A Moment in time

This one I call – A Moment in Time

After my 30 day self challenge and taking a break from being on the computer so much, I have been searching for some things – what kind of Art Photography do I really want to create.

So much of what I have created and still is in my mind to be created I realize has meaning, a different perspective and some sort of metaphor.  It’s a way I get to intertwine my love for creativity, photography, art, quantum physics and more of the truth of who we really are.

I love to challenge myself to learn and grow and now that I am finally stepping more into the creative person I’ve always been, but have held it back for one day, the downloads of things I want to create is inspiring and a tad overwhelming as it’s coming in fast. lol

I also realize that I love a little diversity, not just in art, photography but also life.

I’ve been getting this urge to paint lately, so I took out what paint supplies I have with me from Canada and started playing, which btw I suck at.  I couldn’t figure out why I was having this urge and then I discovered some Impressionist Photography and was blown away.  I’ve tried in many years ago, but now it seemed different – painting with my camera – so very cool!

I share that with you as a little nudge in your life of do you follow the energy of what is being given to you, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time or do you dismiss it?

Sometimes it leads us to some great things that we could have never ‘thought’ about with our limited thinking.

Our mind is our computer that only knows how to regurgitate what it already knows.

Our heart is our connection to our Soul.

Where our truth lies.

I call this one Be Open

We all go through dark times or unpleasant times, when we least expect it,

the light shines and a solution or a new perspective can appear,

especially when we least expect it!

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.

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 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?

When the fog lifted, she remembered the truth of who she was.

This one is called She Remembers

The fog represents the veil of amnesia we all ‘walk’ through when we incarnated on planet Earth for a human experience, into the illusion of separation, learning programs of discordant energies that are not pure Love.

Once you awaken, then remember who your truly are, you can activate yourself to higher vibrations of Love.

In all choices you can ask yourself – Would Love choose this?

I was just playing when I created this one, but thought why not add it in.

You know how you doodle sometimes, or used to while in class, zoning out, or maybe on the phone and a tad bored.

This was the energy of just creating.

Sometimes those times are quite healing as in balancing of energies – doodling can be in alignment with sacred geometry.

The title is Soul Connection

It reflects the lightness, love and joy when you truly connect with your higher self.

The conversations are amazing as is the heart expansion.

Your Soul is always there, it’s the programs that keeps you separated!

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!!
