Sacred Spheres of Self Realization
My life has been tossed upside down this month. After a lot of bumps and ups and downs I’m taking steps to know myself better. And as a result I’m on my own for awhile on a journey of self realization.
This big leap into the next phase of my life has inspired a new series of paintings. Last week as my show, Red Shoes, wrapped, and the realities of the next few months settled into place I turned to my trusty Triple Goddess Cards for insight.
I drew “The Journey Home” which resonated deeply with where I am currently. This card talks about the sacredness of the number seven and ecstasy of self realization, representing the Chariot from the traditional tarot. The card discusses the Seven Spheres of TranscenDance and I was immediately inspired to create a series of painting to kick off this time of exploration. In addition to discussing these seven spheres the card is linked to the ancient Bird Goddess. I have resonated with the medicine of birds for a long time and incorporating bird magic into this project felt like a perfect fit.
So for seven days I drew a card from my Bird Cards deck and listened deeply to the message of the card and created a painting. To further explore the vibration of each bird messenger I listened to the bird song while I painted. It was really soothing to paint to birds singing and I think it influenced how I worked. All of the messages I received were extremely inspiring and so I wanted to share each painting and its message with you.
