Enjoy the fucking view!


I have been increasingly aware of the days that my creative cup has gone bone dry. It plagues me to no end and then I’ll wake up one morning and feel ready-open and waiting for inspiration to swoop in and carry me away. Today was such a morning and although I have now taken 45 minutes to sit in the sauna and read, I’m still happy and content with the creation just behind my left shoulder.

I began my day with the first ever #cardoftheday on my instagram account. It was difficult, because at first glance, I thought the card was asking me to send a message in regards to our world as it crumbles right now. A breath and a little grounding helped me quickly realize, it wasn’t.

After posting and hash tagging all morning, I walked into my studio and laid out the four canvases that represent the four Tarot suits that I will be painting.

I was pulled to the AIR canvas which was a muted swirl of white and subtle metallics. I moved over to the large notebook I’m keeping as I dive deeper into the traditional meanings of the cards and scanned the ‘Swords’ page. The first thing I wrote under the Two of Swords is, “Resist choice by blindfolding the mind”.

Ohhhh….the images ran through me like a flip book going way too fast. I saw trees then a path through the forest and there I stood, blindfolded with two swords in front of me, warding off any threat. My feet walking down the middle of a grass area, ignoring that the path behind me had split into two and I avoided both options. (It wasn’t until it was finished and I pulled open my books-did I realize how closely it resembles the person in the Rider Waite deck)

I sat down, began with turquoise chalk to imagine the scale of the scene on the card and then with a thin brush and silver metallic paint…I began.

The two swords represent anger and fear, both held as a barrier to keep one safe while she chooses NOT to choose. The cross of wrists happens at the heart as if she wants to close herself off from emotion.

This mornings card was The Witness from my Mystic Shaman Oracle and it spoke to me about a message of stepping back and going within. I understood how we so often move though situations we are presented with pure emotional drive. All too often, especially recently, the FEELING of it all can become far too much and it can cloud our judgement. The message of the day was to take a step back from it all, notice how we respond and if it’s a pattern that we can recognize across our lifes journey. There is always a part of us that waits in the wings, excited to show us a better way. It begs us to step outside of our need for control and listen to our inner voice…the rational one. HA!

So now I see the two coming together…The Witness and the message it asked me to share this morning and the vision of the Two of Swords that came shortly after. I didn’t realize their similarities until just sitting down to write. Obviously, there is a more personal message for myself coming through. I have always wanted a clear vision of the path that I am supposed to take but the Goddess has told me, repeatedly, that the choice is mine and all will be well but I have never felt confident in any one choice. Yesterday my message was to follow the path of my heart, the path that felt laid by love. This frustrated me because again-the girl who does not like to be told what to do-just wants to be told when it comes to my life purpose. I literally exhaust myself…and my wife for that matter.

Here, today…these two cards are saying, “Fine. Don’t choose….but that will also come with a heavy price.” Reverse psychology.

I don’t want to wait anymore.

I don’t want to sit in fear of failure.

Seeds have been planted.

I am ready.

I know my path.

I know my chosen journey and understand that I have no idea where it is going to lead me, but I will open up to the possibilities and the curves and bends of it all because I can feel the divine speaking to me when I dive in. I will allow emotion to come through for pure creative juice of it all, but I will try my best not to let it take over.

No more seeing the forest for the trees or not seeing, but instead…keep moving with love and enjoy the fucking view along the way.

Blessed Be!
