Wishes! Wishes! and More Wishes!
Being a part of Turning the Wheel Missoula’s Enchanted Forest was a Full Body YES! and then the cherry on top was the event going smooth as butter. Thank you to everyone who came out to see the magic at the Enchanted Forest and participate in the wonder of my Wishing Well Cavern Installation.
The actual installation looked even better than I imagined in my head. I projected images of water I had collected from all over the world, and it completely transformed the white and silver Mirror Paintings into a cohesive space that completely immersed people in the waters of the Earth.
In addition to looking amazing I felt so good about the interaction and participation I experienced with everyone who came to visit me as the Wishing Well Woman. Each person was invited to make a wish through a series of simple, and embodying activities. First they would choose a stone to imbue with their wish. Then they would choose a Mirror Painting to reflect, amplify, and empower their wish. The dances and movements people came up with made me want to weep. I never expect much when making a request that is quite outside the cultural norm for interacting with a piece of art, but people really engaged, dropping deeply into the exercise. I could really feel the authenticity and sincerity as each person chose a Mirror to interact with, while also holding their wish in their mind.
Once they finished their dance we finished the wish by adding some “Starlight Magic,” as well all know the power of wishing stars, and then some “Earth Energy” to ground the wish back to each individual. Finally they dropped the wish into the well, another mythic way of manifesting our wishes here on Earth. I felt so blessed to witness and guide each wish, and I truly believe some powerful magic was conjured up in my watery little installation.
Now all of the Mirrors Paintings, which have been powered up with the most wonderful wishes from all the visitors of the Enchanted Forest are for sale. Each radiates powerful wishing energy, and will sure to fill any space with wild potential. All of the Mirrors will be posted with prices on my instagram, and you can send me a message there if one of them calls to you. I can’t wait to send each of the beauties out into the world to beam good energy wherever they go. Even if you can’t afford to adopt a Mirror Painting I would love love love to hear which is your favorite and why it resonates with you in the comments.
Be well and may all your wishes come true!
