Shaman’s Gift

It will probably sound vain and naive, but I fancied myself as a sort of public servant, creating art that (ideally) holds healing space, soothes, uplifts and inspires.  I felt a sense of purpose, first creating the desert landscapes and botanicals with their vibrant colors, then the mandalas, as deliberate energetic ambassadors and now the acrylics with their own magic…art with a mission!

I am slowly coming to realize that the entire journey has been for me, all the art and specifically the process of creating, for my healing, my connection, my expansion.  This is difficult because I want to pretend that what I do is for others, my self worth seems to still depend on what I’m providing.

Shaman ‘s Gift began in painting class in January at the Center for Creative Development (Studio 6020) and although compelling, I was not thrilled with the visual results.

Shaman's Gift

A week ago Saturday I had a session with an intuitive that began in a very unexpected way.  He instantly and fervently spoke of the mandalas and how they are sacred geometry, vibrational messages in the Language of Light.  He went on to say that they are more than two dimensional and offer the opportunity to open inner gateways within the brain.

There was a great deal more to the session and if you would like your own experience, you can find Paul on his website, Polaris AB.  I came away with a renewed commitment to my art and my evolution.  Then Paul relayed these words, a direct message from my high self, “Change control to flow, change judgment to acceptance, change impatience to peace.”  Whoa!  As those words entered my consciousness, I felt a great weight leave my chest and a new expansiveness take its place.  Paul further suggested that I create a painting expressing these messages.

It felt inspired to create this piece and I knew I was painting it just for me. I decided to paint over “Shaman’s Gift”, still knowing what was underneath the new creation…Shaman's Gift in Progress

Layers and layers of paint, collage paper and scratching.  Pushing and pulling the design.  Yesterday I really invested, tearing tiny bits of paper to apply here and there.  I felt wonder and amazement  at the time I was willing to invest, in this painting just for me.

I don’t feel I’m expressing it well, but the message is clear.  What you’ve been seeking on the outside is only available within.  What you seek to provide others, you must provide for yourself first.  Receive and enjoy your own gifts, (wow that feels weird to write).

So here it is, “Shaman’s Gift”, my painting for me, along with my new mantra and practice…”Moving from control to flow, judgment becomes acceptance and impatience melts into peace.”

Current -"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration", said Nikola Tesla. I am exploring this and employing it at the same time through art (painting with color frequency) and sound healing (I'm a certified Biofield Tuner). Combining the elements of sound and color have dramatically shifted life for the better, even during 2020. Past - Born in the desert, grew up painting even through education and career. Quit to pursue painting full time 30 years ago. Got married and divorced, single parented two boys and now delight in my grandbabies. Future - refining the frequency practices, innovating and creating, living more fully, sharing what I've learned to empower you in doing the same! " When the tide rises, it lifts all boats" John F.

  1. Wow.., what a renewal or remembering of one of your many personal (therefore Universal!) truths! The personal pieces are amazing, but the Shaman’s Gift really speaks to me! Thank you for sharing!

    Your words are a gift to me. I have been seeing my art as a kind of service to others too. I ended up getting completely blocked and not even being able to blog any more. I can see how changing my thinking will clear the block and take me back into creative flow. Thank you.
