Using the Hudson River as a focal point to explore color, shape, and feeling I imagined time traveling back to when the New York river was known as Muhheahkunnuk. I grew up 11 miles east of the Hudson river, where some of the Wappinger tribe would have called home in the 1600’s. I visualized the spreading smoke of fires blowing either from food preparation and warmth or the result of war and upheaval. The smoke and/or clouds in many of these paintings can represent either life or death. The semi abstract, dream like quality of color represents a mingling of various times in the history of the landscape. It recalls how a place can bear witness to the constant positive and negative states of human beings and still hold its neutrality and beauty.

‘River that flows both ways’ can compare to the ebb and flow of positive and negative, our own tidal waters of emotions that pass between us and our Source, and the neutral beauty of All That Is.

Sometimes our lives feel like a series of sudden events that keep us from exploring our true purpose. Take time today to stop and give yourself some distance from your challenges. Perspective is a key to opening the doors into a closer relationship with our current direction.

Birdee 2016 by Alison Hilary Corbalis
Stewart and Janet have taught through the years about the importance of our pets as a boost to our physical selves and our mind patterns. I recommend viewing the advanced learning videos about Non Human Energy Chakra Systems and Non Human Communication. You can find them on the Advanced Learning Channel. I have learned a great deal about how my pets have served me well through the years, going beyond giving me unconditional love and happiness!
Tell me about your pets. Did you have a pet that you knew there was more going on than what society may deem ‘normal’? My cat is named Birdee 🙂 When she was little she was found high up in a tree and she jumped into my friend’s arms like a bird. I have been together with her for over 13 years. She is highly intelligent, definitely knows English. and has quite a personality.
Last year I became extremely sick and went into a ‘healing crisis’ after a trip to the acupuncturist. I shook and had a high fever, could not sleep, and thought I was going to die for a week straight. I had never experienced anything like this before. It was a major energetic release started by the accupuncture treatment and a release in which I lost control of due to my inexperience. My liver began dumping toxins that my body could not handle. About a day before my symptoms started Birdee began to get sick. We had exactly the same symptoms of tremendous body shudders, lack of sleep, and fever. I truly believe that she was brunting a large portion of my sickness. After a week we finally began to calm and were able to eat and sleep once again.
She is an amazing hero in my life. Here she is at the age of 6 in an acrylic painting I did of her not too long ago:
One of the most satisfying commission projects I do as an artist is pet portraits. I can create your pet’s likeness in watercolor, acrylic, or oil paint. Many times people come to me after their pets have passed and they are looking for a way to memorialize them. Commissioning a pet portrait is a wonderful way to keep your beloved pet near.
