Operation Open Heart

The process of living in the heart center.

A dedicated practice of mine for over a year.

As the Moon came in conjunction with my Moon at 23 degrees Leo, both cusping the Ascendant, I sat in the hot seat during a meditation.

Charged with channelling the energies for the group to focus.

Leo rules the Heart.

Lion Hearted! RAWR!! 

With my natal moon hiding in the 12th house, even as a little Leo, I can be rather shy.  So as it became my turn to speak, Self Acceptance, is the topic chosen & spoken.

However, my Heart spoke out for me & called in its own energy. As we went into meditation over 25 people listened to, heard from, and felt their own hearts.

Holy cow!!

Having been in attendance with this circle for over 5 years, I can attest with certainty that this was the Heart’s premiere.

Which shined a bright light on my Mission in Life:

Speak from the Heart.

A word, on Self Acceptance

Recently introduced to this wonder, Macklemore.

I am highly in favor of. Tithing to & ready to promote anyone who is speaking on the matter of self-acceptance. Because this is the medicine I need more than any other.

To simply remember that: I Am Enough.  

Because I can’t change. Even if I tried.

Even if I wanted to..

& I am fucking awesome…

Returning to Center


I used to live a double life. Which really isn’t as exciting as it sounds. More stressful really.

What was happening in actuality was that I was unhappy with the choices I had made. So, in order to express my pain clearly I made the executive decision to create a pen named space where I was able to write freely without having to worry about anyone who knew me reading.

Until the fateful day when the one person I had hoped to hide from found my writings and read them all. Betrayal isn’t even a word to be applied here. Because I was the one all along not living in Truth.

My hope is that these days are behind me now. That it is no longer necessary for me to hide my Self from all of you.

It was only ever my own mind that convinced me to.

Right now, I work primarily as a model. A muse really for artists in need of inspiration. Sometimes this requires me to be nude. While posing portrait the other day I decided that it was time to solidify. Be me. Just me. And, to make no apology.

I feel that there have been many teaser introductions in recent past of things to come. Finally, now I have reached a healthy level of Self Acceptance to do my work without worry.

So, get ready. Because now I am officially ready to share myself with you!!
