"Strolling Through the Garden of the Dead: She is so sweet. She puts out her hand because she can feel them, even if she cannot see them. She knows they are there and is oddly comforted by that….."
As I allowed myself to paint intuitively without censor more and more, I began to have curious images come through. It took the observation of a friend to comment that it seemed that I was channeling spirits. That was a break through moment that relieved so much of the conflict in my mind. Indeed, this creative process was allowing me to connect with an empathic ability I had always had, but had repressed for various reasons. Although I do not consider myself a psychic where I read people’s thoughts, I do acknowledge the heightened levels of empathic and energetic sensitivity I have. This has transformed my life and helped me to befriend inner impulses that used to frighten me.
I am no ghost whisperer. Yet I now freely allow the unseen realms to come through my painting and drawing and I hold them in the Grace of Spirit. I realize now that our Souls are always beaconing us to listen and see the guidance that is beyond our physical senses and this process of Creative Inquiry can help to open up our natural abilities.
If this is an area of interest for you, try letting your non-dominant hand intuitively pick up a crayon and wander aimlessly over the page. Try not to direct it, but ask your Higher Self to guide it and see what comes through. Sometimes there are images or words that are relevant to our life if we stop and pay attention. What inner guidance is trying to come through for you?
