Homo Luminous: New Painting

Yesterday, I completed a new painting and here it is.  The central figure was sketched about two years ago when I first had the idea but it was left on my pad and I forgot all about it until I went to start a new painting in July and found the sketch.  So, as I like to finish things before starting something new, I decided to prioritise this painting.

It’s the first time I’ve painted in the style of a religious icon, it was a learning experience and I really admire this highly decorative style.  A religious icon is an image made for meditation and contemplation.  This painting depicts the next potential evolution of Homo Sapiens, as Homo Luminous, a being with a physical body but existing with a greater connection to our light body, our ascended self living on an ascended Earth.

The serpent represents the primordial serpent and the healing of our sensual and sexual energies.  The kundalini energy represented by the serpent is moving between the root and crown chakras with ease.

The coloured discs behind the spine of the figure are depicting the twelve rays of light that originate from the source of the Creator, here integrated with the energy of the human body.  The figure is full of white light, seen bursting out at the third eye and heart.  This is the light of the soul, united with the physical, emotional and mental bodies.  I have depicted the person as androgynous, standing for female or male for a future time when gender is not as much of an issue.

The three figures in the painting give a nod in the direction of the Holy Trinity, but more specifically, the baby is the Divine Child, that aspect of the human that is the core of divinity.  The figure on the left is the Elemental, an energetic being that supports and connects the human to the Earth reality, tending to our energetic health and wellbeing throughout our earthly existence.  The Elemental Being and the Divine Child are already with each of us but, in Homo Luminous, they are acknowledged and embraced.

Finally, the four pointed star on the right represents the STAR messages and our natural receptivity to all the wisdom of the heavens.  For Homo Luminous, any information we require can be received with ease as we open to the flow from the other planes.

There’s a fair bit of metallic paint used in this picture which doesn’t come over that well in a photograph and it’s not been varnished yet, which will bring out the colours much better.

I hope you enjoy the painting, it’s called ‘Homo Luminous’.





Healing The Heart of the Earth is my blog and the Home of Four Branches Healing which is the shamanic and energy healing service of myself, Amanda Reid. My blog focuses on my spiritual thoughts, feelings and experiences throughout a daily life blessed with the freedom to be and do many of my favourite things. Coupled with the lessons, messages and challenges that certain physical conditions bring to me from time to time, namely migraine aura and osteoarthritis. Sometimes, I face outwards and focus on bringing healing to others, sometimes, I need to face inwards and focus on my own healing and growth. My passions include walking in the woodlands and working with the trees, strolling along beaches and swimming in the seas. I approach most things from the perspective of a worker with energy, looking for the energetic dynamic and using it to bring healing, hope, love, faith and manifestation into my life and those of others who cross my path, in as much as I am able. My path is wholly within the vibrations of the divine, particularly the feminine principle of the divine, whose current expression is enabling a balance of male and female energy for humanity. One day, we will be ready to embrace the non-gender reality of the cosmic levels completely, but for now, the divine feminine is bringing her loving and compassionate energy to balance out and bring healing to the millenia of masculine divine energy that has been expressing itself on Earth. If there was only one thing I could say to you, it is this, you are divine. It matters not who you are, you are divine. You have no reason to accept what I say, but I still wish for you to know it, not with your thoughts and mind but in such a way that you feel and experience the truth of it, embrace and embody it. You are divine. You and every other being you know. By divine, I mean you are made up of the same stuff as what we call God, what I call the Creator. At our core, all of us are that pure, that perfect, that magnificent and that wise. We are, however, a little more complicated than that, consisting of a number of elements that go together to make who we are in this, our present personality, in this, our current incarnation on Earth. Take that divine core and add a rather confused and easily bruised personality/ego with a severe memory problem, starting out (again) as a little baby, growing up in a hurt and challenging world, amongst a population of people all going through the same thing, all trying to work it out. The divine core, at soul level, is more like a passenger, its voice not heard for all the noise of our physical existence; the desires, the emotions, the struggles, the suffering, the pain, the fears. All of it, illusion, just a very convincing one. I’m one of many who are waking up. Are you one who is waking up? Confusing, isn’t it? But worth it. There truly is no other way, this is simply the best game in town and we are ascending. Wake up with me and embrace your divine nature. You are more than welcome, you are my reason for being here.
