Here's what's on my easel this week:
Ooooo, it's BIG! 5' tall to be exact! My easel really isn't built for that size and only goes down so low so I'm using a stool to get to the top lol
I knew I wanted to paint another larger vertical horse but didn't know the colors—sometimes they come to me in dreams but this one hadn't yet. Then the Apple TV screen saver came up with Santa Monica Beach and I was thinking, "Ohhh, such beautiful colors! Oh! These are the colors for that horse!"
Once the horse was drawn on the canvas I started second guessing myself but now that I've typed all that I'm remembering: NO FEAR! I'm just going to try it, it's just paint! Maybe it's these colors, maybe it morphs into something else.
This was a tough week. My mom went to the ER on Sunday and was admitted. She was confused and unable to respond to questions. My aunt and I swapped sleeping on a recliner in her room so she wasn't alone. Luckily she's home now. It's so hard to see her struggling with back pain and then the confusion on top of it. She's doing much better now. She was dehydrated!
The gift of this hospital stay is that an ER doctor read her MRI from the week before and said he thought that one of the lymph nodes with cancer was pressing against a nerve bundle in her back causing her pain! He suggested radiation to shrink it. Wow. We are all feeling hopeful that this can give her some relief. Please God. She started radiation Thursday and will have it for 10 days in a row. The expectation is that she will start feeling pain relief by Monday.

If you are in my area (Apex, NC and surrounding areas) I'm offering a special deal for you to come try out neurofeedback, coaching, and Reiki!
Half off your first neurofeedback session ($35 for 45 minutes instead of $70)
$25 off your first Equine Gestalt Coaching session ($100 for an hour instead of $125)
Half off your first Reiki session ($45 for an hour instead of $90)
Please take me up on these—and yes, you can use all three, in fact I encourage it! Doing neurofeedback or Reiki before a coaching session puts you in a regulated state which the animals love and is ideal for the work. Doing neurofeedback or Reiki after helps you process your session :-) so it works either way. The coaching setting is beautiful with the horses, donkey, and goats and in my air conditioned neurofeedback room you have a view of the pond and the wildlife that surrounds it. We are in a covered barn for coaching so are in the shade and out of any rain or weather. Reiki can be inside or outside in the barn, depending on weather and client wishes.
