About Gail Packard
I remember as a child, I had visions of places not of earth, I saw sprites, and had knowing …without knowing from where I knew.
Many life times flowed through my mind’s eye, and my 3rd eye opened as I grew up. I learned to keep these things to myself very early on, because I got the ‘strangest looks’ from the people I asked questions of, or from things I would say.
I knew I was different, and was unable to communicate what I saw and experienced. My art gave me the medium to “paint a picture” of what I saw …and like my Father used to say, “Draw me a picture”…well, that took some time! And gave some rest for my poor parents… I always had so many questions. Then when I had my picture done, it still wasn’t quite right, it was missing an essence, and something very ancient and symbolic was missing.
I had no idea it would take me until now, the 21st Century to start to get ‘close’ to what I have experienced in my journeys through time, out of body, traveling in my Etheric body of Light… through the portals of time. An ‘E’ ticket ride at Disneyland for sure!
I am grateful for being alive, and here at this time on planet earth, hoping to make a difference in the world with my presence, my art, and my ‘mystical soul journeys’ for my website.
After receiving my Masters in Reiki, my oil paintings took on a new hue and tone. I began painting monochromatically on the triangular shape in 1996, after my son made me my first triangular canvas.
Although I had been painting since 1977, my paintings were average. I did the normal landscapes, earth colors, trees, and mountains, lakes with nice reflections; the usual still life… the material world.
I loved getting lost in the process, letting the creative juices flow and allowed my hand to dance to the music. My paintings evolved and had a relaxing and soothing effect on the observers. They ‘pulled you into them’ in a magical way, I discovered they had hidden spirit guides in the trees, the clouds; I was amazed as I painted to my favorite group, Enigma.
The scenes flowed from my brushes onto the canvas with an ease that was free and filled with passion from my core being. I was painting my memories, my journeys out of body to other dimensions, ancient healing temples, places that were new to me, I painted into the wee hours of night when all was still and quite, painting… was, and is my passion.
I am the first artist in the world to design the triangular canvas… onto, which, I create …in oils, my ‘visual meditative art’, a totally new artform… The triangles!!!
The triangle has presented Divine power, truth, and the connection between Heaven and Earth since antiquity…and as a Reiki Master Teacher (the ancient art of natural healing) I blend tone, color, hue and vibration together with a new ‘kind of resonance’ for anyone seeking a peaceful body, mind, and spirit.
I added reiki symbols to my artwork, and then tried some special purple or blue lighting, always trying to capture what I saw in my mind, and get it on canvas, this was no easy job. It took me until 2007 using the new technology and a computer with a cool program, called Pinnacle Studio 11, my computer technology consultant told me about, he said this program is what I needed to achieve what I was trying to do. He was right, and my paintings evolved into the Mystical Soul Journeys… which brought them to life, and I then added the special effects I had been trying to create with a brush and oils, and added the mystical music from Anahata, a perfect combination of spiritually enhanced and inspired artists enjoying the freedom to create from our heart. (Anahata: means the heart chakra of the chakras) we were in sync, but on opposite sides of the planet. What evolved from this combination became the “Journeys”…
When I sit in front of my blank canvas, I have no idea of what will end up on the canvas, I follow spirit without hesitation…I allow my hand to dance on the canvas to the music I listen to while painting.
I choose my colors by the vibration I fell at that moment in time, astrologically speaking… I love the feeling I have when I’m in this state of consciousness, I am at one with the places I paint, and I am there in the painting viewing it and sending it back in a vision.
This may sound a bit odd to you, but being a ‘co conscious being’ and able to move my consciousness to where I choose is the key essence of what I do when I paint my visual meditative art on the triangles which give them the feeling of the divine and the entity being at one.
I hope you will enjoy experiencing them as much as I enjoyed painting them and turning them into a Visual Meditative Experience for healing body, mind and spirit.
Mystical Soul Journeys
I intended for the journeys into my paintings to take the viewer on a visual meditative journey to some of the past earth memories from ancient days, and begin to remember the ancient ways we lived, in harmony with each other, and Mother Earth, Gaia…a conscious intelligent entity and the Logo of Earth.
I have done my best to put on canvas the feel, and the way that things are not always solid, some places are very liquidy, some transparent, and some only seen clearly from a distance, like the Nasca lines…images left on the planet, only truly seen from space because of their huge size…and meant only for one looking at our planet from that perspective. Like a message in a bottle for those who can see. And like I always say…”For those who can see, no explanation is necessary. For those who cannot, no explanation is possible.”
I would have to say that my art is ‘Reiki enhanced Art’ for healing trauma and PTSD, which was my intention from the beginning of my spiritual gifts to assist in healing the scares of war, emotional injury, broken hearts, and any reason you might have to take a mental vacation for 7 minutes, to let my Mystical Soul Journeys…take you away!!
There are 13 different journeys to choose from here on the website, and they are free for healing, relaxing, and calming.
Spiritually Inspired Poetry
I guess you could say that Easter Morning 1992 was the life changing day that gave birth to all of my spiritually inspired creations.
It was on this day at the Mystical Dragon, in Carlsbad, CA that I received my Reiki Masters Degree in “The Ancient Art of Natural Healing” from my mentor, Diane Stein.
I began writing poems, first in my head,… then my spirit guides nudged me to ‘write it down’…so began the poems. They just flowed onto the paper as I wrote from my heart the secrets I knew from my past lives in the ancient healing temples. We all have choices and our thoughts and actions do make a difference, and I feel people have a right to know… we create our reality! With our thoughts, intentions and actions… sprinkled with a dash of will power and faith …and the right to Light.
