Intuiting under The Full Snow Moon

I'm participating in Jamie Ridler's once a month Full Moon Dreamboards. This is one of my all-time favourite activities, it takes me away from myself into the world of my dreams. I find myself diving into a deeply therapeutic experience.

The motivational message this month from Jamie is ~

"Sometimes we bury our dreams and desires deep within, as though hiding them under layers and layers of snow. Protecting them. Protecting ourselves. Waiting until the time is right for them to grow. Now is the time to tune into your heart, to let your intuition and your dreamboard express and reveal the dreams that are hidden inside you. Let the creative process take you below the surface, beneath the layers of safety and protection, guiding you to the innermost dreams sparkling in your soul".

I decided on a photo collage this time, having fractured my ankle and not daring to venture out in the snow to find fresh paper collage materials, I quickly went through my entire library of pics and chose intuitively, feeling my way forward rather than aesthetically selecting ~






So what dreams and desires came to the surface?

Roads and travel seem to draw me, not particularly holiday destinations but more a getting away. The red window calls to me as an escape route. Same with the bottom digital image I created, I was thinking about Rapunzel's escape from the tower by means of her long locks. My desire for peace and quiet shows in the solitary snow tree, but I also yearn for music and activity in my life.

My deepest desire though is to be loved, as a father loves his baby, but I remind myself I have to love myself first!

If you haven't assembled a Dreamboard before I would eagerly urge you to do one now, especially if you are feeling the winter blues!

my darling one,

may the light of each moment find you.
when the light enters you,
may you hear music.
when you hear music may you feel your wings.
feeling your wings may you know the unmistakable devotion of a fathers love
and from this place of being completely loved may peace enter your radiant perfect dancing heart.

I totally agree with you - I've only been dreamboarding for 3 months, but I'm falling so in love with the process, the insight and the joy of it. Wonderful board. x
Selflove. Amen to that!
May all your dreams come true.

Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
