A Faery Tale Come True ~ Entering October with Inspiration
This sacred tattoo design has been a long time in the works, percolating behind the scenes and then emerging at just the perfect timing. It’s also the last of the commissions I took on when I reopened this creative space.
Creativity is a seen and unseen process and I find it to flow best when I align with the energy streams, rather than trying to make a round peg fit into a square hole. If the energy doesn’t fit, don’t try to force it.
I’m grateful that the beautiful souls I get to work with are as flexible as I am, as this truly supports divine unfolding with inspiration that knows just when is time to manifest into form.
The design you see in its wholeness above, and in close-up portions below, is a full left arm piece from shoulder to elbow with some of the design aspects flowing gently beyond the shoulder at top and toward the clavicle at front. I’ve had the honor of creating two other large designs for this soul and they all merge together through shoulder blade and upper back/heart chakra areas.
As always, I love to share these sacred designs because I hear how they energetically speak to others as activators for things being journeyed through or embody the unspoken they haven’t been able to put their finger on and now feel validated and confirmed by the story encoded in the creative portal.
When I share the designs with my clients they include a very long write-up about the symbolism and meaning of everything included, but for purposes of this post I’ll just share a list of what elements are part of this tapestry in case you have trouble picking out all of the details:
- Douglas Fir Tree sprigs and pinecones
- Mushrooms and magickal forest elements
- Teapot and cup on stack of books
- White swan with crown
- Buck with tiny flowers and mushrooms in antlers also doubles tree of life
- Winding river
- Jumping trout
- Water – winding river, falls, flowing water in general, and waves and splashes throughout
- Hedgehog on mushroom
- Hexagon portal
- Stars throughout
- Red Tail Hawk
- Goddess and luna moth – Goddess represents my version of Creiddylad – the eternal May Queen
- Full Flower/Hare Moon pouring into river
- Peonies, leave, berries and small butterflies throughout
This one I’m calling, “A Faery Tale Come True,” as it is the alchemy of ingredients from childhood merging with my client’s future self and who she’s becoming – so in general, her essence and the ingredients that support and make up that journey of who she is.
This is the faery tale story of what once seemed only to be whispers of dreams, imagined into being.
And I find that energy to be prevalent in the field of experience right now…that of all the things we’ve wondered about, felt, came to know, or knew on some level as being our gifts or important aspects of who we are and how will form the way we show up in life in greater embodiment along the journey, becoming more accessible, tangible, and increasingly and easily manifested.
I share this design as a doorway to your own potential being affirmed, realized, and embodied in greater depths.
In the last couple of weeks since being back home I’ve noticed another uptick in manifestation taking place across the board with intents and things I’ve focused on creating and supporting for the highest good. Too many to list out, but it speaks to me of how we are so able to tune our frequencies into the kind of alignment that manifests more and more naturally these days if we make it a priority in our lives to believe and nurture that way of life with our feelings, thoughts, and actions consistently. I always use my own life as a laboratory for experiments and I like to be curious and open to how much more I can create, as I know that anything we each do becomes part of the ocean we all as a collective swim in.
Look at all these magickal Algiz Runes I found on one hike. I kept giggling each time one showed up on the trail. The faeries were giggling along with me, as I continue focusing on turning work into fun and just being. I was also very grateful for all this powerful energy they were surrounding me with.
I feel like October will be a freer feeling month of experience from what we’ve been through so far this year. Perhaps for some, even a time to rest and reflect on the energy you have at hand to mold anew with.
Here, we’ve been so grateful to have the clearest air we’ve seen in months, which provided a lot of outdoor activity in nature that we love. It’s also been a time of completion for things and freeing up space.
The fire is now 91% contained and that’s a huge gift even through a lot of fire weather warnings we’ve continued to ebb and flow through. I’ve continued sending energy to it all, which is something I do for anything I want to see more of and create more of in life….I don’t stop flowing the energy, and in doing so, more energy flows through me and the more natural this feels to be like breathing and less like work. October is a winding down month for fire watches, so the energy feels in transition while the seasons of course are changing too.
We’re actually going to be away starting tomorrow the 2nd through October 12th and having things energetically where they are makes us feel like this time away will be indicative of cultivating the path ahead we are envisioning from a clear and supportive space. It’s a space we’re keeping a bubble around, as it’s important to us to have this time.
This is kind of a belated celebration for us of markers in our life, so I’m looking forward to the clean slate to truly let go and receive all the gifts that it offers.
There’s one blog I feel might come through during my time away, which I’ve been preparing over the weeks, but holding off on until given the green light. It involves the new offering I mentioned so keep an eye out, but the rest of the time I’ll be away in my own little world.
In the meantime, here’s Lee’s October 2021 Energy Update that I think you’ll find supportive, as always.
As he mentions near the end, creativity and innovation continue on an all-time high, which speaks to me of all the potential new things I think we’re going to see light up more and more, as we each step into ourselves even more fully and embrace the energy wanting to move through us. He talks about “the importance of you bringing yourself back to creating the life you want, the world you want to see, and giving yourself to that process.”
What inspires you right now and for the month of October to invest yourself more fully into?
