How to Connect to Your Magical Presence
This painting was an entire journey during my first 5 days in Hermosa Beach last week.
Let me invite you on this Painting Journey because I know it had a message for you too, most importantly.
I posted the layers of this painting on Instagram and FB as I went with the universal messages that were coming through to me as I painted. This happens and will happen for you when you begin or revisit your own Personal Painting Practice.
I started this painting with an awareness around my desire to feel more comfortable with the unknown. You know how easy it is to worry about what to do, if “it” will work, if we have what it takes, where to start, how to make it work…what if you let go of all of that, even just for your painting time, and received, surrendered, flowed…?
I AM comfortable in the unknown.
The next day I picked a card from the Rainbow Warrior Awaken deck, New Beginning.
I painted onto the canvas, “I am fully worthy and my new beginning unfolds with success and good fortune. Breathe into my heart and allow the seeds (I’ve planted to grow abundantly).”
Sometimes you don’t feel worthy, right? Who am I to deserve radical success, recognition and opportunity? If you have any financial concerns there is a part of you that doesn’t feel worthy of financial abundance.
I AM worthy to receive whatever my heart’s desire is because I live in an infinitely abundant Universe.
The next day I had a powerful conversation with the amazing friend with whom I am staying. She kept calling me out when I was giving away my power or not realizing how powerful I am.
Do you ever forget that you are the sole creatress of your experience? Do you forget that when you declare, without a shadow of a doubt, to the Universe what you want from a place of love that it HAS to come into your experience?!
I still forget that sometimes (ahem) and I find myself using my powers to imagine what I DON’T want or making excuses ahead of time so I won’t be disappointed when what I say I want (but don’t spend as much time imagining as what I don’t want = worrying) doesn’t happen.
Have you spent your invaluable, infinite, energy really sinking into and creating the picture in your mind of WHAT YOU MOST WANT ON A HEART AND SOUL LEVEL??
This is what the last five days have been about for me. I am so grateful. This affirmation that I painted next on the canvas is my favorite for getting me back into my power.
I AM the magical presence.
This morning I woke up knowing exactly what I wanted to paint. Up until that moment, frankly, I’d been feeling a bit lost, as if I couldn’t imagine ever painting anything “worthy” on this canvas! Sound familiar?
And then, in a moment, I just knew.
My knowing was informed by two influences:
1. Mother Earth . GAIA
2. The word “magnetize.”
I’d been reading about the power of grounding and anchoring our life energy into the very iron, crystalline core of Mother Earth. Then, from that center point, imagining a vertical axis of energy going all the way through me and up to the stars.
“Magnetize” came from my incredible friend here Marie Mbouni who is a divine force of all things magical–and who just started painting this past March in my Super Soul Flow program. (She never thought she could paint! Sound familiar?)
Magnetize speaks to the law of attraction and what Einstein said above. My ah-hah this morning as soon as I woke up was that if I am grounded in the massive iron core of our Mother eARTh and sending out a super clear message about what my heART desires then I can’t help but magnetize it to me…
So I decided to paint Gaia, Mother Earth…and let her embody as well the Magical Presence that is the sun and the moon and the stars.
And as I painted I snapped pics with my new Hipstamatic photo app.
This one above is holographic! It made me think of the principle of “as above so below” and how everything is reflected in everything.
Do you know that your external experience, what is going on in your day to day life is reflective of what is going on with you, in your emotional, spiritual, mental bodies?
We live in an infinite Universe which means you, YOU, are also infinite!
Just let those words wash over you. Don’t try to figure it out. Your logical mind isn’t capable of that level of processing. ?
I AM connected to infinite possibilities.
Look at this black and white version of our magical Gaia…
…do you see how she could be created into infinite variations of color? Infinite possibilities exist even right here!
The different Hipstamatic filters illustrated this infinite possibility…
And here she is “complete” in true light.
What is your TRUTH that you want to give to this Magical Presence right now?
What threshold are you wanting to finally cross?
What life lesson do you want to learn, integrate, and move on from?
What radically delicious experience do you want to invite into your life without doubt or fear?
Follow this journey that I just shared with you and create a visual anchor that your dream can follow right down into your life.
1. Get comfortable with the unknown. Just start (painting, reading, learning, sharing) without attachment to an outcome.
2. Do whatever it takes to KNOW that you are worthy. Maybe it means getting out of your own way.
***this past week in a small group, 12 hour day with my coach Lisa Nichols, a woman asked how Lisa got rid of the nerves before she spoke. Lisa said, “you’re thinking it’s all about you. It’s not about you. You are here to serve others. Whatever you are going to say is for them, not you.” That really struck me and as soon as I realized how sharing my story (we were all waiting our turn to practice our five minute speech) would help others my fear and nerves just fell away. I got out of my own way and put my audience before me. Yes! Yes!***
3. Paint, say, meditate on…the statement that brings you into your power. I AM in my love. That is supposed to do that for you. Mine is I AM the magical presence (because I have always loved the magic).
4. Stay open to the metaphors, or images, that are going to want to come through you in this process. Again there was a split second between feeling totally lost (at the canvas, in life…) and feeling complete clarity.
5. Then, have fun! Receive the flow! Ride the wave! Don’t judge. Don’t criticize. Get curious. Ask how this experience has come here to love you!
Wow! I love this!!!
