I’m not into body art. I think the body is beautiful just as it is. Apprenticing with a Cherokee medicine woman for many years one learns a thing or two about life and consequences of actions and thoughts. For every action there is a re-action stands out in the case of tattoos.
Speaking to people about this gains insight into the teachings brought to my door as an apprentice. Feedback is valuable and in the case of tattoos you may want to make a few notes. While you may be attracted to this form of art, realize there are consequences.
We were taught as apprentices that every cell of the body is an intelligence. I’ve witnessed this intelligence first-hand but that’s another article. Every cell communicates and has intelligence. So what happens when you apply permanent ink to your skin, which has the intelligence of millions of cells?
Before you get inked, consider carefully what you want to have reflected out from your body into the Universe. For what you ink on your skin reflects and draws to you that which you put on it. Don’t get a tattoo if you’re drunk. Drinking alcohol and doing drugs opens you up to the lower world entities as it is and that’s dangerous enough adding a tattoo without giving it some forethought.
Only put on your body what you wish to attract. Stay away from confusion or confusing art forms. Things like monsters and skulls may draw monsters and death. Death is multi-faceted. There are many ways to die.
One person with higher intelligence had a phoenix tattoo and said her life changed so much for the better after she had it done. Fairies (the good kind) and butterflies are creatures of protection and change. Celtic or other ethnic symbols of protection, abundance and love are advantageous. Anything that reflects happiness, abundance, goodwill, joy and positive experiences are things to consider.
Of course, there are always people who challenge life and want adventure. Good luck with that! Tattoos are yourself reflecting back at you and drawing to you that which you put out into the world through the intelligence of your skin – the way you are seen by the world. And the way the world sees you. It is more than you think. Tread this medium lightly. Think about the symbol(s) you put on your skin.
If you could see yourself through the eyes of the spirit you would see a gloriously shining aura around you. Every cell lighting up into beams of light that radiate out many feet around us. We are light-beings and it is an awesome sight! That light represents the cells communicating. The worlds that the cells communicate with. The intelligence of ourselves. We haven’t begun to fathom who we are because we don’t allow ourselves to see the totality of us in all our glory and awareness.
Be aware of your cells and their intelligence and avoid wearing something permanent on your skin unless you want it to bring you joy. Just sayin’.
