You know when change is afoot, or when you need to shift energies big time. It is confusing at first. You turn one way, and something begins to move in unexpected places. It feels scary; then you stop. You tiptoe in another direction and your heart begins to race. A flood of emotions come to the surface. Fears from the past, voices from the committee in your head loudly cautioning you against any drastic move.
You stop and search for any untrue fears and decide to accept them. You know in your heart that you must move forward and cross the bridge while you watch the fears grow…Yet you courageously proceed nonetheless. Adrenaline rushes through every cell in your body now and it appears that the ground is moving so fast that you may fall. Yet you allow it. You feel dizzy, very dizzy. You may even faint…
Then the circles and spirals appear, implying the pure spaciousness of spirit. Seeing wholeness, you are speechless as heaven opens its vast arms and envelopes you in its bosom. Suddenly you notice the bright lights in the center of the myriad of vortexes. It is the creative force exploding into new life. The green light in the vortexes beckons you into its very center whispering a gentle song of love and then; there is no more confusion, nor darkness. A calm ensues and you see that the ruby lights mirror the light within your heart; your truth. You are home now, ready to write a new chapter of your life.
This is the process I went through in creating the multi-layered, visually textured painting I simply call Change, a 20″ x 24″ mixed media on canvas. I can travel through its surface, stopping on each of the eight I-Ching trigrams within it, and the emotions rush through me, experiencing each layer that lead me to shift and trust in the perfection of the shift. It is real. It is powerful and I am transformed by it. There is no return. Forgiveness and compassion surrounds me and it is allowing me to focus on each precious now moment. I feel strong as I write the next chapter of my humanness.
