    what these creations are made from and where I traveled to get the shells and talismans

    the fan and the flame

    greece . hawaii . mexico . canada

    This fiery creation came together with the HAMSA HAND with EVIL EYE symbol for the ultimate protection.

    I found this charm while shopping at the world famous PLAKA MARKET in ATHENS GREECE!

     

    PUKA SHELL was used in Hawaiian culture as a talisman for good luck. Walking the beach, eyeing these beauties was one of the best parts of my day during my time at MAKAHA BEACH in WAIANAE HAWAII

     

    RED LIGHTNING AGATE is known as the spiritual flame of absolute perfection which carries a great mystery locked inside its deep brown crystal. This old stock agate comes from MEXICO.

     

    WHITE HOWLITE is a calming stone, aids insomnia and stress and calms anger....and it was first discovered in CANADA!

     

    ROSE QUARTZ stones open up the heart chakra to unconditional love and positive energy, making it one of the most important gemstones for healing.

     

    The PURPLE TASSEL symbolizes knowledge, intuition, insight, higher wisdom, power, nobility, luxury and ambition. PURPLE activates the 6th Chakra ANJA (third eye).

    It is my intention to be witness to women as they awaken to SELF!

    Being vulnerable and authentic in front of the camera is massive.
    When you say it out loud, the release, not only benefits you,

    the vibration ripples outward, and when that happens, everyone benefits!

    Ange Arbuckle

    Ange

    myGypsy

    Ange was first on the page but the last one I wrote about. Ange is a version of me that is so adventurous, has so much passion, she lives on the edge. I love that part of me!

    I am constantly triggered by Ange and
    I think I trigger her as well.
    I loved hearing her soft, vulnerable voice during one of our conversations, saying
    .'Who the FUCK' is Nancy Bell???

    That triggered a feeling of belonging in me.
    I am here for a reason. I matter to these women and OH BOY, they Invite and Allow me to be all that I AM!

    Naomi Irons

    Naomi

    myConscious

    A knowing was evident when I brought Naomi into mySpace.
    Little did I know the fucking power, the force that I was tapping into when I actually shared physical Space with her.
    Sometimes I feel like her daughter, sometimes her mother,
    sometimes her grandmother haha,
    but mostly her sista!!!

    We have done powerful things throughout our many lifetimes together!

    I have no doubt we will continue the journey

    Tanya Petraglia

    Tanya

    myMagic

    Tanya is a witch, plain and simple. She sprinkled pixie dust on me and now
    I can fly!
    Tanya represents all the "best friends" I have had throughout my lifetimes. She lights a fire under me, inside of me, outside of me, above me, fucking even below me,
    and I am eternally grateful!
    She acts immediately, something I never learned how to do, because of fear.
    I am learning NOW!

    Deb Gleason

    Deb

    myYang

    I feel a great connection with Deb, a very familiar one, maybe even a twin.
     I think we had very similar childhoods.
    We definately have the 

    same relationships with our Mothers haha.

      I am in awe of Deb's courage. 

    Deb shows me what is possible...
    end of story :)

    Mandy Sandbach

    Mandy

    myRoot

    Mandy is myProtector. I feel very safe when Mandy is around.

    Mandy is the builder in me, the architect, the planner, the provider.

    Mandy is also the soft earth, the gentle soil, the dirt, the mud.

    Mandy enables life to grow!

    Mandy represents the space where my roots are rooted!

    Nancy

    myCreative

    I love Nancy! Nancy is the creative in me. Nancy is so alive, passionate and so expressive. She represents all that I can be. My urgency to 'experience' is fading.

    Nancy allowed me to realize

    that I don't have to 'be there' to experience the joy, the love of a situation.

    When you are with a collective of women that are connected, you

    feel through each other.

    The experience is the same whether you are in attendance or not!

    Raina

    myNuture

    Oh Raina!
    Mother Earth is Raina.

    Raina represents the best of me as a mother. The only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a Mother.

    It is my favourite thing!!!
    When Raina is near...
    I know I am being heard. I know she feels what I feel, I know she is

    holding space for me.

     

    Raina GOES FOR IT!

    All of it!

    She is courageous and determined and I love that about her!

    Stephanie

    myInnocense

    Stephanie is always present at the exact time I need to hear what comes out of her mouth!!

    I bet Stephanie and her

    pixie sister Tanya

    go flying around Never Land together

    in search of Lost Boys

    to play with and Pirates to battle :)

    Stephanie represents myInnocense, the young girl in me that played in the woods and swam in the river.

    I know Stephanie will continue to play

    when I forget!

     

  • myPast

    coming home was the feeling I had on this day, on the North Shore, on my Birthday, during the magnificent Full Moon

    A day that allowed me to remember where it all began

    A day that allowed me to remember my tribe

    A day that connected my past and present

    A day that allowed me to remember a lifetime...

    A BIRTH

    North Shore, Oahu

    Coming home to a knowing of tribe.
    As my eye focused through the lense, through the grass, on the primal gaze of these two beings, I was fully aware of the presence of a WILD past, lived lifetimes ago.

    The gaze!

    I see both wisdom and innocense in each of your gazes.

    Both lioness and cub

    Both wisdom and innocense

    Both curiosity and knowing

    Naomi and Tanya

    A WARRIOR

    North Shore, Oahu

    Remembering the warrior of past
    She stepped to the edge and slowly exposed her strength!
    Proud and Confident was she!
    DON'T FUCK WITH ME came shouting out of her without a noise or flicker. Solid and ready to defend!

    I see a warrior of past...

    Deb

    A PROTECTOR

    North Shore, Oahu

    a protective instinct is rooted from lives lived
    The watcher, the looker, the one who signals when the wave is near.
    Wisdom evolves as she watches

    She knows the risks and lives her life anyway..without fear!

    She is strategic, but her plan is simple...PROTECT!
