Moving into the void with the dreaming bear

 

björninnNow in the Northern Hemisphere we are moving into the cold dark winter months of hibernation and introspection. I feel it strongly when the wind is blowing outside and it is dark and the energy seems slow and heavy. When meditating couple of days ago I found myself moving into the underworld of Mother Earth which I do when I journey to meet my power animal and suddenly I moved deeper under, like I was taken deeper into Mother Earth and I was greeted by a big Polar bear. I welcomed it and he took me into his cave which was beautiful crystalline and there was a pond where I could see the sky and the galaxy and we travelled down there into the sky moving into deep inner space. It felt wonderful to fly off with the dreaming bear. He told me to move deeper into myself and there I can find the vastness of source that is emanating everything. He also told me to move deeper into my dream and that the dark and the cold winter months are opportunities to look within and really feel what is my path. There I can start to work the soil and prepare it for the dream seed that will start to grow next spring. I can feel this energy working for me because our dreams change as we change. We need to regularly check within and see if our dreams are in alignment with who we are today, because yesterdays dreams are not always growing with us.

I would love to hear about your dreams and if they have changed? Are you moving towards them?

Enjoy the dreaming season*

Love and light

Entering the gateway

Nature is my teacher and inspiration. It can become a gateway to deeper wisdom and teachings if we just allow it to speak to us. I had the privilege to experience this communion with nature when I went to visit beautiful beaches in Snæfellsnes in Iceland. It is a very special place with high energy vibrations. I have often visited these places but this special afternoon in October something special showed itself in the cliff rocks by the beach and how light played with its formations.

I felt the sacredness of this place and the wisdom it holds in its rocks that have stand the test of time for eons, always still and observing, being formed by the elements and the ocean. I saw the old wise ones in the rocks and it felt like they were an ancient record keepers of sacred wisdom. I felt in awe how beautiful and sacred our earth mother is and how we can perceive her light and wisdom if we just observe and take in the beauty and stand still with the land.

I had to paint this sanctuary and it is a soul art medicine to to be able to take that energy into the paintings and stay with it and let the colors guide me forward.

Much love and blessings
