A New Beginning - Setting Intentions

Starting this blog symbolizes a new beginning for me.   A new life, leaving the world of corporate education behind, to embark on a creative journey.  Being creative, doesn't come naturally to me... I have to work at it!  But what I have learned is that when my mind is creating, when I am playing with color and change, I am at peace.  Sharing my journey and encouraging you  to find and play in your own creative corner, place of peace and enlightenment, I know will bring great pleasure.  So to start my very first blog (really, I have no idea what I am doing) I want to set forth to the universe my own intention.

Deepok Chopra says,  "An INTENTION is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create.  Like real seeds, intentions can't grow if you hold on to them.  Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness may they flourish."  

So sing to the world what you intend to create for yourself!  Let it be known, release it and live it!  I, Cara Lockwood, intend to manifest my inner light and creative spirit to blanket my life, and all that surround me with beauty.  I intend to seek beauty, finding it in all things and sharing it with my universe.

WHAT THE HECK DO I MEAN BY THAT???!!!.....  Well, I want to make things beautiful by creating.  Whether it's painting, building, crafting, drawing... I want to create beauty based on my own ideas of beauty.  I also, want to appreciate the simple beauties that gather around us each day.  Whether it's beautifully aged wood, new blooms on a tree, or the one good eye my dog, Shamus, has looking at me for approval... it's all beautiful to me!

Join me as I share beauty through my lens... maybe our ideas are similar, maybe very different, but I am sure we can all find beauty in everything that surrounds us!
