Energetic Blob Division: Head and Heart Chakra split

Happy New Year! Feliz Año Nuevo!

Energetic Blob Split? Oh yeah it’s a thing. A couple months ago I saw an incredible healer. I worked with her once before and had an incredible experience. I reached out to her to see if she could refer me to a hypnotherapist for a couple things. She didn’t have a referral however suggested a session with her. I am very attune to energies myself and a healer in other ways though nothing to the gifts she has. There was a lot to this session. It was the one of the most powerful healings I have ever experienced. I felt like an entirely different person afterward and had to gather my senses to drive myself home safely. I still feel like a different person. No tonics or anything like that. I have seen a number of female and male healers throughout my adult life and though each of them have helped me on my journey in getting closer to what was intuitively coming up for me that I couldn’t get through on my own, nothing has come close to this. Apparently she hadn’t seen anything like it before. My head chakra and my heart chakra were one big blob. And my heart chakra was covered and was not well. Without going into explicit detail, it explained everything. If you can’t listen to your heart because your head is in the way it causes problems that lead a person down a rabbit hole. If you can’t balance your heart and mind or treat the mind as it is meant to serve us rather than we serve the mind, we miss our target. We lose out on the present moment by being frozen and unable to discern.

It’s something I wanted to share as we’re surrounded by a world in need of this balance. Painting from my heart, the creative spirit that literally takes over, is where it is at for me. And having the heart and mind energies separated has allowed the most clarity to step forward. In every direction.

Salud to the best year yet!

Painting Lapse.

   I came across this photo a friend of mine took when I was in college. I thought “what happened to her?” lol! And comparatively I didn’t express all that I wanted to even then artistically. I worked and went to school like so many other people. Whether you’re an artist in any form or not we all have our gifts, purposes here, and the journeys where every road has led to the same path. We are always exactly where we are supposed to be even though we don’t know it. I’m grateful I have lived in a part of the world where I have had the opportunity to explore. I chose to study art in college, I switched my major multiple times lol. And at the end of the day, a boss gave me the advice of, “if you do what you love the money will come.” So I did.

I know this is not unfamiliar to other artists. How we compare our artistic creations and capabilities to other artists, should we even continue to put it out there or keep our creations for the pure sake of creating? There are lapses in all of our lives when “creating” is creating your life. Moving, buying a home, maybe get married and having children, jobs in various disciplines, etc. There are times when I stopped painting but I haven’t stopped creating, sketching, etc. I’ve been inspired in travel, experiences in different types of art, business, learning, inspiration, and growth has come together in making Denver my home base. I’ve been led back to painting as a focus. A paint brush, paint marker, tools of all sorts feel very natural in my hands. Now I have more skills to balance it all.

Thank you Brian Corrigan for suggesting me and thank you Shawn with CBS4 for your time interviewing me in my studio. I had a lot to say in response to his questions lol! I hope to have the opportunity to work with a collective of artists that have the same passion and determination as I do. Thank you to anyone and everyone who has supported me in so many ways along my path.
