Co-Creation

Our capacity to Co-Create is often used as a means of manipulation: ‘we create our own reality’ is flung about as a very unhelpful label on our struggles to comprehend where we end and the collective begins. It’s even used as a means to suppress our Feeling that something is very wrong – and that we actually have Immense Power in affecting positive change!

‘podcast’ (Living Voice Sharing) on Co-Creation

Hallo Beautiful Friend – welcome to my podcast today 🙂

Here, I’m speaking to how these times are Gifting us THE most beautifully lucid revealing of exactly how we are Co-Creating e v e r y t h i n g that is going on right now.

Our Co-Creative capacity is complex yes, but at the same time it is also infinitely simple – because our alchemical mastery of The Art Of Life is all about Flow, Ease, Harmony. The Way is simply The Way, and what Is Right is All-Ways Right. So once we get closer and closer to Core and Source, The Right Way is more and more crystal clear – and the wrong way sticks out like a very visible thing that is sticking out!

Join me for another online Living Painting Session on Friday 1st October, at 1600 hours, Rome, Italy time. See this post for more info. A direct link to the session is here.

Blessings to you in your Sovereign Everymoment,

:Clare

Immunity, Sovereignty and The Living Boundary that Authorises us to Be In Harmony with All Things

boundary….

Many labels that we have for ‘aspects’ of Our Self, Our Nature, and Our Experience in Life – are significant distractions from our moving always into our Potential.

Like ‘boundary’ – one of the many concepts that bring us into tense, effortful relationship with all things: we have a physical idea of a hard separation, and we focus our energy towards a preconceived ‘task’ of building something rigid, through force, to protect us…

Here are some Genuinely Alternative, Panoramic Views on what Real Boundary is; a Living, Interbeing of Vibrant, Whole Spirit-Full Life – finding Co-Creative Relationship with Every Thing we come into contact with.

Blessings on Your Day!

Harvesting Women’s Energy

Beautiful Friend!

Here’s a big topic that I’m becoming increasingly passionate about unveiling and calling in Awareness around: my work has been centred on womb and deep feminine energies for a long time; our individual healing to Profound Wholeness and Harmony – and the capacity that this wakes up, for us to then ripple into the Collective.

It’s not that we’re not all having our energy harvested, BUT women’s energies in particular, by their wholistic and interconnected, sentient and cyclical, changing Nature-rooted-in-Bliss – we have been more comprehensively manipulated.

We’ve been more comprehensively manipulated, because in order to convince humanity that we are NOT mystical, immensely Powerful Co-Creators in a Divine Universe, there has to be a very extensive, effortful, tricksy oppression of Women first and foremost. If Women are enslaved, the rest follows.

Living Voice Sharing on Harvesting Women’s Energy

You may also hear this podcast via Anchor.fm

If Women are convinced to contract instead of expanding orgasmically, to relate to thier bodies through fear and torture, to default to external compartmentalised ‘logic’ and ‘regulation’ rather than KNOWING THE BOUNTIFUL TRUTH OF HER VERY OWN BODY-MIND-SPIRIT… If Women are kept apart and confused, and clinging to their exposed condition of just-getting-by-on-crumbs… It’s relatively straightforward to harvest and profit from her unconsciously throwing her distracted attention, sweat equity, adoration and ‘authority’ anywhere but where it should be being channelled!

In this Living Voice Sharing, I’m speaking to some of my own experiences of questioning ‘authority’, and in particular, the false model of modern ‘philosophical’ ‘spirituality’ coming from the male, white ‘guru’ claiming to be working on the horizontal/ embracing the more ‘feminine’ ways of thinking and feeling… when in fact they’re using precisely the same conventional model – of hierarchy, distance, untouchability and unaccountability, which ultimately means an abusive harvesting of particularly feminine attention and energy.

There are innumerable new ways of thinking around how we remedy our current world situation and how we might collectively create a more beautiful world. In my holistic worldview, there are some that are embodied and genuinely for the benefit/ betterment/ improved health, wealth and prosperity of All (including All non-human life!) – but there are many also, which are leading us vastly astray from Knowing Our True Nature. The latter are masquerading as ‘solution’ when in fact – in hard, provable Fact – they are keeping folks in a state of passivity and separation, and frankly conspiring alongside the agenda to profit from keeping folks in the dark about their Real Power And Responsibility.

NEW BOOK OF MY ART

Here’s the Introduction from my New Book Of Paintings, which you can download by clicking right here:

“Real Art is a living, breathing presence; it has a life, an identity and a vitality all of its own, independent of its creator.”

Real Art also has an immunity to any projections onto it, and it serves to open, expand, and inform the Divine Intelligence Knowing Itself More Fully.

This is a book of photographic images taken from Living Paintings created by :Clare Living Woman, Creator and Visionary Artist. The paintings depicted here are from a body of work spanning several decades: a unique visual language that has evolved through dedicated practise to That Which Wants To Come Into Being. As you can read in the book, there are themes and stories, anecdotes and memories connected to each painting, but this can never definitively label or limit the art.

Due to the Free and Sovereign Nature of both my practise and the Art that I create, my Art is not bound by the compartmentalising or categorising that is so prevalent in the ‘art’ ‘world’. I chose from my earliest consciousness, a path of non-conformity and Freedom, rather than fitting in and submission: I’ve been tied into almost zero work contracts or commitments to regular ‘work’ roles during my WorkLife.

I chose as a young woman to follow Art, because I had crystal clarity in my early teens that it was the sole ‘career’ path (that I could see in my island village view of the world at that time!) in which I would reserve all my Rights and Freedoms. I could already feel the infringement on my Natural Identity, on Truth and on Expansive Learning and Unique Expression, which the ‘education’ system was pushing towards me: I intuitively rebutted this offer to contract and walked my own Sovereign path; thinking, moving, creating and existing In Flow, aligned with all inner and outer elements.

The past few beautiful decades of my Colour-Full Life have included barefoot subsistence in the Mediterranean, deep healing and transformation of Self and Collective in multiple communities, inspiring rather than teaching, effortless earning of Gift, union with Nature, Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine, and myriad other quiet adventures building energy and sharing the abundance of the Freedom that I Know.

My Art is Living, Breathing Truth, and it should be met as such. It is not a static object with a rigid, fixed story and I neither accept nor allow mainstream projections onto my Art. I Reserve and Occupy Fully all my inalienable Rights, e.g. to my Free Expression, to my Biodiverse Indigenous Embodied Consciousness as a Vital Integral Part of Us All As One, and my LifeWork as Truth Unveiler and Visionary Creator.

I’ve had a colour-full Life and Work in several ‘countries’ and ‘cultures’ painting, growing, making and inspiring energetic expansion. My Vibrant ‘non-mainstream’ Existence has led me to be protagonist in multiple projects and adventures, igniting communities, supporting healing, encouraging freedom of Divine Expression – harvesting and building Embodied Awakened Conscious in All That I do and Am, rather than having my Vital Force drained by conventional ‘norms’.

I Live In The Here and Now, and am unbound by the conditioned bonds to slavery that many accept and even defend. This Spontaneous Vibrant Presence-In-Now is Core to my Work and to Our True Identity – that of Spirit-Full Harmonious Alignment in Co-Creation with All Things.

My Art is Gift to the Collective Conscious, and as such is in Sacred Service to our True Well-Being. Thus, my paintings are not ‘for sale’ in the conventional ‘contractual’ sense of the ‘commercial’ and ‘legal’ cold transaction.

My Artwork may be exchanged for a monetary gift, bartered with other items or services that I need, subscribed to/ paid for over time via my Patreon or other gifting platforms, arranged in a mutually-beneficial agreement of some kind that we create together, gifted via crypto currency, gold, silver, etc.

We Should Listen To Women Much More!

Welcome dear friend

This Living Voice Sharing is around the feminine voice; the Truth of Women, the Song of the Womb… the uncorked, revered, respected, heard expression of the female perspective.

Female artists, writers, musicians, birthers, dancers, creators – when our Sacred, Whole Voice is brought into the world, welcomed, made space for – extraordinary magic can unfold.

It’s hard to envisage what we’ve lost over the millennia, throughout patriarchy, and throughout this long era of anti-natural and anti-feminine law-education-religion-politics-economy.

But we’re beginning to get a taste for what a world balanced with the Deep Feminine might be. The transition may even be happening in a straightforward, methodical, gentle and benign manner, as all things timely unfold; we might simply be stopping following false leaders, un-law-full patterns, disharmonious roles.

Already, many Living Women and Living Men are seeking horizontal, cooperative rapport-with-all-things – already great shifts are being made in regards to what we’re willing to tolerate or be coerced into. There’s an effortless movement into creative rather than forced Ways, and I Know that Women’s real experiences of Life are absolutely central to this.

Keep in touch with my Living In The Gift website, contact me here and support my work via Patreon or other links on this site – I live in Gift.

Blessings, Peace, Truth and Love to you,

Is ‘Life Purpose’ An Oxymoron?

Beautiful Friend…

This ‘podcast’ or Living Voice Sharing, is around how our True Lived Meaning is distorted by the concept of our having to ‘find’ our ‘life’ ‘purpose’… The concept of ‘branding’, ‘labelling’ and ‘defining’ our Real Life – on paper, in soundbites, in digital formats.

The Art of Life, instead, is in our Creative Mastery of the depths of complexity and nuance of Living. If We can Comprehend a deeply-Lived Life as inherently Purpose-Full, the ‘purpose’ is not a ‘thing’ having to be proved, dumbed down or over-simplified – it won’t require a label or a categorisation…

Living Voice Sharing on Is ‘Life’ ‘Purpose’ An Oxymoron?

Pulling away the veils of the system and norms that we accept in mainstream, there’s a profound awareness that flows in, which effortlessly carries us to where we can best Be. There’s no pigeon-hole, box, role: we just do all that we are meant to do, with passionate abandon… peace-fully and happily.

This doesn’t meant that we never struggle, but our efforts most certainly are less torturous, more fulfilling.

What Can We Do About All This FEAR?

These are genuinely unprecedented times: we’ve never been in this state of having us all so aware of the same thing at the same time; absorbed in and by it. So what can we do with all the adrenaline, over-stimulation and projection of negative scenarios and emotions that it’s bringing up for so many of us? Rather than it threatening to drown the world, surely there’s another option?

In this podcast I’ll talk about the fear (the psychological and emotional) aspect of this virus, prompted by Sama Morningstar’s brilliant blog on how disproportionate fear can be rooted in unresolved trauma. I’m adding to this discourse, suggesting that we’re all so accustomed to being in a high-tension state of depressed, atrophied ‘reality’ – that doomsday really is a relatively short step from our everyday.

During this lock-down time, we have the perfect container to allow fears to arise and to transform them. As the air clears of smog and our avalanche lifestyles slow to a gentle, rhythmic drip, our tensions can unfold in a way that was never possible when we were in the usual grind.

Naturally, effortlessly, our thoughts and inquiries can finally fully form, and so be let go of. We can begin, collectively, to make more conscious decisions about how we want to do this thing we’re doing on planet earth. Now we’re slowed down sufficiently, we can be more aware, feel more, get in tune with what needs to be done, rather than being in this perpetual hamster wheel, just because everyone else is… We can be aware of other options, perspectives, realities.

In my understanding and embodied wisdom, we have a clear choice right now: Fear or Freedom.

Deep Taproot vs Worldwide-Ticket ‘Freedom’

This podcast came through as a channelled message – from a seed thought about this love-hate struggle I’ve had with trying to become rooted in any one place… The feeling of being torn between long-term stability, and being free to think-be-do what I want, when-how-if I want.

This led me to think: why do we buy into this idea of ‘freedom’ requiring a plane journey and the affluence to book a flight just about anywhere in the world? Supposedly to keep ourselves inspired about life, stimulated and refreshed, far away from our ‘boring’ normal life … But how can this be so ‘good’ for us, when it has such an immense negative impact on the planet?

Inquiring deep into this, and blessed by having had a very small monthly income this past 6 months, which has caused me to stay home more, to think less about travelling afar… It occurs to me that this fable of ‘freedom’ being elsewhere and involving a great deal of money and resources – leaving a huge trail of destruction both behind us and often in the place that we’re visiting – there’s something that wants to be unveiled there.

Why are we conditioned to be so deeply dissatisfied with the place that we are in, that throwing ourselves half-way around the globe is the only remedy for? What would it feel like instead to be deeply rooted and satisfied, fulfilled and blissful, right where we are?

Listen to the podcast, to get some ideas:

How can we become more connected with everything around us, and thus become liberated in our lives – rather than having to seek a parody of freedom by taking an aeroplane to another culture and climate?

Why It Got To Be Canvas?!

a dismantled bread oven in rural Italy, waiting to be turned into art

Painting onto canvas can be an incredibly limiting presumption about our creativity, which we get caught in early on…

Using shop-bought materials for our art, particularly for surfaces is a form of colonisation of our immense creative potential. Myriad, meaningful surfaces are in fact all around us – and often freely available.

When we begin using materials that we find around us, we develop a solid foundation of relationship and depth of story within our work, which can be a missing link, when we use something prefabricated industrially.

Using found materials makes our work more unique, and more specific to our place and time. It might also make our work more relevant, more connected, more interconnected; give it a place in the world different from that of a image painted on a manufactured surface. http://www.claregalloway.com

It’s not about ‘good’ or ‘bad’, ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, but about the effect on the world, on multiple levels, that radiates outwards from our creating and creations. Listen to the podcast, to hear more
