The Making of : The Flamingo – Card #1

The Making of : The Flamingo – Card #1

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Each one is unique and has a different story to tell. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. I’ll kick this journey off with the first card I created and go from there. 

The Flamingo

Mother Earth Magick

Take time to do things that inspire you, see the wonders of the world all around you. Explore nature and fill your life with beauty  – it will re-energize you. When you fill your cup with nature, you let go of the chaos around you, you raise your vibration and surround yourself with the high vibes of nature. In this space you can be honest with yourself and what you desire. When you’re rooted into nature, you can hear your intuition more clearly, you can acknowledge your desires and release any judgments you or those around you might have in any other situation. When you’re clear on your desires, take inspired action. 

The Inspiration for this Card

This came to me in a dream, as many of my cards do. There were thousands of flamingos flying across the sky and I was there to capture the moment on camera. I was standing on a wooden boardwalk, overlooking a river and marshy lands, with low trees and shrub as the backdrop. It was magic. Absolutely breathtaking. Being one with the magic of Mother Earth and all of her creations. It stuck with me so much that I can still picture myself in this dream. I can picture the lighting, the sun was setting and there was an orange-green tint to the atmosphere, the colors of flamingos flying overhead added in pink, but their bodies blotted out much of the light. It’s dreams like this that find themselves on cards because even after waking up, I still remember the details, even after over a year since I had it, I still remember.  

The Meaning of the Flamingo

The flamingos themselves can mean a few different things. You need to follow your inner truth, get clear on what it is you desire and what your true North looks like. Embrace the in-between of where you are right now and that inner truth of what you desire. The flamingo is here to remind you to stay true to yourself and get creative, take the photos, draw the pictures, bake the treats, write the prayers, etc. When you let this creativity out, Flamingo will reveal the magic.
