Raise Your Vibe & Enhance Space with ART
Practical DIY Space Enhancement, Raise Your Vibration with ART
Beauty is healing because it feeds the soul. The soul in turn feeds the body, helping us to stay healthy while keeping our spirits high and lighting our best path forward. True beauty is a quality of energy that allows us to trust the deeper waves of life as they meet us wherever we are. Holding us spaciously without judgment, we're prompted onward. In my opinion, these are the main purposes of Art. Art and its creation provide an excellent medium for reflecting the very best of our personal and collective humanity to us. Because it involves grounding the mystical the results bring us face to face with our essence, the truth of who we are, and why we're here. It creates a stronger connection self so that when a crisis arrives, we're stable.
Imagine a world where cultivating these qualities is a priority. Some cultures, ancient and contemporary, recognize this and live by it because, well, life depends upon it. Next to being out in nature, our personal space, home-and-haven, is the closest thing we have to create that kind of world for ourselves and families. Sacred space is all we've got, there's not much else to hang onto. With this in mind, we should take steps to ensure that our home and workspace support us in meaningful ways.
Clearing and raising our vibration is a real thing. We're naturally wired for it. The energy of truth and beauty is always nearby because it's inside us. An intangible thing, it can be sensed, felt, and known through our clear and unblemished interior. It's the frequency and energetic code of light that's behind everything we see and don't see, and it sets the template for all that is.
Truth and beauty unbind us from anything that is unlike love. It creates boundless space for us to stretch out in. "The Truth Shall Set You Free" is often not what we think. It's the space we inhabit when we're not stuck in a time-bound mind. These days and into the future we must have clear sanctuary. And what we keep in our environment can assist powerfully to that end. Don't let what's in your home or office space detract from your wellbeing and clarity of mind.
The big secret is— even if you're not particularly creative in the artistic sense, you create with the 'mind' of things in your environment all the time. You can choose what supports you.
At the time of this writing June 2020, when self-quarantine is still a thing, there's never been a better time to start noticing how you feel when you look around at what's in your personal space. Sense into it. Furniture, artwork, photos, books, papers, things that were gifted to you, pillows, clothing, not to mention what we put our attention on through social media and TV. All of it carries a history and imprint that we unconsciously take in, and those energies can affect us in ways that we would not choose if we were more aware. So, my suggestion is to be more intentional about it.
Refresh, redecorate, beautify your space. Start with positive intention, and add artwork that makes your heart sing. Words like uplifted, bright, clear, inspired, safe, centered, good, and happy should come to mind. Original artwork carries the most potent version of an artwork's energy. If you've never purchased original artwork, now is the time to do so. Inquire with my office about available artwork and explore the possibility of owning original Leslie Montana art.
You may also consider giclee and/or poster prints. Giclee prints are high-quality fine-art reproductions. They're the closest thing to original works of art. When printed on canvas, they're often indistinguishable from the originals. Choose from a variety of sizes and create exciting drama with a large contemporary treatment or a stacked-block of smaller prints. The sky's the limit when it comes to creating an amazing interior design-scape. Reference "Architectural Digest" magazine for ideas or get in touch with me and my team. I work with several interior designers who can help take your project to the next level.
When you want a quick inexpensive fix, posters are another great way to go. My paintings “Ocean of Love, Sunset Rose” and "Ruby Chard Two" are available as posters and a great way to brighten your decor. Frame them up in beautiful off-the-shelf picture frames to match your decor. They're made to fit standard sizes so you'll find many beautiful options to choose from online or in your area. Instant gratification.
Whether you're DIY'ing or not, choose colors that make you feel good if your re-painting or freshening up a room. Remember neutral is the safest way to go. You can repaint a single wall or some trim with an accent color to tie it all together. If you feel creative consider picking up a color from your new artwork. You can also get some fabric, pillows, or decorative objects that work well with the scene you're creating.
Pay attention to how you feel and keep a journal of your experience as you add to your setting. Let it evolve. Does it change at different times of the day? How does lighting make a difference for you? What are your favorite things about the new space that make it better than it was? Keep building your stage-set and take your time. The process should be fun and provide you with something you enjoy for a long time to come.
