The solar eclipse we had recently felt very powerful to me. I feel like it was trying to relay with it’s energy for us to pay attention. It seems like the eclipse started a wave of natural disasters and other things happening that we should take a serious look at. I think we are needing to take a look at our humanity, the way we treat others and our earth. I don’t think there’s any question that our earth is angry right now, but many of us are not paying attention. It’s time….
Have you ever had amazing ‘coincidences’ when you are involved in doing something you absolutely love & have a passion for?
I have always known I was going to be an artist, since I was a little kid. Just waited around till things were going to be ‘perfect’ so I could start working at it. Well, eventually I got tired of waiting and with encouragement I started ‘doing’. I decided to ‘be’ an artist about 17 years ago, but I would say the last 7 years I have been truly serious about it. I do go through ups and downs in my creating periods, but I know how to make my magic happen.
I noticed that when I go through periods of not painting much, work would not sell, or there did not seem to be interest in my work. When I paint, or spend a lot of time at the studio, magically interest in my work comes out of nowhere! I will have people I don’t know contact me to buy artwork (once someone found one of my business cards in a parking lot, picked it up and ended up buying 2 paintings!), I will get invited to do shows I have not submitted to, or get contacted by a tv station to do a story on my work. Coincidence??? I think it’s magic!
I believe when we are truly aligned with our life purpose, with our truth, the universe helps us by placing magic in our path.
Try it out!!! Pay attention to the little awesome coincidences that happen as you are loving life. Yep, that’s Magic!!
I am done with giving my energy to all the negative horrible news, bombarding me non-stop. I have had so many thoughts running through my head, so I thought I would put them down in a post to share. Some will agree with what I say, some will not. But I thought I would get this off my chest and move on.
The last year or so I have been on a search. You could call it a search for myself or a search for inner peace or a search for happiness. Some will probably say I am in a “dream world”, or I am naive, but if you just allow yourself to open your mind you may see a different point of view.
Peace, we all say we want it. But how do we exactly achieve it? I do believe that we will never achieve it with violence (of any kind). I believe that if we truly cared about others, their happiness, their well-being, we would eventually have peace. We have to get out of our “what’s in it for me” mentality, well-being for everyone will only make things better for everyone (this includes healthcare, both physical & mental). I think peace is contagious and it spreads. Peace cannot be forced on someone. It has to be shown by example. ANYTHING negative or violent will NEVER achieve peace.
Guns = negativity = destruction. There is nothing positive that would ever come from them. You may try to rationalize it but the bottom line is all they do is destroy, that IS their function. You can say protecting yourself is positive, but if your mentality is about protection, you are not thinking peace and it’s a negative thought.
People are not born wanting to hurt others. That is put into people’s minds. Everyday there is violence and negative energy on the news, on tv shows, on the roads and people’s attitudes. Have you ever tried to say something nice or help someone that was angry toward you or meant harm? Maybe you should try it and you may be surprised! I do believe everyone wants to be loved, it’s human nature, and a lot of people have never been given that.
Ok, I have expressed my opinion. I will now stop commenting, “liking”, re-tweeting posts related to the horrible event from yesterday. I will stick to my usual positive thoughts. You may comment or share this post. I will not comment on positive or negative thoughts, all my thoughts are above. I will approve comments as long as they are constructive whether positive or negative.
Thank you for listening.
