This is a tough one for me.
I spent two days dancing with melancholy. It hit me when I was least expecting it. The previous days had been pure bliss, but before I could even recognize it… Bam! It was there… lingering around in every corner of the house, every corner of my being.
It normally happens when I‘ve been holding on to an emotion that I can’t manage to express or identify, it gets to a point when it simply floods my senses.
In the past months I have gone through some of the biggest changes of my life, and change, inevitably for me, brings some sort of mourning for what’s left behind… nevertheless.. This time it took me by surprise.
In the past I’ve needed help to figure it out (therapy, mandalas, meditation, reiki, diving in the ocean, you name it, I’ve tried it all)
But this time, my wisest inner-self was simply whispering gently and patiently… paint. Just paint. And then write.
So I did.
It took me a while to get into it but then it came pouring out of me in colors and textures.
It looked like a mess. And made no sense whatsoever.
But then I realized, it does not have to make sense at all. It just needs to come out.
What I do, how I do it, which colors or words I use, tools or fingers, it’s all the same.
If I sit down with the intention of opening , releasing, healing, creating, however you want to call it, I am enabling the transmutation of that energy.
Unwanted thoughts, sadness and rooted fears become something else. They become a bit lighter.
If you have also been going through some tough moments and maybe also need it,
Let your emotions breath.
Let them heal you.
Speak for you.
Why not? Let them fuel your inspiration.
And by all means, if you still cannot figure it out, never hesitate to ask for help.
You are never alone. You are always loved.
