Guiding Thought

Today I decide to give my heart reign. Trusting in love, assured with its gentle comfort, I invite my heart to lead me with joy and peace to joy and peace. I surrender my mind and will to my heart’s love.

I really did surrender my mind. I love the humor that is already coming out on this Journey; “Everlasting Gobstopper”, indeed!

In coloring this picture, the conglomeration of the little globules was an expression of comfort. There was something nice about the nestling of all those little circles within the surrounding gold. I don’t really know what the knife-type things are about.

The gobstopper also reminds me of frog eggs or caviar.

So, it’s interesting that this reminds me of eggs. Eggs of course being symbolic of life or new creativity, perhaps? That means symbolically, the knife-type things could be either tadpoles or sperm, or further symbolically the Shiva-Shakti energies necessary for manifestation. It definitely feels like it has something to do with creativity and union.

I’ve already figured out this journey will be more of an expression of my sub-conscious than the previous Journey of the Heart. In the first Journey of the Heart, I did not go into symbolism too much. It was much more literal—pictures of “me” and “my heart”, though cartoony and unartistic, the pictures were not so much abstract representations. This Journey, I think, will be more abstract, more symbolic; I look forward to that!

I think this is because I want to use the Journey to listen. That means letting my hand do whatever it does, even if things like crazy-eyed penguins and everlasting gobstoppers come out. There’s something more there; I just need to listen, be open, and allow myself to hear and see what it’s telling/showing me.
