Divine Nature

Photo by Gina M. Gafford

I took this photo on August 10th, 2016, in New Zealand. I used my Nikon camera, and I did not download the photos until I got home. After I saw this picture, I could not take my eyes off it. Each day I look at this picture, I see more and more symbolism. When I first saw the photo, I recognized a bearded man or an angel wearing a robe. When I looked closer at the head, I could also see a veiled woman. Today I noticed the figure holding an Egyptian ankh.

According to Wikipedia, the ankh is known as the breath of life or “life,” and is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character. The character represents the concept of life, which is the general meaning of the symbol. The Egyptian Gods carry it by its loop, and it appears in the hand of almost every deity in Egyptian pantheon (including Pharaohs).

This photo that I took of an angel blows me away. When I look at this picture, I see magic and mysticism. I know for a fact that we are not alone. This photo is proof that angels are with us all the time. We are divine creatures. We are taught early on in life that we are sinners, not divine beings.

Beloved sisters and brothers, we are divine.

When I was in New Zealand, my dad died. He died on Sunday, August 7th, 2016. I was wondering if I would receive a sign from him. He knows that I love photography. In my mind and heart, this photo is from him. He wanted me to see heaven, and to know that life continues after death. For one photo, he pulled the veil between this dimension and the dimension that he entered.

I am changed forever.

Namaste, world.
