The Story Magic Tribe
Are you in my tribe of spiritual creative women who want to play for their transformation?
In this tribe, we employ our creativity to joyfully manifest our dream, embody our purpose, share our gifts with the world and live our brilliance!
If you are one of these women and you have not joined my tribe…
…go do it now and enjoy an anthology of shamanic stories, including shamanic insights from each story that will open your mind and heart. Here’s the link.
If you are already in my tribe, you are in for a new baptism. Some of you have asked me what’s up with the new name?
Here’s the story: for more than a decade, the name of our tribe has been the Magicmark Your Life Tribe because we use our creativity (color markers being a good symbol for it) to change our lives.
But as I developed new ways to do just that, I realized that the thing that ignites our hearts is story. Whether it is hearing someone tell a […]

Shifting from Fear to Faith in the Midst of Adversity

Shifting from Fear to Faith
in the Midst of Adversity
In a private FB group to which I belong I was deeply moved by a woman going through so many problems compiled by environmental disasters and tipped by the troublesome political climate to the point that –even when she had great faith, a faith I could feel deep in her core—she was feeling desperate, fragmented and gripped by fear for herself, her family and her community.
Let us call her Mary.
If you are going through multiple problems while feeling the pressure of these scary, troubled times getting to you so that you are losing your center of serenity, this is for you with love.
~~~~
Beautiful Mary, I feel the fear in you and I feel the faith in you. I send a prayer for you to shift from fear to faith with ease and grace.
As I hear you describing what is going on in your life –the adversity, disease, financial insecurity, compiled with environmental disasters in your region and overwhelming political transgressions to our democracy, I see a vision…
I’m seeing the adversity you describe. […]

Real Artists Don’t Starve

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I’ve been waiting for this book for over three decades.
The first decades comprised my own agonizing war between creativity and money that saw me struggling to not only do my art without pay, but to pay in order to do my art.
The later decades were full of frustrating conversations within the creative community. In these painful conversations I saw my earlier identity as a starving artist mirrored in different versions with each new generation, especially in the Latino community –where we are already predisposed to being devalued, underpaid and ignored by the mainstream. The same applied to women artists and to other minority artists, until I got into the forums and realized these conversations were the norm among all creatives. Something had to change!

And now this book […]

Thieves from the past that steal your present

Pillar Articles
Meet the two thieves from the past
that steal your present

Discover the two types of limiting stories that steal your gifts,
distort your opportunities and thwart your potential.

 
In the Pillar Article What is Story ALchemytm, you discovered that very early on in life you inherited or created Story Fields for almost every aspect of your life.
Review
You learned that these Story Fields are just like the stories your mom told you when you were a child. They have the 5Ws: who, what, where, when and why. You understood that the reason why you are full of old hidden stories is because that’s the way your brain makes sense of and stores reality.
Bear in mind that once your mind decides that a Story Field works to address reality, it installs it as a Neural Map. From then on, any similar situation is interpreted and responded to based on that blueprint.
The image I gave you was to imagine that your mind is a farm and each of these Story Fields is a field planted there. Some were planted before you were even born! […]

You understood that the reason why you are full of old hidden stories is because that’s the way your brain makes sense of and stores reality.
