The Hardships In Life Are The Walls Of Life's Labyrinth

I want to be intuitive to find my way in life.

I want to be still and calm to hear wisdom when it comes to offer me a clue to the great labyrinth.

Recieve directions from raindrops falling on me, ladybirds landing on me.

Listen to my wild allies and wise folk offering the path to the great spirit in the realm of the great Mystery

Artist's Description

A few months ago I thanked my mum for a book she bought me from the library sale. She wanted me to deface it and make it my own. only recently have I realised how important this book has been to me. It’s The Youngest Miss Ward by Joan Aiken and it’s been written as a Jane Austen type book. This book helped me out of some very dark times as a means to gather my thoughts and feel like me again when I felt totally broken by chronic pain. I ripped out pages and scratched words off . I painted over the pages and wrote on top and drew things. I’m not sure what exactly inspired me to write about the great spirit (I can only imagine I’d seen a western on the telly or it could have been the Tramadols ;) ) But I know that I felt desperatly let down by life and wanted to change things for the better. Shortly after I became a Reiki practitioner , I was startled by these words knowing where I was when I wrote them, because now I know nature is really there to heal and guide. But back then I wouldn’t have believed that would be as possible as I was wishing it to be.
