"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life" - Elsie de Wolfe
It's taken me some time to fully understand this vision. Now, as I begin to draw these Deities and ground them to Earth, I see how they wish to work with me. I can see now that they follow me because they wish to touch others through this artistic tool. There are those on this earth they wish to help. Their wish is to connect with us, to help our human experience and offer their gifts.
Using henna is such a beautiful way honor their spirit and bring them into our lives. Henna is a beautiful plant medicine. Not only has it been used for eons, dating back to a time long before Cleopatra, henna actually protects your skin like a glove, or a shield and since it is only temporary it allow us the fluidity of change.
By using skin as the canvas for art we are actually allowing our bodies to tune into the energy of the art. In this same way, when I create a design with a Deity, I am in a way, imprinting the energy and blessings of these Deities onto the body I'm working with. In doing so you are accepting their presence and bringing their help into your life.
Here is Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance, prosperity, wealth and Beauty. Seated on a Lotus flower, she holds two lotus flowers. One in each hand, this flower represents beauty, fertility and purity.
Lakshmi is the embodiment of affluence, abundance and auspiciousness. She is the active energy force that brings abundance, prosperity, beauty and good luck to both the physical and spiritual realms. As the goddess of fortune, she bestows power, pleasure and prosperity on those who deserve her grace. To realize her, one must respect the laws of life and appreciate the wonders of existence.
Need a little Lakshmi in your life? Evoke this deity into your life with a henna tattoo session. Book an appointment and I'll tell you more about this lovely goddess while you lay back and let the art and magic unfold.
Cheers to you friends,
hope to be tattooing you next
