Well-being

mix

I am working toward my own sense of what well-being means to me, and while I am doing that I continue to pursue my goals of having a profitable business.   I have had a difficult year and things are starting to turn around.  I realize that I am not the only one experiencing change at this time.  I have a plan to make great improvements to my service to the world.  I have already added Reiki Master Teacher and Therapeutic Art Life Coach to my repertoire.  I am developing how I want to work with people in an expanded way and helping them live a balanced, happy life.  I have always done transformational healing work and have wanted to continue in an expanded way with this work.  I am currently developing classes that I could offer along these lines that will help people overcome obstacles in their consciousness that are blocking their happiness or success in life.

I have been bouncing around what direction I really want to take with my artwork.  I have too many interests and I know it would help to have a more focused agenda.  I am a creative soul and must continue to explore this avenue of self-expression if I am to be happy, but I have never been completely satisfied with just doing art.  I have a need to serve the community as well.  While art can serve a purpose, be it by inspiring, healing, or engaging people, I still want to work with people.

So, here I am.  I have some my jewelry and art on this blog site.  I offer custom art services (not just pet portraits).  I offer readings via Skype. I also offer distance Reiki healing sessions.  You can email me at artoftheage@gmail.com to set up an appointment.

Love and Light,

Ellen

Creating heaven on earth

 
We are the bridge through which the Light of the higher dimensions flows through into this earthly reality. The illusion of the separation must be erased within each individuals consciousness. We are not separate from the universal reality from whence we originate. We are not alone in our daily walk either. Many beings from many dimensions are around us supporting us in our quest to be free light beings, conscious creators of our reality. Remembering your divine origin and birthright are a major part of what the new age movement is about. It is critical now for us to remember our connection with all Life and understand the consciousness uplifting of the planet.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Earth is a conscious living being. We are One with it and what we do to the planet, we do to ourselves. This evolution of consciousness is changing the way we do things in this world. There is much hope for the future and the saving of the planet and the other species that reside upon her. We are all instrumental in this process. We are here to recreate the heaven that was once this planet’s reality, when mankind lived in harmony with nature. We all have our roles to play. Remembering what you came to do in this world is part of the process. It is time to awaken.

New website

tranquilityyoga

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,

Ellen

Believe in yourself

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

Love is the answer

         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.

Laughter is the best medicine

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,

Ellen

Into the 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 eeschwege@gmail.com if you have a sincere interest in having a custom artwork done for you.
