Your Inner Artist is that divine spark of inspiration that flows with the juice of your unique expression. All you need to do to awaken your Inner Artist is create a sacred space for your Inner Artist to come out and play.

Inspired by one of my dear teachers Matt Kahn this confirmation of my work came through:

Your inner child is the gateway to your soul. It’s your most important heart guide and ally who if acknowledged, involved and loved like no one ever has, will open the gates of abundance, creativity, love and joy flooding into your life as it no longer fears your abandonment. So make sure it feels your love in the way you involve it in your daily actions.

Find creative ways to play, love and go on adventures with her/him every day.

Hello dear ones …

I have a real special treat for you… yesterday I talked with my dear SeeStar Lucille DancingWind (mystic, author and the founder of Sacred Earth Connection) about Receiving and Following Guidance.

I felt called to share this (sorta) interview with you all as we cover really interesting questions regarding receiving guidance, trust, confirmation, free will, importance of asking, boundaries and the power of love!!!

Mind the giggles, gaps, image quality and whatnot … this is us in our beginning steps to be more fully seen and so we are figuring things out as we do them…

I hope you will find some real nuggets and inspiration for yourself. Feel free to share if you did and leave us comments below.

Much love,
*AW*

A few weeks ago I channeled this drawing and instantly I felt that it wanted me to receive more information about wisdom of the 3rd or Solar Plexus Chakra. So I am taking this as an opportunity to reflect and share alittle more information about what I gathered about this specific chakra and how we can detect imbalances and find ways to nurture, clear and rebalance this energy center. Any of your own wisdom is very welcome in the comments.

3rd Chakra Wisdom

SOLAR PLEXUS / 3rd Chakra:

Location: The 3rd chakra has 2 energy vortexes located in the solar plexus area in front of the body which is hand width over your navel under the point where our ribs come together (diaphragm) and the other vortex is located just opposite on the backside of the body. Issues: In general the front chakra (that is commonly addressed as the Solar Plexus Chakra) is related to the feelings aspect and the rear chakra related to our will. The general issue of the 3rd chakra relates to our unique place in the universe, our connection to others in the system, our sense of belonging. The rear chakra relates to our relationship, intention towards to our health, our inner system.

“Although the solar plexus chakra is a mental chakra, its healthy functioning is directly related to an individual’s emotional life. This is true because the mind or mental processes serve as regulators of the emotional life. The mental understanding of emotions puts them into a framework of order and acceptably defines reality.”– Barbara Brennan “Hands of Light”

I also resonate with those that point out that the 3rd chakra relates to our personal/ego vs. divine will as it would reflect in the ways we relate to others and feel (or don’t feel) part of the tribe, universe or a greater destiny. Looking at it this way, I can see this chakra as a bridge to the energetic dimension of intention (also known as Hara) and also the 5th layer of the auric field that also related to divine will, trust and surrender (see Barbara Brennan “Hands of Light” for more information about the auric anatomy). And I find it divinely timed that my focus is guided to this particular chakra as I feel right now we are in another powerful galactic shifting wave from an ego controlled to a divinly surrendered perception and creation of reality. And all it takes is to make a choice (intention) and trust the unfolding. The 3rd chakra is also physically located very close to the seat of our core star / essence, our innate being (located between the solar plexus and the navel in a deeper dimension). In order to really embody and shine our essence in the world with more clarity and brightness, the 3rd Chakra functions like a vessel to carry that light out to other (human or not) beings. So if the 3rd chakra is balanced and clear it feels effortless to connect to others. We have the sense of meeting like-minded people and they are attracted to us naturally vs. we have the sense of having to run after people and/or feeling isolated.

Imbalances in the 3rd Chakra may manifest as issues with

  • Trust
  • Fear
  • Judgment
  • Power struggles
  • Depression, Victimization
  • How others receive our essence
  • Boundaries, Co-dependent relationships
  • Addiction
  • Nurturing, Nutrition
  • Self-Care and Self-Love
  • Physical problems in the digestive system
  • Process organs like liver, gall, kidneys, pancreas
  • Personal / Divine will, Authority issues

A person with a balanced 3rd Chakra finds great pleasure knowing one’s unique place in the universe, sHe feels that one’s creative intentions, manifestations and relationships are guided and supported by divine will in divine timing, there is a deep sense of surrender and trust. sHe knows how to nurture one’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs with the best food available. One’s self-care comes from a deep sense of self-respect as an expression of loving attention for one’s inner system that is mirrored in the ability to care for/be responsible for one’s own emotions as well as deal and process issues that arise from mastering relationships with others.

CHANNELED DRAWING GUIDANCE:

Now I was curious what the channeled drawing was guiding me to understand further: Just looking at the color range I understand the importance of nurturing and supporting the 3rd chakra from the 2. and 1. chakras as well. The structure she is lying on or bending over looks to me like a flowing filter system and since it is in orange colors it could refer to the issues in the 2. chakra like creativity and sexuallity which is also supported by the red base (representing the 1st / Base / Root Chakra.) So perhaps it’s a hint to root our creativity/sexuality with trust and safety that comes from healthy and flexible boundaries and establishing a feeling of being comfortable in our bodies. It is easier to surrender and relate to others from that feeling of safety and playful exploration that nurtures our blossoming and sensual opening inside out. The way the woman is bending over reminds me of some core energetics practice to open the front 3rd chakra: bending our back over a message stool or one of those big bouncy elastic balls to release tension held in the body and also connected issues in the energy (emotional, spiritual, mental) system. The chakra itself looks to me like a megaphone with sound coming in or going out. Perhaps sound healing is a good support to balance this chakra right now. (Divinely timed I just received Tom Kenyon’s latest newsletter with a sound healing for the 3rd chakra! Tha!) Also at the end when I was coloring the drawing I saw this being standing behind the chakra and gently embracing or holding it. It felt like a protective energy. Another level of safety and support from our guides or friends that may help us open and relax more with ease in mastering relationships to ourself, others, nature, universe… etc. Looking at this drawing I am reminded that our internal sun really seeks to vibrate along with our galactic and eternal sun. I am curious as our physical sun is so active right now and reversing its magnetic field – how this is influencing our being. Perhaps helping us to manifest the switch from an ego controlled to a more divinely surrendered experience. Well, that is what I am getting from the drawing. How about you? Anything that speaks out to you or catches your eyes and imagination? Love to read your wisdom in the comments below.

Now, how can we creatively nurture your 3rd Chakra Essence?

Here are some creative ideas that come to my mind, feel free to add yours:

  • Look at, use, visualize, paint, eat, dress in yellow color. Here is a collection of yellow images on my Pinterest board: Follow Antonia Wibke Heidelmann’s board 3_yellow on Pinterest.
  • Gentle stretching of the solar plexus area, bending over a elastic ball or so
  • Create something using intuition, improvisation, free flow like Channeled Drawing (watch my free tutorial video here ) or dance like ecstatic dance, soul motion, 5Rhythms – where you are in touch with your soulbody moving & being witnessed in a group
  • Soak up the sun and/or Visualize taking it into your 3rd Chakra and let the sunlight rays emanating from your solar plexus and expanding to other people, nature, the universe
  • Look at the stars at night and feel yourself as a fellow unique star of the universe.

Please share your creations and add your own wisdom and experience how you balance the 3rd Chakra as well as your guidance from looking at the channeled drawing in the comments below and/or post your artistic creations in the Facebook Group here. Of course I am just sharing my own experience and guidance here. I am happy to learn from your experience, knowledge and guidance as well.

Last but not least this video from Matt Kahn came to me at the time of my drawing I like to pass it on to you, perfectly speaking about the shift from ego to divine will. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I decided that “prEssence Fuel” will be the guiding intention for this blog this year.

Anything that helps us connect with our Essence, our inner Light, our core star, our innate Being – that which is unique to you and a direct gift from the divine.

Your essence is your unique creative gift to yourself and when you connect with it, it nurtures you, helps you heal, move through challenges, gives you food for your soul, helps you remember your true divine nature. When you fill yourself from the well within, you are truly free. Your light shines out and inspires, magnetizes more light, love and joy.

Your Essence brings you alive and right in the present moment. That is the most beautiful gift to yourself and to others.

Essence = Presence = Present

When we see others in their essence we feel naturally attracted, inspired, uplifted and activated.

Creativity is one of the most powerful activators and channels for your essence. As I activate and free my own creative prEssence, I love being inspired and inspire others.

So here is an “entree” of this years prEssence menu to sparkle your being from the amazing +Elijah- Ray and the Band of Light.

Playing with sound is so magic! 

More from Elijah:

Bandcamp: http://elijahandthebandoflight.bandcamp.com
SoundLight Sessions: http://bridgetolemuria.com/sound-healing/

What creative gift you have do you like to play with more? 

I am reading a very inspiring book at the moment called “Soulshaping” by Jeff Brown and love to share this quote with you as a New Year’s greeting.

“We are each here as part of the sacred dance, stepping on each others toes and turning each other towards God, one clumsy step after another. Although the ultimate romance is with your own soul, it is our experiences together that give birth to the essential lessons. Every entelechy is a buried treasure, essential to the advancement of the collective soul. If we get off the dance floor, we postpone others lessons too.”

Thank you for the dance and keep exploring new moves dear SeeStars & ProStars!

So honored to be part of Laura Hollick‘s google hang out last week, where a few guests including Amethyst Wyldfire, Laura Reid, Lisa Berkowitz and me shared a little about our activation of our own iconic essence – a term that Laura refers to our core essence that unique set of characteristic soul qualities and artistry that we came here with as a gift to ourselves and the world. Something I am really excited about on my own journey activating my own iconic essence and that of others as well thorugh my creative transformation work.

In this video (recorded live December 2, 2013) I briefly share alittle how I came to develop my channeled drawings… and it is so inspiring to listen to everyone’s activation as well. Truly uplifting.

This channeled Drawing manifested last Thursday November 29, 2013 in my creative intelligence class while people in some parts of the world celebrated ThanksGiving and others celebrate Chanukkah and others like me were following the journey of comet ISON to rendezvous with the sun.

It’s just amazing how events align on one day sometimes. Since I am doing my 30 Days of Gratitude posts I’m even more aware of the magic that unfolds everyday. ThanksGiving is celebrating this journey of gratitude and Channuka also celebrates the miracle of light. How amazing that ISON – a comet – meets with Earth’s light and live giving source on that day. It’s such a beautiful sign and inspiration for me taking the journey again diving into my own creative life force / passion and cosmic essence to nurture myself and others.

I found this amazing quote in a presentation of Alex Grey that summed up my heART’s mission:

“Art is an echo of the creative force that births the galaxies. Creativity is a way that the cosmos evolves and communicates with itself” – Alex Grey

 

Watch Alex Grey’s TED presentation and I hope you are as inspired as I am.

The wonderful Laura Hollick had invited amazing people from around the world on International SoulArt® Day to create their own SoulArt and/or be inspired from all the creations of everyone!!! www.soulartday.com

I was thrilled to share about my creative process with the channeled drawing in our google chat. Inspired by Laura’s question  I realized that is time now for my to apply what I’ve learnt through the channeled drawing to apply to my personal relationships.

 

Unbelievable only 2 years ago I was watching Laura’s inspirational SoulArt TV and was thinking wow how awesome to have a career combining creativity and spirituality and business. Now here I am chatting with my mentor and client about SoulArt and feeling like sitting among sisters of my creative tribe. I am truly honoring myself for how far I have come  committing to my path as a creative spiritual visionary discovering and uniting my gifts and now starting to support others to do the same. WOW.
