I didn't know that part of my journey would be to rediscover the Divine feminine within myself and others.
I didn't know that aging, gaining weight, wizening, or giving up bad habits would further that journey.
I didn't know how much I needed my circle of women, until I found them...until I embraced them...until I opened the door and showed them into that
...SACRED place. The one inside of me.
The place where we are all sisters, all connected, all one with the earth.
Traveling here has released me to personal freedom.
And, so can you be....

I've always had a strange, dual relationship with characterized by both awe and fear.
In retrospect, it quite makes sense. The symbolism of the element of water, the emotionality, the flow, were things that I never felt sure of...always felt threatened by. Feelings have the ability to wash me away on a reluctant journey toward things I prefer to ignore. They have the inordinate ability to envelop me in a sense of chaos...lack of control. And, my mind always insists I be in control.
But, my heart, she tells a different tale. She wants experience, sensuality, tactile pleasure, and rollicking sentiment, spiraling from deep within and rocketing out into the sentient world.

Drawing Down the Moon

I've had the moon done for quite some time now. I always find it interesting to hear what others see in it. It was my intention, only, to paint a Blood Moon (a witch's moon). But, many things have leapt from its face at different times to me. What do you see?

So, while the background was done, I just couldn't decide what to add, what she called for, until I looked at it, sitting on the easel, the other day. And, it just screamed at me of the Drawing Down the Moon ceremony. Perhaps, I was inspired by celebrating Beltane with my sisters. Perhaps, it was the lusty May moon in the sky. Perhaps, it was divine whispering.

It doesn't really matter, the inspirational source. I've come to understand that intuitive painting is just about listening to that intuition and following its advice.

And, in some tangible way, its taught me to listen to my own intuition about things outside of career, my relationships, my life....and to follow that internal whisper (although, sometimes, quite frankly, its a shout) to its desired end. Surprise! The more I follow that guidance, the better my life becomes. Who'd have guessed?

Life is a blessing. Live it.
