This started as a portrait of a friend but ended up looking nothing like her (and I made another drawing of that friend).
It has a life of its own now and looks like some sort of a spirit guide to me. If you feel she resonates the painting is available for purchase.

Current reads (and re-reads). These are golden! Couldn't recommend them enough.
I'm thinking I might do a full book tour sometime!
What books are on your nightstand, or some you recommend? I'm particularly into shamanism, energy healing, and astrology right now, so I'd love suggestions on those types of books especially. Oh! And books on herb and essential oils would be good!
A shamanic journey takes you from one state of consciousness to another, using a drum (or in this case, a rattle) to navigate.
In doing so, we move away from our physical body, bones and solid matter, towards a lighter, more flexible, energetic body, where emotions and thoughts reside.
Drumming also vibrates the visual cortex of the brain, stimulating theta waves and inducing significant trance states and inner landscapes – trippy!
Our imagination is a place of innate wisdom, so often ignored by the outward-facing distractions of modern life. Allow the beat of the drum to guide you down the rabbit hole of your very own, inner world; explore open portals and alternate realities where soul parts, elementals, spirit guides, animals and ancestors all vie for attention. Our childlike sense of adventure reminds us that we are both the dreamer and the dream itself. “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” - Albert Einstein
