The tiny step that will change your life

Today was a day that really counted.

Not because I have been particularly effective, has made a super effort or achieved a lot.

My reality today was NOT like that. Very, very far from it.

“Nourish your seeds/Giv dine frø næring”, mixed media on canvas, 25 x 30 cm. Price: 1800 DKK

“Nourish your seeds/Giv dine frø næring”, mixed media on canvas, 25 x 30 cm. Price: 1800 DKK

Today was the kind of day where I could not see clearly. For inexplicable reasons I walked around in my own fog and swamp of procrastination all morning. The start of this day felt more like being a spectator to my own life and helplessly watching it slip by without any meaning. I was stuck in a feeling of unclarity, physically weakness and overwhelming uselessness. And as the hours passed, it only got worse.

It was past lunch before I realized how lost I actually was. I still felt discouraged, but now I was at least awake.

And then I finally took a miniature step in OUT of the fog.

HERE, right here was one of those moments that really counts; THE FIRST TINY STEP!

When I had taken that step my mind was a bit clearer. And I was able to rise enough above my own swamp and find space in my mind to ask:

What ingredient do I lack in myself to be able to create anything today and how would I really like to feel? And, what can provide this feeling?

“Jump into Joy/Hop ind I glæden” 30x40 cm/11,8 x 15,7 in – 2800 kr./ 525 $

“Jump into Joy/Hop ind I glæden” 30×40 cm/11,8 x 15,7 in – 2800 kr./ 525 $

Now I had taken not just one, but several small steps. And my direction had already changed. 3 steps in a new direction is a change of direction, although it is only 3 very small steps!

Everybody has days that are foggy or hard or downright unbearable. EVERYBODY. WITHOUT. EXEPTION.

And those days are really important. For this is where we could get lost if we just let things slide. And sometimes we may get lost for days, or months, or even years. But it is also on those days we have the opportunity to carve into our minds and lives which direction we sincerely want to take. To change direction requires just that; a conscious direction-change. Ever so gently, step by step. But with increased focus on where the heart longs to go.

Want to know what my first tiny step was? It was a really easy one (the first step should be small and easy, otherwise you won´t do it; you are after all in the middle of a swamp…). I watched this wonderful video with two love-beaming power ladies, and felt embraced, seen and inspired.

With wishes for loving but firm leadership of the parts of us that sometimes can be lost in swamps.

Love from Lise.

New art: Letting go & Sisters by Nature + glimpses from an exhibition in Pakhuset, Klintholm Havn

IMG_3901

Dear friends.

I have been painting a lot lately. And facebooking a lot. And also Instagramming. And of course sending out my newsletter with shop offers and free printable and stuff.  (Subscribe here if you like!). I have not been blogging much though… a bit too many balls perhaps!

But today I am eager to share two new paintings with you. They kind of appeared as twin-paintings, as you can see above.

The first one is about letting go and recognizing your own garden of love. The second is about that natural bond there is between girls, woman, ladies:

Letting go with love

“Letting go”, acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas, 60 x 80 cm. – 4.800 kr.  / 24 x 32 in, 690 $

This one comes with a small text:

“Let your hair down and allow the wind to flutter through your soul. Release the birds. Dare for a while to doubt and loosen your grip. Let whatever you kept bound in fear, fly freely.

And see, you stand on a fertile ground of love. It was given to you at birth and you can never lose it. Every time you love, forgive, release or look at another with honest, clear eyes, it becomes richer and greener. Water it frequently. And above all: enjoy it! And smile at all the birds you love when they come to refresh themselves in your garden, again and again.”

*******

Sisters by nature

“Sisters by Nature”,  acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas, 60 x 80 cm. – 4.800 kr.  / 24 x 32 in, 690 $

The second painting is about that special bond that can be between ladies, woman, girls. A sense of natural connection and understanding that is so special, and, to most ladies, so, so important. I kind of really like how they turned out, plus I personally like the light and green colors a lot.

They are both part of a local exhibition rigth now in Pakhuset, Klintholm Havn on Møn here in Denmark. That is a very charming place. We had the opening last sunday complete with all the 25 artists and over 200 guests, live music, pizza from the local pizzaria (which happens to be the best in the area) and of course drinks and lost of smiles and chats. I love those kind of happenings! Here is a peak into my little booth there, it´s almost a small shop complete with cards, posters, cups and Calendar. And, of course the paintings. If you are nearby I recommend a visit to Pakhuset, this old 3 store building filled with art!

I love how in every booth you get a glimpse of the next; this way the arts and crafts blend and compliment each other very well!

FullSizeRender

Gotta say, I am actually very happy with the cups! They are really beautifully made with a fine shining finish – in our home they are a clear favorite, and they make a wonderful gift with joyful, uplifting images.

You can really sense how old and raw the building are – that´s also why it´s only used from may to september; it´s too cold in the winter but very charming during summer time. A big bonus is that this part of Møn is very well visited because of the many tourists coming to enjoy the special Møn´s Klint, the beautiful white cliffs.

Till soon, and take much care,

Lise.

New art: The river of my heart (and about being stuck in emotions…)

I just finished this, one of my bigger paintings:

“RIVER OF MY HEART”

"River of my heart/ Hjertets flod" - 31,5 x 47,2 in/ 80 x 120 cm, acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas. Price: 925 $/ 6.500 kr.

“River of my heart/ Hjertets flod” – 31,5 x 47,2 in/ 80 x 120 cm, acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas. Price: 925 $/ 6.500 kr.

“The river of our heart flows continuously. It contains every emotion, every color, light and darkness, and also all our greyness. Sometimes deep, sometimes low and shallow, and always weaving through life’s landscape of narrowing and widening, wild forests and fine gardens. Its task is to FLOW. And it wants to flow freely, and in return it brings joy in abundance when we dare let it do just that.”

– Lise Meijer

– Lately I have been pondering how emotions are like the weather: they shift according to all kind of outer influences – like high or low pressure, warmth or cold, and also pollution and many other outer or inner causes. It takes a lot of skill to learn to predict the weather, and even when the expets have done their best – they can be wrong! The weather color very much how we experience the day & the world, and it is NEVER permanent! Also, there is always, always a blue sky or a crisp clear starry night to be found behind the clouds.

IMG_3600

Above: Celeste (11) recently did my hair with an upside – down heart which I loved!!!

It is the same story with emotions: they move through us all the time and  like the weather they can never be completely fixed. They appear due to the processes we are exposed to, inside and outside ourselves, but it can be hard to always determine what caused them to turn up. And even harder to change them when cloudy emotions seem to fill the whole inner sky. The best cure of cloudy emotions I know is MOVEMENT! Any kind of movement; physical exercise, a walk, going to the cimema, doing some cleaning or tidying or creating something. It is also the last thing I want to do when stuck in heavy emotions. But once I do, things slowly shift. It often takes a while, but there will be a shift.

And believe me, I had many (MANY) mornings in my life where I had no idea of how to get myself unstuck enough to begin working! Especially during the latest years where all I had to do was to get up, go upstairs and get myself to create. Wonderful when you FEEL like it! And seemingly impossible at other days. But I have sincerely come to love the fact that there IS  something I can do about that state, even if I don´t feel the effect immediately.

I love the fact that I can change my inner weather!

And when nothing else works, I go to the chapter “Mood shifter” in this wonderful book. Highly recommended!

With love from Lise.

PS: as always, I ship worldwide with joy, both items from my shop with prints and cards and original art!

The sound of A sudden stillness

HealingHearts

(“Healing hearts”. Text reads: “In the quiet spaces lives JOY – CREATIVITY – CONNECTION + CARE. Healing of our hearts. To purchase this original painting, contact me.)

The other night I sat down in my living room together with Rune after the children were put to bed. During all the busyness of life we have learned that if we want to have some time together we best put it in the calendar, at least once a week. But often, when we reach that point of the day where the dinner has been served + cleaned away and the children has got their attention and love and are put to bed, we are both a bit frazzled. And it takes quite a shift to move into anything new. So, that night, we agreed to just sit for a while. And take a moment to breathe.

And there I sat and was completely STILL. For more than 5 minutes. at 8.30 pm. Wow!

(Me, on a beach on Bornholm)

As I settled, I began to notice the many fine sounds in the room. The calmness of the evening, inviting us to listen to the inner voice and find peace with whatever IS. And I SAW my life, and me in it.

I began noticing how much I have in my life to be grateful for. It is a lot. And I felt the healing of being grateful for what there IS, rather than to long for what IS NOT.

It hit me almost as a chock how I very rarely just SIT.  Without having some specific inner or outer activity going on. I have many wonderful practices. I consider my painting process as kind of a meditative state, a deep inner quiet and a connection to fine things. I do running and pilates. And I walk. I also write morning pages. But just sitting without doing anything has not been part of my practise, so far. From now on it will.

And to be quiet together with someone I care for before engaging is a beautiful way to start a meeting.

Thank you, Quiet moment. Once again, I am grateful to be alive. I will try to remember.
