I’m a big fan of Breda’s work and how she blends colour and movement to create really special pieces of art. After having conversations with two separate people about the soul art that Breda had created for them, I felt like it was the right time to have mine done, so I contacted Breda and we got started.
Breda only asked me for one thing at the outset, and that was to set an intention for her to meditate on. For me, it was Abundance - my one word for 2020. After that, I cleared my mind of any thoughts of how my soul art would/should look and left it in Breda’s safe hands.
It was one of the only times in my life that I completely let go and trusted in the process.
A couple of weeks later, Breda unveiled my soul art. It’s difficult to express how I felt in that moment. Without any instruction or guidance from me, Breda created a piece of art that captured the very essence of who I am. Unbeknownst to Breda, I’d made a very deliberate decision to go into “fermentation” in my business because I’d been working really hard and I felt like I needed to pause before deciding on the next stage of growth. So I was blown away to see that one of the key themes in my soul art was rest. Breda depicted me resting in an upturned boat and acknowledged how hard I had rowed to get to the stage I’m at. She told me that it was time to stop rowing, let go and trust. I couldn’t believe how accurately she captured it without any guidance from me. It gave me the confidence that I was doing the right thing by fermenting in a world that is constantly striving for more.
Along with my soul art, Breda gave me the most beautiful letter which described the images and messages that came to her during her meditation. The level of detail in the letter is phenomenal and it reflects the many, many layers in the painting. It’s wonderful to have something I can read over and over again in those quiet moments.
Going through this process with Breda has only confirmed to me what I already knew - she is a special soul with a rare gift. I’m delighted to say that her beautiful painting has pride of place in my home and my heart.
