Archetypes - The Art and Soul of Elle Nicolaï
A heart beat. It is one
pattern that we all feel. There are many other patterns. Through the heart of each
of us love flows both primal and eternal. Touching the sacred space of eternal
love leads to wondrous worlds that can be explored, viewed and understood and
as this is done you will facilitate your own healing, at a deeper subconscious
Inside of that space deep,
within the universal heart, the love of existence flows. It is a vibration that
is timeless and shapeless yet with clear form. It is waiting to be explored,
to be understood and to be coaxed forth from the source.
That spiritual source is the
essential beginning of eidetic imagery that glows with a fire hotter than our
own Sun. Why? Because it is the fire of spirit, the fire of the pure and the
source of our connection to our own healing.
From this deep wellspring of
cosmic awareness come natural archetypes. They flow past our mind’s eye and
pause. Waiting to be discovered, found and eventually to be painted. Their fulfillment
is found in the healing of our spirit, our essence, and our souls.
They are gifts wrapped in
beauty waiting patiently to be opened. But first they must be discovered and
this is what the shaman’s self, the poet’s heart and the pure soul must do.
The clearer they are, the deeper the healing is. The clarity and purity of the
vision shines from within; from the diamond shaped seeds of our souls.
Elle Nicolaï has followed
this shaman’s path through an opening in time and space to unveil the most
clear and pure images of the elemental origins of our human souls. She paints
them with the clarity that allows your soul to recognize the visions of
awareness that they explore.
The images are pure and simple.
Remember that the clearest vision entices the greatest healing. Her images are
stark, colorful symbols of mythological understanding that only a pure soul
could encounter. Elle reaches to the far ends of the dream state to harvest
these images from within the passing flow of our universal heart.
She returns to paint what
she finds there and because of that these images are spectacular. They invoke
the healing heart that connects all of us to that spiritual existence of our
universe. All of us: every human being living on this earth is aching to know
and find the awareness of the essential healing source which flows from the
universal heart. We aspire to reach this perfect healing and awareness – which
can be found in the symbolic messages emanating from the pure dream state, from
the imagery and essence of the painted world found in Elle’s artistic works.
To some they may seem simple
and quiet. But these images glow with the fire of that universal spirit that
is brighter than the Sun. They also embody the cooler color often seen in the
liquid emotional light of our Moon as it lights our nighttime sky. Subtle and
timeless – yet able to influence tides and raise the watery consciousness of you
and I. As you view and ponder your own life and thought, the essential being
of love, creativity, and desire is freed in these deep and prophetic visions of
your own healing.
Look on these paintings and
find the source within you. The flow of time may slow and the world outside
(the physical realm) may fade back into its own place as you work with the
images. You may feel called to one particular piece or work directly with Elle
as she discovers which piece would provide you with the greatest awareness or healing.
Then find a space in your home where you can view the healing imagery – and
feel your own heart beating in synchronicity with the universal heartbeat.
I am blessed to be in her
company and I feel a connection beyond our own earthly worlds. Follow your
soul and you too may find deep healing and the essence of spiritual awakening
displayed in the subtle and pure imagery of Elle Nicolaï’s paintings. Your
world may never be the same again.
