I am Ali low res

I AM … Ali.

As kids, we were ‘programmed’ to believe that we have to fit in, we have to behave in a certain way. If we do not, then we are not ‘rewarded’.  At a very young age, we go through emotional turmoil, where we are met with disapproval, scolding, cold shoulders, withholding of love if we deviate. And soon we begin to think we are unworthy. As we grow older, our self worth within society starts to get measured by the car we drive, who we date, success, promotions, pay rises. And this continues to add more and more layers on our worthiness issues.

Ali is the guy within us who knows that our self worth is NOT determined by society, by what people around us think about us. Ali knows that deep within us, deep in the very core of our being, we are worthy. Ali knows that we are no ‘less’ than the guy next to us. Our worthiness is not measured by money. It doesn’t make a man less than his compatriot. You were born worthy. That is a given fact. You were born to be you – uniquely you. Not a copy. An original beautiful you.

The only way to break this vicious cycle is to claim back your power. When you truly believe and know that you are worthy, then no matter what anyone says or does, no matter how much society tries to squeeze you into its boring box of ‘what’s acceptable’ … it won’t happen. Your worthiness does not depend on anything or anyone. You have the power to change anything and everything in your life. And only you have the power to claim back your self worth and own it forever.

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.  I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.

Art Blog: I AM … Adam

Ex's Energy low resI AM … Adam

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.

Adam is your Ex. He’s the person that you loved so deeply that your life began and ended with him. He’s the person that you believed was your THE ONE.  But he’s also THE person who broke your heart into tiny little pieces. He’s the person that walked away without a thought and threw all your dreams into the fury of the winds.

And yet, a part of you holds on (not knowing why). A part of you keeps going around in circles, wondering what went wrong, the ‘what ifs’, the ‘could haves’, the ‘should haves’ … they all start cropping up, driving you mad. You want to really move on, you want to walk happily into another relationship but yet … something keeps you stuck in the past.

It’s very easy for me to say ‘Let go’.  And your next sentence would be ‘Ok howwwww? You think I haven’t tried’? To be honest, all I can say is that you need to keep breathing through all the emotions that arise. Be it anger, sadness, grief … breathe and feel it move out of you. Breathe through the tears. Breathe through the pain you feel in your heart, in your soul.

Only by acknowledging what you are honestly feeling will you actually be able to let go of Adam … with love, grace and gratitude. You will feel things starting to shift, you will feel a place starting to get empty, and that’s amazing because you are creating space in your life, in your energy, for something new, for someone new. 🙂

And when you think of Adam, he will be a blur. You won’t feel anger and heartbreak, but a lot of gratitude for him. One thing that I believe in is that every person comes into our lives for a reason. They have a role to play into nudging us into who we truly are, and once that role is over, they leave. That was Adam. He came in for a reason to accelerate you, to push you, into truly being YOU.

Art Blog: I AM … Chris

Karmic Loop low resI AM … Chris.

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.

I was listening to Tamra Oviatt’s sacred activation Releasing Karmic Loop when I started working on this portrait. And it made me think …  I have friends who go through phases where they look back and think ‘OMG why am I attracting the same nasty boss over and over again? Why do I keep attracting an upgraded version of my ex boyfriend/ girlfriend? Why is this loop of uncertainty, this loop of loss and sorrow never ending?’ Lots and lots of loops and hoops to jump through. Sounds complicated. But is it?

The choice to break this karmic ‘loop’ lies within you. It’s not about blaming the world around us or even blaming yourself. It’s not about thinking ‘oh my God Karma has it in for me’. It is literally about you owning yourself, owning the ground where you stand, and committing to yourself that ‘this’ has got to change. And when you take the first small step towards the change, towards you, then everything starts to release, everything starts to move in your life.

Chris is all about taking that first step towards change, towards releasing that stuck stagnant energy within you. Towards owning the authentic YOU you truly be. Chris is all about letting go of the old, letting go of patterns, letting go of guilt and shame. He is all about breaking through the shackles and lies we have been told about Karma. Chris is all about embracing change, and knowing deep within you lies  power to change.
