just a bit of my story~~~
in 1998 i was in a head on accident & suffered a concussion that kept me in a heavy swirly fog for 2 years.... i lost many abilities that were a large part of who i saw myself to be, & how i had functioned in the world & my life... one of the things i lost was my skill & ability of doing hand lettering, i was trained as a graphic artist... old school, where everything was done by hand, i had a knack/gift at hand lettering/calligraphy.... i had always loved penmanship & it just came quite naturally to me....on different occasions during the concussion, when i tried to do my art/craft i was unable!.....this was beyond frustrating for me on so many levels....things that had always calmed & comforted me, like the calligraphy were gone! when the fog of the concussion lifted & i tried again to do my art/craft, i was still unable.... the natural flow, the distinct style that was my own, the ability was no so free flowing, i was devastated....i felt lost & the confusion of the concussion lingered....so i became busy doing other things, that i had learned while the concussion affected me......in 2010 i challenged myself to overcome this block, that had at that point become more of a fear.... i challenged myself to see what i could do.... so since i do no sleep so much during the nights prior to the new & full moons, that became testing time, my a productive time..... i promised myself, i would no push or judge myself, i would no be critical.... i would just allow the pen & ink to flow.....whatever came out just was..... a couple months into this process, i realized i was tuning into the incoming energies of the new & full moon... & so i continued to allow these to just be expressed on the paper by the pen & ink~~~ these expressions... became known as my portal drawings... recently i decided to create an oracle deck utilizing these drawings..... the 1st draft recently arrived..... i am quite please with the coloration & quality of the printing, i am however in the midst of some editing so the portal art work is expressed in the fullest manner.....over the past 4 years, i have been posting some of the portal drawings .... the past week, i have been posting some, posing the question::please share what you feel/experience when you view this portal drawing....
i do sincerely appreciate your comments i find them very helpful & interesting..... keep in mind.... a portal is an opening between one place & another.... an oracle is wisdom shared..... when utilizing an oracle deck; there is no 'right/wrong' way to use it, look at the pictures.... what comes forth for you to see or know....i was asked if this deck would be available for sale..... yes absoulutely i will be offering it to the public...once the editing is complete the deck is good to go~~~
thank you again hugs, earthdeva/molly

Oh Molly, I can only imagine how awful that must have been. I'm so happy you found a new way to express yourself. I love the idea of the oracle cards.
