Hel-n-Joy

A little bit of HELL for a whole lot of JOY!

They say “You teach best that which you most need to learn”

“Balance was the word I used to hear in my head as a child. And the visions. They didn’t happen very often but I recall once stepping up onto a tram in Adelaide, (I think I was about 12) and having this vision that I was actually stepping up onto a magnificent stage and about to talk about Balance. I didn’t understand what it was all about but it felt exciting and wonderful. By the time I reached my destination, I had reconciled in my mind, that even though I didn’t understand it now, I knew that one day I would”. – Helen Joy

That day is here right now!

Balance is the key and even for Helen Joy, this can be a challenge sometimes. Everything in your life, in balance. In total harmony. Is it achievable? What would life be like if more of us had balance? Can everyone have balance? Imagine if everyone lived in balance! Not only with themselves but with each other and with the whole universe. “I don’t know if we could ever see a whole world in balance but I picture it often in my mind”. I truly believe the more people who strive for balance, the more people who can picture what our world would be like if more people were Balanced, the more chance we will have of finding it.

Create

Find the time, every day if you can, to do something creative. Draw a picture, do a painting, sing a song, write the song would be even better. The more you are creative, the more creatively you begin to think and the more interesting life becomes. Visualise how you want your life to be! Anyone can visualise! If you think you can’t you won’t. It is a form of meditation. It is a gift we are all given, unfortunately without a ‘how to’ manual. Just picture in your mind, what you want your life to be. Now get creative, draw it, paint it, start having fun with your life.

Helen draws, paints, takes photo’s. She splashes coffee, she photograph’s messes/stains (to her they are art). She photographs rocks because they look like elephants or tortoises. She has learned how to turn off the left brain chatter and hear the wind. She can stop running to smell the roses. Helen endeavours to live in the now! The following works are a part of Helen Joy’s personal journey. Enjoy!

Coffee stains by helen joy

My favourite way to express my creativity at the moment is with coffee stains. It’s a process of not being in control – letting go – let it be what it wants to be. That in itself can be quite a challenge as we humans tend to want to put meaning to everything. There is no right or wrong – There is no ‘That’s too weird’. Through this process I come to realise these are my dreams. Surreal – beautiful – thought prevoking. Enjoy!
