At the start of the event I started painting with drum music on the background.

When finished I sat down to meditate. When the drumming stopped I sat there somehow emotional with tears in my eyes. The idea came up to connect a communication tool, I made quite some time ago, to my talking stick. So I took both of the tools from their basket.

Suddenly the old leather rope of the little bag broke. When opening the bag a turquoise gemstone and a little globe fell out. Totally forgotten treasures. The two are now bathing in sea salt water. 

I had a new rope implemented. The spot where the bag was fixed to the talking stick is now filled with gold paint. When everything has dried I will put it all together. 


New and fresh communication coming soon I suppose. Here the refreshed talking ready to work again, wearing the new equipment as a back-pack.


My new shaman drum arrived, made by http://www.atelierlazuli.nl

At first it was not supposed to be mine but I already had given it the Camel energy. The customer who wanted to buy her, did not like the color so it was done again in yellow. But then the customer did not want her at all. When I heard the story I decided to make it mine. I personalized it with my Shaman Camel Tool.

In the Camel leather I detected a little mouse beside other marks.

Next step is to work further on the drumstick when the leather has dried.

Today’s assignment for @AnimalAlphabet was to draw the Harpy Eagle. At first I had no drive to do so. During the day that suddenly changed and in a quick draw there he was – The Harpy Eagle.

Tomorrow we have a potent new moon, a Hades Moon because Pluto is involved, so is black moon Lilith. A new moon of change, of trust and faith in higher powers. Curious if the drive to draw the Harpy Eagle may have a link to the new moon, so I looked it up. As a matter of fact he is.

If the Harpy Eagle appears, it is a sign and message that you are going through the changes you have asked for. The Harpy eagle take your plans heavenward and can be used to transmute negative things. There is a death of the old ways of doing things. Right now you are being humbled by spirit and the voice within. https://www.powerfulmystic8.com


The Golden Lion Tamarin in short:
• Helps to connect to mental clarity, thoughts and ideas
• Aligns you to the lighter side of life whilst still getting the job done
• Will help you see blocks and issues before they become a problem
• Helps balance humor with getting the job done
• Shows you how to be ‘larger than life’, self belief and understanding on finding your highest potential
• Will connect you to evolving yourself and the community you need to be a part of to make what you are doing


So this animal came across my path right in time. No wonder I liked it so much drawing it.

One of the animal’s which suites some of my inner traits is the lizard. Learned that from my personal Tzolkien profile.  When this came along I already had lizard brooch for a long time. I had it implemented on a piece of antler because the needle was broken.

A drawing challenge by @AnimalAlphabets was a lizard. Enjoyed drawing one very much. As a matter of fact my drawings are better when my inner world has to do with it. So here is the drawing.

Symbolism of Lizard: Flexible, Adaptive, Spiritual, Quick, Shrewd, Camouflage, Regeneration, Smart and Fast.

Today an Alpaca came along and I tried it too.

Symbolism and traits of Alpaca: communicating through body language, gentle character, living in herd, at least two of them, with good personal space boundaries, hard working and perseverance. Watch out for carrying the hole world on your shoulder. If mistreated you will know it, they get stubborn.

As a matter of fact I behave in a similar way. More communicating with body language, especially with my eyes and if mistreated you will know it for sure. When younger I tend to carry more than I could shoulder and was a real workaholic. Setting good boundaries as my personal space was also an issue.

The term totem animal does not necessarily mean that this animal is accompanying you but that you have similar behavior and traits . Animals coming into your life has a lot to tell and teach you, great them welcome.

Shaman Tools

The following shaman tools are waiting for a new owner, not yet initiated. Initiation will be done together with the new owner and then carry the energy needed. The tool is a helpful friend in your process afterwards.



It’s not only in the title, its done with real cleaning stuff – Blue Wonder cleaner diffuser over turmeric and hobby lacquer in blue, red, white and gold. After that I let it flow in all directions by turning the picture around

Looking at the finished painting – the real cleaning tears came too…..

Yesterday evening, after a short meditation I wanted to paint something. With eyes closed I chose three colors and let them drip on the middle of the paper. Folded it and stroke with my hands from left to right. Not expecting anything wonderful of the action I got surprised.

Top to bottom it is a person in meditation and in this person is a lot to see.

As a matter of fact, this painting is about an inner process in working. There is connection to grandma, there is protection, back to my own personal rhythm, letting go of….

Future Gold

Last week the urge to work with gold paint. Two paintings as result. The second one has also some gold candy paper for the blanket.

The third one is done with water color, which is  very soft toned, like a meadow in the spring.

I’m pleased with them. Hope they will enjoy you too. It’s about future gold – when the time and I are ready for it.
