MINOUCHE

HERE IS A LETTER I RECENTLY SENT OUT TO MY COMMUNITY AND THIS WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THE JOURNEY

Hello dear friends,
It is with a heart full with gratitude for all of you who have supported me on my journey with the 13 GranMotherscouncil painting.

For the help to get me there,responding to Matthew s fundraising, for hosting me when I was in Ithaca NY,for driving me around, for the words of encouragement ,for your interest in coming to see the painting, for holding space when I was overwelmed by this incredible shamanic journey, for feeding me too, for allowing me to go through a personal healing process,for the healing sessions received or the pictures and video taken, for the connections made for envisioning me there ,for your Love in so many ways....

I painted from my heart and guidance
Over the past 4 years ,3 times the Grand Mothers council energy came in my life,the first article,the book and my friend ,Margin translating for them, meanwhile , I was receiving inspiration to paint the peace leaders and wondering who ?
The third time I decided to pay more attention ,went on line ,opened their website Grandmotherscouncil.com ,and looking at them ;holding hands on a picture ,my heart was so deeply moved ,I started to cry and knew they are the peace leaders I was to paint ....

Painting them was a wonderful journey for me and at time I feel their different qualities ,and yet they all embody all these qualities ,I feel what they feel,
I feel the Compassion the Joy and the suffering,,The Courage, and the Strengh of Mother Earth ,the playfulness,the depth of what Love is ,the roots of Earth Itself, the wounds and the healing, the cries the Freedom to stand up for our Heart s flame,,the profound respect for Life ,saw the Divine flow in their eyes ,The Presence in the expression of their soul as pure as Light...PEACE ,UNITY AND HARMONY ,their work ,their dedication

I feel my Heart expanding and embracing the world
I feel overwhelmed and come to cry without understanding why,...The Love is so beautiful....and sometimes I laugh echoing to their own Joy
Sometimes I wake up singing in a language I do not know and it feels like One with all the world, like Life Itself
I feel blessed to do this painting and words cannot translate accurately what it is for me

This painting is in honor and gratitude to who they are and to their work

...AND came the time when in their presence in Groton Ithaca ,( Eight of them )
I stand before them for the first time ,at a women gathering ,about 350 of them....
Jyoti ,the spiritual guide who had the vision to gather the 13 Grandmothers, helping me to unroll the painting ( a 9 feet by 5 feet canvas ).....

I feel this incredible wave of Joy coming to me from the Grand Mothers as well from the crowd
Grand mother Flordemayo jumped out of her chair to hug me in joy for so long .
My body shaking in tears.then grand mother Rita B .crying and laughing as the same time ,taking my tears to put on hers ,grand mother Tsering ,Agnes .Margaret,Mona,Beatrice and Rita Longvisitor each and all deeply moved and happy
And when we turned around to show the painting to the women ,same energy of love ....

From that moment on I have been honored privileged to be with the grandmothers all the time ,in ceremonies , sharing meals and room, being present at their many and various talks and teachings ,receiving their knowledge and wisdom.I have been blessed by each and all at the last ceremony,the closure of the fire ,and you were each and all present with me there

We have already started to sell prints from the painting to support to their work ,and here I feel happy too

A leap of Faith
I do not know what next could be as fulfilling for my soul as this and if I do not have another experience like this ,I take this one in and feel already very fortunate ,I have learned ,expanded my heart, healed and grown

supported by Universe through all of you ,when my mind could not figured how I would make it , I stayed true to my guidance,regardless any form of judgment starting with my own monkey mind ....
In being free to express myself in alignment to my Heart s guidance , I experienced at times what being Home feels like

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

with gratitude
ONE HEART,ONE LOVE
Minouche

Gorgeous

I seem to feel the breath, love and life of the grandmothers through your painting. It tells many stories at once and is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the painting and logo. It is good to meet you here. Welcome to Pulsewire!

Warmly,

Lisa

You are Guided

Dear Minouche -
What a joy to find you here on PulseWire! I remember meeting you so well that day a few years ago -- the light you shone and your healing hands.
The Grandmothers have been a beacon for me too - for all these years, and were given in a vision so long ago. It is exciting to rejoin our paths and move in sync supporting such leaders of our time.

Would you be open to having your prints profiled on our marketplace?

Congratulations on your gift to the world!
Love,

Jensine Larsen
