who I am & why I make art…

Creating art helps me be a conscious human.

Here are questions that I ask myself whenever I begin to get a little out of balance:  Does what I am doing right now make me feel good being me? If not – What would make me feel good being me ?   Why am I doing things that don’t make me feel good being me?   What am I going to do right now to move me in the direction of feeling good being me? How will my feeling good serve others?

I do my best to share my Best Self Every Day in Every Way.

I realize more and more how important it is to live from your heart – no more lying – no more pretending – no more not being nice to myself or others.   It can be scary – however, it’s scarier to see what happens when you don’t!

When you’re not living from your heart – it affects the ENTIRE PLANET!  We are all one.

Many unanswered questions often stall our abilities to pursue our dreams.

2012-04-16 20.19.14

I’m not always sure what the answers or solutions to many of

our current challenges both collectively and individually.

I discovered that anything is possible if I am willing to take action.

I’m willing, ready, and able to take action – are you?!

Inspired Action + Conscious Intention = Dreams Manifested!

My intention is to work with others to share our skills and talents to create a thriving heart-centered communities.

I collaborate with others who see the value in honoring Mother Earth and all the creatures who call it home.

What Trickydame has learned so far from her MPL special guests thus far…

Sunday, August 22, 2010 will be my 12th BTR Radio show!

As I prepare for the show tomorrow with Gerlaine Reliford I began to look back on what I’ve learned from my other special guests. One of the reasons I began to invite others to share their Magic Passion Love with me is because I am always open to discovering new ways to ALLOW MY MAGIC … FEEL MY PASSION … LIVE MY LOVE! There are so many wonderful souls who are sharing their personal experiences so that others can WITNESS THEM! By witnessing positive change – it shows you that anything is possible!! Gerlaine is SAYING YES TO LIFE — and one way she is doing this is with the Massive Change Challenge … LISTEN TO THE SHOW TOMORROW NIGHT TO FIND OUT MORE!!

Call in and chat: Call-in Number: (347) 202-0609
or listen on line!!

Here’s what I’ve learned from…
Courtney Mclean has an amazing talent as a very smart writer/singer who is proud to live her words honestly! On this show, I wasn’t keeping a secure internet connection so while I was trying to get a secure line, she sang a song for us! It was lovely ( you can go back and listen online!!) – and her voice inspired me to stop struggling with trying to get on line and instead… call in the power of everyone listening to help get online. I asked for 30 seconds of silence to concentrate on getting a secure internet connection as well as help stopping the oil lean in the Gulf. Low and behold, within minutes I was back on line and taking calls! Then a few days later, the oil leak stopped!!! Coincidence?! Who knows?! Who cares – the end result is positive… my show with Courtney reminded me to keep ASKING my guides and people around me to SHARE energy to create positive outcomes for all of us!!

My next guest was one of my co-creators on the 100 Day Reality Challenge, Stacy Stehle! Listen to this show and find out how she uses SEA CREATURES as guides to understanding ourselves!!

HAVE YOU MET YOUR INNER SHARK?!?!

The bit of wisdom that I really am grateful Stacy shared was the info about PRE-PAVING my day … before the day begins (or the night before), she shares that she states out loud how she feels about doing the tasks of the day. Stating out loud how the day is going to go, how she will handle the tasks and any surprises and how she feels at the end of the day. This has been extremely helpful to add to my list of daily tools that I use to stay in balance in my own life. I have said for years, “today is a good day” and now I add, “Today I feel awesome about blogging because the words and ideas come easily to me. I am able to blog enough today and still have time to chill & process. I enjoy all of the food that I eat today and having the groceries that I need makes it simple for me to prepare.” Pre-paving your day so you don’t have to think about which route you will be going …its already set in your spiritual GPS!! Thanks Stacy!

As you can tell, I have lots to say about my SPECIAL GUESTS!!! Because as Stephen M Thorton reminded me is we all have a responsibility to enjoy our lives work and do what we enjoy! Stephen is a talented musician and is fortunate to be working in the music industry. How does someone who works in a Bed Factory or as a cashier/stock person in a grocery store enjoy our work!? Recently I’ve met people who work in factories or stores and as I told them, people who make beds are doing the world a great service! I loved my amazing soft bed I had in NYC! Thank you to everyone from the people in the factory – to the drivers who drove it to the store – to the salesperson who sold it to me! The same goes for people who work in Grocery Stores! We are so lucky to be able to go into stores and have all of the food we need at our fingertips!
Thank you to all of those people who keep it stocked so neatly for us to find and for the cashiers who put it in the bags. We need food and I try to imagine what we would do if we didn’t have buildings filled with food to feed us! I would suggest that most every job that is out there in our society has a purpose to serve society. Its important to appreciate it!!

Last week I chatted with Deborah Kagen – Mojo Recovery Specialist!! This show was so insightful because we talked about ways to stop those NAGGING PAST LIMITING BELIEFS!

STOMP YOUR FEET!! and this week as I’ve been working on the plans for the MPL-USA Art Tour – there has been a lot of stomping feet!!! These shows are more proof that we all experience similar issues when working on Allowing Our Magic Feeling Our Passion Living Our Love!!

The Manifesting Circle show is still one of my favorites and I hope to do it again — if you want to listen – here’s the link to this show!

I learned a lot from the Spontaneous Special Guest – AMY CLARKE — however I think I want to hold off writing about my shows with her until after our second show together – Sunday August 29!!!

Thank you to everyone who’s listened, called and shared the link to your friends. I am starting to book my Fall Special Guests, details will be coming soon. There will be surprises, art and perhaps a chat about Menopause!

Magic Passion Love is EVERYTHING and EVERYTHING is Magic Passion Love!

I’ve been receiving a lot of what I’ve been asking for in the last few months and it feels good. However, I am realizing it feels good to receive what I’ve been receiving because I’m READY to receive — truly receive it so that I ALLOW FEEL LIVE my Life 100%.

As with so many of us, there are two areas that we often feel that is lacking – this is our finances & romantic relationships! If I can find a place to release the “need to fear” these areas – I truly believe that I will receive an amazing financial opportunity that will really make me feel good being an artist and as soon as I am 100% comfortable to receive the love & attention from a man – I will meet the right man for me to be in a romantic partner-friendship with.

It doesn’t matter what I’m doing because when the time is right, we will meet at the exact spot that is already destined to happen – ha! Yes … this is an amazing moment in my spiritual growth and I am grateful to be sharing this with my co-creators … It is important to have witnesses to our spiritual growth. We can be our witnesses … what are you witnessing in yourself today?!

I have witnessed that I am finding ways to feel bad about myself & the ideas of me being in a healthy sexual/romantic partner-friendship with a man. Which is so unacceptable (it doesn’t make me feel good!!) … so I’m writing a blog about what I’m ready for!!

My ideal romantic partner-friend is a man who is looking to share a moment in time with me — this moment is as long as it feels good. In this moment, we live our lives!! For me, my life is currently in a constant state of flow – I will be traveling soon and if he wanted to join me that would be awesome. However, if the moment shifts and it feels right to stay in his home that he’s created, this is also possible. Unlimited possibilities on how we share time together.

My life’s work is how i spend my moments in life – I am an artist who shares magic passion love… and there is room in my life to inspire & support his life’s work.

To feel good, my mind/body/soul requires being with sexy, smart, cute, funny, spiritual, creative, clever, kind, honest, responsible man. My body/mind/soul also needs to be cared for, sexually, emotional, physically …. and to have one man who is open to giving this attention to me – I am so willing, able and ready to support his own sexual, emotional, physical needs to find balance in his life.

It is safe for me to meet him – what is mine has not passed me by.
I am worthy loving – my body is worth loving.
Being honest & Laughing is what is so awesome about our relationship
We easily & effortlessly get to know one another

Thank you for being a witness to the release of all fear of being in a romantic partner-friendship!

I allow my magic, I feel my passion, I live my love which attracts my romantic partner-friend to appear!

blog post I wrote for http://www.cocreatingourreality.com/profiles/blogs/regarding-my-romantic

Settling in on Tybee Island takes time…

Saturday, June 5 will be my one month mark of being on Tybee Island. I will admit this last week as been a week of allowing myself to get used to the idea that I am staying here for as long as it feels good. When I left NYC almost 2 months ago (June 12!!) it was my intention to find a way to travel across the country to share Positive Energy. This is still something that I am open to and I’m visualizing daily however, sometimes, you need to trust your INTUITION and act accordingly.

Every thing that I need is coming to me very easily here and I really like living so close to the ocean. On the evening of the full moon, I walked to the beach, BAREFOOT at 9pm and stayed out there for 2 hours!! Watching the water glisten under the full moon glow was awesome!! I’m also getting to know the locals – on the North Side and the South Side of the Island!

Magic Passion Love knows no boundaries!

I plan to document as often as I can so I can share my Tybee Art Adventure with you! I’m also planning on working on my own relationship with my spiritual self and my physical self. I’ve been meditating daily, listening & using affirmations, and painting a lot!! This is why I’m here … to paint! To be an artist! I’m very grateful for this!!

I’m hoping after tonight I will have a part time job, will share the details if it works out! Which I’m sure it will because I pulled my Wisdome of Avalon Cards by Collette Baron Reid last night and as usual, her cards rocked.
Highly recommend checking her out!!

Every day I continue to
Discover a new way to enjoy my life –
Manifest exactly what I need –
Spend time with nice people who share love –
Enjoy a new miracle of kindness –

Every day I am very grateful for my courage to feel good being me 24/7!

I appreciate your support and readership of my blog.
if you are so inspired by my work, please visit my website:
www.trickydame.com and order a Intuitive Abstract Energy Art and/or forward this to anyone who you think might enjoy the ideas of magic passion love!

Relax & Enjoy your day — it’s a good one!

Trickydame on Tybee!

Making a decision to stay on Tybee Island is one of the most interesting decisions I’ve made in a long time!! HOWEVER …

Life is what you make it – Make it Interesting!!

And … this is how I want to live my life! WOW!

I’m learning more and more about how to
ALLOW LIFE
FEEL LIFE
LIVE LIFE
and I’m giving myself TIME! What’s the rush?!

I suppose this is why I was guided to this place — to slow down and listen to my soul. While I listen to my soul, I’m so grateful for the various characters I’m meeting and being able to sit and be with Mother Nature so easily.

I’m also learning how to take ACTION and WAIT! Things happen a little slower here on Tybee Island … and I have to TRUST that as soon as the busy season starts, I will have a job at the local cafe. I trust the process of life and all that I need will always be taken care of. SO FAR SINCE I’VE LEFT NYC this is true!! So just believe it JOANNE!!!

Also … RECOGNIZE what you are accomplishing instead of beating yourself up for what YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH!!

I am constantly inspired and in awe of all of the people who are living their PASSIONS! And I’m constantly reminding myself NOT TO COMPARE myself to them … rather ALLOW MYSELF to be INSPIRED by them…. thus inspiring my OWN PASSIONS TO GROW!

We are all exactly where we need to be! We are all being exactly who we can be! We are all exactly doing what are doing! We are all exactly sure WHY we are who we are!!

SOMETIMES we forget!! (or get distracted!!)

This is why its so important to continue to work on YOUR INTUITION – we are all sixth sensory beings!! So many people are sharing great tools on how to access this power. I’m listening and reading lots to strengthen my own Intuition!
I invite you to listen to Sonia Choquette or David Morelli. These two people are inviting us to TRUST OUR VIBES and ENWAKEN!!!

I’ve always been a big believer in AFFIRMATIONS but in this past week, I’m finding a new understanding of how important they are. And is it any coincidence that the same week I tape all over my little room at the Carbo House all of my daily affirmations from my Louise Hay daily calendar is the same week she launches her new book, “EXPERIENCE YOUR OWN GOOD“!!????

Positive affirmations are solutions that will replace whatever problem you might have. By repeating these affirmations over and over, you’ll be planting new seeds in the fertile soil of your subconscious mind, and they’ll become true for you. Louise Hay

I believe if I continue to trust & use my intuition and believe & say my affirmations — I will feel FREE to Live Fully!!

Interestingly enough — right now I DO feel free to live my life!
WOW!!

One month on the road!

MPL-USA Art Tour so far…

I arrived to Tybee Island on Saturday …and it’s been 4 days. I feel really good. I feel really amazed that this is what has manifested for me. Its positive proof that Law of Attraction does work for me. Which is one of the reasons I am traveling…to understand these laws better.

I look at my time in Atlanta very fondly and appreciative!! (especially for my friend Beth!!) So grateful for this time to relax and let go of NYC! It was so beautiful and GREEN! I loved the walks I took especially to the Lullwater Bird Sanctuary off the By Way. Walking through the neighborhood was so enjoyable! The houses were gorgeous, the lawns filled with so many different kinds of flowers, herbs, and TREES!! Stepping out and enjoying bits and pieces of the Atlanta scene from Little 5 Points on 4/20/10 – where there was a 420 Party at the local head shop! The lady manager was sharing lots of Love!! Stopping off at a great bar where I could go online and have a BLT & Beer for $10.50! My first reminder that I was “really out of pricey New York City!”

Now I’m in Tybee Island, what some have lovingly called “The Redneck Rivera”. I appreciate the diversity of class however, I am saddened by the racist police force. If I were to settle in a southern town, I know I would have to share the importance of Tolerance and Peace!

Most of the people I’ve met are very open to my ideas about Magic Passion Love. Its going to be fun to get to know the locals. There are two gentlemen that sit in front of my door – a retired businessman who works at the local café and musician who plays keyboards and sings the Standards. They sit in chairs on the porch as people walk by. It’s hilariously wonderful!


Riding the bike on the beach yesterday afternoon was amazing!! Almost as amazing as riding the bike around the island the other day. However the walk on the beach last night to watch the sunset has been the best and I’m doing it as often as I can. I’ve been inspired to make Intuitive Art – looking to start offering to make intuitive drawings for others. Here’s one that I made on the beach …

I have things to do and I have time! I’m getting into a routine – it takes a day or two – to set up your life!?! Writing a lot !

Allowing myself the time to get in touch with my intuitive self has been awesome. I’m using all of my “wellness” tools to access the ART of ALLOWING!!
every day, I read my morning affirmations,
every day, before I sleep, I release & relax
every day, I write my gratitude list
every day, I share time with like minded people (on or off line!)
every day, I meditate
every day, I exercise
every day, I eat
every day, I sleep
every day, I breathe
every day, I love & approve of myself at 1:11pm

Its an every day job to …
Allow my Magic
Feel my Passion
Live my Love!

Another Week in Atlanta …

It’s May – a new month – a new adventure – the same ME!

My third week on the “MPL-USA Art Tour” has been very interesting …as I keep working with the “What the F#$K am I doing?!” …. and I suppose this is a question that I’ve always asked myself. I also suppose there are others who ask themselves this same question …. and something that I keep telling myself is – JUST RELAX … ENJOY your life right now and the answers will come!


Not to worry about the Hows, Whens, Whats, Wheres ….its the WHY!?!

WHY AM I TRAVELING?!
to ALLOW my MAGIC!
to FEEL my PASSION!
to LIVE my LOVE!

and if I continue Believing in the WHY … all of the answers will come!

Here’s some clips of sights of beautiful Atlanta that are definitely helping me relax & enjoy!

Trickydame shares MPL on Amtrak – WOW!

Monday, April 12, 2010 I caught the 2:15 Amtrak – the Crescent Line to Atlanta from Penn Station, NYC to begin the MPL-USA Art Tour. My two FCW friends Abundant Jen and Pretty Positive Paula (who took the photograph me) were there to send me off!

If you are inspired by my work and are able to donate money, please know that this one of my ways to create financial abundance while traveling. Depending on your donation, I will send you personal affirmations (custom created for you) as well as other special gifts. I love creating affirmations and to be able to create for others is one of my gifts – allow me to add positive energy to your life! To your manifesting desires!

DONATE HERE

If I could get 100 people to donate $20, this would offer me a major piece of mind so I can pay my expenses while on tour. I’m calling a few galleries and contacts I have who might be interested in buying a painting. I brought my art in a bright orange tube!

In addition to selling my paintings, I have my MPL Oracle Art Cards, Business Card Cases and Re-Energizing Sessions to create financial abundance in my life.

I’m going to host a FCW Society Brunch on May 2 – I know so many FCW down here! I hope my friends that I’m dog sitting will be up for hosting it as they have an amazing back yard and are FCW!

I am very grateful for this opportunity take this journey however I’m not doing it all by myself. There will be many lessons that I will be learning over the next few months and I would love to share them so we can all benefit.

We are experiencing this spiritual shift together and it’s about connecting the Magic Passion Love Energy from ME – to – YOU – to – THEM! I am being guided to share not only to people I meet but to the people who are following me online!

Thank you so much for being a part of my journey!! xoxoxoxox

So here’s the story about my train ride – the people I met on


Trickydame NOTE:
I am going to describe all the people I meet based on various demographic descriptions because this is what I find so fascinating – there are people in all social demographics that I am having MPL conversations – showing me that it doesn’t matter what race/sex/occupation/sexual orientation/etc…if your spirit is willing so is your body!

Just before dinner time, I began chatting with a young white woman (early 20’s) sitting across the aisle from me. She & her very big 6yr old son were traveling back to Atlanta – she prefers traveling by train so her son can move around. He was very well-behaved for a 6 yr old boy and I told her so the next morning. I feel its good to share with moms the good work they do raising their children – cuz I just couldn’t imagine being a full time mom! This young mother was going back to school to study business after she lost her job at the pharmaceutical research company – she wasn’t that upset about the job loss. She had a degree in biology and enjoyed research but was very fed up with the way the company she worked for were conducting their research. She had more ambition and was studying business.

She asked me where I was going so I told her I was traveling to Atlanta to stay with a friend and to begin sharing my art and positive energy while using the Laws of Attraction. Her eyes perked up with those 3 words – and she asks if I’ve seen the film, “The Secret”. (so grateful for that film!!) We had a wonderful conversation about the choices we make, how we use our feelings and I shared the book, “you can heal your life” with her.

While I was having a conversation with the young mom, in the seat behind her was an attractive older black couple (60s), he in nice black suit with time and she was all in PINK! Her hat, pantsuit, purse and shoes were all varying shades of pink. I enjoyed catching glimpses of her smiling as she listened to me explaining how we are all connected via source energy including to our planet. I was in completely in awe of the couple’s sophistication. That evening when everyone was sprawled out sleeping, they were sleeping with their hands in their laps and chairs half tilted back. In the morning, the looked completely refreshed!! Unlike the rest of us J I didn’t speak to directly to them, just a few smiles – however, I didn’t need to speak to them. She knew what I was talking about … I could tell by the way she held herself.

I feel my MPL Conversations are about offering people a safe space to talk out loud about their “spirit”, “universal energy”, “the shift” that’s happening and other metaphysical ideas because so many of us are experiencing the shift whether we are aware of it or not. You can’t talk about this to people who aren’t feeling it and yet IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS!!!

So through my travels, I will meet all kinds of people in their realities and be available to chat with them … hear their ideas.

Being on an Amtrak train is an interesting reality with lots of different kinds of humans! When I first got on the train, I was put in an aisle seat w/an attractive black woman (late 20/early 30) who was working on her laptop. It looked like she was a law student or even perhaps a paralegal. She wasn’t very chatty yet friendly enough. She asked the conductor for a sleeper car if one should open up. A female voice from behind her asked about they were and I said expensive and she said about $400. I followed the conductor to ask him if it would be possible for me to have a window seat …I was looking forward to staring out the window at sunset! He sounded a little gruff and mumbled, we have a full train. I assured him, I was fine but if it was possible, it would be so cool. So I went back to my seat to make it cool to sit there if this was to be my seat for the train ride. The woman sitting behind us, offered to switch her window seat for my aisle seat and I said, “no thanks, I’m ok now” and told my seat mate, “I’d rather sit next to an attractive woman than an over weight older man.” – not sure if she smiled or was stunned! But hey it was the truth.

The train pulled out of NYC – watching the skyline disappear will always be in my mind – I am not sure when I’ll be returning so this trip is still a bit surreal.

As I’m thinking about life, the woman behind us starts to talk to her seat mate that she was on her way home from visiting one of her three children and she has five grandkids. When we heard that she had 5 grandkids, my seat mate and I looked and both agreed, she didn’t look like a grandma! She was one of those sexy grandmas – a Latin/Italian looking woman with bright red lips, some kind of tattoo on her breast. She wore tight jeans with high heels. She was a colorful character that you enjoy on train rides. (unlike the drunk guy who kept popping pills for the first few hours and by midnight had to be escorted to another seat by a conductor! It was one of those moments that brought all of the passengers together in the middle of the night!)

As we pulled out of the next train stop, the conductor came by and had me follow him and he showed me to my window seat! As I was packing up to move, I shared my tour with the sexy grandma and attractive seatmate, who both seemed interested in sharing positive energy with others. In fact, when we got to Atlanta the next morning, they both wished me lots of luck on my journeys.

I got comfortable in my new seat, turned on the macbook so I could listen to Hay House podcasts and made myself a mimosa with the small bottle of champagne I got for my bday. (thanks Heidi & Janet!!) & bottle of Tropican OJ.

I dosed off after the first glass and when I woke up, I had a seat mate who got in Wilmington, DE. He was a nicely built black man who was watching a dvd on what was his dvd player from his car. I shared my bewilderment that people really watch dvds in cars?! Its for the kids he says but I replied, “hell, we didn’t have dvds – we read books” … he smiled and went back to watching his movie. He sat next to me for about an hour – we chatted just a little about his losing his job, living in NJ for a month, heading back to Atlanta for a new job. He is an apprentice to be an engineer who helps factories create production lines to make bottles. We had a nice conversation about recycling, plastic and glass.

He got up to go get some food and I stared out the window. The sun was starting to set. When he got back, he ate his food then got up and told me, he was going to move up front to a seat by himself. I was like ok – see ya!

After he left, that’s when I chatted with the single mom for about an hour…she needed to get her son some food and ready to sleep. I wanted to enjoy my transition time from NYC to Atlanta and not having a seat mate made it very easy! So I spread out just enough in case someone would get on – however I must have a guardian angel sitting next to me because I had my own seat the entire ride!

It was wonderful to be able to move around easily and when I woke up at 7am, we were 45 minutes from Atlanta. We were early! Which was great as it took about an hour to get our luggage. However, as we all know everything happens for a reason – while many of the passengers stood around the baggage area waiting for news about our luggage. I went and took a seat next a Mom late 40/early 50) & her daughter (early 20). They were a black family from NJ who had moved to Charlotte, NC to look for work. However, they found Charlotte, not friendly, too many finance people and not very inspiring so six months ago, they moved to Atlanta. They were much happier here. The daughter mentioned that she was trying to sell t-shirts, so I told her about CafePress and showed her my MPL bag – then the conversation really began. (if you want your own MPL Bag- visit my Cafe Press Shop!)

It was so wonderful sharing a conversation about their own experiences with being positive around not so positive people, believing in the Law of Attraction – both of them really understood what I am doing by traveling. I gave the daughter my email & # – inviting her to be spontaneous and call me! Chatting with them, made the wait to get our luggage go a little quicker and after we got our luggage, we gave each other hugs!

I wonder if she will call me – it’s a big risk to call a complete stranger. However, this is what I’m going to be doing – already made two calls to people I don’t know to see if they would be open to meeting with me. Both responded positively! I need to remind myself that I am only calling people based on their interest in art/spirituality and if I were to receive a random call from someone, I’d be very curious to meet them.

We attract what we put out there – this is the practice that I’m using in my present life.

We can only receive what we ask for – so I must ask!

In addition to a financial donation here are other ways to help me on my tour:
1/ Travel with me! Especially if you have a car/van!!
2/Introduce me to people who can offer me a place to sleep
3/Offer suggestions of who to meet, where to go
4/Send encouragement!

Again, I couldn’t do this with out all of the amazing encouragement that I’ve been receiving since I first started talking about traveling! I’m very grateful for receiving $200 last Sunday and I would love to be able make this number grow to $2000!

Trickydame’s New Adventure

Every year as the leaves start to bud and the robins begin to sing … I get all excited to celebrate my birthday! I love being an Aries! I love that I have the opportunity to begin another new year in my life as the world wakens up from a long winter.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve made many major life transitions around my birthday and this year is no exception! On Monday, April 12, I’m taking the train to Atlanta, GA. This is a place I never thought I’d be going to 16 yrs ago when I first came to New York City – just goes to show how “your thoughts’ aren’t the only part of you that “guides you”!!

I’m choosing Atlanta as my first stop in the MPL-USA Art Tour for a few reasons:
1. it begins with A and I like that!
2. its warm there
3. the train goes there easily
4. Paula has friends there that I can connect with
5. I HAVE A FRIEND THERE! My friend Beth who has always been an amazing supportive friend with my art! I can’t wait to hang out with her again and her SON!!!

There is also a part of my soul that is guiding me there … so I’m going to listen to this. Afterall, this tour is about continuing my spiritual quest that I began in July 2001. This is quest that I’m sure to be on for the rest of my life … and right now the journey is leading me to PHYSICALLY TRAVEL!

The MPL-USA Art Tour is a work in progress – just like me! There are a few things I intend to do while I’m traveling as well as be open to whatever appears to me — I am excited to use the laws of “ART OF ALLOWING” & “LAW OF ATTRACTION” to take care of me.

I trust in my divine wisdom to guide me along my journey. I easily ask for help and receive all that I need effortlessly.

I am just as excited to SHARE positive energy via my Magic Passion Love ideas & art projects!
I look forward to meeting other cool people and experiencing their own ideas of living spiritually!

So off I go … along the way, I will meet others who will co-host Manifesting Circles with their friends, I will create Mass Manifesting Mobiles in public spaces and engage in creative conversations with people using the MPL Oracle Art cards! (see photos below!!)

To see the photos that INSPIRED THIS PHOTO PROJECT- visit my FLICKR! page! These photos were taken my Lauren Lavitt.

If you want to follow the MPL-USA Art Tour – I will be sending updates via FACEBOOKTWITTERYOUTUBE

If anyone is interested at any point in joining me on this journey – let’s talk!

IF YOU KNOW ANYONE in the following areas (ATLANTA*TAMPA*SAVANNAH*ORLANDO*NEW ORLEANS) Please email me their info! Would love to meet them!

This tour is also an opportunity for my art work to become my sole source of income – I truly believe that we all have the ability and right to earn money on our own terms and want to encourage & support YOU. Let’s find ways we can create financial abundance thru our Magic Passion Love ENERGY- it’s in all of us!! :

I appreciate any support you can offer me – financial, spiritual or physical support!!

New Moon Thought … and Trickydame Art

January 15, 2010 This New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is to help us learn more about our selves and what we want out of life. Developing our own personal faith will help to sustain us while we are evolving and becoming the person we wish to be. It will enable us to maintain important personal values while eliminating worn out beliefs that hinder our growth.

Know what’s really exhausting? STRUGGLE — The fucking Struggle!

LIVE YOUR LIFE JUST AS IT FEELS FIT TO YOUR VALUES!
without judgment on of the obstacles – challenges – choices – vanity – feelings that may occur in your life.

SERIOUSLY… LIVE MY LIFE! That’s all I have to do… and anything that I want…ask for it and do what I need to do to RECEIVE It.. which first just means to ASK!

SO—- LIVE LIFE! Painting and Making Art – – This really is my DREAM – FUCK!!

I easily afford this lifestyle! Creating my ideal life is my work/my job and It is possible to create it on my own terms! I enjoy my life more and more every day – YEAH!!!
