This artwork is designed to empower women. Any women who is wise, make equanimous decisions and can fully be her authentic self with confidence is a powerful woman, a goddess, a queen! Following your heart is the fastest way to evoke the power of the Cobra Women and harness the universal energy of source.
The Cobra acts by feeling with her entire body. The Cobra will be very comfortable around those who are in a meditative state and will not attack because it senses the individual's vibration. Cobra women, like the Cobra, empathically feel with her entire body and will resonate closely with those around her. She is telepathic for this reason. She will sense your every desire, as well as your greatest fears. Her power is in her deep inner knowing, which makes her centred and secure within herself. She is self-aware, manifest in her thoughts & actions and grounded. She stays focused on her vision for herself, balancing equally between service to others and service to self.
The Cobra in the image represents a kundalini awakening. Kundalini energy rests like a coiled serpent at the base of the spine. When this dormant energy flows freely upward through the seven chakras (also described as energy centres of the body) it leads to an expanded state of consciousness, it's known as a kundalini awakening. In modern psychology, this phenomenon is understood as awakening the unconscious in man. It is no wonder then that in ancient times, especially in Egypt, the Cobra has been used to symbolize hidden wisdom, royalty and protection. In Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra wore a crown that took the form of a coiled serpent, a personification of the Cobra Goddess Wadjet, where women were honoured and respected for their inner strength, wisdom and leadership skills.
The Cobra Women is a monoprint; she is one of a kind. She was created with ink, using a small plate of glass and 100% cotton watercolour paper. The earth tones and my signature blue was chosen for its symbolic meaning representing Earth Mother. She is strong and powerful because of her wisdom.
Her body is a hollow cave because this is her temple.
Her body is her conduit with which she connects to All that Is, the infinite intelligence of the Universe.
Her pure heart floats in the ether because she is tuned in and connected to people, plants and animals. Her very presence brings everything surrounding her back to balance.
Any women who make their own decisions and can fully be herself with confidence is a powerful woman, a goddess, a queen. Follow your heart and be unapologetically yourself to harness the power of the Cobra Women!
