INSPIRE was the word that showed up today while meditating and reflecting along with the color yellow. (If you know anything about chakras that refers to the solar plexus, the emotional connection of our being, aka soul, where everything combines together) Being quiet and listening to that inner voice speaking kind of caught me off guard, sort of like being bungee’d straight into the sky and losing your breath along the way. What does it all mean?
Journeys can change at any given moment. Each day is a new chapter in that journey. I wake up and my course has been preset, even though the schedule may say something else completely. Be ready for detours; they come in all shapes, sizes, challenges and surprises! I’m learning to have a goal, but perhaps not an ‘exact’ way to achieve it and let the universe guide me.
So far, each decision I’ve made on my path of great self discovery, has delivered stepping stones for my future. I’ve been able to renew relationships from the past. It’s brought new people into my life from seemingly out of nowhere. I’ve given all up to “Faith” and am able to lean on “Hope” for the future (I know these are my daughter’s names, but there was another reason we chose those names many years ago). My past was also necessary on this journey and I’m made more aware of that each day, as well.
I know that in time, my creativity will be used to inspire others, but it is important for me to be in a good place mentally and spiritually in order to help them on their journey using creativity to foster self acceptance, move beyond fear of failure and even heal from previous hurts.
I’ve been consistently creating, joined the Valley Art Association, got over my fear of hanging my work to display for more than ‘just’ family and friends. I feel like I can trust my creative thoughts a little more after hearing comments from others about my work and how they perceived it as I envisioned the work to be viewed. That being said, I had a creative light bulb also surface today shortly after meditation and I cannot wait to share what I’m thinking about trying in 2019, I shared this vision with my girls tonight, and they thought it was great. You probably will be seeing some yellow in my work for a little while, and with it some emotion also.
I told my husband and several others that it is difficult to reign in all that has happened and how fast it is hurling this direction. It’s important to recognize that when you truly follow your destiny; you may have obstacles to overcome but nothing can stand in your way!!!
