It has been a very long time since I last posted here on my blog and for that, I’m so sorry!
As you know my life has been going through some challenges, my heart was broken and I shut myself down, protecting myself from all around me. But through my meditations and connection to my channel, to my higher-self, I have once again found my life, I have picked up my life through Art, this art and my daily meditation sessions have re-awakened me to the joys of life, my art has brought me freedom once again and helped me re-connect with humanity, to make new friends and to start to love again 🙂
I’m smiling, my tears are not just filled with sorrow anymore, they are filled with joy 🙂 My thoughts come and go and I’m once again living in the ‘Now’. Over the years, I have spoken about pain, compassion, joy, love sorrow and grief, and I believe also I have helped a few people along the way with the words that used to flow freely from my fingers within my posts. But these posts came to a staggering halt when I lost my love, I found it hard to open myself up to others, to interact, to be joyful beyond the smile I showed to people in my daily life, this false smile was hiding the true hurt inside my heart.
Picking up my pencils and my brushes have allowed the freedom of my spirit to talk to me through my art and it has helped me re-connect with humanity, to once again open up my heart to the joys that life really holds for me in this lifetime. I am truly awakened to a new me, to a new phase in my life and I feel stronger than ever before 🙂
I have added a few images of my latest venture into Thangka painting, this and my other art brings me joy, relaxes and calms my mind and allows the true me to open my heart to the future.
Here, is my latest painting, this one is entitled ‘Wesak’, Wesak is the birthday of Lord Buddha and I saw the image of the flowering Lotus and the monks surrounding the lotus; standing in awe and gazing intently at the beauty during its transformation from bud to flower. The image was very clear in my Third Eye during my meditation a week or so ago ,and I could not dismiss the opportunity of getting the image from my minds-eye and on to paper so to say. I

I,ve been away from my blog again for a while, but I have also been meditating a lot. During these deep meditations and channeling sessions, I have been experiencing very focused images in my Third Eye, scenes that I must put down in a painting, a creative image representing the vision that I experienced in the moment, in the ‘Now’ .
I have been lost for words of late, I just can’t seem to summon up the words to write a post, I have however been doing a lot of painting and drawing, usually following on directly after my meditations. During these meditations I have received strong visions, pictures so vivid that once I come out of meditation I start to draw or paint. So in light of my lack of written posts, I have attached a few of my most recent paintings for you viewing, amusement and or comments.

I wanted to share an event we held in Shanghai last Saturday evening, the event was all about communication, friendship, fun, creativity and teamwork.
We had about 60 people there ranging from young children of 5-12 and adults ranging from 18 to 60+ and from all walks of life, education level and business title.
The purpose was to create a masterpiece, something to be proud of, a painting to bring smiles to all our faces through communication and fun.
The following image was the picture we wanted to create.
Each person was given a canvas, an easel, paint brushes, paints and a 6 x 4 inch piece of the final painting which was cut down into about 60 pieces. Each person was put in a team of about 6 people and each person needed to create what was on their 6 x 4 inch piece of the paining on their own canvas.
Once everyone had finished we put all the individual paintings together to create this wonderful masterpiece.
The evening was fantastic, smiles were on everyones faces, lighter could be heard everywhere, people were communicating the old fashioned way…verbally..face to face 🙂
