Not the hocus-pocus-pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat kind of magic, but the ‘real magic’!
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!!
Wow, I can’t believe I have not written a post since 2014! A whole lot has changed for me, and life is great!
I have learned a lot over the last few years and as I collect my thoughts I will try my best to share. One thing I know for sure is, doing what you love definitely helps you align with your true self, the person you were born to be. And when you do that, you really and truly notice the universe working with and for you!!!
I have been painting a lot and traveling some the last few years. It’s what I am passionate about. I used to tell my friends that when I paint, magic happens. And it does! When I noticed nothing was really happening for me “art-career wise”, it was because I was not painting. As soon as I started painting I got invited to do a show this summer, be a juror for a statewide competition, and I have two shows lined up for 2018! When things like that happen, I know I am doing what I am meant to!
