Art Blog: Faith

faith low res

Let Go. Let God. Isn’t that what faith is all about? Knowing that no matter what happens, He is there for you, He has a master plan for you. In the end, you know you will land on your two feet, but you gotta have ‘faith, faith, faith’ 🙂

I read somewhere that the phrase “do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times. That it is a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless. Isn’t that all about letting your faith be bigger than your fears? How does it get even more amazing than that? 🙂

I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.

Art Blog: Dandelions

Dandelions low res

Some people get addicted to people, to drama, to situations, to drugs, to certain types of foods. When we try to break that addiction, we realize how difficult it is. Some give up and go back to living the same old life. Some dig deep down and find courage within. We understand consciously how hard it will be to let go, and we accept the ‘temporary’ hardship, knowing that on the other side, something new awaits us.

Letting go is for the courageous. Sticking to the path takes even more courage. Accepting that you have an addiction and that you want to change it, evolve from it … that in itself is a huge step. It’s very similar to the life of a dandelion.

Although dandelions sometimes are classified as weeds, their lives symbolize rebirth of something new. The wind blows, and their spores disperse and land far away, somewhere new, where they prosper and grow. Having the courage to allow the winds of change to blow through your life as you let go of your addiction, you land up somewhere completely new, different, unexplored. And yet it is here that you bloom, prosper and grow.

I created this artwork using oil paints on paper.

Art Blog: I AM … Chris

Karmic Loop low resI AM … Chris.

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.

I was listening to Tamra Oviatt’s sacred activation Releasing Karmic Loop when I started working on this portrait. And it made me think …  I have friends who go through phases where they look back and think ‘OMG why am I attracting the same nasty boss over and over again? Why do I keep attracting an upgraded version of my ex boyfriend/ girlfriend? Why is this loop of uncertainty, this loop of loss and sorrow never ending?’ Lots and lots of loops and hoops to jump through. Sounds complicated. But is it?

The choice to break this karmic ‘loop’ lies within you. It’s not about blaming the world around us or even blaming yourself. It’s not about thinking ‘oh my God Karma has it in for me’. It is literally about you owning yourself, owning the ground where you stand, and committing to yourself that ‘this’ has got to change. And when you take the first small step towards the change, towards you, then everything starts to release, everything starts to move in your life.

Chris is all about taking that first step towards change, towards releasing that stuck stagnant energy within you. Towards owning the authentic YOU you truly be. Chris is all about letting go of the old, letting go of patterns, letting go of guilt and shame. He is all about breaking through the shackles and lies we have been told about Karma. Chris is all about embracing change, and knowing deep within you lies  power to change.
