ACTIVITY FOR THE NEW MOON: MAKE AN INTUITIVE COLLAGE

MY INNER PEACEMAKER, DIGITAL ARCHETYPAL COLLAGE, 2017

I OFTEN MAKE VISION BOARDS OR COLLAGES TO CALL FORTH THE EMOTIONAL RESONANCE OF A CHARACTER TRAIT I AM SEEKING TO EMBODY MORE. I RARELY SHARE THEM BUT THIS ONE WAS READY TO BE SEEN. MORE THAN A MANIFESTATION TOOL FOR EXTERNAL BLESSINGS, INTUITIVE COLLAGING IS AN INNER ALCHEMY FOR CONTEMPLATION, HEALING, SELF-CARE AND TRANSFORMATION

TO CALL FORTH THE PEACE OF MIND THAT'S NEEDED TO EXPRESS YOUR TRUE VOICE IN THE WORLD, I INVOKED SOME OF MY FAVORITE ICONS OF STRENGTH AND COURAGE: THE QUEEN OF SWORDS TAROT CARD, JOAN OF ARC, EGYPTIAN GODDESSES SEHKMET AND MAAT, SHIVA, AND OF COURSE, KATNISS EVERDEEN - THE DEMETER OF MODERN CINEMA. 

BY CREATING A VISUAL ANCHORPOINT FOR A CONCEPT AND MEDITATING ON ITS PERSONAL ASSOCIATIONS, YOU ENCODE YOURSELF WITH THE ENERGY OF THE IMAGES. YOUR PERCEPTION OF THE WORLD IS INFLUENCED, IN PART, BY THE PICTURES YOU SHOW YOURSELF ON A DAILY BASIS. CHOOSE WISELY!

THE POINT ISN'T TO MAKE THE MOST AESTHETICALLY PLEASING OR EXPERTLY DESIGNED OR TRENDY ASSORTMENT OF IMAGES -- BUT TO MAKE SOMETHING THAT TRULY SPEAKS TO YOUR HEART. WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES? HOW DO YOU REALLY SEE YOURSELF, BEYOND THE TIDES OF THE TIMES? HOW WOULD YOU PRESENT YOURSELF IF YOU REALLY DIDN'T CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE'S PERCEPTIONS? YOU MAY JUST RECALL A PAST LIFE, A FUTURE INCARNATION, AND FIND YOUR HEART EXPANDED.

WITH LOVE,
ROSE
