Yesterday as I followed Dina Wakley’s tips on intuitive layering and painting, a powerful image emerged in my art journal. Shadowy shapes began to step out from the page, taking the form of a group of women circling a magical orb.
I see my foremothers in their loving embrace of the precious gift that is my life to live. I am calling this piece Ancestor Blessing.
The energy of this piece reminds me of an excerpt from John O’Donohue’s beautiful poem, Beannacht/Blessing:
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours
May it be so.
