"Transformation" Aligned Energy Art
Transformation is like Fire.
As the date February 22, 2022 approached, the numbers alone, 2-22-22 predicted a powerful energy day. I started to wonder what the energy would be like at 2:22 pm. I decided to set aside that time to create something and see what would evolve. I had no plan or idea.
Here is what I was inspired to create. Originally, I named it 22222222.
I like to make three pieces that can work together in a group, say behind a sofa. So, I created 2 more pieces. This I called 22222222_2.
And the third one, I called 22222222_2_2. Haha, that is a lot of twos!
The Meaning of Two
Obviously, the number 2 is important in the energy of this day. I researched the meaning of 2 in numerology.
The number two enhances intuition on a very deep and subconscious level. This number can pick up on energies that cannot be seen, only felt. It is an influential number, the peacemaker, that enhances partnerships, balance, and teamwork. It is a number that represents grace, diplomacy, and balancing of people, concepts, and things, to create harmony.
The Meaning Behind the Art
I was not thinking of the meaning of the number two when I created these pieces. I didn’t look up the meaning until later. I just wanted to see what my intuition led me to create.
As I worked with the first design, it reminded me of fire burning through the forest floor, and leaving charred designs and shapes of what had been behind. Sometimes the flame was strong, other times more subdued.
Years ago I was a wildland fire fighter, so have seen plenty of forest fires. Fire sometimes moves slowly and consumes the litter, or dead leaves and things on the surface, bursting into flames here and there. When the conditions are right, such as low humidity, high temperature and wind it kicks up and burns the trees, even torching them in dramatic displays. Other times it burns below the surface, so you don’t even see it for months and then it pops up and starts an unexpected fire.
Transformation is like Fire
Although I originally named these pieces after the number 2, one day someone who saw my art commented “it looks like transformation in action”.
The more time passed, the more I realized these pieces actually symbolized transformation to me, so I renamed them “Transformation”. Why?
Transformation to our higher self is like a fire.
Sometimes you see dramatic results and changes in yourself and others notice as well, like the fire torching trees in a wildfire. Other times, you think nothing is happening, but it is. Slowly, deeply within, until one day it becomes obvious. This is like the fire burning un-detected underground for months and surprises people when it pops up under the right conditions and starts a new fire.
And like the fire, as you transform you release what was there, and create fertile ground for new things to emerge. The more you release, the more new growth can happen. After a fire, although things may look dead, it is not long before new shoots come up, happy to have the room, the nutrients, the light they lacked when they were surrounded by the older trees. The old trees are like our stories and attachments that hold us back from becoming who we are meant to be.
Transformation and the Energy of Two
I am glad I set aside the time to create during this powerful energy. I think the power of two did enhance my intuition that day, allowing me to pick up on energies that could not be seen, only felt but expressed through my art.
The number Two represents grace, balance, and harmony, and I sense that in these pieces, just as fire provides balance and harmony in an ecosystem.
How can you use Aligned Energy Art in your space?
If the message of “Transformation”, resonates with you, then adding art like this that is meaningful as well as beautiful is a great way to create your perfect space and remind yourself of what is important in your life each day when you see it.
Add art like this to your living room, meditation, or workout area or wherever your intuition guides you to put it.
Because this art is digital, it can also be put on a variety of home decor products such as pillows, bedding, serving trays, coffee mugs, notebooks, and more. Think about your own transformation as you sip your morning coffee or write in your journal, or while doing yoga.
Aligned Energy Art is another layer of meaning beyond the visual beauty in creating your perfect space that is aligned with who you want to be.
I created this Edesign, or virtual design as an example of how you could create a space using this art and express the energy of “Transformation” in your space.
Your selection of art determines the energy you want to surround yourself with.

What is Fractal Art?
Fractal art is digital art I create on my computer. I love creating fractal art because it allows me to work with brilliant colors, interesting textures, and incredible detail. Learn more about how it is created in my last Saturday Night Live Art Show, ” A Passion for Purple” where I show some video of the process. See examples at my store on Society 6.
