Rise Above with me in Alaska

Rise Above with me in Alaska

Rise Above with me in Alaska

I’ve been honored to assist the most amazing Suzanne Hanna with her #thewildernesswalk in Alaska and whole exploring our own uncharted territories within, we have had MAGICAL experiences in Denali National Park!Day 2 we got to tour the entire park and we were so grateful to see Denali (the mountain)! I almost burst into tears when it came into view. Only 30% of visitors get to see it because of clouds and we saw it “base to peak!”AND we saw EIGHT grizzly bears, including this sweet boy who walked straight towards us down the road and walked right under my window!!

Two days later I treated myself to an airplane tour of Denali! Holy klamole!

Denali is 20,320’ at its tallest peak and is incredibly massive! It felt like we were flying right next to it and our pilot told us we were at least a mile away!

Talk about RISE ABOVE!

When we get to live as a Life Artist, every experience has many facets of meaning and so many more different gifts to offer.

Rising above the immense landscape put everything in perspective. As I reflected on the amazing transformation I had witnessed during our time in Alaska, the view from the plane made me realize how some parts of our life’s “landscapes” pale in comparison to what is truly important to us.

It is way too easy to live life on the surface, lost in the day to day, the routine, the details, the busyness…. Right?

CREATIVITY connects you to the rock solid mountain of your most authentic self. 

CREATIVITY is your ally as you learn to communicate with your wild, natural and free YOU!

What vision do you have looming in the distance? What new landscapes do you want to explore.

You are a life artist. You are the sole creator of your experience.

This is such a powerful AH-HAH that I know will inspire more LOVE and COMPASSION in the art that is your life!

Check out more videos on my YouTube channel.

Are you RULING your life as a benevolent ruler? Or is your inner critic ruling?

When you paint, you align with your creatress self and receive insight into how to create MORE of what you want and how to RELEASE that which is no longer serving you.

Here is the painting (still in process) that I refer to in the video–my SOVEREIGN SELF declaration!!!

How to Use Tilt Shift for Beautiful Photos

How to Use Tilt Shift for Beautiful Photos

How to Use Tilt Shift for Beautiful Photos

I remember when my photographer friend, Kristen Roedner, introduced me to the “Tilt Shift” editing feature in Instagram–it changed everything! Magic is at your fingertips!

I want to help you discover the magic too…

Here is a before picture of my Owl Planter…

Here it is after Tilt Shift (and probably after bumping up the color saturation too)…

Here is a step-by-step in Instagram.

#1 Select your photo to post on Instagram.

#2 Click Edit at the bottom (it goes to Filter by default). You can choose a filter first and then go to Edit or vice versa. “Tilt Shift” is here under Edit.

See how in the first flower image above everything is in focus and below it fades…

#3 Once in Tilt Shift, you can choose from the radial or linear magical-misty pattern. In the owl I chose the radial. That way the very center, where you align the circle, is focused and it radiates out to the misty-magical.

In the image below, I used the “Linear” option and you can see how the whole left side of the photo is in focus and it radiates the misty-magical linearly to the right.

I hope you enjoy Tilt Shift as much as I do!

Check out Kristen on Facebook HERE.  She took this pic of me and Allison Crow at our Paint Big Retreat! LOVE!

Thank you for joining me and The Creatively Fit Coaching Tribe for the “Celebrate the ART that is your LIFE” Photo Quest! Have fun creating magic with your images!

LOVE!

Return of the Bird Tribes . Chapter 17 . Medicine Wheel of Eternal Being

Return of the Bird Tribes . Chapter 17 . Medicine Wheel of Eternal Being

How much do we love painting birds!?

One of my favorite books is Return of the Bird Tribes.

Click above to order.

I recorded these audios to share Chapter 17 with my tribe of Creatively Fit Coaches.

You are welcome to listen in…

Chapter 17 . Part I

This detail from the above bird painting reminds me of the dance between the Nagual and the Tonal, the masculine and the feminine…the luminous energy all around each of us and each and every material object on this planet! How would you paint it?

Chapter 17 . Part II

When it talks about Father Sun and Mother Earth singing back and forth to each other….

This painting was intended to embody the masculine and the feminine, the moon and the sun, the earth and the sun.

Chapter 17 . Part III

“You are here in the service of universal art to create beauty and to enjoy all that has been created. The evocation of beauty and the description of truth: this is your purpose. The purpose of life! The very purpose of the universe.” p. 190, Chapter 17, Return of the Bird Tribes

I hope you enjoy listening to these amazing words. Thank you for allowing me to share. PLEASE comment below to let me know your thoughts and I so look forward to the conversation.

A’Ho! Whitney Freya

Day 2 Kathmandu! 

Day 2 Kathmandu! 

I love to travel & add new “colors” to my life’s “palette.” My new Art Gypsy series (filmed in Greece and Guatemala so far) are an opportunity for you to join me as we explore the beauty of our Mother eARTh! Enjoy this excerpt from my travels to Nepal.

I’m in Kathmandu, Nepal for the first time ever because 16 months ago when my friend Puja told me her vision of bringing more creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship to Nepal I said, “When do you want to do it? WE can do this!”

BOOM!

See how easy it is to create adventure in the art that is your life?! Listen, listen to another’s dreams and then create the space for them to take the first step!

Here are Puja and I today in front of a temple to Ganesh…

 

But let me start at the beginning of today… Harpal and I were up early so we set out to explore our new neighborhood.

 

They just celebrated New Year (Buddhist calendar style) so there are metallic decor everywhere. Love it! Bright shiny objects! 

Then, I spied an interesting alley that led to a fresh food market! I was in heaven…

This little boy looked really OVER tidying up the onions! 

Then, we found The Chai Guy!! 

This is the REAL thing! We sat there for a while and we all laughed as the milk boiled over–the universal language of Chai! 

Creativeness Fest starts tomorrow and we are christening a new event space that involves shipping containers and a brand new conference / stage / tent that is still being erected!!! We are NOT stressed…we’re in Kathmandu! 

Here I am with the art store man, Sushil! So nice! 

After we paid for all the supplies (thanks to all of you who donated) we walked around the adjoining market and visited the temples.

Now I have to go set up my painting / shipping container!!! 

Stay tuned for more photos. Love to you all!!
