This is it. I am following the thread of my dreams all the way to paradise! I am taking a stand for my own creativity and for healing. It is time for a new adventure and so I am doing something that I have never done before. Many of my beautiful paintings are ready to spread their wings and fly to a new home. They will arrive with an abundance of healing energy and blessings! I am slashing prices by more than 40% and to make it even juicier, a portion of the proceeds from this sale, is going to CORAL REEF Alliance. All my art is created with sacred intention and infused with the intention to heal myself and to be an energetic icon of healing for the person who feels called to bring a particular piece of art home. Part of following my dream and my heart, includes giving back to one of the beings I love most in this world, our Great Mother Ocean. Yes I think of her as a great, beautiful, powerful, generous, fluid, radiant being, a life force energy, that deserves our greatest love and care. That is why I am choosing to give back to her through this art sale.

It’s true. I am moving. Following my heart west to the island paradise of Maui. Land of enchantment, beauty and healing. We bought a new home now named “the Palace of the Palms”. When I was there in May, celebrating my 60th birthday, I FELT the miracles that blessed me in every moment. It was like a home coming.
As I release, let go and discard so much “stuff” from the last 26 years, I have been reflecting upon what it takes to follow my dreams. It’s not always smooth sailing. I just came from a mastermind women’s circle and we were in deep inquiry about what it means to be “in the flow” vs. “forcing”. I also recently listened to a wonderful webinar where the conversation was about “goals” vs. “intention”. For me it is important to know my intention and have clarity about my “destination” (destination not having the meaning of a particular place but knowing where I want to be energetically in my life). I know that my intention is to live the rest of my life in resonance with my soul and to step fully into my creative power. I don’t know if that means I will be in Maui full time or not. There is an element of mystery in the divine unfolding that I want to embrace and ALLOW for.
It may feel safer to follow a series of steps and to delude myself that I know all the answers to what’s next. When I do that (and I certainly have in my lifetime), I have learned that I am closing off possibilities and moving out of alignment with the co-creative force of the Universe. When I am in the “flow” it feels different. My actions are focused and yet, at the same time, I am surrendered to what wants to happen. I am still sustaining my practices of self-care. My energy is open in a different way than when I am “forcing my will” upon what is next. I am in a dance with the Universe. There is a sweet spot in between effort and surrender that I learned about from the ocean and the way that jellyfish swim. More to come on that in my next blog post.
I am curious to know, what are your thoughts, feelings, intuition on what it takes to follow your dreams? I would love to hear from you. What does it feel like when you are “in the flow”? When you are not, how do you get back into alignment? Does “being in the flow” support you in creating your dreams and your dream life? Share in the comments below.

Price originally $2950. Now being offered at $1700.
24″ X 30″
A powerful icon of transformation, strength, love and light created by visionary artist Elizabeth Gibbons, to honor all the women of the world, who choose to live their lives as “warriors of the light” and healers.
Read her story;
Holding Up the Light
She may be mother, daughter, caretaker, counselor, healer, artist, lover, business entrepreneur, housekeeper, property manager, bill payer, cowgirl, priestess, shaman and chauffer. On any given day she contributes love, light and healing to her community and to the world. She changes “hats” numerous times and occasionally there really is no time to “change” so she just wears two or three or even four all at once. She tries to take “one day at a time” but more and more it seems that the world keeps throwing a whole bunch of days at her all at once. She understands that all beings are connected and that when one suffers, we all suffer.
Most days she is able to embrace her role as “warrior of the light” and she loves the busy abundance of her life but occasionally she is tormented with a saturnine melancholy and then she feels afloat in an out of control sea where the water is rising. She is on the brink of drowning in the deep darkness of this mysterious ocean called life.
She has no choice but to raise her arms high, holding up the light. That light is pure love, bestowed freely. And in that moment of grace the water is no longer rising. Now she is rising from the sea, proud, defiant and eternally transformed. She has found the secret to eternal life. The waters have been turned back and “death” has been conquered by the “light of love”.
