After emerging, my I’m Alive Goddess crawled right back into the hidden place where she was living inside of me all these years. But that seems to be the way it goes. I’ve found that epiphanies are shocking when they happen, but they don’t automatically change my life. It takes time and work to change my mind and the body, where beliefs live. And I like the idea of change as a spiral. We spiral up and down (picture a spiral on its side) but are ever expanding.
So after my Goddess emerged and I was feeling a strength like never before, I started to sink. Because the goddess also brought out all those old dark feelings that had settled in me. The Goddess emerging is like dredging, she stirred everything up.
Yesterday, I woke up thinking “Today I need wings”. I needed some help to bring me back to a better place. So I gave my goddess wings. Then I found some other women in my studio that looked like they could use a lift and gave them wings too.
I stitched this piece on a vintage linen that had a green pepper in a chefs had embroidered on it. (She seemed to me to need some wings for sure). Then sewed a couple of different fabrics on it and stitched or used maker on the rest.
So she’s back and I’m happy to say, now that she’s emerged, my I’m Alive Goddess is here to stay.
