We are seeing the word Soul used more and more these days, yet do we really connect with the meaning of it?
Soul – the essence of a living BEing. It is consciousness at a higher form that is part of Source (Creator, God, The Field etc)
Why is it so important?
It’s the truth of who we are. We are unique vibrational frequencies that come down to Planet Earth to have an experience. To do that, we put on a body suit (aka costume) walked through the veil of amnesia into the illusion of separation and are trying to make sense now of life.
What is meant by truth?
I share it like this, we put on this body suit aka costume and came to planet Earth, or as a metaphor – we went to this costume party, where there are a ton of others in costumes, great buffet of foods and different things to do while at this party, yet while at this party, we drank the koolaid and forgot that it is just a party (aka we can create Heaven on Earth) and we really became the costume. Another analogy is the movies, it’s a movie being projected out from our consciousness then reflected back to us, yet we are so heavily involved in the movie that we have become the character we are playing totally forgetting it’s just a movie.
We are Souls having Human experiences, yet we have forgotten and in forgetting we have closed down our hearts.
That is the access to the Soul and re-connecting.
We are never totally disconnected, but we can reduce the connection greatly.
How do we increase that connection.
Forgiveness to everyone and everything
Focus on what brings you Joy and do more of that and keep expanding it.
Become the observer of your reality – in other words, don’t get caught up in the dramas and traumas, gossiping etc – it’s all part of the movie / the party.
Not always easy, but ever so worth it as you will find as you keep growing that connection.
Besides, we need more Love in the world, it has way too much fear, red, control and manipulation.
Open your heart and connect with your Soul.
Soul Art for me is in doing art (and I’m only getting started), writing my book, spending time in nature or the beach, going to markets, having deep conversations about life, love, the cosmos and consciousness, creating tasty dishes in the kitchen, going to markets and being fully present in the moment.
These are my ways of Soul Art – as we can incorporate them in many different ways in our living.
How about you – what brings you Joy that you could be doing more of.
Create a Soul Art day!

Ever since doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge, I felt there was something more, something different.
I saw this Tedx talk the other day – and I thought to myself what a great idea!!
For 365 days, this guy did something new every day, now that is stretching your growth, imagination and experiences for sure!!
So often, we get into the same old, same old every day – we go to work the same way, see the same people, eat at the same places etc
What have you been wanting to do that you haven’t done?
What have you been saying that ‘one day I’ll……..? (you fill in the space)
What have you ben wanting to do but are afraid, or fear what others may think? (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else :))!
This is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and do, try, eat, experience something new for the next 7 days.
You can keep it all to yourself or share it – but just do something!!
There are no rules, nothing is good / bad or right / wrong – with integrity of course 🙂
Each minute, each day gives us a fresh opportunity of a choice – we can keep choosing the same thing or experience from the buffet table of what life has to offer. If you don’t like it, now you know and don’t have to experience it again.
If you do like it, then you can have more of it – yet until you try it you will never know!
In the past week, here are a few of my new experiences –
ate Chilaquiles – a Mexican style breakfast, took a Spanish class (always one day), tried shooting 2 new ways and because of that I had to learn had to edit a new way (the above image), I painted my toenails Gold as I’v never done that always stayed with plain colors, sat and talked with my new bff the rooster and it was rather entertaining.
Ideas – but the list is endless
have a space day or even just a massage, pedi, mani or facial that you’ve always wanted to experience (male or female like why not??!)
spend an entire day at the beach
go to the park for a picnic
play pickle ball (or any other sport)
learn a second language
go out for lunch in that cafe you keep seeing
go to an art museum
sky dive (ok that might be extreme but why not??)
hot air balloon ride
take that trip you’ve always wanted to
try some food you’ve never tried (the list there could be endless)
got waxed – male or female
play an instrument
go for a long walk in nature
get some energy work done
have a reading by a psychic
talk to a stranger
take some pet supplies to the animal shelter
take food to the homeless
I could go on………..if not now, why?
The only time there is, is Now!
Create a fantastic magical day!!

After my 30 day self challenge and taking a break from being on the computer so much, I have been searching for some things – what kind of Art Photography do I really want to create.
So much of what I have created and still is in my mind to be created I realize has meaning, a different perspective and some sort of metaphor. It’s a way I get to intertwine my love for creativity, photography, art, quantum physics and more of the truth of who we really are.
I love to challenge myself to learn and grow and now that I am finally stepping more into the creative person I’ve always been, but have held it back for one day, the downloads of things I want to create is inspiring and a tad overwhelming as it’s coming in fast. lol
I also realize that I love a little diversity, not just in art, photography but also life.
I’ve been getting this urge to paint lately, so I took out what paint supplies I have with me from Canada and started playing, which btw I suck at. I couldn’t figure out why I was having this urge and then I discovered some Impressionist Photography and was blown away. I’ve tried in many years ago, but now it seemed different – painting with my camera – so very cool!
I share that with you as a little nudge in your life of do you follow the energy of what is being given to you, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time or do you dismiss it?
Sometimes it leads us to some great things that we could have never ‘thought’ about with our limited thinking.
Our mind is our computer that only knows how to regurgitate what it already knows.
