ART in FOCUS: Storm Passing

Storm Passing
Rejoice the passing of a storm, for it is an opportunity to rebuild from a position of increased wisdom and experience.

The artwork that I would like to share with you today is called 'Storm Passing'.
As always the message shared is not the only message found within the artwork.

Accompanying message for Storm Passing:

Rejoice the passing of a storm, for it is an opportunity to rebuild from a position of increased wisdom and experience.

Sharing my wisdom:

When all is in chaos, do not dwell on all that is going wrong or being affected. Seize the opportunity to resolve/address/pay attention to all that has arisen.

It may be that there is something that has been left unattended that can wait no longer. Do not dread that which is commanding your attention. Rejoice for once passed that which has been weighing inside, is cleared and you have the opportunity to build as a more experienced and wiser person.

I am not saying that it is easy to do this. The default to dwell on the negative is often easier. But if you choose to be strong and to explore deeper into the events that are occurring, rather than thinking all this is happening ‘TO’ you, you may realise it is happening ‘FOR’ you.

I was recently happy with my choices and the direction I was taking with my art and spiritual path. Until my ‘storm’ occurred. At first I put my walls up and didn't want to budge as I was happy and thought I was heading in the direction that was right for me.

Well, once I began to pay closer attention to the messages around me, I realised that though part of me was happy with the current direction, I was not fulfilling the other parts of me (mother, wife, home-maker). Once I was willing to address that which I had been putting off, that which was very confronting and hard for me to accept. Once I decided to be courageous and accept and forgive myself for my past weaknesses, I was able to grow and to begin finding harmony and flow with all parts of me (which I am sure will be an ongoing project!).

The passing of the storm is an occasion to celebrate if you choose to pay attention and seize your opportunity for resolution and growth.
