Ever since I was a very young girl I felt that I was being watched over and protected by Spirit and my ancestors. I was a lonely kid with few friends and often in my head day dreaming of worlds beyond my own. I often escaped with art, music, and writing stories. Even though I felt alone, lost, and unsupported, I knew deep inside me that Spirit was always with me and guiding me.
Now as a wife and mom of two kiddos, I am on a journey to heal from the trauma that I experienced as a child and reconnect with myself. Some of my creativity as a child helped me to re-imagine worlds that I had control in creating, full of joy and colour, but not everything was so easy to escape from. I have been navigating new spaces within myself because as I heal from the years that the locusts have eaten, new fertile ground appears for me to plant, foster, grow and harvest new paradigms. I am in awe of these spaces and want to continue to share and open up some of my processes as well as how I have integrated my arts, photography and spiritual practices into my life. Don’t get it twisted though, with every light beam that appears to me as I heal and clear space, a dark and lonely space still exists. I am learning to accept and surrender to these difficult spaces and understand that they are just as much part of who I am as my light is.
I am learning to surrender, accept, explore, discover and reclaim the parts of me that were always there. The good, the bad, and everything in between. I am on a mission to show others how to do the same!
