update on michelle - the doctors pumped her up with morphine and sent her home. they believe she has appendicitis though it's not at an operable stage yet so they've told her that the moment she gets any signs of nausea or vomiting, to head straight to the ER. we're hoping it will settle down and stay that way. poor shell has been through enough for one year.
affirmation for today - INCREDIBLE CREATIVE LIFE FORCE FLOWS THROUGH MY ENTIRE BEING
the soul needs creativity to express itself.....i love the sound of that!
denise states that when we are being truly creative, time stands still and we enter into a dimension that can carry us beyond the ordinary state. i totally identify with what denise is saying here because, when i paint, i often go into what i call 'the zone'....and when it seems like only minutes have passed by, it has actually been hours. i've heard that most artists/creatives have this same experience.
today, we were asked to let our creative juices flow and find ways in which we could do things differently. i've never used oil pastels before but i bought some recently after being so inspired by jessica's lovely work using oil pastels. so, there i sat with my new pastels and A4 sketchbook. i closed my eyes and focused on how i was feeling. i felt calm and grounded and the colour green came to mind in a circle shape. i guess the circle could have symbolised 'being centred'. i started blending the first couple of green tones and then....my daughter called and sought advice on the terrible pain she was in. you know the rest but, from that moment, i found it quite hard to focus so just went with the flow of continuing the circles in colours that flashed to mind. i loved blending the oil pastels with my fingers but.....
...i really didn't play much more after that so focused on producing my art piece for today. this was also influenced by my concern for michelle. she adores butterflies so the choice of subject was obvious....i placed hearts on the butterfly's wings and focused on surrounding her with love and as i doodled the rest, i sent her lots of caring and healing vibes.
i plan on trying out the other task levels in the coming week as they sound very appealing to me. i'm keen to see how the rest of my 'soul' sisters did with today's lesson.
love, light and peace ~
