Eagle eye vision... “The Eagle eye is among the strongest in the animal kingdom, with an eyesight estimated at 4 to 8 times stronger than that of the average human. An Eagle is said to be able to spot a rabbit 3.2 km (~2 miles) away.” (From Eagle eye – Wikipedia).
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life. (From Butterly Symbolism)
When artists write, sing, dance, paint, perform – something called the MUSE flows into them from the Universal Mystery of life and takes over. Suddenly their vision is acute, pin pointed, one-focused, all-encompassing. I like to call this timeless journey into possession – EAGLE EYE VISION. From heights within themselves beyond normal human comprehension, they fly… possessed by the Muse. Her creative force DEMANDS expression and the ARTIST becomes the chosen one to convey the messages.
HELLACIOUS HEALING BLUES brings the stories of not only artists in flight, but normal everyday people whose lives suddenly took a dive into some dark hole of no return only to rise up like the Phoenix to live again… bringing the honest depth of the struggles, the loss of the hope, the fight for survival, the peace of surrender, the appreciation of the lessons and the acceptance and love of our deepest humanity. What we did, what helped, what didn’t help and what helps us continue to live our lives to the fullest each and every moment.
It all sounds like some big airy fairy miracle but in reality this is raw and real stuff and at times it gets nitty gritty and heart-wrenchingly tough. Yah.. we crawl around for years – all caterpillar like – and then one day we retreat into a self-created cocoon and there we stay until it’s time for our authentic life to begin and thus begins the battle to emerge into our true purpose.. our true beauty. The real trouble – I mean the serious trouble begins when we get stuck in our cocoons or we emerge too soon; but even then, many of us find a way to keep going in our wounded, damaged states and we find that our Eagle eye vision becomes sharp edged, poignant, vast, and wide into the land of NON-JUDGMENT about ANYTHING. If we continue on this path, we find we are TRULY and FINALLY on our own full blown Journey into the Depths Soul Alchemy.
I’ve been challenged again and again to live my truth and take on the lessons through pain. Throughout my life, this pain of the heart, mind, body and soul had to be all-encompassing affecting every part of me because I’m stubborn.. BUT SOMETHING out there cares about me ALOT because this pain of awakening kept coming and coming to finally bring me to this point of a delicious surrender. Most Artists of any worth walk this path. I welcome you to read, contemplate, and share your comments because I do believe we are all on this world stage together with that massive thing called LOVE as our Playwright with freedom waiting in the wings – the wings of our arising.
Big Damn Love… Cee Cee James
