12 Nights Of Solstice..Night 4

 

A time of traveling into the deep places of remembering. This is a time of connecting
with your inner knowledge. This is a time of moving into the realms beneath the surface, visiting the caverns of the ancestors. Gifting and honoring energies will guide you as you move through the depths and into the night sky. Finding the support that guides you along your way to celebrating the deep darkness and the return of the sun…the Winter Solstice.

 

 

As I continue my 12 Nights Of Solstice Journey I allowed my mind to wander……as seems to be the case with me and my journey, words begin to emerge, spiral and form…

 

This key

Reveled itself to me.

A gift.

And now with key in hand,

My journey continues….

As I wander, 

I wonder,

What is this a key to.

What secrets await me as I 

Continue on.

I Am The Holder Of The Key

I am a Seeker of The Lock………….and this stone,

it’s shape significant.

I await its message.

Key….and Stone 

 

Then, with my key and stone in hand, I emerged into the dark night…

12 Nights Of Solstice .. Night 3

Welcome to Third Night of Solstice,

A time of traveling and following the heart path.
This is a time of connecting with your inner expression.
This is a time of finding your way between the veil,
and through the edges of time seeking assistance in the reflective surface.
Finding the gifts that will illuminate and guide you along your way to
celebrating the deep darkness and the return of the sun…
the Winter Solstice.

After My nightly soul-stroll and meditation, I found myself drawn to my paints….the gift…. a key 🗝

12 Nights Of Solstice..Night One

Cat Caracelo popped up in my FB newsfeed as a sponsor ad a week or so ago. I felt an immediate pull, so I clicked on her link 12 Nights Of Solstice  I am so happy I did so.It’s just what I need as I enter into this winter and new year.

I’m excited on so many levels to be participating on this journey. I feel stirrings within. An Awakening is occurring  and I’m ready to embrace this part of me and my journey. I’m excited to discover a new inner light..I ‘see’ a forging of old and new, and this excites me.

Last nights first mediation and Solstice prompt inspired this painting and tanka…

A time of deep darkness and the turning of the wheel. This is the time of nesting, resting and journeying…This is a time of connecting with your inner light.This is a time of finding your way along the path to the longest night,the Winter Solstice.”

 

Creativity Is My Healer 🎨

“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” ― ~Erich Fromm~

My my first response to this was……….

Then I indulged myself with a bit of art therapy….it’s good medicine ❤ Yesterday found me playing around again with the medium of fluid painting……my end result didn’t come out as I expected but love it none-the-less 😊

Today I painted using brushes and q-tips…….I used a smaller canvas for this one……it doesn’t seem that long ago I allowed fear of ‘perfection’ to stop me from painting……letting that fear go and just allowing myself to enjoy being creative is so healing,….unleashing my inner artist so freeing!! 🎨

Creative Therapy 🎨 📝

A few weeks, I came across an ad for a paint class one of the local businesses in town is going to be hosting. Fluid Painting it was called. Intrigued, I headed on over to YouTube to see what I could discover about this medium. I quickly got hooked, and having much of what I needed to dabble on my own, this was my first attempt.

I decided to make another for my daughter for her birthday…and this was the end result for that one ….. I’ve decided to sign up and take the class. I’m finding this a wonderful outlet for my #arttherapy and want to learn all I can ‘live’. Im excited to be stepping out of my comfort zone and learning something new….

In the meantime….I’m also spending more time digging through the gray matter of my mind, putting more thoughts to paper as I ready myself for the writers workshop I’ll be attending in a few weeks………as I was looking through my FB memories this morning, I came across a quote I shared from a book I was reading 5 years ago…..funny that at that time, I was a few weeks shy of starting the first Sandbox Writing Challenge……I’ve come a long way since then…and I most definitely have come to love the wonder of Myself and who I’m growing to be.
