20x20 Resin coated
Been attempting to work with my power instead of trying to save myself from it. Seeing the spirit, as the spirit. Lately, I have been so down on myself for feeling like I am ugly and not good enough. I can become obsessed with my weight or how I don’t look ok in the mirror. A candid, bad photo of me can send me into a spiral. I mean god forbid I look human. What I’ve started doing with all of that negative self-talk and perception is taking a moment to pause and take a breath. I remind myself that these are just parts of my mind that haven’t healed yet, coming up once again to bring me this information. “This is just separation from who I think I am and who I really am.” I picture the separation as a dark crack in a stream of light. As I pause and visualize the stream of broken light that represents my unhealed mind, I fill in those cracked spots with a deep violet stream of light. In my vision, it heals the filter of separation that I can look at myself through effortlessly. That is why I named this painting Illumination Violet. The thing I feel like nobody ever told me about true healing is that it has to get pretty ugly as you look at the information first. And that’s ok.
