What Was That?
I pieced together a crayon sketch of the dream. The dream was like viewing a stained glass window.
"I" somehow got drawn into the window?
The darker disturbing dream sequences are new for me. Why?
The picture of the figure stayed with me, in a haunting way.
One day a friend stated:
* "I really don't like the picture in that blog post."
"I don't like it either."
When she went home, I retrieved the picture from it hiding place "underneath" a pile of sketches and notes.
I ripped up the dark picture in little bits and pieces! I felt better, clearer~lighter
Next I gathered the bits of colored slashes onto a plain white piece of paper. This will make it easy to recycle the shreds without dropping the pieces here and there on the floor.
Then, I noticed as I picked up the white paper and scraps, the shapes looked interesting,
like an abstract design.
Well! I set the white paper down and played with the pieces of colors and lines, removing most of the black but not all. I kept a little bit of the dark for accent, just like my high school art teacher taught me.
The shapes arranged themselves, free of conscious thought of my own. I love it! I taped the newly arranged bits onto the white paper.
Stepping back~I felt a warm and positive "house" for me, a sacred space. The spontaneous design of "tear and tape" technique opened a new window into myself. I felt dimensions of space and time. I basked in the brightness of images and colors. I felt motion in stillness.
** "Approach Today Gently...."
Slowly I began to re-write (re-paint) my past to be more positive. I picked up a card, it read "Clear Your Space." I chuckled
After starting to clear and move forward, (again) I am now authentically happy for the upbeat visual movie fantasy dreams that are arriving. I feel connected in a quiet way to these wonderful scenes and flashes of color and light.
I am happy my night dreams and my waking reality are turning and returning into light shows.
"Today" I am coloring more, I am finding more humor (who me) in life!
