Mental Health Mantra 35/365
I sold my Mum and Dad’s car yesterday. I was really happy to sell it to a Care Home Manager. Relieved to see it go to a good home mixed with tearful to see it go.
The sale had been speedy. Not much time for lingering thoughts.
Later in the day, I stepped into colour and water, I could feel the feelings of it all, the memories of them buying the car, the joy of it being automatic, easy to manoeuvre and get in and out of with disabilities. As I stared at the blank space, nothing seemed to be happening but I just sat and let that happen.
I knew it was shades of blue I wanted to be immersed in
et voila .... immersed in petals.
The Affirmantra message coming through was Connect the Petals - a bit like connect the dots.
I learnt a lot from selling the car, looking back I can connect the petals of how I got to that point. Sorry if that’s cryptic.
In painting the petals, methodically in repetition, I found my heart rate soothe, my emotions calm, my mind became still - I fell into this wave like practice that was hypnotic.
Sometimes we just need to Connect the Petals, Petal.
'Art with Heart - Calm your Mind, Soothe your Soul.'
