Clarity of the mind can change everything about how your day and life comes to align. Knowing how important it was for me to make drastic shifts in my life, so I could live a life with a clear mind, I chose to take on a whole new way of life. Walking a path of self-discovery and personal transformation, so I could find myself in a new position, and a whole new experience. Moving away from depression and standing more firmly into a position of personal empowerment lead me to a massive personal transformation.
It was after a series of unforeseen events and major breaks of downward spirals that I decided it was time, to leave my home in New York and send out a call to The Universe so to receive deep spiritual healing and soul-enriching clarity. When that call happened it lead me to discover the plant medicine Ayahuasca and when I finally took on that journey, (after much time doing my appropriate research) so to let go of all that stagnation, suffering and suppression of my creative spirit, I finally began to see a new side to myself and my life as a whole.
Through that journey, it lead me to seek out new answers, and forms of creation, as a means to clear my visionary palate and create something from it every day.
I've always been an artist, a designer and a creator in so many ways, yet I never felt confident enough to share that work in a more public way. Through my work with the plant medicine and my time developing from self-reflection, I uncovered a hidden path, that was actually always there for me, yet somehow unpronounced to me or perhaps I was not confident enough to believe in the power of my own abilities. That once I chose to take on this journey, it was as if I returned to "the very beginning" of my life. Living life simply, by painting, drawing, writing and playing every day of my life.
I for far too long lived a "sheltered life" even with all the opportunities and bold leaps I was able to create, the mental blocks kept me locked and trapped inside my self for far too long, that I became numb to the world that was out there all along.
After many years of clearing deeply seeded blocks and unveiling profound insight, I re-discovered the book The Artist's Way. While I love to meld worlds, I found myself inventing my own ritualistic way of life, through integrating practices where I would write or paint 15 pages a day, so to transform the energy I'd move through in more creative ways. I found the more I created, the more I felt inspired to love the life I was living. Becuase for far too long, I felt as though I hated life, depressed and feeling suppressed, I hid from some of the most extraordinary experiences that this world had to offer. I was so unsure of my self, that I wasn't bold enough to show up as my 100% authentic self. That means, being free enough not to "give a f*ck" and let go of any judgments of the soul I am, by me or anyone else.
Ya, perhaps I began to see I cared "a little too much". So when I started to act in ways that had me making bolder leaps, and more drastic life shifts, I realized that it was through my ability to follow my spirit, (which lead me to receive the gifts that the plant medicine Ayahuasca could give), that I soon began to understand, that not all are able to hear the sound of their inner voice speaking. Instead, I found there were far too many others out there much like I was, that listened too often to the voice of their inner critic, so to hold them back from following their own path in life.
You see, no one really knows where the path will lead, as each path and journey is so unique, yet each of us all seek a chance to feel free, free from pain, free from conflict and restriction or limit. So as I soon discovered the moments that lead me to feel as though I was truly a free spirit, without anything else, except my own ability to feel it and create it, that I truly felt called to give back in some way, as a means to support growth that some may not otherwise feel they deserve, or at times can even "afford".
As it isn't always easy to live in strength or find peace when one is suffering from pain. Therefore, as I began to clear my way through to a new side of myself, and begun creating in such limitless ways, I made the decision to share what I have made, and use 10% of the profits, from the Morning Pages I would create, as a means to give back, or rather "pay it forward" to others who need the support in transformation, that truly only Mother Nature can provide.
Thus, as I share the work of my Morning Pages, and other's choose to support my growth and the growth of a collective on the rise, by purchasing a Morning Page design for their life, a portion of these funds, go towards helping others who seek help for their "life-threatening" dis-ease in life.
I created The Aya Fund as a means to provide funding and supportive care, for those who could not otherwise afford a trip to the jungle and receive the depths of healing this plant medicine can offer, along with the personal development they will require afterward.
If you are anything like myself and understand that sometimes we need more then what the western world can offer us, and believe in the power of sacred ritual and personal transformation, are interested in original artwork and desire to create beauty within your home, office or interior spaces, check out my Morning Pages and go on and click purchase. Each piece is a unique creation and intuitively hand selected to support your vision and current perspective, from the hundreds (eventually thousands) I have created.
I cannot express enough of how meaningful the combination of these experiences and ritualistic practices have impacted my life, from experiencing the plant medicine, to choosing to look outside of my world for new means to expand my mind. All while discovering new meaning and purpose in my life.
So please, click the link below and purchase your first Morning Page design and support new means for personal growth, through a ritualistic outlook. There are far too many souls out there seeking answers, with "nowhere to look". These gifts and the funds provided from their sales will support those seeking, to fully receive a more positive approach to experiencing life, by engaging a ritualistic retreat journey with the Visionary plant medicine Ayahuasca in their life.
In gratitude, I thank you in advance for the support you have chosen to give others in life!
