have you ever had your soul read??
this piece was made as a gift for my dear, close friend, Tessa, as a christmas gift some years ago. in a series of conversations between one another and a woman who is a spirit guide, we each appeared in each other's sessions with this reader. That is how this painting came to life. Tessa was to ask me to paint a piece for her of my interpretations of her angels, because my spirit had come up strongly within the story of her life in sessions with this guide. all of it was to come from me, and then she was to see if what i was seeing had any merit. after that was told to me, it stayed close to my mind. finally, i had a session of my own with this spirit guide, and when most of what she relayed to me began to unfold as she said she thought it would, i decided it was time to create the painting. i stopped being afraid i might fail. this reader told me some things about my life that she would have never, ever been able to know, and she also filled in holes of questions and pointed out to me who had been true to me in the past, and who was a twin in my life (and going back to the beginning of all my lives) and my soul.
it was a bit to take in, absorb, reflect on, eye-opening, and good. it brought peace, and was so worth it in all ways.
i don't think you have to necessarily go somewhere or to anyone special to have eye-opening awakenings within your soul. they can appear out of nowhere in a quiet moment, on a self exploring adventure, or within a conversation with people unaware.
and really, we could honestly know everything there is to know and unless we are willing to listen to ourselves, nothing much matters. listening to ourselves is the first step, and letting go of the thing that holds us all back: fear. most of the time we step beyond that fear, go for what we wish for, and look back to see that it was not as we had anticipated at all...it was better, easier. and we then look back and ask ourselves how we let something like that waste our time because if we knew how amazing it would be, we would have never waited at all in the first place.
