What is channelling, really?
This question arrived home in a deeply personal way on July 10, 2013.
That’s the day I, who had never painted in my life, suddenly started painting a series of paintings which currently number over 50.
The paintings clearly speak.
So clearly that almost immediately a large Buddhist temple in central Japan decided to house a permanent collection of my paintings.
Then, on October 8, incredible as it is, I suddenly began channelling music.
I play this music myself, on a digital piano I ordered when this unexpected compulsion to sit at a piano arose.
As with my painting, I have never played the piano in my life.
With no technical skills or training in either painting or music, I can only say that I am channeling my art and music from an accessible creative stream in the universe.
This channelling through me is deeply joyful and satisfying.
If I do go into any sort of trance, it is a trance in which I remain totally conscious and aware.
I begin each painting without any sketch or clear image, simply choosing the colors I will use.
The composition of the painting unfolds intuitively on the canvas.
Once I start I work rapidly and surely, and when a painting is completed, I do not touch it again, except to frame it.
Same with my music, which I am calling “music from source.”
When I sit down at the piano I rest my hands lightly on the keyboard, then I begin moving my fingers intuitively.
The piece is played complete in itself, and I simply record it.
After so many years as a writer and spiritual healer-teacher, this is an enormous transformation for me.
I now focus on bringing my art and music to the world.
As I continue to adjust to this magnificent creative and deeply healing flow, I hope you will enjoy the journey with me.
Today I have embedded a short YouTube video introducing my art and music.
It is titled, Catrien Ross Art and Music Channelled by Catrien Ross, Artist and Mystic in Japan.
Do you have a personal experience of channelling?
I’d love to hear from you.
