The release

Ideas are most welcome when they appear unannounced. When that creative idea makes a visit I pay attention, because if I ignore the visitor, it will taunt and haunt me all day.

This quick little illustration came about when I participated in the Deepak/Oprah 21 day guided meditation challenge. As I meditated on releasing negativity, an image appeared and stuck with me. I did my best to portray my version of letting go. Holding on to stuff internally, whether anger, negativity, old wounds will keep us chained, hold us back from from a vibrant healthy life.

Open up, let it out and be light.

  4. This is really cool, Jennifer, I wasn’t blogging at the height of busy season, but I love this image and I bet it was really helpful, just creating this (rather than just visualizing it). Well done!

    • Thank you Laura. I have been MIA from WP for a little while. So I do like to play catch up with my fav bloggers when I make the time.. Always a pleasure to see what you have been up to creatively, and also when you stop by.

  5. So very clever and creative, from the heart
