WE ARE HERE in the final month of 2016. This year has been so big and magnified that I am still finding it hard to see it as a whole, trusting that the process of time will lead to deep integration. From Bali to New Zealand, Peru to Costa Rica, I have taken myself around and around to create and collaborate. I have learnt more about the reality of my human need to root than ever before - and so here I am in the hills of the Blue Mountains, nesting for the next 6 months - if I can make it that long.
There are changes in the air, and all we can do is open our arms wider and let the winds of transformation bellow, cleanse and germinate the future. .
I have been blessed over the last 6 weeks to have Merging Sessions booked every fortnight: one in Victoria, one in Brisbane and one in Sydney. Two out of three sessions have been couples, honouring their lives together for all they have grown to be throughout their own merging experience, within their lives. My ‘love research’ has been enriched with the wisdoms and sharings of these people, who open their hearts and homes to me during the 3 days process of their Merging Session. What I have learnt is that that lovers who overcome hardship together (which can often mean sticking together when times get tough) is the most significant contributing factor of LASTING LOVE & LOYAL PARTNERSHIP. That in fact, the old adage that love is not meant to be so hard might be wrong - that possibly, its not meant to be easy - AND more accurately still, LOVE is not meant to be anything at all... We attract each other in ways deeper than the skin reveals. Our energy vibrations guide us towards one another, for the lessons our soul is seeking. Love is a game of reflections. Yes, its much easier to appreciate what we like in ourselves - and initially when we meet another who we chose to connect with, we do so because we can see the qualities that we LIKE in them, and thus in ourselves. As time moves on, layers are stripped back and the reflection deepens. Yes, it's harder to face that which we don’t like, the monster that eventually rears its warty head… And how we get to a space of loving ourselves warts and all, through loving another, is a powerful and challenging game.
Both couples who booked me for Merging ceremonies came to together to honour authenticity within their relationship, after years of stripping it back, years of meeting in the middle, years of finding their way to each other without losing themselves - and losing themselves in order to find their way way to each other. The intentions of this work were clear: to HONOUR the hard work of LOVE, to CELEBRATE the JOY of sharing life, and of course, to lose themselves in the big picture of planet earth as a testament to their eternal connection to themselves, each other, and all that is.
Ultimately these artworks-to-be will be a BEAUTIFUL, personal, intimate memento of an experience deeper than a thousand words. Bu no doubt in my mind and heart that it is the experience itself, the lead up to the Merge Day and the post-production glow, that is ever more lasting and impactful in ways that words can only aspire to communication.
As 2016 folds and files into the vortex of our memories, I invite you to have a look at your life and see the transformation occuring. Sometimes it is painful, sometimes it is playful…. how have you MARKED the moment? Whether it be sitting down to write your reflections, putting colour to canvas or being Merged into the land that speaks your soul - express. Remember to express, for it is in the articulation of our hearts song that we become butterflies - and fly.
