This is a photo diary of a henna session and photoshoot I did with Savannah Joy Yoga, and Izabela Rachwal. The images here showcase the creative process of getting a henna tattoo. My inspiration for this henna session came when I began drawing and tuning into deities. I stumbled upon a beautiful image of Buddha, drawn by the talented Hettie Baker. Inspiration often comes from others and her unique drawing inspired me to bring Buddha to life in my own unique fashion. My next question, as always, was who will work with me to create this vision? Lucky for me, Spirit always answers my call and in this case, led me to Savannah, who modelled my vision with Joy and grace, and in turn brought with her Izabela Rachwal, who stepped in unexpectedly with her camera and visual expertise to capture the experience.
Collaborating together with these ladies was an extraordinary experience. You know that feeling you get when you're doing exactly what you love and life is fully supporting you? This is exactly how I felt. I knew I was in the middle of creating magic, I was doing what my spirit came here to do. Create, Collaborate and Support one another in bringing out our fullest, brightest potential. Transforming people and decorating them with art is so wonderful, and I feel blessed to have finally stepped into my Dharma, my purpose and into my potential.
Using Henna as a tool for this practice is so unique as henna is only temporary but has the power change a persons life and support them on their own journey. A henna session ultimately becomes a meditation as the process literally transforms the body physically, mentally and emotionally. As I bring a vision to life, the person receiving the henna gets to simply rest, relax and let the experience transform them. Since the henna plant is a medicine of it's own rite, it leaves people feeling abundant, beautiful, confident and happy. For me it always begins with finding the right inspiration for that person. A picture, an image or a sensation can be that inspiration and when that feeling stirs inside of me and a vision comes to me, I know I'm on the creative journey with Universal Spirit to bring that vision to life and transform that person.
From make believe to real life... this is the creative journey.
If you'd like to join the journey, please get in touch, I'd love to collaborate.
With love and Light,
