'Gratitude'

Art is truly healing. Struggling so much over this last week and I don't know where I would be without the gift of painting.

'Child Within' (detail shot)

I have been thinking and learning a lot about intergenerational trauma and how it gets passed on. It is a pattern, a rhythm, a state of energy. Although it can be painful and confusing it can always shift, and the movement of its energy can change, we can reprogram our cells, work through the emotions, come face to face with our shadows and the ones of the past and support them to evolve into love, compassion, honesty, joy and peace. We will never be perfect, because we are human, we chose to be so to continuously learn so the journey will never really be complete, but there is one certainty. Spirit courses through our physical vessels, and we are never unsupported, our higher, true self is always within rooting for us, and if you are like me, who one day decided to cast aside my playfulness, my wonder filled innocence because of pain, the inner child that was separated from the self will never leave and continue to pray for the day that you are reunited. There are many ways to reconcile your past, and be reunited with who you really are, this is just one way I move through this process and express my gratitude for this beautiful life and my resilient spirit. Niáwen~ Miigwetch always! ✊🏽✨🐢 #healthyself #lifeisceremony #selflove #givingthanksforthislife #spiritwithin #creatorprovides #waterripples #medicine #cowrie #rootedintheearth #ongwehonwe #anishinaabe #nativeart #torontoartist

'Konnorónhkwa' 'I see you' or 'I show you I care' this does not begin to explain the deep meaning of seeing others, seeing their spirit. We are blessed to meet everyone who we cross paths with, whether positive or "negative", we are truly all connected. Everyone is a reflection, every experience a teaching, so that we may understand and see our own spirit more clearly. I am proud to look at my reflection in the mirror and say, Konnorónhkwa. ✨

Nothing like a sweat in the freezing rain to reground, renew, rejuvenate, igniting even more joy within the spirit! Riding the waves of my time on the earth, enjoying all that comes. Accepting the challenges, feeling them, moving through them, coming out on the other side, always giving thanks for every experience. I choose to be happy, and honour my humanness.

We are one. 
I am telling you what you already know to be true. Only things like ego, fear, hatred and confusion blind us from our true potential.
