Budget Cuts

There is an updated federal budget and it shows something that immediately triggered the CEEQER in me… a cut in funding to all the art and education programs.

This is a MAJOR shift and as an Art educator in the public school system, I will be affected by this change. So when I read this, I had to turn on my ceeqer senses.

Question the situation: What DOES this mean? How could this affect my reality? Brainstorm the possible outcomes from this situation, and all the possible meanings and reasons.  Not just reason from my mind, as those are but expectations, but also my intuition… from the divine.

Everything in reality relates to our energetic being… everything happens as it should on multiple planes in what we call existence. Its our perception of what is happening that makes us feel as though it should or shouldn’t be, or is or isn’t good.

So I asked myself… What was the world like before the arts were federally funded? What was education like before the arts? What would the world have been like without ever having art federally funded?

I know that Art Integration is the most holistic manner of learning… it is through experience and expression that we can relate to our reality and integrate new knowledge into our being.

Then I asked myself what would the world look like after the funds are taken away from these programs?  What exactly do these programs do? How do they assist in lifting up the divine being within us all?

As I reflect on these questions I realize this is the time for the divine light to shine bright in the darkness. When there is darkness, the light pierces through with such power and beauty that it is almost blinding.  Now is the time for all of us who are called to teach and serve to stand up and take a hold of our power and lead the way.

We are divine light… we are all unique and have beautiful gifts to share, to help each other grow and to make the most of this existence. When we know ourselves… when we are centered in our own light, we can shine bright for those around us to see themselves more clearly.

We are all creators… we do not need federal funding to see that.

This is that time.
The budget cuts are like a dimming of the city lights
which allows us to see the the moon brighter
Everything happens as it should,
it is time to take back our power and lead.
