Spirals, Circles & Squares

Under “stay at home ” , I am at home.  As we know,  there are many many details that make a home.   Now many of us have home offices; our family members now have work/schools spaces ; creatives also make their art spaces sometimes carving space out of no where .  We call these spaces our Studio (someday I will have a 1000 sq foot studio maybe even more ! )  With some surprise arranging,   I re-imagined my workroom and created several  art making surfaces.  I ordered a firm table ,currently I use card tables,  the table should arrive next week , then I can film some demos for the blog.

I have two cats, Cookie and Gigi; well, Cookie found my cleared space just perfect for her lounging !  There is an invisible vortex phenomena.  The space is clear, all is in order and in a blink of an eye, there is chaos..

Yesterday, the morning revealed a spark of inspiration, happily I got to my work table;photographed images and went to the computer to document my collage.

Which led me to a spiral experience, first I had to unwind the files….clear out to make space on the computer…I tripped into ancestry files, cleared and organized those, then on to the image files to back up the system this weekend.  Before you know it, Gmail sent me a notice that my storage was full and please clear those files.

I was working in circles.  I have noticed that if I don’t fight it , I find a flow .  I didn’t get the collage made, but it might get done during this post.  If I relax from working in a straight line, allowing myself to move from what is arising, then circle back , holding the vision, while surrendering to response in the now, I do get somewhere, even tho there are linear mini steps along the way.   This is like scribble art,   allowing the pencil to move direction with a non destination destination.  You know it when you get there.  You step into the unknown , something magical happens. Quantum Alchemy , where you have created space to express; to achieve, to just be and then you just know what you may not have known before. You have entered the Pause, the Wave, the Flow.

I work in several collage styles to work with Expressive Arts, one of them is with Journey Circles™, another is in a Cosmic Smashbooking.  I keep many many visual journals, processing my dreams and feelings thru visual expression.

Working with image is a uniquely individual experience, we can create our own fresh, or use magazine or digital images. I keep a good printer to replicate images for collage, as magazines aren’t always accessible.

Creating anytime can be nourishing. Creating thru Covid Time, may be a way to keep record of the experience. 

Child of the Universe

The simple fact is that the world energies are immensely challenging.

The messages of the days are not always upbeat and cheery, that just isn’t real.

 

There is a continuum of expression within our Being.

My vocation is that of Depth Work.

Thru excavating  depths within, I find my Light and Radiance. Deep Diving.

Active participation with the mysterious Wheels of Life.

There is a popular notion that we are to become Embodied …what does that even mean ? Embodied into what ?  Release the Light within ?  Claim the Divine ?

This is where Art and Image come to Dance with Wisdom Codes.

Wisdom Codes around the Wheel of Life  unlock contemplative inner quests of Magic and Mystery.

Now , if I had all my IT  ( internet technologies ) together, I would link like mad to other resources.  This current website process is an Emergent One.  Just like our environment, our current world circumstances, they are Emergent, Quantum….Mysterious.   As the step is taken the stair appears.

We become Story Catchers.

We become Creative Cartographers with a Legacy.

                                                                                 This Summer, my world will become , as will yours.

As we move into questioning and contemplating these notions  by embracing playfulness , a spark of embodied consciousness might reveal itself, I think this is called, Self Awareness.  Our evolution of Self and Other.

Some mornings I awaken with certain poetic memories floating thru my mind.  This one came the other morning.  I truly longed to hear it.  Today, I share it with you. It is at the end of the post.

I listened to this; became very sad.   Grief comes and goes.  Important to acknowledge one’s tears and pain within the HeartSelf.  I will go paint my tender grief today, and it will become expressed.  Expressive Art making supports moving energy thru and out of the body, embracing the flow of the moment to arrive to an expressed balance place.

And if that stirred me then this poetic video that is at the beginning of my postcame forth, and I really began to cry.  I am reminded of all those whom I have loved and continue to adore.  Tender , tender tender memories.  So, I will mark make on my canvas with my tear water, and paint my prayers into the canvas.  Prayers and memories.  Joys and wounds will make their way into a work called “Artifact”

This is the poem which tugged at me this morning….what is tugging your Imagination ?  Your Heart ?

Creativity isn’t a step by step process.  It is emergent, messy, touching….inspiring.

Creativity Spirals, like Feminine Time.  Deep Spirals , calling forth more for the journey within and without.

Blueberries

I enjoy tracking my inspirations and signs from the natural world. For instance, I am kaleidoscope inspired , especially attracted to the vibrant purple in yesterday’s image…this led to organizing my watercolor paints to find which purples that I have on hand.

Today tho, the color search led to fruit…blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.  When blended together with Bing Cherry yogurt, they make a very colorful delicious smoothie.

Kaleidoscope

My visual theme for July is Kaleidoscope.  Do you recall having one as a child ?

Mesmerizing and magical, the kaleidoscope provides visual surprises, perhaps inspiring Mandala making with vibrant paints or paper play.

Coined by its Scottish inventor David Brewster, “kaleidoscope” is derived from the Ancient Greek word καλός (kalos), “beautiful, beauty”, εἶδος (eidos), “that which is seen: form, shape” and σκοπέω (skopeō), “to look to, to examine”, hence “observation of beautiful forms.” (Source Wikipedia )”Kaleidoscope by William Leigh, sold at London Christie's in 2000 ...

Today’s post, short and visually vibrant…..Sunday is my day to ponder and fuss, not to think so much.  The winds have picked up with a surprising strong breeze, a good afternoon rain will come…perhaps I will be fussing with my water color paints to find the purple that is in this image below ;  or I may print this image and create a collage …. What creative endeavor will you be inspired to express today ?

Discovering Treasures

The Wisdom Goddess Sophia  resides deep within the Archetypal Heart of our History, as She came before the before.

For I am knowledge and ignorance.
I am shame and boldness.
I am shameless; I am ashamed.
I am strength and I am fear.
I am war and peace.

The Thunder, Perfect Mind [1]

An excerpt above from the poem , Thunder Perfect Mind ( written before the before ) from the Gnostic manuscripts of the Nag Hammadi  discovered  in  1945 near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi … The buried manuscripts date from the 3rd and 4th centuries.

The Wisdom Goddess is speaking to me today on raindrop waves that have left the sweet scent of water to earth & trees that only rains can activate.   This special time , this Covid Time,  has touched us all with Change.

Within this initiation  which we are individually experiencing collectively, our world is shifting in front of our eyes…not from behind closed doors.  From home life to  work life, from village to city, from county to state to country the great change has arrived and will be here for some time.      Tomorrow the 4th of July will find us reflecting and celebrating, or not, in many different ways.   My heartfelt condolences goes out to those who have lost loved ones and those who are suffering, as this is also a time of deep grieving.

I am entering into a phase of sharing more of my work in the world. For many years I have been collecting , researching, training,  learning & now integrating Knowledge with Wisdom, plus I have been cultivating an active Creative Practice.  This takes work !

With our extended “Nesting in Place”  surrounded by my books and papers. I am learning the back office  of Zoom while creating my teaching site on the Kajabi platform, I am taking my own dare to devotion more seriously.

Having rediscovered my extensive library of Human Design Courses . Once I get my calendar set, I will begin with a free class of Living Your Design .  This complementary series will be : Introduction to Bodygraph Basics, the Centers & Types.

The Gene Keys Golden Path integrates with Human Design; both systems illuminating  the path of self knowledge to Wisdom. The Divine Feminine; Stargate Alchemist  lives within these teachings.

Thru various creative processes we shall travel the fractal lines of archetypal mystery  to reveal to ourselves treasures that lie within.

We will begin however, with a bit of conversation over a cup of tea.
