This has been a year of great Discovery of things inside of me. I have discovered my worth, value, deservingness. These aren’t states I’ve earned, they have always been there waiting for me to open my heart and mind to their truth and presence. Through the gifts of Zentangle, Heartwork Journaling and channeling, I have opened my heart to the beauty and simplicity of what is and allowed myself to become. Allowing is a process. A process of noticing, accepting, releasing expectation, doubt, fear, and worry. Through the process of allowing, I have learned to trust that the unknown is not a fiend waiting to rob me of my security and joy, but a beautiful present to be acknowledged, savored, and held in gratitude. I have realized that a great, deep well of courage resides inside of me and this well never runs dry. I have accepted that I am enough. I am a fallible, imperfect human being and I am enough. I have acknowledged that my perfection is not required, and never has been. I am because I am. A being of pure light in human form remembering from whence I came and where I will return. Life is too short to wait for perfect, a state that will never come into being. This moment is here now. I am here now. This journey of discovery continues and I am curious to find out what the next moment holds.
About the Art
Origami: Years ago one of my Zentangle students gifted me with three origami stars created with black and white decorated paper and said, “Why don’t you try this?” I took her up on her suggestion. That moment lead to this one. Every origami piece you see in the Portfolio photos began with pen and ink with pencil shading on a 3.5” x 3.5” square paper tile. I scanned each piece of Zentangle artwork, duplicated and rotated it using simple graphic design, printed it and folded it to create the pieces you see in this show. Each origami star / flower required 3, 5, or 7 pieces of identically patterned paper. I began folding paper on August 2 and ended with 249 stars and flowers. My origami stars are available for sale at The Dovetail Café & Marketplace at the Duluth Folk School, Master Framing Gallery on London Road, and by request. Please contact me at email@example.com to commission origami stars and flowers to decorate your home or gift to loved ones.
A large part of my transformation this year is a result of the self-coaching practices I’ve learned through Heartwork Journaling with my mentor Maritza Parra. I enrolled in her introductory course Doodle Your Emotions in May 2021 and instantly recognized the value in her approach. Heartwork Journaling is a method for uncovering latent thoughts that create emotions, drive actions, and lead to results. Using simple creativity with the mindset of a divine scientist, it is possible to discover those hidden thoughts and change them to create more desirable results. My doodle avatar appears in the 5” x 7” watercolor pieces highlighting ways in which I have learned to authentically show up in the world during this past year. Heartwork Journaling Certification has lead me to become an intuitive coach. It is my complete joy to share these simple, life changing tools with others.
In August 2021, I took an online course called The Art of Channeling hosted by Infinite Possibilities trainer Mike Dooley and guest Sara Landon who channels the wisdom of The Council. I took the class because it piqued my interest, but I quickly realized that I had been channeling information for years. According to Helane Wahbeh, Director of Research, Institute of Noetic Sciences, in her book The Science of Channeling, “Channeling is the process of revealing information and energy not limited by our conventional notions of space and time that can appear receptive or expressive.” Every person is a channel. Becoming a conscious channel has allowed me to access deeper levels of understanding and awareness than when reasoning solely with my human brain. It has been a life altering, affirming, and fascinating process for which I am eternally grateful. The three 10” x 13” watercolor pieces, Choice, Your Work, and Shine Bright are what I call Spiritual Snippets. Snippets of longer pieces of channeled information from my Guides known to me as “Your Team of Light” (YTL). The typed piece entitled Universal Love is a full channel given to me on August 22, 2022 (see below). Each of these are examples of the higher wisdom available to every person.

Universal Love is the only love you need. It is the love – big “L” Love that lives within your heart and all hearts. Your soul is Universal Love and yet as humans, small l love makes up most of your experience. It is grand, for sure, but it cannot replace Universal Love. The Love every human yearns to feel for it is the illusion of separation from that Source of Love which brings the heart to yearn and the mind to search in human form. The illusion is such that you, most of you, live an entire lifetime failing to realize that Universal Love fills your heart and lives within you such that there is no separation. No gap. It is only understanding that is missing. A slight shift of perspective is what is needed to truly see the truth of who and what you are.
Allow. Open and allow, our love.
Release what you know, all of what you know and believe in favor of not knowing for it is in the not knowing that new thoughts, ideas, concepts, and perspectives are realized. Allow the chasm of unknowing to engulf and surround you. Allow the uncertainty of it to become like a soothing balm of opportunity, an exciting game of possibility for only when all knowledge falls away and ideas, beliefs, and facts formerly grasped are released that never-before thoughts arise within and around you waiting to be planted in the fertile soil of your soul presence. Divine flowers of understanding shifting perspectives of reality and choice, allowing new neural pathways to be formed and connecting previously unknown-to-you states of beingness.
It is a gorgeous unfolding in which you are a pivotal part for every part, every thread, every molecule of a tapestry is pivotal lest the whole disintegrate and fall to its once individual pieces. You are an integral part of that whole, that tapestry – the All, whether you are consciously aware or not it does not matter for the truth of what you are remains. It is only your perception that shifts and changes – not the reality of the Universal self.
Your perception creates your conditioned self and it is so much more palatable to walk in form holding a grander perspective than most humans embody, so release. Release what you know, shift your desire to know to a space of not knowing. Unlearn all you’ve been taught and seek new ways of thinking, being, and absorbing energy and light for you are the light and the light shifts and weaves around and through you. Your conscious awareness of this truth is – of course – never necessary – but oh so delightful to embody while in form as it makes your experience so much more palatable and enriches your sense of self and your experience of the All.
Allow. Allow. Allow. Glow from within your beautiful and perfect heart.
We love you eternally and forever as the one that you are. Always in all ways.
Your Team of Light
