Original Art – Seeing Gods in the Clouds

The other day my husband and I were sitting on our outside swing watching the clouds, when I saw a fully formed image appear in the fluffy whiteness. I quickly ran inside to grab my sketch book and created a drawing of exactly what I saw in the sky. To me, it looked like some kind of ancient God, alien, or weird fantasy creature:

I didn’t embellish the image at all, other than adding color. What would you think if you saw this looking back at you in the sky?

This drawing is currently for sale on my Ebay store, along with many other original artworks. Check them out!

  1. Clouds are always fascinating. Everywhere I go, I’m grabbing for my camera and taking pictures of clouds. We recently saw a real “castle in the sky”. It was awesome. I’ll have to find the pictures and post them on my blog one day!

  2. Remember your lucid dream you shared on here. The gods are trying to get your attention. “Gods? Wtf?” I hear you scoff and giggle, but I see the fear flit across your eyes. The insanity of it all. It is absurd. How do people react to the absurd? It depends on how seriously they took it to be in the first place. There is the path of ignorance, met with defiance and anger. There is the other path of awareness, met with laughter and levity.
    You pick the words you choose and I reflect them back to you.
    I bow as I play the fool.

    1. You may very well be right about something trying to get my attention. The other day I was again out there sitting on my swing, thinking about the pagan Gods/Goddesses I admire the most, (especially Hades) when a big black butterfly almost flew right into me out of nowhere. I couldn’t help but think about how black is Hades’ color and I had never seen a solid black butterfly like that around here before.

      1. Hades is a massive symbol for me. He is one of the archetypes I use to describe myself and my relationship. I think of us as persephone and hades, and part of persephone’s transformation is to realise the dark power within herself. And I’m like “look baby, I’m hades too!” But he doesn’t get it. So I research some more and then I realise that persephone is the queen of the underworld and before her descent she was known as “Kore”. Hades changed her.. core… and awoke her true potential within.

      2. I named my daughter Lillith! As a tribute so to speak. I have 2 kids, and my girl is the eldest. I chose their names based on traditional meaning as well as what they meant to us, and the spelling based on numerology. I was (and am) so careful to make sure there is balance with them and that they balanced each other. It’s actually pretty funny how my careful control over every thing in my life is a direct response to the inner chaos I feel within… my girl is “gem of the night” and my boy is “protector of the light”. My kids complete me in a way that I recognize I would never have been able to feel on my own. But I always knew I was broken and backwards compared to everyone else, and they are these beautiful creatures who are more beautiful and wonderful and everything than I could ever hope to be.. and I’m scared I’m going to fuck them up like I have everything else in my life, and just they are sensitive and different to the rest of the world just like we are… and I dont want me kids to have to suffer like I did/do. But my girl, shes so much like me I dont have to say anything and she knows… and she doesn’t understand… because shes a kid… and shes only 10. And going through her own physiological changes and challenges. I’m afraid of influencing her in a negative way. At least when I look at their astrology charts I can reassure myself that I wont fuck them up..? I want to be the mum that is in their charts. I really do. And it’s funny… I can see that I already do those things that I see in their charts anyway. What makes me cry though is that I feel like it’s all a lie. I want to be the kind of person that I wish I had in my life… and so I positively influence them and they grow and surpass me. And as they do.. i remember just how far behind everyone i already am…
        I love the gods and goddesses of the underworld. Of the night. Of the darkness. Because they’re there to show us the truth and to guide us through those dark times.
        I dunno. It’s really all backwards. In reverse. Every night and every day. The symbolism of duality/polarity, and that everything is symbolic… I see it that way anyway… I want to be the force that helps people in the way that I wish I had in my life… and their success is my success. But I life lived through other people is not really a life, and so I remember my own failings and shortcomings and mortality and limitations… any time I try to heal myself, I am reminded of my selfishness. So I have to ignore myself… or ignore them… and I am in eternal conflict with my inner world and outer world. And it’s a perpetual cycle I hate. So I try to change what I dont like.. it’s the narrative of the hero’s journey, both the female and Male quest. Simultaneously, concurrently occurring in my head in every reality, in every time line. And I hit that crisis point… and remember I’m doing this for them. Just like jesus (omg i sound like I’m fucking delusional, I’m sorry) who sacrificed himself for the betterment of mankind, he cried out to god why had he forsaken him… and he was reminded that it was for the greater good….
        I identify with the darkness and their gods and goddesses, and I objectively understand and appreciate their necessity in life and what they represent. And so I always end up here again. I’m scared and alone, and I have to remember why I’m scared and alone.. and why it’s necessary… and it makes me sad. I’m so sad. I want to change so I dont have to feel this way, and im the only one who can make it happen… and it’s like I’m the only one who remembers… who knows what the fuck is going on… I cant lead myself through the darkness because I am leading others through their darkness. I cant lead both myself and others… so … yeah….

      3. I think many of them I am drawn to the darkness and occult-like wisdom (Hades, Hecate, Anubis, Lilith, etc.) Artemis I was initially drawn to because of her childlikeness and desire to stay independent and pure. Thoth I love partly because I am a writer and he is the god of the writers. Persephone I like because she is married to Hades and she is both the queen of the underworld and also a nature-loving entity. I like the duality of her two existences.
