She is one that loves deeply and with that she can also feel the emotions of those she cares about completely. To recharge she needs to run free in the forest barefoot, so she can ground herself to the Earth that she adores. She is one with nature and sees the beauty even in the creatures that scare most. She is the wild one. Often misunderstand, but those that know her, adore her.
The spirit of this dolls pretty much just happened. She was wanting to be brought to life. And all of her has so much meaning. Beginning with her sacred herb bundle inside her belly (pic below). When I began to look for the perfect herbs I received a clear message they should all come straight from this land where she has been created. Acorns had just fallen from the storm, so I collected one for her from the big Oak tree out back. I also found a small twig from the maple tree, then I took the herbs I had just dried a few weeks back to complete her bundle. They were comfrey leaves and flowers, mint, and rose petals. Everything within her bundle freshly grew this season. Acorns bring the energy of growth. Maple brings love, and longevity. The comfrey flowers and leaves bring in protective energy, and also the power to overcome obstacles. Mint connects her to the cycles of life, death and rebirth. And the rose petals bring in the essence of passion and love.
Her beautiful peaceful, petite face just took form right before my eyes. The crescent moon on her head is a symbol of her being the master of time and a reminder that her spirit is timeless. The painting on her face symbolizes how she is connected to her primitive instincts. Her hair is beautiful, yet unruly, much like she is. And her crown is a symbol of femininity.
She has no set style. She doesn’t follow the social norms. She is her own unique wild self and enjoys being just that. I dressed her in light purple to bring out the essence of her light-hearted, passionate and fun nature. And when you look closely at this wool you will see the many beautiful multi-colored threads through it. The mushrooms on her dress shows the connection she has with all of nature and mushrooms themselves bring good health and good luck. And last is her gray cape, this is a symbol that even a wild woman can be sophisticated. It brings the balance in her beautiful personality.
Last is the heart that she holds upon her own heart. Within the heart is a beautiful mix of flower petals, a reminder of just how pure and beautiful her heart truly is. The stone on her heart is a Pink Girasol, this stone activates the Heart Chakra, it expands the aura and brings a deeper connection and communication with the Divine. It brings the energy of love into your life as well as peace and tranquility. And the rays around the stone are a reminder to always allow the heart to shine through. Even when your feeling like an outcast or judged by others as the wild woman often is.
She is ready to be the reminder to someone special, to let that wild woman within you break free. And that when the heart is pure, your beauty shines from within.
