Leather Warrior: A New Path

I am very excited to have opened up my online storefront today, paving a new path for my way of providing & receiving what I deserve, to experience a comfortable, healthy life. I have learned, that it is imperative that you do what you love – finding a balance between this, and all of the other many dynamics of living in this world today. It is essential to make a living, so how do we do so whilst maintaining happiness in our daily lives? It is simple – we remain open to what is working for us, while dedicating our energy in a selfless way, to what it is that inspires us most. When we do this, we don’t have to think about the money – the money will come, because we are trusting in the power of our energy, our creations. We will be abundant, because that is the truth that this life has to offer – as we attain and maintain balance, in all ways as a being.

As I have been expanding my skills as an artist, I have come to find that I am able to create through many mediums. I have struggled with which one to choose – which one to dedicate myself to, and focus upon. After having a very enlightening conversation with an elder several nights ago, I came to the realization that I don’t have to choose just one. Yes – I have to choose one to make a living on, to get started with – but I can do each of the things that sparks my fire, as long as I am doing them in a balanced way, with diligence and clear intention.

During my time in Oregon, as I relayed in my most recent post, I went through deep transformations and healing. I am still going through deep healing – everyday, I am growing and evolving. Learning to stitch and sow leather, came very naturally to me – it was as if I was meant to do it my entire life but never knew that I could or that I would want to. It took guidance from my elder brother Calvin to discover this. I am filled with joy and gratitude, when I consider the possibilities that my creations will offer forth into the world. To be able to incorporate my knowledge of herbalism and gemstones, two things I feel very passionately about, with my leather creations, is my dream manifest in reality. I can bring medicine to other beings, in a beautiful way that ties together my artistic abilities, with my healing guidance.

I am looking forward to presenting each piece to the world as it comes to fruition, as each will be unique in the energy that is put into it. Stay tuned for more photos within the ‘Leather Warrior’ section here on my website. Go check out my store at: Leather Warrior Storefront

Encompassing Insights: How to Live Lessons Learned

Written October 3rd, 2015

I’m happy to be alive, grateful for all of the beauty & light that continues to pour into my experience, as my path expands. I continue everyday, to learn new things about this world, myself & others. The most important thing that I discovered recently through a deep meditation, is how to incorporate all of the major lessons and understandings I’ve learned, into a way of being. I will share them below, in hopes that these words find their home at the right time:

  • Recognizing defensiveness as an attempt to keep new insights from entering the mental field; depleting this negative habit, in turn ridding oneself of the negative instinctual response of resorting to defensiveness as a reaction to circumstances/situations that are not favorable
  • Working towards releasing negative thought patterns, one at a time; thoughts that promote or create self-pity, anger or blame, felt for or projected onto others because of anything that has happened/may happen “to” oneself. Every reaction is a choice that one must consciously make, and recognizing that others aren’t doing it “to” you, but that you are in control of your self, your feelings and your ability to respond appropriately to whatever it may be that is occurring.
  • Refraining from judgement at all costs; observing, and only focusing upon the thoughts that create a positive atmosphere. Of course one must make sound judgement upon how to proceed, and how to relate to others, but doing so in a non-attached, non-personal way.
  • Recognizing & then ridding oneself of old fear patterns
  • Acting upon inner guidance and trusting it fully, rather than ignoring it or going against it-this is key, your body will teach you and knows what is right.
  • Practicing non-attachment to people, places things; being able to develop a way of loving, that does not cling to worldly things, but rather is an expression of pure joy and gratitude
  • Detaching from any values that support the belief that success in life only comes from achieving goals; success in life is a process, it can and should be found in daily life in the little things. It is a process of achieving self-control, and the capacity to work through life’s challenges & adversity in a positive, healthy way. Success is an energy force, that must be gained & maintained.
  • Keeping one’s attention in the present moment, rather than focusing one’s thoughts and energy on the past or future; avoiding worry, and instead having faith in oneself and the greater plan.

It is with great joy that I am able to share these thoughts, aspirations & realizations with the world. My intention is to spread enlightenment, to create a space for conversation about such rich understandings. Please, if any of this compels you, reach out & share your understandings, experiences and beliefs. It is an important part of becoming in tune with yourself and evolving.

Collective Energy: Spiritual Connections

September 28th 2015 | Collective Consciousness

The weeks leading up to last night – and I have no doubt that the coming weeks & months following, will hold just as much if not more energy for transformation – truly powerful. A Blood Moon-Lunar Eclipse, in Aries; the last of a tetrad (the last of four that have occurred within the past two years, last one being in early April following the super intense solar eclipse on March 21st) into the full moon for the month of September, directly following the Fall Equinox on the 23rd. To read more about this, check out this link: Full + Blood Moon + Lunar Eclipse. It’s as if new doors have been opened, and the Universe is working to gently nudge us through them for our own good. It takes paying attention, proper discernment & focus to discover which direction is meant to be.

So much change and energetic upheaval has occurred, especially since mid-March, for myself and just about every person that I am connected to. From what I have learned through reading and also gathered from my own experience as of late, these shifts have been pushing around a lot of energy, causing us to look at our ‘shadow side’ – the side of ourselves that need to change – it contains our fears, traumas, and negative ways of being that need to be let go of, in order for us to continue along our personal paths of conscious expansion. The greatest realization I have had in how to deal with so much transformation so quickly, is to tap into these energies that are flowing – to truly learn the lessons being presented, to grow and benefit from the forward movement and expansion.

Learning about the timing of the shifts, and how to focus into the energy that it carries is amazing – it’s truly enlightening, and assists in getting your personal work done to balance yourself. Because of these changes, emotions run high and we tend to either project onto others, or retreat because it all seems overwhelming. The key to not being reactive in these detrimental ways, is in working with, rather than resisting these changes to find balance, visiting the home within ourselves, quieting it down to find truth and stillness. Meditation is an essential piece in this; start from where you are, whether it be just learning about meditation for the first time or practicing it on a daily basis – the growth will come with patience and a disciplined routine.

I have been at it for 3 years, and am just recently getting back into a meditation ritual everyday after a yearlong journey where I was not able to keep a steady practice going due to scattered focus. I am consistently putting energy into disciplining myself in this way, because of how truly beneficial meditation is. My spiritual growth continues to expand as I water the roots of my emotional, physical and mental seeds, with healing energy and light. I highly recommend becoming more in tune with the shifts, if any of what I have shared sounds familiar or resonates with you. This is my favorite and trusted source of enlightenment & astrological information: www.mysticmamma.com

I hold so much gratitude for the lessons that the Universe continues to pour upon my path, through my friends and family, and my daily experiences. It is amazing to look at where I am now, compared to where I was a year ago – and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything that I have learned and am now implementing, to become the best version of myself that I can be. I am hopeful that my words reach those who need it most & invoke inspiration, in this time of great change. Passing along some waves of enlightenment & truth, in great faith.
