creative-interbeing podcast

If this kind of talk is inspiring to you, come and join my inner circle on Patreon for much more… I’ll be sharing soon about a new structure forming for my creative relationship with the world – probably a cultural association.

End Of Blogs transmission

This is my final blog-newsletter for the forseeable future – join me on Patreon if you want to keep in touch with all that I do…          


The video is about following one’s ‘whole-body yes’ and evolving one’s dreams, fulfilment, happiness… This is the last communication that I’ll be sending out via this mailing list for now, and in the immediate future, I’ll be sharing all that I’m doing ONLY ON PATREON.

Please consider popping some coins in my hat via Ko-fi, if you’d prefer: this supports my ongoing creative development.

If you’ve loved my podcasts, you can access them via the School Of Real Art Art Of Life podcasts series. You can also  sign up via the link below, to the free taster course for the school.

Again, I’ll be sharing ALL the new flagship course material for my visionary school via Patreon, so sign up there for that!

It has been a huge pleasure making blogs and podcasts for you, these past years: now I’m taking some time away from mainstream communications, to work intensively on a new direction in my art, and on my visionary art school – I so hope that you’ll keep in touch via my Patreon.

So much love and creative fulfilment to you,

The Hostility Of The Mainstream…

work in progress, May 2019
mainstream media hostility to ideas, feeling, innocence…

My podcast this month speaks some thoughts on how we find the right container for our treasures, our gifts to the world, our uniqueness – when the mainstream is hostile to them.

If you like these ideas and this art, join me now on Patreon – you’ll also get a beautiful welcome package, to the only place on the internet where I share everything…

Blessed day to you, with much beauty, synchrony and good vibes,

ARE YOU SIMPLE?!

LIVING IN THE GIFT

Inspired deeply by the Living In The Gift course with Charles Eisenstein, I’ve been setting up a website of the same name, to gather conversations about what it really means to live in our gifts – and how we can align more with all of our gifts.

The site is here – and with Charles’s blessing, I’m calling on other Living-In-The-Gifters to contribute towards this project.

Please contact us via the site, if you’d like to share a conversation – in video, podcast or written format – we’d love to hear from you!

Thank you for listening in, thank you for witnessing, and for being there – your presence and support have always been immensely enriching for me,

Tante belle cose,

ARE YOU EMBODIED?

Hi beautiful human!

Welcome to the Art Of Life podcasts!
This might be one of the very last blogs that I ever publish like this – listen to my three podcasts in this blog, to understand why…
Below there’s news on new art, a new hardback art book, a new art school course, the Living In The Gift project, and tons more.

this moon’s podcast on embodiment (you may have to visit the actual blog post to hear this)

First, this is a special edition of my podcast – on embodiment – in collaboration with the Embodied Shakti Summit coming up online, 5th to 19th of April.

EMBODIED SHAKTI SUMMIT


Embodied shakti is speaking to the sacred feminine, or the deep feminine; the intuitive, the holistic, the very-long-term and far-seeing, the interconnected and sentient worlds.
It’s not just about women, but this particular gathering happens to be a series of profound talks mostly by women, speaking about each of their unique perspectives on how we fully embody – how we really inhabit, occupy our full being, our biodiverse spectrum of interconnectedness.

This summit is happening alongside a worldwide awakening of the feminine; of horizontal (rather than hierarchical) working-together-for-the-good-of-all: are you feeling it? The walls are falling down between us, and subjects are being discussed in mainstream in ways that wouldn’t have seemed impossible just 5 and 10 years ago: we’re becoming so much more open collectively, to solutions, to sharing, to caring, to positive change rather than competitive consumption.

We still have a long, long way to go, but most of us see huge improvements in our lives, compared to our mothers’ and our grandmothers’ – and most of us can see practical differences in masculine behaviour – in their balancing power and responsibility, rather than arrogantly crashing through the world not caring about the effects they have on everything around them. These are signs that the feminine is coming into all of us, into the world. We are being liberated from times of terrible, unnecessary poverty-of-good-vibes, and are entering a much more peace-full era.

Come and hear much more about it! Sign up for this spectacular event via The Embodied Shakti Summit website – it will air from the 5th to the 19th April.

NEW PAINTINGS

This is the first of a series of four new paintings on the go: I’ll be sharing the others (details of them pictured below) on Patreon this week. This is the larger of the four pieces. All are on reclaimed wood. This one in particular has some interesting details on the lefthand side, where a small edge-piece has been nailed onto the main body.

I absolutely adore connecting with old pieces of wood when they have marks, wearing-away from the ages. This is a particularly character-full series of wood pieces – some of it from a medieval door.

I am so happy to have mostly-finished a painting in just a couple of days! And I love it! It’s the first time in literally a year or more, that I’ve felt so at-one-with-myself, and able to sit and paint effortlessly. This is a hugely happy time for me, after the past years of consistent anguish-inducing disturbance, and I’m making the very most of it.

The ebook that I made your museletter sign-up gift, is now available as a hardback real-life book! It has been adapted (from the ebook) and had new artwork added, and though I am yet to check a physical copy, it’s there in all the colour depth and meaning, concentrated into 28 glorious pages.

If you would like to support this book project, you can donate via my Paypal account, to enable me in ordering a hard copy.

**THIS IS LIKELY TO BE ONE OF MY LAST-EVER MUSELETTERS**

I’m methodically moving all my social media sharings, gifts and boons, podcasts and the art school, plus everything-that-I-create – all under one convenient-for-everyone roof: Patreon.

IF YOU STILL WANT TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT I’M DOING – join me there. It’s an artist-centric platform that supports creatives to keep doing what they do best: very straightforward sign-up process: choose whatever payment per month from $1: they’re introducing worldwide currencies very soon.

I’ve been thinking about this shift for A VERY LONG TIME! There are pros and cons about bringing all my sharings under one umbrella, and making everyone donate at least one coin per month, to be part of my world… It’s a way of creating healthier dynamics between the abundance of what I share with the world, and how I’m rewarded in return: making it a sustainable!

There are way too many ways in which art is devalued by the world, and in which real artists are under-appreciated, taken for granted and even exploited: for the sake of my sanity and wellbeing as a creative, it feels important to acknowledge the inappropriateness of this one-way dynamic: of artists giving to world, without being supported (and ultimately being faced with either commercialising their art, or with not creating it at all.

Clare Galloway http://www.clareartista.com
This extra podcast goes into why I feel a paywall is now necessary in my work

This is a way of symbolically calling for my worth. It means that I can keep painting, keep being real, and keep sharing it in the world! Thank you from my heart and soul, for supporting me on this practical level.

THE NEW SORA

In the next week or so, The School Of Real Art will be launching a brand new, super-yummy free sign-up course, and we’ll be taking down the two current free courses.

I’ll be writing to folks over on the Teachable platform in the next days, telling them about this, in case anyone wants to download the material from the current free courses.

It’s exciting! I have such new vigour and enthusiasm for bringing The SORA flagship course into being also – really inspiring the world to free-and-fulfil-and-inspire themselves creatively!


LIVING IN THE GIFT EVER-SUMMIT

Having been studying the most enlightening course of my whole life, Living In The Gift with Charles Eisenstein, I’ve been actively engaged with a social media group of the same name, discussing our experiences and visions for a better world…

Since the course finished, we’ve been in dialogue around how we can continue developing our connectedness, and the dynamic expansive learning of Charles’s teachings.

I’m extremely passionate about a vision I have of this online library, in the format of a summit, but without time deadlines or sign-up requirements… I’ve got the beginnings of the site started here – and with Charles’s blessing, am calling on other Living-In-The-Gifters to contribute towards this project.

I love the idea of this ‘ever-summit’ – with a non-hierarchical collective of diverse conversations and questions, speaking to this idea of gift culture, of living abundantly and fearlessly, in times where the contrary paradigm (of selfishness and greed) is so rapidly dissipating… We live in incredible times, and we’re all in this together!

ABANDONING SOCIAL MEDIA… FOR A CLEAN SLATE!

So, I’ve been on Facebook for thirteen years – and have beeen increasingly experiencing it as a deeply-cluttered, self-sabotaging exercise – when I’d love to have the option to regularly clear all data from the profile: to begin from scratch. Here’s a third podcast, on why our digital debris is something that we’d never accept in any other realm of life!

HUGE HEALTH IMPROVEMENTS

A profound positive change has come over my life, work and house this month, directly related to the passing of the elderly neighbour. Her granddaughter no longer screams violently for hours on end every day and night – and so the house is drenched in beautiful peace, as it should have been since I first came here 8 yrs ago!

My mind, body and spirit are now aligning and calming, unfolding, and my work is becoming prolific outflow again, as it used to be, before I entered this bondage with the neighbours… I have never been so grateful for normality in my life – it leaves me grinning, dancing, yippeeing and thanking the Universe, several times a day! So much love and happiness is flowing in all directions!


(detail from work in progress)

NEW TIERLESS PATREON

Oh heaven: I was just thinking that it’d be so good to have a completely tierless Patreon… and they announced that we can! Flipping beautiful synchrony and happiness: now you can join me there on whatever level of monthly donation – from $1 and up… unlimited choice! I’ll be deleting the tiers this week: it makes my whole Patreon campaign about a million times less complicated for me!

Thank you for listening in, thank you for witnessing, and for being there – your presence and support has always been immensely supportive for me,

Tante belle cose,

When Did We Decide That Nudity In Art Is ‘Pornography’?!


This is how mainstream ‘social’ ‘media’ would like you to view my art – see the painting in full, below

Hi dear friend,

If you’ve been following me on ‘social’ ‘media’, you’ll know that my art was censored (yet again) on both Facebook and Instagram last month.

This had me raging, taking my art off the two platforms, and thinking VERY deeply on what the whole issue means: for me, for my business, for my art’s visibility in the world, for the direction that mainstream is leading folks, for the future of human consciousness that is not being exposed to art, what happens to all the artists, what happens to people when they are no longer permitted to see imagery of unclothed human beings… without them being in some way sexualised.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

Ironically, the image in question (this time) did contain a big, happy, golden erect male member, BUT this is NOT a ‘SEXUAL’ IMAGE: this is a painting which speaks to the deep harmony between a man and a woman, as she prepares herself to take in his lineage, his genetic and familial heritage, holding the space for hers and his family stories to become one – in her gestating their child.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

His lingam is a holy transmitter of his deepest essence and power: it is neither weapon nor means of attacking or hurting the femine, nor is it offensive or against family values (haha – how ironic!) or any other negative connotation (as our culture projects onto it).

The beautiful engorged lingam is a divine symbol of connecting worlds; the lingam and the sperm which it transports, are all about connecting spirit, life, vitality, love, fortitude, stability – sharing it from the masculine into the gmeinne, so that it may serve the harmony of our shared future.

The painting speaks to the profound humility and SERVICE that we bring to the world, in our vulnerability in love, and in making new life.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

It also speaks of this deep feminine alchemy; the sacred offering-up of her very identity and story, her vulnerability and potent ability to O P E N on all levels, to accept the other, and all that comes with him. Her strength to both hold all of her own sentience, herstory, sense of self, whilst simultaneously accepting another’s reality and family line to literally come through her, be woven into and out of her…

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

As I speak to in the video below, the sensuality in this context, is something VERY DIFFERENT than the peak-orgasm-focussed, immature male, superficial titillation, or the ‘porn model’ of ‘sexuality’, which is so prevalent-and-at-the-same-time-‘forbidden’ (‘forbidden’ meaning really, commercialised and marketed like fuck, ubiquitously) in our modern world.

This ‘forbidden-and-yet-everywhere’ is one of the major methods of bondage into the patriarchal power/ energy hierarchy. We’re all are trained early on to:

  • separate our ‘sexuality’ from the rest of our physical, mental, emotional and energetic body
  • to see this ‘part’ of us as something ‘rude’ or ‘bad’ and so to be kept hidden
  • at the same time, to have our emotions, minds and physical bodies to be stimulated artificially and superficially, into tension and instant gratification

Which pulls us completely out of the path of self-knowledge, integration, healing, expansion and illumination, that sensual union is ultimately all about. In many ways, I feel that even using the word ‘sexuality’ or ‘sex’ is hugely misleading and distracting from the truth of the matter.

This is a video of this new painting illiustrated in this blog – and my feelings around it having been censored on Instagram and Facebook as ‘pornographic’.

So the whole event of art and ideas like these being censored in the mainstream, is intimately entwined with a) the non-mature masculine concept of sex as peak/ tension orgasm (hugely limited view of human potential!), and b) the de-evolving of human consciousness into the collective presumption that nudity equals (the afore-mentioned kind of) ‘sex’ – that the human body has no other significance nor can it be interpeted in any other way.

This essentially gives us a profound collective sense of our lives being COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS AND SHALLOW – and gets us into this drive of desperately trying to titillate ourselves, be that sexually, with food or drink, substances or clicking on nice pictures and stories online.

Which in turn leads us further into this spiralling atrophy, because what we are seeing in mainstream online, is the systematic removal of profoundly important images of ourselves – images from art in particular, which DON’T tow the corporate-values party line. The System will have you think that the sacredness of (especially women’s) wholistic, sentient ecstatic existence, should be shut down, hidden and labelled as ‘dirty’.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

Censoring the human body is no small issue: we have had the human body in art and at the centre of community life for millennia – since the beginning of time, in fact. The human body without clothing is a vital symbol of ourself, ourselves; of what we inherently are, what we feel, what we represent and can be, and much more. The fact of not adorning the body, not putting clothes on, gives us the directness that art needs – to speak of truth, vulnerability, unmasked reality – without being bound to a particular time and place. The naked body is what allows art to speak across centuries and cultures, languages and norms.

Clare Galloway artist http://www.clareartista.com

The more I unravelled this ball of tangled, contrary ideas and assumptions, the deeper I realised that it goes… I speak more strongly in previous podcasts around this (here, about leaving social media, on my Patreon pages), as I have swung from being heart-broken to raging to THIS MUCH CHANGE to oh, there’s actually a whole other world out there of people like me who are also leaving the mainstream for the same reasons!

So I’m also now seeing-feeling-understanding the gift in having been censored and effectively strong-armed out of the mainstream. I speak in this month’s podcast about how something that can seem huge and challenging, often holds treasure in its heart, if we’re able to see how it is aligning us with our deeper truth:

This month’s podcast is on ‘Spontaneous Holy Work’ or following one’s Creative Flow – allowing our work to flow through us…

The gift that I speak about is something that I’ve always worked with: when something (seemingly) disruptive, disappointing, or even soul-destroying comes along – we have two main choices; we can try to resist it, or we can move with it and through it. The latter being the more productive and rewarding path, which leads us to deeper understanding of the world, our place in it, and our direction as a collective of human being.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

It might seem like we should be martyrs, welcoming pain or suffering, but it’s actually a suggestion that in not being attached to hardship, we’re able to move through it (and get beyond it) much more quickly and efficiently – and we’re able to glean great lessons and treasures from it.

When we really bring our full presence and attention to our personal struggles, without trying to control them, to get rid of them, or fight against them – when we simply accept that this is part of life, this experience has purpose and potential in it, and that it will pass… we allow something precious to come through us, which simply cannot exist when we’re tensed up in combat towards whatever is happening around us.

detail from Sharing Ancestry, Creating Future painting, 2019

There’s a subtle-but-quantum difference between seeing what is happening around us as meaningless or random, and seeing it as having deeper underlying purpose and reason.

Clare Galloway artist http://www.clareartista.com

When we look with the latter perspective, we can feel ourselves as an integral part of the universe, and we can feel our way forward too – we can feel what wants to be said and done, for the good of all things, in this moment – rather than scrabbling full of fear to survive in a world which appears to be unfolding chaotically – even violently, dangerously – our tense minds and feelings always somewhere other than now.

Although it might seem (on the surface/ at first) that having art removed from the mainstream might threaten the very soul of the world… Actually, it might make profound sense to remove the real art – art that transmits deep truth – to a safer place, away from the collective projection that ‘bodies without clothing are inherently wrong’. And thus to make it all the more visible by its absence…?

10 Basic reasons why not-having-money is an incredible gift

Hi dear friend – a blessed midwinterfest and beautiful new year to you, and welcome to The Art Of Life blog-newsletter-podcast-blog-whatever-you-want-to-call it…

This is a video about why not having money can – counter-intuitively – be an incredibly enriching experience: in it, I go into ideas like why are we pulled along by money-gurus who insist that if we just push harder or present more cleverly we’ll be rich (this only works for a specific percentage of people), why doesn’t the world value art much more than it does, how can we find better platforms when the mainstream is censoring or diminishing us, or not valuing us…

Meanwhile, here are 10 basic reasons why not having money is an incredible gift:

  1. It helps us to appreciate the value of what little we do have.
  2. It helps hone our focus significantly, and to prioritise where we might have been vague about what we wanted/ where we were headed.
  3. It’s a chance to step off of the conveyor belt of simply-consuming, and into a deeper perspective of ‘what’s going on here, anyways?’
  4. It lets us see that the conventional world might not be valuing what we’re doing – and so we might want to focus even more on our uniqueness and our dreams.
  5. It engages our resourcefulness and ability to adapt, in ways that rarely happen when we have a good steady income.
  6. It can help us see that, actually, the world does not grind to a halt, or implode or turn into chaos and terror, just because we can’t pay a bill.
  7. It gets your engines revving, where you might have been being a tad unenthusiastic or blase about life.
  8. It might even feel lighter and less pressure-full, ironically: if you don’t have money and can’t pay for things, you can avoid all kinds of pressures to join in or conform that, if you have the resources, you might feel obligated to participate in/ contribute to.
  9. It makes you more appreciative of others in difficulty, especially the poor, and it forces you to reach out yourself, in ways that we tend not to when we have all our needs met through transactions.
  10. And finally – having no money brings a kind of quiet and peace into the everyday – an elegant simplicity, that one cannot access to easily when there’s money to be spent…

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this big subject… What with the cost of modern life, the throw-away quality of so many things we depend on, the tightening of online sharing laws, the use of austerity measures to further disempower whole populations – we live in a time where struggling to get by seems to be more of a norm than ever, and our collective values seem to be being eliminated altogether. I’m going to be speaking on multifarious aspects of money and deep creativity, in the coming year.

One of many artworks in my catalogue, see many on Etsy

Also, two big things in the next few days-

a: THE 2 for 1 PAINTING OFFER finishes in just a few days (31st December, midnight CET!)- download my catalogue here, and/ or visit my Etsy shop here – and contact me as directed in the catalogue, if you are interested in a particular piece.

b: MY ART IS BEING REMOVED FROM FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM, due to their aggressive, offensive censorship approach (i.e. labelling my paintings and ideas as pornographic – which they very much are not) – I’ll be sharing in the future on Patreon, and also on the new Ko-fi, for folks who are interested in my expressions and offerings….

If you value what I’m sharing, please consider signing up as an ongoing patron, or putting a tip in my tip jar:

As ever, thank you from my heart and soul to all of you who continue  to encourage and practically support my work – you are all so  much a part of what I’m creating – I’m working on new ways to make  my art  available to the people who love it the most, and to combat it being  hidden from and censored by the mainstream.

With much love and gratitude,

Solstice art gifts – and podcast on midwinter creative alignment

header July 2018

scroll down for your gifts xx

Ciao, dear friend…

Welcome to my podcast ♥

This is a special mid-month solstice podcast on why, when the world doesn’t seem interested in what we’re creating – it’s the time when we most need to keep doing it!

Winter is a time to align with the depths of what we most feel, what we most want, where we most want to be, how we most want to create our reality.

DSC_0535_2.JPG

The alchemy of winter is this subtle realignment that goes on underneath the surface, the hours contemplating or conversing at length in front of the fire, the connectedness of coming together with family and community, and the sharing of our abundance with each other…

It’s also a time to observe beauty in the non-sunny, in the non-up-up-up; in the darkness and cold, and in the struggle and quiet success of a life well lived, a body kept warm and nourished.

Click play below, to hear the podcast:

This is a short video about a new painting I’m almost finished:

And this is a short video about the Sacred Pregnancy painting, soon to be released for sale.

Longer videos about both of these paintings are available this week on my Patreon
