Within each of us lies the potential for so many possible forms of expression. There are limitless ways in which we may embody the Light, respond to our challenges, and perceive our world.
Part of my personal calling takes form in the role of the Messenger, the Translator, the Bridge between Worlds. In my late teens and twenties, I rejected the idea of myself as a fine artist, despite the naturalness of paintbrush in hand and positive feedback on my work, because I envisioned this as being alone in a room creating something valued by few people, with little impact on the everyday world.
It wasn’t until I connected with my personal spiritual roots that I gained the inner foundation necessary for me to find the ongoing inspiration for and purpose of my art.
My art brings the presence of Higher Dimensional energies more palpably into our 3-dimensional reality, continually teaching me about it through the process. I am not a scholar, researcher, theorist, or theologian. My focus is on being as clear a conduit as possible. I continually discover more about what I am painting by painting it, by opening to the guidance that flows through me afterward regarding it, and by sharing it with others.
I incorporate the originals in spiritual workshops and events, and the mass-produced versions into self-empowering products that help you to tap into, learn about, and benefit from these energies within yourself and the world around you.
I began consciously painting Goddess archetypes in 2003, many of them on re-used kitchen cabinet and bi-fold closet doors. You can find sixteen of the 35 or so Goddess paintings I’ve created so far in Goddess Heart Rising: Paintings, Poems & Meditations for Activating Your Divine Potential. They offer a doorway into self-healing and self-empowerment.
And now you can also work with these images in card form through the Goddess Heart Rising deck, which synthesizes the main themes of each archetype. The deck can be used either separately or in tandem with the Goddess Heart Rising book to help empower you with your goals and challenges, illuminating and inspiring with new perspectives.
I have also developed Goddess Heart Guidance 101, a class to teach you how you can best benefit from the new deck.
And the work continues! My latest pair of paintings, “Gaia” and “Grandmother Moon,” on what were the semi-circular ends of an old oval oak table, will be included in my upcoming book, Goddess Heart Dancing, which will be released in Spring 2018, and at Goddess Extravaganza, which will be held June 23, 2018.
To continue to honor the Sacred Feminine as we move toward this winter’s solstice, I am starting Seven Goddesses for Solstice today, which will share insights and images every three days regarding one of the following: Ngoshkwe/Star Woman, Cereidwen, Persephone, Isis, Mother Mary, Gaia, and Spider Woman, 12/3/17 through 12/21/17.
If you would like to be part of this free, online event, please join me in the new, temporary Facebook Group Seven Goddesses for Solstice, where you can read insights, enjoy images, and respond with your own experiences of these archetypal energies, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Solstice Goddesses” in the subject heading to receive emails of my Facebook posts.
