Hey guys, Jordan here! Today i’d like to talk about being spiritual and making money, for this is something that comes up a lot. As you probably know, i’ve been backpacking around the states/australia for about 7 months now, it’s been an awesome trip, and i’ve had some amazing adventures! Many people have accused me of traveling around the world on “daddy’s money”, or just generally doing some sort of underground…stuff.. to make money and keep traveling. I realize it probably seems weird for finances, as were not really selling crystals
(yet) through the website, and not much income is coming in through Spirit Science. Now that Spirit Science is growing and were becoming more of a “business collective of enlightenment”, that’s becoming a problem, and we are working diligently on a store to sell Crystals, Epic Bumper-stickers, Meditation Tracks, and other things that can help with personal and spiritual development.
Now of course, one perspective we hear when we say things like that is accusations that we are not being spiritual, because we are focusing on MATERIAL THINGS!!! Which clearly is evil, right? Totally. I like to think we understand a balance between the 4 elements. Earth is Material, Air is Mental, Water is Emotional, and Fire is Spiritual. All of these things need a harmonious balance in their own, especially on earth – we are the masters of limitation, and being cut off from higher planes means you REALLY need to balance these to find harmony in your life. I love crystals, they’re awesome, and we want to help share them with everyone! More on this coming soon, but now lets get to the reason for this post.
So finances have kind of dwindled for me as well as the council on our road trip, and I set the intention that i’d like to find a way to easily make money and do what I love (art, animation, sacred geometry, all that jazz!) but still move forward on my path of discovery and be able to share it with everyone! When i set that intention, it didn’t take long for an idea to pop up that actually came up a month or 2 ago from our beautiful friend Vanessa, (You may know her as ShePatch). She suggested that I do art commissions on the site for others, I could draw YOU, or anything you wanted (probably in Patch-form), for a price that could both get you a cartoon version of yourself (or whatever) and assist me in continuing my travels and adventures!
And so, this is what i’m going to do! I can post the images all over my web accounts too, Newgrounds, Deviantart, and of course on Spirit Science, unless you wanted privacy on the image and I could omit it. That decision would come from you :)
I’m setting up an “Patchman Art Commission” Page that you can see here. I’m basically looking at how other artists do their commissions on deviantart and adjusting it to suit me and my needs.
Anyways, I greatly thank you, (yes, YOU) for being who you are and coming back, or visiting for the first time, to this website! If you’re interested in getting some art done from myself of you or a character of yours or whatever in patchman form. Maybe a sacred geometry mandala? Head on over to the Art Commission page and read it over, and potentially send me an email!
Namaste, my friends and family~
One thought on “Making Money and Art Commissions”
I’d like to talk to you about part of the article.
“Now of course, one perspective we hear when we say things like that is accusations that we are not being spiritual, because we are focusing on MATERIAL THINGS!!! Which clearly is evil, right? Totally.”
I think maybe this might need a different reality.
Energy is everything and vice versa, so money, materiality in general and even our attitude are actually the same thing. Money is just “God expressed” as Neale Donald Walsch calls it, and it has no “good” nor any “bad.” Addiction to money (or anything, for that matter) is what is evil, imho. Most people are addicted to money, addicted to material objects, and the need to control things.
Money cam make huge differences, if we let it in and let it flow with intention towards good things. Money is also communication, since it’s how we tell each other of the value of our time and creativity.
If we rethink our story about money, we can liberate ourselves from the need and addiction for it, and become able to communicate with it and each other in a way that values Self and not objects.
