Today is a day for boldness and humility. To speak here and completely unannounced would declare war on parts of my insecurity. So, bravely, I accept the challenge. Please reach out with any questions and feel free to comment at will. I wanted this to become a space for recovery to talent for all. So what you say will be welcome. And the recovery is that I wanted to say prayers through my art. If you see your piece here, know that I loved it. And if you don't, know I loved it too, but there is only so much I want to post of a good thing. So if I only have a few items to share at a time, I want them to be shown in boldness. Over time I'm sure I would arrange to overwhelm otherwise.
If my aesthetic pleases you, I am open to commissions. I am also sharing my spoken word through an elegant way, in classes. Reach out for more information. Please contact me through email, as I'm not always looking on here.
Just in case you don't reach me, try through the psychic realm. I'll be sitting, cozy, drinking tea and conjuring more peace to share.
Opening up to see the light.
Dear ones, this will have been my first blog post of many. I hope it suits you well to know that, at this time, I am in Kitsilano, Vancouver. I am beginning again. I will be sending out a newsletter often, so if you had signed up for Alana the tattoo artist, know now that it is remaining, but also alongside Alana the channel.
I will also say that, for some time, I have been procrastinating my blog till now! So come one come all and feel what I have been privileged to have learned. It is continual as well, so check in often for new content.
Here is what I will describe for day 1. Business as usual, I was up before the sun came up, channeling and singing into what is to come.
My vision is this. A set of agreements to myself that I will,
1) Speak up
2) Say it with heart
3) Invite others to comment as well
4) Conclude that there will be, no conclusion to these never ending tides.
From there, I begin.
Today is not only the first day of my blog, but also the first day I will publish it. No surprise to me, I have no idea how this will be done. I guess I'm about to see.
Thank you to the spirit realm, and guides Saint Francis Assisi for my deep lesson today in the tricks the minds can play when the heart isn't watching.
The heart is not always watching, you see. But it is always aware of something. Today my heart wanted me to play deeper, challenge softer. And speak more. Today is the day I start.
And since I have already begun much before this new website has, there will be a lot to unfold.
For now I leave you with this prayer.
Have heart, dear traveller, that you are the one you need the most. Never regret the past, for it has brought you the present, and will assist in your future. Never deny your short comings, for they may be the path toward your rareness. Your uniqueness is always a gift, no matter how brave you have yet to be.
In Light, yours,
St. Francis Assisi
