“A conscious journey of self awareness is an adventure. It can raise us to the heights of joy and feelings of lightness and freedom or to the depths of bondage and darkness. It is our choice where we travel.”
I started this website to showcase my portfolio of artwork. My artwork is a reflection of my spiritual beliefs.
I love drawing and there are days and weeks where I will spend the bulk of my time doing just that. With that said I want to share more then just my art. I want to share ideas and philosophies that inspire it.
When I was very young, I was fortunate enough to be made to go to a spiritualist church.
I should say that I was made to go to church since I was six, but when I went to live with my maternal grandmother I didn’t have to go to church anymore. She was an atheist.
One Easter my Auntie Iona told me she was picking me up for church. Now I have to say I was pretty unhappy and begged my grandmother to let me stay home. Fortunately she didn’t intervene.
My Aunt didn’t tell me anything about this church except she knew I would love it. And she was right.
It was such a different experience then the churches I had experienced in the past. It wasn’t really like going to church. This church was a rich tapestry of east meets west philosophies. I was introduced to so many wonderful soul thirsty ideas. It was like my whole life had been a dream and I just woke up.
Well I’m still waking up a day at a time.
My core beliefs at this moment in my life are:
- We are all divine energy which I refer to as a soul.
- Our souls are in a constant state of evolution.
- We choose to have a human experience.
- Ultimately each human is on a path of enlightenment.
- That enlightenment continues our soul’s evolution.

I am an avid reader and I have learned so much from the wonderful books I have read over the years. I decided recently to revisit some of my older books.
To see what different perspective I might have at this point in my life. That lead me to research some other older books I don’t have.
And that search lead to the idea of sharing what I’m discovering with you.
So I have put together a collection of vintage books, essay and poetry on mysticism , creating prosperity and mindfulness. I’m hoping to create a place to make them more accessible and user friendly to “us” , modern seekers of ancient wisdom.
For me there is something about some older writings that fills me with awe. There is a feeling of mystery and majesty that I just don’t feel when I read most currant books.
I think some of it comes from the style of writing and the time it was written. It feels like what I might imagine Howard Carter felt like when he discovered Tutankhamen’s tomb. Except better.
I will also get together a book list of current work that were life changing and profoundly moving for me. They gave me a better understanding of some questions I had/have. I alway have more questions. It seems the moment one question gets answered a bunch more pop up.
Peace starts with Us, one thought at a time.
