May Flower Full Moon

May Flower Moon

The fifth moon of Creation is Flower Moon, where all plants display their Spirit sides for all the world to see. This life giving energy is one of the most powerful healing medicines on Mother Earth. During this moon we are encouraged to explore our own Spiritual essences.

Of course tonight is a full moon… the energies around us have been strange and complex.  The moon is in Scorpio constellation in the sky at the moment, which helps us get in touch with our intimate, authentic self and to live in the truth.

Full moon energy shines light on things that no longer serve our life purpose. Through the power of intention, we release those things in order to make room for the new. Change is the only constant in our experience… so why not create change with intention?!

This full moon brings extra clarity and power of will into our lives, in order to release and let go of the old in order to make room for the beautiful gifts ahead.

Transform through surrender.

The Wesak Moon is known as the celebration of Vesak  (Buddha Day) in Buddhist traditions, and it is one of the most significant and auspicious festivals of the Buddhist year. It takes place on the fourth full moon of the Chinese lunar calendar, and this year it falls on May 10th.

Vesak is a celebration of Buddha’s journey, which encompasses his birth, nirvana (attainment of enlightenment), and parinirvana (ascent/death). Theravadan Buddhists believe that all three of these events occurred on the same day.

Interesting that in Buddhism, today is celebrated as the most powerful full moon of the year, bringing with it a new wave of awakening light! I knew there was a reason the energy around feels very intense.

The sabian symbol of the Full Moon is “Obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders”. The message of the sabian symbol is: sometimes you have to assert your values, your truth, even if you have to face the consequences of your decision, no matter the cost. You have to stay true to yourself, no matter what. This is the ultimate freedom. And the only one we really have.

Now is the time to love each part of your being, light and dark. It is about being you to the fullest, and living your truth no matter what.

 Personally, this energy has been impacting me tremendously.  I have felt in my being these very words before they were ever read. Being true to myself and connecting with source to remind myself I Am Divine. This is a journey to the Divine.

To work with this energy through intention, you can write out all of the things you know are hindering you from your life’s purpose and then burn them, releasing them to source. You can write down what your authentic self looks like. You can take a bath and meditate or listen to a wonderful full moon ceremony online.  This beautiful woman, Sage Goddess, does full moon ceremonies live streaming online, and tonights is going to be fantastic!

Surrender and release

Painting my journey

Yesterday was my very first solo art show opening! I have the pleasure of being the artist for November and December at Mending Roots Wellness Center in Camp Hill Pa.
The opening reception was perfect, with lots of love, light and laughter. Thank you everyone for coming and sharing your time with me and my art <3
A few months ago, Tami at Mending Roots Wellness Center contacted me about being their artist for November and December. I had been meditating on having an art showing since the beginning of this year. I knew that it would happen when the time was right… so as soon as she messaged me I knew it was time.
This year my paintings have evolved into a style!
As an artist, I have been looking for my style to come through my work. Being a creator in many ways, I’ve always felt like I’ve lacked that thing that made me a “real” artist. Seeing other artists having their specific style, I wondered and put much energy into uncovering my own.
Intuitive painting is a way to tap into yourself and create a masterpiece.  It’s about meditating and centering yourself in order to better hear what’s calling you, what you desire.  The colors and placement of images comes from a feeling, trusting myself to let go and create what’s inside of me. It’s been a beautiful process for not only the growth of my art, but for my own personal and spiritual growth. It has helped me to be more intune with myself.
I started this journey through the lotus flower, and the buddha. Creating paintings as full moon meditations, and connecting with my intuition through breathing practices has really helped my art unfold in a deeper way. The layers evolve and create a depth that can be felt. It holds the energy within and makes the painting alive.
As my journey continued, I started becoming more aware of the animals around me. Seeing a Blue Heron every day in August and September taught me patience, persistence, and acceptance of my leadership role.  Becoming more in tune with my native heritage, I realized the power of the Turtle, carrying the weight of man on her back. Aligning with my inner consciousness and seeing the world from a new perspective, the Water Dragon came to life. Finding knowledge and wisdom within, the Owl shows me we are all the gatekeepers of our own knowledge. The Elk shows me how to stand strong in my power, and how to persevere. The Buffalo brings the vision of promise, ancient wisdom and abundance.

 

I am looking forward to what the universe has in store for the next set of paintings. <3
