My Strange and Beautiful Truth

I know deep down in the marrow of my bones that there is beauty in my darkness. I feel the light in what I used to call my “brokenness” and have found it is just as holy as the rest. There are days I live fully in this knowledge and there are days that don’t go as well. On a not so good day, I will pick up a magazine or stay on Facebook too long and see something that triggers all of my insecurities in one swift blow. I know it’s not real and I still get hooked. The truth of the matter is there is nothing to fix or pretty up. I am amazing just as I am – we all are. The tricky part is believing it!

I want to believe and get to know the real me. That is why I spend so much time creating and writing and asking myself the hard questions. This curiosity has allowed me to begin an epic unwinding, uncovering decades worth of conditioning that’s prevented the true me from making her appearance. What I have discovered so far is hard to believe. All the things I have kept such a tight lid on and felt ashamed of, are an intricate part of an enchanting beauty residing within. 

Just beneath my hard-shelled exterior lives a vivacious little girl. She has a mouth like a sailor and laughs at her own jokes. She’s totally nuts and runs around the house like a 5 year old who’s had way too much Halloween candy. She makes up songs, sings show tunes while showering and farts because it makes her laugh. She believes in fairies and magic, doesn’t believe in diets and wants to be a little overweight and jiggle when she dances. And this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Deeper yet resides an incredibly powerful, dark and still part of me that goes way beyond words. I feel her now and have no way to describe the full beauty of her essence. I am astounded and a little frightened by this solid beauty dwelling deeply below my surface. Exotic and intoxicating, dark and unwavering she calmly waits for me to join her. I do sometimes but only for a visit – a minute here and an hour there. We play with paint or write together, sometimes dabbling with fire magic and prayer bundles. Eventually though, I find myself feeling uneasy in her presence as if I don’t belong and I make my excuse to leave.

This unwinding is a process that is slow, sometimes painful and absolutely worth it. It feels edgy and uncomfortable and most of the time flies in the face of all that I believed to be true about spiritual awakening. What I am learning from all this is to trust what feels right for me even if it sounds or looks crazy on the outside and doesn’t match someone else’s truth.  My truth is all mine and is setting me free.

Frequency Minis - Small Art With A Big Heart

Something magical happened in the studio the other day! I was intuitively guided to create on pieces of small cardstock (4.25in x 5.5in) much in the same way I would on canvas or a prayer card with the exception that they would have even more intention behind them. I was intrigued and immediately started the process. It's safe to say within a few minutes, I was OBSESSED! These pieces are created for anyone who feels called to them and are charged with words and symbols, before water and color are added. Created in small batches and intuitively chosen, you'll receive the one that is meant for you in that moment.  Although the themes may change, I was currently inspired to create the following: Ease, Self Love and Empowerment Peace Love Joy  Love Flow Self Knowledge and Truth Grabbing one for you or someone you love is easy. Each mini is signed and one of a kind and priced at  $25  - this  includes shipping.  Simply click on the button, pay the amount and you will receive an ema

Creating From The Inside Out

Hello and welcome!  I'm Stephanie and I am a Creative Transformation Guide and an intuitive frequency artist .. I have spent almost 3 decades practicing  process art  and I am passionate about using the creative process as a way to unlock my inner wisdom, power and peace. I am equally passionate about facilitating this process in others so that they may live a more conscious and connected life, from the inside out.  I believe now more than ever as we navigate many global (and personal) paradigm shifts, that our creativity is vital and can be used as a tool to tap into our most authentic/Divine self.  Every single one of us is born with a creative spark nestled within. That doesn't mean we will all be artists selling our creations in galleries or writing novels. What is does mean is we ALL have the capability to create.  WE ARE CREATORS AND ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN WE KNOW.  Something happens when we decide to create just for the sake of creating. Because there is no pressure to m

Internal Guidance - Feeling Into The New Paradigm

  I feel like I’ve just finished a very intense and in depth master class. If the course had a title it would probably be something like, “Adapting To The New Paradigm - Reading Your Energy To Know What’s Working” .  It’s been a totally immersive, 8 week lesson that started with looking at how much money my husband and I have and allowing the number to freak us the fuck out. So much so, that the only alternative we felt we had was to sell our home. The minute we decided this, it felt unbelievably sad and we both experienced a huge amount of grief around the idea of letting this “family member” go.  After we worked through the grief, we set about engaging in a string of contract signing with several companies and individuals who wanted to buy our house. It was excruciating and confusing to watch each deal that we'd make, magically dissolve into big piles of steamy horse excrement. All the while, each step we took was bizarrely out of sync with our normal way of being in the world. O
