‘Lady Bougainvillea’ – Day 323/365

‘Lady Bougainvillea’ – Day 323/365

My heart was feeling strong today and my body more and more like the me I was missing (hooray for restorative back yoga with Claire from SpineShine) and so I painted all the happy body feels. Yes, this is apparently what my happy healing body feels like – bougainvillaeas laced through a cactus😆⁠

It does little good to separate our bodies from our intuition and spirits. But we do that, don’t we? Our minds like to put everything into boxes, when really our physical and emotional selves should grow entwined like a wild and thorny but lush bougainvillaea hedge through the fleshy limbs of a high reaching cactus. ⁠
.⁠
Funnily enough the bougainvillaea flowers are seen in some cultures as symbols of peace and encouragers of free trade between two entities. How cool but who knew? 🤷🏻⁠
.⁠
I wish for you too a body and spirit embraced by bougainvillaea tendrils and able to move as one peaceful entity. 🌺⁠
