Forget looking for earthly role models, because there aren’t many; and even when we find them, they live their own lives and not ours. We must look instead inside ourselves. The Goddess doesn’t enter us from outside; she emerges from deep within. She is conceived in consciousness, born in love, and nurtured by higher thinking. She is integrity and value, created and sustained by the hard work of personal growth and the discipline of a life lived actively in hope.
~Marianne Williamson, A Woman’s Worth
This painting is from my Chakra/Goddess series. She represents the Crown Chakra- our connection to the divine within.
Most of us are constantly looking for something outside of ourselves to make us feel this level of beauty, connection, and peace. How many rude awakening does it take before we finally realize that it has been there all along; patiently waiting for us to simply create space for her. This is a personal journey and no two are the same; you arrive when you arrive, and once you have arrived, you long to get closer and closer–and you will!
