Art and Alchemy Everyday

Day 2 #artandalchemyeveryday The firewood was too wet to get the barn studio warmed up, so I decided to work inside on some smaller pieces I started earlier this month. I had a lot of interruptions and a bit of clutter… but I did do some painting : )

I’ve been thinking a lot about the power of taking action lately.  About a year ago I got to a point where I realized if I wanted something different to happen I needed to start doing something differently.

I decided to challenge myself to take a tangible action in alignment of my inner guidance everyday.  I had spent years learning to listen and trust my intuition, but I noticed that when I felt stuck it was because I wasn’t doing the thing it was guiding me toward.

So….I did something my Spirit had been guiding me towards for years.  I started painting or doing something creative everyday.  Making art has always been a big inner calling for me, and it was a part of my life, but it had been asking for more room for a long time.

I had no idea what a positive impact this choice would have when I began.  Besides the tangible works of art {which make me so happy}, it has supported physical healing, opened doors to new friendships and communities, grounded ideas that I have had floating around in my head for years, created financial flow, built confidence, and taught me new skills… and this is just short list.

The act of creating and finding beauty in my everyday has transformed my life over the past year, and it’s continuing to shift.

I’m inviting you to give this a try, and share how you’re DOING your creativity and EXPERIENCING beauty in your daily life.  It’s Art and Alchemy Everyday.  Please share on Instagram #artandalchemyeveryday because I’d love to see what you’re doing.  Art IS alchemy, and I know that if creating has been calling to you, it’s a message from your Spirit and the key to opening the flow you desire in your life.

Finding ways to bring creative action into our days actually stimulates our creativity.  It can be as simple as taking 10 minutes to write, snapping a photo of the beautiful clutter on your desk, or sharing something you made with your hands.  It could be the breakfast plate with the vivid orange slices next to the cobalt blue napkin that was your grandmother’s or the beautiful snow falling outside your window.  Snap a photo, let us see how beauty is showing up for you.

The photos here are my own examples of #artandalchemyeveryday and I’ll be sharing what creativity looks like for me during the coming weeks on instagram and on my blog.

Let the transformation begin!! xoxo

Day 1 #artandalchemyeveryday I shared this photo on instagram the other day. It was my creative moment on a day that I had to do a lot of work at the computer. I actually created a newsletter and blog post that day, but I took a moment to snap this photo of my workspace.
