In general terms, this relates to allowing an ease in all measures of stepping forward. These for example can look like; completing as much preparation as your able for a meeting, in the moment presence in an old situation, reminding yourself of forgiveness value, giving yourself proper rest. Stepping forward is a peaceful declaration within self to redirect energy for a longer term goal and or better use. Consider function before form.
With this in mind, how do you want to take forward steps? As most of us are also in a readjusting of values sphere, take a beat and consider. Softly engage with the future you are walking towards. Be kind, utilise manageable chunks of information and take breaks from being ‘on’.
Sending you good vibes and safe passage throughout August.
This piece is titled, Stars and Water. An alchemical depiction of nature in transition. This work is about surrendering to change. The star in the centre is still a star, yet everything around it keeps moving, in and out of form.
The colour palette for this piece is particular to the warmth of dignity, stretch and communication. Similar in example to the 曆butterfly effect; in that small adjustments in the flow of the star, filter through surrounding energy, swirling with both light and dark. When mixed and transformed, the star is still a star. Astrology, healing, clairvoyance all teach us, that we are an interaction with the universe, through each other, our planet, our stars and the cosmic body it sits in, the Milky Way to the larger Cosmos. Our essence as humans in balance, naturally vibrates in and out of ideas, places, perceptions. Valuing the interaction of us with the universe as opposed to us ‘ruling’ the universe, creates a moment within our mental landscape to adjust without lack, sacrifice or misconception. Supporting the star to move and hold its essence.
Silver in this palette, was chosen with bronze wax, to show the beauty before joining, the elements igniting a creative spark. An illumination around the star.
I’m sharing this work today, in support of your creativity, day to day, step by step, toward healing solutions and integrity for our communities. Interact with care, grace and awareness for us to have better treatment of ourselves and each other.
When we are placed in the position of growth, like now, when we may least feel like it, when trust is tested. Crab energy shares the wisdom of vulnerability being the most direct path in regards to growth. A symbol of tough exterior and defensive behaviour, Crab also teaches that while resilience is important its equally important to honour our soft, malleable and delicate self. Crab also due to its particular anatomy avoids oncoming threats and obstacles with ease. Communicating through their pincers, sharing the perspective that while others are here, ready to lend their support, only you can truly help yourself move through challenges arising from life’s changes.
A reminder of protecting our whole selves, even though we move internally through emotions, mentally through perspectives and externally from place to place, to trust in the process of universal energy to survive and thrive. Aligning us to a vibration that helps us realise where we have outgrown familiarity, where we would be wise to move on and that we learn and continue to grow.
Aligning in self protection Crab supports us wherever we choose to move, in becoming the best version of ourselves. Our crystals of service when we are looking to grow are smoky quartz and flourite.
My last note today is, whatever your struggling with, befriend yourself, listen to what you need, internally and then support yourself in creating the space to give yourself what you need externally. No negotiating, hear what your inner you needs and start. Be gentle, be kind and be loving to yourself. Then look, consider your challenge and how you feel you would be wise in growing when you feel not yourself.
