Walk your path-BE CREATIVE

Do you want to be more creative? Happier? More giving and loving?
Here are some suggestion to follow on the creative path

1. Find your own unique passion, everybody has something that makes their heart beat faster, their soul dance and express that, its your path.

2. Find a moment everyday to be silent, observant, and just be. There is too much doing and not enough being. We need to be in order to shine our core and to get in touch with our intuition.

3. Connect to nature regularly. Nature´s rhythm is more in tune with our own biorhythm and we need to reconnect to refill our own inner Nature and Harmony. Nature is in HARMONY and you need that too.

4. Release the old to let the new in. There is a quote saying you can´t pour anything into a full cup of tea. Are you full? You need to empty it, so you can take in the new. New ideas, new growth, new life, lets pour it in!

5. Surrender what is and let synchronicity guide you on your path. When you stop trying so hard and push endlessly you surrender the situation to the Universe and you start to trust WHAT IS. You start to listen to the inner voice, the voice of your heart that when silent speaks to you. You start to notice the synchronicity, the symbols around you that like silent guidance system shows you the solution and your path.

6. Be Creative! We are all born creative, we have unlimited potentials within us. If we believe that we have the seed of an acorn within us that when put in a proper soil can grow into a mighty Oak Tree, we would nurture it. So believe in your creativity and passion and nurture it and start to make it grow into your life. Become the mighty Oak you are meant to be. When you nurture your creativity your own unique individuality and spark begins to glow.

7. Open your heart. When you connect to your heart and nurture your loved ones in an unconditional loving way you open your heart. When we open our hearts we need to forgive and heal our wounds and that is one of the greatest lesson in life. It is not an easy task but its worth it. Wounded and healed hearts have more depth to them. They can feel deep empathy to one another and give more. So go deeper, and heal deeper. When we can grow from our wounds we embrace all who we are and are able to become authentic beings, loving and lovable.

8. Be Authentic. Be yourself, not be concerned what other people think or do. You have your own unique path and individuality. You are not here to mimic others or be like your neighbor or friend. You are so Unique, nobody like you have been born before or about to be born in thousand years. This is your time! Your expression! Your life! So live it fully as you, an expression your soul, your passion and walk your Path with integrity and authenticity.

So be open, listen, watch, heal, love, nurture, create, be yourself and walk your path.

Love and light

The divine feminine

DSCN7374

The theme of the divine feminine keeps appearing in my paintings these days. I feel how the presence of the Great Mother is ever flowing through the paints when I surrender and let her be my guide. It is a calming experience and a feeling of total trust. She is the Great Creatrix here on this planet, where the elements swirl together, chaos and balance mix into Oneness in an ever flowing dance in the web of life. I feel how the elements in this painting are mixed together creating ocean of energy waiting to be used to create new life, healing, flowers and trees, greens and oranges, gifts from the womb of creation, filling up our senses.

“Let the new in my live grow into beautiful blossoming path. Let the beauty way be my guide and may my heart beat the drum of love emanating loving vibrations around the world, touching all.”

With peace and love

Returning light

DSCN6679

There is magic in the returning light in the Northern Hemisphere after dark winter months. Although it is still snowy and winter here in Iceland the days are longer and we can feel the inner fire slowly awakening.

This painting is from magical place, a glacier in Snæfellsnes Iceland. It is a place where you can truly recharge and be empowered by nature. It is an energy spot and some people believe it is one of the major chakras of Mother Earth.

I send you light from the energy vortex in Iceland with this painting.

Positive Vibrations

The goddess of the sea

 

This image came through last week as I was painting with my son.  I meditated and intuitively chose the colors and started to paint. I often don´t know what the direction the painting is taking me, it is all about to trust. So I trusted and a figure started to come out of the sea and a playful dolphin. I smiled and decided to play with it. Energy swirls and spirals jumped out and I felt how the image made me happy and playful. I am excited for this new year and many dreams are gestating and waiting for the sign of spring to jump forth.

“I graciously accept the good into my life”. This is my mantra for the coming year.

May 2015 be the year of seeing your dreams manifesting into reality.

Blessed be

Entering the gateway

hellnar

Nature is my teacher and inspiration. It can become a gateway to deeper wisdom and teachings if we just allow it to speak to us. I had the privilege to experience this communion with nature when I went to visit beautiful beaches in Snæfellsnes in Iceland. It is a very special place with high energy vibrations. I have often visited these places but this special afternoon in October something special showed itself in the cliff rocks by the beach and how light played with its formations.

I felt the sacredness of this place and the wisdom it holds in its rocks that have stand the test of time for eons, always still and observing, being formed by the elements and the ocean. I saw the old wise ones in the rocks and it felt like they were an ancient record keepers of sacred wisdom. I felt in awe how beautiful and sacred our earth mother is and how we can perceive her light and wisdom if we just observe and take in the beauty and stand still with the land.

I had to paint this sanctuary and it is a soul art medicine to to be able to take that energy into the paintings and stay with it and let the colors guide me forward.

Much love and blessings

Autumn Wisdom

Harvest and release

The magic of Autumn brings forth the inbreath and outbreath of life, the flow of give and receive. We receive the gift of harvest, what we have sown is given to us. At the same time what is ready to be released is given away. The old has given its gifts of beauty and the cycle continues, the leaves fall away. It has served its purpose. Everything must go through its cycle of transformation, it is the natural law and that gives balance to earth mother and her children. In the  medicine wheel we look to the west, towards the setting sun, the death of the old and towards the transformation and our emotions. It gives rise to our intuition and our dreamtime. Autumn is good time to look at our outdated beliefs that have hindered our growth and release them as well as everything that is not serving our highest good. It is a good time to find our balance in body, mind and spirit and while releasing also receive the gifts and acknowledge what is working well in our lives. It is a time of de-tox, cleansing, self-knowledge and appreciation.

We are ready to shed the old to embrace our newfound strength.

The fiery Volcano within and without

DSCN4184-001

In the highlands near our biggest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull, a volcano erupts in Holuhraun, since September 2. 2014. Our wild and beautiful Mother land lets her fire out and makes a way for the new, a new earth and the new lava makes a new landscape. It is beautiful to look from a safe place but dangerous to be near. The fire energy is both destructive yet building new land and lava on this sand plateau is perfect.

I love this fiery energy in my country, it awakens me and startles me because its energy and weather is always changing. My motherland´s creative powers are amazing and it influences me. Creativity is vibrant and alive, it is ever-changing and needs an outburst. How can we learn from our Mother? It is true when energy builds up it needs to find a way out. When emotional tensions is blogged we feel volatile and uncomfortable, therefore it is never good to block energy flow whether it is an emotion or magma that needs to burst out. Everything needs to flow, the river, the magma, our emotions, our bloodstream, as within so without. Energy needs to flow, nothing is good static, static is stale and stuck. So lets flow with our emotions, find an outlet, dance, move, paint, talk! Lets express ourselves and trust that everything is good! It is good when it is in flow and we know the situation always changes when balance is reached. Mother Earth seeks balance through these eruptions and we need too. The painting I did reminds me of the fiery volcano goddess the needs to release her tensions and creativity. She is volatile yet building new land and her creativity and powers are so vibrant and alive. She is truly creativity in action.

Creativity as a Spiritual Practice

 

The creative Sun

By Solveig

We are all born creative. I am not more creative than you are. I have it activated! We have to activate our creativity.

Being creator is honoring that we have a part of creation within us, we are a part of the Creator. I see in the divine in me and I see the divine in you. I am divine! I am a fragment of God! I am a Creator. So we are Co-Creators with the Divine.

We have to listen and acknowledge that we are powerful and sometimes we are afraid of our own power.

Realizing this power within, we become creators  and we start to create our lives. We are not a puppet on a string. We have had many centuries of powerlessness, we have been powerless and felt power over but now we have to take our stance and become responsible for our lives and our creative abilities. We have to move into our power!

We are powerful! We are creators!

Namaste!
