Coming Out From the Shadows

Nancy Wait, Looking at the Self in oil and watercolor

Old-world selfies, new-world interpretation: coming out from the shadows to see myself in the light. A tumultuous eight-year period I can still feel in the pit of my stomach. The one in the hat with a deadness in her eyes was to please my then-husband and I was tired of trying to please someone else again. Number two wears a beret to show she’s an artist, but she’s still afraid to show herself.

Six years later and single again I’ve blossomed into color but paint has become war-paint. Then, having seen the strength of the Self, I can let it go. I can open to the Soul and be in a place where the sun has risen and hair doesn’t matter. It’s in the eyes of the photo I took of my reflection in the mirror when I saw something different and didn’t want to forget that’s who I was.

I am inspired to share these today because tomorrow March 18th 8pm GMT is a zoom called “Living as a Soul as we prepare for the Coming One.”

Under ‘New Era/New World’ in the Glossary it says we have entered “The next stage of planetary evolution in which the consciousness of the human and spiritual realms will blend and fuse through vibratory resonance.” Where “Humanity will enter a new world of light and consciousness in which the good, the true, and the beautiful will flourish under the governance of spiritual laws.” Let it Be.

      Dear Alithea, thank you so much. Revealing our vulnerability is sometimes the hardest thing. When I was in theater they told us to wear a suit of armor or we’d never survive. I certainly didn’t! Painting was different, and so was getting older, realizing there was no place to hide anyway. 🤭💗
