Sitting by a crackling fire, we accompanied each other while we shared some of our experiences of the previous year and aspirations we had for the new year. During the year that we were reviewing, my friend shared a significant and challenging transition she had experienced. Her and her husband’s life paths were diverging resulting in a separation in their relationship. During that year she had put a lot of attention on self inquiry and recovering her wholeness and freedom from a traumatic childhood. She used images to describe to me what it was like for her to be liberated from life limiting beliefs that had been frozen in her nervous system.
Respired Flight is my attempt to paint what she shared with me that evening.
Respire: recover hope, courage, or strength after a time of difficulty.
