Spirit Animal Collage





I miss you all! I am having some severe pain that the doctors are having difficulty diagnosing. Kidney stones, shingles... I have had many tests, etc. to no avail. This part of my journey is quite difficult. I am doing a lot of acupuncture treatments along with pain management which I am hopeful may help me eventually-but not yet...

This is the first piece of artwork that I have been able to do over the past month. It is a very healing piece. It even has a piece of my red fox's tail and a feather from the "horn" of my great horned owl! And a photo of me with George, of course! The coins of abundance fell onto the collage at the very end...at one in the morning to be exact!

When I look at this creation, I have the sense that my spirit is returning to my body following the surgery...It is just a bit of a rocky reentry to the atmosphere of my life...

I had a sense that all is not well with you.

OMG you are so creative! This is such a supurb idea. Yep, I have been turning my head, getting close to the monitor to take it all in. As always, your art is fascinating.

I want you to feel better. Sending healing thoughts to you. Please let me know what the diagnosis is.

Lots of love to you.
Carol

Oh Camilla -- There is so much abundance in your artwork, in your spirit and in your life. I think the fact that your pictures won't come out right no matter what you do is representative of where you are right now and it is manifesting itself on your blog. Wow, how powerful your energy must be. I hope that you begin to feel energized, pain-free and whole again soon. Sending you lots of love and strength, Susan

Hihihi, I think maybe you got a little bit of Coyote medecine - that's why your pictures are upside down :o)

Do you know that the lion is one of the symbols of Shakti (the power, the goddess mother and better half of Shiva) ?

I am really sorry to hear you are in pain, I sincerely hope you get well soon.

Love,

Hélène

Those animals are definitely playing games aren't they - having fun!

Surrender is the best policy and have fun too.

Then you could try retaking the photos in a way that won't require rotating...

Love the collage any way round!

And sending you pain relief from afar.... may the pain reduce until all you are left with is that which you need to let you know what your body needs.

Yes. It is a bit of Coyote medicine combined with my state of mind and body right now! I like the playful suggestions of the trickster...

I still am finding it frustrating that I cannot make any of my photos come out straight...I will keep trying!

Thanks for the support!

Camilla

I had the same problem with my iphoto program one day--maybe it was the full moon or something!

I am so sorry you are not feeling well and that you do not know the full story yet. But you should be proud of yourself that you have done this amazing piece while you are in pain and unwell.Please keep us posted with your progress.xoxo
