I created this from an image I had of rocks on the Jurassic Coast of the UK, plus an image super-imposed of a photo I took of a spider when I was living in Woodenbong, on the rim of an ancient volcanic caldera.high up in the Border Ranges of northern New South Wales, Australia.
The spider was weaving its web against the window at night and the flash of my camera caught a very good image of it at work. With the stones colourised behind it, this image reinforces for me the image of Spider as weaving the web of the universe.
Here’s a photo of my altar to my totem, a spider. It is customary not to name the exact spider and I connected with her when I did a soul retrieval. I had to tie a prayer string around my left wrist until it disappeared and my totem would have arrived. So I tied the knot tightly, walked out to my car and the knot had disappeared already. My spider totem appeared, her presence so strong that all the spiders in our home came out to greet her – big, middle and small spiders. Even my husband noticed the spiders everywhere. We were also living in the appropriately named Cobweb Cottage at the time!
My totem sits on my right shoulder. The drum on the wall was blank but once my totem appeared, I painted the spider image and it was amazing how the tone of the drum changed once I’d put my energy into it. I also created the Spider Woman painting. Around the drum are my beaters, rattles, a rain stick and a pair of Aboriginal clap sticks (in the red and black bag) which I sourced from an ethical outlet in the Kimberley region of north-west Western Australia. You need to be careful about buying Aboriginal art in Australia as a lot of it is cheap copies from Indonesia. But my clap sticks are the real deal.
I was feeling tired yesterday afternoon so sloped off to bed for a kip.
I had a dream where I was in a room looking at others in a bigger room for a festive occasion. For some reason, I felt that I would be alone in my life and was quite resigned to it. I entered the bigger room and a younger man there started dancing with me, but then queried me about my health history. I talked at length to him and he told me I was lucky as he was a master healer and usually charged £400 per session. As he said this, he put his arms around me, held me in a wonderful embrace, I fell into a deep sleep feeling safe and protected, and woke feeling as if a whole heap of crap from my past had melted away.
This is pretty self-explanatory and one of the reasons that I’ve posted it is because it had such an emotional effect on me. I have lots of dreams, often don’t remember them, but when I do and they leave an emotional residue, then I know I need to note that dream down and work with it.
It’s also been my experience that if you don’t write a meaningful dream down you’ll likely forget it. And when you do return to dreams over time, it’s surprising how you forget them and the impact they had.
With this dream I can remember clearly the loving, healing, supportive energies I received and I keep hugging myself at the memory!
This image was developed from a photo of rock layers. I’ve added in the images of birds as they are symbolic of communication and flight into the unknown as well as an image of the Moon representing the Mysteries resonant in life on Mother Earth.
It seems to me that the Spirit of Rock, whatever form it takes on Planet Earth, is the holder of information throughout the eons of Earth’s existence. Rock Elders are guardians of wisdom through the ages, something we can often overlook as rock communication is subtle and symbolic rather than the oral language we are more accustomed to use to communicate.
The green in this image reflects growth, healing and continuity, something that is easy to overlook given the turmoil on Earth at present. The pink colour relates to the power of Love and its transcendence above the mundane.
I have just discovered this piece of digital art which, again, I’d created in the late evening and forgotten about the next day. I looked at this and thought: “I’m definitely off with the fairies” but I’m having great fun flitting around the cosmos!
In late 1995 I had a Tarot reading where the lady predicted I’d do a short painting workshop and then start drawing images for people. At the time I thought she was barking mad and I’d done my dough because I was utterly hopeless at art. But shortly afterwards, in February 1996, I attended a 2-day mandala workshop and I was off and running art-wise: I found that my forte in art is symbols. I started off with mandalas for friends and then for personal orders. Then I started creating what I called “SoulSong” art which portrayed the colours and shapes I see around people. And now I’ve returned to creating symbols for people through digital art.
I am therefore now offering customised digital art for individuals. You can order and pay on PayPal and all I’ll need you to do is send me a photo so I can tune into you and create your own piece of digital art. The cost is US$25 and, when it’s completed, I’ll e-mail you the image. You can then print it out, or get it printed onto canvas or as a poster via one of the many websites offering this sort of service. Please remember that I live in North Cyprus so there are time zones to take into account when waiting for me to get back to you. If you decide to buy digital art for yourself, please send me a photo of yourself at:
PERSONALISED DIGITAL ART – $25
If you’d like it framed in plain beige board with protective envelope and posted, it will be an extra US $20. Please note too postage from Turkey takes two weeks and getting the print framed takes another week as I can only catch up with the framer at the local market. The button below is for the $45 option.
PERSONALISED DIGITAL ART – FRAMED AND MAILED – $40
I created this with a blank canvas and a photo I took of a pansy with a centre which looks like an eagle in flight. An eagle aloft not only gives you perspective, it shows how strong you are when you following your own songlines home to your soul. When your heart sings, when you are in alignment with your heart, your spirit soars and you feel at peace.That’s the essence of this piece of digital art.
