I am

I was listening to Wayne Dyer last week talking to a woman who had totally given her power over to a man. His advice, of course, was to never give anyone power of who you are but instead, stay in the "Mighty I AM Presence." He went on to say that the Bible says "I AM" is another word for GOD. I started thinking about the power behind "I AM." It is immense! So I created this piece of art to affirm to myself what I AM..... not to speak of the fact that I need to have some art ready for Jeanne Roe from Navidad Farms to come and look at to sell in her gift shop.

It seems to be working. I am realizing the power behind the "Mighty I AM Presence." I have been having a more than amazingly busy this week doing what I love.... art. I AM Grateful.

Woman Of Heart And Mind
I am a woman of heart and mind
With time on her hands
No child to raise
You come to me like a little boy
And I give you my scorn and my praise
You think I'm like your mother
Or another lover or your sister
Or the queen of your dreams
Or just another silly girl
When love makes a fool of me
After the rush when you come back down
You're always disappointed
Nothing seems to keep you high
Drive your bargains
Push your papers
Win your medals
Fuck your strangers
Don't it leave you on the empty side
I'm looking for affection and respect
A little passion
And you want stimulation-nothing more
That's what I think
But you know I'll try to be there for you
When your spirits start to sink
All this talk about holiness now
It must be the start of the latest style
Is it all books and words
Or do you really feel it?
Do you really laugh?
Do you really care?
Do you really smile
When you smile?
You criticize and you flatter
You imitate the best
And the rest you memorize
You know the times you impress me most
Are the times when you don't try
When you don't even try
by Joni Mitchell


  1. You are all these and more. Wonderful work Christina.

  2. That is really powerful stuff! Giving away our inner authority = selling our soul. "Mighty I AM" is a wonderful affirmation. We are all born with all we need to survive. The rest is fluff. Rock on....
