Abiding with Contemplative Awakening Art
(From the book, pages 17-20)
Awakening Art moves us far beyond looking at interesting or pretty pictures.
Awakening Art moves us beyond the narrow confines of ego limitations. It opens the vast vistas within
the infinite center of our being. Contemplative art offers an invitation: feel Home, alive as Love, aware as
and in resonance as the rhythms of Light, the beauty of harmony.
The paintings in Holy Mother Carry Us did not land upon the canvas to please or placate anyone,
or with a thought of an aim or an audience. They arose spontaneously from a heart of love, and love’s
devotion, brilliantly clear in Presence. The colors and formations cascade from open vulnerability —
they alight from the state of being wherein there is no beginning and no end.
The contemplative art offers many gifts for you. Seeing and feeling beauty uplifts us ever closer to
the feeling of the beauty of holiness, the breathtaking beauty of our Creator. Awakening the
remembrance of the earlier Light beauty cocoons us, as it elevates us; it gently protects-soothes us while
it liberates us.
The contemplative art offers you ... beckons you ... to rest in the immortal nectar of nurture that fortifies
you. This soft abiding opens pathways of remembrance of our Eternal Home.
To remember the Eternal Love of our Original Home, is to remember our True Essence.
As you contemplate the Awakening Art, along with resting in the written messages, we welcome you
to invoke a soft prayer: to directly feel God; to gently and profoundly feel Love; and to sacredly and
happily know your unique bejeweled, diamond value.
This is not a book of learning. These are not words or images to consume. is is a holy prayer scroll
of remembrance ... of tangible felt experience ... of awakening in heavens way, on earth.
As you abide with these paintings, your observation offers a gift to these art forms and further animates
their expression of uplifting others in our world.
The Genesis of Awakening Art Paintings
And Mother Ahavah the Art Gallery
Without formal art training, and with no thinking or planning, the book and art author and artist
(Dr. Ann Marie Nielsen), emanates, swirls and twirls out these heart warming and evocative
contemplative art paintings.
The delicate immensity of Mother God Love, one with Father God Love, shimmers from her heart,
through her hands, to the paper and canvas.
Each painting or drawing generally completes in four to eighteen minutes—on average about nine
minutes. Each thirty seconds to a minute a new layer emerges of forms, colors, and wisdom principles
known in consciousness, coming alive on canvas.
It’s as if the formless Eternal Love, expresses as shapes and colors, forms and images, that spark in us,
the remembrance of Home.
The first sketches/paintings occurred spontaneously in the fall of 2016. Feeling an immensity of divine
devotion, and worshipful prayer, Ahavah, Dr. Ann Marie Nielsen felt an impulse to express on paper
in art forms. She rummaged around and discovered a few pieces of chalk. Then she dug out a few
odd, six dollar pot-of-paint sets, that she had tucked away on a hall shelf for when children visited.
Having no brushes, she painted with her hands, a style she often uses to this day. A few of these early
creations, she drew or painted with eyes closed or with her non-dominant hand.
We welcome you to immerse in the innocence, beauty and holy joy of these art creations, reflective
