Angelic Connections

This time last Saturday my day spent as a student at a spiritual/psychic art workshop was coming to a close.  Hosted by Rosalind Coleman, a professional artist, Reiki Healer and Life Coach, Rosalind ’s work is dedicated to helping you develop your spiritual awareness and abilities and  connect/communicate with your spirit guides, guardians and angels  through art.
After the introductions, Ros took us through our first guided meditation, from this we were encouraged  to pick up our pastels and begin drawing, being guided to whatever colours we were drawn to. Ros says that in her opinion "all art that is created whilst in a state of joy, contentment, bliss, grace, etc. is spiritual. The artist Jackson Pollock would spend a fortnight staring at a canvas in deep thought, then he would quickly, in a highly focused trance state, create a painting in a short space of time.

Art has no rules unless the artist has specifically chosen to use them as part of the artwork. Spiritual art may look mature or portray a childlike naivety. Be produced very quickly; with precision or tentatively, as if exploring, or something else. Be laid own thickly and heavily, gently or sensitively.Appear crude and tribal or look fine and elegant. Change - starting out as one thing and transforming on the page to something else. Feel as though you are observing the picture being creating without your having a great deal of input, feel as if you are completely lost in the process of the picture’s creation.  "

Here is my first picture, drawn with my left hand (I'm right handed), I felt urged just to put colour down onto the paper, I felt myself getting quite frustrated as I felt confined by the smallness of the paper. I realised these feelings were not my own but belonged to the energy that was working with me, it felt large and powerful.

For our second picture, we were asked to link specifically to the angelic realm, again, drawn with my left hand this is what emerged.  I felt drawn to specific colours and had no idea what was going to emerge out of it and I also felt quite tearful (in a nice kind of way)

For our third exercise, we were asked to link into our partners, this is what emerged, drawn with my right hand this time.

This felt very tribal/shamanic to me and at first I got the sense I was drawing a bird but then it changed into something quite different! - a bit Scary Mary!

There's me at the bottom left hand side in blue
