In case you are not aware of this, the angels seem to be behind everything in life. We get a thought out of the blue, or a nudge to react quickly to something. Where does that come from? Chances are it’s coming from our beloved guardians in spirit, who live and have their being on a different level of vibration than we do. We normally cannot see them with our normal range of vision, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t pulling the strings on our reality from behind the curtain.
In an ongoing search for finding that elusive “Do what you love and the money will follow,” I recently came across someone’s Internet survey that asked a similar question: “What did you do as a kid that totally absorbed and enthralled you; that held your attention for hours of pure enjoyment that you didn’t realize the time passing?” Answer this and you can be pretty sure that’s what you’re on Earth to do with your life. My answer to this question was CREATING. As a kid that meant creating art – drawing, coloring, painting. Anything that involved art in any way, shape, or form, I was in. (Also swimming, but that’s another story.) Give me a box of crayons, a stack of paper, or a new coloring book and I was flying high for hours. Later on, it morphed into designing clothes for my dolls – paper and cloth, and sewing, stitching, embroidering. The list goes on and on.
Creating still spells FUN to me. Any creative activity, whether it’s designing someone’s home or work space to function better, to giving an inspirational talk that moves and inspires people; to sewing new clothes from thrift store finds; to stitching a sampler, or gathering fabrics for a quilt – it is all time well-spent, feeding my spirit and using creative energy wisely … having FUN. Fun IS inspiration! Fun IS creating! Fun IS making something out of nothing! Fun IS the action of rising out of the ashes of something that has burned off – no longer needed in this lifetime – a sure sign it’s time to move on … move on like a bird from branch to branch to branch.
The angels guide us throughout life. Life IS the process. Life IS creation in action. Art IS the result of the creative force that moves through us in myriad ways…expressing uniquely and differently in each of us.
Don’t think you’re creative? Think again! It’s the very energy that you breathe in every second of every day. It is the lifeline to the infinite – to the connection you have to the Universe and everything in it that you see, feel, touch ….. and IMAGINE! Imagination is REAL where the angels are.
How many times have we heard ‘Dream it and it happens. Build it and they will come?’ These are metaphors and guideposts along the way. What is the desire pulling you in your heart? Discover it and uncover it. Listen to your inner longing for that which you loved doing as a child and your life path will explode with FUN and excitement before your very eyes.
I hope that you will be inspired by the ideas presented throughout this issue. May they ignite your passion to create something wonderful – now!
