Cantos of Reclamation

The Making of a Painting

 

Cantos of Reclamation

She is the quickening

Standing at the threshold of now

She doesn’t perform alchemy

She is the embodied alchemical process

She doesn’t need to create legacy by design

She IS the legacy, as it reveals itself

She certainly isn’t waiting to be discovered

The Lady has already discovered herself!

She is not persuaded by readings of the almost future

That hold prophecies of prescribed delivery or doom

She carries the codes of the tree of life in her blood

She prays to be ready to receive the fullness of the teachings

She need not constantly seek to heal what is wounded

She carries holy wholeness in her unbroken soul

With supple shimmer, she slips out of stories worn old

Gliding from hidden worlds into the joy of pure presence

She is woven of the ‘matter’ of mysterious darkness

A daughter of Wisdom, whose radiance never ceases

She is at the intersection where light enters the prism

Surrendering unnecessary struggle, heralding an age of beauty

Her true lover is not her opposite, nor her reflection,

What they are, who they are, is still being in-formed

She is one of the many messengers of the ancient future

First re-membering, and then creating with intention

She is a shelter for the sacred, a call to action for the lost

The revealing of an archetype from the celestial eclipse

Her creativity, marks out the atlas of possibility

Dissolving duality, tending to reclamation and refuge

Where paths meet she takes her stand, a vesica piscis view

weaving technology and biology as stardust methodology

She knows from whence the gifts come, from the Creator,

She chooses the narrow path of the one called The Way

The lineage she carries is carried by all people

Yet often lays hidden under suppression of consciousness

She calls a council to gather, Mystics, Poets, Painters, Cantors,

Scientists, Dancers, Wisdom Keepers and Christos Seekers

As an initiation they reclaim language, image, code, seed and sound

A new mythos is revealed, already carried in the codex of the soul

Together they explore the intersections that have divided us

Offering up a view of generosity, prosperity and justice

She shrugs off continual apology for self and projections from others

With acceptance and forgiveness for self and others, she emerges

She steps out of systems of any kind that do not support life

Simultaneously stepping into structures of divine design

She is the scribe and curator of her own becoming

Guided by her call to the ministry of refuge and reclamation

She accepts with gravity, her responsibility to the great unfolding

Nurturing herself, she discovers the nurturing for those she serves

Her unreasonable prayer is a song for the wellness of all

An offering of love, comfort and an invitation to the quickening

She hopes that this reading may be a Blessing for you,

as it has been for Her, in the writing and the revelation.

The writing of one’s own Cantos of Reclamation

can be a ritual towards the awakening.

Join me at the council of the sacred?

We will be there, waiting and ready to dance!

Cantos of Reclamation by Shiloh Sophia, 2017

Inspired to share this image and writing, go here

This painting is what I have been working on during this Eclipse cycle, completed just now. And the writing, got me up out of bed after a rough night of not very much sleep. When I did finally sleep, dreamed I was writing a letter to the Intentional Creativity Guild – as we had a big gathering at Terra Sophia and we were arriving at night by caravan.

This painting, Cantos of Reclamation, will be a book cover. It was created to honor the feminine evolution – creating an image of the ancient and the future of our work. The image was sparked in response to the inquiry – what is the new feminine evolutionary? Inspired by the book by that title, featuring many women writers by Flower of Life Press. There is still a bit to do to get the painting and writing just right, but she wanted to be revealed today. So here she is.

Another time I will tell you about more of the symbolism of light and dark – of honeycomb and binary computer code – and my reasons. The two colored eyes are to represent women of many colors. Light and Dark and in between and the integration. Embracing the paradox. Suffice to say I prayed during the entire painting for our planet and for women everywhere to wake up and stand up and speak up. Thank you for witnessing it.

And yes, people are already asking, prints will be available in the Fall with the release of the book, more on that soon….

yours in red thread,
