My earliest memory is me showing one of my drawing to my mother. She was sitting at the dinner table doing something that was obviously much less important than my latest masterpiece. In my eyes, I had just done a perfect drawing that would get me hired by Disney Studios (the ultimate dream in my kid's mind). I remember my mother being a lot less excited about the drawing than I thought she should be, considering her daughter had an incredible talent.Read More
So often in life, especially as a woman, I’ve waited for someone to give me permission. It could be waiting on a spiritual teacher to tell me how to “connect to my divinity”. It could be talking to friends about a project until I have enough people telling me that yes, I should do it. Waiting for an A from my drawing teacher to consider myself an artist.Read More
Gold is a bright glittering metal of imperishable nature. It is unattacked by any single acid and is unaffected in its quality by fire. These unusual qualities are its mark of distinction, and we search for them throughout the material realm and in the character of man to find that which is capable of being converted into gold.Read More
Have you ever started a creative project (or a project that involved changing yourself or your life, like learning a new language or get back in shape), and find it increasingly difficult to just do it each day? I bet you told yourself that you didn't have the willpower for it. Or maybe you came up with another reason: it's not the right time, I'm too busy this month, no one is supporting me, etc. I have.Read More
Perhaps the most rewarding thing about what I do is being a witness to people’s reactions to my art. I’m continually astonished by the wisdom and power that comes out of people when they see my art and respond to it. Countless people told me things like: “I saw the same shape while I was meditating! What is it?”Read More
Every month, the day before the new moon is Shivaratri, a celebration of Lord Shiva. The Shivaratri celebration that is happening in February is of the most significance and is called Maha Shivaratri (= great Shivaratri). Maha Shivaratri happens right before the new moon in February: the darkest night of the darkest month, this year on February 24th.Read More
I used to be disconnected with the flow of the moon, just as I was disconnected with the flow of my body. I didn’t know where and how the moon was, and didn’t care. Just like I thought I was supposed to show up and deliver each and every day in the same way, regardless of how my body felt, I used to think that the moon had nothing to do with me. Nothing to teach me. Nothing to remind me.Read More
I know, It's been a little while. I took advantage of this past month to take some time off with my family, rest and get off social media (and by "get off" I mean only checking Facebook 1-2 times a day...progress not perfection).
It’s been an intense week, and today, I want to tell you a story. Because stories inspire, uplift and transport. This story is thousands of years old. It’s the story of one of my favorite beings: Ganesha.Read More
Metatron is this really cool Archangel, and he's said to be the Scribe of God (so he's pretty powerful, you see). He is a teacher of Esoteric knowledge and uses Sacred Geometry to clear energies and heal. He used to be a human, who lived such an extraordinary life that he ascended to archangeldom.Read More
If my inner standard is that “enough” is about a 7 on the enough scale (yes, there is such a thing). Then believing I am enough would be changing my belief from I’m a 5 to I’m a 7. Like that, just because Facebook meme said so. It’s called “raising your self-confidence” or something.Read More
I just listened to a talk by Brené Brown where she quotes a speech that Theodore Roosevelt gave in 1910. In it, Roosevelt said:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better...
Growing up, all the families I had around me seemed like the typical “happy family” . Mom and Dad still together, in a mostly healthy relationship, good jobs, nice home, kids running around. As a kid, I really thought that is how most people lived. Except for the poor malnourished African children you see on television, people in the West, to me, all had nice homes and nice parents and were able to be carefree and play soccer and have big birthday parties.Read More
I can't believe it's been 3 months already that I gave back the key to my apartment, put my things in storage and headed for the adventure of living in a van full time. It's been intense to say the least.
When I left, I wanted to find myself: my strength, my freedom, my inspiration, what is essential and what is not. What feels good and what does not...
I sold my first arwork in quite unusual circumstances. It was 10 years ago.
My dance teacher had challenged us to do something that really scares us. And I, *for some reason*, decided I would set up a "pop-up store" and sell my drawings.
Have you noticed that you see Flower of Life representations on about everything now?
I just saw one on a flower pot in a coffee shop. And on a bumper sticker. Woo-woos and hipsters alike are adopting it on t-shirts, tattoos and coffee mugs.
Why is that?
