Connect With Your Spirit Guides Through Art For Health & Wellness

My Heart is WholeI love to paint and when my friend Elizabeth Fritz invited me to connect with my Spirit Guides through the Soul Art Process I immediately said yes.

I have worked with many guides in many ways over the years but have never experienced anything like this before.  The Soul Art process is a technique that connects the individual to their subconscious self for wisdom and guidance. The beauty of this process is that you need no artistic skills whatsoever to have an enlightening experience.

My Soul Art journey was incredibly revealing to me.  What came forth onto the canvas wasn’t what I expected at all.  I came into the day wanting to heal some health issues I had been struggling with lately.  As you can see by the image above I painted a big heart.  The message from my painting is this:  the key to healing my health issues is to heal my broken heart.  I had spent the past two years recovering from the ending of an important relationship and my health suffered from the grief.

Elizabeth brought me through a series of exercises that freed my mind enough to allow creative guidance through.  The brilliance of the Soul Art Process is that it gets you out of your own way with such gentleness that you don’t even realize it is happening.

I have my painting hanging in my bedroom.  Every time I look at it I am reminded to tend to my heart.  I went through this process over two months ago.  Since that time my health has improved to such a state that I feel stronger and healthier than I have in many years.  I recently went to the doctor for a physical and I got all the tests they’d let me have.  I wanted scientific proof that what I was feeling about my health was real.  Other than a slightly high cholesterol level I am in excellent health.

This playshop is a great way to pair metaphysics with what you may already be doing physically to improve your health and overall wellness.  I hope you can join Elizabeth and me on March 10th for this special playshop.   Click here to find out more and to register.

Falling In Love Again

Della's Meditatin MatSince my boyfriend and I broke up a year ago my self-esteem has been in the crapper.  Unconsciously I had decided my worth was based on whether or not he loved me.  Yes, I know this doesn’t make much sense and many people wiser than myself would tell me not to think this way.  Yet, I believe this is a very human condition.  We eartlhy creatures are constantly looking to others to tell us we are o.k.

This past week I went back for a visit to the city where he and I spent so much of our time together.  Every where I went I could feel him in the memories that we shared.  I realized that it wasn’t him that I was missing but the feeling of being in love.  When I was in love with him I felt beautiful, sexy and wanted.  I think that is the reason that it was so hard to let the relationship go.  I simply didn’t want to give up those powerful feelings.

During my stay in the Cities my friend Elizabeth Fritz, who is a Soul Art Facilitator, brought me through a process that helped me find myself again.  The journey we took that day with art and meditation made me realize that the most important relationship I have is the one to myself.

The image that you see above is part of the painting that I made during the Soul Art process.  The eye is my eye,  looking at me with the eyes of love.  It is a reminder that it’s time to fall in love with me again.   And, that my worth can not be determined by someone else’s actions or opinions of me.

Mat from behind 2This painting is actually a meditation mat.  I use it every day during my yoga and meditation practice.  It reminds me that I am my own beloved.  In the image below you can see that there is a crown in the upper left hand corner.  That is so I remember that I am a noble woman and to carry myself as such.  My name Della means noble.

The image on the right represents all the many spiritual paths I have been on that have always led me back to center.

My take away from this journey is that the greatest gift to Self is Self Love.  And, the surest way to lose my way, is by expecting another to validate me.  I am on the road to falling in love again. . . and its with me.

Check out the playshop Elizabeth and I will be offering in June.  You too can make your own mediation mat through the process of yoga and soul art.

Painting & Poetry

To be completely honest, its been rough lately.  I have gotten to another layer of grief around the ending of my romantic relationship.  We were in the denial stage for the past few weeks and tried on the “lets stay friends” roles.  Nothing changed.  Of course, it didn’t.  We needed these past few weeks to realize that just because two people love and even like each other it doesn’t mean they are meant to be together.  That is what is so hard about this ending.  Neither one of us are assholes.  It would be so much easier if we were.  This has been the hardest ending I’ve ever had because of that reason.  There is nothing to be angry at him for.  I mean, I could find things if I really wanted to, and I have tried, but its not very honest in the long run.

I was talking to a friend last night and telling her how lost I am now.  I’ve always known who I wanted to be when I grow up.  The past 20 some years I’ve even lived some of that dream.  Now, I just don’t know. . . So, today, I did what I do when I just don’t know.  I wrote a poem and I painted.  The poem came from a place of deep sorrow and I wanted the painting to reflect the same.  That’s the beautiful thing about painting.  It becomes its own thing.  Painting comes from the heart and soul and knows more than the mind.  The wisdom of the painting tells me from deep grief a new life is formed, if we choose it.  I hope to have the courage to do so.

Soul Colors Portrait: River of Compassion

painting by Della McGee
painting by Della McGee

Deep within you runs a river of compassion.  On each side of your river are experiences yet to unfold.  One sides holds challenges that are yet to be reveal themselves.  The other holds the promise of peace and prosperity.  Notice that even the challenges contain the light.  It is through compassion that you can navigate the waters of challenge with ease.  Never forget that life is meant to be experienced through duality – both light and dark reside on each bank of your river.  Compassion is the key to balance both sides of your experience.

Heaven’s Plea

My friend Michelle Kaye is a beautiful musician and composer.  She recently gifted me with one of the pieces of music she created called Heaven’s Plea.  This piece of music was created during the time she was living and healing from cancer.

I asked her if I could paint her something while listening to her music and she agreed.  This is the result.

Soul Colors Portrait: Creative Spirit

painting by Della McGee
painting by Della McGee

You will notice two symbols within your painting.  One is the cross and the other the spiral.  The cross is letting you know that you are at a cross roads in your life right now.  You are done being a child and it is time to step into your power as woman.  The spiral represents the path to power.  How you find your personal power is by going into the center of your being and listening to your intuition.  The flower in this painting is your intuition.  It is blooming, letting you know that it is always “open” for you.  

You have a lot of creative energy that desires to be expressed.  You have many different outlets to choose from whether that be the arts, music or gardening.  Creative expression will always be a healthy outlet for you if you allow it to be so.  Write, paint, act or simply howl at the moon.  Let that creativity be your guide to a balanced life.

Gentle Spirit

Sumya
painting by Della McGee

Gentle Spirit your soul calls your name.  Gentleness is your strength.  Sweetness, joy.  Love and Compassion are your hallmarks.  Peace is your breath.  Look deeply into your soul and call forth your deepest longings.  The truth is within you.  Look into your eyes and “see” your authentic being.  Remember this:  no one can tell you who you are.  You are the architect of your life.  Through love and compassion you will be guided.  Fear will block you if you give it power.  Remember, to find your way . . . breathe.

Queen Of The Fairies

Scan 24
painting by Della McGee

When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see?  Do you see your majesty?  Do you see your grace?  Do you see your power?  Do you see a leader?  These are all qualities you have dwelling within you.  You can see the image in your portrait has her wings spread wide open.  She does this to embrace all of life.  You may notice that even though she is feminine she also has masculine qualities as well.  You will need this balance of masculine (active) and feminine (receptive) to fully step into your power.  Do not be afraid to be assertive with your dreams.  The queen’s face has an expression that could be misconstrued as aggression.  Sometime we need to “put on our game face” to push ourselves to our destiny.  If only to convince ourselves that we have the strength to carry on.

Soul Portrait: Creative Spirit

Shannon A. McGeeI painted this portrait for my niece for her high school graduation present.  The painting came easy yet I was unable to complete a reading for her.  I came to understand that she was to find meaning within the portrait for herself.  I do know it is about her creative journey.  She is an incredible artist and singer.  I can not wait to watch her journey unfold . . .
