Lurking in the Shadows: An Exploration of Judgment

Do you ever notice yourself thinking thoughts or continuing behaviours that you, at other moments, wish you didn’t? Perhaps we aren’t even aware of these behavioural/thought patterns, save for the clarity of insight at other times. I wonder. Why do I think those thoughts? Why do I keep doing that? Once my awareness kicks in, perhaps through an other expressing their truth to me, or maybe an emotion I feel within, something […]

Trash Transformation Story #5 – A Mess Culture

Yesterday morning started with a crystal clear blue sky day. The sun had already begun warming the air and ground. I set out to collect the trash in the beautiful park nearby. Songbird choirs rejoiced as they found an abundant breakfast in the lagoon. After a while of collecting from the path and in some areas requiring a little bushwhacking, I switched gears into creating mode. Gathering the decaying plants […]

A Letter to No One

Straight from the heart. That’s where creativity flows from. It’s straight from where life emanates. When we pick up the pen and just start writing. When we let whatever is wanting to be expressed out into the world. It’s rude. It’s raw. It’s ugly. It’s hard to hear. It’s not fun to see. It’s necessary. It’s most challenging to feel. It’s right now. It’s presence. It’s truth. It loops and […]

Repurposing Creativity: Making the Transition to Adulthood

As I stood on the soft, damp ground in my bare feet, I found myself immersed in the reflective and present moment experience that only an act of creativity can birth. Making what I call “Nature Art” opens me up to a level of joy that few activities are able to match. I love the process and I am unattached to the outcome. I understand Now that we are creative […]

Heart Boldness: Finding Security in Uncertainty (sneak peak)

One of the last things I said before bed last night while Deiadora and I were smoking our dream blends was, “I wonder what is in the future for the internet?”. When I awoke this morning to no internet connection and no facebook home page to scroll down, I found myself immediately diving into other creative projects. It’s amazing what one can get done without the distraction of the internet. […]

Freed Energy: Acting in Overunity

I hear many similar phrases echoed in different circles these days. One of my favorites is, “(blank) will save/help/rescue us”. A fun externalization humans love to do in which we project onto some future date some future saving force that is not us. Underneath this projection is the disempowering feeling of helplessness. A silent admittance to our resignations of any hopes that humanity can sort things out ourselves. What difference […]

Unifying Time and Embodying Timelessness

What is the core of your life? What is it that gets you up in the morning? The real bare bones when you strip it all away. Whatever came to you just now, strip that layer away. Go deeper. Your idea of the perfect life. Your dream for a better future. Your belief that there is some time when all those things you think are supposed to align actually do. […]

The Circle of Gratitude: A New Story of Philanthropy

This is a story that I am practicing each day. In this practice, I open myself to feedback and questions from others so that I can refine, respond, and create greater clarity around the language and intention behind it. Each step of the way I am supported by those inspired by my gifts and I desire to share this opportunity with anyone who wishes to free their creative potential and co-create […]

Honouring the Feminine

Click here to listen to a reading of the post or to download the mp3 Sitting on the slanted bench with my body squished between two, I couldn’t help but allow the music to move me onto my feet yet again. I stood, the vibrations through the Air and Earth exciting the cells in my body into motion. Inviting the story that my dance is healing my body. My thoughts […]

Why I Choose To Be A Gratitarian

  In response to the many reflections that I am observing lately around diet and food choices, I thought it would be an appropriate topic to pull out of my “to write” list. Before I begin I want to share that you will not find any external sources or appeals to authority in this blog – only that from my own personal experience – which may or may not be […]
