Obstacles

crowcollagesm
All right faithful readers, I am still not finished my hibiscus. This one has become a huge stumbling block to overcome, although I feel I am almost there.

The hinderance exists in the state of my psyche. I am going through some major life changes.

No doubt change is difficult for me. What do I need to give up, in order to allow new things in my life? ‘Darkest before the light’ is what comes to mind. Once I overcome these obstacles, I feel my creative will explode.

The black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light. ~Joseph Campbell

Here is a little digital manipulation for your viewing pleasure, to hold you over. I am having fun playing around with this digital stuff. At the top of my wish list is a Wacom Tablet. Drawing with a mouse isn’t all it is cracked up to be. Off to paint …

Manifesting

When nothing sells, it can be frustrating. I am thinking, that maybe, I am unable to let go of my labour of love? I am one of those artists, that may very well have many finished pieces in my house, and yet I cannot figure out why no one is interested,yet they have never been seen by anyone but me. Focused on creating, the very simplest of thoughts, sometimes, do not occur to me.It is easy to create roadblocks, yet if you ask me, I will tell you that I want to sell my art, in fact to be a full time artist, would be a dream come true. Although letting go is difficult, it is healthy. Letting go of art is healthy. It is what keeps the cycle of creation going.

I can’t help but think, our deep underlying beliefs,
become our will, our desire, and perhaps self fulfilling prophecies. Despite knowing this,negative thoughts can still enter into the picture. Banish them immediately. They can do no good. In order to manifest something, begin by creating intent.
Come up with a plan, which is what I did.

I told myself, I am going to hang a painting where I work, as I only have the room to hang one. I intend to sell it, and when that one sells, I will replace it with another, with the intent of selling it as well. That is exactly what I had done, and yesterday I sold the painting, as well as a miniature piece I had on my desk for sale. I was overjoyed.

The subconscious is a powerful thing, it’s hidden power largely unknown. Intent is more than just merely setting goals. Make up your mind to do something, and then by manifesting that, your purpose is put into action. The power to design our very own lives, to find success by manifesting what we desire, is a very real thing. Try it. The sky’s the limit. Onward and upward!
