, working too much, stuck in old thinking?

What can we let go of to lighten up.

What can we do to have more fun, more joy, more child like sense of wonder.

Each moment is now.

When we create from that moment – and follow what brings us joy and coms from the heart not the head is where magic gets created and your Soul is guiding you.

That is expansive as it’s about Love.

The mind is nothing but programs playing the same old.

What can you do to create more of a lightness in your being and doing?

What was I thinking when I got myself into this!!??

Just kidding 🙂

This one is called Dark Night of the Ego

For me it reflects life

There are good moments and bad,

and the bad may seem hard sometimes

but there is always the light,

it just takes a different perspective to see it!

That is what our Soul is asking!!
