___ 165. Palmina as Saint Cecilia ___
picture 1a – Saint Cecilia with Angel
And this eternal tender soft kiss made Palma very lucky.
Suddenly the weak lantern light radiated more light then in the last hours and was very strong and shined on Palmina’s beautiful face.
Palma saw now how beautiful Palmina looked and was deeply touched and inspired.
»Palmina?…« he whispered fast.
»Can you sit down at your music table where the little table organ is?«
Palmina smiled and could feel how inspired Palma was in these minutes and sat down at her music table.
Palma put the strong shining lantern on the window to shine on the place at the music table. He could see that Palmina looked so good sitting at her little table organ and smiled looking into Palmina’s innocent eyes.
Palmina understood: Palma wants to paint her as »Saint Cecilia«.
For a moment he felt on his knees and looked up to her. He folded his hands and said silent a short prayer.
Then he kissed her talented hands.
Palmina understood wordless and smiled and she put her beautiful and talented hands carefully on the little organ and started to play a Saint Hymn of the Saint Cecilia.
Palma smiled and in his heart the sun was rising like in the morning.
He took his painting easel and painting brush, mixed fast a few colours – Palma has always some paintings utensils with him, because it could happen, suddenly, that Palmina inspires him only with her smile.
So he started to paint a new painting.

He painted her golden hairs.
He painted her beautiful Eurasian eyes looking as if she has it opened a little bit and closed a little bit.
picture 2 - detail of Palmina
(This Palma knows from some Buddhist paintings of the female Guan Yin – This he learned at the Buddhist nun on Giudecca Island)
He painted her with white-orange cloth.
picture 3 - detail organ
Palmina played wonderfully on her little organ which she normally used only for her music-lessons for the talented la Zitelle girls, here at the Jesuits.
And suddenly, as his love to Palmina was pure and innocent he was allowed to see the Angel from St. Cecilia¹ which is protecting her virginity.

Beside her, right, he painted a little beautiful angel.
The angel is holding a little music score, a little Melody by Palma il Giovane. (Angels can transport music messages and are Messengers of the highest)
Palmina has now the composition by Palma learned in her heart and she could play the inspiration directly from her heart, completely by-heart.
And she played an own variation and a music ANSWER as notes for her Palma.
During Palma painted he listened to her music very interested. And he felt lucky that she is composing a beautiful music answer only for him. A secret music answer from St. Cecilia to Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
»Palmina, I did not know that you are composing also for Organ…«
And as he said that he realized that a golden light was shining around her head – The Symbol of saints – he realized that the Saint Spirit of the Saint Cecilia was moving her fingers and she seemed to play with closed eyes.
Palma felt again on his knees and prayed with tears of joy. He the famous painter and unknown composer in Venice of the 16th century, he, he has the big honour to hear the miracle music of this Western Guan Yin, the borderless compassion, the Saint Virgin, one of the mystic 8 Saint Virgins together with the Saint Virgin.
He felt blessed, if his live was only for this night with her, if his live was only to paint only this miracle painting of his Saint Cecilia, he knows now why he was born.
Dear Palmina, dear Saint Pigeon Inspiration, Dear Saint Cecilia!
I am so Thankful to know you.
I am so Thankful to have you in my heart.
I am so Thankful for the inspiring encounters with you in the present,
It opens a whole life in our hearts:
The life in the past and future.
In the Past – 400 years ago and century ago –
In the future – in 300 or 400 years and in centuries«
Palmina played like in trance.
»The Saint Spirit is leading her…the Saint Light is around her head and the angel is protecting her virginity«, Palma il Giovane thought.
Over her head he painted very secretly a golden light.
Palma also painted the Organ Pipes and the wings of the little angel.
The first time Palma painted so fast; normally this is impossible to paint such a painting in one night.
The colours are drying normally within days or weeks and you cannot paint in one night. But this night there happened a miracle and Palma felt this and Palmina felt this.«
Outside an old monk, who often has visions, heart the little organ music from Palmina’s flat and wanted to look after Palmina.
But as he stood at Palmina’s closed door he felt the warm golden light energy radiation from Palmina’s room and music. He folded his hands and made some silent prayers. Now he felt on his knees and understood that there is inside a miracle happening and the monk is not allowed to disturb the miracle.
»This is the Spirit of Saint Cecilia. I have to pray that this miracle is protected by the angels«, he whispered.
And the monk prayed on his knees the whole night without being weak or tired for a moment.
During this night Palma painted and painted and Palmina played and played. They felt that their hearts united stronger than ever, It was like a spiritual marriage, blessed by the heaven and all Saints.
Inside his heart Palmina hugged Palma with her music and Palma hugged her with his painting creativity.
Palma and Palmina had such a warm light around and in the hearts that even the night air would be cold from outside they would only feel warm radiation from their hearts.
picture 5a - Saint Cecilia with Angel
This painting is a miracle and an image of their spiritual love.
Never Palma painted Palmina so directly and realistic – normally he always painted her in several variations as a fantasy creation – but this time it was a real image of Palmina Albina.
If you look longer at it Palmina seemed to move her thin eyes: a little bit closed – a little bit opened looking down to the keys of the little organ.
They both breathed like one soul and they loved each other spiritually leaving their bodies and uniting in an eternal dimension.
As Palma finished his painting – and outside at the window on the right side there was the heaven a little bit brighter, because in the east the sun will soon rise – Palma felt again on his knees in front of Palmina Albina.
Now the monk outside felt soft sideways on the floor and slept in peace.
Palma said: »You are my Saint Spirit Inspiration – You are the Inspiration of music, the inspiration of St. Cecilia. You ARE…«
»Pssst… Don’t say it so loud…. We both know now the secret. Master Lao and his monks and also a Jesuit Monk, which has Visions, said the same to me a few days ago…It is our deep love secret… Palma we have to be silent about this secret…«
Palma kissed again her talented hands and stood slowly up.
Then he sat on her bed, very, very tired.
Suddenly Palma felt tired sideways and soft on her bed and felt asleep in peace like the monk outside.
»Poor Palma…«, Palmina said, »He painted yesterday from the early morning till the evening in the Chiesa San Antonin and then this painting miracle during the whole night…He needs a rest.«
Palmina smiled and came and caressed his head.
Two Byzantine Pigeons came at the window and made their soft pigeon music sounds and loved each other spiritually from heart-to-heart.
Palmina looked to the two loving Pigeons at the morning window and smiled. Then she looked back to her Palma and smiled also.
Yes, Palma has fallen in love to Saint Cecilia¹, who was sent by the Saint Lucy² (they are 2 of the 8 mystic Saint Virgins) and who really loves Palma il Giovane. She cares for Palma’s spiritual development as painter and composer.
Her smile leads him step by step into the dimension of the heaven of light and love.
But both tried to keep their common secret as long as possible.
Palmina let Palma sleep in her fine little bed, the bed of a Saint. Palma smiled like being in the highest heaven.
At this slowly coming early morning Palmina started to play on her Pipa-Lute very soft and Palma could hear in his dreams all music ANSWERS Palmina was sending from her saint pure female heart to his pure male heart.
Palmina looked long at this mew fresh painted artwork.
»Hm…This is really me… The first time he painted me exactly like I am looking. It was necessary to have one or two pictures so that the world in 300 or 400 years can figure out that I really exist in Venice and how I was looking like….«, Palmina thought and played on her Lute.
»…but we have to be careful. My father has now a lot of money since the fake-priest gave him so much money to destroy the relation between me and Palma sending me always on concert tours outside of Venice…He will maybe again buy all paintings, as he did in the past, where I am painted on… He gives so much money and then he owns Palma’s painting so that no one can see the painting³…who knows? This should not happen to this miracle painting…Hm?…«
³ there is a historic report that a big beautiful painting where Palma painted Palmina was found hidden in a dark room at the backers shop.
Palmina played and thought long about their secret future in Venice.

»…Palma should ask his friend Orazio¹ to make a copy of this painting…I think he is also his scholar and student… He makes excellence copies, which looks like a real duplicate.
picture 6 - detail original and copy
Sure Orazio will make this copy…It is our only one chance to keep an authentic painting of me in the memory of the music history…my father tries to destroy all about me…He wants to erase me in the memory of music history… I don’t know why… But he is hardly influenced by the church of …. I mean the members of the international dark sugar earth network…
So there is hope we can keep this image for the world…«, Palmina silently thought and smiled about this solution.
She looked to Palma who seemed slowly to wake up, now the 2nd time, not in his Atelier, but in her clean and pure and fine little bed.
»My Palma….«, her heart softly said.
»…My Palmina….«, Palma’s heart answered her and she could hear it.
»…This is a very good Idea to ask Signore Orazio to paint a copy of this. He is a good friend and scholar of mine. He will take care of this painting-copy if it is necessary. Tomorrow I will ask him…

and I will ask him also a copy the other image with you…
A real painting of the real Saint Cecilia…«, Palma said to Palmina communicating with her heart.
Today at night as Palma painted Saint Cecilia both felt that their hearts united eternal.

And as they saw this Peony Vision at 23 o’clock, 11 p.m. Palma’s and Palmina’s hearts where so strong connected that they felt also the same warm feelings like once at Giudecca-Island in Venice at this special evening and during this special creative and inspiring night.

When Valerian asked to see the angel, Cecilia replied that he could if he would go to the third milestone on the Via Appia and be baptized by Pope Urban I.
