Don't forget to own your own power and don't forget that you have it. 

Hello My friends, 

Well here we are in February now, craziest February I can remember in terms of world craziness anyway. As I write this I'm sitting on my balcony watching it rain and smelling that wonderful scent of rain on Earth. The Small things, little blessings are important to stop and notice. I will take them wherever I can find them. 

I am ever awe struck at the compassion and outpouring of love that you guys via social media have shown me, my Mum and My kitties. Blackie and Baby passed within 1 week of each other both from Cancer. My solace is found in knowing that our souls continue on. This is my belief. Death is a part of the package of the gift of life and though it is a hard hard experience to go through that never seems to get easier it is the price we must pay for getting to share our lives with the ones we Love. I wanted to thank you all again so very much for the prayers you have sent us. 

I had a strong dream early this morning, one of those dreams where there is a very definite message. The message of this dream was 

Don't forget to own your own power and don't forget that you have it. 

This stayed with me all day circling in my head as I tried to digest it. Many of us have been feeling overwhelmed by feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness in the face of such challenging times both politically and personally. It is hard to feel powerful when things seem to be so far out of our hands. This is why I think it is so important to find ways of stopping ourselves from being swallowed up by this worldwide all pervading sense of doom. If you look back into history you'll find that the great movements of change were times of huge upheaval and difficulty but people supported one another. People stayed strong in their beliefs and held fast to the knowledge that they did have the power to change things for the better. They were ready to fight to the last for their beliefs to never give up and so should we. 

It is not the time to stay quiet and hope it all fixes itself and I think we are all aware of this. In the midst of all this chaotic trouble however it is so important to remember to also find the ways of stopping it all, taking time to ground out and re center ourselves. We all are powerful, far more so than I think we even realize. 

We are starting to understand this and it gives me great hope and confidence. 

Making Art has always been one of the best ways I've found to slow it all down and ground myself. Also to express the things I don't know how to say. Lately it has been an enormous comfort to me. A while back I had an idea for a series of drawings that I wanted to do but I hadn't quite worked out how to do them. 

I've always been interested in sacred alphabets and their use in the creation of Sigils in particular for use in meditation. 

I started a series of Art Sigils in India Ink with a Calligraphy Pen using an alphabet I created that is inspired by theban and Angelic scripts. I also started a series of drawings made in the style of Calligraphic Figurative Art using the Berber Tiffanegh script. Fun stuff. I will be posting some of them as I make them on my website and I'm thinking of offering them for sale also as I think for those of us who like to use them they can be helpful ;) 

I also have found an amazing new wax for the candles that is just fantastic. It holds more scent and burns even cleaner ( very exciting for a chandler) so I have them currently on sale for 1/3 of their normal price on

I am one of those people who is very sensitive to chemicals in perfume and scent. Most scented candles give me headaches or nausea. I created these scents with an amazing classically trained perfumer specifically so as not to have these affects on folks who are sensitive like me. 

They are made to order though by hand so please do be patient and look at the processing time stated. 

Anyways I also wanted to mention something else. 

Getting to know some of you online has been such a cool experience. Getting to share things I'm interested in and getting to share the things you post. I really enjoy it. When you make films you just do your job, you give it all you have to give and then you let it go. There are no applause, no feedback like there is with theatre or music. You just do the project then you move on. Getting to hear that this work I've given my life to affects people and that they really appreciate it means so much to me. I never realized how much it affected some folks. It makes all the years of sacrifice and hard work worth it to know that it did something out there in the world. So Thank you. Thank you for the love and support you give me and have given me and Thank you for sharing your stories with me. I love hearing them. 

Love and best wishes to you all 

XXOO

    I'm quite pleased that you have chosen to expand your horizons and share the many faucets in which an artist has and opened more despite critiques and others telling you that you should only expand your artistry in a certain way, I think what has furthered you though is that your approach has expanded mixing brighter prospects of the present and past. I look forward to more work from you and honestly the best blogs are the ones that are paced as you want them. Take care Fairuza,
