I go through a lot of National Geographic magazines and books, and so I often run across the same images more than once. Sometimes I intentionally cut the same one out twice, sometimes it happens by mistake, and sometimes I’ve used an image for personal SoulCollaging® and then see it again and am glad I can put a copy in the workshop pile. The keychain zombie is an example of that.
I recently and intentionally bought a second copy of Earth from Above 365 because I know it’s been at least a year since I bought it the first time, and it was on sale at Half Price Books, and it has 365 images, a great deal! I’ve also learned that an image may be passed by one day and selected for a card on another depending on the energy and personal situation. I pick out images for myself throughout the image life cycle which means sometimes I’ve passed them by at least three times and all of a sudden it definitely needs to be chosen.
I once asked if participants would feel like they needed an image refresh for a multi-day workshop and the answer was yes and no. Yes, new images are always fun, but no, there are images that either haven’t been seen yet, or may be chosen on day two. And so you may see familiar images now and then, and it’s not de ja vu, it’s the same image again!
Megan Menkveld created MMSoul to have a platform from which she could share SoulCollage® and the overall gift of art in order to create balance and wellness for all individuals open to receiving it. This blog is a way to stay in touch and keep the conversation going outside of workshop time. Please visit regularly, comment and share! All are welcome.
