ANNOUNCEMENT & REMEMBRANCE: 

I am the activator of your creative expression.

I am the creator of portals for your higher consciousness.

I am the expression for the connection of spirituality and art.

With BEAUTIFUL art that you resonate with on a sublime spiritual level

To elevate your consciousness to your next level of YOU.

To upgrade your body, mind, heart & soul to higher levels of consciousness 

To transport you through time, energy, dimensions, perspectives, alchemy and magic to your higher self and God.

To have active participants in your energetic performance and upgrades - in works of art

To be the anchor & portal for your self expression in your spaces & life

Calling all Muses ready to turn your home into a temple.

A temple of art, beauty & higher consciousness

Calling all Muses who want portals to usher in the connection & flow of the evolution of your consciousness

Calling all for whom adorning your home & heart with beauty is a spiritual practice to connect with your creativity

Have the magic of the looking glass in your home - to upgrade and access your creative genius, your divine nature & your soul calling.

Calling those who want to marry your creative genius with your spiritual insight

Calling all who are ready to turn your lives (& spaces) into spiritual works of art. Into living portals to activating your spirituality and higher self.

And also calling those whose work is helping curate & design temples for clients who would LOVE a living relationship with art in their homes - commission spiritual portals of activating consciousness, that are also works of art!

Don’t you love a chaotic clarity download of insight and intuitive understanding to start your weekend?

I am still an artist.

A leader. A mentor. A creativity catalyst. A Muse Mama.

But I’m learning & realising & trying to embrace that these words aren’t quite enough, aren’t quite clear, aren’t quite the next level for me to stretch ALL of what I offer in my life’s work.

So I’m diving deep to find the words, the vision, the articulation of it all.

And calling in the people this is a HELL YES!

Here’s to the wild ride! Thank you for flowing with me!

Your desires determine your disciplines

🌟Your desires determine your disciplines🌟
When you’re feeling frustrated at your lack of DOING OF THE THING...

when maybe, you just need to know your true desires, discipline & then the identity of who you want to be..

✨You know you’re creative✨
6C00FE25-3D9A-4EB6-951F-528468255691.jpeg

✨You know you’re creative✨
You know you have a thing to bring to life

Not just a thing but like really A THING that has been calling you to be created
or even just to finally bring it to the next level. 

But life tells you otherwise
The world says it’s too hard
You’re not good enough yet
You see all these awesome creatives online, at exhibits, selling their art and you’re SURE they are more amazing then you
You’re too busy
You don’t want your kids, your relationships, your job to suffer

Basically all the things that says you’re not perfect yet so you’re not allowed to DARE to take that thing seriously. 

How did I paint more in the first year of my babies life...while also juggling kinder runs with a preschooler?

How did I write a booklet and run 2 online courses while pregnant & painting for an exhibition?

How does anyone really? Do THE thing while doing all the other things?

I know that it isn’t in saying: I don’t know how she does it! 

And say: if she can maybe I can too

It’s not in saying: I don’t think I can on top of everything else...

And say: I truly want this...how can I work everything else around this?

Don’t dismiss yourself before even asking your amazing creative self HOW YOU are going to do it

Because you are
Because you can
Because if you really truly want it, there IS a way for you to do it. 

🌟Also, don’t do it alone!🌟

I didn’t do all I have done (plus there is so much more I want to do!) by doing it all alone. 

I leaned into my village of family & friends (and got over my baggage around asking for help)

I invested in help around the house (and got over the mum guilt that served nobody)

I invested in coaches and masterminds - and found my community which led to courage to DARE to DREAM. It led to clarity of MY goals and finding MY flavour of doing ALL the things. 
Only because I didn’t rely on my own ‘motivation’ or my feelings. 

As an artist I know I don’t rely on inspiration to strike, but that it will come when I invest the time & energy to show up anyway

It’s why I wanted to give back all my hard earned experience and offer 1:1 mentoring for Muse Mamas

You’re creative. You’re ambitious. You have a next chapter, a next level, A THING to bring into the world. 
And you still want to weave your mamahood & life with your creativity. And your creativity into your relationships and work.
That makes you a Muse Mama

I know that sometimes it was a simple message to my coach to re-center myself when I was drowning in the chaos of my inner critic. 
All I needed was a venting session with my mastermind to clear out what was MY voice and those of other people’s expectations

All I needed was to be connected to the energy and access other Muses. 
Who understood that in order to move forward, we had to find our own flavour AND embrace imperfection. Who understood that sometimes I just needed a reminder I WAS CAPABLE. Despite fear saying otherwise. 

Do you need that community?
Do you desire that connection?
Do you wish to finally DARE to actually DO what you DREAM?
However big, however small. 

Then I want to invite you into my

💖💖 YOU’VE GOT THIS 💖💖
8C733049-271D-4738-87A1-129F67574559.jpeg

💖💖 YOU’VE GOT THIS 💖💖
When the voice says “who are you to think you can do this?!”
You can. You will. You’ve got this
🔥
When that voice is inside your head and knows the right button to push and fears to showcase.
You’re not alone. You’ve got this
🔥
When that voice is outside your head and from those who love you and “just want the best for you”
Say fuck off if you need to. Change the subject if that’s more in alignment. (Sometimes the same tactics works whether the voices are inside or outside your head)
YOUR DREAMS ARE what is best for you. 
You’re a grown ass adult and YOU WILL work it out even when you fail. 
You’ve got this

Summon your inner warrior
Summon your inner sage
Summon your inner mother and father and lovers and soulmate.
Summon your inner stubborn child.
And step forward.
Step up.
Shine that light.

You can. 
You will. 
You’ve got this.
💖
p.s ✍🏻My Deliberate Doodles Online Workshop was created for the part of you that yearned for CONNECTION to that inner creative. 
That inner light that sees & knows YOU’VE GOT THIS

It was created to show you a different way of being more present and MINDFUL with your thoughts and actions.

So you can stay connected to your inner wisdom. 
To finish that project that keeps calling you. 
To feel in more control of your life instead of mindlessly drifting along.
To dare to take that inner dream seriously.

If you need that permission?
⚡️⚡️Here it is!⚡️⚡️

Don’t just silently scroll & lurk & watch in the shadows! It’s one thing to be inspired and click ‘like’ on someone else’s art — it’s another to actually doing your own.

Commit to doing something about it.
Step forward. Step up.
Get that pen on paper!

🙏🏻And don’t do it alone - you are who you surround yourself with.

When you’re surrounded by other creatives — that will keep you connected to your creativity and you’re more likely to actually CREATE!

This Deliberate Doodles online workshop was born to share my process AND ALSO CREATE THE SPACE FOR YOU TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT CALLING.
✍🏻
It's just dressed very simply in black & white, simple pen and paper.
🔥
Don't underestimate the power of that simplicity!

🌟🌟 TEN THINGS THAT INSPIRED ME LAST WEEKEND 🌟🌟
BF78D18F-4E8A-4186-B060-C346E2672E3C 2.jpeg

🌟🌟 TEN THINGS THAT INSPIRED ME LAST WEEKEND 🌟🌟

1) Sunshiney days - the air and sky always feels clearer after a massive storm (Sydney has been raining & last week had the biggest storm)

2) wearing this red jumpsuit reminded me that feeling good in my clothes helps me feel good in my skin which helps my brain see more beauty everywhere else

3) Giant trees at beautiful parks as a gorgeous wedding venue

4) Many moments of quiet - thanks to a kid-free weekend to connect emotional & inspired thoughts.

5) “Bad luck” circumstances that turned out all fine thanks to “good luck”. It’s all in the perspective

6) FaceTiming my girls and hearing their voices talking over each other to tell me all the things

7) The pattern of the terrazzo tile floor at the Queen Victoria Building

8)Reminiscing stories of the time we lived in Sydney for a year

9) The texture & pattern of the airport carpet

10) Dancing all night at a friend’s wedding with the best DJ I’ve witnessed in a long time

✨✨What inspired you this weekend?✨✨

I know that if I expect it, look for it & allow for it AND acknowledge it.

I always find it.

Use all your senses.
Use your heart, mind, body & soul.
Past, present & future.

Gather all the big and little things,
Gather all that strike your curiosity,
that tickles your fancy,
that makes you feel good.

That’s where all the colours of inspiration are waiting for you to gather into your creative palette to play with!

GRATITUDE
53886113_2298106570241821_4590503956983054336_n.jpg

🌟🌟 GRATITUDE 🌟🌟

It’s cliche
It’s oversaid
It’s become so ‘done’ that we ignore it or worse, gloss over it

BUT PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE

Even when I was tired
Even when it was almost 1am and I had been on my feet for 8 hours straight - dehydrated - hungry - exhausted... I still made it a priority to write out a grateful list in my journal

Hands down - it was the EASIEST way for me to tap back into a higher vibe/ energy/ happy juju state. 

Being tired, overwhelmed & too stimulated from so much talking for an introvert - it’s too easy to start seeing the negative, the flaws, the hurdles and pain.
(4 days of being an exhibitor at an art fair is both physically & mentally & emotionally taxing)

Plus technically I had only sold one painting (each day I did) but it would be so easy to be like “I ONLY sold one! 😭” vs “OMG I SOLD ONE! 🥳”

Gratitude is like the muggle way back to that childlike wonder and energy of LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL AND I AM SO BLESSED. 
AND
everything IS WORKING PERFECTLY for ME!

I choose joy while getting hit with rejection (again)

I choose blessings while nursing wounds

I choose dancing & celebration while waiting for results

I choose happiness while embracing all the ugly, messy, chaos, overwhelm

I choose faith while facing the giant gap between me & my dream

I choose trust while navigating the fog

I know it’s simple to say
I know it’s harder to do - that’s why it’s a practice. 
It’s a daily choice, a daily choosing to come back to the space you want to play in.

What do you choose?

💖

Are you embarking on a new creative chapter?
Finally going to unleash your creative expression?
Finally going to go to the next level in your creative work?
Finally start an Instagram account? Write that book? Sell your work for the first time? Exhibit your art for real?

I know from experience that doing it alone is the lonely, painfully hard & long way. 

I wouldn’t change much but I do wish I got help, guidance & connected with my mentors earlier - and if you’re like me, going to a class or doing a whole course feels too distant & location specific. 

Sometimes all you need is a little boost & sage perspective in your pocket to shortcut your way to flow & productivity. 

So I am SO EXCITED to offer

The addictive part of being a creative
53821012_2292556594130152_8822751102530224128_n.jpg

💖I’ve realised that the addictive part of being a creative isn’t just creating the art - but connecting with soulmate collectors who resonate with the work & understand your intentions intrinsically.

Instant Yes like instant friends.

Connection.

Resonance.

That’s my kind of addiction!
💖

53892568_2292556597463485_8647324374505881600_n.jpg

While I’ve been in an art love bubble - my heart is broken for the heartache and tragedy, especially for the families in NZ and for all of us as one community. 💔

Brenda Mangalore
💖 Thank you for being in my life 💖

💖 Thank you for being in my life 💖

Thank you for allowing ongoing conversations with you - daily check ins, daily connection, daily rants.

Thank you for the connection & grace of your presence & attention

Thank you for the opportunity to have you as part of my everyday

Thank you for your love & gifts - it enriches my life. 
You make my life fun & interesting. You allow me the chance to grow, rise up to be all I can be, to expand & experiment & explore. 

Thank you for adding joy & the full experience of this life. Even the frustrations & overwhelming desire for more. 

Thank you for your patience & kindness in my slowness or stubbornness. 
Especially when it comes to changing or pivoting or needing perfection. 

Thank you for allowing me to practice! That I can fall & fail and I get to try again

Thank you for allowing passion to flow in my life. 

Thank you for you as you are - forcing me to change, to see differently, to be a mirror my flaws AND gifts. Also for inspiring me & making my life joyous!

Thank you for teaching & leading me. For being mischievous and holding the space for ME to teach and lead.

Thank you for choosing me, staying with me, coming back to me & allowing me to come to you.

I love you. I promise to try harder, learn faster & choose you too. 

Love Brenda

— 
I wrote the above to my Creativity and to my relationship with God. 
and realised, I would want this for all my relationships with my loved ones

What if all that brings you joy, all of life is a relationship. 

One you can choose for joy, even in allowing the pain of growth. 
Or you can choose to ignore & allowing the pain of neglect and disconnection.

What would your love letter say?
Please say it to your loved ones
Please say it in prayer
Please say it to yourself

💖

Did you know what makes it easy to reconnect back to YOU & your relationship with the divine, family & creativity?

Having someone in your corner (or just a message away) to anchor you back to the brilliance of you and what you have access to 

Doing it alone is simple but requires more time, more willpower & energy to battle your self-Sabotage, Resistance & inner gremlins. 

I want to be that inner lighthouse for you! I want to remind you & be a connection for you to PURPOSE and PLAY and FLOW and FULFILMENT.

Embrace the glorious mess that you are
OCT2017_SQRsocial.jpg

Chase the chaos
Seek your soul
Find fulfilment by
Focusing on flow

Faithfully fall
Into the mess
There is beauty there
Despite the stress

Seek the sublime
Curiously wonder
You ARE being called
That isn’t a blunder

Take it seriously
Dare to dream 
Do the next step you’re shown
No matter how irrelevant it seems

These chipped nails are beautiful because...
53548527_2272225986163213_4063009392381919232_n.jpg

💖These chipped nails are beautiful because:

They mean I’ve been intentional with self care AND doing dishes

They mean I’ve been framing my art AND playing with colour for fun

They mean I’ve been practicing creative play for the sake of play — instead of waiting for a ‘better time’

They mean I’ve bothered to ‘make the effort’ despite no ‘special occasion for them’

💖Because feeling beautiful & living life IS my special occasion

Weaving it all is a practice AND a choice. It is done AND ongoing. 
It is something you need to see & think differently about AND something you actually have to DO

Why only make the effort for ‘special occasions’?

Wear the dress
Use the special plates
Put on the lipstick
Strut those shoes
String on those pearls
Cancel the boring coffee for a special date with YOU
Get the blowwave
Pull out the recipe book
Book the spa day
Make the reservation at that place

Show up for you. 
Choose your joy & pleasure AS the special occasion worthy of effort (you would for weddings or events - what if your joy could be your event?!)

When you do, it means you can give to others from the overflow of your cup. 
It means fully expressing all of you & your creativity as well as your joy will expand exponentially. 

Even if it’s just painting your nails

Courageous Surrender
BM01K2015_CourageousSurrender_1000w72dpi.jpg

“Courageous Surrender” This painting went home to an instant YES - a lady who is warm & lovely & has a heart of gold.

This painting has also inspired me for a new month
If you need this for March - this is for you too.

May you find courage in your pursuit
May you surrender to your soul
May you find flow in your days
May you find all that is within you is gold.

Use the chaos
Use the mess
Use the heartache & pain
It’s not easy I confess

You WILL find beauty there
You WILL find connection
You WILL find all that you truly seek, when you Courageously Surrender to being all you can & are meant to be

No light without the darkness
52835903_2259754137410398_8943687176743288832_n.jpg

Laying down the darks so that the brights can be brighter. 

There really is no light without the darkness. 

In art as in life!
💖

I’m seeing more and more that how I create, my creative process, is actually my process for all the work I do. 

In business, in relationships, in spiritual & mental & physical health. 

It is in the process of doing that you find the connections, you find the answers. 

It’s the decision to make the mark, the courage to leave it there — reflecting our decisions for other actions in our life & the courage to stand by them. 

It’s in the commitment to stand in the chaos & overwhelm of the messy middle stage (like this painting was at this stage)

Embrace BEING in the discomfort of NOT knowing what the next step is. 

And choosing to keep going anyway. 

Choosing to wait in FAITH that the answers will come. 

Choosing that your commitment & intentions will light the way. That YOU ARE enough. 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS

So how about you?
I wonder, if you look at your creative process...you may find the answers you seek. 
Or find the trust & faith & capacity to sit in the discomfort you need
Or find the gap that you didn’t realise was there...

Tell me, what is your process? How does it parallel the way you approach other areas of your life?

One of the best ways to find your style...
1F92ECBB-D7CA-4578-A6B6-E92D952AE3E2.jpeg

🎨One of the best ways to find your style, your flavour of marks or message...
Is to EXPERIMENT.

That freedom to just try new things, new ways, alternative perspective. Without fear of failure, since an experiment is only seeking feedback.
And a sketchbook is where you can do that.

Confession: I hadn’t kept one in YEARS. I have a journal and I write all my mindset, morning pages and to do lists in there. But a sketch book, or a visual diary...I use to keep for art school.
But now I’m out of the habit.
Why? (See if this also feels familiar)
“Too busy...all art making is for my biz!”
“No time for playing. Have to make ‘ART’ “
“I don’t have the brain space for YET ANOTHER THING to work on”

But I’ve noticed a snag that keeps coming up.

Where is the fire Brenda?
Where is the joy? Where is the ‘I’m so inspired & creative’ feeling?
Where is the confidence to just make your mark?
Where is the next level of this conversation your work is heading?

I can’t find the answers when I’m inside the forest. I can’t think my way to the answers.
I know it’s the lack of play
I know it’s the lack of pushing boundaries & finding new layers of freedom.

So long story short, I’m restarting a new habit. Keeping a sketchbook next to me when I’m painting. With the intention to play & experiment & make messes in. (Basically push further than I have and find ‘failure’) And like all new habits, It’s clumsy & feels awkward. It’s clunky & uncomfortable.

Do me a favour? Share with me your new awkward habit? So I don’t feel so alone! 

Something you’re setting the intention for but isn’t quite flowing yet? We can encourage each other this year!

Or comment with your favourite heart emoji to give me a boost on this new change!

I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN...

🎨I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN...

I didn’t know it then, but after painting this at the beginning of the year (a few months after becoming a mama) I didn’t pick up a paintbrush for almost a year.

-

Lack of sleep, PND, anxiety and the avalanche of new emotions, navigating new mamahood and just general dying of my old self — all contributed to the lack of soul connection to my art.

Sure, painting can be a deep source of therapy, but for me, I can only paint when my internal world is flowing (as evidenced in my outer world)

So I like looking back and seeing this as a reminder that my art is an amazing barometer for where I am at, and maybe even a hint of where I am going.

And that I have to be vigilant with my energy care, my mind and heart care and general self-love and self-care even if my inner critic calls it self-ish

💖>> my art AND my babies need it << 💖

For all the new mamas out there and those mama-to-be. I send you so much love.

May you love and care for yourself as much as you will for your baby. It may feel simple, it may feel obvious, it may feel cliché.

But, you at your best (even if it means time AWAY from your baby) is really the BEST THING YOU CAN

💖

DO for your child and your family.

Do it before you need to do it.

Do it even if it’s ‘inconvenient’

Do it even if you ‘feel fine’

Do it to make it a habit, a practice, a ritual & just part of who you are as the BEST MAMA you can BE.

💖

And cuddle your babies as much as possible because the other cliché about it flying past is also true.

And you don’t want to waste a minute stuck in a fog of stress, guilt, shame, zombie-lack-if-sleep and ‘busyness’

- x Brenda -

p.s If you’re ready for more...you’re out of the haze & overwhelm of kids
You’re ready for some focus on your own heart & soul

You may be a Muse Mama ready to step up

Do you find yourself feeling this sense of DISatisfaction in your life?
Don’t get me wrong, you totally are GRATEFUL and your life is totally FINE…. Yet there is this BUT….
There is this sense that something is missing

You LOVE your kids — but you’re finding that they don’t need you as much anymore. Whether leaving the nest, starting full time school or just finding yourself coming out of the fog of those early months.

You are tired of only having stories about your kids to share. Something THEY did, something THEY achieved or learnt or did that was horrifying.

You had promised yourself that you weren’t going to be the mama that lives through their children!

That thing you’re missing? It’s the creative spark. It’s the spark of fulfilment that comes with feeling ON PURPOSE. It’s the spark of joy that gives life meaning.

You LOVE your kids — but they are NOT your identity (you want to find it or explore it more. Working out who you are in this new chapter)
You want to find YOU again

There is something MORE you are being called to do. You don’t need to be clear about what exactly that is…but you know that it’s there and you can’t ignore it anymore. 

You know that ignoring that call, ignoring that inner voice is actually affecting the way you show up in your mamahood. You give EVERYTHING to your kids — but you need help to give that same love to YOURSELF

And you know that creativity is the seed from which the blossom of your next beautiful chapter will bloom.

Then I want to invite you to join us as a MUSE MAMA
Do you want resources & support on the Mindset & Manifestation Magic you need as a creative mama?
Do you want to have a conscious connection with other ambitious women BEYOND mamahood?

Who inspire you and are inspired BY YOU with the world changing Big Dream you are being called to create
Whether that is planting a rose garden or ending poverty — you don’t have to do it alone!

Are you looking for a space to cultivate your confidence, creativity & your calling? 
To finding YOUR flavour of weaving biz & babies, work & life?

YOU ALREADY HAVE IT WITHIN YOU (How to feel confident in yourself)
52313836_2254883744564104_8772593740008128512_n.jpg

💖YOU ALREADY HAVE IT WITHIN YOU (How to feel confident in yourself)
I’m sitting at my favourite coffee shop, drinking my favourite coffee & starting to feel guilty that I’m not DOING.
But I also knew that the sitting & journaling & talking to myself — is how I will be able to keep up the energy of DOING

It’s also how I peel back the doubts & layers of fears to find the confidence for my next steps. 

I was stressing and asking HOW HOW HOW?!? 

My inner wisdom keeps saying:
You already have it within you

That inspired idea
That amazing motivation to take action
That feeling of flow in your day
You already have that within you.

That creativity for ingenious solutions
That patience for your kids
That joy & playfulness despite the deadlines
You already have it within you

The only reason you may not be seeing it, living it, doing it?
You haven’t CONNECTED within.

Have you taken the time to say hello to your soul?
To embrace & acknowledge your creativity?
To pause and listen to your intuition? (Which is just a fancy word for your inner voice)

You may have forgotten your own rituals to pause & connect

You may have neglected that relationship for a while

Start now, start today. 
Take a minute to meditate
Take a lunch break to journal
Commit to talking to your inner self all day today.

Rediscover yourself again
Rediscover the immense rivers of flow, inspiration & capacity you have within you to DO & BE the person you want to be. 

Start with gratitude for another chance to reconnect

Commit to keep trying even when it’s hard or awkward or you forget

Trust in the process, you already have the wisdom within you & it will show up around you 

AND make sure you acknowledge the inspired ideas & TAKE ACTION on it as soon as possible.

Treat it like a precious relationship (with yourself it is a SACRED connection!)
Like any relationship, it takes time but also attention & acknowledging that connection. 

And if your inner self is giving you directions & suggestions, it wouldn’t help your relationship if you never followed it & keep feeling stuck. 

You already have it all within you. The confidence will come when you connect within for the wisdom you need to take the next step. 

How do you connect within? What are your personal practices to find self-confidence when you’re not sure what to do next?

Muse Mama Members & I are connecting to our daily devotions to connect to our creativity. Trust & faith in the process, your OWN process.

Are you seeking connection to your self, your creativity & would love a community to do that with? 
Muse Mama village has the resources to spark & reconnect to your creativity & the YOU beyond what you are doing. Your next chapter, your next masterpiece, your next level self.

🎨DEADLINES🎨

🎨DEADLINES🎨


It isn’t something I want ALL the time but there is nothing like it to ensure I find my flow regardless of how “shitty” my situation or my lack of “feeling it”

Are you looking for flow? Maybe it’s time to set a deadline...or even better, sign up for something so it’s a true blue all caps DEADLINE 

🎨DO MY JOB🎨


Painting for my exhibit in Sydney in March has forced me to just focus on my paintings. BUT I’m still being reminded outside the studio...
to do my job and not waste time & energy on what someone else is doing.

As in...my job is to do my best. My job is to PRODUCE the work. NOT POLICE the reactions of others to it. 

What job are you doing? 

🎨DO THE DANCE🎨

You know that Wiggles song ‘do the dance’? Anyway...for me it’s always about the dance I do in my creative process. Of stepping forward for the intricate details. The close up and focus on tiny sections.

Then, stepping back for the big picture. Seeing the whole painting not just on its own but also as part of a collection. 

Zooming in and out
Dancing between details and vision
Dancing between play and purpose
Dancing between chaos & structure
It’s the heart & joy of my art!

Over to you!
What have you been noticing?

💖

Will you be in Sydney in March? 

Wanna come see the latest paintings I’ll be showing with the other 119 selected artists at The Other Art Fair.

🎨3 LESSONS FROM PAINTING...🎨FOR A PURPOSEFUL, JOYFUL LIFE🎨
843CE61D-77F7-4ECA-8272-4AB01BFC0972.jpeg

🎨3 LESSONS FROM PAINTING...🎨
FOR A PURPOSEFUL, JOYFUL LIFE🎨

(so far... this will always evolve and expand over time FOR SURE)

1. Watch your posture

This photo explains my sore back! Posture also means how you hold yourself, how you are aware of this incredible machine that moves you from place to place and enables you to create. 

The temple that holds your brain and enables soul to come from the divine to this physical reality. 

Hold yourself strong, with mindfulness & intention. This applies to your mental posture too. It all affects your creativity which you need to do the amazing work you do. 

2. Allow your own chaos. 

Mindless chaos is easy. That’s what the world talks about. That’s what stress and overwhelm likes to drown you in. 

Chaos that is intentionally harnessed so you can find the balance of ‘random’ but too WAY MORE EFFORT to create that balanced ‘randomness’- that’s where the art is!

Same for your life. Maybe on paper it’s crazy and ‘disorganised’ and you’ve tried all the ‘methods’ and strategies that gurus sell to you.

But I’ve found, YOUR FLAVOUR of crazy or chaos that works for you? That resonates even though you can’t articulate why? 

That IS your art. That is YOUR voice. Find YOUR balance of intentional chaos and strategic random. Your crazy is totally allowed if it means flow, art & joyful purpose! 

3. Don’t forget the edges.

Sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down to the DOING of the meaty, juicy bit in the middle. Getting stuck into flow is intoxicating and believe or not...distracting. 

If you’re feeling like something isn’t quite right? You may have forgotten about the edges.

Which means, those things on the edges of your peripheral vision. The neglected little details. The things behind closed doors that no one else is going to notice or give you likes or comments. 

Things that had been niggling at you, but you got distracted with the big wins, the fire to put out, the loud voices about your BIG PURPOSE IN LIFE.

Or just scrolling and making the perfect post for a boost in your social engagement. 
But if you want that satisfying feeling of wholeness...that comes when you finish your art. 

Always check the edges, the little details no one else may notice consciously. Things that, ‘doesn’t really matter’ but matters TO YOU. Give it the attention and mindfulness you do to the things that are front and center to the public. 



Now I’m off to paint again. Unleashing the chaos, watching my posture & seeing ALL the details and ALL the whole vision of art that’s calling me. 
What are you creating?

Are you connecting within? Feeling like your creativity is slowly fading?

Are you allowing your flavour of chaos and creativity to flow in your life? 

Are you seeking a community to connect over weaving a life of art AND babies?


💖You might be a MUSE MAMA!💖


Do you find yourself feeling this sense of DISatisfaction in your life?

IT’S ONE OR THE OTHER
D7B3DBD8-AB7A-4E93-8B5D-59FA8A378E46.jpeg

IT’S ONE OR THE OTHER


Last night I’m sitting on the toilet and got a mental epiphany...as you do when you finally get some alone time

💖💖💖
“Everything you do is an act of worship (to your purpose, to God, to your art)
Or
it’s an act of rejection.”

💖💖💖

When you make the art, take the nap you need, eat food that helps you in flow...act of worship

When you actively learn and seek clarity on your vision and purpose...act of worship

When you do your mummy-ing when it’s mummy duty time. When you make art when it’s make art time. When you stay up all night to get that inspiration done. When you take the nap because your body needed it. 
All...acts of worship

Or

When you get inspired and then say...nah too hard. Not for me. I’m not good enough....act of rejection

When you choose shadow work, close enough but not quite in alignment with your soul...act of rejection

When you talk toxic words to yourself, when you stay stuck or sabotage or allow Resistance to stop you...act of rejection

I’m still unraveling this new thought that feels familiar and obvious and ‘duh, haven’t we been saying this for ages?’ 

while also feeling completely profound and like a lightning bolt. 

Like you KNOW when it’s one or the other. 
you already KNOW if your next act is worship or rejection

And I know, I won’t find clarity from just thinking it through. 
Talking it out, sharing it, doing work I’m called to in the light of this revelation.... that’s how this aha moment will weave its way into my life. 

So as with all art and finding clarity of direction...let’s start with intention:

💖I want my life to be an act of worship💖


Writing it down here. Sharing my heart with you. Making my life my art. My art my life. I hope it’s an act of worship. Always. 

Worship as in:
Full commitment to focus and learning more
Soul immersion
Seeing the wholeness & fullness of it
Surrender
Faith & Trust in the connection
That “HELL YES! This is IT!”
24/7 thinking, talking, dreaming about it
Cultivating connection
Communication & Communion
Conviction of your calling

What do you choose? 

Worship or Rejection?

- x Brenda -

p.s All this talk of creation, connection & cultivating a practice of communion with creativity and purpose? Plays out more fully inside my Muse Mama village. 

Besides access to my digital workshops to ignite and explore your creativity & build a creative practice...

Besides access to my booklets of Resistance & my creative process (coming soon! On how to cultivate it for your art & life)

Your creative Spark is the seed where your next chapter will bloom

Your creative Voice is the heart of where the full expression of YOU will lead the way to the best Mama AND Muse you are called to be

Your creative Practice is the anchor you get to cultivate in the chaos of life & pursuing your art.

🎨How to get started making your art:🎨
50938203_2226282644090881_8715818086285967360_n.jpg

🎨How to get started making your art:🎨

> clear the tiniest space you need (photo of a little spot on my messy kitchen bench)

> “throw paint on the canvas” whatever that looks like for your medium or media

> embrace the imperfection...of your tools, your space, your ‘feelings’ or inspiration, your skills

> trust the call to make, trust you will find a way, trust you have what you need to start NOW and will get what you need as you KEEP GOING

> keep throwing paint on canvas until you find flow, or your ‘satisfaction point’ which for me is sometimes 10minutes

> walk away and commit to do it again tomorrow. And do it.

> repeat

🔥What you don’t need:🔥

X perfect anything. Tools, timing, skills, space, feelings

X exact idea of what you’re making. 
Sometimes a vague direction is the perfect start

X exact skills you need for the vision, sometimes you will only learn them on the way to the vision

X feel in flow. Sometimes, especially when you have been out of practice, it takes a while to clear the gunk out. Before the tap can flow easily. Trust & be faithful in the process

X too much focus on the end goal. Doing it for the process is what makes the journey enjoyable, creates the best art and allows you to find accidental magic and a bigger vision than you originally intended.

X too much focus on the process, nitpicking and complaining about the lack of...perfection. Remember your job is to essentially ‘take dictation from soul’. Work with the muse. Your Muse is responsible for the grand magic and yours is to COMMIT to the partnership to bring it to life. 

💖Now, what are you going to finally go work on today?

💖sending you love & creative flow!
