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.

An Open Letter To Those Who Would Diminish My Fire

To whoever seeks to diminish my flame - consciously, unconsciously, maliciously or with the best of intentions, Thank you for your attention. Thank you for wishing me well and trying to save me or put me on the right path. Thanks also to those with an envious nature and hidden resentment, who choose to shoot invisible beams of meanness my way. Thank you, as this adds fuel to my fire...... and by the way, I am just fine.  My way may not look like yours. My way may look like nothing at all. My way, may even look as if I am lost or floundering, I assure you this is not the case. MY life is precious, encompassing the good and the bad. The hard parts are welcome just as the fun and easy stuff are. My life is plainly ornate, small in the biggest of ways and full in its sparsity. My life sparkles from the inside out and it suits me.  I have days when I feel weak and voiceless....I embrace them for I know they will come and go. I have days I feel on top of the world and that I a

Hello and Welcome

Hello and welcome!  I am an intuitive artist, writer and creative transformation guide and have spent almost 3 decades practicing process art . Along the way I gathered creative tools that helped me to remain grounded and centered through some of the toughest transitions of my life. As an added bonus these tools began to connect me to my light and surprisingly - interstellar/interdimensional beings.  I feel strongly that we are in the beginning stages of a planetary evolution of consciousness and that  many of us   are experiencing or will begin to know quite simply, that we are way more powerful than we've been led to believe.   I am here to support this awakening and evolution  by  making art infused with light  as well as using it as a way to  connect with Interdimensional beings . Also by using my process art background and the creative process to  guide others to connect to their own light, truest self  and interdimensional guides. It's also important for me to create  saf

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
