I want to share with you a massive shift in my perspective this past year.
Since I started training as a Kundalini Yoga teacher my outlook on life has changed and I have begun transforming into the divine being that I call my higher self, my true self, the real 'me' that was lost and confused since I was about 7yrs old under the pressure and stress of every day life, studies, love, cultural and social conditioning, and expectations and projections of 'success' and 'happiness'.
Though yoga and meditation, the closer I connect with my self, the more blissful, contented and grateful I am of life's challenges and I have started to see them all as gifts, as opportunities to grow and to really open my eyes to the essence of my true self. Of course my physical, mental and emotional health has improved greatly since beginning this journey, but more than that I see the world and the universe through different eyes now. Everything is much clearer. I realise that my internal world is reflected in the world around me, and if I change my self I can change the entire universe- simply with a shift in perception!
I recently manifested my own beautful little yoga studio in the heart of Roath in Cardiff - right below my art studio! The power of being in the flow of life and approaching every person and every situation with love is undeniable. It is also limitless. I have therefore been taking time out from making and from doing shows, so I can re-connect to my true self and re-evauate how I express my true self through my creations.
There is a fine line between working from the mind and working from the heart. Making an honest living whilst living my truth and serving others is now my sole intention.
To this end, I manifested a free month-long cruise to the Caribbean and USA in Jan so I can consider and process the events of the past year whilst allowing new ideas and creative actions to emerge as and when they are ready to. I will be taking a sketchbook, some art materials, a yoga mat and some inspirational spiritual mantras. Daily yoga and meditations will inspire my visual journal/record/happenings or whatever comes, and I look forward to sharing the outcomes with you all in due course.
Love and light,
