Metamorphosis.

“Don’t be afraid to look deeper, for you have the power to accept everything you see.”

DEPTH

This is my final blog post here at herhertmatters.net. I appreciate everyone who has decided that I was influential enough to allow my words to impact them in one way or another. To me the need for these kinds of earthly connections prove that we do need each other, and we are all here to serve each other, walk in our individual power and heal ourselves, and others. I plan to do more. Be more, and most importantly manifest more. I would hope that all of you would join me on my new path and if that resonates with you, my info to connect is below.

Inspiring Visuals and Sounds | Yep. I got a Jones :)

Beautiful Wednesday ❤

I thought I’d share some visual candy. I have a Jones for vivid, unique, and clever themes, and concepts– particularly extreme conveyances, and full deep expressions. (mixed media artist appetites) lol I like to be able to turn the sound off and allow my imagination to figure out the story or message being portrayed without words. Then I like to watch again with sound. You should try it sometime I think you’d be surprised at your own interpretations.

Whimsical, ethereal, dark fantasy, or cartoon-like; I love it all. The ability to convey several message via sound and visuals is something I’ve been drawn to since I was a child. I watched Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker a zillion times. I hope you enjoy these visuals and sounds by extremely talented artists, and their creative teams.They give me so much inspiration!

Family <3

In no way is this my entire immediate family, but I LOVE them.

I hope none of them sees this because they will be upset that they couldn’t fit..Hey I have lots of pics not online but I chose the ones I had immediately available. lol I hope everyone has a happy holiday! thought I’d share a snapshot of one of my many sources of joy and LoVe. These folks (and the ones not photographed, which are many) have been holding be up and I really appreciate their truth, honesty and love. I wouldn’t trade them in even if I could. I haven’t blogged in a while so what a loving way to show my heart. I hope you and all your families experience an abundance of unity and happiness.

Abstract Fall ❤

image

Some abstract pieces I’ve been picking up and putting back down for about a week. I find when I do this the concept is of little concern, which is great for abstract art. I utilized some Golden Acrylics and pastels for both of them. Can you believe I used a real lemon and a real apple to create some of the circle patterns? 💞😁
It’s been a while and I miss blogging. Between art classes and day to day life it’s been a struggle to sit down and blog. Fall is my second favorite season, of course my first is winter, so I’m very happy about that! A few changes are happening spiritually this solstice for me. I’ve actually been practicing creating my own journals, which is inclusive in my vision and contribution to humanity in the near future. Sometimes I wonder what sleep looks like. But then I’m humbled that I have breath, and life, and the energy to do with my energies being pulled in various directions. #balance 💋

xoxo and Happy Fall! 🍁🍂🎨 | Alysia 💖

My HeART Journal | 7.8.14

Sharing adornments I created over the weekend with you! I love plugs, and I don’t want to stretch my lobes so I decided to create my version for pierced ears. Well those are the hand painted ones with the neon heart and a button in the middle ❤ I like to mix and match stuff I also made a Patchwork inspired Heart Brooch. Mixed media jewelry was my inspiration behind all these! I LoVe Buttons, and flowers too! I keep fresh flowers around regularly. Colors reflect and create moods. I even put one in my Grandma’s hair! 🙂

I can’t wait to hit the Urban Craft Uprising Market at the Seattle Street Food Festival in August! I created an “VAcationSpiration board” for my trip! I’m ready to go like NOW! lol

If you like these vibrant artifacts, or you would like to share what your imagination is expressing I’d love to see!! Please share below!

Wholistic Vision Board|06.29.14

WHOLISTICLIVITY

 

I finally finished my Wholistic Vision Board. I can’t wait to create a few more!! I couldn’t fit everything on this one of course! lol  ❤ ❤

 

Vision boards are a great way to meditate on what’s true. Images translate what 1000 words can’t. Though I chose to use positive affirmations, precepts, and happy stuff I wanted to include more images than words. I am an advocate of these!!

Submerged in Harmony| The Light. 6.18.14. AD

 

harmony

 

Below is a diary entry from 2012. I decided to share because the manifestation of the dream Yahweh gave me is coming to pass in this period of my souls journey. Back then was the beginning of my inner-healing journey. Since 2012 I can’t tell you how many tears, pain, doubt, struggle, fear, betrayal, laughter, smiles, kisses, hugs, encouragement & pure bliss has come to me…and this continues. I need all of these experiences, so I embrace them fully. I am a healing-healer. When I had this dream I had no clue this would actualize in my life. All I knew is how real what I saw and felt was. So much has happened that has tempted me to doubt what I was shown.  Today I’m fully submerged, and enjoying this fear-less wonder as I surrender. Water has always had a way of healing me. I’ve been known to take extremely long baths, and I love to swim. lol Water has always had a way of calming me, and oddly I feel very safe in it. I hope that each of you can get a glimpse of what it means to be truly free, fully overtaken by your pursuit of wholeness. It is your birthright. It takes confidence in The Most High and Self to submerge into the harmonious and healthy waters. Harmony means “off-notes” will be involved. It’s ok… “play with your own squishy.” (in the words of Andre 3000) lol And I say allow those things that make no sense become your new normal.  Above all I hope you will be inspired and enlightened.

Submerged

January 23, 2012 at 11:21pm

Earlier this evening I had a dream. I dreamed I was deep in the ocean under the water looking up and I saw the light of the sun gleaming through the crystal blue. For once in my life I didn’t care who was around me. Who was enjoying. Who was pleased, or who saw that light but me. I didn’t care who felt that freedom from the water making me feel weightless but me. I stared at that beam from the sun from under that deep water for about 3 min. I was amazed at how free I was; as it seemed the water enjoyed me. It embraced me. It helped me see clear. I was submerged in something that I enjoy most. Water. I love the ocean. I love to swim. I didn’t rush it and it didn’t rush me. The way the sun shined almost purposefully right above me was surreal. I wasn’t afraid either. I was deep in and had no fear.

 

I made a very challenging decision earlier today. Before I had this dream. I didn’t care if anyone approved, I wasn’t looking for validation for what I felt was right for me for one of the few times in my life. It’s a process that I’m in. This change is life-altering for me. When I woke up from the dream I felt so refreshed and carefree and relaxed, but yet energetic and rejuvenated at the same time.

 

 

I interpret my dream to mean that when I submerge myself into healing relentlessly that’s the place where I find my serenity. Water purges. When I purge my space spiritually, physically and mentally and immerse ME in the new waters, I thrive, I float, I dance. It’s deep and I may look around and see no one, but I am so occupied with this new found freedom, and peace and beauty that it hasn’t hit me nor have I stopped to even looked around. Reality is it’s not necessary to. My path is one that only I can travel. I never ran out of breath under the ocean. I didn’t panic. The wide ocean space was not a concern (and I normally have a fear of wide open spaces). When I see that the waters are so deep that I am light, and carefree and I see light above me; which represents my heavenly father, I know I’m in the right place.
