I have been, as of late, revisiting interests of my youth. Film, gallery showings, dance and grass roots theatre were my life. the stage and immersing myself in this world of culture, diversity and colour was a safe way of expressing my intuitive and energetic abilities.
Each brushstroke, word written, note sung, choreographed step within a dance piece or play is an energetic experience offered and uttered with intention and meaning. Flawless in its connection to the performer’s mechanism…the body, mind and spirit.
This connection is so tirelessly explored through rehearsal, rewrites and so much more. the audience is given a gift of creation that speaks from the very soul of the artist. They connect so deeply with their art that it slips through them seamlessly, moving from their being to the witness, irreversibly changing both viewer and performer forever.
Storytellers who keep our histories alive to create new awareness, challenge our realities and viewpoints. Art is meant to enlighten, disturb, and elevate us on a vibrational level. They are empaths, energetic maestros touching the deepest and most primal aspects of who we are.
They Fall asleep thinking about and becoming their art. Visions inspired by a higher calling, many artists attribute their genius to something unseen they simply trust. The nine muses following each of them in a way that is necessary for their creative growth.
Many feel possessed by their creations and fully become them. Some dismiss these rare encounters as flights of fancy…But were they?
Every aspect of everything is within us. Each of us is the lover, the thief, the maiden, the hero. Given the correct circumstances we reveal them fully. Where better and safer than the stage, the screen, the book , or the canvas.
The play space of art allows us to express our energetic selves freely. Stepping into the artist arena beckons us to strengthen our creative muscles. Filling our energetic being with experiences balances and re-balances us in order to bring life truthfully to the art.
This is the artists life. Courageously Feeling the hurts, wounds, joys of each creation regardless of expression. Many driven to madness and seclusion, understanding life so deeply they carry the heaviness and wonders of the world as their burden.
They connect us to each other, the earth, the animals, and universal knowledge ancient and new. They are the messengers, heralds of good news and bad, bravely speaking truths. Lend your ear to their whispers, your time to their work. Let their words and expression move you to expansion of self. This is life. This is what its about. Growth, change, movement.
