Have you ever thought about energy in your body and how sometimes that energy feels good and other times not so much? I've been curious about this with my creative practice.
Here's a spiral of Emotions with the uplifting ones creating more energy at the top and the debilitating ones at the bottom.
Empowerment, Knowledge, Freedom
Appreciation Love Joy
Belief Positive Expectation
Revenge Hatred, Rage
Jealousy Insecurity, Guild, Unworthiness
Creativity is not based on our emotions--though our emotions can affect how we feel and if we want to create. We have power over our emotions and can change our emotions.
There are some situations that people can not change their emotions such as people suffering from depression or mental illness. In those cases more support from professionals is the recommendation.
I created some cards to remind me of all the juicy good in my life. And to remind me when I need to raise my energy.
This card is about the body and my word is dance.
"Listen to your body, to the liquid gold running through your veins.
You are powerful.
You are beautiful.
Know your body loves to move
and to dance.
You are strong."
This card is about mind and my word is write.
Write your story. Write about the highest heights.
Write about the tiny shreds
Write about the cloudy times
Write in the clear sun shining times
Write about mountain top times
Write about clear lake stillness
Write all of You.
This card is about emotions. My word is play.
Go on the Joy Street
of your life
be on it and find it every where!
Play with silly shoes.
Play with cloth blowing on the breeze
of the ocean shore!
Play with dancing
with a hat on your head.
Ride the bicycle of fun
to the fullest exultation!
This card is Spirit. And candle light
"Connect with me:
Always and in all ways.
Smile on your face
Smile on another
Remember liquid gold light shines
in your every cell of your body.
Materials: 140 lb watercolor paper cut to the size of 5.5" x 7"

After I created the card, I looked at it and asked, "What would my Wise Woman tell me?" Then I wrote down the words in a notebook. I underlined the words that resonated the most clear for me and wrote them on the back of the card.
The beginning of more creating.
Join me in the fun, if you like.
