The first thing I saw in the stone, when I started working with it, were these two lovers. The natural lines in the stone were connecting them so clearly, that all I needed to do was draw them out. The stone itself had a very soft feel in my hands as I was turning it around, while following the already existing lines and patterns within it with my ink pen. This stone made me feel connected to the softness of white puffy clouds, that fly by my balcony often and without fail- bring a smile to my face. When I reached the other side of the stone, the same way I saw the lovers, now I saw a house! My whole body was overcome with gentle love and I was over joyed that the story of the stone revealed itself to me so effortlessly.
You can not see this in the pictures here, but out of Her feet, comes out the garden on the back of the stone-representing the power of creation and Deep Felt Feminine aspect of nurturing of all that is good and beautiful in the world. Whilst, out of His shoulder, come out the stairs that lead to the house-representing the Divine Masculine-that provides the solid structure and the right environment within which all that is a loving creation, can flourish.
Their togetherness, tells the story of mutual trust and ongoing inspiration.
The New Moon-representing, that through this mutual trust and an ongoing mutual inspiration, their journey is always renewed as if saying;
No matter how long we have been together-we're only just beginning!
The House, represents our highest aspirations for this life time-made manifest.
As a symbol from ancient times, stars symbolise enthusiasm, hope, striving spirit and far reaching goals. To me they also represent a connection, to our inherit cosmic origin and undenying presence of other worldlly manifestations.
The smoke that comes out of the chimney represent, the warmth of home and a well lived in as well as loved daily life. It also signifies, the importance of letting go of the negative accumulations on daily basis. The smoke taking with it what has already come to pass and what no longer serves us.
And finally the circular shapes are blessings for the future bearer/s of this Stone.
