Initiation - The Waters of Avalon
Updated: Sep 7
There are four ways and possibilities for things to unfold. Use your intuition. Which way do you want to go? Which option are you choosing? If you cannot see the outcome but can only feel it, which way is calling you?
A fifth one appears.
There is a fifth path in the middle. The one that goes straight ahead. The one you did not see initially but the one that was in front of you all along. That is the path you start walking on. The one that is straight ahead and is pointing like the tip of an arrow. What lies ahead is water. The fluid in motion.
You walk towards this body of water, circular in shape, surrounded by trees. You go in and you stand in the middle of this body of water and you allow yourself to sink right through it. You are underneath. You can feel the sun rays above, illuminating your path in the underground, in the underworld, but it is not dark.
You can breathe because the trees, its roots, are also anchoring within the water. This is the water of creation, this is where it all begins. This is where you learn to swim, this is where you learn to breathe. This is where you receive your light. This is where you learn to grow, and this is where you are held in love.
Go in as often as you need to realign with your true Self – where you dream your world into being.
There is only one path, the path that we walk onto when we are born and the one that leads us back when we transition from our physical form. We are always on the path whether we can ‘see’ it or not.
We may veer off to the left or to the right to experience and learn lessons, but we come back to the middle path. We come back to the path that we may not have seen initially, but the one that has always been aligned to our true essence and life purpose.
We come back to our hearts and we come back to the path that has always been there, the one we are creating, and the one that is unfolding in the present moment.
It is easier to receive guidance when we are grounded and aligned with ourselves following the path that we cannot always see. It does not matter whether we ‘see’ it or not, what matters is that we can feel it. What matters is that we trust that it is there. We let go of our need to control and sit within our hearts to feel where we are heading next.
This image arrived as a vision on March 29, 2020. I waited until “it was time” to bring it into form. I find these feelings so curious since I can also find it difficult to ‘trust’ the process sometimes. I finished the painting on May 9, 2020. As I reflect on it, it feels so divinely timed with the energies of the recent full moon and the current planetary alignments.
As a Soul Plan Practitioner, I am aware of the vibrational frequency that numbers carry. As a collective, we all follow the Gregorian calendar so there is a collective focus on the day where we place our energies. Where our attention goes, the energy flows.
March 29, 2020 (3+2+9+2+0+2 = 18) and May 9, 2020 (5+9+2+0+2+0 = 18) are both aligned with the soul plan energies of 18 (9), which I found very interesting because it is the energy of finality and solution (the energies of life), and also about claiming our power to offer it in love and service.
As we were entering a radical shift in our lives in March 2020, we can now look back over the past 6 weeks and reflect on the choices we were making, on how we were feeling, on what we were holding on to, and what we were letting go of? What have we been healing and where are we going? Many were challenged to look at their beliefs around life and death.
Keeping this in mind, the painting is published for you today, on May 10, 2020; on a 10 (1) day (5+1+0+2+2). On this day, the energy of direct spiritual connection and potential manifestation are at their strongest. It is a day where the energies of the masculine and the feminine are balanced, and where we find stability, connection, and healing at its strongest.
Healing affirmation for today from Soul Plan:
“I am fully connected to the Divine, to my higher self and the infinite wisdom of Source. I am a spark of divinity manifesting beingness, I am one with the onlyness. I am that…I am…”
*Initiation has an important role in marking milestones in life or in your spiritual development. It is honoring the importance of feeling connected and expressing the sacredness of life.
Initiation was created by Yassica Ferrer on canvas panel (20″ x 16″) using acrylic and gold leaf.
