Boab Dreaming

Boab Sacred Stone

When I lived in Victoria, Australia, I happened to meet a lass who showed me two stones she’d found under a Boab tree in the Northern Territory and which she’d brought home with her.

I imagine that these two stones probably had spiritual resonance for Aboriginal groups in the area where the stones were found and I’m dubious about the ethics of removing them. I’ve always felt that the spirits of these stones were calling to back to Country.

So this is a contribution to offering healing energy to those stones, and to provide a rainbow bridge to journey back to Country in their Dreaming energies.

Art for Sale

I’ve been having great fun fiddling with original prints and adding my own decorations to make each one unique. I’ve decided that, yes, my art is whacko, eccentric and quirky so I might as well dance with my visions and enjoy myself.

I’ve added red ribbon, obsidian cabochons, metal ornaments, glitter (of course!), a focal Tiger’s Eye cabochon, some jasper chips, roses, a butterfly for the transforming power of love,  and a hanger with orange and yellow beads.

Honour and Respect Earth’s Guardian Elders

Honour Earth Guardian Elders

This image is to honour our mountains – the Earth Elder Guardians with their magnificence, spirit energies and role as high energy custodians of this wonderful Planet Earth of ours.

The image is composed of photos of four Earth Elder Spirits superimposed, one over the other.

The foundation image is of ancient rain forest at the base is an image of Wollumbin (Mt Warning) in northern New South Wales.  I have stood on the base of this mountain and its energies are warm and welcoming, imbuing a peace and reflective feeling of support from this wonderful mountain creation. It is sacred to the Bundjalung Aboriginal people who request that people not climb the mountain due to cultural beliefs but this is generally ignored. And no, I have not climbed it, nor would I out of respect for Aboriginal cultural beliefs and to honour a special place on earth that doesn’t need human feet on it to recognise its power and energies.

Above that is an image of Uluru, the great monolith at the centre of Australia, where Aboriginal people also request that people don’t climb their sacred it, but visitors still do. People often take small rocks from Uluru as a memento of their visit, and the centre is deluged with rocks being returned due to the bad luck people have encountered since stealing from this sacred area.

Above that is Mt Shasta in the US.  I don’t know the cultural beliefs of Native American people in relation to climbing this powerful and beautiful mountain.

And finally there’s an image of a mountain in Tibet at sunrise although I don’t know the name of the particular mountain. I do know that the sacred mountain of Kailesh, Tibet, is honoured by people walking circuits of the mountain and not by climbing. Climbing would be considered an act of serious sacrilege.

Although there is no image of it here, I think we all know Mt Everest and the disrespect with which it is treated by climbers who leave litter and human waste on this majestic mountain. Even after the April 2014 disaster when 16 Sherpa guides lost their lives, people demanded that climbing continue because they had paid so much money and completely disregarded the fact that so many local people had been killed.

I believe it is a great pity that so many people see mountains to be “conquered” rather than regarded with respect and esteem as sacred areas of our earth to be lived with in co-existence rather than egotistical domination. So, at the base of the photo are dark clouds which represent the disrespect with which mountain Guardian Elders are all too often regarded.

I have also included with this image one of the Full Moon, which will be happening this weekend, to work with Full Moon energies to release negative energies towards these Guardian Elders, to call for their respect, to remember and align with their sacred, powerful energies and to support connection with the planet as part of our spiritual walk with Mother Earth.

Portals of Mt Shasta

Portals of Mt Shasta

Believe it or not, a photo of Mt Shasta provided the basis for this photo.  Sometimes I look at a photo, it draws me in and then it’s as if the energies or spirits of that place guide me into a final image. In this, Mt Shasta, a sacred mountain in the United States, seemed to me to be offering images of the nature and stone spirits in this mountain with a view of different dimensions offering hope and vision, that we are not bound in this dimension but have threads of light spiralling out through the universe.

I’d also like to thank David, of  SmileCalm for allowing me to use photos he’s taken  in nature.  I am now facing mobility challenges as walking any distance has become quite difficult for me, and I do so appreciate those who can get out into nature allowing me to work with their images in my digital art.
