Who else has experienced the phenomena of “becoming nobody” through a creative practice? Simultaneously dissolving from your self and feeling intimately connected with the whole of aliveness itself. It’s the way I feel in nature, too! It’s what lights me up! Let me know in the comments :) 🗺 🌌 🎨

In this video, I share how as a professional artist and creativity coach, I work with hummingbird energy and the heart chakra through my artwork as a tool for cultivating inner resilience, joy, and vitality during challenging times.

Something I feel isn’t discussed enough in the “follow your dreams” space is the incredible amount of trust and faith in the unknown that this path demands. These are qualities that anyone hungry enough can develop within themselves. It requires:
-an acceptance of your worthiness to dream,
-a willingness to show up for your dream,
-a fortitude for taking action on the dream no matter the approval or acceptance from others,
-and a tolerance for being square in the middle of the discomfort of having no guarantee of outcomes of the dream- simply doing something for the sake of how it feels to be connecting with that which brings you joy, meaning, or vitality.
Many days this requires an hour by hour, sometimes even breath by breath reminder as we decondition paradigms of scarcity and not-enoughness, and recondition an inner knowing and sense of aliveness.
It’s a discipline and practice that Elizabeth Gilbert says must be held both seriously and lightly. I love the paradox of this truth.

I was so fired up to recently reconnect with my good friend Dr. Jonathan Pearlman on his podcast years after our transformation journeys began at Prowess Fit⚡️
This ended up being a very vulnerable and passionate conversation around how pursuing various passions helped me learn and integrate greater levels of awareness, aliveness, and wholeness through:
-Yoga & Mindfulness
-Art & Creativity
-and becoming an Outdoor Adventurer🏕
“Who am I in this practice? In what ways am I holding myself back? Who do I WANT to become?” and ultimately, “How do I want to show up for this life experience?” are just some of the questions that each of these practices has posed for me over the decades.
Each modality has helped me learn more about overcoming my own self-destructive conditioning, and RECONDITIONING that which allows my soul to shine, through dedicated effort and purposeful practice, and we explored a lot of them in depth in this interview.🔥
We talked a LOT about mindset, and how our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality. This is the first time I’ve shared this openly about the shadow side of the journey, and what I learned through various dark nights of the soul: from feeling like an unworthy misfit in art school, to navigating grief of divorce, to managing my own fear and anxiety with COVID 🙄
I’m beyond excited for our next convo, simply for how amazing it will be to look back with even more perspective on all that is transforming within us right at this moment, even if we can't SEE it. 🌱🌸🌺🐝
It's amazing how so often, life only really makes sense in retrospect, and that's really where mindset comes in: it's about having trust and faith in the unknown, and finding ways to connect with what we love even when it doesn't make sense to our rational minds. I'm so glad we got to explore this together! 🦅🌈

For International Women's Day I want to invite you all to sincerely congratulate yourself every time you do something that requires faith in yourself, even if you don’t get the results that you want. This is the mindset that will bring unfathomable amounts of gifts forward from within you, and the world NEEDS your courageous heart now more than ever.
Stay strong. Keep going. Keep growing. Keep glowing and flowing. Be your own hero. Train every day like the warrior you are and be stronger than any thought or belief that holds you back from being fully lit UP and for God’s sake, LET GO of playing small so others feel comfortable.
Be brave and let that beautiful heart of yours shine through. Let yourself be as wild and messy and untamed as nature herself and make the damn “mistakes”
Make the art. Write the screenplay. Sing the song. Tend the garden of your soul. Laugh and dance and cry like you mean it. Spend regular time with your soul in solitude considering just how much your presence matters in this world at this time. Surround yourself with those who see and honor your true radiance.
Let’s build a bonfire of light, fueled by the benevolent ancestors around the world who built the pyre, and burn away any narratives within that are preventing us from accessing the power of own courageous hearts.
Let’s let our grievances, jealousies, fears, and insecurities be our teachers rather than our enemies.
Let us create the psychic garden bed for our daughters and granddaughters and great-great-great-great granddaughters to flourish in knowing the worth, power, magic, and grace within their sacred hearts long before they enter the womb of creation, by creating peace within our own inner beings
And, let’s honor the men out there who see and support us. They're also navigating generations of collective trauma and wounding, and need our compassion more than we can possibly imagine.
Much love to you all, and I look forward to sharing in more adventure retreats soon! The vision is already in place!
