It's Friday night and I'm sitting down to write after spending hours editing photos and updating my etsy shop. I can tell you it has been a big 2 weeks since my last post. I feel the weight of emotional baggage becoming less burdensome as I talk, share and reach out like I never have before. I'm still digesting all that I've learned and have yet to learn about myself. It's funny how hope and faith work in perfect sync to propel you forwards so you no longer cower in the dark, where it hurts because it is easier than dealing, rather than sharing. I have hope and I know that whilst this is early days, I *know* I will get through the dark. I know there will be dark times ahead as I delve into the past for answers but I have faith that I have the strength and courage to get through it. I have people I love backing me and reminding me daily. I know I got this far in life with baggage, why wouldn't I get through it when I am open to healing?
The photo you see here is of a silver pendant I made recently. It shows how I create and design intuitively. I didn't think about any of what I'm about to write until after I finished making the pendant. The moon has been my companion for many a late night when I haven't been able to sleep, when I've been afraid that I won't sleep and when I've been afraid of the bad dreams that I may be trapped by. The moon has given me silence, peace and solace. The bird - which I haven't decided whether it's a thunderbird or raptor of some sort - came to me during a reiki session when it was dark everywhere and all I could see was a bird's eyes looking at me and surveying the darkness that engulfed us both. I thought about what the bird represents to me. Being a winged animal, it is a way out of the dark, the wings aid the bird's escape just like creating and art are an escape to me, but also an eye opener in providing me with clarity of thought. I'm forever soul searching.
