Fine art Giclèe print, inspired by the ancient Celtic symbol of the Holy Spirit: the wild Goose. 

Nearby where I live in Hatley lots of geese gather and on prayer walks I usually see them and hear them flying in. 

This painting has 9 of them, symbolising the Holy Spirit and His gifts and fruit that he gives. The painting carries an invitation to breathe in this fruit of the spirit and breathe out the opposite. I was also inspired at the time by the powerful breathe prayer that has recently been written by Sheridan Voysey. You can read more of the explanation about it here: https://sheridanvoysey.com/coronavirus-is-going-to-demand-much-of-us-this-might-help/

You pray the first line slowly breathing in and the second line slowly breathing out:

Lord God, fill me with your Holy Spirit.

I receive your love,

and release my insecurity

I receive your joy,

and release my unhappiness

I receive your peace,

and release my anxiety

I receive your patience,

and release my impulsiveness

I receive your kindness,

and release my indifference

I receive your goodness,

and release my ungodliness

I receive your faithfulness,

and release my disloyalty

I receive your gentleness,

and release my severity

I receive your self-control,

and release my self-indulgence
