Day 2 done of VIVID 2020 Intentional Creativity weeklong virtual conference. I've already laughed, cried, drummed, smashed, roared, heard my name sung, meditated, soul searched, ...and painted!
There's paint on my clothes, paint on the walls, paint on the floor, paint on a faucet, paint on my phone, paint on my hands, chin and inside my shirt (I have no idea...) and yes some of it did end up on canvas.
This is step 2 of a 13 step painting process called Legend. We are looking deep inside and exploring our archetypes. It will not resemble this at all by the time I'm done. And, come to think of it, I may not resemble me either!

What surprised me the most was that this Legend painting was not an isolated creative experience, but rather it was part of a series of paintings. In 2019, I did three workshops with Nadya King where I painted three images that were included in this Legend journey. The Harvest Queen, the Cat Woman, and Vera, the Mermaid, were all helpers guiding me to my Legend experience with my ally, Eartha, the Benevolent Bear, and my oracle, Oracle of the Cherished Heart. These paintings tell of the preparation I experienced before going through the veil with my bear ally to meet my oracle. The essence of my Legend story was the healing of my heart and the transformation of my family clan wounding. I continue to be awed and very grateful for this wonderful creative experience, both the painting and the writing..... especially the writing.

What surprised me most was how many shifts I actually experienced. I have been on a personal quest for most of my life and I have done a huge amount of work on many aspects of both inner and outer self-care. The Legend process opened me up to embrace allowing myself to speak and be heard..... and breaching an invisibility cloak which I was not willing to part with before. Although I will admit that being invisible is convenient sometimes, being overlooked and devalued is not!

This Legend experience (my fourth) actually spoke to me about how I take for granted my luxuries and comforts. By acknowledging that part and even accepting it, I can feel greater gratitude and freedom. I had no idea why I would see a camel, an animal I have no history with and do not think about, but by the end I feel a deep connection to. Spits the camel and this clear-seeing woman. Legend is such a rich experience and not a luxury for me. It is essential nutrition and water for my soul.

In Legend I shifted from hiding to being seen.

The Legend journey was the best gift I have ever given myself and has been one of the most profound creative experiences of my recent years. Combining all the treasured elements of my life, writing, creativity and divine feminine spirituality into one sacred container from which I have emerged joyous, renewed and reawakened. I am filled with gratitude for this course and recommend it highly.
