Day 26 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 26: Artistic Spirit From Birth?

Music Deep Within

The birth of my niece got me thinking about art and spirituality even more deeply than before. As our spirits enter the body, do we bring with us artistic talents and gifts? Or, does it depend on our personality as to whether we recognize or embrace creative expression?

Was my love of music present from the moment I entered this world? Can something so powerful, meaningful, and ultimately healing be a gift from an all-knowing/all-powerful deity? Perhaps I performed as a professional singer in a past life and the residuals paid it forward to the present one. Or…maybe a slew of psychological, philosophical, and medical reasons explain my artistic spirit connection.

I don’t presume to have the answers to the questions posed above, but that doesn’t stop me from pondering the possibilities.

 

**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 85 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
