Day 3 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 109 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.

DAY THREE:  Musical Theatre Sends My Spirit Soaring

Energy, electricity, and anticipation pulsate through my every pore long before the theatre lights dim and the house quiets. The overture begins, sending the beloved melody soaring towards each wall until it reaches not only my ears but my spirit. The love, care, and dedication that went in to the creation of each note placement mesmerizes and impresses. Voices echo from the stage, creating both a desire to cry from the beauty and a smile that spreads from ear to ear. I’m enthralled, entranced, and yet alert to appreciate the talent before me. When the lights return and the curtain call begins I rise to my feet in celebration. My applause signifies my respect and admiration to those on stage and behind it that put their heart and soul into two-and-a-half hours that moved this artistic spirit!
