My days have been stressful, of late. My workroom at the office has been lacking for me, and not providing the atmosphere necessary for the type of work that I am doing. These are my plans and rituals...
First step, is to set-up an alter in one of the corners to Brigidh and Airmid. I will have a candle that will be lit every day to Brigidh, to light the fires of healing for my clients. I will have a cauldron available, filled with sea, with stones around it for my clients to place their intentions for the day or their massage, should they wish. I will also have my bells with me, to perform the morning set-up and evening break-down ritual and to cleanse the room should I find it necessary.
The next step, will be to finish my paintings. They will be placed above the alter. One will describe the meaning of the fire - "The spark of the fire, is the passion that moves us through life." The other will describe the meaning of the sea - "Water is fluid, so that we may move through the landscape of life. Navigating through its hills and valleys."
On one wall, I will be hanging my Triskele tapestry, not only to cover the lack of care my landlord has given to that wall, but also to add the sacred 3 for whichever meaning my clients choose to attribute to it.
My window covering I will have to make. I will be visiting an art store for purple paper. Purple has a dual meaning here - my clients are royalty to me. When they come to me, it is by their wishes that I work on them. It is also the colour of transformation, because within my hands, is the power to assist them in transforming their bodies into a united entity, instead of just a vessel, through which they house their being. On this paper, I will be painting, in black, a Triskelion, in Japanese calligraphy style. Much to mimic a shoji screen and allow a little light in, but also show the weaving of life in the circle through the different realms and unite them, as my clients will be uniting themselves within their bodies.
