I was inspired to create this painting after listening to Bob Proctor’s abundance meditation. He talks of a ‘beautiful cleansing lavender energy’ and it invoked this power image. I shared this meditation with my friend Dumle Kogbara, a writer and poet, who was also inspired by it. We collaborated to produce a painting and poem in gratitude to Bob Proctor for sharing his work with others.
Here is Dumle Kogbara’s poem:
And through that night of lack
Grace on the wings lavender
whispered caressing remembrance
Birthing images from a dim, forgotten land
A landscape opens in the clearing
A forgotten but ever-present land.
This was once my birth home
Sublime lavender fills and beckons;
creating imagined paths
Abundance of variegated forms
And that lavender gently dissolves
For there is more
Incarnation- a birthright redeemed.
