For some reason…

Venus Transit

Oh Goddess of this Planet!

For some reason She called me into Her.
For some reason my life unfolded beautifully.
For some reason I forgot Her.
For all the reasons struggle knocked on my door.
For many reasons I wept.
For divine reasons I heard Her calling again.
For some reason She embraces me.
For unknown reasons  I laugh again.
And for no reason the breeze revives my being, the sun ignites my desires, the ocean stills my mind, and the earth melts my barriers.

“The Dripping Yoni”

the dripping yoni

Last week I removed from my car this painting. I created it during an Intuitive painting workshop over four years ago. Since then a lot has happened! I moved across the country, I got a new job, I built a romantic relationship, I turned 40, my mother transitioned to the spirit world, I developed a new relationship with my body, etc. I could go on and on describing all the changes that occurred inside and out.

This fun painting is a “yoni”. Yoni is a sanskrit word given to the female genitals in the Tantra world. I named this painting “the dripping yoni”.

What intrigues me is how did I not bring her out before? It was face down laid flat in my trunk for all this time.

What was so potent about this painting that I had to keep it the trunk for four years?

What was she dripping with that inspired this creation and then I couldn’t find a “place” for her in my life? What was She expressing then that I gave it one visual outlet and then shut her up?

What am I ready for now that I wasn’t four years ago?

Hmm, I wonder what my life would be like if I offered Her several ways of expression in the world?

Ahhh, I wonder….
