Still the mind, let the inner creator run free!

This has been quite a learning experience to even get this far, and part of why I’m doing it is to inspire others to do the same. I had grown up with the mistaken idea that being an artist wasn’t a viable means to support myself in responsible adulthood. About four years ago I started a regular meditation practice, which included such teachings as listening to intuition and opening the heart. I learned that once the mind is still, and the heart is free from judgement, it is possible to hear the voice of a higher consciousness calling you to your true power. This voice told me that I needed to be a creator, and to make things with my hands.

My inner voice told me that I needed to work with fire, and to shape metal. It told me it was ok to be obsessed with gemstones! I took a few classes on designing metal jewelry, and started setting up shop in my apartment. I talked to a few people who had done a similar thing. Each experience was a step in a new direction. It was scary to keep going into the unknown. I didn’t want to be judged, I didn’t want to be wrong, and I didn’t want to fail. I still don’t. I am taking the risk to be seen, and I know I am going in the right direction.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.
