Do you feel the blues in the winter?

When it is gloomy dark outside, no sun, no snow and light seems far far away I’m often hit by a seasonal depression or low energy and not feeling much of a natural life force. Winter. Blues.

So what can I do when outer sources of inspiration aren’t available as much? Blues is also the answer.

I have found experimenting with fluid acrylic colors especially bright shiny ones brings back my joy. The process of intuitively pouring colors together on the canvas and see what emerges is a strangely energy charging process. Already buying and picking colors can be invigorating.

Each color has a specific frequency and when our own frequency is a little subdued – colors are such a great tool to raise it, frequency, mood, health, joy!!! I am especially loving neon colors, interference colors, metallic colors, pearl… all of those hold very specific light frequencies.

Often I don’t like the end results of the fluid paintings at first – some I have to leave alone to dry and then I look at them in a different light! But the actual medicine and excitement I really find in creative process itself less the end results… tho if it so happens I come to love the painting it instantly refreshes me again. And sharing the creations online to others is a joyful process as well.

So if you find yourself a little blue, use blue colors or anything to color your winter! It works miracles. It can be flowers or looking at art as well. Whatever you feel inspired to.

Though spring seems far away … playing with colors I can connect with the life force of spring and feel energized in-midst the beauty and depth of sobering winter.

Stillness is a gift but change is inevitable. Life force is stirring in many forms and celebration of life is always a good idea no matter the quality of days we find ourselves in.

First year I even recognize there is a keltic holiday called IMBOLC – celebrating the wake of spring in-midst deep winter…

So happy Imbolc!

Here are a few impressions of my latest experiments in fluid art. Unfortunately the camera can’t recreate the neon color light… but imagine oranges and yellows and pinks be very bright. More of it in the gallery here.

 

 

Last summer I ventured out into different territory and exploring art from a bit more linear perspective than I usually do. My good friend Heidi Schwarzkopf offered a “Free Mandala” summer class that I really enjoyed.

First I did struggle with the “thinking part” the logic, the precision needed to construct geometrics… however after some frustrations were passed through I really enjoyed the depth and meditative energy that I experienced created the art pieces. Of course I included some un-predictible intuitive aspects of watercolor backgrounds and structures. It made it all magical. And I explored still intuitively where the lines wanted to go, which fields wanted to be filled… so many possibilities and unique interpretations.

In one of my main pieces I wanted to explore what happens when 2 toroidal spheres meet and create a 3rd field – like 2 hearts meeting. And I was more then pleased, surpriced and honored to see what depth and alignment appeared. I also enjoyed using the interference colors for the extra shine and magic.

Since then I am just getting so much joy out of combining the more masculine approach of construction with the feminine intuitive flow.

The last piece I put my new glitter water colors to test and created a piece in time for 2020 Solstice + Saturn/Jupiter Conjunction – a ring of celestrial bodies – lighting up.

All art works are available if you want a piece of magic to uplift your environment. Just send me an email to inquire prices.

 

 

I am very fortunate to be part of Ilan Stephani’s creative team as creative brand directress. Creating web design, online course & product images, book covers, photography and so much more, I have been able to grow in my creative leadership this year.

One of my most favorite activities is doing photoshoots with Ilan. She is such a natural to create expressive & revealing portraits with. The portraits below were created during a rare event in this Covid lockdown year – a live somatic retreat near Berlin – namely “Flirting With Freedom”.

 

 

If you like these images – there are more of Ilan and other beautiful souls to view here in the Gallery.

One of my newest creative adventures to keep my creative juices flowing and spirits alive during Covid times, is experimenting with fluid acrylic painting mediums – resulting in an ongoing new series I call »Inner Landscapes«.

As I have also gotten more deeper into fascial release exercises with the foam roller to release stress I find it interesting to see the cells created through the pouring technique looking so much like the inner cell structures of the fascia tissue on a micro level. Some of the paintings remind me of outer landscapes like trees, mountains and river beds. I guess the lack of travel adventures has got me fantasizing it on canvas.

If my playful color experiments can be called abstract art – I don’t know. But the process of creating them is highly exciting, uplifting, joyful and pleasurable and a wonderful way to charge creative batteries and moods during these bizarr times.

All paintings (as indicated) are available if you want a piece of joy to uplift your environment. Just send me an email to inquire prices.

Also check out the growing Gallery here. More are added weekly.

This fall I did another of my infamous 30 Day Channeled Drawing Challenges with a group of people. And as with all the Challenges so far new dimensions of my expression reveal themselves.

This time it all fell together after the Challenge when I put together all 30 Images and in my library found the self portraits that I created during this time as well. So I just sand”witched” them together in one of my iPhone apps and voila. Totally in love with this new dimension bringing photography and Channeled Drawing together like this.

I collected all timlapse videos from my channeled drawing practice in May 2017.
It was a great refreshment of my channeled drawing practice, fun to watch and hopefully you get inspired to pick up the pen yourself.

Let me know in the comments what sparked for you… watching these.

If you want to try the process in person with me and a group of other creative explorers, your are invited to “Creative Pleasure” – a BodyExplorerIntensive Day for Women!

Together with my fellow tigress, friend, collegue Ilan Stephani from Kali’s Kuss & 101milesofsexualhealing.com I am facilitating a
Workshop in Berlin on September 10th, 2017
at Mariposa (Monumentenstr. 25)
from 2pm – 4pm.

 

 


 


Channeled Drawing of the day: it reveals the integration, activation and expansion of a session I had today with my colleague Samiel Carolina. She guided me into my creatrix center the womb and specifically the right overy called for my attention. She represents the attraction energy in the creative cycle… this drawing further enlightened me about the need for structure, support, safety and #boundaries in order to rest, let go and open to #receiving. During the coloring I could feel there was like an activation of gene keys happening. The outer rings also feel like a stargate that gets activated with the filling of certain segments of it. And in the end a very firm divine feminine energy was manifesting in the outer rim like a moon shape? – very protective. I just love the expanding energy and the colors of this drawing…


 

This Channled Drawing Process for today May 8, 2017… revealed to me insight about how to offer and activate some of the seeds aka gifts to grow and bloom in my self-nurturing system. Remember the drawing about my money eco system?


 

Todays drawing surprised me with its vulnerable innocence yet strong feminine mystical presence. I was asking for guidance a personal issue and the appearance of this drawing , in what it shows but also how it manifested reminded me to be gentle to my heart and strong in my presence – honoring the divine determined force in myself that enables me to surrender in moments I would rather call out my warrioress or collapse completely. The energies present for me are sacred humility, self honoring, vulnerability, love, deep knowing trust.


 

In todays drawing appeared 2 spirals that are connected and seem to be complimenting another – like a feminine and masculine aspect of something that belongs together or is of the same source. The glowing centers are like the core essence of each radiating in their space – one more to the left the other more to the right. And the well of drops or watersourounding or coming out of this. Perhaps its water of life, or some emotions being processed in the purification of the two. An anciant code connects the 2 spirals. Feels very powerful to me.


 

Today in the drawing appeared a moon-sun. i love how the ? moon shaps into a sun ☀️uniting the feminine and masculine in this symbology…. Everything else seems pretty clearly revealing itself. It’s a reflection of a liberation journey, revealing the pure and raw woman within daring mire to be seen in her essence. Hiding as part of this process …

I am continuing my (almost) daily channeled drawing practice again after a few years of only doing commissions and here and there personal channelings for myself or in group I taught. And I am totally enjoying the enlivening effect it has in my life right now. Truly the creative flow and the daily guidance is getting a refuel and deepening in trust and joy.

Today we have the full moon energies in an very intense emotional fueled sign: scorpio plus this moon – in the buddhist tradition (which I actually at some point in my life ordained in as a lay practitioner) – the birth/arrival of the Buddha is celebrated. They call it Vesak. So pretty promising!

So without even trying to interpret anything based on astrology and history… (not my thing) I just felt into myself sourcing my rather intense emotions today and so I asked for guidance in a personal matter.

My drawing surprised me with its vulnerable innocence yet strong feminine mystical presence. I received guidance not only from what shows figuratively in the end but also the way it manifested rather quick, simple and determined. It reminded me to be gentle to my heart and strong in my presence – honoring the divine determined force in myself that enables me to surrender in moments I would rather call out my warrioress or collapse completely. The energies to amplify in me are sacred humility, grace, self honoring, vulnerability, love, deep knowing trust when it comes to facing this personal issue.

Just looking at the image now I receive a clear energy transmission that builts on my core. So grateful for this gift manifested through me. Hope you enjoy watching the process in the video.

Here is the image as well.

 

 

Channeled Drawing Guidance for May 1, 2017

I restarted my channeled drawing practice for personal guidance and connection again and sharing these 2 process videos with you here.

The first one reveals the spring vibes that are so present now with all the fresh greens and rich blossoms everywhere. Truly delightful how it raises my creative energy.

Channeled Drawing Guidance for May 2, 2017

For this drawing I had an intention to explore more about my “money honey” – understanding my money flow. The drawing isn’t super attractive as art but that’s not what this is about. it’s super interesting how the creative process revealed so much insight… starting with lines and structure then weaving in flow, nurturing drops & streams, growing leaves ? and roots, connecting to networks – turned into an entire self sufficient eco system… ? In the end the coloring also revealed through the pink color – that money’s purpose is all to nurture love – infuse love ❤️!!! How wise… and seriously, I didn’t think about anything while drawing! All reveals itself as I’m letting go of pre-thought images and concepts! Cool right?

I like anger!

It’s such an amazing creative power fuel to get or stay in motion/motivation,movement. To fill the body with life force, to create boundaries so I can surrender to this life energy.

It took a while for me to allow myself to let this energy flow in me without following the impulse to discharge it in the outside through blaming others or any form of violenence or to use it as a selfdestroying weapon (ending up in depression). Often I would rather collapse out of fear to feel this immense life power. Fear of it’s power to trigger traumatic memories. I would rather freeze.

Now I am finally able to face my anger and experience this pure energy wave in a new way. I surrender to its movement, waking the tigress, letting the body express in movement, making faces, fletching teeth, stomp, kick, scribble scrabble or make a color mess on paper …whatever …

I experience this powerful transformation with wonder in myself. And I observe it in my clients that give themselves permission to express their anger through body movement, how the wave turns into passion, pleasure, lust, power, heat and natural grounding that can now flow into their creative projects.

I’m really grateful that I can tap into enough anger to fuel me. For once all the crap of the past is useful. …

Don’t become a ticking bomb with your unexpressed anger! Learn to channel it to fuel you creatively in a safe space to experience the true life creating power.
