Maria is a beautiful, highly sensitive, and empathic 7-year old girl. She has very deep brown colored eyes that draw you in, while reflecting back a lot of light and clarity. She is also the daughter of a dear friend; who told me that Maria was drawn to my painting titled The Eyes of Love, which I published on my website in October 2019.
Her mother asked me if I could print a copy of the painting. Since I had not printed any of my paintings before, I tried at home, at a couple of professional printing locations, and even on different types of paper, but I found it difficult to ‘capture’ the essence (or the feelings) of the artwork in a printed copy. It just didn’t feel right or the same. So, I decided to paint a new one for Maria.
When I started to draw the Merkaba (the 6-pointed star), I found it curious that I was guided to use different measurements, for some of the angles and lines, than the ones I had used in the original drawing. I was also guided to draw the eyes differently; and to use different colors from the one I had drawn before. Even though at times it felt awkward to change it, I trusted it was the ‘right way’ and dimensions. Throughout the days that I worked on it, a lot of information came through for Maria’s mother. I wrote it down so I could share it with her.
I have a love and growing interest in sacred geometry and gematria. Numbers and symbols speak (communicate) a deep and rich language that carries codes and information beyond time and space. I had been learning, throughout 2019, that most of my artwork has precise mathematical significance whose meaning would unfold in the drawing process. The images usually arrive in my mind as very basic outlines and only when I start drawing and painting do they come alive with numerical values, messages and colors.
I was guided to show the painting to my friend (the mother) first. I explained the four numerical values that I wrote down and their correlation to the drawing. The length of the triangle that makes up the merkaba is 16, the length of the ‘ears’ is 6, the shape of the outer eye is 5 and inner eye 21. Since I am a trained Soul Plan and Soul Transformation Therapist, I decided to use my Soul Plan Archetypal Tarot Deck to show her the corresponding symbol to each number; while relaying the messages I had written down. The information resonated with her and it gave her insights into her daughter’s highly empathic and sensitive nature. It also confirmed that she was on the right track with her daughter.
I found the numbers quite curious and wondered whether they matched both of their soul plans, so I asked my friend if I could look at their soul plan charts and read them together. It turned out that the 16(7) is the mother’s Soul Destiny and it is also Maria’s Worldly Talent in this life. In Soul Plan, the energy of the number 16 is about bringing spiritual frequencies and the love vibration to others in an authentic and ‘down to earth’ manner; and the number 7 is related to integration which is about trusting with an open heart to make magnetic connections. They are both working together to inspire others in a way that is uplifting above and beyond our conditioned eyes; to help others see with unconditional love; and to feel nourished and connected with their true essence.
The number 6 energy is about thought and creativity. This energy, when in balance, is about clear focus for the flow of the universe’s creativity. Maria’s mother always has paper and colored pencils readily available because she knows that it is what Maria loves to do most, but also what helps her stay focused and balanced with her emotions. When Maria is in this creative flow of energy, it is when she can best ‘listen’ to her own voice, feel centered, grounded (present), with herself and with others around her.
It was no surprise to see that Maria’s mother carries the strongest Earth vibration as a Spiritual Talent which would help Maria with grounding. She mentioned that she always felt she could help her daughter in ways that the medical profession could not fully (yet); and, therefore, had decided to learn as much as she could through alternative and holistic methods. Among many things, my friend had recently trained as a Reiki practitioner to help her daughter balance her emotions and ground her high vibrational energy.
The outer eye (#5) is about Spirit & Freedom. This energy is pioneering, visionary and has the ability to express spiritual connection. In Soul Plan, this energy appears as a challenge for Maria. However, in a relationship with her mother, Maria’s challenge helps her mother trust her inner voice; the voice that tells her what is best for Maria. Maria is helping her mother to see her without any doubt. She is helping her mother connect with her inner wisdom and guidance; and to trust her intuition which can be challenging at times for my friend; also expressed in her soul plan.
When we follow this path of inner trust we build endurance which is reflected in the numerical value of the inner eye as 21(3); and with endurance, intelligence, and great inner strength, we are able to communicate clearly that which resides deep within our heart. Our heart is our greatest channel of creative expression. This is from where our inherent wisdom wishes to communicate freely and openly without judgement.
This energy of endurance and expression is my friend’s Worldly Talent. Where Maria may sometimes struggle to communicate clearly what she feels (as most highly empathic children do), or where others may misunderstand Maria’s moods and behavior, her mother can help Maria communicate, or communicate confidently on her behalf. My friend is, therefore, also teaching others how to ‘understand’ what Maria is feeling and why. Maria is helping her mother learn to trust her feelings; and believe in herself that she is on the right path with all she is doing to help her.
My friend and I were emotional when we saw the correlation and direct significance to their soul plans; and their mother/daughter relationship in this lifetime. It was clear that Maria is communicating to us and teaching us from a dimensional space that sees beyond our two physical eyes; and taps into soul wisdom that is helping us to re-member to keep coming back to our feeling center, to our heart center, to the space where the connection through our heart only knows truth.
