A Vow to Instinct

Yes. Indeed. Nona E has lead me to and through some ugliness this month and now she invites the spirit of Wolf into our circle.

I mentioned in my last post that she issued a message to me. Well, I'm inspired to share a wee bit of that message with you...

"Be still. Come back to center. Invite the verve back to the core. Open to it. Feel it vibrate. Feel it in your heartflame. Feel the hurt. Let down your guard. Let in the antagonist. Listen and feel ... with all your senses. Stay firm in your core, your center, don't oppose, don't compete ... simply witness." ~ Nona E

Yes. Indeed.

Wolf is a totem, an animal spirit, recognized in many paths and traditions, so it has quite a list of potential meanings, values and purposes. Yet, for me, in this circle, in this moment, Wolf invites me to nurture and renew relationship with instinct ... with my sweet and fierce intuition.

Yes. Indeed.

As it is, so shall it be.

(And since wolves howl and scavenge, I suppose some my consider such behavior akin to a ruckus, so I'm sharing this post with my painterly friends at Paint Party Friday!)

I like it! I think your feelings come out visually, and mine go into words.

Love the art ♥ I think I needed that message this month also. It's been a wacky month for sure but it's almost over :) ♥

I like what you write,, you say so much that I re-read and re-read because I do not want to miss anything important.

Super drawing of the howling wolf and I really like the layered effect you've achieved.

Beautiful painting. I love how you brought the wolf to the forefront.
I am following you from Paint Party Friday - my first linking there.

Where I live (Arizona) I often hear howling at night but the voices come from coyotes not wolves. It is crazy to hear them over the dull-roar of automobiles but they make their voices heard. And so, may I say, do you!
