post christmas thoughts

I don’t know about you but I find myself reflecting on the past year and how much has changed… and then switching thoughts to the new year. 2011 is going to be an interesting year – I can feel already so many things shifting and changing — and its my choice to navigate the direction!! I am choosing the direction that makes me feel good!
I’m keeping my thoughts in a place of right now … as well as the Bigger Picture. The interesting thing is when I do this — the Bigger Picture is part of my Right Now…which means its actually happening so all I need to do is keep enjoying it and living it to make it keep happening.

My choice to completely change my life has been the best decision I’ve done in a really long time — its giving me new ways to see how I can feel good being me 24/7. This has been the intention for the last 10 years – how can I feel good being me 24/7.

If I Allow my Magic, Feel my Passion, Live my Love in the Present Moment while having Faith in the Bigger Picture, all I need to do is Relax & Enjoy and life manifests all that I need. WOW… I encourage everyone to find their own MPL to AFL to create their own WOW!

This next week is our time to truly appreciate all that we’ve accomplished this year to prepare for new opportunities in 2011!

Manifesting Mist Works!

This morning when I woke up and looked around the Dragonfly Studio – my first thought was, “MANIFESTING MIST Works!”. Look at all that I have Manifested in my life this past year! I know its not just the Manifesting Mist that is allowing me to be living my ideal life – its a combination of a lot of other tools that I have been consistently using this past year.

This past week on the Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse, I felt a shift — right through my entire physical body … this shift was ACCEPTANCE! Sometimes I am so busy visualizing everything that I want to manifest that I forget to Accept some of what I have! Look what I have right now — an amazing space to be creative in! A space that I am co-creating with other like-minded spiritual artists! A space where we can invite our friends to come over for a cup of tea!

We are ending a year that has seen lots of changes and transformations — for me, I am in a completely new state – physically & figuratively! I am accepting my intention as a reality – I am a full time, professional artist! I am excited to see how my life grows & transforms this winter — preparing myself for yet another Transformational Year – 2011 – is going to be My Best Year Yet!

I know this to be true because I am keeping my Priorities clear, writing Gratitude, sharing positive energy, thinking good thoughts, feeling everything, practicing daily, staying active, eating healthy, surrounding myself with great people, and loving myself as much as I possibly can — forgiving myself as well!

All of my best wishes to you who is reading this — because 2011 will be your best year yet too!

Shift in the flow sometimes happen

Its always important to take stock in what feels good when you are embarking on a plan … which is what I did in the month of November. I traveled to Tampa to visit with one of my friends to share time & energy with her. While I was there, I spent a lot of time outside … allowing myself to understand what is important to me RIGHT NOW!!

Traveling to places to meet others and make the Mass Manifesting Mobile is definitely something I want to do however, I would rather do this with a traveling partner. I know it is important for me to be alone sometimes but being around people who are my friends is more important. So when the offer to come back to Tybee Island to help open up Dragonfly Studios and be the artist in residence, I knew this is why I found Tybee in the first place.

Changing your mind can sometimes feel like you are following through a commitment you made to yourself — but instead of beating yourself up and telling yourself you are a failure, loser, unable to commit — REMIND yourself that you are following your INTUITION that is being guided by your SOUL which is the REASON we are here!! I have run away from things in the past because of fear of commitment and fear of failure and fear of getting hurt — hell, I could write zillions of pages about this BUT we all know that this is “old stories” and we are about THE NEW STORIES! And the NEW STORY is I am living on Tybee Island, getting to know the city of Savannah and working in my art studio!

WOW!

Its been almost a month since I’ve come back to Tybee Island, a place I never even knew existed a year ago. I believe that this is part of the Transformational Shift that is happening right now – I’ve allowed myself to be taken completely into the UNKNOWN so I can learn more about Patience, Trust, and Magic Passion Love!!

I have no idea how my life will unfold in the new year and it really doesn’t matter because I am allowing – feeling – living my life the best way I can right now – offering myself much peace & understanding … and Courage to keep growing as the Spiritual Being that is Joanne Morton.

Please come by and visit me at the Dragonfly Studios – you’ll feel really good if you do! and so will I!!

a traveling artist journey so far…

The MPL-USA Art Tour Google Map!!!


I began in Atlanta … then spent the summer on Tybee Island and in October I headed north to get the mini-van and immediately headed south. Along the way….as the leaves were changing …
I have seen sunsets on lakes and in the mountains. I have shared Magic Passion Love in cities with over 8 million people as well as sharing positive energy with almost 500 people population! I have been on the road with truckers, campers, mini-vans and bikes — I have slept in beds, on couches, and massage tables! I have shopped in Walmarts and local shops. I’ve been invited for some amazing meals. I’ve had plans and I’ve been spontaneous. I am completely open to what’s to come …I am completely open to where I’m being led…I am completely OK with where I am.

All that I physically own is in my mini-van.
All that I spiritually own is also in that mini-van.
There is only so much ROOM!!
I’m only carrying what feels right —
The thoughts/feelings that are coming to me
Create so many questions about this journey.
Is it because of all of the traveling I’m doing?
Is it because of this transformational shift that I’m doing?
I am finding it easier to release what doesn’t make me feel good
As the mile marker passes so do my limiting beliefs.

I ask my readers the questions I find myself asking… – “How much do you want to carry in your life?!” “Do I have the time to stop for the unexpected adventure?” “Why am I doing this?!” I have the feeling these questions are being asked by lots of humans … and I am pretty sure I’m not supposed to know the answers….yet another thing I’m learning as I travel.

I’m grateful for this opportunity to figure out exactly what I know and what I don’t know.
Because I feel just fine.

More to come later ….

I love my life

I love my life!!

I am not holding anything back in this moment, right now because I am feeling really good and I love my life!

I don’t always “like” my life … and when I have moments of feeling low energy … I want to be able to remember how good I feel right now because I LOVE MY LIFE!!

To be able to say this – sing this – dance this – feel this is exactly what I have been manifesting for years!!! I want to feel good being me 24/7 and its actually what happens most of the time.

I guess this is what “living in the vortex”, “being connected with your source energy”, “using your intuition in all areas of your life”, “forgiving yourself”, “having gratitude”, “accepting your humanness”, “allowing your Magic”, “feeling your Passion”, “living your Love” will do to your relationship with your reality.

And … I’m not afraid to say out loud, “I love my life!” because I love when others love their life!! There is enough love for all of us to enjoy!!

Its all about LOVE … it really is!!

Living with the Suspense…

For those who are reading this blog for the first time, thanks! I’m a traveling artist who is embarking on an interactive art journey!! I’m sharing Magic Passion Love … keep reading or read previous posts to find out more about MPL – its in you!! For those who have been following for awhile – thank you for your ongoing support!!

This blog post has been on my mind for at least over a week – having lots of guilt for not writing, fear for what to write and forgiveness for having self doubt. Its Sunday, October 24 and I’m at my friend’s home near the Poconos in PA. I’m sitting here looking out the window with a view that is so SPECTACULAR! The leaves are at their autumn best and the lake just glistens with the sun. AND the temperature is perfect!!! I’m so thrilled to be able to experience the part about the Fall that makes me “feel good” — with out have to also prepare myself for what will be next – WINTER!

This is another opportunity for me to stay in the PRESENT MOMENT! Its so important to enjoy/experience what is happening right now so you don’t miss what life has to offer you — knowing the future is coming and being prepared for what is to come is important. However, putting too much attention to what is “not known” completely takes away so much joy from the right now…. this is what I’m learning on the MPL-USA Art Tour!

I understand that my ability to live with more suspense in my life is actually giving me more options. When you have options – perhaps you feel more free to be yourself?! Now, I’m just babbling because this is what I do when I write which makes me nervous about blogging. How much do I need/want to share while I’m on the MPL-USA Art Tour?! I found an amazing sanctuary on Tybee Island to be more connected with my spirit – then my parents helped me manifest a vehicle to actually travel – and now I have a mini-van! Since leaving Tybee I’ve visited people in North Carolina, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania and will be in Virginia on October 30.

That’s pretty amazing when I read it on the computer screen. It goes to show you when you write your accomplishments in life, no matter how small or big – you will see that we actually do accomplish exactly what we are thinking. Having the past week at the country, first with a friend, then by myself, then with my parents, sister and friends back to being alone — I have had a lot of time to understand exactly what I am creating.

I am creating my life that allows me to feel good being me 24/7! This is what my intention was when I first began my spiritual quest in July 2001 — I was TIRED of not feeling good!!! Now that I feel good being me, I am TIRED of others not feeling good — not feeling like they have the right to feel good – feeling afraid to feel good – not knowing how to feel good — feeling guilty for feeling good — we all have the RIGHT & RESPONSIBILITY TO FEEL GOOD right now!! This is why there is a Transformational Shift — the shift is giving us an opportunity to share ideas about Universal Energy — and we all know what happens when you share MAGIC PASSION LOVE energy —

WOW!!

I invite you to Allow Your Magic — Feel Your Passion — Live Your Love as much as you can …
your life will feel better!! … and so will mine!

thank you… I am very grateful to co-create more positive energy with YOU!

Outside New York City …

I’m sitting in a friend’s kitchen and from one window, I can see my new mini-van that I got from my parents (thank you!) and from the other window, I can see Interstate 80! The road that will take me back to NEW YORK CITY!! I’m not sure why there is a delay in driving into the city … I’m really excited to be back and see my friends.

Is it because of the TASK at hand today!!??? I’m going to go to my mini-storage and see what STUFF is in there. I am considering letting the mini-storage go and put all of my stuff in the mini-van. Will I be ok with less stuff?? I’ve been away from MY STUFF for 6mths and there has only been a few things that I’ve missed, My Art Supplies, A couple of books, and that’s about it… I’m really curious to know what I put in those boxes last February. My head was in such a different place as is my spirit!!

As I see the sun start to shine more – its been a cloudy morning, I am taking this as a sign that there is light ahead on my journey. I am not afraid of what’s to come because I know I can handle anything! I am merely curious and excited because if what has happened is any indication of what is coming to me – I am so thrilled to be living life as I am right now.

I am living in the moment as best I can on a moment to moment basis. Listening to my thoughts and calming myself down when I begin to go to old ways of thinking – these thoughts no longer serve me!! I do not need to rush rush rush — everything will be accomplished in a steady and enjoyable pace. I learned this when I had the huge task of emptying my apartment – I did it! I learned this when I arrived on Tybee Island and begn to look for work – I found it! I learned this when I started on the road yesterday to head towards NYC – each hour, I was several miles closer to my destination. Every moment I live are opportunities to learn – Every moment I enjoy are magical!

When I go back to NYC in about an hour – I know I will be experiencing it a little differently as I am changed. For I have the knowledge about how important it is to ALLOW MY MAGIC – FEEL MY PASSION – LIVE MY LOVE. I’m excited to continue to share this others. I have no clue what I’m doing or how its going to get done – I just know that I’m having a party on Monday, October 18 in NYC, will be in Philadelphia, Sunday October 24, and Lexington, VA on Saturday, October 30. Every thing else in between is a mystery waiting to be discovered — let’s see what happens!!

Another week on Tybee Island…

I had planned to travel into Savannah for the MPL-USA Art Tour this next week however, plans sometimes change.

A part of me was half expecting this as the person I was going to stay with has been having some challenges. When I see other people experiencing challenging times, I want to be able to help them, offer them some advice however, as we all know, ultimately we are responsible for our own lives. We make our own choices and have to realize that there are consequences to every action. Which is why I encourage positive actions because that creates positive outcome!! AND … we can’t solve other people’s problems…all we can offer them is support & understanding as well as suggest that they get “Professional help”! I am not a life coach – counselor, I am an intuitive energy worker & artist — I can offer insight how to find ways to feel balanced but if there is someone in your life who is going through challenges, remember the best thing you can do is live your life as an example of how its done!!!

Which is what I am doing on a daily basis!! Now that I’m going to be on Tybee for another week, I will have more time to focus on the planning of the MPL-USA Art Tour!! I have started to get some ideas of where I will be traveling after I leave NYC on October 18. First stop will be Philadelphia … then Lexington, VA, Ashville, NC, Charlotte, NC, Columbia, SC …. and the list grows. As I begin to plan the tour and do the research, I’m finding myself feeling URGENCY to get the plans settled! Find the money that is going to pay for this! Know who might be traveling with me! Figure out where I’ll be staying … so many unknowns are presenting themselves to me and a part of me wants the answers now!!

This is part of the lessons I’m learning — its ok not knowing. Take the action that you can. Trust in the process of life. Be kind. Be honest. Be grateful. Which I am.

I’m being very conscious of the thoughts that are coming into my head and gently releasing them after I acknowledge them. I am not interested in feeling “crazy busy” or “crazy stressed” and it is such a choice to feel this way!! This is where living on an island with the ocean as your best friend does come in handy 🙂

However, I only have until the end of September to enjoy the beaches of Tybee and when I leave, I will have the memory of the ocean to keep me calm. I will also have the tools I’ve learned over the years to stay balanced. We must always remember that we don’t need to do things alone… when you are feeling stressed, under pressure, scared – REACH OUT AND ASK FOR HELP!! There are people to help others … and its the best thing to you can do for yourself. That’s one of the reasons humans exist – to help one another 🙂

HELLO EVERYONE!!

So we are at the mid-point of July and for anyone who is feeling the effects of some of the transformational energy shifts that are occurring, You are NOT ALONE! We knew this was going to be a transformational summer and we are ready for it! So many of us have been doing the personal work on ourselves that I want to remind you that you’re exactly where you need to be!! YEAH for YOU!!

Everything that is happening is for OUR HIGHEST GOOD and all we need to do is relax & enjoy our lives! Continue to take action that feels good and focus on the feelings that are most aligned to our spirit. Ask for support and guidance from your spirit guides as well as your friends/family that are your “true fans”. Let go of what doesn’t feel good — and you know what that is!

I have a feeling we’re going to be talking about this JULY FORECAST FROM POWER PATH – its been very forth coming in my life … read it and for yourself -click the link! Here is the first paragraph —

The main theme for July is CRISIS-OPPORTUNITY. This may seem like a complete paradox however the influences of the times are creating an intensity that will bring about crises that present opportunities for major, sudden and complete change. “CRISIS” is defined as a “decisive or crucial moment”. “OPPORTUNITY” is defined as “a chance for advancement”, (in this case a chance to advance to a higher level of consciousness).

ANOTHER TOPIC of DISCUSSION will be

According to Mayan calendar and its scholars, we are now at an important pivotal point in the world–a time to affirm, acknowledge and visualize our Unity Consciousness. How do you see this change point? What are you doing to co-create Unity?

Scary or Exciting – let’s wait and see!!

These past few weeks, I’ve been feeling a LOT and I recognize that I’m more excited than fearful. Even when it comes to finding a job to create financial abundance – the feelings I’m experiencing are more “what is it going to be” rather than “it will not happen” … I trust that the right job will be offered to me at the right time.

I also know that it is completely possible for me to earn money as a full time artist — all I need to do is continue to take all of the action I can take for this to happen.

AND some of the action is to WAIT!

When I used to take the bus in NYC – I would often say, the important part about taking the bus is BEING OK WITH THE WAIT! The bus is going to come – it may be late however, there is a bus running and it will appear when it does and I will get to my destination. I am using this thought right now — I made a video today so I could release out loud – MY NEED TO KNOW!!

I know it will happen — I don’t need to know when, how, where, or what … because I know WHY it will happen! Things will happen because All of my needs are ALWAYS taken care of! and this has been true since I made the decision to let go of my apartment and leave NYC. TRUST TRUST TRUST!!

And let go of the old limiting habits of wanting to worry & stress! this does no one any good!!

Seriously — relax & enjoy!!

so today this is the plan — to relax & enjoy!!

Sharing a great DAILY OM I received today — to remind me of what’s exciting in my life!!

Translating Our Feelings
Are You Excited Or Scared?

Often times when trying something new, we feel scared when in actuality we may be excited. Reframe your thoughts.

When new challenges and opportunities show up in our lives, we may
diagnose ourselves as feeling scared when what we really feel is
excited. Often we have not been taught how to welcome the thrill of a
new opportunity, and so we opt to back off, indulging our anxiety
instead of awakening our courage. One way to inspire ourselves to
embrace the opportunities that come our way is to look more deeply into
our feelings and see that butterflies in our stomach or a rapidly
beating heart are not necessarily a sign that we are afraid. Those very
same feelings can be translated as excitement, curiosity, passion, and
even love.

There is nothing wrong with being afraid as long as we do not let it
stop us from doing the things that excite us. Most of us assume that
brave people are fearless, but the truth is that they are simply more
comfortable with fear because they face it on a regular basis. The more
we do this, the more we feel excitement in the face of challenges
rather than anxiety. The more we cultivate our ability to move forward
instead of backing off, the more we trust ourselves to be able to
handle the new opportunity, whether it’s a new job, an exciting move,
or a relationship. When we feel our fear, we can remind ourselves that
maybe we are actually just excited. We can assure ourselves that this
opportunity has come our way because we are meant to take it.

Framing things just a little differently can dramatically shift our
mental state from one of resistance to one of openness. We can practice
this new way of seeing things by saying aloud: I am really excited
about this job interview. I am really looking forward to going on a
date with this amazing person. I am excited to have the opportunity to
do something I have never done before. As we do this, we will feel our
energy shift from fear, which paralyzes, to excitement, which empowers
us to direct all that energy in the service of moving forward, growing,
and learning.
