December’s Special is inspired by all of the amazing animal spirit guides that have been gracing my life in such powerful and synchronous ways with their medicine. And I know how much they are impacting so many others, as I hear your stories, read your posts, and enjoy your personal shares.
Since I am about to focus on two custom painting commissions come Monday that will be a continuation of one of my most cherished series – Universal ARKitecture – I’m feeling an extra rush of that creative visionary energy that I’m excited to channel through. It’s been a while since I’ve painted, as you know, due to feeling called to channel my creativity in other ways. Yet, I accepted a few commissions that felt aligned and finally am having the time to immerse in them, which will be a welcome shift to close out the year with. I know my bunny Joy is excited, as she’s always been my little painting partner

I have one of them hanging in my office for now and I have to share that the first night I hung it, I came to experience what a powerful portal it was – they are.
The energy completely shifted in my office and after falling asleep, I woke in the middle of the night to look across the room and through the hall to my office only to find that elves, faeries, gnomes, you name it… were all climbing out from the painting and running around my office and in the hall! Some more very interesting and magickal experiences continued.
I’m not sure how many people realize how intentfully created, sacredly and energetically imbued, channeled, art is alive and embodies windows into other realities that actually are real and accessible. Not to mention can be utilized as meditational tools and to help vibrationally shift frequencies.
More Christmas Gift Ideas:

So when a dear friend of mine posted about his power animal he was united with from entering into this Realm and how synchronous and aligned it was for him, I was joyously led to let my heart explore this for myself.
Some may call it coincidence, luck of the draw, or random, but having seen at least a dozen people do this (including those closest and dear) and heard how their animal that showed up was absolutely perfect for them and what they are focused on and needing, and trying it myself and experiencing the same, I’d say there’s more to this than simple randomness. But that’s just me.
Intention is powerful and when we are clear in our hearts, the reflection of that will be mirrored. You can use this link below at any time in your life when you are interested in seeing what animal’s guidance and message would be most supportive for you at this time, but it feels extra potent right now on the Eve of the New Moon and soon-to-be New Year of the Horse, to do a little fun check in on which animal will be your guide for this new energy you are embarking upon.
(Note: Try to do this just once. Your mind may want to test this and keep retrying until you get a different result, but trust that the first time is the charm and what you receive is perfect.)
It’s just like pulling a Tarot card or receiving a Fortune Cookie message.
I, personally, happen to love working with Animal Spirit Guides and it is something that comes through all the time when I work with clients doing Reiki sessions. And of course you know animals are most enjoyable for me to channel through my paintings, which is why I created the series – Universal ARKitecture – a series of Power Animal Spirit Paintings.
My own Power Animal that met me in the Enchanted Forest, when I embarked on the journey invite is the Eagle. This was not surprising to me in the least, as the winged ones have been prevalent in my life SO very much. I wondered if they would show up in doing this and in fact they did and it aligns with what I’ve been receiving about my personal year.
This was Eagle’s message for me:
Greatness ~ Leadership ~ Independence
A potent symbol of true greatness, the eagle brings many gifts into your life.
Eagle energy will flood you with courage, a free spirit and independence that will take you beyond the limits of your life to date. Your own greatness will begin to emerge as you welcome eagle power into your life and feel it surging within you.
The eagle lives in the tall trees and high cliffs and soars above life with majesty, blessed with extremely keen eyesight. You will find that you are now able to stay above the fray and still know exactly what is going on and when to dip down and utilize your new-found powers of leadership. Be true to your beliefs; lead and others will follow, for you are the eagle.
So now it’s your turn! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
If you want a fun, magickal, and yet very uncanny experience, while getting the chance to meet your friend and guide in the mystical Faery Realm, you might enjoy flying, walking, skipping, leaping, swimming, or dancing your way with sacred intention, into the Enchanted Forest:
And if you DO journey into the Enchanted Forest, I’d love to hear what Animal Spirit Guide was awaiting you. Please leave a short note in the comments with the friend that met you there.
Magickal blessings to you!!
I am excited and honored to have one of my pieces be a part of the upcoming Eco Art Exhibition, “SustainAbility,” at Art 4 All People’s AY Fine Art Gallery in Malibu. The piece to be shown is one of my Universal ARKitecture paintings, Temple of the Sacred Heart, was accepted into this 45 day exhibition and will be featured along with other artists’ creative expressions, all in the theme of SustainAbility.
Art 4 All People shares:
“SustainAbility is an Environmental Art exhibition that features artists who are exploring the pivotal need for stewardship, awareness and advocacy for our ailing Mother Earth. Such eco-artist-warriors, with their individual visions, are shining a powerful light on how can we individually create sustainability through our own actions. These artists inspire us though their transformative art and innovation, and they offer us a glimpse into new ways of being.
The 56-day exhibition will give the audience the abilities, inspiration, insights and tools to create their own sustainable way. During the Sustain Ability exhibition Art 4 All People will be offering unique workshops, lectures, beach cleanups and happenings.”
If you recall, Universal ARKitecture is a series of what I call sacred vessel, animal spirit paintings that hold antidotes for a new “ARKitectural” plan and code of life for creating the New Earth experience. It features endangered and “threatened” species that hold shamanic messages of wisdom teachings to empower us into a new way of being with ourselves, each other, and all of creation, along with bringing awareness to these animals and how to care for Mother Earth and the environment through conscious and compassionate change.
Temple of the Sacred Heart conveys the tender divinity shared between mother and child endangered Asian Elephants (and cosmic creatures) representing strength, honor, stability, patience, loyalty, good luck, fortune, longevity, ancient wisdom, advanced sensitivity, social connection, personal responsibility, determination, confidence, reliability, power, royalty, removal of obstacles, protection…

Maybe it’s all that beautiful ocean energy and nature I’ve been immersed in lately, the retreat in Bimini, the unlimited Source-well of creativity and inspiration I feel connected to evermore so, or simply “being in the flow,” but another huge creative wave has arrived and I”m ready to surf it through what ever waters, and to what ever shore, it takes me. 🙂 Right now, I’m feeling a lot of high-vibed flow with all this creative energy and magickal experiences, an invigorating hike today, and some new Andara crystal friends sitting on my desk – woo! Yes I am loving this energy. Are you?
This year seems to be a supportive year for “seeing” the beauty in the miracles of life around us and sharing beauty with the world through our individual gifts. It’s a wonderful time for cultivating creative new endeavors, being the Michelangelo of your own life, and diving deep into the inspirational abyss.
I have SO been enjoying seeing all the new creations that others are manifesting lately and all the new leaps everyone is taking. I LOVE it! There is SO MUCH talent out there and it’s so amazing to me to see people come into realizing that about themselves and what they have to offer the world. “Rocking it” is far from doing you all justice to say. The energy abound is simply stunning and it only gets better.
Just remember to create balance, nurture and recharge yourself, be gentle, remember to add “flow with grace” when asking for things, and love, without judgment, every minute and every part of your magnificence in creation.
To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. ~Osho
I have learned to flow with where I’m guided in any given moment, rather than dictate or create ideas of what that should look like. In doing this, I find stress removed, balance in my life, divine timing unfolding, and optimal ingredients for fulfilling outcomes on all levels. My intuition and heart are my guidance. My trust, belief, imagination, passion, and connection are my wings to get there.
The awesome thing is….you can never use up all of your creative juices! It’s one of the most amazingly abundant sources of energy that constantly recreates and reinvigorates itself and just gets better the more you courageously tap into your imagination and dreams and release all judgment and fear. The challenge is to keep evolving into greater depths of exploration in order to bring forth ever-new expressions. Nothing is done. There is always more to have fun with!
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. ~Maya Angelou
As you know, painting had taken a small hiatus at the end of last year for me, as I was working on other projects and preparations for Bimini. But I heard the message to wait until I return, as I would receive answer to what to create next, when I do, and where I would be led. For me, this is not unusual, as many times I have been guided to halt things until returning from sacred journeys, since the transformative energy changes the course of things and brings in new inspiration and messages – sometimes entirely new directions and life evolutions.
I have found that what is important to get done will be revealed and WILL get done and the rest will just happen as it needs to, or isn’t important to do in the first place. So by not rushing into it, it may actually end up falling away. Or, it comes back with more focused direction that is very clear and more aligned, by letting it percolate.
But, of course the innate artist within is never gone, even if on hiatus. She just takes takes the passenger seat for the time she needs to take everything in, recharge, reinvigorate, and learn to be a powerful presence in new ways. And with that pause, she is then ready again to bring forth the fruits of her labor.
Needless to say, alongside some of the other projects, events, and retreats for this year I’m working on, a sweep of creative excitement is abound. I am also in the middle of another cleaning-out phase and that also has great energy-shifting potentials!
I’ve been really enjoying the sacred tattoo design vibes coming in right now. The energy of the latest pieces are really mirroring the collective, as always, and I’m about to embark on a new round of designs that I’m excited to see what will be unveiled in the process. It’s always a welcome mystery and journey I feel deeply honored to walk with each client. ❤
Yesterday, I found a coupon and was off to the store purchasing a bunch of canvases for this artistic surge explosion. I now have 13! canvases awaiting me. YAY! I love choosing canvases and letting them speak to me, as I feel the essence already trickle through their unique energy of what they want created on them. Four of these canvases will be to complete my Universal ARKitecture series and the other 9 are for new creative visions I’ve received. FUN!
Yes, you heard right. Only 4 more pieces left in the Universal ARKitecture series. This is one of the several shifts and messages I received from the Bimini trip. Originally, I felt there would be 33, but received there will only be 12 now and that likely they may become a calendar upon completion. As always, the conclusion remains to be seen, but 12 is the new number and 4 more are still to come. I’ve actually already received the 4 animals ahead this time as well, which is an interesting twist, as before they only came when I was about ready to paint. So this is very cool to already know and now just to let them emerge forth in their sequence.
The 4 will share owl, harp seal, bighorn sheep, and orangutan wisdom. I’m so excited, as they each have perfect messages for the now I feel. Looking forward to what they each have to reveal to me and the depths they will take me too.
An artist paints, dances, draws, writes, designs, or acts at the expanding edge of consciousness. We press into the unknown rather than the known. This makes life lovely and lively. ~Julia Cameron

To refresh your memory on the focus of these paintings, here is some information on the series:
Universal ARKitecture shares messages spoken through the many voices of the animal spirits of the Earth, focusing on many of the endangered and threatened species, uniting us through a Universal language of the heart. These sacred vessel animal spirit paintings hold antidotes for a new “ARKitecural” plan and code of life for creating the New Earth experience. An “ark” by definition and historical understanding was a vessel built by Noah to house and keep safe his family and pairs of every animal of the Earth. It is also known as a sacred chest where the ancient Hebrews kept the two tablets containing the Ten Commandments. In either form, it is seen as a sacred and protective structure that contained the promise of a new life where a new architectural system of life codes would be embraced and instituted to start anew. Shamanic practice honors the wisdom and power in all things on Earth, believing that everything has something to teach. These power animals act as guides to share their wisdom on how we can better cultivate awareness towards living consciously. Compassion demonstrated in care of these precious beings, as well as understanding their connection to us, helps nurture the Earth collective at large.
Every day is an opportunity to be creative – the canvas is your mind, the brushes and colours are your thoughts and feelings, the panorama is your story, the complete picture is a work of art called, ‘my life’. Be careful what you put on the canvas of your mind today – it matters. ~Innerspace
The remaining 9 canvases, as mentioned, are for a new wave of smaller, yet extremely powerful, energy creations that I will be starting shortly and in partnership with some of my favorite things. 😉 A new adventure awaits, as well as a deeper journey into the courageous heart of expression! I am very excited about these and have yet to know how they will come to be fully, but I trust the “how” follows my embracing the “Yes, I’m in!” I sense these will be a synergistic partnership highlighting a special connection shared, where subject becomes guide and I am its loyal servant. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog on these new creations channeling through. Exciting!
A lot of these new creations will be featured in the upcoming April 11th RAW: Los Angeles Presents Marvel art showcase event. This will be such a fun night of indie artists from so many genres coming together in community sharing of their gifts. If you’re in the area, I really hope you can join us at the Belasco Theater, anytime from 6 – 10pm, and if not please share your appreciation for the arts with a ticket purchase, as the proceeds go to supporting the indie artists.

I’m about to head off this weekend for a week in Reno and Lake Tahoe (visiting one of my absolute favorite spots on the globe, the family, and celebrating, as well as pre-celebrating three of our birthdays that are all close to each other), which I know will prove to be very inspiring and revitalizing for me to be in the magickal energies of the lake and to have fun in the beautiful alpine high altitudes I so thrive in. With the convenience of driving, rather than flying, this enables me to bring a few things along with me to explore my creative inspirations while there, including painting, reading, writing, and even making a couple of jewelry pieces for myself that I felt inspired to create from some of my natural treasures discovered. No, this doesn’t mean I will be taking up making jewelry myself, but I AM going to have fun creating these shaman pieces I am guided to make.
I’m very much in the creative flow and I LOVE it! The deeper I go, the more possibilities are available. I have always believed all things are possible and will never accept anything less.
What do you desire to create anew today? Perhaps the reinvention into a courageous heart could be the most valuable creation to begin with.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations. ~Gerald G. Jampolsky
I’ve been quite immersed in projects, so my new series was on hold for a couple of weeks (boo), but percolating in the background nonetheless. I was so happy to be “back in the saddle” again (Laura Bruno will get a giggle out of that) and flowing the creative channeling once again.
As I’ve shared, I am in process of creating a 33 painting new series called Universal ARKitecture, and this painting comes to us at #4 and is called, “The Child In Us.” It actually didn’t start out to be this painting, as I got ahead of myself and had started creating #5, always being a few steps ahead and anxious about that one (I only now realized the synchronous unfolding of how the painting that would have been #4 is now #5, my favorite and meaningful number, which perfectly aligns with what will be in that painting, as you’ll come to see) 🙂
However, it was miss Joy, my sweet lop-eared bunny companion who set mom straight! Every time I was working on the painting, or trying to, as it was challenging energetically, she kept trying to bite it and was running off with my paint brushes and kept trying to get my attention. Finally I realized that the energy of this canvas, the first step in order to get to the next painting, and the timing was off. And once I consciously received the light bulb click, embraced this message, and allowed the animal spirit that was trying to get through come in, everything started to flow and magic took place. The energy of the next painting was also much larger and could not be contained in this canvas (24″ x 24″), needing a 48″ x 48″ instead, which the next one will be. The energy of squeezing a big energy into something too small for it was painful! And once I embraced the realization everything flowed peacefully.
Every one of these new paintings becomes my new favorite, so this is no exception. I am so in love with this tender little amazing porcupine! I just want to squeeze him with a giant hug!
For now, I’ve just taken a quick photograph to share, but today I’m actually having the paintings so far that I’ve completed, photographed professionally, so I will be able to share higher resolution and higher quality images shortly. All of these paintings are available and will be posted shortly on my website here: Universal ARKitecture. If interested in this one, or any you have seen me post so far, you can contact me at email@example.com. Prints will be available as well once I get good high res photos going.
Each of these paintings in the series conveys an animal spirit wisdom, which I am capturing along with the essence of the specific animal spirit that channels through to me. They are all endangered species as well, bringing conscious awareness to our animal friends and a return to natural harmony on Earth.
Porcupine wisdom includes:
Trust in Spirit
Renewed sense of wonder
Creating your own path
Protection of boundaries
Defense when threatened
Allowing others their path
