Judging is completed for our 3rd Annual Nature Spirit Photography Contest. What began as a fun event is now becoming a picture dictionary of various kinds of life forms who co-exist on earth with us humans. It is inspiring.
We’re heading into a series of nature spirit photography workshops I’ll be offering the public the next few months, and I encourage anyone interested in learning the fine points of this topic to attend. Next year we will be focusing our workshops in another direction.
Last year I wrote a blog about art and photography showing nature forms. Here is this favorite post of mine:
As our Crystal Life collection of nature spirit photographs deepens, a pattern is beginning to emerge. Nature works in an orderly hierarchy of forms, and levels of complexity. Our growing collection of photos from our Blue Papaya, myself, photo contest participants, and the many visitors to our site, is proving to show life forms very similar to those found in the visionary art work of Gilbert Williams, who much of the time focuses on nature spirits in his paintings. His paintings, like the photographs coming to us, show different levels of complexity that form a hierarchy of consciousness development: small round orbs and lights, flying objects, faeries with wings, and then the larger more complex “leaders” of the realm who manifest as full forms.
Mr. Williams states of his art: “To me (visionary art) refers to the metaphysical art that arises from the collective unconscious.” It appears the new digital cameras, in the hands of sensitives, are beginning to pick up many of these life forms as well and that the “collective unconscious” is becoming the “collective conscious” ability to see these significant nature life forms.
The Gilbert Williams images shown here reflect what our contributors and workshop attendees are able to photograph. There are the large stone formations that contain inside themselves images of their living energies. There are orbs that contain inside themselves faces, geometrics and other life forms. There are different levels of nature spirit development being photographed in the same space.
Visit the Gilbert Williams site to see more of his contributions to helping people see into the rich world of spirit . This is not to say that all the plasma and orbs being sent to us fall into this category, but, definitely, some of the images can be explained in this way.
