Perspective Shifter

Ready to shift your perspective?

Here’s a new body print painting for my upcoming Oracle of Embodied Art oracle deck! The body print was made by putting paint on my back and bum while I was on an art retreat in the magical beauty of New Mexico in May. I brought the body print home, and intuitively created Perspective Shifter.

I hope its messages resonate with you!

Perspective Shifter

  • She embodies the dragonfly’s magic of easily changing direction to see the positive.
  • Sunflowers for JOY.
  • A lotus flower to remind us to rise above anything that keeps us in negative muck.

Purpose of the Oracle of Embodied Art oracle deck

I believe you were born with gifts – your Super Powers! – that you’re meant to use to make the world brighter. My hope is that the Oracle of Embodied Art can be a tool to help you tap into your own power of intuition/connection to the Divine to create a life that embodies your Super Powers so you can rock the life you were put on this planet to live!

That’s living life fully embodied, which is an art!

What are body prints?

I’m putting paint on various parts of my own body and pressing myself onto loose canvas or large watercolor sheets to make prints. Then, I paint in heads and other images to complete the picture. Each painting is created intuitively, so I’m not sure at this point what each oracle card will include – that’s the sparkly creative magic of being on the Heroine’s Journey!

Stay tuned for more Oracle of Embodied Art paintings!

Shine on ~ xo,

Shedding Skin

Ready to shed your old skin?

I hope its messages resonate with you!

Shedding Skin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The snake is a symbol for transformation. It must go through the painful process of shedding its skin to grow. If not, it will wither and die.
  • We go through a similar transformation. The old skin represents our fears, limiting beliefs/circumstances/relationships that hold us back from becoming our best selves, which can cause our souls to shrivel within us.
  • But if we can shed the old skin, we emerge wiser and more powerful.
  • The old skin we shed can hold beauty though, because of the lessons learned and new skills gained that help us shine in the next chapter of the journey.
  • The phoenix symbolizes strength, renewal and creativity emerging.

Body Electric

Hi everyone! I’m starting a new adventure, and I’d love for you to come along as it evolves.

I’ve begun creating a new type of art – using body prints to create paintings that will become cards in my new oracle deck – Oracle of Embodied Art: Connect to Your Intuitive Fierce Beauty (at least that’s the working title for now.) 😉

What are body prints?

I’m putting paint on various parts of my nude body and pressing myself onto loose canvas or large watercolor sheets to make prints. Then, I paint in heads and other images to complete the picture.

Each painting is created intuitively, so I’m not sure at this point what each oracle card will include. My plan is to use the basic structure of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey – Heroine’s Journey in this case!

  • Call to Adventure
  • Road of Trials
  • Discover/Reclaim Your Super Powers
  • Transition to True Self
  • Pay It Forward
  • Friends/Foes/Invisible Hands
The first card in the Oracle of Embodied Art is Body Electric.

In the Tarot, this card would be the Fool/Seeker. She symbolizes:

  • embarking on a new journey – what Joseph Campbell would identify as the Call to Adventure!
  • taking a blind leap of faith into the unknown
  • willingness to take a risk even though the outcome is unknown and family/society/career may see this risk as foolish
  • willingness to be open to new opportunities (and JOY!)
  • believing that the Universe can provide the resources that will help us grow and shine on this journey, way beyond what our limited human perception can see

I believe we were each born with gifts – your Super Powers! – that you’re meant to use to make the world brighter for yourself and those around you. My hope is that the Oracle of Embodied Art deck can be a tool to help you tap into your own power of intuition and live the life you were put on this planet to live!

So, here we go! I’m excited to see where Body Electric’s journey leads as the Oracle of Embodied Art develops and evolves – stay tuned! 🙂
