The Three Graces
Things are pretty, graceful, rich, elegant, handsome, but, until they speak to the imagination, not yet beautiful.– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once Upon A Time
The all mighty Zeus and the sea nymph Eurynome had three lovely daughters—Aglaia, Thalia, and Euphrosyne. Taking after their charming mother, the Three Graces were the epitome of divine beauty and grace.
Above the shimmering golden clouds on Mount Olympus, the nymphs accompanied Aphrodite—the goddess of love and beauty, and her man, Eros. Hand in hand, the sister trio sang and danced to the hypnotic melodies of Apollo’s lyre for the gods and goddesses.
On special occasions, the Three Graces would join forces with the Nine Muses. And holy moly that was a show to cross off the bucket list! Imagine the heavens opening as the greatest entertainers of all time came together in perfect musical harmony. Simply awe-inspiring.
When not killing it on stage, the charming sisters would fly around the planet, inspiring the beautiful creations of artists, musicians and dancers.
The Three Graces Wisdom
We all have an inner artist. The ability to turn our thoughts into masterful creations is what makes the human experience so wonderful. So, what lights you up? The Three Graces call on you to follow your bliss. Does dance bring you joy? Or maybe you’re a whimsical writer or an abstract painter.
Whatever your artistic medium, color your canvas with your secret desires and ooey gooey emotions. Of course, painting an authentic picture of your inner world is a courageous move. The challenge is to keep your heart cracked open when it scares you the most.
With a consistent creative practice and a commitment to expressing your deepest emotions and desires, your masterpiece will begin to unfold. And like magic, you rekindle harmony and good cheer in your own life. Now watch as those positive vibes ripple out into the wider world.
