As I am a reader, empath, healer, and intuitive, I am now aligning my art and my spiritual work. I'm creating images that are near and dear to my heart. Many of these speak to me of times past, wonder, curiosity, magic and something mystical. While these pieces are not quite finished, I keep seeing them as a single image placed upon an altar to use as a tool for remembrance, honoring, or meditation while you connect with The Divine through prayer.
I love embossed post cards from the turn of century that feature lucky symbols. Luck is what you make it and I'm always lucky. As my Dad says, "Every day's my lucky day!"
I love aligning with the phases of the moon. I've participated in several full moon art challenges. I work with the ebb and flow of the tides and moon. When the moon transitions from full to empty (waning), it's time to give: release things, let go, give away. When the moon transitions from empty to full (waxing), it's time to receive: fill back up again, build, expand, grow. Being aware of the moon's phase has helped me better understand why it seems there are times when I'm flowing or when I'm swimming upstream. And once I realize one way or the other, I can more easily let go and "roll with it baby!"
I've been drawing hearts with wings for years and years. It's a symbol that I just adore. And flowers, well, flowers are just part of who I am. I love to photograph them, gaze at them, identify them, plant them, appreciate them.
The 4 directions are used in sacred ceremony from tribes and ancient peoples of all kinds. The directions align the wheel of life and phases that run in a circle: Seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), Elements (earth, air, fire, water), Phases of life (child, maiden, mother, crone). Remembering the cycles, honoring them is a way to honor your life and the life in all. Everyone of us has the opportunity to pass through these phases. Though, some souls do not, and it is our fortune to live and reach that stage.
Egypt. Ah Egypt. Ancient Egypt. The magical times. Kings, Cleopatra, pyramids, the sacred lotus. My soul holds a deep connection to ancient Egypt. There's so much to say, I don't know where to start. Just know that I will continue to bring you little bits of the Ancient Egyptians through my art, readings, and Misty Valley.
