“You are starting out with something of yourself in your creations- there is a moment I think that the work takes on a life of it’s own so to speak- and in some magical way that I can’t explain- it connects with the person looking at it. It goes on to communicate it’s message in its own way to each of us who are open to receiving it, like a living part of the universe.” Scotty
That was a brilliant observation by my friend, Scotty. She is right is that magical point in my work and it happens pretty quickly. I am the most present when I am painting. I am getting closer to that kind of presence in my life but have a ways to go. Visionary art takes a great deal of trust. Someone who doesn’t trust would have a hard time painting the way I do because it is intuitive from beginning to end.
🐬I was psychically connected to a friend in Hawaii when I painted this painting. We had purposely made the connection for a specific time of day. I didn’t know he was watching dolphins jumping in the ocean at the time of our connection. 🐬
I never know what an image means while I am painting either because I am so present. Meaning often doesn’t come until sometime later. Sometimes meaning isn’t important because the painting is speaking from a higher dimension and we understand intuitively like my friend Shakti says here:
“What I like about your art is that the channel that you are to your images is absolutely clear. I would say, “clean”. Your art is deceptively simple, yet refers directly to the world of archetypes and meaning. It is not even necessary to “ decipher” it, we would possibly be engaged with an erroneous interpretation. It is sufficient to go with the spontaneous “I like it”, it stands by itself, the way trees and rocks and sunsets stand by themselves.” Shakti
I am not writing this to brag, but to acknowledge this precious gift that I have. I have been doing visionary art for about 28 years and for most of those years I tended to minimize this talent. It was just something that was easy for me so why make a big deal about it? That wasn’t very honoring of this higher dimensional gift I have been blessed with.
When I first learned what I was doing in my art I was shocked. It actually felt like a huge responsibility so it was easier to minimize it. Read about that here: https://katelynmariahvisionaryartist.weebly.com/reflections.html
My art not only has codes that can activate something new in you but can also decode something you might not have realized about yourself or the world. I realize that’s a rare gift.
We need to start shining a light on the unique gifts we bring to the world and on the magnificent beings that we are. We have to stop holding back for what ever reason.
This shifting, changing world needs the gifts and talents each of us brings with us, as we create a new world. No one is better than the other we are all very important to the process of elevating the planet.
What do you believe are your divine gifts? 🎁✨
