Seven years ago I began a journey. A journey which has led me to places I never dreamed I would go, people I never believed I could ever meet, let alone form friendships with. A journey which led me from the deep blackness of grief and depression back into the light. A journey which has led me to this point today...
Today I took my signature painting "The Triple Goddess" off the wall and put her back on my easel. Seven years ago, I painted her. She hasn't been finished all this time. Until now I have been looking for the final pieces to complete her. Today, this morning, I found them all.
Yesterday, in a small box in my treasure chest, I found a piece of malachite. I looked at it, caressed it and then put it aside. This morning I woke up after a dream and went straight to the malachite and picking it up, I walked down the hallway and placed it in the centre of the mandala. It was a perfect fit. It was just perfect. So this morning, I took the Triple Goddess down and began to repaint her.
The malachite waits on the altar...
Malachite has been called the "mirror of the soul". It is variable in its condition. It reaches the inner feelings of the person and reflects what is there, negative or positive. It will always reflect how you feel, if you feel negative don't wear Malachite. It reminds us that we have a dual nature and it is up to each person to know and rule his own person. Malachite is a birthstone for the zodiac sign of Libra (me) and is just perfect for the heart centre!
