This morning whilst working on my root chakra via binaural beats. . .
Have you heard of that? Binaural beats uses the solfeggio tones combined with subliminal suggestions. I have been using this system to work on my Akashic records, anxiety & fear, creativity, chakra balancing, and auric cleansing. It does keep the monkey mind at bay and I get a general sense of well being after about 20 minutes of listening.
Back to this mornings journey... I was listening to root chakra balancing and cleansing on the youtube meditative mind channel. I began to journey and found myself having a talk with an Aboriginal man; we meet from time to time in my journey work. We were talking about modern civilization, the bloody carnage on the streets of America and elsewhere, how humans were losing their minds, forgetting who we are as spiritual beings. He suggested to walk away from the modern worlds clutter and reclaim who you are; this needs to be done everyday. Unplug. For at least 20 minutes.
I have also been reading the work of Dr. Sharon Blackie, an Irish writer, psychologist, mythologist. Her blog is outstanding and her new book "If Women Rose Rooted," is really worth reading. Here is a link to some of her work: https://www.garrisoninstitute.org/blog/finding-our-mythic-ground/
We are missing the mundus imaginalis, we have lost our selves in the chaos and our soul longs for, thirsts for, the soul life which has been abandoned as something archaic and old fashioned. We forget that we are as old as time; the immortal soul has an important part to play in our daily lives.
I have been preparing stencil drawings via my Illustrator software in readiness for the new piece I have in mind. There will be a flying female shaman, birds, treetops and stars. I got my Birch wood cradled 18" x 24" board, she is sitting on my easel waiting for me to begin. I have ordered some repositionable stencils - it has a sticky back. When that arrives I will be able to cut my stencils and begin to work on the board. I have in mind to create a negative space, where the wood grain shows through. Can't wait to begin.
Be safe, be aware of your outer and inner environment and don't forget to switch off from the chaos.
