Trusting Stillness

If I had a dollar every time the word TRUST came up in my art and writing. I'd be a rich woman. Working creatively - not for product but for the process that occurs - allows me access to a rich knowing that exists within. And for this I am grateful because I need to be constantly reminded to trust the body I inhabit. And that it's okay to get frustrated sometimes, but ultimately she is serving a purpose - stillness.

Living with a chronic illness for several years has been hard for me to accept. I have so much I'd like to do and often times feel burning with light and intention inside only to be kept down by a body wracked with fatigue, pain, anxiety and the weirdest of symptoms.

This past week has been particularly hard. I cannot describe how it feels to be healing emotionally and spiritually and not have my body following along. So many of the books I've read and the podcasts I've listened to have told me that if you look within, and begin to heal, transmute and integrate your shadow, the body healing will follow. But what if that's not always the case?

 What if, this is exactly how it's supposed to be right now? What if stillness, art and contemplation are exactly what I need in my life and railing against it only makes things worse? I can still bring my light and intention, even in a compromised body. I know this does not diminish my power. It just looks differently than the popular model (I am doing it now as I type). I know and feel this. I just need reminding sometimes.

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 to assist others in finding their own wisdom, power and peace, 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 make something pretty or have it mean anything, the brain

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

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
