RETURN OF THE GODDESS
I paint The Many Faces of A Woman, The Feminine Soul, in all her many-faceted aspects, expressions and archetypes.
From a very young age, I was deeply drawn to portrait Women, The Feminine Soul.
A Woman's Beauty and Mystery, the depth of a Woman's Heart and Soul continously captures and inspires me. I feel Her Call, I listen to Her, The Goddess. She speaks to me, She calls me to the depth of my Soul, She calls me into The Great Mystery.
The Feminine is deeply mystical, divine, earthy, wild, soft, tender, compassionate, creative, peaceful, powerful, loving, seeing, ancient .....She is endlessly deep and wise. She is Nature herself, She contains ALL.
Women, The Feminine, The Goddess have been suppressed, neglected, silenced, mistreated and abused through thousands of years, and still are in many cultures.
I feel deeply passionate about assisting The Rising of The Divine Feminine in whatever way I can, and help Women (and Men) awaken to, remember and claim their Sovereignty. their Soul Power, their true Essence and Beauty.
We, as a human race living on this planet, need The Divine Feminine, The Return of The Goddess to thrive and build a New Earth. We need Her Wild Loving LionHeart, Her deep Womb Wisdom and Power, her Unconditional Love to survive.
Making Soul Art leads me on an adventurous Journey into the Great Mystery and the Heart of Love. It is a fascinating process of surrrendering, opening, letting go, allowing, inner listening and TRUSTING. Trusting that I am led all the way, through all the phases of a creation. One could also see it as the art of deeply surrendering to God/Goddess within, the Great Mystery, the Great Unknown.
My art making is also a spiritual practice as I constantly seek to empty myself - over and over again - so I may become a vessel, a midwife for this wild river of inspiration, creation, beauty, Knowing moving through me, and allow it to be birthed into visible creative expressions.
Each creation is an unique expression of my journey into the Mystery, carrying its own unique medicine, frequencies and message.
Each journey is an adventurous experience, leading me into deeper Knowing and discovery of my Self, of all that I am, in all dimensions.
I never know what will happen or what I will end up with. It truly is a journey into the Unknown, and this constantly fascinates me and pulls me in, also when it takes all my courage to continue diving into the Mystery.
Because I might be facing all kinds of emotions, old beliefs, behavioral patterns, wounds might surface. Unconscious becomes conscious, I experience my light, my darkness, my woundedness and my "wholeness"/holiness:
All is mirrored to me through the art making. I find myself being the mirror and the one who is being mirrored at the same time. This power Soul Art holds to serve as a tool of awakening, alchemizing and expanding consciousness is beyond words fascinating and powerful.
As I let myself become an instrument, allowing a Higher Wisdom to lead me and flow through me, my hands move, I paint, I choose colors and tools - and I do it with the trust that follows a deep surrendering, listening and allowing....
As I follow and honor what I feel called and drawn to do in every moment I trust all will be well - that the journey will bring its gift, its blessing, its healing medicine to me.
Even during stages where all seems messy and/or without sense, and I don't have a clue about where I am going; If I keep going, keep doing, keep listening, keep following my inner guidance, I know I will arrive at a place where I will harvest......Beauty and wisdom, pearls and diamonds, beautiful treasures, healing medicine will be found.
This is Soul Art as it is truly my own Soul and the Divine Feminine leading me and expressing herself through me. I become but a vessel for what wants to move through me, for what wants to be birthed through me.
As human beings we are experiencing truly extraordinary times; a great shift in consciousness is taking place on Mother Earth, and we are seeing old structures and paradigms falling apart and dying.
New ways of living, being, seeing and creating are being called for. My passion and purpose is to help co-create the New and bring Heaven on Earth. I see this happening by the Return of The Divine Feminine, The Goddess, and the Awakening of Soul and Heart.
“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet,
Through Love all that is copper will be gold,
Through Love all dregs will become wine,
Through Love all pain will turn to medicine."
