I would love to hear any if you've got them! The ones about art or music or work accomplishments that just flowed through you . . .

And especially if you have any that didn't flow at first but with which you eventually found alignment!

(Paintings, drawings, site designs, songs, poems, DIY home renovations, reports, speeches, client cases, anything pulled through you!)

Oh, I can start off with one, though it's not mine . . .

"The Power of One":
My 9yo nephew was supposed to enter an art contest fitting the theme "The Power of One" for his school. For some reason, they weren't able to do it until the night before. So his dad (my brother) and he just hurried and did something based off an Albert Einstein quote with a single bee drawn on it. It was done quickly and simply . . .

But he won the contest for his school. And then he won the state level, and then he won the regional level!

He's a creative little fellow and I've seen him manifest some incredible things. I love to think of how much power can be put into something in just one hurried night, with no real intention other than fulfilling an assignment, you know?

It reminds me to chill out- That big results aren't about hard work. :)



edit. Oh, I do have some for me!

Fanart
I've always been someone who gets REALLY into stories. And often I'm very inspired by things to the point that I just want to make art to more deeply explore concepts. So I have an online gallery with loads of pictures that were just done in passion (since it's not really a way to make money, you know?)

Anyway, the images on that gallery has thousands of views, I get too many comments for me to keep up with- People tell me how inspiring the works are all the time.

This is just something I'm too busy to keep up with, and yet it is incredibly successful and deeply encouraging in its own way.

Publishing Stories
•Someone saw a self-portrait I had online a few years ago and contacted ME about appearing in Painter Magazine. So that was my first experience being published and I didn't seek it out in any way.

•Someone else saw a technical anatomical drawing I had done and inquired about using it on the cover of his book. So that was the second time I was published and AGAIN, the opportunity came to ME.

•Someone else saw one of my True Blood fanart images and asked me if they could use it for an unofficial guide book that they had coming out. That was the biggest publishing opportunity for me- It didn't come through but it was an ego boost when it happened.

Being Contacted by a Director I Admire
This I posted about in the big success stories thread . . . But basically I had a director contact me to tell me that one of my fanart pieces related one of his films was among the best he had seen . . . And he even asked about buying from me. :)




A theme from all of these is to CHILL OUT and ALLOW. In all of my examples, I was pretty detached.

I've done this a lot with writing before I knew what I was doing. I've had a lot of magical writing experiences even before I knew anything about Abe or the LOA. Now, that doesn't mean that I've had external success with everything, but I now know that what I was doing was *allowing* the stories or poems to come. Somehow my desire to create whatever work it was was strong enough that the resistance disappeared. A lot of artists call it "flow." In Abe's vocabulary, we would say it's when we're most aware of Source flowing through us and bathing us in its light.

Hi!
This is so awesome! Blixa b, what wonderful examples.

Starry Kitten, I have had a similar experience with writing:

I was once doing backstory for a play I was writing, and all of a sudden, it felt like the character was speaking through me. She was telling me what happened to her. It felt so REAL--I made it into a poem.  It was an incredible experience of creative channeling.

I recently heard Abe say that once we find the characters, they tell us their story.  And that is what this was like.

I LOVE being an artist, especially writing. I'm creating two new projects now, and I LOVE being in this delicious place of seeing what goes with the story. It's lovely.

Thanks

Wow!  This thread reminds me of the multitude of television scripts and plays I wrote many years ago..... and then there is the book I published 5 1/2 years ago.  

All of it was so incredibly EASY..... like taking your hands off the oars!

I'll pick up a script I wrote years ago and I won't even remember writing it.  The best part is that I'll actually say to myself, "This is really good."

Great thread BB!  Love that so many artists are on this forum!

Uuups, what did you do here? Is THAT the story you really want to believe and tell?

(Just playing your mirror, I know how easily this happens).

I´d like to tell the story of my avatar. I painted it 20years ago, when I was in deep dispair and asked the universe to show me, who I REALLY am. And then, all over sudden, I was so inspired to paint. Had no idea what would come... after it was ready, I was crying. It touched me SO deeply. And still I feel so "beeing this", it is just magic. Lifts me up every time.::rainbow It was the gift from my IB to show itself to me.
aniheartaniheartaniheart!!!

I often work in the technic of "intuitiv painting". You just get your brush/pen and colours and paper and wait, what impulse will come. You work without any expactations, somehow "channeling".

In this way you never fail... its relaxing without boundaries, just sheer delight. Of course, I have my "I did it on myself-action-art", too... great, but never as satisfying. :)

Thank-you all so much for your stories. I kept coming here to reply but then I just wanted to read and savor all your experiences once again. And then I just wanted to go think about delicious artistic experiences . . .

Well, one popped up that I wanted to milk!

The Most Beautiful Tattoo Design

My lover and my best friend is away right now and we've been talking online and he'll watch me on webcam. Well, I signed on a little while ago and he informed me he had designed a tattoo. And he showed me a couple versions and we talked about them a bit.

I envisioned it on him for a split second, but for some reason that didn't seem right and then I was mostly thinking about it being on me.

And so we were talking about it a little more later and I asked him if he would get it put on him and he simply said, "Perhaps." So I told him it was very striking and beautiful-- That I seriously wouldn't mind having it on me.

And then he admitted that he'd actually been thinking about it on my body as he'd designed it.

So it was magical in a subtle way to realize that I had sensed his focus. And then he asked me where I would put it on me and I thought about it a bit then told him. And he had actually been envisioning it on just that spot on me. And that was some not-so-subtle magic between us. ;)

He's not interested in spirituality, let alone Abraham, but he is an incredible, intentional creator. And he really powerfully channels a lot of things through him. It's just remarkable the way he was inspired to create something so beautiful, for me. It's like artistic creation mixed with our connection and it's just, overall, an extraordinary and beautiful co-creation between us.

~•~


There's a Part II to this, my reason for mentioning him watching me on webcam:

So he photoshopped one version of the image on me, very quickly (it looked the best on paper, we had mutually decided.) But a few days later I was inspired to photoshop the second version of it on me, because it would look better for that area placement. I had a lot of fun doing it and he thought it was very beautiful, he liked it very much.

It's such a beautiful design and I love the fact that this man I adore created it. And I love what we can share between us . . . He's had an aloof nature- He's used to being the one chased rather than being the chaser, you know? When we first met, he was after me. And then I was the chaser for awhile and we got into a bad situation. But we've come to both feel equal in our connection since I started having a "spiritual awakening" . . . So it's extra extra extra delicious to have such a deep sharing between us, you know?


It was really refreshing to playfully focus on honoring our connection by doing that skillful envisioning. That kind of creative work is really nourishing. (Something that holds a lot of love, something done for fun and curiosity . . .)

So I shared what I did with him, and he was so in love with it. Hee hee, he really is an intense focuser sometimes. And he's really focused on me getting his tattoo.

Later on we were talking and he was watching on webcam and he suggested I draw on myself. And I asked, "What?" and he said, "the tattoo." So I took a few hours to sketch it out and color it and he watched it evolve on me . . . It was at a difficult place for drawing on yourself, so it took time and innovation and resourcefulness . . . Of course, that made it all the more fun! And, because I was using a pen and markers, it was a very temporary thing.

That was the most PURE creative, artistic experience I've had (so far. ;)) Because there was this intent of it being about the journey and not something final and lasting. And it was playful and challenging. And there was so much love behind it, so much sharing.

He was amazed all along the drawing process at how incredible my rendering skills are, how genuine it looked. He just complimented and complimented and complimented (and he's normally too cool for that.) And he was so in love with how perfect it looked on me. He had me model different clothes to show it off. I took pictures too, for both of us. We were one in our excitement. :)

It was just such an intensely nourishing and love-filled and playful and connective and romantic experience. It set a new standard for me. I reallyreally loved it and will be milking it for days and days to come . . . Because I don't think I should settle for anything less vibrationally when I'm painting or drawing illustrations.

It's kind of a manifestation having been fulfilled in itself. I was desiring to remember what passion felt like, to have a guiding light. And this is such a fresh memory that I can keep alive. And, of course, it means a lot already that I'm in a place where I allowed this experience in. I believe in passion. I know it, I know it, I know it. :)

I believe I'll naturally allow more and more of it back in . . . Not just back in- I believe I've got greater things lined up than I've ever known. Incredible, incredible, incredible things.


I've had some contrast regarding my artistic process this year. But that just means I've created something really big. And I've experienced tons of negative emotion regarding this, but that's only because I've created so much POSITIVE emotion. I mean, my Inner Being has been having an ARTISTIC BLAST. And right now I'm starting to get whiffs of it and just this taste is so mind-blowing. It's so big I'll have more than enough to stimulate me as I ease into it. I'm actually really grateful I'm not just diving into what I've created because that would be too much to be comfortable. Instead, I realize I really do want just this exciting, passionate, and joyous yet easy, natural, and flowing pace . . . Until I want more. Right now though, I feel and know that I'm exactly where I want to be. On my path, enjoying the ride. :)

much love,

As I think about it, I can see this whole experience as driftwood in some ways and manifestation in others . . .

It's Driftwood Because:
-I'm reaching for passion with my illustration work.
-He and I have talked of creating something together someday, and this is a light way of seeing our artistic dynamics- Knowing we can have positive playful experiences (I want to make something with him someday, but I've felt a little nervous because I did try to do some projects with him before I was more in control of my vibration and he came across as critical. People describe him like that, he describes himself like that sometimes, I saw it in him . . . But now I'm realizing I can pull something different. *I* get to choose what that kind of co-creation with him would be like for me. :) )
-I feel us growing toward greater and greater things.

It's Manifestation Because:
-I wanted more creative events that felt natural and flowing and passionate that I could milk . . . I realized that this was one during the process, so I milked it then and I've been milking it since. :)
-I want to love my body more, and drawing on it like that was a nice loving experience.
-I've been wanting the feeling of creative accomplishment and I got to experience it completing the professional-level photoshop job and the actual drawing of it on my body. (Also in focusing more on him since I was kind of "putting off" our connection a couple days before.)
-A little while ago he was talking about a girl he finds attractive and called her intuitive and that caused a desire for him to see that in me (I was more "logic" and thinking oriented when I met him. Since then, I've changed dramatically and I guess there's a desire for him to see that?) So with me reading his intentions of the design, I got to loudly share that part of me with him . . . He didn't remark on it, but I feel good about it. I guess I more wanted to feel/express it than have it acknowledged. (If he can't see it, then he should work on his intuition. ;))
-I have wanted more compliments. I guess it's more, "I wanted reflections of my growing ability to love and value myself." I've wanted to see him give more compliments too, because I just want to see him happier and happier, like I'm happier and happier. :)
-It contains evidence of us having grown to greater and greater things. ;)

Whoo, Blixa, goosebumps!
I enjoyed reading this in many many ways.
Think, your process is great.
Think about this idea- so different, so extraordinary...
I think about the side-effects for you and your guy and you and your body and your dreams all around creating at all/ with him/with- and on- yourself... wow!

SO INSPIRING. Your words, this mix of emotions and telling what is and telling what will be- was GREAT, too.

Thank you!! :exactly:
