I firmly believe that one of my mission in this current life is to connect. Connect people with their beautiful inner self. Connect myself to my Higher Self. Connect people with each others……..
This quote is, in my opinion, kind of the sum up of one of my bigger value. Thanks to my friend Jennifer who shared it on Facebook right when I was waiting for the message that should be on this painting.
I know some people find it crazy to think that we DO create our world, our life, our universe, with our thoughts. That thought is energy and that energy is creation.
This can be scary, for sure. But don’t be afraid. At first, when I was introduced to positive thinking a few years ago now, I was totally freaked out. It was a time when my thoughts were mostly negative. And I decided to give it a try, and… it was the beginning of a better life.
It is not a miraculous trick of some sorts. And just think: what if for a day or two, you pay attention to what you are thinking and how it is formulated in your head. And for every thought that has a “not” try to shift it the other way around. Or to find something positive regarding the fact in your thought.
Regarding the painting, I started with this vision of a girl with a lotus flower on her forehead. That’t it, to be honest. And as usual, the face just came along.
It is totally out of my comfort zone, I am not a green kind of person, I used to HATE green.
I got attached to this painting, representing so much to me, where I am on my path right now.
The original is for sale, as well as prints, in my Etsy shop. I won’t lie, I am a bit nervous about selling the original because it is a big canvas board and the price is the higher I listed anything to this date. Pricing is SOOOOO damn hard. Fearing that people would think I am asking way too much.
But I also know in my heart that someone will love her as much as I do 🙂
i love this post. i’d always hated the phrase “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes is so” – i’ve endured some incredibly difficult, dark situations that were no fault of my own, and felt that if the quote was true, the one who caused all my pain would be relieved of responsibility. slowly i’ve grown into a place where i am able to focus on the positive, and it has eased my journey into the light. it’s tough, but seeing the beauty in the world does make life more enjoyable.
Hi Ingrid !
I totally am with you and went through hard stuff where I felt guilty of the thoughts it implied then (and still now, sometimes).
I think the important is being aware and learning to get back on our feet and in a better place of mind.
i found you through the magical facebook mix! love your art! sending big peace to your path xo
