ONCE UPON A TIME
I have been working with energy unknowingly since as long as I can remember, as a kid changing the energy of people, places, and situations as native as it was to breathe. I, of course, didn't have words for this. I assumed it was as everybody saw the world, full of magic and possibility.
As I grew up and explored all sorts of careers, hurts, travels, adventures, loves, and losses I eventually came back to the magic of working with energy. Specifically, when I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and experienced a Samadhi (a spontaneous, ecstatic state of being) I knew that I wanted to work with energy full time. It was time.
Since then it's been full steam ahead and I've learnt so very much about my gifts, others gifts and the possibilities available to us all.
WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
I never really thought of myself as an artist, creative yes, but not an artist as such - I am an energy worker. The art you are drawn to is actually an expression of that energy work. One day after guiding an energy treatment my palms were vibrating, pulsing with energy and I found myself asking the energy in the palms of my hands 'what do you desire and require to be?'
It showed me. It wanted to be painted.
I didn't have any paintbrushes (because I wasn't an artist right - [insert limiting belief here]:-) so I splattered the paint, folded the sheet and used the palms of my hands to squash and stretch the paint. Completely at the hands of chance.
Loh and behold incredible images of pure beauty started to appear.
I was interested, to say the least! Some of the images coming through of faces, people and creatures were absolutely unbelievable. To this day my most profound work yet 'Turquoise Woman' came out of one of my very first blinded, fold and splat endeavors. She reminds me daily to just keep going, let the energy flow and the pictures emerge.
CHECK HER OUT
I then started to take photos of the art and digitally mirror the paintings and even more beauty was found as images arose from the ether when mirrored against each other. This is how my Mandala Healings arose and my Tribal Series, through the marrying of the Yon Energies (the paint splatting, raw creative expression) and the Yang (digital structure and mirroring) to create the perfect harmony of artistic expression for me.
This process is accessing a really deep part of me, it brings up the raw and real, mess and chaos and gives it beautiful structure and purpose.
It makes me feel whole...the very definition of healing I believe.
Every day I check-in, asking my art.
What fun can we have now?
What do you want to be today?
Today it wants to be
brightly coloured, comfortably fitting,
Yoga Capris for Mumma's and Babes alike.
It wants to be rich star Mandalas, holding powerful energy and potent gazes.
It wants to look fabulous on asana bottoms and meditation pillows
in studios all around the world.
It wants to continue to share the healing journey.
I know. It told me so :-)
