Santa Fe Artist, Kendall Scott happily brings you this innovative approach to intuitive and expressive creativity.  Images seen here are from a variety of her personal Cosmic Smashbooks. Not all pages are of faces, this is just what she love to paint! Kendall is a Certified Creative Depth Coach and Intentional Creativity Teacher. She has been creating as a Cosmic Smashbook artist for several years and is celebrating her certification overseen by its originator Catt Geller.

There it is, the page.

There it is, in front of you, the page.

Empty, Waiting….sshhhhh, whisper softly…the page awaits…

A blank page can be overwhelming in its potential…shall you write, draw, paint or walk a way  ? Today’s topic began one way, in a blink it became about trees.  Creativity often works that way…you may think it will be one way but the variables start to dance about and presto, another way presents itself.

 

Imagine the nature of trees as they give so much to us as environmental friends and symbolic allies. The breath of life flows thru them from root to tippy top branch. How are you honoring your inner tree ?   Do you live where there are trees or parks ?  Have you touched the bark of a tree lately ? Visited a tree farm ? Watch how a backhoe digs a very wide and deep hole in the earth to plant a tree ?  Maybe you have observed trees over time, from sapling to maturity ?

As the trees are transforming into the spectrum of colors this season,  how are you connecting to the change of seasons within you ?  Your leaves may also be changing colors and shedding,  what are you noticing this season ?

 

Mini-Journal prompt:  Tools: Pencil or charcoal and paper or any creative tool that calls to you….. Take the paper outside to a tree place it on the bark…rub the lead of the pencil/charcoal over the bark…notice the patterns that are left… in your journal either trace or re-draw the bark, do the first on slowly…like really really slowly….then increase the speed of your drawing….attend with your observable awareness your fingers, the pencil/paper and bark designs….

Observe your awareness as you participate in this process, notice what you are feeling or seeing that rises up in your imagination….either write your observation or just write one word which has come into your mind.

Committment

 

Commitment:

the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.

This morning I was pondering Commitment, I was also pondering Human Design  (which which is a system deeply based in choice. There are 5 Body Types in the system… ( basically 4, but there is a 5th much debated about). Each Type has a way that they can respond  and/or accept ( or not ) an action step or direction that carries them on their way. There are start and stop codons just as in DNA and there is a starting gate as well.

I am a Generator with a response of ahh ha…meaning yes  or un un meaning no……A Generator has a defined Chakra or Center deep in its Sacral Center…and if the vehicle( your body = the vehicle in HD lingo ) expresses Ahh ha , yes, deep visceral response that is an Affirmative  and the deep visceral response of the Un un is the opposite… as mentioned this is deep in the Sacral Center.  You make want to practice with a friend to discover what your deep sacral responses feel like.

Sacral Session Handout 

Now what has that got to do with commitment?  I am really not too sure, but what I am thinking is that as a conditioned being it can be really challenging to integrate Human Design into your life.  What if you said yes….and then don’t feel the yes any more ? What do you do with your commitment ?   I sense that there is an evolution that occurs from commitment to devotion when your passion ignites.  Of course their are distinctions  between commitments from the mundane to one’s world overview.

Human Design is complex, yet when you learn it layer by layer and weave it into your world you begin to have some insights and expanded experiences in your consciousness and also in the directions that your life may or may not unfold into.

Subtle shifts occur for us when we introduce transforming awareness technologies into our lives , we also enter into unfamiliar landscapes of change.  This is where art and particularly working with Art as Process is beneficial.

Art as Process is an approach within art making that holds to no visual end goal.

Weekend

The weekends can be a magical time of no time. Time for a movie, time for walking without destination. Time to sketch and journal without an end goal.  

 

There is a pleasure in moving “with time” and also in being ” in time” without pressure . I enjoy spending hours researching and learning.  I often take a moment on the weekend to learn new software technology, even if that is just learning how to grok Instagram or create an Etsy store. 

The weekend is a time where there seems to be some freedom of choice for how I spend my time. I can rest, read, pursue study, catch up on projects, go with the flow.   I can bounce from project to project, the “have to” pressure is off.   Yet, in actuality, I often work on weekend to catch up the “have to ” commitments and self promises.

 

 

 

 

 

Venusian Stargates

Venus ~ Archetypal Goddess of Love ~  creates a rose in the heavens which sweetly holds our planet.

 She is poised to enter the underworld today in the 44th Gene Key, where she will travel for 42 days and nights, out of sight ,under the horizon she will emerge in November as a Morning Star in the 32nd Gene Key.  During her journey in the underworld, she will visit several Stargates; 

                               Siddhi               Gift                            Shadow

10/5          44      Synarchy              Teamwork             Interference                            

10/16       28     Immortality         Totality                     Purposelessness

10/29       50      Harmony             Equilibrium             Corruption

11/19        32     Veneration          Preservation          Failure

I haven’t written about this much lately so for those of you new to my hearth, here are a few notes. 

The I Ching , an ancient divination system, has re-awakened in our time through two refreshingly inspired systems, one, the Human Design System, the other, the Gene Keys ~ The Golden Path.   Each compliments the other as well as stimulates the conversation of the Kabbalah, Tree of Life, Astrology and the Chakra systems.  Essentially , these systems are portals into the celestial world of metaphor and symbol. Each offers a unique application template.   You are the vessel, your birth time determines the placement of your codes also correlating to the astrological zodiac.

This is a special Venusian retrograde for me, as the hidden gift in my sequence is the 44th Gene Key, at the time of my determined codex…Mars was in this Soul Code of the 44th Stargate.  This leaves me a bit speechless. All I feel I can do right now is watch the movie, as I have been contemplating the mystery of my Venus Sequence for years.  Sometimes with deep focused attention and at other times holding the entire mystery in wonderment.
