Soulful journey in Mexico update: reflections through nature and art

Hola to

the world out there,

The journey continues through art therapy, art and soulful exploration of self and others in places where somehow I was meant to go and experience life as it happens.

Recently I have been spending time pondering in nature through beautiful meditations, pranayama, and yoga at sunrise at the ocean in the Caribbean.While I get to tune in, reattune and breathe I discover more of self and others in the world through energy and the beautiful world of creativity. Art, expressivecreation as the essence of life, unfolds through my own process, connecting with that of others and working with emotions and feelings of people and places.

So much happens daily that often we loose connection with the source, with our special connection with nature and the metaphysical energy that bypasses our little knowledge of quantum physics…I am grateful how this journey of expressive therapies/nature therapies is reconnecting me with my inner being and gently reminds me of the basics and how fundamental they are. So at the end of the end of the day once you practice gratitude and kindness you cannot hold on to negative feelings because everything comes and go and in order to leave in peace you need to learn to let go, to breathe consciously and observe, decide when to engage and remember it is all part of the process of continuous becoming where the only true core is the Self experiencing life.

Find Stillness Within :)

Once more I am learning about patience, vulnerability, sickness, struggle and resilience…

In the mist of chaos in surroundings, I was reminded by mindful meditation that I can still find stillness, bringing mindful attention to the here and now and reach deep awareness of body and mind….

Finding a balance and aiming at wellbeing is the mission:)

Namaste,

On the Art Therapy path

After many whereabouts, meeting and collaborating with inspiring people and amazing projects with different communities I am finally on the official track for art therapy education and qualifications:)

I feel that my interests, background and holistic approach will grow further.

So yep Lizzie is back in Grad school:) Back to learning not just theory, but also practicing and of course continuing making art as an artist, but also as an art therapist in training. It is in the field training that I love to experience how the pieces of the puzzle get together, how theory meets practice:)

AT wall semester 1

P.E.T.E.’s School for Special Children support our Indiegogo project only 21 DAYS LEFT!

Hello everyone:)

I know it has been quite a while…I disappeared from the cyber world but I have been networking and following projects in the world around me:) Finally getting back and it is great to catch up with amazing creatives and inspiring people from all over!

 

I would like to bring the attention to P.E.T.E. NGO in New Delhi and the project we set up on Indiegogo to open a new school for special children in the slums as time is running out…ONLY 21 DAYS!!! Please help us make this project a reality!!!

Directly from P.E.T.E. UPDATE

“Introducing our newest project….. P.E.T.E.’s School for Special Children

We want to provide a safe place where children with special needs can

learn and grow. One volunteer, Lizzie, was inspired by a child named

Sandeep that she met in the slums. After building a friendship with

Sandeep, she wanted to do something for him and the other special

children after she left India. Lizzie has teamed up with P.E.T.E. To help us

open a new school for children with special needs to learn through music,

art, and creativity. We need to raise $3,500 to make this school possible

and we depend on the support of people like you! We have included a link

to our crowdfunding campaign and we hope that you will consider giving to

our cause. Please help make the school for special children possible! Every

donation is appreciated and helps us get closer to reaching our goal!”

Namaste 🙏 Lizzie’s update from projects and travels in India

It has been a while since my last post….
I have been wanting to write updates from the incredible journey through India but life has been quite chaotic and filled with unexpected events and situations;)

Artevolutions is a space I created to connect and share anything about life, inspire and be inspired… Life itself is a form of art and what we make throughout every day we are able to create, share and connect amazing moments… I have decided to follow my latest journey adventures in India via writing in this blog…I hope that anyone who is interested in my experiences can find my posts useful and inspiring;)

A bit more than six weeks ago I embarked on an adventure of travels and projects with small NGOs operating in India….I first arrived in the north of the country and travelled a little to get a grasp of the culture, differences, people and traditions….As often described travelling to India is a full immersion into another world with a powerful experience through all senses….flavors, smells, colors, art and architecture, performances, music, dances, spices, food, local vendors, the noise, the super crowded spaces….then there are different realities codex insisting side to side and it can get quite difficult to cope….

It has been incredible to meet so many people on my path and connect….in particular I have managed to learn and share experiences with local communities in the Thar desert where a there is a fabulous project of some village tribes to become eco-friendly, self sufficient and bring education in the desert….Amazing minds and ideas coming from people that cannot read or write and yet have such a beautiful vision for the next generations is so touching and inspiring….So far I have done surveys and research and we are building a team of people interested in making rural communities self sustainable and educated…so anyone interested or having particular skills please get in touch!

Then I got to meet an incredible teacher and social worker Mr. Hari who is bringing education, with very poor or inexistent schooling structure, to the most remote villages in the countryside and hills in the areas around Khajuraho….Embarking on those long bicycle journeys to get to villages and seen students so excited to learn and gain a better future goes beyond words…Children and older students understand the importance of changing the lives of the new generations and how education is the key to change.

So far my journey in India has been an incredible country where I made incredible encounters;) I got to experience life from a very special standpoint and even though at times things seem hard as dealing with different realities the kindness and welcome of amazing people enabled me to continue through my journey… Feeling that my efforts and time within local communities is so appreciated that everything feels so light and these experiences are contributing my personal development and getting a wider perspective on life….

So while my research, contribution and connection to spread awareness and implement these project continues ( they are projects at very initial states, so anyone who wants to contribute with knowledge, skills or interest is more than welcome) my journey continues adventuring with a small NGO: PETE Providing Education To Everyone in New Delhi Slums….next post will be focusing on that experience and the fundraising campaign I am preparing;)

Please connect to my social media links on this page ( twitter and artevolutions on Facebook to get updates on developments of the projects) and if you are interested in seeing India through my eyes you can see pictures on my Facebook page (Lizzie Bellotto) or Instagram (@lizzieartnsurf)

What is your guiding word for the year? Let’s join the REVOLUTION from the HEART:)

As I was pondering on some topics on conscious evolution and a fab moment of synchronicity led me to the beautiful post by amazing and inspiring Sue Dreamwalker: Connection via the matrix !!! Sue explains and illustrate so well how everything is connected and how through our own process of evolution we can awaken to the Truth…We then have the resources to experience and explore the world as it really is rather than how we have been told to believe.. Once we get to feel the Energy and its flow we get to know the interlinked pathways of the “WEB”… Have a look at Sue great post explaining Energy Grids –Ley Lines and vortexes and how outer energy of the planet connects with our inner energy of ourselves….This even connects with yesterday’s post as our inner energy can affect the outer one and the other way around:) Looking inward to change outward

More and more people feel the global SHIFT in consciousness, we go through few energetic shifts in consciousness in our personal evolution and this is contributing to the collective evolution…It is said that we are moving towards moments of bigger shifts within the passing of physical time we perceive on the planet.

Recently I was asked whether I have a word for the new year… Time in the physical dimension is so relative…In fact some (me included) are still waiting for the new year LOL 🙂 The thing is that a guiding word, or rather the feeling of it found me… So FLOWING is the word that found me before I could even think about it….The beautiful free flow of Qi, experienced through Qi Gong, is re-connecting the balance of flowing energy in myself, towards others and the earth. By unblocking energy points, emotions feelings and everything is FLOWING. This process fosters creativity, positive thinking, feelings and actions, raising vibrations and enabling to experience and understand that WE ARE ONE. Since everything is connected so are our words and intentions….

So what is your guiding word, what word has found you?

Enjoy the journey and whatever comes across your path:)

As Sue reminds us we can direct our energy to bring balance on the planet… Mass Consciousness facilitates major change and we see that in our recent history.

Dr. Hawkins and his research show how the higher vibration of Love promotes conscious evolution and brings positive changes.  

Sue invites us to join and connect via the Grid to open our heart and connect it to the world to send Love…

Let’s join the REVOLUTION from the HEART:)

Happy Solstice!

Today it is a special day where we get to feel and appreciate our deep connection with the planet. It is so awesome to connect with the energy and vibes of everything around and tune into inner wisdom …..

I have encountered some amazing celebrations…mantra, meditations, music, art and dance ….Now even in cyber space people manage to connect and share their vibes and thoughts….I am grateful to connect with  this beautiful energy that transcends time and space. Thank you everyone for tuning into this amazing portal where the planet loudly dialogues with us!!!

“The change in the Sun’s relationship with the planet has a significant impact on the lives of people, particularly for those who inhabit the region of the earth between eighteen degrees to forty-eight degrees north latitude, because this part of the earth gets the maximum impact in this shifting. A human being cannot escape anything that happens to the planet – because what we call as “myself” is just a piece of this planet, and a more sensitive and far more receptive part of the planet than what is there as earth. So whatever happens to the planet will happen a thousand-fold more within the human system.”  Shaman Bhola Nath Banstola

The most precious gift….

Enjoy and share the gifts of light:)
