Inspiring Visuals and Sounds | Yep. I got a Jones :)

Beautiful Wednesday ❤

I thought I’d share some visual candy. I have a Jones for vivid, unique, and clever themes, and concepts– particularly extreme conveyances, and full deep expressions. (mixed media artist appetites) lol I like to be able to turn the sound off and allow my imagination to figure out the story or message being portrayed without words. Then I like to watch again with sound. You should try it sometime I think you’d be surprised at your own interpretations.

Whimsical, ethereal, dark fantasy, or cartoon-like; I love it all. The ability to convey several message via sound and visuals is something I’ve been drawn to since I was a child. I watched Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker a zillion times. I hope you enjoy these visuals and sounds by extremely talented artists, and their creative teams.They give me so much inspiration!

In no way is this my entire immediate family, but I LOVE them.

I hope none of them sees this because they will be upset that they couldn’t fit..Hey I have lots of pics not online but I chose the ones I had immediately available. lol I hope everyone has a happy holiday! thought I’d share a snapshot of one of my many sources of joy and LoVe. These folks (and the ones not photographed, which are many) have been holding be up and I really appreciate their truth, honesty and love. I wouldn’t trade them in even if I could. I haven’t blogged in a while so what a loving way to show my heart. I hope you and all your families experience an abundance of unity and happiness.

Abstract Fall ❤

image

Some abstract pieces I’ve been picking up and putting back down for about a week. I find when I do this the concept is of little concern, which is great for abstract art. I utilized some Golden Acrylics and pastels for both of them. Can you believe I used a real lemon and a real apple to create some of the circle patterns? 💞😁
It’s been a while and I miss blogging. Between art classes and day to day life it’s been a struggle to sit down and blog. Fall is my second favorite season, of course my first is winter, so I’m very happy about that! A few changes are happening spiritually this solstice for me. I’ve actually been practicing creating my own journals, which is inclusive in my vision and contribution to humanity in the near future. Sometimes I wonder what sleep looks like. But then I’m humbled that I have breath, and life, and the energy to do with my energies being pulled in various directions. #balance 💋

My HeART Journal | 7.8.14

heartjournal7.8.14

 

Sharing adornments I created over the weekend with you! I love plugs, and I don’t want to stretch my lobes so I decided to create my version for pierced ears. Well those are the hand painted ones with the neon heart and a button in the middle ❤ I like to mix and match stuff I also made a Patchwork inspired Heart Brooch. Mixed media jewelry was my inspiration behind all these! I LoVe Buttons, and flowers too! I keep fresh flowers around regularly. Colors reflect and create moods. I even put one in my Grandma’s hair! 🙂

FEEL. |Connecting with My Inner Ambience

FEEL.

I thought I’d design with much passion, color, and PoP since the winter always gifts me with feelings of power and inspiration unlike any other time of the year, and I wish that these were the only things the winter brings for me since I am a winter soul, but this time of the year also brings out some deep unpleasantness, some unease, some sadness, due to shedding old spiritual skin. It makes perfect sense, given that the wisdom from our ancestors teach that winter is time of inner reflection, connecting with our truest state of being,  and letting go of what no longer serves us.

In my view  we don’t live in the most emotionally healthy, or supportive society here in the western world, and so because of this revelation first from The Most High, and confirmation from resources that I am blessed to have come across I’ve found this newfound journey to getting in touch with my true feeling very exhausting, and I now see how much I have detached myself from them in winters past because subconsciously I just didn’t feel like doing the work of recognizing, truly feeling, and accepting them. Closing doors, and changing light bulbs spiritually is WORK. It is easier to act like a robot, and just walk around pretending to be unaffected by things (both pleasant and unpleasant).  I now know it’s ok to feel what I feel, to be intuitive, and to accept my imperfect, complex self COMPLETELY. It is ok to detach from what doesn’t serve me, and thus doesn’t assist me in serving. Saying no to some things, which frees me to say yes to what’s best. This means shifting, shifting, and more shifting. Life won’t be easy, and it won’t be familiar. I’ve never done this before so I am going to make mistakes, and I’m going to lose, and I’m going to gain.  I want to remain true to who I am and move forward creating a better world for my spirit to be free as God intended.  After all nothing is hidden, we just think we can hide. Society has taught us to try and hide, because it’s “easier” for us to assimilate that way and not “bother” one another, and keep to “business” at hand. The only business I have is being in tune with myself and my Creator.

I know I’ve done myself a great disservice by not trusting my own inner nudges when things didn’t feel right for me, and  I have often waited for some additional reason to be happy than just being happy and doing what brings me pure bliss & joy.  In the name of “waiting on God to show me” I’ve waited in vain. I no longer hold myself hostage in a shame and fear based belief system thinking I’m doing God a favor, by giving into my own fears and insecurities. I still deal with abandonment issues, and I know this is the root of this tree. It has taken 31 years to grow so I have lots of work to do but I am committed to myself. Even if I am wrong, I can ask for forgiveness. God is the same today, yesterday and forever. He never intended for me to ignore and neglect myself. If nothing else I’m clear that it is for my mental, physical and spiritual health to FEEL. This is what my God-given senses were created to do. I have a right to own what I feel. No more self guilt trips for feeling, whether that’s bliss or the depression. God lights my path, and when I fall He is always there to pick me back up not to sit me in a far-off place and judge me but to hold me, dust me off, reveal to me another lesson to share, and reassure me of the depths of divine love. I am connecting with my inner ambience because I am FREE to be ME. 💝

This Little Light of Mine|Cadence.

cadence123

Experiencing this gift from God brings me to tears. My nephew is one-years old and he is so amazing. He’s very independent, and he loves crackers. lol He likes doing things with his hands, he loves playing the drums, and he loves outdoors. It seems as though when my sister gave birth something supernatural happened inside me. I felt overwhelmingly charged with the highest sense of duty, love, and  a the strongest urge to fulfill my purpose than ever before. Cadence’s birth gave me a chance to experience something I never have before. I got to feel the highest, and most positive energy possible on this earthly plane, and that is new life. Though I wasn’t present at his birth, somehow I still felt all the divinity and vibrancy that comes with the birth of  a soul. Words cannot explain, and I’m tearing up as I type this. Life is sacred.

Sharing a piece of my heart and soul…. He is my only nephew. I love him with everything that I am.

Auntie loves you Chunky!!!

⚘ ♡Pastels & God’s Goodness♡ ⚘

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a fun-filled and peaceful weekend! Mines was amazing! I got to spend time with my family! They keep me laughing and smiling. I love my family so much! Sorry if I’m doing a lot, but my family is just like everyone else’s. We aren’t perfect, and we don’t always agree, but we do love and that’s enough for me! 🙂

This polyvore set was inspired by my love for pastels of course. 🙂blessings I was reflecting upon blessings, and it came to me how I’ve never had just one blessing and it only blessed one area of my life. For instance, my husband, he has blessed so many areas of my life outside of my need for companionship, so when God had Him in the works for me He was thinking further ahead and around than I was. God is always mindful of us way more than we are mindful of ourselves and for this I am grateful. His thoughts are truly NOT our thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8) It’s so hard to count my blessings because I have so many and even the ones I can name there are blessings inside those blessings. Well, before I go on and on I would like to share with you some of my favorite meditations on GOD’s goodness.  I hope you can see that no matter what we face in this world that God is still good and His plans are perfect! I want to encourage you to dwell on your blessings. Start your day with expectation and hope! You never know what you might get!

Nahum 1:7

Adonai is good, a stronghold in time of trouble; he takes care of those who take refuge in him.

Psalm 34:8

O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.

Psalm 86:5

Adonai, you are kind and forgiving, full of grace toward all who call on you.

Psalm 145:15-19

15 The eyes of all are looking to you; you give them their food at the right time. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. 17 Adonai is righteous in all his ways, full of grace in all he does. 18 Adonai is close to all who call on him, to all who sincerely call on him. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

Psalm 145:9

Adonai is good to all; his compassion rests on all his creatures.

Exodus 34:6

Adonai passed before him and proclaimed: [Adonai] is God, merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace and truth;

Acts 14:17

17 Yet He did not neglect to leave some witness of Himself, for He did you good and [showed you] kindness and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with nourishment and happiness.

Promises.☀

Beautiful Rising!

I thought I’d post some promises of GOD for my readers. I’m always bombarded with warnings, and “bad news” as I research how the world is changing and seeing the signs of the times. Warnings are great, and the truth is some things have to happen as prophecy unfolds. I think it’s always good and necessary to balance that out with the “Good News”. The beauty is we still have time a period of grace to align our hearts and minds for trials and even escape them, as the Word promises. These passages help me remain hopeful instead of worrying myself to oblivion. The bible does say that in these times many people’s hearts will fail them because of fear of what is to come. I don’t want my heart to fail me! I don’t want your heart to be troubled or fail you either so I thought I’d share hope, and encourage dwelling on things that are praise-worthy. The most praise-worthy fact is that we already have the victory through Yeshuah! After all why worry, when we can just prepare, and uplift one another! I hope this refreshes your spirit and soul and encourages you to keep your mind on things above and not mundane, petty things. We war against spirit not flesh and blood. I have to be reminded of this daily!

I plan to share more, and feel free to print this for your own use and even share it with your friends and family. What are some biblical precepts you meditate on to keep up hope and faith in these times of many testings and trials? Please share! Iron sharpens Iron!

Meditation. Unity. Light-bearers. ❤

ISAIAH

We have plenty. An idea is something to give, a hug, a helping hand, an ear to just stop and listen, even an inspiring and timely word.

If I have one loaf of bread and I share with you, we can put our brains together and figure out how to get another one. We are both blessed. From this we can teach others a valuable lesson in sharing.

Yahweh is not slack. Promises are truly promises.

Decree love. Out of pure meditations springs forth pure words. Let’s meditate on things we know to be true and lovely. Rendering assumptions life-less.

Let’s try to make an effort to seek opportunities to help without fearing that we will lack as a result.

I thought I’d share one of my meditations for this week with you. What are your favorite meditation passages and what ways do you  carry them out on your everyday journey? Iron sharpens! Comment below!
