Remember as a child how time seemed to float by and experiences were more dreamy as you flowed from one magical encounter to the next? My latest painting, Gates of Grace, is an expression of that state that I am returning to after all the purification of these last 15 years since my kundalini opening in Africa.
Daily meditation time in my temple is all it takes to keep my heart/mind open and full of love. Taking time to see and appreciate beauty around me keeps me receptive to feeling that heightened love as an innocent child does.
It is in these moments of emptiness that inspiration comes pouring in and I am filled with a need to create something beautiful as a thank you to the universe for this gift of life. Here is the path to my temple- the Gates of Grace where the yellow butterflies float by so dreamily along the pink flowers, against the blue sky.
And my studio far above the temple with flowers from my abundant garden. This is where sacred ritual takes place.
And I am transfigured through the process of painting. My emptying out becomes a filling up and a channeling out again- a circular process like life itself.
Dear friends, I encourage you to take some time every day to surround yourself with beauty and feel deeply into the love that the appreciation brings in. Sunny smiles and warm hugs to all~
