What does Art mean to You?

What does Art mean to You?

By Sara Jane

What do you think of when you hear the word Art?

Do you think about pictures and painting, oils and watercolours?

Do you think of the great artists including Constable & Picasso with their very different styles?

Or is music bought to mind, the classical composers such as Mozart and Benjamin Britten or modern-day composers such as Paul McCartney?

Do you think of photographers, sculptures, choreographers, architects, landscape gardeners, actors, singers, authors, designers? The list goes on.

Finally, do you think about yourself?

Had it occurred to you that you are the artist of your own life?

You were born with a blank canvas and every action, every experience you have adds colour and substance to your canvas.

Or you could choose the analogy of your life being like a book and every new day starts with a blank page. What story are you weaving into your life story today?

This morning as I was thinking about writing this article, I came across this quote by Sophie Bush

You are allowed to be both a Masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously”.

Had it occurred to you that you are a Masterpiece, that you were born perfect, that you were given everything that you require for the life you have chosen.

A little like a jigsaw puzzle, you have all the pieces and each day another piece fits into place.

When was the last time you looked at yourself and explored who you are, discovering something new about yourself?

A couple of years ago I discovered I could speak what I believe is our Soul Language, many call it Light Language.

Why was I so surprised, after all I channel many friends in the Mythical Realm including the Dragons, I also channel Reiki and Sound Energy in the form of Toning, so why not be a channel for our Soul Language as well?

Recently I connected with a gentleman in Holland, Jos of Yosiji Music, he took one of my spoken Soul Wisdom Messages and a sung one and used the magic of his art, creating music behind them.

I was amazed at what he did but more amazed at how he made me sound. I have never considered myself a singer but to my ears the sung message sounds wonderful.

The art of his work and mine…

You are the Artist of your life, explore your gifts, have fun with them, experience them, share them, love them.

Don’t judge them or let others, they are uniquely yours.

Just as some love classical music and others love Punk Rock, some love traditional art and others prefer contemporary art, we are all different in who we are, in our likes and dislikes.

That is what makes this world such a beautiful work of Art.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up” ~ Pablo Picasso

Life is a Dance

Life is a Dance

By Sara Jane

What is your favourite music to dance to?

When was the last time you let yourself feel the music?

Do you have a song or piece of music that when you hear it, you close your eyes and just let your body move or sway to it?

How do you feel when you are dancing?

Life is a dance, have you heard it said, “When you stumble, make it part of the dance”? (Author Unknown)

Think about dancing, you move forwards and backwards, sideways, round and round J, this sounds like life to me, with all its twists and turns.

Sometimes we dance on our own, others we led, other times we are lead and then there are the group dances.

Look at Nature, she loves to Dance,

The wind in the trees swaying the branches and rustling the leaves

The Flowers rocking in the breeze

The courtship dances of so many animals

Birds hopping and bobbing

Butterflies fluttering

Waves splashing & crashing

Rivers and Streams trickling and rushing

Flames dancing and sharing their light

Everywhere you look there is movement, the dance of life surrounds us.

Let nature be your guide, join in her dance, your dance.

Life is all about movement, your heart pumps so that the blood flows around your body. You have to keep moving or your joints will cease up. Your hair and nails are always growing, all the cells in your body are continually renewing themselves.

A stagnant pond or pool slowly dies, there is no flow of fresh water. Let your mind dance with new information, learning something new, challenge yourself to move and grow.

You will have many different dances in your life, with many different people, each one will help you to grow and add new steps to the dance that is your life.

Choose your steps, dance to your own tune, this is your life to dance to as you choose; have fun with it, laugh and play with it.

Laughter: A Tonic for the Soul

Laughter: A Tonic for the Soul

“A smile is contagious, let's start an epidemic” I first read this while I was waiting for a blood test, it was on the wall of the cubicle and it has stuck with me ever since.

I did try researching the rest of these quotes about smiles and laughter but without much joy – hehe, please forgive the pun, it wasn’t intended.

A Laugh is a Smile that Bursts – Mary H. Waldrip

Laughter is the best Medicine

Smile and the world smiles with you, Cry and you cry alone

If someone doesn’t have a Smile of their own, give them one of yours

A Smile that touches your eyes, opens the windows to your Sole (not sure where this one came from, it may be from me).

Laugh, Laugh, Laugh

Says your Heart to your Lips

Smile, Smile, Smile

Says your Heart to your Eyes

Love, Love, Love

Says your Heart to your Mind

Open your eyes to the beauty that surrounds you

Smile as you witness the budding of a leaf

Smile as you see the blooming of a flower

Laugh as you watch the antics of the Animals

Share laughter with family and friends

Witness with Joy the growing up of your children

Let the sounds of laughter fill your house, your home

Listen for laughter everywhere you roam

Laughter is healing, it banishes the blues

Laughter is medicine, a tonic for your Soul

Laughter is a beautiful sound

The sound of joy and fun

The sound of children and play

Let your Inner Child out to play

Awaken the fun and joy within you

Feel your Heart swell and your mind relax

Life is a journey

A journey that should be filled with fun

Learn to play again, to dance again, to laugh again.

Love, Peace & Laughter
