Heal through sacred sound therapy BY CAROLYN VINUP


Art that propels us to inner dimensions, the “invisible world” of magic



Computer-generated mandala art supports healing BY RICHARD BONK


Heal through sacred sound therapy


EREMONY AND traditions enrich our lives and help us make sense of the ups and downs, the confusion and chaos that surrounds us. In today’s world we need sanctuary, we need energy healers, and we need ceremony and sacred traditions. Over the past decade, my journey with sacred sound has expanded my awareness, enhanced my intuitive skills, deepened my relationship with source and touched my heart so it’s in full bloom. The ancient traditions like sacred sound, reminds us that we are part of something bigger, and when we embrace traditions, rituals and ceremony, we are able to participate in the energy of vibra-


tional alignment where we can experience guidance, divine wisdom, peace, love, healing, delight, amusement, surprise, joy, bliss, compassion, and forgiveness. When we are in alignment with who we are and what we share with the world, we dance in the magic of possibilities and open our lives up for something wonderful to happen. I love working with sacred sound and sharing the blessings, attunements and ceremonies with others.

Art that propels us to inner dimensions


H E N I was a little g ir l, I believed in magic; my wand and my paint brush transported me to the invisible world. My mystical path through the arts, along with a powerful inside force, moved me constantly to research a way to portray this invisible world. I was seeking a path unknown to the arts, a new expression that could convey the inner and outer worlds of a human being. The arts and this creative path have leaded me to those unseen places that are hiding from the human eye, into the hidden secrets of life! My deepest desire has been to reveal those unseen dimen-


sions and to offer a breath of hope to our humanity. To do this, I crossed the barriers from the visible dimensions to the invisible dimensions of life, using color vibration as my guide. I wanted to reveal our inner light and the existence of the light of our creator.

ARTWORK THAT CREATES CHANGE IN CONSCIOUSNESS That’s why I dared cross the boundaries of the traditional art schools to create New Invisible Art & Light Techniques©. My paintings can be seen in three wavelengths—black light, normal light, and combined. These images reveal information hidden initially from sight, and in doing so, bring the higher vibrations of the dimen-

sions beyond our physical existence—and all that exists in higher planes—into our physical reality. As the invisible appears, a shock, a wow factor is created, this is a moment of consciousness, where the art and its messages become a catalyst for creating change. The color vibrations connect to the human energy system, raising the frequency in the viewer and healing wounds known and unknown. Studies show the transformation people undergo when they see this unique artwork. These Invisible Art images reveal to us who we truly are; they emanate higher levels of energy. They afford the opportunity to align with higher elecCONTINUED PAGE 16...

tromagnetic frequencies known to enhance our healing and health of body-mind-spirit. A new possibility, where each image opens its portals of wisdom to a new gateway. As these images help us to connect to our life’s experiences and our soul, a new expansion occurs, revealing unknown invisible dimensions where not only the art images dwell, but the dimensions where our soul exists. We are all looking for answers to life’s big questions and trials; many are revealed in my book The Art of HealingArt. The invisible dimensions provide us with guidance, leading us to awaken to our inner wisdom, helping us to transcend and expand beyond limiting thoughts, beliefs, and habits. As we view the art within this book, invisible forces are ignited within us, stimulating our self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth. Jacqueline Ripstein in an internationally renowned artist and peace envoy who has inspired hundreds of thousands of people all over the world through her highly vibrational art, books, self-awareness seminars and workshops. Her astonishing new book The Art of HealingArt: The Keys to Power and Awareness pairs 15 of her incredible images with life lessons that open the door to personal metamorphosis.

Computer-generated mandala art healing


LTHOUGH THE creative process has always been central to my life, there was a period about 15 years ago where, I found myself struggling financially and emotionally to support my family. This superseded my creative aspirations and I sunk to a low, feeling trapped between the proverbial rock and a hard place. After a few years in this space—staring into the eye of the seductive computer—I serendipitously stumbled onto a process discovering I could translate digital information from various
