People (myself included) put ways out there that you can support that DON’T involve money, but I think you need to vocalize all the ways people CAN support you monetarily. It starts at less than $12 a year for supporting the podcast and goes up from there.
Thank you to all the folks that are already collectors of art, own my book, gifted my book to others, commissioned art, invited me to their schools, and support @thecreativealchemistpodcast

We all begin as a bundle of bones lost somewhere in a desert, a dismantled skeleton that lies under the sand. It is our job to recover the parts. -Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves

I need to reiterate that every animal bone I use has been found through forest findings. Every feather has naturally molt. Every antler has naturally shed and then found in forest findings. This is so hugely important to me on a personal ethics level and I cannot reiterate this enough.
I've been collecting them for awhile now but honestly had a hard time touching them for so long because I am very sensitive to their energies. Only recently, probably due to reading Women Who Run With the Wolves, have I been able to harness and accept the energies I feel from them. It has been a journey, a healing journey, that has allowed me to utilize them in my work.
I've named this series the Biters. This one is Vicious Biter as labradorite is a fierce protector of the aura and focuses on strengthening one's natural energies. It is solitary work to call back the dead and dismembered aspects of ourselves back to life and to allow what must die to die and what must live to live.
"As we pour our yearning and our heartbreaks over the bones of what we used to be when we were young, of what we used to know in centuries past, and over the quickening we sense in the future, we stand on all fours, four-square. As we pour soul, we are revivified. We are no longer a thin solution, a dissolving frail thing. No, we are in the "becoming" state of transformation."
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes

This week, I felt an awakening from within. A stirring of something that has always been present but patiently waiting until I chose to harness it.
On Thursday night, I was at a play (I am a lighting designer and an avid theatre goer). While watching the play, I had an intense feeling. I've had feelings like this before but never this clear. It was a vivid sense and something told me, in my own voice, "Your car is getting broken into. Go." And I ignored the certainty I felt and told myself, "don't think like that and invite that energy." I am very susceptible to energy and an empath as well.
A few minutes later I felt a wave of that feeling again with the word, "Now." Still with the sense of urgency to go to my car.
After the play, when I walked to my car, I felt with sureness what I was walking to. My car was broken into and I felt it at the exact moment it happened.
Somehow, I knew.
I've had feelings like this before and they are often strongest when it involves a car. I'm honestly more shook, still and it's Saturday, by the feeling I had than my car getting broken into 😂. I don't know what to do with this information but thought I would share. Maybe others have these feelings too?
I was wearing my selenite, and selenite is said to stimulate brain activity, expand awareness, develop telepathy. It symbolizes the clearest state of mind attainable. An attributer?
When I was younger, I knew I was an indigo child but I never really worked to harness that energy; my family doesn't pay mind to these sensitivities. I hear the universe now, time to start listening to myself. I wonder who I'll be in 10 years if I listen to that voice inside my head, the one that says, "your car is getting broken into. Go." Maybe I'll look like a crazy person leaving in the middle of the play, but maybe I could prevent some obstacles that always seem to fall in my path when I don't listen.
I have renamed these pieces (pictured), Awakening in honor of my own awakening. They are in my Etsy shop.
Any other adult Indigo Children out there? I'm wondering what you do to harness your energy and help that inner indigo child grow now that we are adults.
Gearing up to launch these arrowheads into next week's shop opening!
Made these awhile ago. I originally intended on making one for myself when I was in a dark headspace and stuck in a relationship I didn't want to be in. Needed some grounding and protection from psychic attacks within that relationship. I ended up making 5 and gifted one away but still have these 3 left!
I still wear mine daily :)
