What’s Your Color For The Week?

What’s Your Color For The Week?

Do you ever choose a color that you will focus on for the week?

My color for this a week is Lavender

Six weeks ago I started Nicole Cody’s 9 week Journal Challenge.  I love Nicole’s work and thought this would be fun and it was time to start a new art style journal. One of the focus points is to allow a color to emerge for the week. This is done in a short meditation and for me each week, so far, a new color has appeared.

Here is this week’s meditation from the Blab session last Monday evening- you can see the whole session here

I would love to see some of you dropping in. You just need a twitter account. It is a cross between skype and google hangouts and very social.   blabUsing a guiding stone/crystal and a meditation I choose a color to focus on for the week. I then with a pen of that color I write in my journal  about the color, how it makes me feel and all the things I can think of that are that color. I might then wear that color, eat that color food and be aware of that color during the week.

For instance this week I have been aware of more people wearing lavender, yet there are almost no lavender color clothes for sale in the shops here.

These are the colors that have been in my life over the past 6 weeks. I am sharing the images I have painted and created so far.

Week One. PINK

I love the color pink, it makes a bold statement- Samuel Larsen

Week 2 GREEN

The color of the heart chakra, of nature, growth, self-worth, of spinach, lettuce, kale, peas and beans, Green has so many shades and so many stories to tell

Week 3 PURPLE my fave colour. The color of the Crown Chakra,  a regal and spiritual. The colour of grapes, jacaranda, lavender and more.

Week 4: BLUE and this week I painted  my dancing heart. Blue is the color of the throat chakra, of trust, some say business, the sea and sky and comes in so many delicious shades.

Week 5 ORANGE   This painting I used for this week’s heart whisper ezine with changed words. I was focusing on my sacral chakra when I painted this. 

Orange

Week 6.   Lavender  Another of my fave colors and the morning  before I chose this color one of the farmers had bunches of lavender for sale- not one of his usual items- yes I bought a bunch plus a new bottle of lavender oil.

Do You Listen To Your Spirit Guides?

Do You Listen To Your Spirit Guides?

Do You Have A Spirit Guide?

Last week I did a follow up class from Soul Art Day and the painting above was my interpretation that flowed from the spirit guide ritual that I did with Laura Hollick.

We were asked to focus on some questions that you want an answer to and what you would love to receive guidance on.

My questions were:

  • What’s in my face was the first one.
  • What is present for me at this time?
  • How can I move from lack into abundance?
  • How can I step joyfully into my leadership?

Then we did a visualization where we went behind ourselves and stepped into our heart

Here is what my spirit guide shared with me:

Coming into my heart from the back was all black I was then led to a large amethyst crystal that led down a quartz crystal path to a rainbow bridge. Spirit Guide asked me to step into the rainbow as this was my way forward and my next step on my path to abundance.  I heard: “art to sell,  your art, as creativity is your way forward now as this is your love, brings you joy and following this will take you from the black into the light!”

[Tweet “This will take you from the black into the light!”]

I spent about 40 minutes finishing the painting, I was conscious that it was breakfast time but I just kept painting until I felt it was complete. This is my joy- time just evaporates when I am doing what I love.

That night I went to a winter Solstice evening where we did a ceremony where we let go of what was holding us back and set intentions to move forward towards one’s intention.

I was delighted as this flowed on from my spirit guide ritual from the morning and I formed the following intention which is my current screen saver.

Do you have a spirit guide? How do you connect?

I would love to hear from you in the comments

Do You Ask Your Heart Whispers To Guide You On Your Why?

Do You Ask Your Heart Whispers To Guide You On Your Why?

ask-on--your-why

I drew thaske ask card from Daily Guidance with your Angels on Thursday morning and then I read Nicole Cody’s post “That Asking Space”.  This was on asking for your why. I felt that there was a big message for me here.

Ms Independence has had a challenge asking  for help, anyone else get that? Over the past few weeks I have been actively asking more and more. I know I can’t do it all alone!

Since I opened my asking heart I have attracted such support and abundance:

The best thing is I really can feel a shift within and others are commenting on it 🙂  It has taken me a long while and a lot of inner work to get to this point.

Back to  discovering your why.

I have noticed several instances this week where people have been saying they still don’t know what their why is or they are missing joy in their life.

Reading Nicole’s post I was inspired to meditate on my why, to make sure I was really, really clear,

I took myself down to the beach with some meditation music, my journal and an open heart.

beach-kirra

 First I walked, then went for a swim, before positioning myself in the sun for my asking meditation.

Getting Real Clarity on Your Why

I asked: Am I on the right path? 

 These words flowed onto my journal:

You are here to paint and create art. Your messages come through your art as it comes from your heart.The words flow from what you see and feel as you paint and what we tell you. 🙂

You help other people open and listen to their heart whispers which brings them a sense of freedom to follow their own heart and get true clarity on what they truly do desire.

This is a special gift you have so please do not delay any longer. You know you are loved.

Your art brings joy to you and onto others.

My heart sang. Since the messages I got about color and freedom last week I knew that my Art was to play a bigger part in my life and my business.

To help you, with your why I have recorded a short Asking Meditation ( 5.55 minutes) you can listen below or download it here onto your computer or phone.

If you would like me to work with you to get clarity on your why just go here

I would love to hear from you in the comments on how you discovered your why?

Can Waiting Be A Good Thing?

Can Waiting Be A Good Thing?

Wait Oracle Card

Do You Like To Wait?

Or does waiting suck for you?

Maybe you are good at waiting?

Waiting can be a sign to relax and practice patience.

Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting. –Joyce Meyer

I have become much better at practicing patience. I know this has been one of the positives of my healing journey.

Yesterday when I drew the Wait card from Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Cards by Doreen Virtue,my first reaction was:  OH NO! I seem to have been waiting and things are piling up. I have been concerned that I was falling back into overwhelm

I then read the message:– Don’t rush into action right now. Bide your time for better results. There was then a further message that struck a chord and I heard pay attention:)

If you take action now, you’ll miss a window of opportunity that’s coming up for you shortly. Don’t worry, you will know in your heart and gut when that moment arrives. In the meantime, it’s important to meditate and make sure your breathing is deep, often when we worry and are stressed we forget to breathe. You are also on the verge of receiving new information that will alter the course of action you plan to take, leading you in a more positive direction.

(Interesting I thought I thought I had finally got clarity on my direction.)  I kept reading:

By waiting the outcome will be much more enjoyable than if you took action without this added information. 

AFFIRM: I have infinite patience and I am Divinely directed to always be in the right place at the perfect time.

I meditated on these words and then journaled. Journaling reminded me of my  dream to empower 1000 people or more to love themselves fully, saying yes I am worthy, I am love, I do matter, I do make a difference by who I am and how I be.

I have still been unclear on how I would do this.  I put my journal away and went back to my daily tasks. Not really giving this another thought………….

Sometimes the universe does deliver and patience pays off!

Today I was in the right place at the perfect time and discovered a way to begin to put my dream into action.  No I am not going to spill the beans today. I can tell you that the focus will be on Creative Self-Love.

 So maybe waiting and being patient is a virtue?

Waiting may be your gift in disguise.

waiting-quoteDo you have an experience of where waiting opened a new course of action for you?

Have You Shared Your Soul Story With The World?

Have You Shared Your Soul Story With The World?

Sharing My Soul Story:

Today I am honoured that my soul story has been shared on Soul Speak by Jodi Chapman.

Soul Story

“Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing.” ― Thérèse de Lisieux: Story of a Soul, Chapter VIII 

So what is a Soul Story?

Jodi says: It’s that moment in your life when you realized there was much more to you than just a human body. It’s that moment where you remembered that you had a soul. It’s that moment where you felt on a deep level your connection to everything in the universe. It’s that moment where you felt completely loved and filled with light. It’s all of these things. 

Today at Suzie TV I share with you my soul story which was a big wake up call for me:

Color Prescription 7: The Crown Chakra

Color Prescription 7: The Crown Chakra

Working with The Color Violet and The Crown Chakra

crown chakra

“Spiritual liberation is not at all a mere affair of the intellect, but rather the realization of the inmost Self, the inward vision of the soul, and the transcendence of the personality.” —Yogi Ramsuratkumar

Violet is the color of the amethyst, lavender, violets, lilac, of loyalty, of spirituality, of trust and knowing   White, silver and gold are often attributed to being colours of the crown chakra. White and gold are the colours I use when I am doing a chakra opening meditation, where I draw the gold in through the crown and the white, violet and purple I use for protection around my whole body and anything else too. I often use white energy as a circle of light around my house. I remember once  when we were living in Sydney, a relative coming to visit and he was quite horrified that we had the back gate open and that he could walk in. I told him that was okay I had a circle of light around my property. It seems to work for me.

The Crown Chakra is a door of universal energy and conscience. Through it you can reach a higher state of awareness. It has been said that when the crown chakra is open you connect with the Divine source of universal life.

I liked these words from Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections  A Tale of One Woman’s Journey to Chakra Energy awakening by Mary Jo Shaffer

7th chakra is said to have a dual nature- Physical manifestation on one hand and the absence of anything physical on the other. It is mutlidimensional and ever expanding with thought and consciousness, At this last chakra level. meditation is an indispensable tool for achieving higher consciousness, as is communion with nature. As you begin exploring your 7th chakra, know that this is not a destination, and that your journey in it will never end.

The brief color meditation includes a series of paintings I have done as well plus some digital imagery from the paintings on the Crown Chakra

Here are 7 ways I have found that help in opening my crown chakra:

  Be in silence: This might be first thing in the morning before the noise of the world starts. I do get up early today, it was 4am and I painted, then drew a card, did my morning pages and meditated before Des was up and about.

  Spend time in SolitudeIt might be taking time out in nature. I know for me the beach is one of the places that I do feel in touch with the divine and my true self. Nicole Cody talks about this in her blog Cauldrons and Cupcakes today in her post A little Solitude is good for the Soul.

  Meditation: might be a breath mediation where I focus just on my breath which brings me to stillness and leaves my sometimes monkey mind at the door.

 QiGong : I have a 20 minute cd that is use that calms the mind and centres the body. Yoga is also an excellent way to help open your crown chakra.

 Be and Choose Love: When we love and accept ourselves we come from our heart and we release any tension, then we are open to connect with our divine , our intuition and more.

 Use an Amethyst or Quartz Crystal carry one with you- not something I do after losing several. I do have an amethyst by my bed and on my altar along with Quartz Crystals.

  Draw A Card or do a reading each day. My card today from The Archangel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue or use the Divine Guidance cards from Cheryl Lee Harnish
