Sometimes life needs more balancing. It does not always happen like we plan – it even tends to happen always different from what we planned.
From time to time we need to step back.

I needed to step back. Balance. Wait. Still need. Nothing bad happened. I just missed the change in season of life and wanted to get done more than was possible. Sometimes its a child facing challenges and needing her Mama more then planned.

Sometimes I need to step back.

So I did. And I do.
And open to what comes.

Life has become fast. Sometimes we need to slow down to see the treasures. Did I say sometimes?

Collecting ideas, collection visions and then come back throwing fairy dust and making magic happen.

And as ever: making art, envisioning and connecting to my soul through making art. Meditating and enjoying life. My favorites. It´s not by chance that this is always an important part of my service and offers: soulart, joy and meditations. My favorites, that work together with all the other wonderful tools and techniques, that wait to be accessed.

Balancing. Slowing down. All this relates perfectly to pregnancy. Feel your center.

This is post part of the Weekend Reflection at ArtTherapista

    I feel the same! My head is buzzing with ideas, and I want to create everything at once. I need to calm down and let things come in their own time. Great post!

    Great to see your post again Nora!
    Thanks for sharing the wisdom – I have been working on the hard side lately, need to breathe more, slow down and allow more.

    Sending you love

    Oh it so goes against all we are taught doesn’t it? To wait and slow down can feel so hard but you are so right, it’s the only way to see the treasures. Loving the artwork!

      Yes, Samantha. So true – it´s always hard to allow to slow down
