I stumbled on Katherine Center's blog and website. Her post was titled "body poems: $1". All about people who could get painted with a body poem when they have something they need to tell themselves. (You can check it out here.)
I really love this concept. I'm one of those people who has about a million 'body poem' type messages running through my head each day. I've just never considered writing them on my person! I do write them into my paintings (love that), and write them all over my journal.
I've recently picked up a book called The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It's a simple book with a big message about finding one's purpose in life. There's a lovely bit about discovering what you want, and the universe conspiring in helping you to achieve it. I love this because I'm certain this has been going on in my own life, from a very early age. I learned, when I was very young, to listen to my heart, follow my dreams, and pay attention to the different omens and guidance from above. Have you been lucky enough to know your life's destiny? Perhaps you feel like there's more to this world than you're receiving. Well, pick up a copy of The Alchemist and get yourself back on the right track! In the meantime, I thought I'd share a few of my body poems with you.
Journeying towards courage
goddess of Hope
Heart wide Open
her Fearless dreams are coming True
Patient heart Hopeful spirit
journey of faith
Queen of Obstinance
then, here's my favorite:
wrapped in Love
Pretty soon, I'm going to do it, I'm going to paint the body poems on my person. In the meantime, they will continue to appear in my paintings. Got one on the table now, just waiting for it's creation. Jot me a note and let me know what your body poems are, or better yet, shoot me a photo so I can see them embellished in paint :o)
