Awakening the Power within
By John Kavanagh
Inside each one of ticks the echo of a cosmic clock. As our wheels turn, they create a momentum with which we keep pace with the universe, anchored securely in the here and now, we can function. Today, we are realising a need for something more than the ‘safe’ physical world, of schedule, regularity and similarity. We are, as a community, yearing for a focus, a mandala, an inspiration to activate something else. ‘We are spiritual beings having a human experience’
I believe that through line, shape and colour our spirit rises and falls, our job is to connect within ourselves and understand our cycles of energy and creativity, getting inspired, finding a passion!
‘Awakening’ is how we realise and release our personal creative energy… the lines of this inner power flow as we activate and awaken, bursting into colours and shapes. There are 8 new paintings in the collection and are now on show in this inspirational restaurant. The focus is on becoming aware of ourselves as individuals, nourishing or body and mind and connecting with a community, where we find supprt inspiration and joy.
As a child I remembered how I loved creating, drawing and writing. These creative skills, however, had become memories to me as I grew up. The death of my Mother left me hollow and I believe after taking to others who have experienced a great loss, that a part of me had shut down – unexpressed. I became busy, burying myself in mindless activity, I became caught up in a day to day, week to week wheel of routine. I gradually felt this monotony becoming oppressive. I had become unfocused, uninspired and closed.
Looking back, the past eight years have been an emotional journey for me – not all of it conscious or visible, most of my feelings had been subconscious and shadowed. I now realise that I had let myself become spiritually undernourished, wrapped in a stagnant energy that needed clearing. I slowly become aware of my need to become more creative once again and to consciously facilitate an unblocking.
Through conscious caretaking I started awakening to myself, to an ever lightening energy. Through daily practice of meditating, focusing, eating well, nurturing the body, mind and spirit, and being creative I began to see a raft of positive changes. Opening up was the release I needed. I realise that by being creative, and supporting each other emotionally, by meeting, talking and through conscious activity we draw strength from each other, we become a creative community. Community helps us grow.
I have started observing, painting, and being creative in my everyday life. I am allowing myself to become more present in the day to day than I had been for so many years before. I have begun to identify the patterns and have started to focus on being more positive, open and expressive in my energy. This exhibition reflects an opening up.
Our spiritual technology is active, we are awakening.
