Self-Mastery/Mastery – I enjoy doing things as a unique and diverse being in ways that express my personal truth in satisfying ways. I also like seeing this in others particularly in relation to; music, writing, and design. There’s just something about authenticity that makes my heart sing. Honest attraction and satisfaction really get my creative juices flowing.
Self-Love/Love – I love using my head to live with heart, I ‘m deeply inspired by heartfelt people, places, and things that align and harmonize with me, The concept of soul mates and twin flames has been an inspiration for quite a bit of my writing. Enjoying happy couples and music with this theme is another favorite of mine.
Music/Voice – Music has had a huge impact on every facet of my life. I adore subtle guitar harmonics and well orchestrated pieces. I often play dinner music to refresh and reset my mind. The right tone and inflection of voice has a way of getting a point across unlike anything else. I value masterful voices.
Writing/Reading – These days my own writing spurs more creativity than reading does. I mostly read nonfiction now. My passion lies in poetry and writing creative fiction with complex characters. I am looking into opportunities where I can write uplifting, satisfying, creative fiction that inspires and feels good to read/watch. Maybe I’ll write an anthology of poetry. I love words. I received a 2017 Eippy award and a 2018 Silver E-lit award from Expert Insights Publishing for literary excellence for co authoring the #1 international bestseller “Are YOU the Missing Piece?”
Metaphysics/The Esoteric – Whether alone or with others, I am stimulated by the nature of reality; especially personal reality. I’ve been interested in these topics for quite some time. I love thinking in general, but I relish new thought and leading edge perspectives. I find the contemplation and expansion of these concepts fascinating, awe inspiring, and very, very, satisfying. I’ve always known there is more to reality than meets the eye.
Nature – Right now my focus is on flowers and crystals. When interacting with nature, I feel increased pleasant feelings. I feel better emotionally and my general wellbeing is enhanced, for me it’s the ultimate reset. I am also working with the metaphysical properties of these. Studies show that just viewing nature can help your brain function better, and viewing art has been proven to lower cortisol. I’ve combined both of these together as wearable art.

Anime – Ah anime! I am very fond of this type of animation. My first experience of this was with Inuyasha on adult swim in early to mid 2000. I couldn’t believe how the colors popped. Most notably, the sky and earth; since most of the show takes place outdoors, I got to experience the world in colors I only thought existed in anime. I was inspired to recreate these with colored pencils and later digitally. This rekindled my interest in color and design.
Diversity – “Diversity is the most beneficial part of the game” – Abraham Hicks
This is one of my favorite ways to spark genius. I find variety to be the most satisfying part of expanding my creative concepts and feelings of individual freedom. Inspiration can come from almost anything. And with the internet there’s no shortage of diversity these days (laughs). I love things that feel good to me and I love seeing others enjoying things that feel good to them. There truly is something for everybody. Follow your bliss. : )
Appreciation – I appreciate the diversity, even the contrast of it that helps me to define and focus on what I want; and how I want to express myself. When I am appreciating, inspired action comes easily. I appreciate my dedication to self love and self mastery that allows me to fill up my own cup first so that I can give and receive inspiration and appreciation with ease. I appreciate my heart mind and the mystery of All That Is; that expands me into greater and greater places. And most of all I appreciate you for taking the time to read this and be inspired by me, in whatever ways it takes shape for you.
