Emergence & Reconnection

Synchronicity.  Movement. Sharing. Friendship.  All leads to emergence from one space in time and reconnection with all time.

Synchronicity and Collage!

This morning I woke up and felt like I could see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.  I felt like I had moved through some of the sadness I had been carrying and could breathe a little easier.  Earlier I had thought of bringing recent feelings to art, but the energy for that never arose.  

Then I opened my email and found the email from DailyOasisCollage.com.  This is a wonderful free newsletter from Mili & Johnny Dillard  that shares collages and one I contribute to.  What I found in the was the collage of the day was one of my very own about fear which I had created months ago. 

Seeing it today was a wonderful reminder, via my own art work traveling on the web from another time spot, that I made it through these places before.  Reminding me again that life is always changing and the ever-present Light and fuller truth is always waiting for us to recognize it again. 

I wrote to Mili sharing this synchronicity and told her I was inspired to create an Reconnecting to the Light piece.  It hasn't emerged yet, but it's definitely percolating.

I shared this collage in this blog previously.


Mili and Johnny are both facilitators of a process called Soul Collage® - described at SoulCollage.com as "a creative and satisfying collage process. You make your own deck of cards - each collage card representing one aspect of your personality or Soul. Use the collage cards intuitively to answer life's questions and participate in self-discovery. Joyfully deepen your understanding of the relationships between your personality parts, you and your family/community/world, and you and your dreams, symbols, and Spirit."

Here is a collage from Mili

'I Am An Intuitive Transformative Artist,
one who stands before the magic canvas seeing all the possibilities
from which I choose to create my art, from which I choose to co-create my life.'

My dear friend and art buddy, Deb Booth of DifferentLightStudio.com, introduced me to Daily Oasis and is also a collage contributor.

'I Am One Who Believes That I Am Cared For and Renewed,
even as the Earth begins her journey into Winter.
The Frost leaves will provide a blanket for the seed within to grow when the time is right. 

As my dear friends, the Orion group say, 'We are always speaking to and for each other.'  And art is one of the languages we share.

Joy of Books

This added an element of delight to my day, so I decided to share it.  Enjoy!

Art Moves The Energy

Recently I went through a difficult time.  Emotions were high. Disappointments were discovered. Expectations not met.  Caring tried to stay present through it all, but pain was felt.  After a bit I found myself in the studio and was able through art to let the emotions and situation find its own expression and felt some transformation.  The inner space is still tender but now I feel some spaciousness to continuing examining things.

In this piece, nails, broken mirror, rocks and chains and a discombobulated doll come together in a 5"x3"x2"  stained and painted box to express pain and vulnerability and the frustration of feeling unable to effect the situation.
