Hello, my dears!
The special time from the
December 21st to January 6th
December 21st is the winter solstice, at this point day and night are of equal length. And with that, the 12 rough nights begin.
6 nights of the old year and 6 nights of the new year.
Now is the time to let go of the old and make room for the new. Another subtle tool of purification is the old tradition of incense.
Letting go and cleansing my theme of the year:
In the last few months I have carried out an intensive purification of my life. I gave away, sold, gave away everything that no longer fits into my life or if it was no longer usable, I threw it away.
It was an exciting and also tiring time.
Only photos of events that remind me of good times were allowed to remain and objects that just no longer fit me were allowed to go. The aim of this long process was that in the end only what is beneficial and helpful to me and is good for me is left in my life.
Because whenever you pick up old things that you don't have a good memory of, then you remember that time and bring the event into the present and live through the old experience in the now. Yes, and you continue to manifest that feeling in your life.
Bit by bit I have searched all areas of the house, my digital files, thought patterns, what is allowed to go now.
I was almost addicted to finding something again to put in a box and give away. Sustainability was also important to me, I carefully passed on all things when they were still intact.
I have also heard from many people that they tidied up and cleaned their homes extensively during the 1st lockdown.
It's important to me that I have what I want in my life and not what others expect of me, for example what an artist has at home, or what a young woman needs to know. During this process, I also went through the various stations of my life in fast forward and understood so much more about the world, society and myself. I'm so glad I'm where I am.
In these stormy times it is important to be at peace with yourself!
Christmas is coming and the new year is just around the corner. Now people are decorating their houses and getting ready for the festival on December 24th and also for the new year 2021. I love to see the different Christmas lights people put on. Everyone decorates their home according to their taste and style.
New beginning - the symbol of the butterfly
For the process of change and the transformation represents the butterfly.
I worked on the painting "Transformation" for over a year:
I started with a public painting and dance performance in autumn 2019 to the live compositions of my husband Alex Dolphin.
Over the course of the year I then applied several layers of paint with my new painting medium Heilwasser using the glaze technique and let the motif mature.
My constant intention at work was "healing on all levels" and as I always put it in my mind whenever I drink a glass of water: "Rescue and harmonious development for this world". A quote from the Russian healing theory.
Well I completed this wonderful magical creature in gold and phthalo blue in the lead up to Christmas this year.
The butterfly not only stands for transformation and new beginnings, it is the symbol for lightness, happiness and playfulness. All qualities that we so urgently need at this time!
I sincerely wish you a wonderful Christmas, a happy end to 2020 and a smooth start to the new year!
May you leave behind all old burdens that can weigh you down and start the new year full of new strength and energy!
With artistic, creatively lively greetings!
If you would like to integrate the butterfly into your life and fly into the new year with the fine light-filled vibrations, then you can bring this painting to your home.
