PEAKING GODDESS 3rd EYE BEE
A story about the bee as the creator of paradise within the 3rd eye, the inner realm of consciousness. The uroboric energies of the snake (death/rebirth cycles) and the pollen colored energies of the sun, together manifest the emanating fruits of abundance seeded within our heart and soul. Swirling energies shaping all that is unfolding and blossoming into creation, our inner dreams and visions coming true.
......the graceful lean onto thy sister, bodies of floral emanation, the supporting rituals of birthing, healing, and the burying of bones. sisterhood, when women bond together in community, an alchemy takes place. It is the connecting of women, sharing and caring, co-creating, for the betterment of the community.
In the middle center sky, the 'Hunab Ku' symbol bridges the two worlds as one, where the opposite is mirrored as being the same. spiraling up thru the blossoming world of feminine abun 'dance', 13 bees engage in the life-giving dance of Gaia, the infinity dance of the bees singing of the wild, non-conforming, adjusting, flowing, nature of the feminine. The moth's dance is in the darkness, ever vigilant in the path to follow the light, it reminds us to use our dreams and deep inner knowing, to navigate through the darkest times of our lives, resulting in the extraordinary beauty of a soulful, spirited, winged life.
The 13 bees carry a written message on their painted bodies, it begins with the bottom bee and continues to the last bee there on the bosom/shoulder of the forward facing sister. The message is written in the ancient Theban, runic script, and says "Benevolent bees unite magical forces dancing colors creation to protect and serve earth" ... a gift of words given by a fellow bee lover.

'Bees work for the good of the whole'
Each piece of 'bee art' begins with a concept, an allegorical fantasy idea that combines some of the many impressive, magical, inspiring qualities of the bee. As the artwork develops, more of the story unfolds into the imagery, through symbols and figurative references cultivated from research about the bee. The artwork is created from different mediums, paintings, graphite drawings, pen and ink illustrations, and black and white drawings that have been colored in. Each image has many variations, as the artwork is re-edited through a digital process, into many different possibilities. After the imagery is complete, the story is written.
Oh bee of wide-winged open heart of joy ...
... the tiny hummingbird has the largest heart of all animals, 2.5% of its body weight. The bird hovers to pollinate and collect nectar, flapping its wings in a figure 8, just as the bee dances its vibrational messages in the figure 8, the sign of infinity. The hummingbird is known symbolically, as a guide in opening up to love. Tireless to journey long, resilient, adapting, accomplishing what seems to be impossible, the tiny bird shows the path to finding a love that is true to the heart and soul. Mandala cored, sacred wombed with a cone of ever ripening berries, both bee and hummingbird fly through our lives gracing it with joy and light, pollinating our dreams with abun'dance in beauty and nutrition.
OWL BEE / 2020 VISION
In these past years I have seen the owl become an iconic animal. When I began to merge the owl with the bee, I journeyed into the symbolism that humanity has derived from the majestic bird. Both bee and owl are 'in danger' , with the bee being responsible for the survival of humanity through the pollination of our plant life / food source. What we are seeing in the owl that is absolutely significant at this time? She has extraordinary vision. Owl can see in all directions as her neck allows her to swivel 270 degrees, that we can call upon the combined power of mind, body, spirit and emotions. She lives in the dark world, magical, mysterious, and sustains the ancient wisdoms. She is a symbol of the feminine, of the great dance of dirt, plant, air, and water. Perhaps my own greatest inspiration from the owl is that she has the courage to face threat without retreat. In this image, I created a wing of delicate, intricate Celtic inspired mastery, to illustrate the flight of freedom that we can experience when guided by the ways of the natural world. I connected the symbols of healing and regeneration with the web of life, all empowered by a solar sun. 2222 is a master number that beckons us into powerful insights and soulful mastery inspired by the angelic realm. In these times, perhaps the critical message coming from the owl is to confront and move past these fear driven energies, to embrace our our truest selves that will allow us to take back the health and well being out our existence on this planet, restoring the divinity of the bee and correcting the environmental issues that are putting the bee's existence at risk.
OM INFINITY QUEEN BEE
OM dusted traveler of rhythm and
OM starry creature, spiral
mapping, leap and dive
She of the yellow ripened pearls to spread
She with the crowned flora found gracing her head
She gathers to seed
She carries to give
She scatters to bloom
She causes to live
The dance of infinity is what she delights,
With movements of cosmic uroboric insights.
Curvaceous, unending and birthing in threes,
Her births are protected and guided by trees.
She is the feeling of breath and of tone,
She is the seeing of hue and of bone.
