Gluebook, July 2015, first 10 days.

Each of these "gluebook" pages is created in less than 5 minutes without any thought about outcome.  After the images are glued down and it feels finished I look for a message.  These are my findings.

 Don't go another day, week, month or year without finding and harnessing your passion.  Whatever it is, hold on to that while letting go of things, people and behaviors that do not behoove you.

 To be brain healthy, keep learning and firing those synopses which I see as the precious jewels of our brains. Out of the primordial soup of our thoughts come the tadpoles of ideas that will grow into our brilliance.

 Sacred. This page is for my Mother born 103 years ago on this day, July 3. She was an avid knitter and created so many wonderful sweaters, dresses, suits, coats and a multitude of gifts and household items.  She was 83 when she passed and had been creating fabric arts since the age of 8.

 Step onto the Path and become awakened! Allow nature to teach you what you need/want to know.

 I recently called home all my shadows or "Demons", whom are now known as "Moonbeams".  After that action, I thought to myself; "What have I done?", and fear set in.  However, since the Strawberry Moon my Moonbeams arrived, I have found them to be a true gift that I didn't know I wanted.

 Harmony! I am feeling peace and harmony within myself.  I feel like I am truly enjoying this life I am living.

 Mysterious. I am good with whatever comes.  I don't need to know every thing. I am not in control. I can only respond to my life. 

 Indulgent Care. It is up to me to take really good care of myself. To find relaxation and nurture whenever I can, to the best of my ability.

 Learning to Let Go Gracefully! This is bursting bubbles that are only illusions and finding true heart and meaning for me.  Letting go of whatever is not in alignment with my soul.

 Awakened. Coming out of the dessert of the Ego.  Turning Inward, caring for the physical body and waking the soul.

I hope that you are enjoying these posts. I want to thank the artists that have provided all the images that I use from magazines, books and the internet.

Thank you! Without you I would have a blank canvas and would not know my personal joy.

Post a comment!  Let me know how you feel about these pages and ask any questions you may have.

Last Week of June 2015

All in all I feel this has been a very good art and emotional month for me. I did miss two days (the 13th and 30th) of gluebook pages but feel just fine with that. I also traveled to Salem, Oregon for six days at the end of the month but was able to keep to my practice.  So here are the final pages for June 2015.  I've added a bit more description for those curious souls who asked.

June 24, 2015
This is the threshold to the awakening I am venturing.  It is ancient and earthy and I need to trust the deepest parts of me to continue my quest.  This is the clay and mortar of our souls that goes deep, holding us altogether.

What Resonates?
June 25, 2015

Who looks outside, Dreams Who looks inside, Awakens.  In  looking for my true nature, I'm cracking open and shattering the old seeds and reflections I've been holding on to. Looking to find the music in me. I'm ready to finally live my intended life.

Underground Shadow Temples
June 26, 2015

These are my Shadow Temples.  They are layered and go deeper and deeper into my Underworld.  My shadows, also known as Anima, live here. They are sacred places.  We visit only occasionally, if ever, in an effort to find hidden meaning in our lives. They are places of boundless beauty and veneration.

The birds signify dreams and ideas I thought were long gone, categorized and filed away.  I have undeniable compassion for these things as I find my way awake.  It’s with the awe of innocence that I can bring these dreams and ideas to full bloom.

Sunken Treasure 
 June 28, 2015
I say; “Alleluia!!!!”  I have detected treasure within myself and there is true value here!  Most of what I’m finding is ancient and useful. Thank you! Ancestors.  I am still sorting and finding more and could be for a long while.  I realize my adventure has only begun.

 Seek Tranquility
June 29, 2015

I know that no matter how far I may travel or how deep I may dig and no matter what I find, I need to seek tranquility along the way. This is finding beauty in my life to rest in as often as possible.

Thank you for visiting and feel free to comment.
