Dreamscape

dreamscapeI remembered two interesting dreams when I woke this morning and created this image to reflect the dreamscapes they invoked.

The first dream was a discussion of weight loss. I piled on 14 lbs when I started blood pressure tablets last summer, but I’ve weaned myself off them now.  I have lost 10lbs in the past couple of weeks which has pleased me no end, not because I’m obsessed with dieting, but because I want to get healthier and feel fitter.

In the dream I told the people I was with that I was losing weight by filling out a food diary which helped me monitor what I was eating, planning my meals and noting how I felt the next day after particular foods. The people in the dream were very encouraging,  excited and supportive, and urged me to keep following the same path in order to get healthy.  Pretty clear dream, eh?

But the next one was beyond amazing. I dreamed I’d been invited to a shamanic art workshop in Queensland. In the dream, my husband came in to wake me up he brought three letters with him: the first told me that my fare would be paid and I was in tears of gratitude at reading that; the second letter offered me clothing and gear for my travel and participation at the conference; and the third one bought immediate action – a body clearing by my friend in Brisbane, BJ Long, which felt absolutely wonderful, left me feeling light and full of spiritual energy. She was helped by other women who were light beings and incredibly spiritual and nurturing.

Then I realised I’d lost my working stick and one of the women, a shamanic practitioner, offered to get me a replacement from her mother’s magickal stock, providing me with a replacement walking stick in the meantime which felt very light, easy to handle and helped me feel freer in my movements and more confident.

I’m still working on all the implications of the second dream (and any suggestions as to meaning would be appreciated) but it left me feeling incredibly loved and nurtured by the universe and by my friends.

 

Guts Not Fear

stand-up

I created this in response to the growing movement for unity among people and against the small billionaire class trying to get us to live on our knees, instead of standing up on our feet and living life with honour and integrity.  Also did another Mouthy Mo rant today which I enjoy – don’t call myself Mouthy Mo for nothing!

Onwards & Upwards towards a new Community

uprising

I created this image to resonate with the beginnings of a new society, the seeds of which we can see in the women’s marches on Saturday 21st January, the fight back of the National Parks Service.

And I’m including a video I made in relation to the millions of women who marched around the world, solidarity between women, the disabled, Mexicans, African-Americans, Muslims, LGBT community – the 98% of us who have interested in common as opposed to the very tiny minority of billionaire rip-off merchants.

Life – On Your Feet, Not Your Knees

life

I had fun last night with the kaleidoscope function on Toolwiz, plus I discovered a whole heap of symbols I’d missed completely. This is the result: Life. Too often we’re encouraged to play small, but living up to our potential is part of the road of life.  We have one life and it needs to be lived to the full!

Transformation – Hope Not Fear

transformationI created this image from a photo I had of one of Saturn’s moons. It was a triple image of the moon so I merged the images then used different features of Toolwiz to intensify the colour.

I hope the colours of this image inspire hope rather than the fear that political leaders and conventional media try to spread these days.

May our spirits fly with courage, compassion,tolerance and kindness!

Psalm 15

Lord, who can be trusted with power,
and who may act in your place?
Those with a passion for justice,
who speak the truth from their hearts;
who have let go of selfish interests
and grown beyond their own lives;
who see the wretched as their family
and the poor as their flesh and blood.
They alone are impartial
and worthy of the people’s trust.
Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
and their kindness endures forever.

 (The Psalms, translations by Stephen Mitchell)
