This is one of my early abstract paintings, from the beginning of 2006. I didn't realize it had a man and an Eiffel Tower until I had nearly finished it. I love the light, color, and movement in it, and I can see my playfulness at the time with this new-to-me form. I called this piece 'The Man Abstract' because it reminded me of my husband, who lived in Paris for 5 years. We have gone there together several times, and I fell in love with that city too.
In continuing this revisiting of my older works, I realize I am collecting up quite a lot of my energy from the past. I have been obsessively organizing everything: all of my records and files, even my closet... because I can see that next year is going to be quite something. And I want to be ready for it. I don't remember ever being so certain I needed to prepare for the next thing.
I feel as if I have come to a turning point in my life, a positive one filled with possibilities and the ability to learn from what I have experienced until now. Add to that the desire for many more new and delightful experiences, and being able to validate myself and my work, and wow! I am having some of what I have wanted for a long time. I have had a lot of help along the way, for which I am grateful.
As I learned early in my psychic education, all healing is self healing. In order to heal, you have to want to. Otherwise all the greatest healers on the planet won't be able to do a thing to help you. It starts with you.
What would you like to heal in yourself?
