One of the many beautiful benefits of art, both in the creating and enjoyment of it, is the healing quality of color therapy.
The vibrations of colors act on our energetic body to balance our emotional distress and acts on the subtle planes of our Being. My newest painting, Peonies and Tulips, was done during a week when I was dealing strongly with Universal Mother Love (pink), my sensual/sexual vitality (orange), and speaking my truth (turquoise). At the time I wasn’t even conscious that I was using colors that directly correlated with the chakras that had been activated for healing. It was only after going through this portal of initiation, growth, empowerment that I was able to look back and see how the process of painting had supported my inner process of coming into deeper alignment with my Divinity. It is so magical and beautiful to surrender to our intuitive powers and let them guide us to what is real. What is real for me at this time of the longest light of the summer solstice is that as I release false shame and blame from judgement placed on me by ego fears of the patriarchal culture, I am flying into the realms of the heart where I am vibrating at the frequency of Love, shining my light back to the sun as a reflection of the Divine Being I am. And I am realizing this is my ultimate purpose- to radiate Love with my Being of which my painting is a direct extension.
Happy solstice dear friends- May you walk in the Light of your truth as a Divine Being and be happy in your heart for you come from Love and will return to Love, so Be the Love.
