Due to my erratic internet connection, I haven't been able to post this month's dreamboard before now, so here it is
This is a Holly Moon, as the Celtic Holly King defeated the Oak King at the Summer Solstice and now reigns over the waning year...
Amy Palko's journal prompts suggested looking at the phrase 'coming back to the Source', and what it may mean. This was in my heart and mind as I made my dreamboard, and I notice there is quite a balance between words and images...
Top right is a Man Ray image of Lee Miller on a blossom background with a quote by Ingrid Goff Maidoff
The world sparks and hums with radiance. Even when we fail to notice all still shimmers and shines.
Underneath are with words 'Emotions in Dreams' and a lovely image of a dreamcatcher girl under a full moon (I don't know who it's by), and an engraved image of a rustic study room.
Under that is a page from my quote-a-day calendar
Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Then towards the spine of my dreamboard journal is a black & white image of a wooded lake, a small painting of a woman, and Greg Spalenka postcard on which I've stuck a Yogi tea tag with the words 'The beat of your heart is the rhythm of your soul', and the words 'Touch the deep knowing within you'. I also drew a spiral over the solar plexus of the image - that's wear I 'feel' my knowledge :-)
Top right is a lovely Polaroid of a barn and a field of flowers (from an old desk calendar, I think) on which I've stuck this quote
You must return with the bliss and integrate it... The return is seeing the radiance everywhere.
Looking at it now, I'm struck by how it reflects the quote on the left-hand page in the same spot!
Under this, there's a striking image of a weeping moon and a girl catching the tears in a bowl (again, I don't know where it's from).
Next to it I've written out this quote on a journal card
Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself. And know that everything in this life has a purpose.
And underneath is a lovely printed journal card with the words 'Finding the Artist Within Me'.
To the edge of the page is another striking image of two figures opening a box of stars... It looks like the work of the same artist of the weeping moon image.
Under that is a wee sketch by a favourite artist, Cathy Cullis, and another page from my quote-a-day calendar which reads
Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light.
I'm seeing some definite themes as I look at it now - deep dark and radiant light, silence and knowing, questions and answers...
It's all there - at the Source...
I'd love to know what you think as you see my Dreamboard, and was the Holly Moon extra-bright in your sky last Saturday?
