Discovering a Master in a new aspect
Recent work has led me to come to the conclusion that over time, as in tens of thousands of years, all things morph and can become the complete opposite of the original. Several months ago I was compelled to start a large work depicting Isis. This project has taken the longest and been the most challenging of any other mediumship work I have undertaken so far, for many reasons.
My knowledge of Isis before this project was based on information gleaned from many different sources over my current lifetime. I had in the last few years added to that knowledge base by reading the Manley P. Hall book, The Secret Teaching of All Ages. In fact I just pulled this book off the shelf and I had it bookmarked at the Table of Isis.
While a lot has been written about Isis, it all relates to her role in Egyptian pantheon. She was the High Priestess for many hundreds of years, reincarnating to hold the position over and over. And while this last bit of knowledge came to me through a channel for Isis, if you ask anyone about Isis they will tell you she was an Egyptian goddess.
What is not written much about though is her origin in Atlantis. Hall mentions Atlantis but has no actual information to share as to the Atlantean Isis in appearance or function. Actually the channel I have referred to above, was at the time working almost exclusively with Isis.
I had started planning my painting just before having a conversation with the channel, whom I am going to call Sally for convenience. The painting I envisioned would show Isis stepping forward with her wings outspread. In my vision, Isis had children all around her, children of all colors and most of them babies. I was curious of this direction since my readings up to then did not describe Isis as associated with children.
This idea is what compelled me to ask Sally about Isis. In a casual conversation Sally began to channel Isis and told me that my idea was correct except her children, her babies are the Elementals!
The Elementals? Isis said that she works with the Elementals and that she has huge wings. I got the huge wings part. In fact I was wondering how to handle all that wingspan in a workable way in the painting.
Sally then came back into her body and said that Isis loves me and that she remembers me calling her little sister. Now that is cool but I still haven’t remembered when I said that (previous lifetime for sure); even though I know I was a priestess of Isis in a previous lifestream. I have had a few incarnations in Egypt and I was in Atlantis as well.
So I had some new information that was revamping my idea for the painting. At the time I became so busy with 3D life in general and projects specifically I found I could not put a lot of meditation time into the painting. I started to feel kind of bad about it.
I feel that when Spirit comes to me for a painting or other co-creation that I am in partnership and I have to uphold my end of the process. It is a commitment I take seriously, which is one reason why when I’m unsure how to proceed I get anxious.
I let the days slip by and did not move forward with Isis, until one day about a month after my conversation with Sally/Isis, Sally called me out of the blue. She said that Isis insisted she call me and wanted to let me know that she knows I am stalled on the painting and that she thinks it’s because I don’t know enough about Isis.
Okay, cool. Then Isis began to talk through Sally. Isis said that my idea for the painting is correct but that I am confused about the Elementals.
This was correct. I had no idea how to put representatives of the Elementals into the painting. I had considered there are Air (sylphs), Water (undines), Fire (salamanders) and Earth Elementals (elves, gnomes etc.) and that is as far as I got.
Isis implied that her depiction could downplay the strong historical reference to her as only Egyptian and introduce her in a more wholistic way that honored her Atlantean roots. She was requesting an image that would show the mission of Isis as one of uniting Elementals and Humans.
This would serve to renew the memory of Elementals and Humans working together on the planets. This was to be an image that would honor the Elementals and their journey.
Isis said that she works with the leaders of all Elementals and that the role of Humans is to recognize all beings as vital for the well being of the planet.
Isis said that Fire element is represented by the Salamanders and that her hair is flame, blue black flame with round tips. Earth element is represented by the Gnomes and Elves and that all winged creatures (sylphs) are around her, especially colorful butterflies and fairies. Isis said that she works with the undines and swims with dolphins and rides whales.
At this point Isis interjected that humans keep looking up at the pollution and soon the planet’s waters will rise up their feet and surprise them if they do not start taking care.
Isis also said that she has a good friend, Luara, who is a leader of the Elementals, who is also a partner of Neptune. Together Luara and Isis manage all concerns of the Elementals. I said that I see Isis with scales on the lower part of her body. Isis confirmed this but said that the scales are rounded not pointed like a snakes scales.
I also said that I see her with green eyes and she confirmed that saying they are all shades of green. So, as you can see I was given a lot of information and guidance for the painting. This was not a simple portrait. I had to consider composition and a lot of elements. Elemental elements!
I thanked Isis for contacting me. I thanked Sally as well for this vital conversation. How fortunate I am! But it was a few more weeks before I worked out the details and what media to use.
I really wanted to do this in oil but the timing was not good, I needed to work quicker than oil. The draw back to pastel was I wouldn’t be able to get super detailed unless the whole painting was humungous.
I compromised and went with pastel on a 30” X 22” panel and it was fun! This panel is an Aquabord with pastel ground applied. It all started to come together over the next three weeks.
Most days I could only work 2-3 hours at a time. I am channeling the whole time. A few days I would stop and my hands would be huge and almost gummy from the mediumship.
The result is as you see very colorful. The eyes of Isis were a detail I kept coming back to. I would change them and then they would end up looking the same! They are big, too big, but that is what Isis wants. These are not the eyes of a human.
Isis is taking care of her children the Elementals and it seems to me she is moving forward, being assertive in her efforts. There is urgency in protecting the Elementals and the planet.
Isis on planet Earth is not just an Egyptian High Priestess. She is at core the unifying Principle between the Elementals and Humans. Embrace the Mystery.
