Suminagashi is a way of markling by dropping ink onto the surface of water. Previously, my only experience in marbling was when I was 12, when we used thinned […]

Ties That Bind http://www.janetchui.com/ties-that-bind/ http://www.janetchui.com/ties-that-bind/#respond Mon, 11 Nov 2019 07:45:34 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=4296 Watercolours, ink, color pencils, markers 11 by 16 inches November 2019 In late 2019, there were a few unfinished paintings I found worth trying to complete–this was one. It was so old that I couldn’t remember when I first attempted it, but I remember that this was abandoned because there were technical difficulties and flaws […]

Giving Ourselves Permission to Start http://www.janetchui.com/permission-to-start/ http://www.janetchui.com/permission-to-start/#respond Wed, 16 Oct 2019 08:03:00 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=4210 Some of our important choice points in life will revolve around whether to pursue something big and new that we desire. We want the answer to be simple (“Let’s do it!”) but reality and responsibilities can be heavy sometimes. So we set the dreams aside. Sometimes this works. Other times, the desire becomes obsession. This […]

A Meditation on Relationships http://www.janetchui.com/meditation-relationships/ http://www.janetchui.com/meditation-relationships/#respond Mon, 02 Sep 2019 03:29:46 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=4155 Received during the New Virgo Moon, 2019: All relationships provide opportunities for healing. We heal ourselves by creating connections, as these external connections mirror the connections we have within ourselves to all the parts of our inner God. We grow as we know ourselves; as we witness who we are drawn to, and who we […]

Mothers, Monsters and Music http://www.janetchui.com/ayahuasca/ http://www.janetchui.com/ayahuasca/#respond Wed, 21 Aug 2019 02:43:18 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=4094 Preface I haven’t found, online, many women (or mothers) writing on their Ayahuasca experiences. Here’s mine. It will be colored by an artist’s perspective and archetypes from the Tarot. And some mythological references. (I mean, if you’re going to be brainf*cked, age-old symbols from mythology and spirituality lend useful shapes for processing the experience.)  I […]

The Masks We Wear http://www.janetchui.com/the-masks-we-wear/ http://www.janetchui.com/the-masks-we-wear/#respond Sat, 13 Apr 2019 02:57:40 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=3725 More than one conversation that I had in the past week was about wearing masks. For some of us, our behavioral style can shift depending on the people we are around. This may not always be about hiding ourselves, but an unconscious code-switching that adapts our communication to whoever we are with. We probably don’t […]

Of Fake Gurus and Religious Abuse http://www.janetchui.com/fake-gurus-religious-abuse/ http://www.janetchui.com/fake-gurus-religious-abuse/#respond Sat, 09 Mar 2019 03:13:20 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=3623 The spiritual path is not without its pitfalls, and one of the easiest stumbles to make is to over-rely on an external teacher. This assertion itself may raise hackles among those who have been raised to respect and never contradict authorities, but the fact is, such conditioning has always served to undermine our own discernment […]

The ideas and emotions behind the work can come from deep, or from high. Either way, the act of creation heals and transforms. 9 by 12 inches, watercolors, markers […]
