Creativity in Art and ~ The WOMAN

On one rainy afternoon  I wanted to paint, yet as reached up into the top of my cupboard for a new canvas, out popped among them was this old painting I did when I was messing about one day quite a few years ago now.  

I had never really liked the painting, and have never hung it, but I had hidden it away among my new canvas’ thinking one day I would paint over it. 

Rainbow Angel.. Some of my more abstract art I did several years ago

I looked hard at it and thought well today is the day to rework it..  And as I painted I jotted down my thoughts as different feelings raced through my mind as I altered it to become the finished new painting you see below at the bottom of this post.. 

Here are the words that came to me while painting and when I had finished it.. They speak of the returning feminine energies, and how each of us hold these energies whether we are female or male…    So I give you.. 

The Woman

 

The Woman with closed eyes sits in the circle of dancing light

She breathes in her femininity as she let go of all material form

Naked, she pulls around her energy cloak of rainbows as she prepares her Earth Song

She holds out her hands softly at her sides.

As she rocks gently back and forth, listening to her beating heart.

It matches its rhythm with that of her Earth Mother.

Generations before her have awaited

this time, when the feminine will rise again.

Their Compassion, love and strength will bring back the light from the shadows of the past

~~

The Woman focuses her inner vision upon the Stars, and her low hum begins to fill the vortex of space surrounding her Aura.

With Dancing spectrum’s that spin in a Kaleidoscope of changing hues. Mixing and blending, the Woman weaves each thread with the notes of Love.

Each Chord a blend of forgiveness to each deed against the feminine energies. Her face is still, almost translucent as she let go of Anger, bitterness and sorrow.

The woman is no longer tied to the Earth but becomes detached from All Fear

Replenishing her emotions only with Love , Acceptance and Gratitude

The Vortex spins ever faster as time slips away, She gives thanks for all she has been and to all she is yet to become.

Knowing infinity will hold her forever in the moment of Now..

The Woman ~ Feminine Energies ~ Painting in Acrylics 40cms x 30 cms

If I am late answering any of your comments here and catching up with you.  It is because I am pursuing my own Earth Song…  Enjoying Summer, Family time of special Birthdays,  and of course keeping up with my Garden posts of which you will find at Dreamwalker’s Garden

Beauty is Within us All.

During the night I awoke, and wrote so many thoughts down as I tried to sift through the debris cluttering up my mind as I had woken up yesterday to the radio in the morning of the terrible news of the London  Flats Tower Block Inferno.. 

Sometimes we only see the harsh exterior of the world, through the lens of those whose camera’s try to tell us this is our reality. As it seems the media flit from one tragedy to another around our world. And yet amidst all of this tragedy I am witnessing so much LOVE.. 

The Cube Chatsworth Flower show 2017 click image  to take you to the link for more information.

 

For most of the day, I sort out solitude in quiet contemplation and prayer to send out my love to all who were experiencing grief, and loss of their loved ones friends and neighbours.  I also kept sending to our WordPress Friend Irene.. Even my husband said I looked liked a lost soul, as I seemed to feel so many hearts bursting with tears.. 

In the evening we had company, and as we discussed the terrible events. But what was emerging  was that how brilliant it was to see the London community come together.. It mattered not what race, religion, or if they were Poor or Well off.. Each story that I had seen unfold told of many hearts giving to others that in that moment were in need of love and healing..

Looking through the tiny holes in the granite to the garden held inside the cube.

Some gave money, others gave clothes and food. Lots who didn’t know what else to give, just handed out huge HUGS.. To comfort those still awaiting news of relatives and friends..

The images I have chosen to accompany this post I took on my visit to spend the day at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show not far from my old village where I grew up at the end of last week . If you click the Chatsworth link you can see the many gardens that won medals etc.. It was such a beautiful Day. One that will last long within my memory ..

Foxglove inside the cube

The Foxglove happens to be among one of my favourite flowers, And I have several shades of them in my front garden. I do not have them in my back garden where my granddaughter plays, as they are poisonous..  Strange as  I write of the heart, that these flowers in particular hold chemicals that affect the heart,  Digitalis is poisonous; it can be fatal even in small doses.

We are all us being fed toxins that affect our hearts one way or another, as we allow ourselves to be led into division whether that be through politics, religion, or race.. 

Foxglove inside the cube, another pin hole view inside the cube.

So I choose the share some of the memories of my Beautiful Day, as I thought these pictures apt, Showing us that no matter how dark our world may seem or how stark it appears on the outside, no matter what chaos we face. When we join together in Unity and we really Look within, and when it matters the most and others are in crisis, the beauty within comes spilling out… For We all hold this Beauty  of Love deep within ourselves..  This has been echoed so beautifully in the wonderful prayers and responses to Amy in my re-blog of her appeal for healing to send to Irene..

 Many thanks to all of you who have held Irene in your prayers. Amy says she is slowly responding, but far from well as she is still in an induced sleep..

Isn’t it just a shame it takes great tragedies to bring that kindness and love out of ourselves..  This brought home again, just how Love unites us All..

My love and heartfelt prayers are being sent to all in West London who have suffered so much loss..

Love and Blessing

 Hymn to Annûmara

 

 

 

Are You Listening?

 

Have you listened to the Silence?

The symphony of the stars

Can you hear the music beat within our Earth Mothers Heart?

It’s Time: Time to join the orchestra of her Song

And sing the long-forgotten notes of Dreamers

Be not afraid of standing alone and singing solo

For we are many joining in Harmony

Standing up in Unity of our forgotten heritage

Remembering the tune which has been deeply buried and obscured

We now open our hearts, finding our voices

To sing the forgotten Truth

Have you Listened to the Silence?

Has it not touched your heart

Illuminating your soul as the layers fall away

Revealing who we’ve always been

And who we are to become

Can you not feel the vibration?

Stirring those strands of your DNA

Do you not feel your molecular rivers?

Flowing within the molten heart of Compassion

Use your breath, as you breathe deeper into the New Dawn upon your Horizon

See how the Golden Glow of unification of open hearts dissolves  the shadows of fear

Its Time: Time to awaken, tune up the instruments that you are

For you are each an integral part within the orchestra of life

Its Time: Time to play the melody you came here to Sing

So, open your hearts to the love your Earth Mother has always given

For each breath, she gave you

Every sip of water Sprang forth from her springs

Each seed she grew to nourish you

Every forest she gave for shelter, food and warmth

So, listen to the Silence……………..

For our Earth Mother is calling us to remember your Ancient Ancestry

For we are not separate…… WE ARE ONE

Have you Listened?

And did you Hear her Song.

I wrote this on May 2nd.. It came during the night, as I had to sit up and ‘listen’ as the words wrote themselves… I felt I had to share them..

For it TIME..

Festival of Beltane

A water-colour of Spring I painted

I remember clearly back in my junior school years the May Day celebrations. The First day of May was made more special because this was the day I started out on my Earth Journey this time around.  

Learning to dance around the Maypole was part of our village school tradition.. We would learn the various dances, weaving in and out to plat the brightly coloured ribbons in spiders webs and close weave patterns .Girl and Boy alternatively skipping around in and over each other to the lively Maypole music.

This is the beautiful Village I still call home even though I now no longer live there

  

 

The May Queen represents the ‘Maiden’ aspect the Feminine, beauty and youth. Living as I do now in Robin Hood country. One of the best known maids is Maid Marian. which could be denoted as manifestation of the Maiden Goddess of the Greenwood..  I am also reminded of the Green Man. and all he represents. 

The Maypole is the symbol of returning life connecting to living matter of Earth, the colourful ribbons and dances which weave in a spiral represent the eternal spirals of energy which come from the Sun..As we danced around the pole we would then unwind reversing the dance symbolising the returning of energy to the Universe in a never ending cycle or loop.. Of course back then as children we had no idea of its origins we just danced and enjoyed the lively music  and had no concept of its Pagan history. 

Once upon a time Maypoles stood upon most village greens but the Roundheads and Reformation put a stop to anything that bore a mark of Paganism or Popery.

I wasn’t until Charles II that the Maypole was reinstated and the tradition was taken up again on village greens..

May Day is the Ancient festival of Beltane. Beltane was the start of Summer and on the eve of May 1st Bonfires would be lit to herald in the return of fertility to the land. Fires meaning Life and Transformation,

One tradition was that young men and women would leap over the flames of the fires to get husbands and wives. Married women would leap to help them be more fertile and conceive and those who just wanted good luck would also jump. 

It was also the practice to drive cattle between two bonfires which was to help ensure a good milk yield ..In our present day lots of our traditions are being lost and we have lost much respect for Nature. In our village as children the community spirit held us all together we knew each other and would go out of our way to help a neighbour . A post I did previously  on this subject can be found here.

Many have lost touch with Nature,forgetting names of wild flowers and herbs, and natural healing properties that natures larder holds. 

Those ancient rituals not only served to honour the gifts Nature freely offered, but they also served in lifting the community up to a higher level of consciousness.Bringing Unity and Oneness as they each pulled together helping one another. 

The rites of passage are honoured throughout many cultures and our Ancient indigenous brothers and sisters knew that to honour our Earth Mother by living in balance within her seasons also meant that there would be a better chance for all to succeed and prosper. Some thing I think many have forgotten how to do today..  For many see Nature without a soul as science seems to be meddling within its boundaries which are having a knock on effect to how Nature itself is now reacting.. 

We are witnessing more storms, more unseasonal weather patterns, and I just hope that we wake up soon to the damage we are doing to our beloved Mother that has held us in her eternal arms for so long..We forget the power nature holds until we are faced with her floods, winds and storms.

Wishing you all a Happy Month of May

Blessings

Breaking the Loop!

 I woke up one night  at the end of March with these words imprinted into my mind.

We are surfing the waves to rise above the undertows.  So, as my journal is always beside my bed, I reached for pencil  I waited… I found myself breathing deeper as I waited for the words to write themselves.. Below is the result..

Breathing deeper into the bells that chime

Embodying Peace, Pulling in the Light Divine

Embracing the Power within our Spiritual Form

We are riding the waves as we face a New Dawn

~~

Invest in your mind, let it be ruled by your heart

Our survival depends upon the Love it imparts

Envision a world holding hands in total Peace

What we imagine, we create and unleash

~~

So let go of Fear, that we create as hardware

Discover and learn through breath,… be aware

We are poised at the time with great ‘Shifts’ in consciousness

This is our ‘Time’ within the cycle of ‘The Mother Goddess’

~~

We have a duty to share what we know

Let us sow the seeds of Love that will grow

Look at our lives, step outside of Fear

Know that our thoughts create a New Frontier

~~

Discover the journey of how to become Free

Break the Loop, and take Responsibility

Have the courage to Energise a safer New World

Awaken to our Power, Let Love Unfurl..

Breaking the Loop -Written March 26th 2017

I have since created this image using the Mandala I previously painted. And then with a little digital art I added bits and pieces.

May we all experience Ecstasy of the Heart  to Live from our Hearts.

Universal Eye of Truth.

We are the New Earth.

A painting in Acrylic..  of a Hare  I did earlier this year.  I want to convey the message of my poem below.. And say.. 

Be at One with yourself

Be at one with the world

Be at One with Nature

And see your life unfurl

Close your eyes and imagine

The beginnings of a New Earth,

And Open your eyes to your beauty

Breathe in and give Birth.

divider

For you are One and part of the Whole

Not a separate Unit , but a Beautiful Soul

United within the One Divine love

And part of that cosmic hub.

Share your love along with your Light

And Rejoice in Gratitude

Use your sight

To see a world in Beauty and Grace

divider

You are stronger than you think you know

Spread a little Love where ever you go

Shower your peace and sprinkle your heart

Into the rivers of life send a ripple a spark

Be Calm, knowing all is well

Keep breathing in Peace for inside it dwells

divider

Know you are where you are meant to be

Open your eyes

Come on now See

For we are ONE and it’s time to Unite

Stop all your hating, and judging and strife

Find your heart and clear out your mind

Seek out yourself

And Wisdom you’ll find

divider

Let go of torments and allow the Joy in

Come on now people

It’s time to begin

Be One with yourself

Be One with the world

Be One with nature

And Let the Universe Spin

For the Spiral is turning and

Peace will Win..

You can find out more about the Hare Totem Here   among other things the hare totem depicts that

 “Many fables and tales speak of Hare’s quickness of foot. Hare people must learn to be patient and simultaneously be ready to react in a timely manner and advance in leaps when necessary.”

I have been busy this week in the allotments.. And as soon as the rain clears again this is where you will find me.

Have a good  week all of you

Love and Blessings

Mothering Sunday, Spreading LOVE and LIGHT.

Flowers from my Children.

Today is Mothering Sunday here in the UK.  And while we share our Love with our Mothers, or in remembrance of them.  I wish also to share the love for the Mother of us ALL.. Our Earth Mother.. Without whom these beautiful flowers would not have grown to be given with love today.. 

I also wish to share this poem I wrote in 2012.. As we share love and Unity around our globe.. Never has there been a better time to spread the light.. And in doing so each of us can help create a better world.. 

Also I  want to introduce you to Tom’s Blog. Beyond The Sphere   Where he is sharing one of his creations, on  post entitled Sharing The Light  

 He invites us to share his Candle creations  upon our blogs as we spread the Light around the world as we embrace the Lighter Side of Life as we step out of the Fear… I have chosen this one.  I hope you go and choose yours, and let yourself be known to him.. I will add this one to my side bar later.. 

I know I have a few comments yet to moderate, and apologies if you clicked a previous post in your email on Mothering Sunday  that had an error message.. As I pressed Publish before I intended.

 I hope you will have patience with me in replying and attending to moderate comments today, as I spend family time.  Ok here is the poem..

Enjoy your day whether you are Mothers, Fathers, Brothers or Sisters.. For we Are ONE. 

 Earth Mother

We hear your cries beneath our feet

As upwards your blood rushes to greet

A New Dawn which begins to break

Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother We Awake

~~

We feel your tears as you cleanse your own eyes

We feel your winds as your sky heaves sighs

Each day spins faster as you vibrate

Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother We Awake

~~

We are united with a common goal

For we are One together One Soul

Each of us bound by the cords we make

Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother We Awake

~~

We shall let go of Greed and Fear

And it may be hard as we shed our tears

But our love for you we’ll never forsake

Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother We Awake.

~~

Our Wake-up calls have almost but gone

As we remember how bright we once shone

Renew our Hearts, teach us to Give and not Take

Earth Mother, Oh Earth Mother..

AWAKE!

PEACE! and Prayers

When I need to send my thoughts out into the world I often light a candle upon my dressing table and remove all of my little crystals one by one as I ask for prayers to reach those in my thoughts..

Sweet Angels gather around my bed

Please take up the names I have said.

For healing thoughts tonight I’ve given

Send them swiftly back to heaven.

~

So that a host of healing love

Can shower down from those above

To all the names my prayers beseech

Bring love and comfort that they seek

I lay them down, sending my prayers to all who are in need.. and I then draw a circle back in the sand dish, as I add them all back again. Know each thought, each person an angel will have touched..

 

Dear Angel whose light’s so bright,

Help mankind see his plight.

And help him balance all his ways

Or numbered too, are all his days.

~

To all who suffer and who cannot cope,

Wrap in your wings, bring them hope.

To all the animals in our realm,

And lastly let’s not forget ourselves.

~

For your protection so too I seek,

Bring us courage, help the weak.

To grow in strength in your pure love

Knowing you look down from high above.

~

And now as bird song sings outside

I feel my heart it swells in pride.

That you have listened to my plea

And Healing too you’ve given to me.

 

I often listen to music such as this to heal my inner spirit..

Sending Love to All  in  conflict,turmoil, grief and heartache, where ever you are in our world,

May we all keep sending Love, as we do not allow ourselves to give way to Fear and Terror.

Love and Gratitude.
