Turtle Dream Limited Edition Mounted Print 16" x 16" (Print size 12" x 12")
Meditating on this mandala is expansive and helps bring you a joyful and playful energy
This piece is based on a very vivid dream of being in a clear turquoise ocean swimming with an absolutely beautiful turtle. The turtle seemed to be playing with me. Swimming up and nuzzling into me almost. The dreamturtle seemed to long for fun. It longed for letting go and for trusting. For coming out of it's shell and simply playing and being utterly in the moment.
When I was working on the painting, a real sense of fun also came into the process. The colours, the shapes and everything about this painting seem to be playful. I am finding myself in more fun situations in waking life too. Laughing more, playing more and letting go of the hard shell of seriousness. My childhood was not one were fun was particularly celebrated, but rather more seriousness was the thing. In the shadow parts of ourselves can lie absolute gems waiting to be uncovered. And they are not always bad things that lurk in the shadow part. My own creativity had lain dormant in the shadow for many years, and so too had this fun aspect of self. The turtle may seem to have a very hard, exterior shell and yet underneath there is much softness, gentleness and playfulness. And this dream turtle revealing this aspect of herself to me has invited me to bring back and nourish that playful part of myself. To heal my inner child. Not a bad night's work for a dream I'd say! What beautiful gems might be hidden in your shadow and are you open to receiving them?
