Soulfuelment First – You gotta have it or you’ll die

SoulfuelmentJust so you know:

I can’t NOT do this stuff.

It’s in my bones. It’s in my DNA!

When my son was a very little baby, I saw a psychologist for post natal depression, or anxiety, or just plain old I Can’t Handle A Baby Who Doesn’t Sleep And Therefore Not Have A Single Second To Myself.

I told her I HAVE to create art. I HAVE to create stuff. I HAVE to work. I HAVE TO I HAVE TO I HAVE TO because IT’S WHO I AM goddamnit and if I can’t do this, then what is there left for me in this world?!  [Read more…]

Become the Universe within youSoulfuelment.

It’s gotta come first.

Not even second.

But first.

And now I’m feeling called to update this default.

You see, going into my heart space is good and all, but all it does is shift my mindset.  [Read more…]

But think about this…

Where is the line between being compassionate and being a push over? [Read more…]

How to get in flow

How to be in flow - art from the heartGet in flow! Get in flow! Get in flow!

We all want to get in flow – to BE in flow – because this is when we are in our highest place of alignment, it’s when things just.work, it’s when we’re in the most joy, and most importantly it’s when we just.feel.good.

But sometimes it feels like we’re just missing the mark.

In between kid wrangling, partner wrangling, house wrangling, and let’s face it – wrangling ourselves around all this – we just kind of lose the plot.  [Read more…]
