This is a photo I use often in my work. It reminds me of me as a child. Well, the dark hair and size of the child does. The freedom, enjoyment and security I perceive from the picture not so much.
But I am drawn to it over and over.
This is the journal spread I did last week.
Remember this image happened by "accident"
This is the journal spread I did this week.
This does not happen all the time, but it has happened enough that I pay attention. I have in the past added elements to a page with no particular reason in mind, to come back to them later and see meaning in them. Sometimes I can hear God's whispers of love to me through the images and words. Okay, not audibly, but in my heart and spirit. Maybe impressed upon me is a better phrase.
These speak to me of freedom to continue on the road of openness,
being free to sing,
being secure and loved,
daring to live joyfully!
Even the word "releasing" above has "sing" in it.
Does this happen to anyone else??? I would love to hear your stories. I really think a lot of seeing, and healing comes from our journal pages. Well it comes from God, through the pages.
(about the first photo - I found it somewhere on the internet but cannot remember where. If you recognize it as your work and would prefer me to remove it please let me know. I have only used in in my personal journal pages.)
