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!
" When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, " I used everything you gave me. " Erma Bombeck

Excuses / Sunday August 1, 2010

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.

Illustration Inspiration / Sunday, July 18, 2010

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.

Sitting On The Back Burner!

I have been neglecting Fashion Church. Maybe It's because I called the blog "Church"! I used to always find an excuse to skip real Church. Too tired. Too lazy. Uninspired. But I need to remember this forum is a creative outlet, nothing more, but nothing less.
"Church" or in this case, "Creativity" can be any day, anywhere! 
Today, I vow to renew my creative spirit. What will you do to renew today ?

Have a Creative Week,
Peace and Love.......
