The journey of channeling #7 in my new series, Universal ARKitecture has been another interesting experience. Since I was working with very ancient energy of origins, it was much more earthy and heavier, but the key was in channeling an integration of this energy in a new and light way for the now.
And so, The Mystic, as it is titled, was birthed and it depicts the endangered Galapagos Tortoise, which came through as the next animal spirit guide to share a message. It kneels on the mystical Earth while communing with a Tree of Life that has a Buddha face carved into it. Between the two, a small illuminated star sparks enlightenment of new energy emerging that will transform the Earth.
I had the honor of visiting the Galapagos Islands a couple of years ago and to spend magical time with these ancient souls. They are amazing to say the least, and hold the wisdom of the ages.
I love how not only are they so connected to the Earth’s origins and energy, but also, to me, are very extraterrestrial in nature. I was thrilled that the Galapagos Tortoise was wanting to channel through for #7 – which in numerology holds a very magical vibration as the sacred spiritual number and ‘the energy of the mystics’ – not only because of its divinely aligned energy, but because of its connection to my Russian Tortoise, Gaia.
I knew at some point each of my beloved animal companions would show up in a painting due to the energy they emanate. Nestor and Joy had already shown up in #5 Once in a Blue Moon and when I received that the tortoise was coming next, I wondered if it would literally be Gaia. And when I checked in, I got that Gaia’s energy would be represented, but in a form she energetically identifies more as. Since her energy is SO big, and she has no concept that she is a tiny little tortoise, it was synchronously appropriate she would channel through as a Galapagos Tortoise instead. And her ancient connections, having the name Gaia, and being very extraterrestrial in nature, made perfect sense as to how this would come through.
Gaia communicates much differently and I found the channeling of this painting to come through in pieces and more slowly and deliberately, as well as at times challenging to ensure I was allowing the energy and not getting in its way. Tortoises teach us patience, balance with the rhythms of life, and steadfast deliberate strength, to name a few things. To read more about what they teach us see the article below.
Synchronously, this painting came about as I recently cut my hair even shorter and felt it partially symbolic of returning to my origins and emanating a core empowerment of natural inner light in a bigger way, which coincided with this creation and its energy. It also coincided with embracing greater depths of one of Lee Harris’ themes for the month of October in his energy forecast – that of vulnerability.
These two new birthings – The Mystic and my new personal expression – both share this integration of ancient and new energy channeled in a form that mirrors the collective now.
I wrote an article, I shared earlier this year, about the origins and energy of our ancient Earth Mother, her connection with turtles/tortoises, as well as shared how Gaia’s name came about through the Gayatri Mantra – all synchronously tied. It shares not only insights into these, but how we can learn from each. The Mystic painting holds the symbolism expressed in this article. Read it here:
The Mystic original is available for purchase and will be up on my website soon, along with Gem of the Emerald Forest. Prints will be available shortly for both. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries and orders.
Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. ~Buddha
Connecting and Creatively Channeling the World Through Travel
I have always been an explorer and adventurer by heart and have been drawn to experience the richness of the many beautiful people, animals, countries and sacred sites across the globe. This is something in my DNA and soul that is undeniably loud and constantly consistent since always. I love to absorb the potent energy and feel the resonance in places far outside of my little world at home and find it food for the soul and providing access to expansive evolution and greater inspirational expression. Whether physically traveling in the 3D world or traversing the sanctums of inner and inter-dimensional travel…it’s food to the soul for me. The experiences I have been honored to share have been integral to my growth and the work I do, in gaining greater compassion, broader perspectives, transcending limiting boundaries and beliefs and adding depth and diversity to my understanding and embodiment.
Most of my travels are for purposes of healing on personal and collective levels and therefore are usually spiritually focused. I always intend to be guided to the perfect journey that encompasses my intentions, supports my dietary needs and draws the perfect experiences and connections, synchronously. And I have found that my journeys are filled with magic and unfold seamlessly and divinely due to following my intuitive guidance. My focuses are to aid the energy of the Earth, integrate the energy within myself and to bring back the messages, energy and visions I receive to imbue into my paintings and work. As a vegan, and spiritually as well as physically focused person on enjoying the totality of human experience in pleasures of food, fun, learning, adventure and sacredness, I love to relay that the world is full of possibilities for everyone and there are no limits to what you can create as joy in your own way no matter where you are.
Realizing that not everyone has the opportunity to travel, see and feel the treasures that inhabit the Earth we share, I always love to share the photos from my journeys and always include collective healing work as my focus of each journey. A way to bring a little piece of the beauty of the world to everyone, whether through photos shared on facebook, through the creations that channel through as a direct result, or the healing work I am drawn to provide in service – all embodying the totality of experiences I embrace.
Over the years I have been blessed to travel to exotic and sacred portal areas such as: Egypt, Peru, Ireland, England, France, Italy, Greece, Thailand, Bimini, Bali, Costa Rica, Mayan Riviera, Hawaiian and Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, Bahamas, Caribbean, Canada and several sacred areas in the US. I actually just returned from Bali, which was amazing and one of my favorite journeys. It is in my heart to continue these explorations of heart and soul whenever I am able to, and receive guidance to, and to always imbue the transformational experiences into everything I share for the highest good of all.
