Administrator Lydia will be taking the site over on the 22nd July 2016
I would like to thank Kerrie and all the administrators, and all you lovely people on the site for having such an open, loving and supportive atmosphere on this site!
With all of your help and support I have started to believe my own experiences and my intuition with more focus, joy and gratitude!
Thank you all, you are amazing!
What I have understood recently, is that I was relatively heavy, stagnant and desperate for a good while trying to figure out 'what is my purpose'. I was brokenhearted because I didn't believe in myself. It was just as simple as that! (I still don't fully see what is my purpose, but I accept it as part of the ride...)
I have not fully come out of the 'Spiritual closet' to my friends and some of my family. I am sure many of you know what I mean...! I love my husband, he is my biggest support and we have been lucky to be on a spiritual journey together for the past few years. I can be myself with him, and a few beloved dear friends, but I am rather scared how my parents would react if I really told them how I see the world. (My Mother was raised as a conservative Christian, laestadianian to be more specific.) Being afraid has been the main reason why I have not been able to 'channel' my art properly and it is still difficult for me to be completely open about who I truly am.
When I was a teenager I used to post a lot of my paintings, drawing and poems online in online galleries. I gave up on it a good while ago, however, because the mentality on most sites was just...lets say out of order. Anyhow, I have started publishing my nature photography again in a photography blog called 'Forest & Nature Magic'. I add the link down below if you wish to pay a visit.
I actually started this new blog after I received a comment from the administrator K.P.Kelly complementing the photographs that I had published on this site. So a big, warm thank you to you Kelly! :)
Another aspect that I realized in this process was that I was blocked in a away, because I did not share my work: my photos, paintings or mixed media drawings with no one apart from my husband. Energetically it makes sense to me that because my drawings and photographs were not being shared, the energy involved in creating them was not flowing! So now that I have started to post my photographs online, although hardly anyone seems them still, I feel much better.
I am still working on finding the courage (and time) to properly share my art also. I have been very prolific this spring, so I have a lot to share, but I am still too nervous about it.
The latest post in my photography blog is a series of photographs from a 400-year-old forest in Finland and the forest spirits that I saw in the trees and rocks of the forest...!
So Thank you all again for being so kind, supportive and loving!
