I love reading

I have been playing with my computer so much my arm is so sore!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon resting after a beautiful lunch at Stella with loved ones and spending the morning reading a brilliant book about the left hand. The book goes through loads of exercises to get the left hand working, I have nearly filled up a visual diary with all the things I have learnt from this book. I love reading!

I read a book about Judas a few months ago and I finally made a slide show of my belief of what happened.......




Here is some of the stuff I have been learning from reading:

The Power of Your Other Hand by Lucia Capacchione M.A.

Did you know: 80 - 95% of the population did not get adequate parenting?

This makes finding our inner child a task for most of us.

By most time people reach adulthood, our natural healthy child-like traits are so wound up they are nearly dead, or distorted so much they are beyond recognition.

The inner child is feelings, instincts, intuitions, spontaneity, and vitality. It is emotional and expressed until condemned. It is playful until crushed, it is magical until ridiculed. You can bury it, distort it, make it sick, but you can't get rid of it.

We lose so much of the magic and mystery of living, the delight and intimacy of relationships. So much of the destructiveness that we bring to each other as human beings is a function of our lack of connection to our sensitivities, our fears, our lack of magic.

Our inner child may be our most precious sub personality the closest to our essence, the one that enables us to truly become intimate to fully experience others and to LOVE!

Alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual obsession, eating disorders, compulsive spending and gambling are some of the misguided attempts to return to childhood. The behaviour that results in inappropriate childishness rather than the true child-likeness.

Denial has been the key issue in the families of alcoholics, addicts etc. As long as the denial continues there is no way to work through abuse so it gets passed down to the next generation.

To find out more I recommend reading Lucia's book! It is written in a way that is easy to read and fascinating. She talks about using the dominate hand and the non dominate hand to help you work towars bringing your inner child back to life. It truly is a beautiful thing!!!

My message for the day was: This is our affirmation for you: "My heart and mind are now filled with joy. I am a mighty reflection of God's happiness."

Life ROCKS!

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

Releasing my MADNESS! 

Getting more into it without distractions

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
