First Friday Art March – October!

An Interactive Public Art Experience – Friday, October 3

Magic Passion Love Vision for Humanity

 I believe all humans desire the same thing in in life.  
 From union workers in Savannah, GA, Tallahassee school children, church ladies of Beaumont, Tx to the Radical Fairies of New Orleans.
All people, INCLUDING YOU, desire a place to call home, good food/water to nourish their bodies, a living wage and a sense of purpose.   
 All are worthy. 
I believe we came to Earth to experience Human Love … both a a receiver and giver.  
I believe there is enough of everything for all of us to relax and enjoy.  
as you know, I believe in Magic Passion Love!   And I want to know …
What is your Magic ?   What is your Passion?   What do you LOVE?
These are just some of the questions, I am going to ask at the one night only interactive art experience :
Magic Passion Love – a vision for humanity.   The Manifesting Mobile is going to be on displayed at the Gallery at Foundry Coffee Pub on Habersham and Anderson in Savannah, GA.  It’s part of the First Friday Art March.  www.artmarchsavannah.com
The full manifesting mobile consists of over 400 circles made of recycled paper.  The circles are cut to the size of a CD out of of  recycled boxes.  The circles are strung to create a strand of circles, then they are hung to form a line. Rows of strands with the circles are hung on fishing wire that is strung up across the room.  
Walking through the mobile and reading what other people’s visions are … how do your visions similar – what are action are you taking to create your vision are some of the questions Joanne poses to the viewer.  She also encourages the viewer to participate.
 You will have an opportunity to  share your wishes, dreams, intentions and/or visions for yourself or the world using art materials.
What happens when you invite people to share their Magic Passion Love Vision for Humanity – you meet more people who are committed to living from the heart.  Friday night’s event will be casting positive vibrations from all of the people who are willing to be a part of the heart-centered community.   There will be raffle prizes, opportunities to take inspired action with locate community groups and tasty treats from local chefs and businesses.

 Collaboration is key to human evolution!!!  

 

who I am & why I make art…

Creating art helps me be a conscious human.

Here are questions that I ask myself whenever I begin to get a little out of balance:  Does what I am doing right now make me feel good being me? If not – What would make me feel good being me ?   Why am I doing things that don’t make me feel good being me?   What am I going to do right now to move me in the direction of feeling good being me? How will my feeling good serve others?

I do my best to share my Best Self Every Day in Every Way.

I realize more and more how important it is to live from your heart – no more lying – no more pretending – no more not being nice to myself or others.   It can be scary – however, it’s scarier to see what happens when you don’t!

When you’re not living from your heart – it affects the ENTIRE PLANET!  We are all one.

Many unanswered questions often stall our abilities to pursue our dreams.

2012-04-16 20.19.14

I’m not always sure what the answers or solutions to many of

our current challenges both collectively and individually.

I discovered that anything is possible if I am willing to take action.

I’m willing, ready, and able to take action – are you?!

Inspired Action + Conscious Intention = Dreams Manifested!

My intention is to work with others to share our skills and talents to create a thriving heart-centered communities.

I collaborate with others who see the value in honoring Mother Earth and all the creatures who call it home.

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!!

what you seek is seeking you!

(I blogged this at the FCW Society site and wanted to share here as well!)

As some of you might know, I (Joanne Morton) am currently traveling with my art project, calling it the MPL-USA Art Tour. The last seven months have been the most transformational I’ve experienced in years! These changes because I am allowing myself to be guided by intuition/spirit 100%!! Before this year, I believe I allowed myself to be guided just enough – however there is something happening on our planet and I can feel it! So I have stopped “RESISTING” the urge “NOT” to follow my Intuition and REALLY SEEING WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN I COMPLETELY TRUST IN MYSELF!!

Giving myself to permission to work through this resistance has been a challenge however, because of trusting in receiving exactly what I need the last two days I have received some pretty powerful messages from 2 FCW!!

The first lesson: TRUST!! There is so much unknown in my life right now (actually there always is!!) and I am (like so many of you) working on creating financial abundance with my art. I believe this is possible for anyone!

Except there are some moments when you start to question lots of things!! This is what I received in my “trickydameatgmail.com” INBOX.

“If I cannot trust myself,
above all else – then why
should others be willing to
put their trust in me?”

~ by Eleesha,
Author of The Soul Whisperer
Secrets & Inspirations!

How profound is this?! Eleesha has published a book of inspired affirmations/texts that have come to her … and she’s sharing them. WOW!

If I wish to attract people who trust in the “ideas of Magic Passion Love” then … I must trust them myself! What do you trust in yourself?!

THEN… if that wasn’t enough – there was another random email that I opened up.
(This is why I sign up for various emails – you just never know when you might read something you need to see — and you can always delete without reading. No one knows but you!! We create our own way of living!)

I saw this SUBJECT:
Want an Attraction Breakthrough in your Business?

YES!!!

Then… I began to read:

Life has been a bit of a roller-coaster the past week or so. Looking back I see I energetically took on the FEAR of our culture due to the economic times. Though I know FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real, I was still emotionally susceptible to it. What it came down to was trying to please a not-so-perfect customer and ultimately failing. This really put me in a tailspin (see article below)

Luckily I have some processes that help me to focus in the direction of what I want, and not wallow too much in the pain of negativity. Then I start attracting the exact right people to help me move forward and come out the other side stronger and more attractive to what I desire.

I browsed down the whole email and saw this:

Are you ready for branding that truly reflects your deepest essence and attracts perfect customers? Contact Julia to receive your complimentary branding assessment at (707) 823-3316

So I called! Left a message, which felt really good. Its so important to take ACTION when feeling Stuck! (duh!!)

And Julia called back 15 minutes later!!! WOW!!

Julia D. Stege, MFA, Intuitive Branding Artist, Strategic Attraction Coach TM
Magical Marketer & FCW Society Member is someone to any FCW entrepreneur can turn to when looking for answers how to create the world of your dream!! Her mission is to empower people to create the world of our dreams. That to her is the ultimate creative project. Pretty FUCKING COOL!!

We had an amazing conversation — which is why I love FCW – we instantly connect and share positive energy. She shared with me some insights on my website, introduce me to another FCW artist to check out and gave me some positive feedback. THANK YOU!! It was just enough to get me moving … and release more of the resistance. “Ask yourself a different question” is one of the great insights I got from Julia.

AND I am signed up for her upcoming Tele-seminar!

“3 Keys to Creating a Client Attraction Breakthrough in the New Economy, Just by Being Yourself.”

http://www.graphicgirlz.com/teleconference.html

Its November 19, 3pm est and it sounds pretty great!

SO … the next time you feel the inspired urge to open up an email … you just never know how a FCW will inspire you to continue to be the Fucking Cool Woman YOU ARE!

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 ….
