The canvas I used was a painting I did the day before Richard's first chemo session. I did not like it and put it in the closet. It sat there for 20 months until I took Shiloh Sophia’s Midnight Muse session!
The process was so cathartic, painting over what was on the canvas, releasing, shedding tears and fears, letting go of one chapter of of my life, beginning a new one.
What I learned through my grieving and healing was that Richard and I had a soul contract from birth (the minute I saw Richard I knew he was THE ONE!) Richard's purpose in this life was to help me become a better person, to find my soul truth, through his illness and passing. It was at this time that I started questioning why I was here on earth, turning to God and giving it all up to him, beginning my spiritual path, my OWN spiritual path.
The symbols. The red thread (which came out of the compost) binds our souls. The hand and heart represent my sending him my love everyday. The feather presents the feather I found on my kitchen floor the night after my first visitation from Richard. The light represents the energy I see and feel. Finding and sharing my voice is the ray of light through the face into my throat.
I am so amazed at how it all come out on the canvas. I did not plan it. It revealed itself to me. What a beautiful experience, transformation!!!!
This is what Intentional Creativity is! I will be teaching my first IC class sometime this Fall! Can’t wait to share the process with you!
