Art As Prayer
The practice of art as prayer was an evolutionary process for me. I was teaching myself to paint on the computer using Photoshop, and this process naturally evolved. Every night I was creating angels, flowers, and some abstract art using the computer program, exploring colors and techniques. I started to notice there were days where the energy of the images was very strong and seemed to evoke a powerful response in me and in others that was heart opening. So I decided to check into it and see what was different about these images I was creating.
After some exploration I found that I was using art as prayer.
I understand now, that I was being used to bring light, and blessings to situations in the world through my art. I was writing about my process of co-creation, and I was prompted to look back at what was going on in the world when I created some of these images. So I looked back at the dates of when these files were created and did a Google search for the news that day. What I consistently found was there were situations and challenges going on in the world that the images appeared to be related to. There was a strong light energy in the paintings that I feel was to support the healing of whatever the situation was.
It was an eye-opening and humbling experience for me, and it has been an ongoing dialogue with spirit ever since. I have been working with myself to move more fully into this practice of co-creating and bringing light and blessings into situations around the world where there has been suffering and a lack of acceptance.
Here are a few examples of what I created.
