Paper All Aglow: Channelling Parashiel

paperIt’s been what I call a ‘spaced’ day. A day when I found myself connecting to ArchAngel Parashiel and capturing his energy on paper. Of course I’m having an open house soon. I’m in the Hebden Bridge Open Studio weekend. No wonder this angel wants to get his vibration on display!

I had zipped over to my artist friend Kirsten as we often share painting days. However, I’ve been working on drawing Spirit faces for a little while. So I only had my charcoal pencils with me. After a couple of drawings I felt that I needed to get into colour. Fortunately Kirsten has a drawer full of paints so I dipped in to see what I came up with. Sitting back down in front of my blank sheet of paper I had no idea what to do. I already felt like I was floating in the energy so when I picked up the pistachio green I knew that Parashiel had joined me. He loves to share healing energy in every shade of green. Especially the bright greens.

Painting the background on my paper I wondered what else would be added. I have to say I wasn’t very surprised to find that the other colours were shimmering highlights. In the end the picture turned into a rainbow of colours that appear when the light is in the right place. I felt that was really appropriate. Most of us are unaware of our rainbow colours. How our aura is an ever changing light show. Threaded through our base colour are all sorts of wonderful highlights. I love the way the ArchAngels help us to understand and see our ‘shimmer’. Each time I work with them they radiate more colours for me to share too.

When I allow their colours into my aura it means I can share the energy vibration to anyone who connects with me. From paper to me to everyone around me. What a lovely way to spend a painting day with Parashiel, Etieliel and all the other angels. And to have some wonderful intuitive energy paintings to send out into the world too.

Painting Time: Letting Myself Get Creative

paintingIt’s been a while. Lots of changes have been going on for me. My painting has had to wait until I could get into my intuitive mind again. Finally today I got some time to work with my paint, brushes and canvas. And finish off some pieces I started last August.

I rediscovered my love for painting about nine years ago. Up until then, although I explored every museum and art gallery I came across, I lacked confidence in my own ability. It was only when my Guides encouraged me to take up psychic art that I found my feet again. And I had been off those creative feet for nearly all of my life. All due to the judgements of an art teacher at school. Yet when I stepped back into painting I felt like I had rediscovered a lost part of myself. It was joyful. Then stressful as I worked to remove the subconscious judgements I had taken on board. Then finally joyful once again. I tried all sorts of art. I even entered my work in a local competition and had some success.

Then, for most of last year, my creativity went into my book. Painting disappeared. Other things also got in the way. Changing my business around. Promoting my book. Starting the next book. With all of the nudges from my Guides that these were what I had to focus my energy on. Until a few weeks ago. I got out my paints and canvas. Placing them in a prominent position I kept walking past them thinking ‘I’ll start tomorrow’. It didn’t quite very mean that I started to paint. Until I arranged with a good friend, artist Kirsten Todd, to visit her. And take my work with me. In the company of such a good friend, and her daughter, I finally got some time to paint again. And I loved it. I’ve fallen back in love with painting once more.

I have completed some of the works I started a while back. Then there are those that still count as a ‘work in progress’. I am sure they will be done on another day soon. Because my passion for art is back too. It connects me directly to my intuition and feelings. The perfect connection for all of my other spiritual work. If you get a little time grab some paint and paper and take yourself off to a creative, intuitive space. You might surprise yourself.
