The Message from Beautiful Shadows: 

Intentionally grazing the inner landscape of our emotions is the key to our sacred journey. These buffalo are at peace with themselves and their emotions and they bring the capacity  to hold sacred space for you. This is especially important when conflict arises in your world so you may look upon it with the knowledge that there is something sacred to remember about yourself that you have forgotten. In truth, you are perfect and any painful situation that is showing itself to you now is an opportunity to remember your eternal well being.


The inspiration for this painting and my painting titled Eclipse comes from my continual journey for my truth through the exploration of my shadow work. This is the work of understanding my negative emotions: what thoughts and beliefs do I have that are not the same as the truth of my higher evolved self. I try to challenge all thoughts and beliefs that create negative emotion within me as they are not taking me toward what I wish to create for my life, they only create discord and take me on a path to more of what I no longer desire. I am grateful to my emotions for this reason.


All of my paintings are reflections of different aspects of myself and when I look at this painting I see the beauty in my many complex layers and journey. I am only beginning to understand how well my emotions serve me and that I do not need to fear them, although that can still be a challenge at times.


What is the difference between an animal spirit and an animal totem or power animal?

I believe animal spirits will come and go throughout your life and help you by guiding you in the way that they can according to their gifts or medicine. These gifts are the attributes that the animal carry and most animal spirits carry many gifts/attributes or medicines. You will experience the animal spirits if you do a reading with my deck The Messenger Cards or with another Animal Spirit Oracle Deck. An animal totem or Power Animal is an animal spirit that walks with you on your whole life journey whether you are aware of it or not. If you find out what your animal totem is then you will see that you exhibit many of the gifts that that animal spirit. Or, you may be repulsed or fear that animal in which case you may want to look at embracing the gifts of that animal spirit as you may be rejecting those gifts within yourself. To know your animal spirit is to know yourself better. I believe that is the secret to life! To know yourself better in whatever way calls to you and to live your life as you and nobody else. is a local Canadian artist brand offering professional art production, design of custom art for you, spiritual guidance, oracle readings, guided meditations and loads of loving energy.
