WOMB WISDOM ~ WHAT IS ASKING TO BORN?
Women hold the seeds of new life. In the dark fertile womb, all that is needed for life to come forth is already GIVEN- the nourishment, waters, blood, nutrients and life cycle takes place without any ‘doing’ on our part. It is a miracle that takes place within us.
Throughout our lives, we will serve as “Midwives” to many others, but perhaps the most poignant will be the birth of our own soul.
You were led to the “Art of Allowing” for a reason. There is something new asking to be born in you ~ something beyond paint ~ something you are to bring forth in your Being.
It is already within you as a seed that is waiting to be nourished in order to blossom.
SIT IN A QUIET PLACE & LISTEN TO THIS AUDIO GUIDED VISUALIZATION. ALLOW 15 MINUTES AND HAVE YOUR JOURNAL NEARBY. As you listen, simply witness what thoughts, feelings, images, colors and sensations arise. Don’t try to censor or make sense of it. Trust that these creative bubbles are percolating into your consciousness as seeds for the beginning of your painting process. After listening, simply write what you experienced and allow your intuitive wisdom to guide you….what is asking to be born?

This week you will paint through your Intuition, allowing your connection to the seed within to guide you. Develop your wash slowly and only when you are moved from deep within, move into form with Her and feel Her in the mystery of the canvas.
Remember to bless your canvas before you begin.
You may have seen the short version of my painting “Midwife of Beauty”, but here is a longer version, cut into 4 segments for easier viewing.
You have already viewed the wash sequence in Week 1- there you saw how I spent a tremendous amount of time playing with unlimited possibilities (at least an hour)….moving slowly, lovingly with the movement, allowing the organic unfolding of color, pattern, experimentation and play to occur. By playing for a long time in this phase, the soul gets a chance to insert shapes and images from the unconscious.
It is important to take the time for this to occur so that Creativity doesn’t come from your mind, but instead rises from beyond mind.
You are invited to forget the rules and allow yourself to move freely into form and color to the beat of your own soul.
Stay in constant inquiry, moment to moment, “What is asking to be born?”
Allow pure raw energy and emotion to flow. She will meet you intimately in the dark spaces of the Unknown.
Be patient, and move into form when you feel Guided.
Stay curious and sink into your deep birthing waters…..
