Art Blog: I AM … Madeline

Breathe Peace low res

I AM … Madeline.

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.

When things go haywire in our lives, our first reaction is to quickly hold onto the pieces. When the pieces crumble, we are left with the emotions. And that’s something we end up holding close to our hearts.

We hold on to sorrow, grief, shame, anger, disappointment, hurt … as though we are holding on to our children. There is nothing wrong in feeling those emotions. Feel it. Breathe your way through it. As you keep breathing and feeling every emotion, you will actually feel it work it’s way out of your body. And you will start to breathe in a lot of peace.  That’s when we actually give peace a chance to work it’s magical way into our lives, and into the vibrations of the planet.

Madeline reminds us that no matter how hard you think life can get. you have the ability to breathe peace into each and every moment of your lives? Can you imagine how amazing that would feel? 🙂

I used charcoal to create this on paper.

Art Blog: I AM … Adam

Ex's Energy low resI AM … Adam

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.

Adam is your Ex. He’s the person that you loved so deeply that your life began and ended with him. He’s the person that you believed was your THE ONE.  But he’s also THE person who broke your heart into tiny little pieces. He’s the person that walked away without a thought and threw all your dreams into the fury of the winds.

And yet, a part of you holds on (not knowing why). A part of you keeps going around in circles, wondering what went wrong, the ‘what ifs’, the ‘could haves’, the ‘should haves’ … they all start cropping up, driving you mad. You want to really move on, you want to walk happily into another relationship but yet … something keeps you stuck in the past.

It’s very easy for me to say ‘Let go’.  And your next sentence would be ‘Ok howwwww? You think I haven’t tried’? To be honest, all I can say is that you need to keep breathing through all the emotions that arise. Be it anger, sadness, grief … breathe and feel it move out of you. Breathe through the tears. Breathe through the pain you feel in your heart, in your soul.

Only by acknowledging what you are honestly feeling will you actually be able to let go of Adam … with love, grace and gratitude. You will feel things starting to shift, you will feel a place starting to get empty, and that’s amazing because you are creating space in your life, in your energy, for something new, for someone new. 🙂

And when you think of Adam, he will be a blur. You won’t feel anger and heartbreak, but a lot of gratitude for him. One thing that I believe in is that every person comes into our lives for a reason. They have a role to play into nudging us into who we truly are, and once that role is over, they leave. That was Adam. He came in for a reason to accelerate you, to push you, into truly being YOU.

Art Blog: I AM … Vivek

I AM Vivek low resI AM … Vivek

I created this artwork inspired by a friend’s facebook profile picture.

Vivek is the adventurer within us, who loves to see the world through the lens of his camera. He wants to experience the uniqueness of this earth through the different types of foods across cultures. He loves to travel and roam this earth, but a part of him is looking for that place that is only HIS.

This pic was taken on a lake that flows between Vietnam & China. As he said to me, “That day, I owned the lake!! I owned the whole place.”

A part of us is looking for a place where we experience that immense peace, that belonging. Where we can sit down, breathe, take in every little detail around us, hear the crickets chirping, see the fishes flowing through crystal clear waters … and at that very moment, we let go of everything that is burdening us.  Nothing else matters except for that suspended moment in reality. And at that moment, we truly understand what it feels like to live and breathe the present, where the past doesn’t matter, and the future doesn’t worry us. At that very moment, we meet ourselves all over again, and we fall in love with ourselves all over again. 🙂
