I know this is a concept that I frequently shift my perspective and help me grow in mind, body, and spirit. Sometimes I catch myself consciously feeding on stories about a situation and it hits me…is this helping me or hurting me. So I ask myself how it will impact in the near or distant future and if I’m okay with the end results. I try hard not to listen to my ego, but to my intuition to help me decide.
Well, I realized yesterday that when I sat down to work on an illustration that I’ve been struggling with for months…approximately six months. Yes some of it had to do with truly having the time as life things that are important do truly come up. However, I had the thought you are literally at times making excuses for not finishing it….so why. Then my little voice inside me whispered “the character is not the one that feels like me.”
Well, after struggling for another thirty minutes, I put down my pencil, closed my eyes and imagined this part of the story. It changed right before my eyes. I picked up my pencil and brought the new character to life in less than an hour…which is definitely good for me. 😜 Needless to say, I changed that segment of my book and feel intuitively better about it.
So let me remind you you are the artist and writer of your own masterpiece. Step into your role with confidence and listen to your intuition. It’ll guide you in the direction you’re meant to go. I know there are situations outside of our actual control at times. However, the power is in our hands to shift our perspective and the story we choose to write or the picture we choose to paint about our experience.
If I didn’t listen to my intuition and decide to literally re-write my story and the story I was telling myself this adorable Dinocorn would not have been written into existence.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Sending much love, light, and warm hugs! 🤗 💞
