A little more about Earth Soul. One of our many cherished Spirits 🙂 Earth Soul is a Dryad. She is tree spirit. She stands on the gateway to the earth, surrounded by air, she senses the sound of the wind and listens to the rustle of the seasons, calm and connected. With her roots she feels the earth below holding fast she is grounded and is nourished by the earth source. She is spirit and body, feeling all the other elements around her, air, fire, water, and either, nourishing her. In turn they help each other, one cannot live without each other, the building blocks of life our beautiful Earth. Earth Soul goddess of trees.
Many Blessings for your vote
Art is a State of Mediation it’s Where We Connect to the Source.
2012 was full of flying around, losing a loved one, trying out a new career move, that did not work out, and organizing my wedding. On a waking moment basis I’m constantly battling with making a living while traveling because I have so many areas I can work in. I’m lucky to be a gifted person who can pretty much do what I set my mind to, whether its painting, drawing, making jewelry, crafting and cooking or just coming up with ideas my mind is always on the go, but this is also my downfall because I’m always moving from one job to the next and never doing something exceptionally well, and I often find myself exhausted and still struggling to be an artist.
As the year was at an end, I sat quietly and thought about my year and how I felt about my experience. Was I happy? Did i make others happy? Did I achieve the things I wanted? And if not why what happened for me to disconnect for a time. And this is how “Earth Soul” came to be. I was a wanting to be still and go back to the basics. Just using a graphite pencil to create and still my mind and meditate on going back to my roots.
Earth Soul is about going back to basics and learning from the ground up connecting to our roots. We all have times when we need to reconnect to the earth and feel at peace within ourselves after a busy day. Or maybe we want to spend a few minutes at the beginning of the day just to centre ourselves for the day ahead. Earth Soul is just that she watches and listens to the world within herself and around her and connects to the divine source as she becomes one with the earth. Many mediations start off or finish off with a grounding exercise. An ideal way is to imagine you feet growing roots and feeling all the goodness from the earth. As you breathe in you fill your body of all the goodness of the earth and as you breathe out, you release all the stresses, and any negative emotions of the day. The more you do this the more your roots travel and the more refreshed you will feel, ready to take on the day ahead, or relax at the end of a long day.
I’m still chasing my tail with different projects and trying to calm my mind, like what do I write next and will I achieve what I want at the end of this day? I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves the same questions? Does it really matter that I don’t achieve all I set out for my day? Will I punish myself if I don’t? Yes is the most likely answer, but today my message is to enjoy everything. So with that in mind its time to take a shower and grow my roots and reevaluate where I am heading today.
I wanted to create a new piece for Earth Day. I knew I was going to base it around a friend of mine Siani. When I first decided to create this piece, my intuition was telling me that she would be ideal for the painting.
Whenever I think of what crystals to use, certain crystals talk to me along with the colors in which I’m going to use for the piece. Always when I decide upon my model for a particular piece that the connection between subject and matter always complement each other perfectly. I did have a vague idea that Siani was into amber, as I recall her boyfriend Joe buying some jewelry for her, plus I had some insight from a good friend, So green Amber was a must. Siani is also from the Orkney Islands and loves the Brodgar Stones. So I wanted to add them as sunrise setting placing Siani between the stones, watching a new day come to life.
I wanted to use the earth symbol so I created my own green amber shading the area lighter for the cross, I felt that it fitted in nicely over the earth as Green amber is associated with protection, it turns negative energy into positive, cleans the chakras, and aids purification. It clears the heart chakra and fills it with love. As an Earth stone this was fitting to use it to help cleanse our earth. Another stone I also decided to use my good old friend of mine is amyethst, this crystal is one of the most powerful crystals of healing, its good for cleansing and healing an excellent stone for meditation and visualization in to sowing the seed on manifestation with the all seeing power of wisdom. For some reason I was also guided to peridot and black onyx but peridot was the final choice as for sometime now this stone has been in my thoughts and it turned out to be more than perfect for this piece. Peridot is an excellent protective stone for the aura, its also a powerful cleanser, this stone is also excellent in releasing negative patterns and old vibrations, its my hope this will help bring about the necessary change needed in the consciousness shift.
Holding the earth I used our own nature spirit the fae, she is in the goddess position holding the earth. To me this looks like the looking glass into our soul the earth, she is home of everything.
