Today’s Affirmation:

“Life is sweet at its core.”

Maple tree symbolism: Balance, practicality, abundance, sweetness in life

May each breath you take today be infused with the sweetness of life. 🙂

Maple meditation 12-18-15

Trees are such spiritually sophisticated beings. I’m really grooving on them lately!

This piece started as a doodle. I had done some prayer work involving tree imagery for my friend Tanya English (a gifted healer, by the way, who does remote as well as in-person healings) a while back and she had an amazing connection with a golden Maple tree. She had asked me to do a piece of Maple art for her, but it didn’t come right away.

Then a short while back I started doodling on a long phone call, and this emerged. I hope to have time some day to use it as the basis for a watercolor. Tanya couldn’t wait, though, and printed it out as a coloring sheet!

Here is another totem animal/power symbol reading. This one is for the child of a gifted empathic healer. The feeling I got from the reading is that the child is probably gifted in this area as well. (The young woman in the painting is not a physical portrait of the child. I think it represents her soul or some aspect of her spirit.)

The reading below is edited slightly to protect the privacy of the people involved.

7 blackbirds power symbol art reading“The impression I get is of someone who is extremely sensitive, and who has a special need to connect with the natural world.

“I’m feeling that music is very important, and sound in general. Natural sounds would be good for her, like birdsong and the breeze in the treetops and the sound of water. One of those little indoor waterfalls might be something she would find delightful and relaxing. However if she was told it was there because it was good for her she would probably not like it so much.

Power symbol drawing: blackbirds, tree and nature spirit

This is the original drawing. I added a few elements to the final painting based on some of the impressions I got, which didn’t come through until a bit later.

“There are seven birds. Birds are often associated with spirit. I get the feeling the number of birds here is important. Seven is a number associated with spiritual awareness, introversion, an analytical mind, non-conformity, and natural healing.

“It feels like she’s very thirsty for the presence of nature. It might be good to take her to (a nearby botanical garden) some weekend. But don’t force it on her, and if you do, take her just one on one, don’t try to turn it into an educational field trip, just focus entirely on her and her relationship with the environment, and let her just experience it. And if she resists it, just let it go and do something else with her.
“Listening is important. She needs time and space to listen, and be listened to. I think she has need for un-structured time in her life.

“Oh, one more thing: something about hands, and smooth pebbles, and maybe water and soil. She might enjoy gardening or flower arranging. She needs to experience nature at the physical, tactile level.”

(The child’s mother told me later that the number seven is highly significant in their religious tradition (Orthodox Judaism.) It is associated with the Sabbath, amongst other things. The Sabbath being a day of rest devoted to Spirit, I believe this does relate very much to the message.)

Additional notes: Blackbirds are often associated with the creative forces of nature, mysticism and spirituality. They are also quite territorial during their breeding season, so it may be important for this individual (or her parents while she is still young) to set boundaries protecting her need for space, in order for her to fulfill her creative potential.

Spirals appear in this painting as well. Spiral imagery is symbolic of creative growth and expanding spiritual consciousness.

The tree in the painting is a young sapling, and the energy of the piece is that of Springtime – reflections of this child’s stage of life.

Most of the readings I do come through as animal symbols. Every once in a while human imagery comes in. This happens especially when I am doing a general reading (for the planet and/or humanity.) Are they nature spirits? Angels? Do they just signify higher consciousness? I’m not sure at this point. If you have any insight into this please comment!
