05/18 Had a few new ideas come to me, have been fiddling digitally (as on the above image) but nothing is clear. They partly relate to the third eye and crown chakras. I also heard a voice inside my head yesterday say, "Split her open" and while I do know what that is in reference to, (removing the armor) I am unsure if that message pertains to this piece, or the next. (As I write this, I just had an idea relating to the split.)
05/20 Worked on two of the six guardian mandalas. Archangel Michele (name might change) is completed, another one started.
I initially was only going to go partway with this piece but I eventually fill the entire red section with the message "You are loved and you are enough."
Mantras in the black lines.
Added mantras to yellow face and body. White lines added over blue.
It felt great today, it felt real. Sitting there writing the mantras, I was fully present and felt a sense of peace come over me that took me by surprise. I typically spend so much time in my head questioning whether or not I'm doing what I'm supposed to, (by leading a creative life) that I don't really ever have a chance to feel at peace.
Stay tuned for more updates on the progress of this work. JUNE 7TH SAVE THE DATE! First Friday in June is when this exhibit will open. It will then be on display until July 3rd.
