Description Journey to LemuriaIn ancient times there was the legendary land of Lemuria, an ancient civilization which existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis. It is also sometimes referred to as the land of Mu. Although concrete physical evidence of this ancient continent may be difficult to find, many people 'know' that they have a strong connection to Lemuria. For thousands of years, the mysteries of Lemuria have been kept a secret.It is believed by some that the information from ancient times is stored within the cells of the human bodies, and would never be forgotten. These people were considered the sacred keepers of the records of Earth. Within the highest ranks of the shamans, this knowledge is still passed on. For thousands of years, the teachings would have to be kept hidden. But the ancients knew that one day that cycle would end and the teachings would once again emerge.The ancient Lemurians believed in a higher power, love and respect for each other and for the Earth. That is the very basic foundation of spirituality. That was the spirituality of the ancients.We should not fear the unknown. The deeper you go within, the more profoundly you are going to experience a new reality, new ideas. It is important to stay open and receptive.Sometimes, in a dream state, there is a vision. From there a simple sketch is created. It often takes many months for the entire vision to take shape before a painting emerges.This piece was created as a mixed media: watercolor, pastel, pencils and acrylic paints.It is my hope this piece of art will inspire you to explore those places you have not yet discovered within yourself and in your world.LemuriaLemuriaAtlantis Mu Lemuria Lemuria
