Fear and logic were leading my life. My soul and intuition were a distant whisper. Intellect, reason, my left brain, had been in the driver’s seat for years and the results were not good. I was not finding that illusive happiness and sense of purpose we all seek. So I made a pledge not to make any major decisions until I was unified. And I set about listening, watching, and waiting for my soul to speak.
During this time of introspection I allowed myself to think and dream and imagine. Once I began to imagine what could be, instead of focusing on what ‘should’ or ‘had to’ be, or more often, what was “impossible”, I began to envision myself doing something that brought me joy and was driven by passion and creativity.
In January 2017 I had a dream that called me to reignite my artistic self. It showed me art was a pathway to knowing and healing myself, and creating my future. After 20 years in graphic design I had found my passion and I decided to let it lead the way. Creativity rushed in, filling me with inspiration. I simultaneously discovered my deep desire to help others find their passion, and to create in community. The desire to create this thing was immense, almost overwhelming. And I knew that creating it, bringing it into being, would take a power and strength I had not ever tapped into before. The intensity of my desire was powerful and painful at once. It often brought me to tears. I recall talking with family and friends about it. “Well” they said, with the kindest of intentions, “even if it doesn’t work out, you will always have your art.”
But the thought of it NOT coming into being was more painful than anything I could imagine. This feeling, this desire, was here and I never ever wanted to let it go.
In order to help make it real, make it happen, I needed to call in some powerful energy. An energy that would make me unstoppable, would push me through all barriers I encountered along the way. And what better energy to help me with this than the elephant? And not just any elephant, I knew this had to be a BIG elelphant. As big as my dream!
So “Unstoppable” was born, a near 7′ quilted elephant. You can read all about how it came into being here.
So, over the course of 2017 my new business, my soul path, came into clearer and clearer focus. In July the universe gave me another nudge, taking my main graphic design client from me. I realized it was time to get my butt in gear and get out there! My first official appearance in public was at the Brunswick Outdoor Art Festival on August 19th, 2017.
Soul Path Art was born.
My mission, to help you go boldly where only you can go! To dive into your inner self, to connect completely with your soul’s wisdom and guidance, and courageously share your magic with the community and the world.
Because when one of us blooms, when one of us steps into the fullness of our potential, facing the fears, the self-doubts, the limiting beliefs that have weighed us down and stopped us in the past, the effects of this transformation have effects beyond anything you can calculate.
So be brave. Take heart. The journey may seem scary. The path may be unfamiliar. But it is yours. It is unique to you. And only you have the answers. Only you can find the way. Through intention, through dreaming, through imagining, and through creativity you can be the uncover and be the YOU you came here to be!
