8/9 - Consciousness Series 

 

HOW IT CAME TO BE / DESCRIPTION:
 

With this piece I wanted to bring back the feeling of “Folding Time” with a twist and turn towards the ethereal.
 

“Alignment” started with multiple layers and attempts at bringing to life the energy of this canvas. I would apply some paint, push it around and then let it dry only to repaint it the next day. The evolution of this painting took more time than some of the others and it was only until I was able to feel clearly into what it was asking that the image finally began to appear. In this painting there are several layers of curved strokes on the diagonal, black, white, and orange. The brighter areas of orange are symbolic of the fire that drives our desires and how sometimes it can be obvious, or muted and subtle, an undercurrent in the background. The topmost layer of this piece has several thin curved lines in white and black placed on the opposite diagonal as the main painting. It feels like they are out of place and yet on their way to aligning with the rest of the piece.

 

PODCAST:
 

#9: “Alignment”. Take-aways: Have the end goal in mind and build alignment being specific with my end… that way I know what it looks like when it shows up. “Alignment is the arrow that pierces the target”. There is not alignment and misalignment there are simply differing alignments based on our goals and dreams, belief systems and values.
 

#18: “From Survival to Relief”. Take-aways: Moving from survival to relief is about practice. Make it a marathon not a sprint. Take the time to practice the frequency of relief. Become a magnet for opportunity.

INTERPRETATION:
 

“Alignment”. As I was painting this piece, I kept having the feeling of synchronization of pieces in a watch or similar mechanical device, how they click, click, click towards alignment, and then reach the moment where they simply fall into place, where everything works as it should. Matthew speaks not of alignment and misalignment, but of differing alignments. If our heart and energy isn’t aligned with our dreams, then the dreams will take longer to manifest.

 

Where are you in alignment with your dreams? How do you know you are aligned? What does it feel like to be in that space of feeling with your dreams? What steps are you taking every day to bring those dreams to life?
