A couple of weeks ago I had a buyer who practically cleaned out my stock of paintings. This was great as I was still trying to source funds for a trip to Egypt I had already booked. My theory behind booking the holiday before I had the funds was:
- I am using the Law of Attraction and you must have faith that what you need is on its way
- I will procrastinate about going for the rest of my life if I didn’t make a move NOW
- I had finally convinced my husband that we NEEDED to go (lol) after many years of begging and never being able to be on the same page about this particular destination. He had a bad experience going through Cairo on his way to Israel many years ago. So, again, I felt the time for action had finally reared its persistent head.
Right, so with all that said, I licensed some of my art to a home goods chain store in the US and sold most of my art collection after I had put my trust in the manifestation of the money process and had gone ahead and booked the holiday. Fancy that?!
Now here I sit. My site where I sell my work is looking very bleak at the moment and I am pressed for time with mustering up another collection as my trip is literally around the corner and the paperwork is still being processed, which leaves me anxious about wrapping up the details.
A New Perspective
But then my dear partner pointed out that this is a whole new beginning for me — a clean slate to start afresh.
“I know about the law of least effort (thanks to Deepak Chopra) and I am applying it to my life.”
No matter how long it takes to build this up again, I get the chance to truly go further into what I want to paint and how long I take doing it is entirely up to me. There should be no pressure with the creative process, only enjoyment and true expression of what needs to come out and manifest in this reality.
So with that in mind, I will be starting this new adventure by going out into the big wide world and seeking the beauty and inspiration I need to get this new collection on the go.
The ‘old’ me would be frantically running around like a headless chicken trying to paint and build up some stock but the ‘new’ me knows better. I know about the law of least effort (thanks to Deepak Chopra) and I am applying it to my life. I have given myself no time limits and will now let it flow naturally…
I promise to document the process, so look out for this in my Tuesday Art Blog.
