I’ve named this piece ‘THE LADDER OF LOVE’

Before commencing the actual piece my instincts guided me to paint a ladder on the side edges of the canvas...unknowingly...unwittingly. As I sat back once it was finished I was revealed the sacred symbols that spoke to my conscious mind. This entire piece is actually a representation of ‘The Ladder of Divine Ascent’. The round figures represent souls moving up towards the light on top left. Their outer layer is white as it represents being showered by Divine love, the gold is our untapped spiritual potential and the black dot represents the small ego self within. The white figures on sides are angelic beings and guardians

The left small black figures are dark angels that try and shoot down those moving up the ladder. They work through the ego fears + attachments/compulsions.The top right beings represent those Ascended into heavenly gold realms of of Divine dimensions that show us we too can achieve this. 

 

It’s story: 

Enter eagerly into the treasure house (the heart) that lies within you, and so you will see the treasure house of heaven. For the two are the same, and there is but on single entry to them both. The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within you, and is found in your soul. Dive into yourself, and in your soul you will discover the rungs by which you are to ascend.” - St. Isaac the Syrian.

 

So, dive into your soul and start climbing it one step at a time, ascending as you defeat the ego and shadows that try and pull you away from love and keep you entrapped in lower states of consciousness. Our unconscious minds are incredible streams of intuition and channels for divine guidance if we simply get out of our own way. This piece is very special to me. Eryka
