MAIDEN OF THE WATERS
~ Exploring the Oceans of Spirit ~
At the core of each and every one of us is the spark of Creation and an infinite connection to Love, Light & the Universe. When I create my work, I surrender to the flow and allow myself to be guided, placing a specific intent for each piece. I believe that when we connect with the Oneness of the Universe through the process of quieting our mind, we have access to unlimited creative potential. As we align ourselves with pure intent unclouded by other thoughts or distractions, the outcome is something otherworldly.
I have come to understand that the images I create are representations or expressions of feelings, emotions or energetic states. Everything has an energetic component and depending upon your intent it will radiate that thought and influence into it's surrounding environment, as proven by Masaru Emoto's studies of frozen drops of water. Think of my mandala-like works as snowflakes emanating a thought or feeling.
I welcome you to explore and enjoy the many works that I have created since I began exploring this special process in 2012. Enjoy!
CONNECTING WITH SPIRIT
Corey Elaine Bley
"To know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker,
the stillness underneath the mental noise,
the love and joy underneath the pain
Is freedom, salvation and enlightenment."
The path of an artist is a journey, as with anything in life. The deepest form of expression is truth,
which is why at times creating can be intimidating. To be an artist, one must be comfortable with being naked on the canvas. All of yourself goes into what you create.
Over time, I began to understand this on a deeper level. Where I had once thought I had a lack of voice or direction in my work at the beginning of my journey, I discovered from looking back on past projects and the progress created that a definite pattern emerged. In reflection, the work itself seemed to represent a very common human plight, that of understanding oneself, in every aspect, atom, and molecule of light,
by breaking through boundaries, fears and blocks
in order to connect with all that is.
The remainder of my work that arose after healing some of those internal conflicts are paintings that I believe depict the universe in it's purest essence, and it's incredible unending flow. To produce each work, I had to intuitively trust that by placing an intent for expression, a painting would result. This work I call "Channeled", which I believe we all do but is not necessarily understood in it's entirety. I believe this is where pure inspiration comes from, instead of needing a physical muse, the Universe is the source for unlimited creative potential.
Put simply, the artwork I create comes from a place of Oneness,
and represents the deep spiritual truths I have experienced in life, meditation and
being present in life's journey.
Please join me in exploring some of life's mysteries, and perhaps for a moment
ponder our beautiful, infinite universe together.
