I’ve been writing a lot in here lately about my painting. The broader scope lies in trying to define art or an artist.
All art really is, regardless of the form it takes, is a shift in perspective; an openness to what is often overlooked.
A Course in Miracles defines this shift in perspectives as a miracle.
So if we put those two statements together, art is a form of a miracle. We are capable of creating art with every interaction with every other life form we come into contact with every single day.
We don’t have to aspire to be recognized as a great poet, painter, or musician. If you happen to have a talent for those forms of expression, that is wonderful and you should by all means practice it and let those expressions be an opportunity to shift a perspective for your audience, one truth at a time.
But it isn’t necessary. Don’t discount the art of simply living your life as a true expression of who you are as a spiritual being of light. The opportunities for change and growth and love are endless. The gift of expressing that love IS art.
Take a deep cleansing breath and send gratitude for the opportunities of this expression.
Don’t waste precious time being asleep and going through the motions. This is our time! Go out and celebrate the artist you are!

I am a 42 year old mother of 3, living in Florida with my partner and youngest child. Like the mythological phoenix, I have been reborn out of the ashes of my former way of life and have, for the last several years, set out on an exploration of self expression through visual art and creative writing. I am immensely grateful to feel a part of every living thing in existence and the emergence of a growing evolution of consciousness within and throughout. I am interested in all aspects of energy healing and spiritual transformation and have just recently become a student of Reiki. I understand there is always a choice and I try to choose love over fear at every turn. I am grateful for all of the other women in this group and for their ever present support and guidance.
