I was offered the brilliant revelation that
I was to paint Soul Portraits for others when I myself was in the Akashic Records, with my healer/teacher, Chrys Franks. When asked if I was ready to do this work and I answered 'yes', they said my first assignment was to paint my own self 'soul portrait' while in the records of my own soul. The process of creating this was absolutely amazing and familiar at the same time. By deliberately opening the Akashic records before painting, I felt a crystal clear focus while bringing forth this beautiful image that now is a powerful focal point for me in my spiritual practices. I realized when I was in my own Records it felt subtlety different from when I normally create art, because I am naturally in the flow of my own soul when I paint. However when painting the Souls of others, the unique energy of each Soul is profoundly different. It has been helpful for me to have my own Soul Portrait present for these sessions, to keep me connected to my own energy field so not to be swept away by the incredible frequency of another being's soul. I feel that my own portrait is working on me in a similar way that the flower essences work.. It is subtle and yet profoundly transformational. My life is evolving beautifully as I am being revealed to my Soul's purpose and I am stepping into this calling in a way that I never had before.
I am truly honored to be the first to receive a Soul Portrait by, from and through Beki! And what an amazing experience it has been and still is! I continue to gaze into the portrait everyday and receive more of what my soul reveals to me. It has definitely helped me to create a beautiful and more direct relationship with my Inner Being. What an incredible gift to have to such a beautiful visual and energetic portal into my own True Nature given through the undeniable talent of Beki by the Masters, guides and loved ones of my Akashic Records, all of the sacredly stored information and energy of my soul's journey thus far! Beki is such a beautiful, gentle and humble expression of Spirit and this Energy seems to flow through her so purely with ease and grace. My sessions with her have been powerful and have opened my eyes and my heart to realms I may have never known on my own and have allowed insight into a deeper and profound alignment with my Soul. It has revealed a Light that I am learning to embrace as my gift to share with all of humanity, with all of creation, and with all beings seen and unseen. I am truly and deeply grateful.
The experience of having my soul portrait done by Beki was profoundly magical.
In our first session, we opened my Akashic Records followed by the Bach Flowers Consultation. It was a relaxing, delightful conversation, and I started to feel my soul in a much more tangible way.
The combination of the information that we received from the Records and the use of the flowers, opened up a new and enchanted way for me to connect with my soul… but it wasn’t until I actually viewed my stunning full-color soul portrait I realized how powerfully this experience would effect me.
Beki’s work is a reminder of our inner and authentic beauty! She is an amazing individual that can translate energy into a masterpiece!
Every day, I look at my portrait and it amazes me how easily I can travel within and have a dialogue with my inner being! I am so appreciative of Beki’s assistance on revealing my Divine Self!"
Beki is wise, loving, pure, luminous, full of integrity and strength. Her gifts as an artist, healer, and Akashic Records consultant are truly exceptional. In her soul portraiture she combines these gifts so that people may learn about themselves and connect with the loving wisdom at depth of their being. It is an incalculable gift to have these messages revealed through Beki's inspired art. Each portrait is unique as is the person's soul journey. I never grow tired of looking at the soul portrait she created for me to find the meanings beyond what words can convey. Its colors and images resonate deeply with me, inspiring and helping me to heal in ways that are a continuing revelation. Heartfelt thanks, Beki, for blessing me profoundly and for the sacred work you do for the world!
Beki has been a soul sister of mine nearing 20 years when I first walked into her boutique in Charleston, SC and fell in love with her sharp fashion sense, artistic genius and her goddess wisdom. My wardrobe became mostly Utopian clothes over time but one thing always seemed to be missing. I did not own one piece of artwork that adorned the walls of this mystical shop and I yearned for that each time I stepped through the threshold.
It wasn’t until Beki began her journey into painting soul portraits that I knew instantly I was finally destined to have a piece of her talent. And this would be different because I knew this would not only be healing but it would be deeply insightful, undeniable and raw. It was my soul after all that would be revealing herself for my own growth through the vibrant strokes on the canvas. My hair stylist commented before the project was even started that certainly it would resemble Lady Gaga on LSD.
Following the instructions for the unveiling exactly as written, the initial viewing was beyond overwhelming or adequately describable. Tears streamed as I met her deep aqua eyes. They were so intense I could not even hold her gaze for prolonged periods of time due to the craze that welled inside me. This was me and I was fierce, powerful, loving, wise and unworldly. All things I had failed to trust about myself even when others believed so strongly.
Sitting with her for hours, slowly my gawk became longer, softer and awe filled. Her face changed as I sat in front of her. Her wildness softened and - I saw a sister, mother, grandmother, father, brother, lover, child. She was me but was also everyone. Her high, passionate cheek bones transformed into sage wrinkles. She was defiant; a protector, a healer, a sinner, a savage. She was life severely amplified. She was Lady Gaga on LSD.
Automatic writing is something I have been doing for a while. Something takes over, I know I need to type and I really don’t have to think much. My fingers do the work and I just sit back and enjoy the ride. But I don’t normally sit down with that intention. Grabbing a precious notebook with the tree of life embedded into the leather, I prepared myself not really expecting much.
My fingers could not write as quickly as the questions and answers were being downloaded. She was talking to me and I desperately wanted to capture her insights. There were many. The one that sticks with me months after this transpired was a question I posed to her.
“Why do we forget who we are? Why do we forget our soul?”
“So you can experience the joy of remembering,” was her loud, simple answer.
That moment I remembered. Always knowing that this life is but an education for my own spiritual growth, I finally felt the intensity of my wild, spirit side. That part that was feminine, masculine and divine. That part that chose this life and this body to just remember her soul and her divine purpose regardless if that actually happened or not.
Months have passed. I have moved to Hawaii. I am following my soul. She sleeps with me at night. I see her eyes when I awaken and I do not look away anymore.
Do I sometimes forget her? Have fears? Watch my ego and mind loose control? Surely that happens. Often more than I would like or expect. But I now always find my way back to her. She will never be lost or forgotten again.
Beki, the wise healer and artist gave me that as did my own precious soul.
I created this Soul Portrait as a way to heal a past life that was revealed to me while I was in my Akashic Records. I asked my Soul to come forth in a way that would allow me to integrate and heal the being that I was in this incarnation. It was a particularly critical aspect of my experience that was revealed in this life that offered me deep insight into the source of my fears of speaking publicly, the dynamics of certain relationships in my life and my natural affinity to the work I am now doing as a vibrational healer.
In this lifetime, I was a powerful healer during the time of the Inquisition when healers (witches) were being persecuted and executed. Without going into the details, when I became aware of the events of this lifetime, it was deeply disturbing and yet answered many questions for me about situations in my present life. Not only did I desire to heal the pain still stored in my body from this time, I wanted to integrate the gifts of this aspect of my being so that I could tune in more deeply into the powerful gift of healing that this Healer offered, through the very instrument of her own voice; the voice that had become shut down as a result of her tragic ending.
The process of painting and then working with this Soul image has been very instrumental in me reclaiming my voice and releasing some very old and calcified fears. As you can see there is so much symbolism in the image particularly around the throat area. A sacred symbol was revealed to me through this painting that I now use when I activate the energy of Reiki. She continues to guide me as I expand into the work as Healer now.
"I knew that having my soul portrait done was going to support the movement of my soul to fully embrace the rest of my amazing human journey in this lifetime and bring me out of hiding, connecting deeply with Source, illuminating the way. I am both the student and the teacher at the same time.
Opening my heart and soul to this gift and the vibrational healing of a soul portrait has been the most authentic and profound journey of self-love. The most unexpected and deeply healing journey of falling in love with my portrait and developing a relationship with her has allowed me to get out from underneath some of the negative self-talk and insecurities (which are often hidden in old patterns of thought and interaction and deeply lodged in our cells). My portrait is revealing this to me while at the same time inviting me to fall in love with me. In so doing, paving the way to know true unconditional love and expanding my capacity to share this with others..
Blessings shower me in this process. So beautiful, so rich. I could not have known that this gentle, loving, interpersonal process so deeply connected to the divinity that vibrates within each of us, would offer me this healing.... I hold myself in love and in tenderness through this process....inviting myself to embrace what is coming...with ease and a knowing that everything is in divine order, everything is in divine timing and when we allow.....when we surrender, we find ourselves embracing divine grace that is our natural state and our birthright. "
Beki put into color and form what cannot be easily put into words. My soul is beyond words.
When I saw my soul as Beki conceived it with paint on canvas, I knew it was the essence of me that I feel. It was not a thinking that it was my essence, it was a knowing when I saw it. I cried. It was as though I was able to reconnect with the me that has always been and always will be. She is my presence, my heart, my spirit. She has always guided me with her companion, Jesus. I am blessed to have her close to me when I meditate. She is near me when I sleep, watching over me. My Soul portrait reminds me to go inside and know I am loved.
The Soul is so illusive, or it was before Beki painted it. Now I feel grounded in my soul, because of how I feel when I look at it. On my way to Beki's studio to see it for the first time, I couldn't stop crying all the way there. Then when I saw it, I cried deeply. It was a reunion with the very essence of me, my true identity. It is beautiful, so beautiful and yet so beyond physical beauty. It glows the way I feel the inner glow when I am one with the divine.
My Soul portrait reminds me to go inside and trust that I am never alone and every thing I need is within. It is my soul that is in direct communication with God. What a wonderful gift I gave myself when I allowed Beki to paint my Soul!
