Magic Mirrors

I like to pair my photography with my writing to add dimension to the artistic package. When the writing is cut off, I also put the narrative in the writing section. I have many thoughts and concepts to write about so after viewing the pairing of image and narrative, you can read the entire text in the writing section.

I wrote a narrative titled “twin flames”, a concept differentiated from soul mates. The image and writing are in my porfolio and in the writing section. After writing about twin flames, I began to see images in twos, like magic mirrors. My awareness is heightened and the conduit of my beliefs are represented in my photography. I think in no time in our history do we need to attend to the development of our spiritual lives and the important relationships we develop to nurture our soul and spiritual awareness. More people are looking for a connection to soul to repair the damage done to our environment threatening our own existence. The development of inner vision, intuition, and spirtuality are issues that are slowly growing in importance throughout the Western world as more and more people begin to search for the path toward enlightenment. This can be seen in many different outward manifestations as people seek spiritual fulfillment through the more conventional Western religions of Christianity and the Eastern faiths of Buddhism, Taoism, Sufism and Hinduism. The tremendous surge of interest in meditation over the last twenty years is a growing sign of people’s quest for greater spiritual direction. We are moving toward a period in Human history when we will begin to see the spiritual transformation of millions of people upon the Earth. It is a time when a more enlightened higher consciousness is desperately needed to work through and solve our many social, economic, ecological, and diverse planetary problems. There is a powerful driving force at work from the higher dimensional planes which is accelerating the process of spiritual transformation and enlightenment for many. As more people begin to explore the inner guidance from their Higher Selves, they will kindle a tremendous energy for self-healing and wellness.

I have witnessed powerful psychic forces that have begun to open and cleanse the chakras and the human brain itself to activate the hidden psychic potentials of higher consciousness. These beautiful flowers symbolize the hope that we establish soulful relationships to nourish ourselves strengthening our power to join our partners and friends to heal our damaged and chaotic world. The flowers are best viewed in the larger format. As the New Age vibrations begin to affect more and more people, my belief is that the spiritual awakening of millions of sleeping minds will awaken and kindle the energies of love and healing that may eventually be able to transform the planet Earth into a place of greater peace and balance. When we begin to heal ourselves and learn that fear and misunderstanding is the root cause of much illness, distress and suffering, we will begin to replace hate, prejudice, and distrust with love and cooperation. When we are functioning in the lower mind of conscious awareness, we tend to project our own dissatisfaction, envy and resentment onto the world. Seeing our own problems and inability reflected in the faces of those around us, we exaggerate our fears and prejudices in a viciously expanding cycles. We are often afraid of owning up to our own fears, anxieties, and shortcomings. To cope with this frightening inner environment, we begin to project our fear and insanity onto the world, making it seem that the problem is coming from out there when, in fact, it originates from within our own egos. The only way to break this vicious cycle of confused thinking and illness is through love and forgiveness and a greater awareness of the healing potential of love. When we start to forgive ourselves for our perceived faults, and honestly admit that we still have a long way to grow, we begin to heal ourselves from the highest level of spirit on down to the physical. Only then can we truly love and accept ourselves. Once we love ourselves, it becomes easier to love those around us. That is not to say that there is not chaos and unrest occurring in many places throughout the world, and that there is not much discord in these times of crisis. There will likely be a worsening of the world situation before it becomes better. In order to cope with a world that has seemingly gone mad at times, we must find an inner center of peace within ourselves so that we may begin to expand our own energy of peace and harmony to encompass the troubled needy world around us. As we begin to find that center of peace and spiritual understanding, healing naturally follows. The first step of this long journey begins at home.
