Overview

REVEALING - The Evolution of an Artist's Soul: A True Adventure Story of a Quest for Enlightenment by Irene Vincent

Irene Vincent's novel, Revealing: The Evolution of an Artist's Soul is not only a visionary artist's memoir that includes 73 images; it is a fast paced adventure story about a young woman's unconventional journey toward enlightenment. It is a humorous, heart warming, tear jerking, uplifting odyssey that will take you deeper into your truer self. It will inspire you to seek your own dreams and enhance your own destiny.
Irene said, "As long as I can remember, God has been my divine protector, my best friend, my all-loving, all-forgiving, and guiding force with whom I have always spoken. On a seemingly ordinary day, a near death experience caused my life events to pass before my eyes like a movie. Even though I was only nine years old, the flashing scenes beckoned me to reflect upon my life and to make new choices. This near death experience forever changed my concept of time and intrigued me with the mysteries of the human brain. Ultimately, it put me on a spiritual quest, seeking ever-grander mysteries.
My journey has taken me on many paths. I have explored life from the ghettos, from poverty, from relationships, from the entrepreneurial business world, and from the perspective of an artist. I have traveled and experienced many cultures, along with exploring the esoteric arts. I didn't understand it at the time, but all of these paths were leading me to a spiritual understanding of life, transforming my soul.
At nineteen, I had an identity crisis. During one particular long night, I analyzed my life's events, dating back to when I was three. I questioned, Who am I? What do I want to do with my life, rather than just listening to people around me telling me what I should do? From this, I rediscovered that I had always wanted to be an artist. That very next day I started painting.
At age twenty-seven, I had another near death experience. I came to see such incidents as divine intervention, a way of reviewing my life's choices, of renewing urgency in my cause, of keeping my soul on its evolutionary path. I hope by reading this story you remember the ways the divine has intervened in and influenced your life.
I also hope to inspire people to realize the power of art: its power to convey emotions, to take us deep into our souls, to make the world around us more colorful, to enhance our aliveness, and to awaken the ancient and sacred wisdoms within us. The Divine Universe speaks to us through dreams, visions and images. In this book I share the contemplations and visions that inspired my different art pieces to give readers a deeper understanding of creativity so that they may, perhaps, tap into in their own.
In this first book of my trilogy, I explain the makings of my different art series: surreal, geometric abstract, organic abstract, expressionistic, political, and their transformation into my shamanistic-spiritual art.
I ended this part of my story with my painting, Journey of the Soul since it was a ritualistic act, a self-initiation, and a crystallized commitment for making my soul's journey as my primary purpose in this lifetime. I hope that my story inspires you to listen, trust, and follow your soul's journey."

I have read many books over the years and have gotten much joy, insight and learning from them. After reading Irene Vincent's The Evolution of An Artist's Soul, I was able to put together what I have been searching for over the years. Irene Vincent's book tells the story of not only her life and synchronistic events that helped define her life, but the book also helps us see how we can all find more meaning and direction for our own lives. She also helps those who are on a spiritual path understand how important all of our life events are, and how we can use them to succeed, in whatever we do. Not only does it pull you into her journey, but it also becomes a guide to help every one us find our own truer selves and life direction.
