I read a quote by a man I hadn’t heard of before, Wayne Dyer. I made such a connection with the quote, that ‘Magical Binoculars’ became the inking you see in the photograph.
If you could have magical binoculars that you could focus and look at the field of intention, you would see what the source of all things looks like. It’s a source of love and kindness and beauty and creativity, and it’s a source that excludes nothing and it’s a source of unlimited abundance.
Isn’t that lovely? If you don’t get the ‘lovely’ first time, read it again. Read it as many times as you need to in order to use your own internal Magical Binoculars, and not only see what that quote is saying, but to feel it too.
If you look at the InkTober picture for today you’ll see a pretty standard view of a scene, looking out from a beach, as night is falling. It’s not dark, but it’s not light. You can still see the land and the edge of the sea in the distance, but you can’t really see anything other than that.
But … what do you suppose would happen if you looked through the Magical Binoculars? What might you see then? What wonders would open up for you, I wonder?
Would you see the birds, flying in the sky, having one last stretch of their wings before going home to bed?
Could you see the man, stood on the end of that land in the distance, with his fishing rod in his hand?
Would you perhaps see the Mermaid, playing in the moonlight?
Who knows … for your sight may be different from mine. Perhaps you will focus your eyes in a different direction. Perhaps you will lift your eyes to the sky above and see the Gates of Heaven. Would you maybe, see the Angel? Or perhaps you will look to the Edge of the Sea, in the distance, and see what is there and has been there all the time, but we miss it because we don’t use our Magical Binoculars.
The inks I used for this drawing were:
- Black Ink
- Brown Ink
- Teal Drawing Ink
- Metallic Drawing Ink in Rose Gold and Silver (see pic. below)
- Yellow Drawing Ink
- Blue Ink
… in addition, I used a white Jelly Roll Pen for the highlights on the Magical Binoculars, and a tiny amount of Acrylic white paint in order to help the moon and clouds to be what I wanted them to be. But apart from that, everything else you see is ink.
Use your Magical Binoculars today. See if you can find the things you might normally miss because you’re too busy, or not see at all, even though they’re right there, under your nose!
Wishing you a Magical Monday.
