My Guiding Word for 2014 has changed!
I know ... what am I like?
Last week I mused upon my discovery of 'Illustrare' and 'Thrive' and yet something just didn't feel right about them. It's not that I don't want to thrive - I mean who doesn't?!
I felt that something felt ... just not quite there.
Then I realised in the mid morning of new years day when I sat and contemplated the after effects of all that reflection and I knew right there and then that my word for 2014 is.....
R E L E A S E.
And that felt SOOOOO much better.
It had to be.
When I talk of release I mean not only releasing my words and art tho' that is a large part of it.
When I talk of RELEASE I knew that this year is the YEAR of THE BOOK, the book that has taken a long time for me to bring to light.
The book about healing myself from M.E / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when I was in my 20s. How many things and practises helped me, ART being one of them, plus shit loads of other complementary stuff.
Release for me, is:-
Releasing workshops and teaching 'creative blossoming' to others through face to face workshops in my studio and online workshops, videos and books.
Releasing my fear about not being a mother in this earthly lifetime.
Releasing the pain of not being a mother in this earthly life time.
Release and letting go of all the products, books, guides, art, that I have tucked up my VERY big sleeves.
Releasing debt, Releasing weight, Releasing Canvases that stay in my studio. Releasing worry anxiety over money.
It really is about letting go and not holding back.
It's time for Book number three !!
My new vision book for January is called Blue Sky Thinking - in the name of the rose, e let there by inner light. Here is one of my pages, called 'I Am'
I am - a Salty Old Sea Dog..... (that means - spend much more time by the sea)
I am - picture this ... playing for my dreams
They need to be brought to life and released.
Do you see where I'm going here?
I am, I am, I am, I am
Displaying layers of meaning.
And I am.
As I doodled, I created my own symbol for me that I can be reminded of the important of JUST DOING it - taking one step at a time and putting my words and art out there.
I am having my first in person 'Creative Blossoming' Workshop at my studio in Liverpool on Sunday January 30th.
11am - 4pm
This first one is called:
"Meet your Muse: creating your own Muse Canvas."
It is going to be such fun - limited to 6 people due to space, the price is £45 light snacks and art supplies included. (Lunch, we'll go out to my local cafe).
I'll post more info in a couple of days.
But FOR NOW,
If you'd like to hang out for the day and meet your muse, with music, relaxation, movement and guidance, you will begin to blossom and create a canvas for you to take home that day, email me to reserve your space Here
A Class for MEN and WOMEN :) :)
Release Feels Good.
Be back soon.
