This may seem like a weird concept. But many psychologists, mystics, scholars and teachers believe that creativity is a direct link to "THE SOURCE". The creator. The never-ending creative spirit that only wants happiness and joy for us. The energy field that is constantly creating and allowing us to feel whole and complete when we too are a part of this process. Whether by planting a garden, creating a new fashion look, drawing , writing and so on ! I hope to share with others my ideas, creativity and spiritual energies . I believe when we share our creativity with each other, we are in a state of perfection. Zen. Harmony. We are feeling our true calling. Not what our Parents told us to feel or be, nor our spouses, nor society. But what our souls truly desire.
I am looking forward to sharing my creativity with others. We are ALL geniuses. We are all beautiful and whole, just as we are. By following our hearts, we are following what the Source intended for us, which is to simply feel good. Feel God! Here's to feeling our true inner goddesses singing! Dancing! Living and Loving life-as intended!

Sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration to get me started thinking in a creative way. An image I find on the web, and outfit someone created or a cool DIY project. I have been really into the Art Nouveau images and the flapper styles lately. Enjoy !
Have a creative week :)

So many times in life I have put another person "on a pedestal ", above me. Better than me or smarter than me. Prettier than me and more talented than me. More than Me, period. Why do we do this ? A friend in this crazy thing called life recently reminded me that we are all of the same Light. We all come from the same source and there is no heirarchy within this light. It just IS. Pure. Equally bright and equally dim all at the same time. Suddenly life has gained a shiny and new perspective when I heard that for the first time painted in that way. No one lives above me, nor below me. We all live in the same light :)
Then, if you flip the notion over, I have often found myself on the "other side of the coin". High and Mighty. Judgemental . One who needed to judge others in order to feel better about myself. It is a lonely place to be, for sure. No one can live up to Perfection's standards. Not even the Queen herself. Kind of an enigma, huh. Maybe a Queen Has to be a Queen to feel OK. But, as all Queen's eventually do, they fall. Stumble and make their court angry. I'll remain a sun-soaked serf today ;)
These last images are so awesome !
I found them at trendland.net.
They are part of a series by AlexandFelix, called Thirteen Queens.
They are photographed using NO computer imaging !!!
How creative and cool is that ?

I find myself "finding myself" lately .
As a huge Wayne Dyer fan, we watched his PBS special called " Excuses Begone" last night. I too believe that we can find a million excuses to remain in pain, But I also believe that we have the power to free ourselves of pain as well. Ever say to yourself, "I just don't have time" , or "It would take a very long time to accomplish this task", or "I can't afford it", or " I have always been this or that way", or " I can't change it because it's genetic". It really doesn't matter what the desire is, you can use these excuses on just about any subject , from weight loss to finding the job of your dreams, or even feeling better mentally and physically.
So, where do these excuses come from ? Some might say their parents, society, their mate and so on. But the truth is, the excuses come from ME !!! I have been programmed to think in a negative way. The key is: I programmed myself ! I don't do anything that I don't reap some reward from.
Example: Depression. The reward: to check out of "real life".
Crummy job. The reward: I don't have to risk rejection or take on added responsibility.
Feeling bad in general. The reward: Pity from others and an excuse to not participate in life.
So what is the solution ? I can ask myself this simple question. What would my life look like if I couldn't use excuses ? So, I will meditate and visualize myself in the exact situation I really want to be in. I will call on the creative imagination to start removing these negative excuses. I believe that what I put "out there" is what I will get back in return. It's really easy to forget that ! SEE, an excuse !
The conclusion? Don't believe everything you think !
I can re-program my thoughts !
What a wonderful and exciting gift we have and fail to use. The imagination. It is so powerful.
The placebo effect has proven that we have the power within our thoughts to create and fulfill our desires !
Just for Today, I call on the creative inspiration that resides within everything.
I am whole, happy and I attract boundless joy and peace.

Where does Inspiration come from ? I believe it comes from everywhere, everyday. If only we are paying attention when it strikes. I believe that artists are dreamers. They see beauty in ordinary objects that most people are "too busy" to notice. In nature, the colors of the sky, which are many, the movement in a leaf as it floats gently about, or is fiercely blown around. The subtle lines and sharp edges in a rosebush and so on.
"Dreamer's" are not lazy, uninspired creatures, but the opposite! Ever try to meditate? Not as simple as one might think. To sit, quietly and allow inspiration to come to us, whether than trying to force a concept from beneath the jumbled thoughts of an ordinary mind is truly an art. These illustrations are a symbol of a higher process of creativity. A thought put onto a medium, created by the divine. Then to be created into a wearable piece of art, which began as a lovely thought in a dreamer's mind and imagination. How divine!
This week, I will take time out of the "ordinary" thoughts that rumble and rage through my mind, and lazily tap into the art of inspiration.
