So, I have a new website http://artoftheage.com . I have leggings, yoga leggings, capris, tanks and more. I am will be adding more things to it continually. I am planning on art prints and new jewelry. I am so excited to finally have a website again. I have been without one for three years now. Time to move forward again with my life goals, which are numerous. I have so many new ideas for artwork. I wish there were more days in the week or perhaps I need a clone.
One day at a time, I am told, one day at a time. Breathe and keep walking the path. That’s the joy of life.
Love and Light,
No matter what is happening around you, and what other people are thinking or feeling, trust yourself above all things. You are the only authority that you need in your life. Own it. Own all of who you are, every molecule, every bit of your essence. Know that you are the Creator of it all, in every action and thought that you are being. You are the All That Is, and you are One with the Universe. Accept every foible, every bit of greatness that is within in, and yes, take a good look in the mirror, do you like what you see in your life? Go beyond the physical and really take a look. You can change whatever you perceive is not in alignment with your true self.
Love and Light, Ellen

I don’t know if anyone will read this, but I just thought I would write something. I haven’t for a long time. So, my chosen topic is: Love is the answer to all things. I have been told this many times but what does that mean, really? Here are some of my thoughts on the subject. Love has many ways of expressing itself, if we allow ourselves to let it do so. Love is often the motivating factor for making positive change in one’s life. In fact it is the motivating factor. It is the reason people strive for making this world a better place.
Love begins with self. It comes from within and we express ourselves with love or without love depending upon any given circumstance. Many people are feeling stretched to the limit; these are stressful times. People do not always react in a loving fashion to their circumstances or others around them. They forget their true origins and their connection with their own divine nature. In this world it is easy to forget but now we are awakening to ourselves and our divinity. And still it is difficult to rise above it all and remain our loving selves. We remind ourselves everyday that love will find a way, even when we are not feeling very loving toward ourselves or our fellow human beings. We forgive ourselves and hopefully laugh at our own shortcomings and slowly pull ourselves up out of the quagmire of the world around us. Seeking the safe haven of our own heart and soul and the desires of our soul’s expression. I say this to all those who seek the answers elsewhere. The answers are always within you, no exceptions. You can ask any number of people what you should do, but only you can really answer your life’s questions. What makes a difference in your decision is what you base that decision upon. Sometimes playing it safe isn’t the safest or wisest thing to do. Love will take you places unimagined if you will only let it. Remember, you have wings. Jumping off the cliff might be the right way to go. Sometimes it is the only way. Even as I write this, I feel a little smile come across my face because I know I must choose something extraordinary to do with my life because that is what is within me to do. I have been teetering on the edge with indecision for too long and must choose carefully to make a successful leap into the happier life I seek. I must.
We let our circumstances dictate to us instead of allowing our own inner truth to guide us on the path to a better way of living. Some are finding things easier and smoother than others. Those that are experiencing difficulty and are aware of their own foibles will wrestle every side of the argument to the ground before doing exactly what was in their heart to do, no matter how crazy it may seem, because it is the right thing to do. Now, there is a lot of love needed in this world. Being more loving to ourselves extends outward. There are so many people in severe circumstances in this world. Humanity is challenged as never before to end war, famine and greed and find solutions to our planet’s distress. This world is sitting on a precipice and we must all band together to renew and protect this precious ecosphere.
Love must find a way. It is time to remove the rose-tinted glasses and see what is happening and how we must change to enable a sustainable world. It is happening in so many ways but there are still so many destructive forces rampaging the planet that must be counteracted in order for us to survive. I hope that humanity rises above the chaos of it’s own folly and opens once more to what it could be. We must continue to turn the tide toward renewal.
OK. Here I am. Didn’t finish the painting of my previous post. So I have to laugh at the absurdity of my life of late. The desire is there, the ideas scroll through my mind ad infinitum. The best ones usually come to me when I am busy with other things, like in the middle of a work shift. When I decide to sit and sketch, they vanish. Great. Full of energy at the wrong times too. Are we having fun yet? I just love the earth changes thing, it’s so much fun.
For you viewing pleasure, here is a painting I did awhile ago.
I am spiritual, very spiritual. I walk this world with full awareness of spirit and the energy of all life surrounding me. I have been fully aware for 28 years. I have had visions and a certain level of awareness since the age of 4, although I did not become more conscious until I was 25. I have always considered myself to be an upbeat, positive person but these have been challenging times. I think we chose this challenge, every bit of it. I say ‘we’ because I know others who are experiencing the same conditions of reality in the world as we think we know it.
That being said, are we having fun yet? I am reminding myself and anyone who might read this and relate to it, laughter is the best medicine. Laugh, because it is all so absurd. Smile at your own fumblings and remember it is all of your making. As ridiculous as it may sound, greet each day as a fresh opportunity to take a step toward whatever goal or dream for which you want to shoot. Inch forward, crawl if you have to, but do not give up what is in your heart and soul to do. Remember who you are and the joy of living even in your lowest moments. If you and I can do that then, well, perhaps there is hope for this world.
Love and Light,
Out of the chaos, I cling to hope and a brighter future. Presently I project to invest my time and energy in producing new artwork and living my life from a clear center of defined purpose. This last year has been a bleeping rollercoaster. I used to like rollercoasters, but not the emotional/financial kind that I have been on since my mother died.
I am an artist. I enjoy doing portraits, pets or people. I like working with old photos. I plan on doing more nostalgic art. I enjoy working in different media. I am available for commissioned artwork. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a sincere interest in having a custom artwork done for you.
A dove landed on my balcony three times today when I was preparing posts and doing website updates. This never happened before. It stayed awhile too. Very reassuring. Bidding me peace and letting me know that the universe is with me. It gave me great hope. When the butterfly joined it, flittering around for awhile, I smiled. Yes, things are going to be alright. Faith is a funny thing. This inner sense of knowing that it will all work out and I will be happy with the results. I have worked too hard and too long for anything else. My consciousness will no longer accept anything else. So, it is.
I am attuned to the subtle nuances and signals that the universe sends me. I try to control what I put out as well. That is a harder discipline. I have been on this path all my life and consciously aware of it for almost 4 decades. OMG, is it that long. How can that be? 29 forever, right? Keeping your sense of humor these days is, I think, very important.
The reason I am sharing this is to remind people to pay attention to the little things. Life is sending you signals. Answers to your myriad questions are right before you, within you. Multiple solutions, multiple ways, which way is best is up to you to decide, and then ACT. Who you are is up to you, and you alone.
A wish list:
I wish you peace and joy and prosperity.
I wish for an end to world suffering, and that peace prevail sooner than later.
I wish for a cure for cancer to actually make it out to the market (it already exists). Cancer took my sister, too young, only 56. I know she is still with me, often.
I wish for my friends’ and family’s health and prosperity.
