She was made in the middle of the Lion’s Gate astrological alignment played out. Now I know nothing about astrology but I did notice some different energies occurring about how I was viewing certain things in my life – and a great unfolding of what is next. And as I pondered these energies my hands created Lion colored dreadlocks and this Guardian was born!
