Within the Visionary Art movement there are many different styles or techniques utilized. I use a divination technique calling “scrying” in which my inspiration arises from staring into crystals, rocks, fire, or tea.
I begin a painting with meditation, or with shamanic journeying, and then I infuse all my art supplies with Reiki and Magnified Healing energy. When working on a commission I add positive thoughts about the person, plus any words or images that come through my intuition, to the base layer of the painting. I then allow this charged layer to marinate.
In due time I add additional layers until an image comes forward. Usually I see the eye, or an outline of an animal, person, or spiritual being. Typically, if an animal steps forward it is the person’s power animal as determined through a previous shamanic journey, but it could also be another animal guide wishing to be of service.
