I am willing to be frank on my own website. If you will have chosen to look here, then you might understand that I once was not willing to say very much, which as of late has exploded to becoming an author, a poet and a channel. So, it turns out I was finding a voice. The voice. My voice. How happy and relaxing. Well, it also turns out that a lot of my life now is lead by my inner realm, my peace within, my spiritual guidance. Therefore I will be blessed when I move through my pain and into some virtue. The virtue of today will be my talent to draw. To draw my inner world as a virtue, and say it without confliction, and boldly at that. I find that bold holds, as it does with tattoos. Right? So if I say something powerful, will you read it the way I meant it? How gentle can love be when it's demanding attention? Love isn't always gentle when someone needs to be rescued, or a slave to society needs more money but isn't willing to slave. So how will I achieve my goal toward financial freedom and share it? Well, I hope to sell my poetry. I believe the rights to it are ongoing.
I shall like to sell my art, my custom tattoos again, in time. I want to do it all but without the burnout this time. That was rough. I didn't fare well working in a world where burn out is normal. So I won't do that. Spiritual guidance will call to some better idea, that I'm not used to. That I don't understand, so I trust and go for it. As I write this post I will something toward me using talent in return. Shouting proudly from the mountain tops, I want to live with my sister Jenna in Nanaimo a while, and travel to Vancouver to work alongside the Rainfire team. It is the nicest part of life, living with a sibling when you're old enough to appreciate it. And we have so much life to go. We weren't close until recently, a 16 year age gap left a large part of our lives in separation. For no reason other than my rambling ways and her youth. I would love to say we were close but, now that we are back together in our adulthood, well it didn't seem to skip a beat. So, I want to live there and work online as an oracle, and with the wind in my sails, work once monthly at Rainfire. This will allow for the timeline of rest and art. As if art wasn't there already, but I mean it. I paint from the place I channel. I draw from there too, and I need space for that. No more healing, just free to live again. This is one piece I would love to dedicate to the spirit of family. The choice would be to tattoo it in Vancouver. April would be best. On the wings of doves, carry them to me, the ones with hearts that align to truth. From there let's dance with legacy. One more thing to add, I want to speak to you in a gift beforehand if you choose this piece in Vancouver. I will add in a commission to my work as a healer and give you a free online session. This can be a phone call or skype and will help heal any wounds you might be tending to, emotionally, spiritually, or within art. Become a written document to your own inner truth and from there we stay in the sidelines, working toward a happier future and blessing the ground around us as we walk free. Triumph and sanity can go hand in hand if we rest and work when it's right. I'm only just learning that so, don't quote me yet, but I'll tell you how it goes.
Be well, dear hearts, it's a long journey home.
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
