Hyena

Another drawing challenge got my attention – the hyena. Not the animal to say its adorable but I wanted to try. Looking up the symbolism afterwards, made clear why I draw one and why it came out looking sweet. The hyena is consistent my inner process.

The Spotted Hyena symbolism, like the Prairie Dog, is a reminder that you must participate in your community. Withdrawal is not an option. Thus you must find ways to get involved and participate in your surroundings healthily and progressively. There is strength in numbers.

Occasionally, the Spotted Hyena symbolism asks you to embrace the feminist energy that is now required by this planet to find balance. For far too long, you have given up a part of yourself to the opposing forces that surround you. Moreover, leadership requires a balance in all areas. Therefore, the Hyena meaning implies that you must take on both the male and the female energies to bring about compromise. If you are male, this means that you will have to get in touch with your feminine side.

Received two thank-you-presents that were waiting until I do something with them. Got a lot of horse hair and when unpack it, the hair fell into heart shape.

The second present were two ‘Hühnergötter’ or as they are called in different tongues: hag stones, Snake’s eggs, Glain neidr, Adderstanes or Gloine nan Druidh. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adder_stone

Combined the two in the larger ‘Hühnergott’ and added a tool I made some time ago. Today I initiated the tool.

Icelandic Horses

Saturday I had my second horse coaching. A gift from two friends. Not much was told about the horses. To my surprise the work would be done by five Icelandic Horses at http://www.comedi-coaching.nl

Last week I had bought one big Icelandspat and 4 small ones – what a coincidence.

The group had two new arrivals in their midst. There was a mare who had problems with here hind legs. She was the first to made contact with me. Followed by a gelding who had back problems some time ago and was recovering. The other three were doing fine.

Like a fine tuned receiver they registered every word I said and reacted with small signs to make clear that it was right what I was saying. Showed my underlying irritations, sadness, despair, anger, reclusion and much more. The coach gently guided me and told me about the signs the horses showed. Took them and me quite some time to fall into movement of the stagnant pent-up energy of ages. I suddenly said:” maybe a sixth horses is needed to get something started.” The coach laughed and answered that a sixth horses is arriving soon.

After quite some time, the first horse went away to take a dump. A second one followed and a third, controlling the others dumps first if everything was seen and put away, than took a dump too. They went frequently to drink and when I said they have to drink to clean up, they reacted with validation. My grandmother was there to help. And finally one of the two new horses came by my left side to stay. She was there to support me and I burst into tears with words: ” Finally someone at my side.” During the whole session all five horses continued eating, some as if their life depended on it. A bit of a funny fact because in my youth, all we ever did was eat, lots of food. Mother was an outstanding cook and my father backed the finest pies and cakes.

At last we spoke about my children. And when telling about the quarrels with one of them, two of the horses got into heavy fight showing anger and aggression, sad moment it was.

Before going away I had to great each horse separately and I did with heartfelt gratitude. Especially the mare with the hind legs problem and the gelding with the back problem. Wanted to do something in return so let my hands do the work. The mare accepted and so did the gelding although for a short time letting me know that I was there for myself and not for him.

The mare had pointed out that there was a healing to be done. We went inside and I got one. At the end I received a special stone which worked in an instant on my heart – the place to be – more specific – the feminie heart on the diaphragm.

In the evening pain started – the healing on the two horses – their energy had to be cleaned and could finally, on Monday, send back. Now my pain of all that had come to the fore during the horse coaching came and I still have it with me – slowly fading away. Got some interesting information about the fact that I was part of a twin but born alone. On top of that  the way I was born –  a blue baby almost dead due to the umbilical cord around my neck. The insights are tremendous on physical, emotional, mental areas and behavior.
Here are just two of the facts:

1. The alone born twin will be left-handed and/or ambidextrous – the definition of true ambidexterity is being able to do a task equally well with either hand or with both hands at the same time. Funny because I wrote this quite some time ago without knowing the above:

2. My love for even numbers

Still processing it all. Many thanks to the horses who worked for and with me helping in my ongoing inner journey. Will go there again when the sixth horse has arrived. After all my name in Chinese says among other things: woman of horse.

The past days the bear crossed my path. In words and messages from others and in myself. Was given a gif on Twitter

that reminded me again of a picture I once got from an old dear friend.

Plus it reminded me of a bear tool I made a long time ago. Looked that up and started upgrading it. Implemented the bear tooth I have. Here is bear, the healer of emotions and foundation, the grounding force, confidence and courage.

Furthermore I had to remove some plants and while doing so, a tiny little branch from the stephanotis or Hawaiian wedding flower fell down and I kept it because of its shape. Two weeks ago I bought a Brucit gemstone as I already told in a previous blog. Today the tiny branch and the Brucit had to join forces.

stephanotis derived from the Greek word stephanos’ , meaning ‘crown’. Stephanotis signifies ‘marital bliss’

Both tools are not yet initiated.

After a stressful week some silent days were welcome. Stumbled onto quite some info, from outside as well as from the inside. The bells of future are ringing quietly. As energy flows so signs come up to make the message crystal clear. Two gemstones came to my attention and I bought them. There message alone is strong enough. I bought a Brucit and a Selenite.

Brucit:
Break with old negative patterns, walk your own soul path and enjoy life. With Brucite, the sun shines on every aspect of life. A stone of abundance, of the soul and harmony. Provides perseverance, clarity of thought and the necessary peace of mind to make decisions. At the same time it helps with intentions and achieving set goals. A new future brings with it farewell to the old. We often have difficulty with that. Fortunately, the stone also lends a hand here. It helps to say goodbye to that which no longer serves you. https://happy-spirit.nl/

Selenite:

The white Selenite especially suits the heart chakra. Strengthens intuition, clairvoyance and clear knowing. Strong purifying effect on the vegetative nervous system, including the brain. https://www.semoea.nl/

Yesterday I came along the drawing challenge on Twitter: Monocle octopus against hate. Up to now I didn’t like them. But the urge was there so lets try and draw one. Choosing the color was no problem, it had to be purple with a golden monocle. Here it is.

Wondering why I looked up the message of octopus.

Octopus:innovation, dynamics, change, strong intuition, staying on your path.

So all those things entering my life along with the foal’s horse hairs, which came two weeks ago, ring regeneration and renewal. Let the adventure begin.

Tapir

April 28, 2020 I already drew a tapir because of World Tapir Day. Yesterday with the animal-august drawing challenge there the tapir was again. The new one I like best. Different from the first one.

Of course here again its symbolism.

Tapir’s wisdom include: toughness, understanding shyness, longevity, connection to the horse and rhinoceros, gentleness, ability to remain unchanged by time, magic

The process involving my grandmother and the influence this had in the female family line that started May,7 with the process painting now has come to closure.

In a former life of the soul of my grandmother happened something involving a child she never forgave herself for. That child passed on her hate towards her mother through the female line. Grandmother in this life still had self hate because of what happened back than. Me, as caring and open to energy’s as I am, took place in the energy of that child and carried it. As matter of fact this prevented me from really loving grandmother despite she being kind of a protecting godmother to me. I also, passed on by my mother, carried the self hate, preventing self love and forgiveness. Bitterness also developed. Had to do a family constellation to give all of it back through the line and I did, creating a barrier towards the old energy’s. Now I, finally, only have my own energy field left.

The process of the painting? To my biggest surprise the painting isn’t, as I thought, about grandmother – it is me. The message came through  my coach Ria Winterman
“There is something you did not see and it is that middle you worked on….in the beginning it is more outgoing, first not rotating at all, then the movement,and in the latter changes you worked back inside and closed with the walnut.Your own process. Back towards you as you are.” Indeed I didn’t see that.

This brings us to the painting made June, 9th
What was made for a Sunday drawing challenge in fact is connected to the process painting. Also the tool I had made ages ago and no idea what fore. The blue painting is the elaboration of what’s behind the walnut in the process painting. I’m very fond of both paintings and they will be framed as soon as possible and the tool somehow with them on the wall. So far what was going on Monday 3rd with the full moon.

Along this 3 month process I happened to get a newsletter of Irida webshop offering Brazilian Rhinestone . One immediately had my attention and I ordered it. Yesterday it arrived and after a long sea salt bath in the full moon it now enliven my altar. To me it look like a man and a woman are hugging. The assignment to do: who I am now and putting that in writing….

A few days ago I learned, that the trees in our courtyard are Amber trees, Liquidambar orientalis, and I take care of one of them.  information about the healing quality’s in dutch

The healing power of the tree cares for the lungs and the Medicinal Incense Amber has a stimulating effect on the spleen, liver, kidneys, thyroid and heart. The active ingredient is also available as an info about the essential oil in dutch

This morning I suddenly noticed, that the amber tree seed balls resembles COVID19 .  COVID19 attack the lungs but also the heart, blood circulation and more and COVID19 came, to bring us back to love with ourselves, our own rhythm and Mother Nature.  The same things the tree can help you with. What makes you sick is also the cure as of now research is going on which shows that bats carry something that give them the ability to survive deadly sicknesses.

And a friend of mine yesterday came with another down to earth knowledge: with the leaves of the tree you can shine your shoes.

High heart

Friday, June 5, with the Full Moon,I had signed up for the  Full Moon Webinar with M. v/d Knaap  
Besides some heavy irritation at the beginning, the actual reality within made itself known. Saturday was a day to reboot and process. Sunday there was the usual #ichgebeauf drawing challenge by @kriegundfreitag. This time: let your subconsciousness draw or paint without thinking. I always paint this way when an energy-painting will be made. So no big deal I thought.
Started with blue acrylic paint and let my hands do. Poured water over the canvas, covered with tin foil and let my hands do whatever moves they wanted. The base of the painting. Proceeded with water colors. The middle is made by glue.

A friend of mine saw it and made the connection to a tool I have since forever. Both, the painting and the tool, connect to the high heart mentioned during the webinar. The painting shows the new world in progress – the high heart knows the way.

My son also was fascinated – looks like a map he said and lots of water. He took the photos of both.

Yesterday had a lot of drawing challenges. 1:  @AnimalAlphabets #MythicalAlphabet animal for J – Jasconius and we had World Tapir Day. Started with the Jasconius because I felt most attracted to this myth and of course as a turtle.

Jasconius – a fabled sea creature, variously described as a large whale or vast sea turtle with huge spines on the ridge of its back. It is always described as being huge where it is often mistaken for an island and appears to be rocky with crevices and valleys with trees and greenery and having sand dunes all over it.

Turtle – Symbol of the world, of the Earth, Ability to stay grounded, even in moments of disturbances and chaos, slowing down, pacing yourself, determination, persistence, emotional strength and understanding and ancient wisdom

And okay, because my Chinese sign is Dragon – lets draw that dragon having a good time resting on the balcony of a tower.

The Tapir was the last to draw. First I had no intention to do so. But Tapir as an animal totem has much to offer. Didn’t know that one of it’s totem powers is awaken to your magical power. Suits my current inner development so let’s do it. I intuitively drew the tapir with a red vest. The magicians colors are black/red. So now I know why.

Tapir’s wisdom include: toughness, understanding shyness, longevity, connection to the horse and rhinoceros, gentleness, ability to remain unchanged by time, magic.

I use what comes my way as a sign or metaphor, so it was a busy day yesterday.
