The Angel in you

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.

- Michelangelo

I love this quote. As an artist, I have that same sense of curiosity each time I look at a blank canvas. A wondering of what needs to be set free. Where I will end up. Knowing that something new is always possible.

What I have come to see in the process is that the more I show up with nothing on my mind, the freer I am and the more authentically me the final result is.

I see each blank canvas as a process of becoming. An invitation to explore possibility and unlock innate potential. To discover for myself what more is on offer.

I invite you to do the same with whatever you are struggling with in your life right now. Can you stop trying to work it out. Can you put it aside and find a quiet space in which to wonder what else is possible. Connect with a 'blank canvas'. To embrace the possibility that life has more to show. To be open and see what fresh ideas bubble to the surface.

Because what is on offer here in this 3P conversation is the endless possibility that there is a whole new version of who you can be in the world waiting to be set free.

Your thoughts are like the artist's brush. They create a personal picture of the reality you live in.
