Creating art via journalling/digital ap and sharing it. Also I’ve decided to write a poem about my art!!
I’m really encouraged to post this today. Haven’t blogged in ages. A few days ago I said a difficult thing to a family member. It’s hard for me to say how I feel believe it or not. I was more worried about how she’d feel than actually being true to myself and how I was feeling. But the greatest sign that I was right was straight afterwards I was creatively inspired and it was easy. For quite some time I’ve been blank again.. Uninspired and unmotivated.. So it really has shown me the way through!!
It was like my heart channel was opened again. I easily completed two art pieces!! This is the third! Plus a poem!!
The thing that surprised me also was spiritually I felt the art was more powerfully expressing in a deeper way than ever before.. This is the most exciting thing. Because you know it’s felt such a fruitless, long, lonely path. Just existing really. But to see such depth of meaning from flat, boring, blank, what seems lifeless months.. Shows me all is not lost.. I have been learning in this vacuum of what feels no mans land.
It is absolutely true you see Gods Spirit with you most acutely in your weakest state. You know your lack well. You know all that isn’t happening.. HE is that oomph from your empty vessel.. Gives you unbelievable hope!!
Isn’t this the reason for poetry and painting? To express what we cannot say in common language?

I think it’s the reason also we fall so short.. So that the rising is so much more beautiful in its unfolding.
Sometimes you can’t express yourself the way everyone else does so you choose to find another way. You might not even do things the way everyone else does or do things everyone else thinks you should do.
Sometimes to say how you feel is not socially acceptable. It makes you look pathetic and weak instead of brave. Sometimes things happen to you and the world around you doesn’t listen or are not open to hear you.. Writing and art is my way to express what I’m feeling and I love love love doing it!! It’s a freedom that I truly don’t use enough..
Feels like drowning.
Beneath deep waters.
Keep me submerged.
I must throw off restraint.
Look fear in the eye.
Allow truth to surface.
Buoyant spirit to arise.
Falseness give up its deathly grip.
Slipping away into dark abyss.
Alive with spirit wings.
Where naked soul is welcome.
Where honesty is desirable.
Where fear is no more.
Unshackled in the wind.
Soaring in the ebb and flow.
