A few weeks ago, I received an email from a gorgeous woman, Belinda, who wanted to commission me to do a Custom Soul Story artwork for her dear friend’s birthday.
It was such a dear delight to create this for Belinda & Chantal. It was so apparent just how much Belinda loves, adores and supports her friend, and how much she wanted to honour who she is on her birthing day.
Belinda emailed me a photograph of Chantal, and a description of her favourite colours, her gifts and the loving messages to remind her of. When I read her email, I smiled from ear to ear. I felt so blessed to be witness to the beautiful love and friendship between them, and also to sense the amazing souls and goddesses these two women are.
(Happy Birthday Goddess Chantal! It was a blessing to be a part of your celebrations!)
Whenever I am creating custom artworks to honour goddess women, I just trust that whatever needs to be said, drawn, created, documented, honoured will come flowing out from my ink pen onto the paper. My heart fills with joy as I see the image emerge. My spirit dances as I feel & know the gifts, blessings and lessons of another woman, another Goddess.
Some weeks ago, a dear circle sister & mermaid friend led a writer’s workshop. Gathered around her table were old friends & friends I had just met that day. At the end of the day, one of these new friends wrote me a poem, and in it was a piece of prose about how much I love women.
I laughed when I read that, and made a joke about how much I loved hunky men named Chris first and foremost. But after the laughter, I had a moment of feeling like my soul had just been recognised. I love all spirits ~ men, women, animals, mama earth; but I have such a deep affection, love and respect for women, their hearts, their souls, their stories and the Goddess that lives inside them.
I want to remind them of their beauty, strength, uniqueness, gifts and divinity. I want to remind them just what a goddess they are.
Some mornings I wake up and have no idea which way to turn, left, right, up or down. I lose my faith in myself, in this world, in my journey, in the knowing that all is well and all will be well. Then I ask myself: if you are someone else, what would you tell them Leonie?
You are a Goddess.
You are divine.
Your journey is sacred.
All is well.
From me to you,
Remembering what is True.
