Unlocking the Mysteries: ‘Beyond the Veil’

Mar 14, 2024 | Art & Symbolism, Blog, Meditation, Mindfulness with the Mystics

“Beyond the Veil.” This simple piece, speaks to me of the things in my dreams …

It speaks to me of what lies in the boundless realm beyond our senses, beyond the veil of our conscious awareness, the depths of the subconscious, the vast expanse of the universe beyond our ordinary perceptions. Could it be a world at Peace?

The butterfly, the journey of the soul breaking free, soaring towards enlightenment or higher consciousness. It carries with it the prayers and aspirations of this artist imbued in each dot of paint.

The moon the feminine, intuition, and the subconscious mind.  A guiding light.

The deep purples filling the background spaces, echoes of the unknown, the depths of the subconscious, the vast expanse of the universe beyond our physical senses. It immediately conjures images of mystery, transcendence, and perhaps even a glimpse into the unseen realms. Purple has long been associated with spirituality, mystery, and the realm of the mystical.

In many cultures, the butterfly is a symbol of transformation, rebirth, and the soul’s journey. It emerges from the darkness of the background, spreading its wings, breaking free from constraints, and soaring toward expanded awareness or higher consciousness.

In the distance, the moon often symbolizes the feminine, intuition, and subconscious mind. In this context, it could represent a guiding light, leading the butterfly – and by extension, the viewer – towards deeper understanding and spiritual growth.

“Beyond the Veil” invites us to contemplate our journey of beyond the limits of our physical reality, toward a realm of higher consciousness, transformation, and ultimately enlightenment. It’s a reminder that there is more to existence than what meets the eye, mysteries waiting to be explored beyond the veil of our everyday perceptions.

As a further contemplation, consider the words of the contemporary spiritual teacher Mooji, “Beyond even the concept of beyond, there is a vastness that words cannot touch, and yet it is your own Self.”

Mooji’s words invite us to explore the boundless nature of our true selves, transcending even the idea of limitations or boundaries.

A moments reflection or prompt for your journal:
How can you cultivate a deeper connection with the vastness that lies beyond the limitations of words and concepts?
