Quotes

And the veil gets thinner.

I love this time of year and not just because the leaves shine in an array of gorgeous color. Number one reason is I love ghosts, spooky things that go bump in the night  and whispers you hear in the air. This is the time of year when the veil between our realities gets thinner. You catch a glimpse of a shadow in the corner of your eye and tell yourself it was nothing. Maybe you hear someone talking low and barely audible only to say it must be coming from outside or next door but of course some reason certainly not a spirit or ghost. This is a common occurrence in my world and I have come to accept it as normal. I think you would call that being an Intuit but it is just being a bit more sensitive to energy around you.  I also have great respect for the things I cannot see and never play around with spirit games such as séance and Ouija  boards. I accept their presence it is real. I think of these spirits as guides ancestors and angels and they are here to aid and help us. It is only when you open the portals and gates to dark negative energies that negative spirit enters. Unfortunately it is not a game and the negative energy can now hang out and play. I wonder if you know how many spirits and guides are with you at this moment? You may be surprised.

Complaining is complaining, and it disallows improvement.

“Most people do not realize that as they continue to find things to complain about, they disallow their own physical well-being. Many do not realize that before they were complaining about an aching body or a chronic disease, they were complaining about many other things first. It does not matter if the object of your complaint is about someone you are angry with, behavior in others that you believe is wrong, or something wrong with your own physical body. Complaining is complaining, and it disallows improvement.” Esther Hicks

Think about how your body feels when you complain. Constricted, tight, achy, low energy, heavy, a general feeling of malaise and now think of how your body feels when you stop and focus on what you like in your life. Maybe it is your mate,partner,child, pet, job, you and see how you feel. Are you open, loving, happy, joyful, adventurous, playful, a feeling of contentment and satisfaction? When you are feeling this everything in your life is right. So why do we all insist on focusing so much time and energy complaining about what is wrong? I have not a clue and I bet you would agree. So now stop complaining and start feeling good about life and about you.

Today I wanted to share with you a little watercolor that makes me feel good. I hope it makes you feel good too.

Do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live

“Don’t listen to those who say ‘you’re taking too big a chance.’ Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most important, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says ‘they’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections.” I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts—and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live—the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respects.”

Neil Simon

Nature Art woodland landscape rendering of autumn leaves is a watercolor original paintings on paper by Laurie Rohner.

A watercolor painting of bright maple leaves in orange and reds takes me to a memory of an autumn day in Vermont. I was blessed with a beautiful view and could sit in a comfy chair one day and take in the vibrant energy of nature. Enjoying it with the best person I knew was even better. Nature seemed to have a lot to say that day. Not to stop and listen would have been an offensive move on my part.  I was given so much that day that now years later I still feel the energy of that miraculous day.

Always dream and shoot higher.

Etsy, Laurie Rohner, passion, Quotes, Thoughts are energy

An insight the size of a mustard seed is powerful enough.

“We often hesitate to follow our intuition out of fear. Most usually, we are afraid of the changes in our own life that our actions will bring. Intuitive guidance, however, is all about change. It is energetic data ripe with the potential to influence the rest of the world. To fear change but to crave intuitive clarity is like fearing the cold, dark night while pouring water on the fire that lights your cave. An insight the size of a mustard seed is powerful enough to bring down a mountain-sized illusion that may be holding our lives together. Truth strikes without mercy. We fear our intuitions because we fear the transformational power within our revelations.”

Caroline Myss

Uneasiness, apprehension, fear is rampant in my world. I stopped today and asked myself why? Is it the perception others have or is it one I believe? I think if everyone would stop and listen to what the world is saying we would all have a great laugh. I think it is one big lie and I am not participating in the lie anymore. So what does that mean? Following the heart and not the head, knowing I have the best intentions for the best deserving joyful life. I see the mustard seed and the illusion is dissolving disappearing as I write.

What I am starting is working with art. Watercolors on cards for only $10. This is my mustard seed. Painting original art on cards with pencil watercolor and ink and shipping them off to you at no charge in the USA. I am not printing them or offering wholesale prices. I am offering one of a kind nature art. Owls and crows or flowers to landscapes that or magical or mystical and you can order a card to suit the occasion. Takes about a day or two to paint one up. The petite watercolor illustrated paintings are sized to fit a 5″ x 7″ matte opening, come with an envelope and are blank inside. Nice for giving to someone as hostess thank yous or teachers. Check them out at Between The Weeds Etsy Shop for now. I plan to have them in the studio too.

I combined drawing with pencil with watercolor and then with ink.

I like crows and a little fact most people do not know but the crow is the third smartest animal to date. They are capable of figuring out which tool to use for the appropriate job or task before them. They have an extensive language and they keep our neighborhoods clean from road kill. Nice work crows.
