I feel at times I’ve an impossible task of keeping up with all the new choices as of late and keeping the flow of what is already in place (my routine) flowing. Now that I write that… there is nothing routine about my life except work and my once a week visit and participation to the all women’s writing group I join in on Tuesday, yes today. (secret yippie!!)
For awhile now I’ve been wanting to share something important with you all and that is information and permission concerning the images I upload on this blog. They are all taken by me and or created by me. I’ve meant to tell you that if you care to copy and use these images in anyway you desire you have my full-on permission. Any image I post in this blog I share and gift to you. Oh wow does that feel good.
I’ve noticed so many younger people find it easy to share images and backgrounds and textures, all for free and I wanted to make it a point to try on that feeling. They see the wave of the future in sharing files and information freely. I like the way I feel when I post my images and know I’ve not a thing to worry about because I let go the fear of my work being ‘stolen’ or borrowed without my permission.
I like to say too over at my art site, I never focus on the fear of copyright infringement nor of having my work highjacked and used to others gain. I am making a living with my art and finding satisfaction in creating and selling my work. My view is feeling and manifesting support from my craft as a way to create sustained prosperity from all that I choose to sell. It is working. Yesterday I got news of the final decision to use one of my paintings (digital) as a book cover.
All the proper channels were taken to obtain my image and I am so pleased. Infact you could say I am pretty darn happy. Dancing on clouds, feeling life dreams becoming ‘reality’.
So it is with great pleasure I share some of what I do here with you. Each image is uploaded with full resolution, a 300dpi and hope with all me heART if you find an image you like you take it and use for your enjoyment
Later today more of the blog will be posted, in the meantime… I am going to take some coffee in and let the day open up to me. I will close my eyes, visualize and feel how I desire the next ‘segment’ of my life to unfold. In my practice this is called pre-paving my world. I actually talk to myself (think) how I want this next part of my day to look and feel. Such powerful work. Yesterday I was at a meeting all day for my job. Beforehand I had closed my eyes, saw and felt how I would find ways to study and pass my test (I had failed once quite some time ago). I also thought how I would be interested in the class and discover new information that would assist me in doing a better job at work.
Each time I preform this practice I am given proof time and again how truly powerful pre-paving is. I felt good being at the meeting and I did find new information I had missed that would assist me in doing a better job in serving and preparing food. I felt good being there. Not one time did I say to anyone or myself that this was a waste of my time or that I was loosing a day by being there. (These were some of my thoughts that last time I showed up and failed). It was intense as I studied even through lunch. I was focusing on the information and felt a connection with the teacher, listening and soaking up all I could. I must say with all honesty that pre-paving was a necessary element in enjoying my day. It is like a super-duper intent mantra that gives a boost of clarity and control back to me; the participant of my own life!
I am finding that each time I take ‘time’ for me first, I catch up. It is as if slowing down to take a conscious assesment of how I want my life to work, I actually cut through the corners of ‘not knowing’ and doubt.
My moment of Snail is like the fable of the ‘tortoise and the hare’; in the long run I seem to get to where I want to be and along the way I see the ‘forest for the trees’ ok…hehehe I’ll stop for now.
