Shades Of Color…

True reality has been banging at my door recently, lots of hard issues to face and deal with, things to let go of…My latest challenge is to let go of my old story and completely create a new one. I haven’t got a clue where to even begin, but I feel the search calling out to me. Terrifying and exhilarating all in one big mass of energy surging through me. This shall be a massive undertaking to do an about-face, but isn’t that really what life is all about? It’s not in the journey on the main road getting there, so much, as finding deeper meaning in the detours we take in falling off the road. They are often trying and demanding detours. They are a maze of possibilities we are tossed into and we must find our way clear. Do I do this or that, do I go here or there? Decision making that ultimately will end up altering our way of life and encouraging us to move in a new direction. It’s like doing a body cleanse. Sometimes we just have to wipe the slate clean and begin anew as our consciousness has shifted.

Recently I have seen life in shades of colors for some reason. It is almost as if words can no longer express what I am seeing or experiencing. I see the color red everywhere obviously as there is anger and hatred and violence everywhere it seems. I see a good deal of brown shades all about as the environment begins to seriously decline and die. I see green EVERYWHERE as that is the energy color of money in my mind. Life these days seems to be all about money and control. But…That said, I also see a soft gossamer yellow energy hovering like fog all across the planet. It is the energy of many minds coming awake and seeing true reality for the first time. Explosions of new energy joining together. It is kind of electric and pulsating. The glowing fog overhead is the heartbeat of the people waking up together in slow unison.

In re-creating my story I will choose to bathe my painting in rich colors that please me and those around me. The simplicity and richness of the color of heavy cream will be the background of my masterpiece. Β It is a favorite color. I wish the skies to be shades of lavender to express the infinite possibilities gaining higher consciousness can provide us on our path forward. Β The white of the tumbling puff clouds high up in the lavender skies represent the purity of heart I choose to encourage within myself to become a better person. I see splashes of vibrant colors amongst the wildflowers in the fields I can visualize, splashes of my creativity I wish to bring to my life and leave everywhere I go. I see shades of metal gray that speak to the strength and courage I must bring forth to conquer my fears to complete this mission. Thankfully the color is not a cold gun metal gray, for it seems to shimmer and glisten like iridescent glitter. In other words I chose to make my new story strong and positive and from my heart. We are all the artists of our lives, and what we chose to paint is always up to us. What colors will you choose to paint your life story?

Blessings to all,

    • Welcome Cynthia…Good having you here πŸ™‚ It is an honor to finally understand we are the true makers of our story or in this case the true artists of our masterpieces. Fun to look at life as an empty canvas and all of the scenes and colors and textures we can create on it. Have a wonderful weekend and don’t be a stranger here πŸ™‚ Blessings…VK


    • So synchronistic that you should pop in to read and comment. I have been wondering how to get into some art form to release creativity. The kind of detailed art you do is kind of what I would like to get into. I could do the art work part okay, it’s the coming up with ideas of what to draw that have always stopped me. There are no ideas flowing out. I’ve always imagined you either have the ideas or you don’t. I wonder if you can learn how to think of ideas? I will have to pick your brain πŸ™‚ VK

      • Oh my goodness! I love this! You know…I’ve been thinking about writing a series of blog posts on finding and brining more creativity into your life! Yes! I’m doing a series on meditation right now but wanted to do a series on creativity eventually. I might have to fast-track that and do them in May. Yes…to synchronicity!

      • I should clarify: I have one site that is my drawings and another that is sort of…personal development and creativity. I’m still finding my way with it…but getting there. πŸ™‚

  1. My heart is with you in your paint box of colours VK.. This piece was so well written.. I can almost sense that struggle to hold on as been relinquished as you now prepare to go with the flow.. Knowing as you do we create with thoughts.. You are preparing your canvas. And you also know that with any blank canvas, you are the one who can paint all of your desires and dreams into reality.. It is just waiting for you to take up the brush and apply the paint..
    The colours are always of your own choosing.. And I know they will blend perfectly in all you create..

    My own world at the moment is full of green.. Green for growth, green for learning.. Its a light Spring Green pale and full of contentment.. For I know the world is as it should be.. I just need to focus upon my own creations to help the bigger picture come into being..

    I know you also hold that brush lovingly within your hands..

    Sending you lots of Love as you embark upon this new path.. I know it will be smoother than you think..
    Love Sue xxx

    • Thank you DW….Your thoughts are always like a warm embrace! So glad you are painting green!!!! There is nothing better than learning and growing, such an amazing journey to embark on. And you actually paint! I am trying to figure out a craft I can put my creativity into right now. My writing fills my creative need mentally, but I need to find a way to physically release my creativity with my hands as well. I so wish I had talent for art like you do. That must make it so much fun. I will discover something I hope and can delve into it this summer…
      Stay content as so much of the world is not and the world needs to feel that energy to shift into better ways of being. Stay green πŸ™‚ in many ways and enjoy your spring and soon to be summer. Yay!!! My love to you my friend….Peace to your heart….VK ❀ πŸ™‚

  2. I look forward to your masterpiece, although, you already are one!
    I love your descriptions of the colors. I when the sky is lavender at dusk, but I would miss that deep deep blue of our atmosphere. I have had dreams where I am somewhere where the sky is lavender.
    Beautiful, VK.

  3. Enjoy your creating as you go along, VK!
    Oddly enough, I’ve been doodling away of late, and my main colour to use has been a soft golden yellow… I’ve added three little ‘trips’ on my blog recently. The first one was mostly blue… and blue is the opposite colour to yellow. You mentioned recently I was using yellow quite a lot… it does now seem as though I am!
