Big Bertha - my kiln.

Hi everybody,
Welcome to Penny Chesney’s Blog.

As many of you already know I am a spiritual artist & metaphysicist.
Heaps of people ask me what that means – “metaphysics” – and I always tell them that the word literally means “the study of energies beyond the physical”.

But enough of the literary lesson, I am excited to tell you that my new ceramics studio – called “The Globalight Spiritual Tool Shop” (www.globalight.com.au) is now up and running. We anticipate having finished work up on line to show you within a month.
In the meantime here is a photo of my kiln – ‘Big Bertha’ – loaded up with our first bisque firing.

It takes a fair bit of work to fill “Bertha” – she has a 35 cubic foot firing capacity and that means lots of work to go into it. But very soon we will be producing large functional pieces so that should fll her up a bit quicker.

Our large range will include: -
Ceramic, timber slab & crystal meditation/attunement thrones
Ceramic & timber slab altars, bookcases & lecterns
But in the meantime we have been concentrating on smaller pieces : -
ceramic & crystal lamps, mirrors, boxes and candlesticks.

I have also had a bit of fun making draped ceramic masks – a series called “The Guardians” – they too are decorated with crystals & feathers.

All the work that comes out of “The Globalight Spiritual Tool Shop” will receive a Seichim attunement process that will “awaken” the spiritual energy of the artefact so each piece will be a very real tool for use by the spiritual voyager.
Each piece undergoes 3 firings in all. A bisque, a glaze firing and a lustre firing. The gold, platinum & silver that you see in my work are the real thing – these lustres enable me to coat areas with a fine patina of precious metal.
Once this first batch of work comes through the completed process we are putting up a new website that will be the showcase for all my artwork.

It has taken hard work, lots of optimism and a whole heap of miracles to get this show on the road.
So stay tuned in for the next exciting episode.

The Nature of Fear

The Nature of Fear.

On the eve of the release of Dr. Haneef who had been held on suspicion of terrorist involvement in Australia I decided to celebrate this wonderful news by writing this expose’ on the subject of Fear.
The age we now live in has often been referred to by ancient prophets as the Age of Fear Mongering and that is exactly what we are experiencing. Society is being manipulated and encouraged to be fearful. It is a very powerful political tool and has been used by greedy and manipulative regimes to control the people many times throughout the ages of man.
Fear has now become a weapon that is being wielded by both sides of the current situation and the intended targets are us, the public. We are copping it from both sides at once.
Have you ever really thought about what fear actually is?
It is the need to harbour a fantasy of a negative outcome.
If you really want to change this frame of mind you can. It takes a bit of work & a lot of soul-searching but it can be done.
There is hope, especially if you learn to spiritually trust and are prepared to welcome change because change is inevitable.
Another way of developing a calm disposition is to reconnect spiritually with the planet and all of nature. Humanity is meant to be a caretaker of this Garden of Eden we live on but we have managed to ruin for ourselves by forgetting that fact. It’s time to re-connect. My advice is to make an appointment with the nearest reputable practitioner of shamanism to learn these self-empowering skills.
We have been warned by past seers & prophets that this time would come. And I think we are being naïve to believe that our destructive life styles could go on indefinitely.
And for those who can’t see past the gloom & doom here’s a message that may bring some Light into your Dark Night of the Soul. There are some amazing things happening around the planet at present, humanity bonding together from all over the world to raise the energy of togetherness, compassion and healing around the globe. Millions of souls joined for one hour at exactly the same time all focusing on one thing, loving the planet and healing Her. For those who participated in the “Fire the Grid” meditation I would just like to say one thing: - “Wow, wasn’t that just the most absolutely splendiferous experience?”
So cheer up folks, there is a Light at the end of the tunnel, all you have to do is look for it. And believe me as one who has done it already, the journey to the Light is full of awesome experiences and adventure.
