(New art – part of a series of mini-paintings for my exhibition in Pakhuset– sold)
You are a life-musician. Yes, you are!
You create music in the way you interact with others. Your life-music is moving energy that vibrates in space. That music can move, give courage or heal.
In musical ensembles, one of the most important things to master is the art of listening attentively, while at the same time contributing with your own sound. To give and take your space simultaneously, like in a dance.
Many people’s greatest wish today is to be heard. And often there is a lack of attentive listening. But for every voice that needs to be heard there must be an attentive and courageous listening ear.
You can be that listening ear in the world. And contribute to a more harmonious world-melody with your ability to be part of an ensemble. Watch and give time. Listen to the spaces in-between. Maybe you need to wait with speaking? Or perhaps it’s time to talk firm and loud? Give space and notice the spaces. And then contribute with something you truly feel is needed. And feel how the music evolves.
You can start with listening to yourself and then move on to extend this service to someone you meet.
With your listening attention, you can help someone else to also watch and listen. It´s attractive and contagious!
Big love from Lise.
PS: I hear you!

BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF
The gentleness you give yourself carefully nourishes your inner willingness to open yourself to life. When you treat yourself gently, your zest for life is allowed to come bubbling like a liberated source from within your own core.
Carefully you are being listened to by the most important person in your life – yourself – and slowly you become open to the dance of life, of sheer pleasure simply because you can and want to. And in that dance lies a great strength.
Willingness to the dance of life can not be stamped out of the ground or planned to the surface (though both stamping and plans have their place in life). The desire to be part of the dance of life must be nurtured from within, with gentleness, good things and much listening – from yourself to yourself.
It is a powerful gift to be gentle with yourself.
Love from Lise.
