Beorn Heorte (Bear Heart) – Carrying the light & gifts of our Ancestors into the darkness of winter… Beorn Heorte is a painting that I started a long time ago and only completed a few years ago, it was one of those pieces that needed time to deepen and grow and that was waiting for me to be ready too. It is only since the immense deepening of my path after my initiatory experience a few years ago that I have felt ready to complete this painting, this altar to Bear and our Ancestors.

Now as we enter the darkest half of the year once again, it feels like a good time to share this piece that is very close to my heart. This painting came from some very deep and intense ancestral work, from seeking out my kindred and the lineages of spirits that have looked over, blessed and protected them for many generations.

It is a reminder to each and everyone of us, that we all have such ‘Kin-fylgja’ deep within our familial & ancestral bloodlines, looking out for us, our families and their welfare. Now, more than ever with the big paradigm shifts and changes going on in the world could we benefit from connecting or re-connecting with them.

Wishing you all deep & blessed illumination as we enter the dark, may you receive abundant blessings from your ancestors and dance with them well.
