Day 3 – Not resisting monkey brain

Day 3 daily ritualHappiest of Thanksgivings to all my art loving friends!

I’m actually enjoying this new routine of the alarm going off at 4:50am every morning.  Knowing that I’m getting up to do art feels amazing.  Like I’ve got my priorities in complete harmony with my highest good.

However, at 1:30am THIS morning I woke with “monkey brain”, thinking of a million and one new art projects, Thanksgiving, family, and the list goes on and on! So after tossing and turning for a couple hours, I finally stopped resisting and started my art day just a tad earlier than 5am.  Was actually meditating by 3:30am – way too early, but then again….

Working under the belief that everything is always as it should be, I turned this slightly negative belief into – I got just the “right” amount of sleep, whether its 3 hours or 8. No resistance, right??!@  Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in a nap somewhere between entertaining my family for the holiday.

For the past 4 hours, I have been having so much fun continuing the painting project I began yesterday in Kelly Rae Roberts‘ Spirit Wings on-course. Here is what I’ve created so far.  Kelly 1Kelly 1Doesn’t look like much yet, but I’m so stoked for all the cool new techniques I have already learned.  Part of why I couldn’t sleep – kept pondering how I could apply what I’m learning to what I already do.  This is inspiring me to create a new collage for my Heart’s Desire series.

Its now 7:50am, and although tired, I’m full of inspired, on purpose energy!  Robert and I will be having dinner at two different friends homes in our neighborhood, one at 4pm and the other at 6pm.  Eating only 1/2 a dinner at each home will be quite the challenge!
