Life & Painting-Dealing with feeling like, ‘I’ve made the wrong choice.’

And so it goes. The feelings that, I’ve made the wrong choice, or that, I’ve ruined something, rear their ugly heads all too often. My approach to painting mimics what I work on as my approach to life, though painting can be easier to implement my intuitive strategies and learn the necessary lessons along the way, the parallel helps me see things better on my life path about what is going on within myself. What has come to the surface about feeling wrong, feeling I made the w

My Guest spot on the Podcast-Being a Whole Person

You can give a listen or read the transcript over on her site Coaching for Creative Wellness. So, I got the lovely chance to be a guest on the amazing, Being a Whole Person Podcast with Rebecca Haas. This was from back in August so it was really interesting to see what I had to say back then! Feels like a life time ago. Really, not much has changed and everything has changed. I’m still discovering how I ‘want to show up with this positive energy’. I’m still making Yin Yoga,

A simple divine lesson about not letting my past dictate my present actions.

Sometimes our past is the reason we make decisions as we do right now. A lesson I’ve been learning is that although the past might seem to look the same, it is in fact very different than right now. I can think that right now is going to turn out like that past because that’s an association I have with the feelings or thoughts that seem so familiar but in reality the situations may seem as if there are similarities but they are very different as well as I am very different. S

Dear Divine-Day 3-The Circus-The Horse-The Anxious-The Love

Hey, it’s me. I just sat with you for awhile. Just sat. I got the messages. Too many to write here but I’ll write a few. The circus has come to me a few times. I like this analogy for my mind. My monkey mind. I picture a circus tent and within that tent is my mind/my thoughts/my ego. The circus is filled with so many things, going on all at once, the noise, the juggling, the animals, the people flying to and frow. I see it. I don’t always realize I’m in the tent but when I ca

Soul Painting

“Intuition isn’t here for us to create a beautiful outcome, it’s here for us to create a beautiful journey.” Lauren There’s something in me that will never give up. I will continue to make art whether I like it that day, whether you like it, whether I feel like making it or not. I will create. It’s what I do. It’s what gives me purpose and connection to a deeper self. I get the feels. Whether I look at something and think it’s shit or wonderful, I feel like there’s been magic

Creativity and Healing

CREATIVITY AND HEALING Creativity is a joy. Using your imagination is like developing and delving into your own personal worlds, created by you in any way you can imagine. How you’re creative doesn’t matter. There’s so many forms of expression and creativity. Drawing, photos, painting, doing an intuitive yoga flow. Whatever it is, just do it. Just start doing it. Don’t think too much, this gets in the way of the work. At least for me. This is what draws me to abstract art. It

What is Reiki? And even if you think it’s woo-ey, it still has benefits.

So Reiki is becoming more and more popular. It can be done anywhere, anytime. Even over distances. The idea being that energy is never created nor destroyed nor is energy dependent upon time in space. It’s not linear. So Reiki is the channeling of divine energy through one person to another for the purpose of doing the highest good for that other person, whatever that may be. The channeler cannot cure, and although called a healer is not actually doing the healing but rather

Yoga for self healing

Yoga helps to tone, strengthen, lengthen, twist, stretch all the pathways, organs, fluids etc to allow smooth flow and release any blockages. When these blockages start flowing, maybe a chronic pain in the hip starts loosening up, the stuck emotions can come to the surface and we have a release of possibly tears, laughing, anger, shaking; however it comes for us as this stuck-ness starts circulating, as it should, and releases its stagnant hold on our physical body as well as

Creativity makes you healthier

Can creativity help you feel better?! The short answer is YES! But that wouldn’t make for a fun blog post. :-p The World Health Organization (WHO) defines holistic health as: viewing man in his totality within a wide ecological spectrum, and … emphasizing the view that ill health or disease is brought about by an imbalance, or disequilibrium, of man in his total ecological system and not only by the causative agent and pathogenic evolution.1(p13) (The Connection Between A
