Fine Art Print – The Secret

K275-G: The Secret

This image is an expression of North and West energies found within the Feminist Shamanic Medicine Wheel Mandala®. It is also a visual shamanic story about something I actually witnessed in the winter forest surrounding my home. I was looking west into the forest through a window within my home, while doing that most mundane of tasks, washing dishes at the kitchen sink, when I suddenly heard loud, frantic pecking on several spots on the exterior wall. I couldn’t see what was making the sound and was about to go outside to investigate when five woodpeckers, which often warn me of hidden secrets when in shamanic journeys, flew from the house into the trees to the west. They were immediately joined by seven blue jays, who often serve as the forest’s alarm system, warning of approaching predators. All the birds fluttered and flew about in the branches of the trees, the jays making a very loud racket. I watched in wonder until suddenly, and apparently from out of nowhere, a magnificent bobcat appeared in the forest, climbed the snowbank on the side of the driveway, and stood there staring directly at me for several minutes. As I stared back during this encounter, a connection seemed to be created between us. It was then that Bobcat gave me a teaching about what was happening in that forest that day, which went like this: “When Bobcat walks from West to East through Winter, she hides her secrets among the trees of the frozen forest. Woodpecker drums notice of Bobcat’s coming, and Blue Jay flies above her, sacrificing feathers to mark what is hidden. Thus are Bobcat’s secrets revealed for those who can hear and see.”
