What was I thinking when I got myself into this!!??
Just kidding 🙂
This one is called Dark Night of the Ego
For me it reflects life
There are good moments and bad,
and the bad may seem hard sometimes
but there is always the light,
it just takes a different perspective to see it!
That is what our Soul is asking!!

For me, Photography is not just a means to an end; it can be a transformative storytelling tool with the power to heal, inspire and awaken.
The inspiration for my art comes from exploring and seeing the world thru the lens with a different perspective – whether it’s my Photography or Life.
It’s a challenge for me – I am an old school photographer – I learned in film and yes even went to school to study it. I did work a bit in the field as the Assistant Photographer at the Banff Center, and I did 2 shows – hand coloured black and white Fine Art Photography.
I put my camera down to raise my kids but mostly as I resisted digital and…..here’s the biggie – never felt good enough!
Over time, ok years, that changed.
I created a blog a few years back where I created healthy recipes so I needed to photograph the end results and through that learned some real basics, in digital yet in the back of my mind I kept saying one day I will do more art.
Well, I have been what I call ‘deep diving’ – another name for clearing or Dark Night of the Soul or Ego as I say and there is no more one day.
That is not what living is about ………for me anyways any longer!
So, I dived into learning Photoshop this past November and I am actually liking it now that I know some basics.
But, my mind has created all kinds of images and I need / want to learn how to produce them so I can create and share them.
The challenge is for me to learn and step up.
Now here is where you could possibly help or come in.
I am and have committed to creating a photo a day over the next 30 days so my skills grow and improve.
I am excited!!
People have said to me that I create emotive images / art.
When I post my images I am not going to say anything.
I would love it if you the observer just observed – take a breath, let go of anything and just be in the moment and be present with the new image.
Then check in with self, did the image evoke any feelings, if so what and where in the body.
Did you like something or not?
If so, either way – why or why not?
The next day I will follow up with my message or why I created the image – just to share.
It’s not about being right or wrong or agreeing with me / my perspective (ok even disagreeing :))
it’s about what you feel and where and if you have any judgments and why?
It’s just to bring awareness to your moment.
My tag line is Photography meets Consciousness.
And for me to really put myself out there – I have been hiding this aspect of me for way too long!!
See, the mind has questions, judgments, programs that run automatically, yet the heart is where answers are – most of us aren’t in our hearts enough.
For me to create art – I am creating from my heart, as I have learned to get out of my head more and I want to share my creations.
So please feel free to partake, leave a comment if desired, share with others if you like and any and all will be veery greatly appreciated!!
I will be posting here on my blog and also in my new Facebook page!!
With much Gratitude and Love
PS – This starts May 1st!!

Dance by the Light of the Moon – let the Magic out!
As she danced by the light of the moon, she found more of herself.
When was the last time you dance barefoot in the grass or sand, under the light of the moon with music playing in the background
and you got so lost in the music, in the twirling and whirling of dancing,
in the beauty of the moment of now,
where nothing else mattered
time stood still,
and you were lost in your own world
where you felt a high like never before
on life itself,
and you felt oh so free.
When was the last time you danced barefoot
under the moon?
Magic is always outside of your
especially when we let go of the constructs of
‘how we should be’.
Go dance and let your soul free.
It’s calling you to come dance
even if the moon isn’t out!!

If we start understanding that everything is energy and we are all connected then getting angry at someone is in fact an emotional trigger.
It took me awhile to realize I create EVERYTHING in my world, and people and events that trigger an emotion of a lower vibration (anger, resentment, frustration, manipulation etc) was my own issue.
NO one outside of me can hurt me or trigger anything – unless I allow it or aligned with it.
In other words, if I let something someone says bothers me, then I allow them to steal my peace.
It’s not what is going on around you but inside of you.
Everything is just an interesting point of view – it does not make it true.
When someone is mad, mad at you – you feel it, you know it – as it is energy.
Anger, resentment, irritation and frustration are lower vibing energies and are far away from Love.
In Quantum Physics thy have proven that everything going on in your world is a reflection back to you of what is really going on inside of you.
If you don’t like what is happening around you, start by going within and being honest about your thoughts, feelings etc
You are a walking, talking broadcaster of energies!!!
If we also look at it from a higher consciousness level, we are ALL interconnected – it may seem we are separated, but that is part of the illusion of being here. If we look at the person as a reflection of ourselves and whatever they have said that may have triggered us is something for us to look at so it has no power over us – i.e. – if there is an emotional reaction to something someone said – it is NOT what that person said, it is something inside of you.
Take a look at it – that is moving into a healthier version of you and a higher vibrational alignment.
IF you can see pieces of you in the other person, then maybe there will be more compassion and love, unless of course you are hard on yourself and lack self love.
