Inspiration from the circle of art

Namaste,

I still need to update posts from the road…getting there in due time;)

I am  finally able to reconnect with the vibrant energy of inspiring creatives over at the circle of art….I have been travelling and following interesting projects and ideas but I have been missing touching base with amazing people over at the circle of art:)

It is quite interesting bringing that inspiration into the reality I am experiencing at the moment…..Thank you Petrea and everyone at over at the circle of Art!!!

Sending lots of love and sunshine especially to those in cold weather 😉

“Being all there” wherever and whenever….

This was inspired by the beautiful prompt over at the circle of Art 🙂

The  Miyajima Torii is a real special place….the stunning floating gate to Itsukushima Shrine …part of the World Heritage Site on Miyajima Island.

The magic here happens following the tides cycles…when there is low tide one can get there by walking on the mud..then when high tide comes in the Miyajima Torii appears floating on the water….I feel that somehow those moments reconnects with the flow of our invisible Qi and the flow of life….

Kabir’s wisdom is so profound…It really doesn’t matter where we are at….All that matters is that any point is a starting point and we have the power to be active participants within that energy and create anything we want to ……

Tuning in Our Inner Guru

Today I came across a great post by amazing Cara Wilde: How To Recognise Your Truth .

Cara suggests a very interesting and practical exercise to get to know our real self and know if we are speaking our truth. This process of knowing when body and mind are aligned by listening to our body reaction  is very supportive in times of confusions when doubts overshadows the heart… Taking time to listen to our body feelings and reaction we are able to recognize our truth and “know”…

Thank you Cara for this practice helping to tune in our inner guru!!!

Interestingly my response to the Circle of Art prompt reconnects with the reflection on tuning in the inner guru:)

Open up to the endless possibilities

This week prompt over at the Circle of Art is such a beautiful reminder to broaden our perspectives and open up to the endless possibilities…

It may seem very difficult and sometimes the word and idea of  “impossible” may come up…but is it is only when we get going and evolve with the process that things unfold and take shape…So that word and idea are then replaced with the positive “possible” and everything looks different!!!

Magical Tour of Life inspired by the journey with Kiss of the Muse

Life got extremely hectic this summer luckily we get more sunshine and incredible energy to be super active:)

Recently I have been experiencing another amazing creative journey with Joy Hellman and her inspiring creative pilot course Kiss of the Muse…

In this creative journey once the seed is planted things just start blooming and connect through different parts of life and with the life of others.

A nice mantra I came across while traveling through East Asia came to mind so I revisited and altered my original shot….

The more I ponder on my creative concos, I experience and share creative moments and appreciate wonderful creations by others I feel that the special link that in many ways encompasses us all..we are all one through our subjective unique way of being and creating….

This painting was inspired by my progress through this new exciting adventure with Joy and the group Kiss of the Muse…

Another interesting idea that came up was that of photojournaling…well I have been kinda addicted to that for a long while now 🙂 and while before I was digitizing and archiving everything these days I find that some social media like Instagram can be used as  tools  to create and share a piece of our world… Or Pinterest where one can make, share and partecipate in collective visual boards …

If you want to see the world from my perspective you can find me @lizzieartnsurf on Instagram and Lizzie Bellotto on Pinterest, what does your world look like?

Have a great day world!
