Yoga and the artist- Lion’s Breath

Standard

This morning’s pose/Pranayama (yes, it is a combo deal!) was empowering and fun. I like sticking my tongue out and pouring my breath out like a lion. I am a Leo girl so this pose/Pranayama was right up my alley. Thank you Yoga With Adriene!

This is what I’m working on now in my Sunroom Studio. This is a page process in my art journal all about meditation….

 

After I finish my Artist’s Way Morning Pages, I read something inspiring and lately that has been the remarkable book The Law of Divine Compensation by Marianne Williamson. As an artist and a freelancer (writer and publicist) it is a challenge to survive financially from one month to the other. Honestly, at the end of the day when I get everyone fed, I say a simple prayer of gratitude. “Thank you Jesus that you gave me the ability to feed everyone today and keep a roof over my head and keep a floor beneath our feet.” I’m a big prayer. I pray constantly. I flip a switch and the light comes on, I say Thank You. I run a bath of nice warm water and that’s a Thank You moment too. Everything, and I do mean everything, is essentially a Thank You moment.

So Marianne’s book is particularly helpful to me as daily financial life is a huge challenge. It’s risky to be a freelancer. But I have been in freelance land for so long, I accept the challenges as well as the ginormous blessings that come with being able to use my creativity to make a living.

It’s part of my job to create pitches for my clients. I create radio pitches for airplay, pitches to send to venues the artist would like to play, pitches to magazines to write stories about my clients. Today, Marianne talked about a friend who was a clever screen writer but who shook in her shoes when she tried to pitch a project.

“Her mind could formulate a pitch, but only her spirit could be inspired and inspire others. In summation, there are Four Rules for Miraculous Work Creation
Be Positive
Send Love..
Have Fun
Kick Ass
Amen
– Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation

I have difficulty with the have fun part of this equation, but I am determined to try harder. I like the Kick Ass, Amen part though.

Wishing all of you a happy, positive, loving, fun and kick ass evening!
