Mantra of the Week:
Self-Care Tool Tuesday:
I never used to call myself an artist. I would always compare my work to others and feel as though it couldn’t compare to those I considered artists. But art isn’t about comparison, or competition. You don’t need a certain skill set or be at a certain level to consider yourself an artist.
Being an artist is about making art. Using your creativity to access your intuition and let your emotions flow into a beautiful creation that completely represents where you’re at presently in your current skill set, current interests, current feelings and more. It’s a way to connect deeper emotionally to your inner being by creating something physical.
Art is infused into all I do. I screen print and sew illustrations and digital creations onto clothing and I draw a continuing graphic story for my magazine. But I also write, cook, skate, speak, dance, dress and live all in expressive and intentional ways. This is all art!
You don’t have to even call yourself an artist to create art. It’s a beautiful form of self-care that can be deeply relaxing and extraordinarily transformative.
I will soon be releasing some exciting information for those seeking to tap into art’s healing capabilities. Stay tuned ✌🏾

At Our Weekly Check-In Hour:
Last night Sara Putney led us through a beautiful Check-In Hour where we tuned into our bodies and used intuitive movement to ground ourselves.
She then pulled the CONNECTION card from her oracle deck and using the imagery and description prompted us to share from the heart about what came up for us.
Reflecting on these teachings, I posed some questions for us:
- What relationships feel nourishing to me? Why?
- How can I set firmer boundaries around my relationships?
- Am I watering my relationships in order for them to grow?
- What is something I can do for a relationship of mine to reinforce our connection?
We can’t wait to see you next Thursday at 8pm est for our next Check-In Hour hosted by Ryan!
Remember, if it’s your first time and you are nervous to join, you can always hop on with no video or audio and just tune in. Just showing up is doing the hardest part, but it is so worth it for you to show up for yourself and do something good for your emotional + mental well-being.

We’ll see you then!
