The Owl is a teacher... This is powerful medicine that speaks of truth, magic, and connects us to Spirit (God, Goddess, and Universal Source) Wisdom. It aids us on our journey inward. What a beautiful spirit guide :)
Starting from the top: The third eye on this Mother Owl is wide open as it is transmitting knowledge from above. Bringing it all in :) Her eyes are Sunflowers with a waxing and waning moon in each and then finished with a spiraling into the pupil. The eyes are lenses from which we observe and absorb the beauty that surrounds. I really wanted to balance the moon and sun energies without creating duality which is why I added the spiraling iris. The spiraling to me represents expansion and growth, also perfection amidst chaos. Her chin has beautiful spiraling clouds. Beneath that is the neck feather “ring of fire". Beneath that are the two spirit birds coming up. They have to journey through the ring of fire and the soft fluffy clouds to reach the source wisdom of the Mother Owl. The spirit birds are in two shades, the right one is blue (male energy) the left one is purple (female energy) and I chose blue and purple because they radiate the two highest energies, they radiate from the crown and third eye. These birds already are on a high frequency but they still have to journey to that higher consciousness. This is a reminder that life is a journey, not a destination. We must embrace exactly where we are, as we are perfectly where we should be. Beneath the owls are a very specific range of mountains “The Organ Mountains" of Las Cruces, NM. They are very near to my heart. In front of the mountains are a group of elders" Sequoia Trees". They breathe life into our bodies: They teach us of stillness and ground us. Beneath that is a river. I added all the elements in this piece but water is by far my favorite as we (human beings) have learned that water has its own consciousness. It stores information, has emotion, and makes up over 75% of our bodies. This to me is the river of knowledge and consciousness from which all life has emerged. Between this and the layers of earth emerge two of my spirit guides the Bear on the right (male energy) and Doe on the left (female energy). Generally I view Bear as Female but most of my spirit guides are female. Bear speaks of intuition, dreaming, introspection, love, stillness and mediation. Deer brings creativeness, regrowth, abundance, and healing. Beneath these two is a layer of earth which helps to ground the airy energy of the Mother Owl. I put two medicinal cacti on each side and this time I used the tradition blue and pink flowers to symbolize the male and female aspect of right and left. To balance the ying- yang energies. In the heart of the owl bursts a "seed of life' pattern. I chose to use red as the base (seed part). Red is the root from which all else is born so it was only fitting. The colors radiate from there creating this beautiful flower. The petals do not begin until blue, blue is about our thoughts and purple is about our consciousness and spiritual connection.... The Larger flower that radiates from there has square centers with little circles in them. This symbolizes people within what we believe to be boundaries, but really they don’t exist as the rainbow continues to radiate in all directions. It reminds us that life is so much bigger than we can feel, or observe... There are no limits only possibilities. This flower does have an edge but only for the purpose of adding space. I really wanted to include origin here. We are all star seeds, and it is a sheer miracle that we are here in this way. To me this is about gratitude and connectedness. This Mother Owl is not only beautiful... She is powerful medicine chalked full of meaning and purpose.
This was a piece that I drew in April 2012. I used colored pencils and sharpie marker.
This print really pops! The picture here on Etsy simply does not do it justice! Also in the print that you receive, there will be no Moon Motions across it. I do this to protect my art work.
