This is the Shaman Ritual of 'Northern Lights' where I transform this painting of a polar bear into the spiritual journey, where we cross over with the ancestors up into the ether as it guides us through the light.
The polar bear is a Divine animal that is one of my personal totem animals, and is a healer, protector, nurturing soul, and a freedom keeper. It helps us with meditation when we want to connect to our higher self, and is an excellent animal ally to shaman journey with. The Northern Lights have always been a mystical, and awe inspiring event, where the colors dance across the stars like the spirits passing by, saying their last goodbye.
The Winter is a time for transformation, for rest, for inner wisdom, purification, clarity, hope and release. It is the season of self discovery, and for identity, where you leave behind what you no longer need in your life, and reach for a higher purpose. Created using watercolor, ink, gel pen, metallics, essential oil of clove for protection and warmth, incense, palo santo for positive vibration, intentional energy and moon charged ritual salts.
Created on 11x14" 140lb professional archival watercolor paper with watercolor pigment, metallic paint, ink, gel pen, ritual salts, Clove essential oil, intentional energy of rest, ancestor connection and protection.
