^Illustration commissioned by my amazing Sister Josie, who works under the name Eleven Healing, to accompany a new series of interviews with alternative therapists from a variety of modalities.
Check out the interview, with Past Life Regression therapist Paul Williamson, here: http://www.elevenhealing.com/blog/2016/9/16/past-life-regression
It was a short notice request for the illustration, but I had most of the day free and it happened to be exactly what I was up for doing :-) I used a kind of interlacing overlaying a geometric structure, with motifs of doors opening & closing, transformation/the butterfly (done with the peacock butterfly in mind, thinking Psyche) – skulls and happy/sad faces on her wings, the candle in the darkness, the strange eye of spiritual vision, the soul-bird, the strong feminine symbol of the vesica piscis – death & rebirth – the winding threads of symbolic DNA. All fun stuff. :-)
It’s the first in what should be a series of interviews that I’ll continue doing the illustrations for, as part of the expansion of the Eleven Healing website – and so of course: if you’re ever in need of an excellent Reiki healer and all-round lovely person, based in London but also often in the Newcastle/Bournemouth/Ibiza areas, now you know where to go! ;-)
