I was prompted to paint for some time, years, and I resisted, thinking I couldn't paint. One night at midnight (almost all my paintings were done at night), I painted my first painting. It transported me -- I'm channelling this artwork. When I do my healing work and when I paint, I tune in, listen and do as I'm directed. I have a powerful guidance group that guides me through everything. They are involved in these paintings. I might even say they paint the paintings. All of this work is guide by the masters, ascended masters, angels, arch angels, whom I call the 'usual suspects'. Saint Germain, Jesus, Archangel Gabriel. I start painting, get the colours I like, get the brushes, mix the paints and then it just flows. These paintings are what come out. As it dries overnight, the power of the painting comes to light. I'm not a trained artist. I'm painting from what comes from within me to what comes through me.
Art is a Language by Aurora Ginger My Take on Art
Art is a language without words yet speaks totally to the viewer. It speaks to the 'emotions'. One "feels" art. Its language is multifaceted. It speaks a different language to each viewer and not the same way twice.
Art always gives, it never takes. It shares something of yourself, the viewer. The expression of the artist is from deep within and unknown until it breaks forth in the form of paint or cloth or paper or concrete or wood; whatever medium is used to translate from the unseen to the physical. If it is any good and effective, it does not come from the ego. The ego is set aside and the form comes from that deep internal place of no language but definite knowing.
The artist shares that specialness with the viewer, but more importantly with herself.
Art is received on an internal level or no words. Those who try to explain art in words know nothing about which they speak. Art is not a mental entity. Art can only be experienced by being - perhaps not even knowing why. The experience and feeling is enough. It is indeed the purpose. It reaches into a deep place within the viewer and in a connective way pulls that out for the viewer to see ... mirrored reflections and memories ... acknowledgements and recognitions ... allowing ... acceptance.
Purpose: That the people of age and experience called seniors be appreciated for their value, experience and knowledge and to be celebrated for what they can contribute to society.
No more waste in throwing away these valuable resources. We can help them to teach us their knowledge and experience and to share their lives with children and each other.
Goals: For this major section of our communities to experience internal care of worth and as a source of contribution to life, themselves and others. To experience self-appreciation, to stop the devaluation of experience, to celebrate "golden resources" and to accelerate the potential of others by speaking, teaching and otherwise contributing to society, this magnifies our resources.
Methods: Begin with sharing what they have done in life that works, their attitudes and implementation of ideas. Pair them with children of similar interests. They together work out a game plan for a project. Bring in guest speakers talented in their fields. Fundraising - a national essay contest with a fee to enter and suggest how these goals can be accomplished. There will be WINNERS in the contest judged for best ideas with criteria.
Some of these ideas will be supported by the organization that takes this project on. The best ideas will be put in a book to be shared with entities wishing to form communities who will nurture and put to use these ideas.
Results: The "Golden Resources" of our society learn to love themselves and appreciate their value, to see their contribution as positive and worthwhile. This will bring out each others' talent and skills and share them with each other and with children.
Children will benefit from the expertise and learn talents they would otherwise not be aware of, see new possibilities for careers and learn management skills from tried and true experiences.
All will learn social skills by working with each other for common goals while broadening their life experience.
