I have been so busy the last two or three months with my business, with finishing the school year as a teacher, dancing and moving into our new house (yay!), that I haven’t posted about our new kitten Tiger Lily. We rescued her from a feral cat we take care of who just had the one kitten. The mama cat was still a kitten herself and couldn’t take care of her, or produce enough milk, so some neighbors taught us how to bottle feed her and take care of a newborn kitten. She is a firecracker with so much sass and energy. Bear cat wasn’t too happy about it, but every once in a while I catch them playing together. This was Princess Tiger Lily when she was 2-3 weeks old. #rescued#rescuedismyfavouritebreed#tigerlily#kittens#kittensofinstagram @reedert3 is #hooked

This Shapiri, this Nature Spirit that materialised from my heart and hands reminds me of an eternal moment, a cataclysmic experience with a Star Baba and a Cosmic Monkey. This image reminds me of a Han Pan song that my angel daughters dada conjured for her and I. He named the sound frequency "Tiger Lily". I almost typed Tiger Lilu (which is also completely apt, but that is another story) 🐯 As much as this Nature Spirit looks more similar to a Strylitsia, the essence of this drawing feels a kin to the princess Tiger Lily from Peter Pan. A colourful, wild, ephemeral, mysterious guerrera. She embodies the magick of the unknown. She challenges the norm. She believes in the impossible. She Trusts the process of surrendering. She Listens to Pachamama. She follows her heArt and the signs she strongly receives from The Universe. She is quiet, almost elusive, but Full Power within every action and every word. She cares deeply about her people, her creatures and her home soil, and she will fight to maintain the existence of it all. She is still a child at heArt. She loves to play, but don't be fooled for she is a curandera, a Medicine Wombxn. She lives in the Standing Ones, she transforms when in Oceana Mãe, she sings with Wind Wombxn and she falls back down to Earth with the Rain Spirits, renewed and energised.
To me this is the soul and very being of Tiger Lily. She is an ally, she is a reminder to remain connected to Source, to all that is and always shall be. She is also a song conjured by a Cosmic Monkey 🌀
