“As an Artist I find that the creative force demands a lot. The more I seek my desire to create the more I find myself being asked to hold myself in embodied integrity, the more I allow the creative force to flow through me unrestricted, the more it releases all sorts of magic and aligns me more with the life I truly wish to be living in all its different expressions.“
