November 13, Morning Mood Mandala and tarot reading.
I have to admit that I am not feeling it today. Nothing wanted to come from the paint brush.
The colors and their mixing reminded me of ketchup and mustard.
Still stumbling through paint mixing….just not getting the hang of it yet.
I am going to try to paint my own color wheel later. It was suggested that maybe I should consider different/better paints. What are your favorites?
I decide to use my Osho Zen tarot deck this morning. It is one of my first decks and then I didn’t feel much of a connection to it.
This morning’s reading may bring this deck out more often. That’s the thing about growth, it brings things that may not have been suited for you before back to you.
The take away from today’s reading:
Take a breath, take it easy.
This moment is a gift for the hard work you have done.
Love based in freedom, not expectation or need
Stop fighting, forgive yourself, love IS available, you ARE worth it.
I’m learning to watercolor.
I am trying hard to learn how to mix these darn things! ha!
Not so easy, i’ve tried a few times this morning.
I would like to watch some one else handle their color and palette and mixing and such.
If you know of some good videos of this please let me know.
Today’s reading is from Creatrix, Anything is Possible Activation Cards by Melissa Harris. (Not an affiliate, just thought i’d out the link here for you)
When the wave comes, dive deep. one of my favorite analogies.
Have you ever stood in the Big Lake (or Ocean) and tried to stop the waves?…..Impossible.
Have you ever been hit by a wave when you didn’t expect it?…..That wave moves you, knocks you around.
These waves are like the emotions we feel, triggers we need to face.
I have learned that it is when I dive into the wave, when I go through it that I end up on the other side of that wave/trigger.
It is when I dive deep into my emotion/trigger/issue, when I work with the energies that I am able to come out on the other side of it, landing on my feet.
All within my power, all within my control.
I have to do some inner work.
I have to stand in my power.
I have to release to expand.
When the wave comes, dive deep.
Today’s Mood Mandala…..thinking i am missing the greenery now that the snow is here.
I am also loosely following Everyday Watercolor by Jenna Rainey.
The painting today is also a practice/play with color tone and saturation control.
Learn a lot about water control in this morning mandala.
My tarot reading today i feel had to do with green also., to leave my head space and go with my heart, green is also the heart chakra color, my favorite color.
I think that when you are in your heart space you are also going with the flow more, which was also an important aspect to today’s reading.
The messages from the reading today are:
Claim it! Speak it! Be it!
Release and Expand. Rise!
Mistakes are OK.
Go with the Flow!
Technical difficulties make things harder. Today my microphone wasn’t working so i had to improvise on the tarot video. Fun stuff.
Today’s mood mandala finds me distracted, pulled apart. there are a lot of things going on in life, my energies are flowing outward. this leaves me feeling a bit drained and uninspired.
My tarot reading today gives good advise.
Pause, Rest, Reflect.
Change grows in Dark Places.
Joy can be found in the joining AND in the Dividing.
Day 8 with Morning Mood Mandalas. Lead by Susan Loughrin
I wasn’t quite sure what to paint. Pushed some paint around, no color mixing.
I like the art in the morning but making it a new morning habit hard.
so glad that i get everything set up the evening before otherwise i might not be so on the ball.
everything was running slowly today, from exporting video to uploading them.
Couple of important messages gleaned from today’s reading.
Be willing to receive.
action + intention = manifestation.
intention is everything.
Just went with the audio that recorded as i made the video. i have done voice overs in the other videos.
Enjoy the Journey!
That is my message today, Be Bold.
Everything turned out a bit wonky today. I’m ok with it as i learn, play and experiment with all this creavtity. so many amazing ways to express yourself. I am enjoying the process, even when, well you know, it’s not quite ‘perfect’. lol!
Be Bold! Be Audacious! Be Passionate!
Most of all, Enjoy the Journey!
