Sacred Bird Symbolism Channeled Through Visionary Art
It’s been a while since I’ve shared paintings I’ve created, but recently I’ve been immersed in creative inspiration with these latest two painting commissions and find myself emerging from their completion with a lot of fuel to that imaginative fire within.
These two paintings are meant as a pair, each embodying their own individual energy, but to compliment one another.
Essence is what I always aim to bring forth even when someone provides a photo of their animal companion or an animal they desire painted, I truly try to bring out what’s inside onto the entire canvas so that their inner beauty is felt in all ways beyond just their physical beauty.
It was really wonderful to work with bird energy, since so much of it is in my life and I love what they symbolize as a whole, carrying messages from Great Spirit. But in this pair I was also working with Yin and Yang energy (or better yet, that Sacred Feminine and Masculine energy) and specific birds that my client desired in representation.
How to interpret them and the inspiration that would channel through was up to me and the inspired moment.
What we have is the lovely Mountain Bluebird, which is a song bird, representing the Sacred Feminine in the first piece titled “Song of Life”.
And then we have the vibrant Rainbow Lorikeet representing the Sacred Masculine in the second piece titled “Rainbow Journey”.
Here is a little about the symbolism of each of these beautiful and sacred birds.
Bluebird embodies the knowing that all things are birthed from within you and are to be shared with others. This includes fulfillment, joy, finding happiness in the little things as much as the large, creating time to enjoy life, movement to new levels of being, gentle grace, awakening of the inner child and the need for playfulness, confident contentment, innate beauty, and love found inside oneself for all things, others, and for oneself.
And as a “blue song bird” they represent creative self expression and an empowered Throat Chakra.
Rainbow Lorikeet embodies the ability to seek out what nourishes and fulfills you, encouraging you to nurture the beautiful being that you are and to honor your inner beauty, respect your individuality, and embrace the things that fuel your essence along your journey.
They represent balanced perspective to see and respect all viewpoints, a love for and joy to share in communication, expressing the colorful aspects of your soul to share with the world, the active ability to go after anything you want, individual vibrancy and playfulness that is to be honored and expressed, enjoying life but in balance and not in extreme intoxication, savoring life and pleasures, creative solutions to challenges and goals, the opportunity to always create radically new and exciting things, transformation, transcendence, crossing boundaries, venturing into the the unknown, recognition of a soul mate, and of course connection to the rainbow and all that it symbolizes.
Rainbow Lorikeets bring the ability to live your life well.
