SoulCollage® Madonnas Universal Council I am one who is deeply drawn to the Madonna and images of the divine feminine. Lately I have missed my own mom so much more than usual and she has been gone since Dec. 14, 1968. When I close my eyes I imagine myself on her lap, head burrowed against her soft breasts while she reads Poppy the Fairy. There is such power in the feminine, ideally nurturing, ever-teaching and protecting, the one who loves unconditionally, the one who gives birth. Thank…
Committee Suit I am one who was married for 27 years and raised 3 children, but--. We separated in 1984 and divorced in It was one of the darkest periods in my life.
Psalm to Sophia. I am one who has sometimes despaired in this valley of tears and no longer know who or what to turn to for comfort. So, I turn to you, Sophia, wisdom.
SoulCollage Card - Committee Suit - Summer Girl I am one who must carry some hibernation traits as November-May, even in Southern California, is challenging emotionally and physically. I function fine outwardly, but I long for more light and warmth. In summer I come alive.
SoulCollage Our Lady of the Rising Sun Council I am one who tracks my hours by the rising and setting sun and by the cycles of nature. I am every woman who births and raises children. I nurture, protect and teach the young and I care for the elderly. I live in a harsh climate so I adapt to the temperature, the winds, storms and days of dusty quiet.
SoulCollage card - Council - Self as Cello I am one who has been called “fine tuned” sometimes with the implication that I am overly sensitive, and yet I grow excited when I see orchestras tuning up because I know beautiful and varied music will spring forth. I like to think of myself sometimes as a cello, fully trusting the cellist to play me as well as he/she can. Sometimes I have a hard time trusting someone else to be in charge of me. This depicts Higher Power and me.
Christ the Redeemer Council suit I am one who, when I was younger, seeing the massive art deco statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro was on my travel bucket list. Now that I am old I am content reading about it and seeing the amazing photos and documentaries about its construction. Spiritual teacher James Finley speaks of falling into the abyss and that's trusting me at the top.
I am one who has embraced the custom of the Day of the Dead the past several years. My living room altar honoring my beloved departeds is on display for October.
The Childbearer Council I am one who never experienced pregnancy but I did raise three adopted children from birth to adulthood. I have had a lifetime of admiration for pregnant women; it’s a miraculous process. When my daughter gave birth to her daughter 29 years ago, I was the second coach in the delivery room along with the father. My daughter wanted me to experience childbirth since I had not done it myself. I am so grateful she gave me that gift. Motherhood itself is an overarching…
SC-Council Don’t Cry Lady Liberty I am one who loves the United States of America with all my heart. I am weeping along with Lady Liberty because somehow or other we seemingly have elected a clown, a buffoon, a man without morals as our President. I respect that as Americans we have different points of view regarding politics, but my fear isn’t blue or red. I impatiently believe in divine order. Spirit, please don’t let our President impulsively destroy our earth.
SoulCollage® Committee An Idea Whose Time Has Come I am one who became very discouraged during the election season and extremely sad with the outcome of the election. Until the Women’s Marchs around the world on Jan. 21, 2017, it was hard to keep on keeping on. I let my fear partially paralyze me. I am no longer young, but I feel like the collective unconscious heard all of us—women, men and those who are treated unfairly and countless numbers of people showed up in solidarity.
I am one who sometimes pretends to be invisible and simply observe what is going on.
SoulCollage - Grateful for Another Day Committee I am one who is 79 and well aware that I’m in the winter of my life. When I get maudlin about my own health problems and the illnesses and death of so many family members and friends, I love to retreat into the childhood I keep in my head. I was so innocent and trusting and filled with optimism and energy. I feel grateful I have had the long life I’ve had; I’ve gotten to see my children’s children. I’m grateful for another day and I am also…
SoulCollage - Council - Council Earth Angel I am one who has long reverenced our earth and worry that we may slowly destroy it. How anyone can deny climate change boggles my mind. I think there are many earth angels all around us but when I see that title, I am thrown back to my teen years and recall slow dancing to Earth Angel.
SoulCollage - Our Lady of the Pacific - Council suit. I am one whose favorite art theme is the divine feminine. I like to portray her all around the world, cross-culturally. She is a positive powerhouse of universal healing in all her portrayals.
Council - Artemis I am one who admires the Goddess of the moon and the hunt. She is patron to animals and children. One of three virgin goddesses she is often considered to be a warrior. Beware men. Look at her longingly when she is bathing, and she might turn you into a stag whose dog companions will rip you apart. I am one who also is a protector and I honor the earth.
