This is an older piece that I created back in 2017. The first frame that you see is actually the original piece. I made several more and made a very short clip. This piece references something that I have rarely spoken about. Approximately five or six months before I began my spiritual awakening process, I was working on writing my dissertation about choosing and deciding the language of trauma. The subject matter had weighed heavily on me ( among other things at the time) and I felt like I was being cut off from something. It felt like death.
I will admit I was not really a believer of God or the highest self or anything prior to this. In the moment I actually took a leap of faith and asked God/the universe for mercy over and over again. Probably minutes later I felt this light and it almost felt like someone breathed into me and I felt my heart light up. This piece references that moment.
