Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent People Ignore.

During this past 15 months, and lock downs and quiet time, some of my creativity I felt was not there, yet I truly did enjoy the quiet and slowing down for a bit.
I thought I would expand my creative juices in other areas since I also could not do Encaustic.
I tried painting, art journalling, mixed media, drawing and well, I learned quickly they were just not me.
I still do a form of art journalling, but my own of connecting with emotions, thoughts, frustrations etc and it’s interesting what does come out.
Since moving into a new space with a huge lush garden and yard, things have shifted yet again. I noticed all the trees and what they shared but I overlooked the flowers, at first, anyways.
Not that I didn’t notice them, but not like I do now. I was part of a 5 day ICM workshop last week and every morning I went out into the garden and played with my camera and really saw the flowers at a much deeper level.
I love nature, the quiet, the beauty, the calmness, the abundance, the non-judgment and I got curious and playful. One of the great aspects of nature but also ICM.
You could put 5 Photographers in front of a flower and you would get similar images, but add in ICM and everything is different, unique and I find rather beautiful.
It can take one beyond the linear, beyond seeing the same old.
I love being able to paint with my camera (and of course torch but more on that later), as some of us just can’t create beautiful art with a paint brush. No judgment, it’s just where our gifts lie.
Since stepping back into ICM, my creativity is opening up more but also my playfulness and curiousity. I do feel like I am creating paintings with my camera, Impressionistic style, formless and different. All are done in camera, with minimal tweaking in LR.
Great way to turn my attention away from the so called ‘real’ world and what is happening there.
How do you get creative, playful or curious?
Photo store is here, but if any are of interest please contact me directly for more information.

Dancing Bird of Paradise – captured in the garden ICM style
It’s been a little bit I know, I have been moving then settling into a new yet temporary place and enjoying the gardens!! Spending time in nature is so healing, nurturing and balancing. This yard has avocado trees, mango trees, lime trees, pomegranate, bananas, guava, lots of flowers, a tall fountain that birds come splash in and a turtle pond!
So I’ve been in heaven just spending time in this beautiful space.
What is it and why?
If Consciousness is playing a game (read my book to understand this more) then it didn’t come down here to be like anyone else. It came here to create an unique experience through it’s unique frequency or so called ‘vibe’.
Wouldn’t that be boring if everyone was all the same or trying to be the same or similar?
Yet, advertising tells us something else. A story.
Usually with the theme of never enough.
What if we were all our own star and have just forgotten that? Now, would you want to be or trying to be like anyone else?
Seriously, would you?
So then, why is anyone trying to fit in with someone(s), somethings or copy other people and ways of being or doing things?
Creative expression is not that.
It’s not necessarily art, yet in whatever or however one chooses to express them self, it will be art.
In this type of consciousness, there is never harm to anyone or anything just to be clear.
How are you or would you creatively express if you are choosing?
How do you know?
I’ll give you a hint, you get excited, feel good, get all giggly like inside and it brings such joy to even think about it. Even a little bit, if one doesn’t deny it.
It may not be that one thing as you start to explore in that direction. If you start to explore yet it keeps changing yet leading you to something new or something else, and if you keep following that joy, it will lead you to the sweet spot and then you’ll know why you started with that one thing.
Don’t question it or try to make sense of it, we’re not always that bright.
Just follow it, and trust.
It may test you just to make sure you will follow.
That sweet spot has no words to describe it, it has to be experienced, has to be felt, but it’s ooooooh soooo good and worth it!!
You get to meet you, the real you at a deeper level and creatively expressing is then, a way of life.
Have a heart to heart talk with yourself – follow what brings you Joy!!
You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.
– George Michael
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
– Albert Einstein
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. – Albert Einstein
We’re addicted to our beliefs; we’re addicted to the emotions of our past. We see our beliefs as truths, and not as ideas that we can change.
– Joe Dispenza
After talking about the Fallen Ones, I thought it might be a good idea to go on a higher vibe subject!!
The heart mind connection IS the most powerful force in one’s self.
The mind is electrical – neuropathways, INvisioning is seeing before it happens. The heart is magnetic – the stronger the heart is connected to the vision the more force the magnet has.
IF, the heart is not activated, example one is doing something because they feel they should, yet would prefer to be doing something else, something that when they think about it feels exciting……..feels good. That is engaging the heart.
Marry the two and that is what separates out the dreamers, the artists, the ones living life full of vitality.
You know it when you meet them as you can feel it.
Love IS the highest vibration.
Why would you do things that don’t bring you joy. Yes, I do get we have to do some things but where we spend most of our time.
Yes, it is possible and now more than ever it is necessary.
I wanted to do Photography most of my life, even went to college for it and won a couple of awards.
But, I got programmed with I could never make money doing Photography and was I good enough.
All BS – yes belief systems but that too!! 🙂
Delete the programming and the heart and mind can connect easier.
Photography is what I am playing more with again and it feels so fun, freeing and frickin fantastic!!
The Matrix has been designed without Love, the Fallen Ones can’t feel that and they hate that.
Marry the mind and heart and go beyond this reality as that is where magic, truth and natural law exist!!
I’ll meet you there!!
PS – this is also a high form of self love!!

If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
– Nikola Tesla
Everything in life is vibration.
– Albert Einstein
Let your love send off so much positive energy that it shifts the vibrations in the room.
How you vibrate is what the universe echoes back to you in every moment.
Everything is energy. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.
– Albert Einstein
Converse with people that raise your vibration.
Maybe the hippies had it right all along??
Ok, so what does all that mean?
I will try to break it down a tad. According to Quantum Physics, Everything IS Energy.
What is energy?
Energy is light and sound waves travelling at various speeds. Light and sound waves are nothing but information. That information are codes, those codes determine the frequency (speed) therefore the vibration at which energy travels or vibrates at.
Sure, read that again.
Your thoughts, your feelings and your actions all have a frequency therefore vibration.
There are higher states of vibration and lower states of vibration.
How do you tell or know the difference?
One feels light and expansive, the other feels heavy and contracting as an example.
Lets take anger vs love. You probably have experienced both, which is which? Which feels better, lighter, more expansive? Or you walk into a room, you can feel the room, it either has tension or a good feeling as another example. You are picking it all up, consciously or unconsciously (more on that coming up).
Your thoughts are either loving and empowering or not.
Same with your actions.
But also, everything in your reality is energy.
If you were to take a table, book, cup etc and cut it in half and put it under a microscope, the molecular structure of it will still be moving. Very slowly of course, but moving. That means nothing is as solid and stable as it seems. Now, we know, it’s stable enough to do damage, ie if you walk out in front of a car, you will get hurt.
What it is saying is, that, everything IS energy.
Similar energy of course attracts similar energy. Like attracts like. Hate attracts hate and so on.
It’s hard to wrap your head around at first, yet the more we start to think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration, love bring the highest vibration, wouldn’t that change alot?
We would have to take responsibility for ALL in our lives and we would learn or know how to course correct when we didn’t like how things were happening or showing up in our lives.
If everything IS energy, and it is, then our reality is a reflection of what we are projecting out from our thoughts and feelings – ALL of our reality!!
Knowing that, who wouldn’t want to create bliss from pure joy?
PS – I will continue with more info on energy, frequency and vibration in the next post!!
Your personal vibration or energy state is a blend of the contracted or expanded frequencies of your body emotions and thoughts at any given moment. The more you allow your soul to shine through you, the higher your personal vibration will be.
– Penney Peirce
Every human brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought.
– Napoleon Hill
Everything in life is vibration.
– Albert Einstein
What you want is already here, in the unified field of pure potential. Everything you need to fulfill your greatest desire is already part of your being. But it can’t come out until you align with it, let go of the obstructions to it, and raise your vibration to the level at which it already exists.
– Derek Rydall

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted I know :), I’ve been busy learning new art and brewing alot of Kombucha – another healthy form of being creative!!
Wishing ALL my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving and friends everywhere, I am grateful for being in my life, connecting with me here or anywhere else. I hope everyone is health, well and safe.
Black Friday goes from Thursday to Sunday – ALL my books are marked down, some I can’t mark down as they are free!!

Not to inflate my ego, but considering who has been on this show I am more than honoured, yet also very excited as not only do I get to share my book, which I feel at this time with what is going on, could help many, but also Operation Underground Railroad. If you don’t know about them, I highly invite you to red their blog. They are helping rescue children from human trafficking. Something I just cannot wrap my head around!!
Please feel free to join us live or for the replay at 8 pm CST, tomorrow night, that is Wednesday, August 25th here.
See you live!
Also, if you feel to share this – would be greatly appreciated!!
