I often have a hard to time to express myself through words, yet have tried.
I love moments where I get lost in time and space, that is usually when I am creating – food, art, photography or in nature.
It’s my form of meditation, where I lose myself, yet at the same time create a deeper connection within and with myself, where words don’t need to be spoken as it’s the language of vibration that is emitted through the heart.
We need more of that now.

Not sure if you know or not, but over the course of the last 10 years, I wrote some ebooks / kindle books along the way.
They coincide with different stages in my life, being into energy therapies, vegan / raw foods, holistic health, alternative things, yoga, photography, spirituality, EFT ( & many other modalities), akashic records and deeper diving into consciousness, creativity, the cosmos and yes conspiracy theories .
There are several EFT books to share how you do it and how you can use it as it’s a great tool for anyone.
When I was big into healthy eating as in vegan / raw and superfoods, I got creative in the kitchen and at the same time wanting to get back into my photography, so creating recipe books / blog posts was a great combo. I created a Vegan recipe book, Raw Food recipes and Healthy Eating Made Easy, which is three books in one.
Then I was big into Yoga and wanted to find out what drew people to Yoga, so with over 65 Yogi’s why and photos, I created another ebook combining my love for Photography and Yoga – Why We Do Yoga.
Then I was reading, studying and learning about energy, the universe, who are we, the matrix, the lies aka jumping down lots of rabbit holes and at the same time learning many different alternative modalities, yet getting so far in the training and knowing there was something else, something more and I kept being open and sure enough it was when this book A Story of Our Souls – Remembering Love came as a download out of no where. I never planned on writing a book, yet again I got to incorporate my photography into the adult story book. You can get the first 3 chapters for free to see if you even like the book first!!
On the burner is yet another one, a short one where we dive into energy, frequencies and vibration so we can help in creating a new, higher vibrational earth aka Heaven on Earth. Possible?? You bet, but it’s beyond this reality. When we start looking at everything as energy, then change happens. It will be out shortly and it will be for FREE. Then that is it I am sure as art, as in Encaustic, has been calling me more and more!! It truly is a time to listen to the imprints we are getting from our souls and move more in that direction.
All of the books are by donation, some are free and they are all listed here. I created them at different stages doing things I loved to do, can you ever really put a price on that?
PS PLEASE note that only the ebooks are by donation, unfortunately I can’t do that on Amazon kindle.

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.

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!!

Programs & Beliefs can distort our thinking and perspective on how we see the world.
Unfortunately no one can be told what the Matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.
I’m trying to free you mind Neo, but I can only show you the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it.
We can never see past the choices we can’t understand.
The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
– Morpheus – The Matrix
It’s been awhile I know. It’s weird times and some of us are getting affected by all going on. We can see thru so much lies, bs and manipulation and hoping truth bombs start soon. So, in saying that, I was doing more creative projects, brewing lots of Kombucha and spending time in nature and playing Pickle Ball – I feel very fortunate, with a little self isolating – it helps to nurture my creativity.
So, here we are now, in this moment!! J
I promised I would talk about some things like programs and beliefs. We’ll even go a little further and talk about the Matrix.
Yes, there truly is one!!
Here it is in a nutshell?
The one truth in the Universe is pure Love.
Anything else outside of that is distorted energy.
If we go back to my posts on Energy, Frequency and Vibrations – then you know it’s information.
Pure Love is all, yet nothing.
In other words, since there are no programs running, it is all, yet attaches to Nothing.
Pure Love – is just that.
Clean, clear, bright and quiet.
Yes, no programs running.
Distorted energies are programs and beliefs.
Delete those and……..
What are programs?
Things that run in the mind or subconscious that affects your reality. They emit a frequency as they too are energy. They are constantly playing in our heads, but we are soooo used to that playing out, in our heads, that we are thinking and feeling it. It becomes our personality, which is our personal reality.
Look at your life – what do you like and what do you not like?
There are programs and beliefs there. Some examples are, but not limited too (that would be a very long post!!)
I’m not good enough, rich enough, thin enough, _______(fill in the blank with whatever descriptions fits for you).
Experts tell the truth so I listen to them.
I have to go to school, get a education, a good job, get married, have 2.5 kids oh and a dog and that is the American Dream, but is it truly yours?
Yea, read that again, it took me awhile to get that, at first!
I need to be married to feel complete.
I need to go to church to honor God.
I need to stay with my spouse for the children.
This (whatever this is) is right, that is wrong.
_________ is/are better than______.
And so on.
Programs show up as a theme in our lives – different face, different place but…….same or similar energies. One has to stop and look at patterns going on. It’s not the outside world affecting you that one needs to worry about, it’s what is going on inside of you that gets emitted out (as frequencies of thought and feeling energies) that gets reflected back as your reality.
Are just a few examples of beliefs – which can be programs too.
Says who to any of that?
The Matrix is where all the programs and belief structures exist.
IF, it truly is heart felt, it brings you joy, one has no attachment to it, except that creating and having that experience would bring you true bliss, then it is truly aligned with he heart. Which is much higher in frequency, therefore vibration.
Do things that bring you Joy and keep doing more of it.
Pure Love is the highest vibration.
That’s creating heaven on earth, that is getting your consciousness out of the matrix, that is deleting all the bs – belief systems!!
