Emotional hygiene, image-making edition

wouldn't it be nice

I'm so grateful image-making is the perfect evening activity! I'm so grateful Kelly and I just had this awesome discussion about evening activities to get in the vortex. Working on our business or exercising are usually what do it during the daytime, but that shit seems a little too... active. We need activities to chill out, unwind, and relax. But they still have to be stimulating and interesting and engaging. So I'm just now realizing that if I put away the work after dinner, and do something like read a book, do some image-making in Photoshop, or doodle in my sketchbook, my creative faculties are still involved, but don't have to adhere to any guidelines or care about what people think. All day responding to comments and emails means I can slip into caring about what someone else thinks. That's the last thing I want to do, ever, so at night it's nice to just turn off the option. Get rid of the option of communication until I know I am solidly in the vortex, and will remain so until I fall asleep. Google Reader teeters on that edge...

Anyway, I am infinitely grateful that I really listened to myself just now and decided to open Photoshop to do some image-making. I do it entirely intuitively, so there is no planning. There is no pressure. Only the flow of creativity between my higher self and me. Between me and Jessica.

I'm so grateful I keep my Wacom tablet out so I can use it whenever I need it, and not have to dig it out of a drawer. [...] I'm so grateful I just spent the last two hours working on this image and chilling with Kelly.

Tonight I intend to bask myself to sleep. Today I intend to congratulate myself on all the levels I went through today. I intend to congratulate myself on an awesome four mile run. I intend to congratulate myself on our magickfood.com menu progress. I intend to feel really, really good. I intend to remember all the beautiful parts of the day, like waking up early and driving on the highway with a perfect view of the forest. Tonight I intend to continue thinking of my life as a video game. Tonight I intend to power down, pause, recharge my batteries for tomorrow. Tonight I intend to go into the alternate levels in my dreams. Tonight I intend to enjoy my dreams. Tonight I intend to remember my dreams. Tonight I intend to go to sleep in the vortex. Tomorrow I intend to wake up in the vortex.

Wouldn't it be nice to sleep deeply and fully and dreamily until 6am? Wouldn't it be nice to start Lesson 7 in the morning? Wouldn't it be nice to keep the flow going? Wouldn't it be nice to play a ton of new levels tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to have the best day ever again tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to continue focusing? Wouldn't it be nice to continue being in the vortex where the ideas are? Wouldn't it be nice to take a bike ride to Whole Foods? Wouldn't it be nice to make magick pellets tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to start getting ready for the weekend? Wouldn't it be nice to wake up feeling my absolute best? Wouldn't it be nice to be filled with natural energy? Wouldn't it be nice to put my eyelashes on tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to keep riding the fourth dimension?

I love this chill night. I love being in control of my vibration. I love creating my reality. I love relaxing at home. I love imagemaking. I love doing these posts at night. I love maintaining my vibration all day so I feel like doing these posts at night. I love that I was so engrossed in Photoshop that I didn't think about anything else. I love that when I started to not enjoy it, I stopped. I love that that gave me some extra momentum, to let go. I love letting go. I love momentum. I love the idea of staying on top of the wave all the time. I love our salad. I love running. I love my life. I love Jessica. I love this sensory experience. I love documenting the vortex.

    this image is awesome! i love your image-making! it was so meditative for me to just space out watching you and think about feelings that make me feel good. just for the sake of feeling good. totally vortexin’ it and your awesome image was a reflection of that. it feels good to know that i am what that image makes me feel: interested, content, happy, respect, intrigued, loved.

    thank you! it’s so meditative for me to just let my eyes glaze over a bit and allow the images to come to me… endlessly trying new colors and blending layers… just to see what feels right. i want to practice more!

    i love that the image reflected back to you what you were feeling! of course it did!!!
