In my Egyptian stones, there is one that represents creation, Khnum – Creator of Life. For my life I use my art and creativity as therapy, a hobby and for self expression. My art has always been different, unusual and even downright crazy. But the point is to let yourself free through self expression. When I pull the stone Khnum I can see the person needs to use their creative energy.
Sometimes it is in the form of art, but other times that creativity may be used when dealing with the loved ones in our lives. When I pull the stone Khnum, these questions would come to mind. — Do you have a goal or vision you want to create?
What are you doing to get that vision started, are you developing the plan? — Is it time to breathe life into your projects or art? Take a look at your dreams and what is in your heart, pull from that and create. Remember it is important to embrace who you are. It is okay to be different, to let yourself out in what you create. I use decoupage as one of my outlets, I have re-purposed suitcases, decorated tarot card boxes and I love to refurbish mannequins.
When I’m working with my hands it calms me. I am always surprised at the outcome, but each piece is me, what I have in my heart. Which brings me to photography….the time with my camera sooths my angst. It saves my soul, tames my mind and enriches my life.
Sometimes I’m taking photos of the hats or mannequins I have made, other times it is the nature around me. All I know is I have to create I’d love to hear how you create, what is it that makes you feel better? What do you create? Just remember creating can calm you, take you to another realm or it can be an outlet to show what is inside.
It is healthy and in art is beauty, love and life.
