  • I haven't posted anything in 6 months and this is the first thing I have to offer you - a video of me fresh out the shower, without makeup or hair to cover the acne scars on my cheeks, with fresh little outbreaks from being on my cycle and totally aware of the fact I’m pretty much naked... Which is perfect, because in posting this I feel naked in so many ways. You've seen my art but not much of me and I don't think I've shared this with you before, but I've had this deep fear of posting photos/videos of myself on here for a long time. Might seem irrational, but its actually felt a bit crippling. So I decide I'm going to conquer this fear and make my first post a video of myself. I had it all planned - wanted to wait another week when my skin will be clearer, hair shinier. But an hour ago I get out of the shower and my heart perks up telling me to have a go at making the video -it's everything that I did not want it or plan it to be... Which is wonderful. The other video would've been great too, but still hiding in some way.
.
There's a part of me that feels I'm posting this for you, hoping that sharing from my heart in this act of self acceptance will give people permission to do the same for themselves. But in reality, I'm fed up of this invisible prison I place on myself. Posting this still feels terrifying, but at the same time expansive... Liberating... And I can still feel the fears/doubts coming up over it, but I know I don't have to listen to them. Because they only have the power I give them - when I allow them to affect the choices I make. Every time I've made a choice to listen to this fear and hide myself, I've strengthened the hold these invisible chains have over me... But I make the choice to act from my heart, to choose to post the video that makes all the fears flare up the most... To show my bare self for over 300,000 people to see... Suddenly all of these things feel exposed for the illusions they are and it becomes so clear that I was the one chaining myself up all along. Cont. below

  • AS I BEGAN TO LOVE MYSELF - a poem by Charlie Chaplin
.
As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. 
Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY
.
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. 
Today I call it RESPECT
.
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. 
Today I call it MATURITY
.
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. 
Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE
.
As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. 
Today I call it SIMPLICITY
.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. 
Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF
.
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. 
Today I discovered that is MODESTY
.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. 
Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT
.
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally.
Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART
.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. 
Today I know THIS IS LIFE

  • I've been sat here reading your responses to my last post and I don't know what to say... Other than - is it possible to fall in love with 200 people at once?! Thank you... For baring your hearts and inspiring the hell out of me/all of us in the process. I hereby pledge to do my best to rise through fear and honour life/creativity in whatever way they may choose to come forth… Even if it shows up as doodling over the top of a photo I took of a pregnant monkey. I could go deeper… Ponder over my subconscious showing me transcendence of the monkey mind… The birth of new worlds, a new state of being, new things to come… But in reality, it was just really fun to doodle over mama monkey 🐵 Love you guys... truly

  • Let’s talk fear… My name’s Faye and I’m scared. I’m scared about a lot of things… But more relevant to this, I’ve been feeling scared to share - or even do - all of the new types of creative work I’ve been feeling called to do. I could come up with lots of reasons why, but when it really comes down to it, I’m scared of the magnitude of what it means to fully step into who I am… Because let’s face it, stepping into who we really are is the most terrifying thing any of us can do. And I’m sharing this with you because I know for a fact that there are so many of us feeling a call inside of ourselves to do more… To be more… To move into something that’s a truer, more authentic reflection of *you* - your hopes, your dreams, what you have to offer, what you know you’re capable of - and the steps… or should I say leaps… towards this can be paralysing. I feel you. I feel like I’ve spent the past 18 months being paralysed by fear. And do you know why it's so paralysing? Because what’s on the other side of that door is really fucking worth it. It wouldn’t be so scary if it wasn’t. So let’s take a deep breath, take a minute to shift our perspective and see fear for what it really is… An indicator for immense opportunity. Immense growth. Because the amount of fear you feel is directly proportional to the amount of growth… Promise… MAGIC waiting for you on the other side of that door. Which means if you’re feeling as terrified as I am, it’s time to get really excited… And get ready for the kind of free-fall ecstasy that can only follow the immense fear you feel when you’re about to jump out of that plane. You’re standing on the edge, looking down at the tiny houses below and you have a choice… Do you allow the fear to cripple you, or do you take the jump and see that fear for the illusion it was all along? The choice is ours… Just know you’re not alone 💚 The world is waiting :-)

  • It's been two whole months since I last spoke to you! So I'm going to wish you a very belated New Years, with hopes this year has been bringing you so much magic :-) A lot's changed since I opened up to you last year... For one, I've been feeling the light turn back on inside me for the first time in almost 18 months 😎 And the process has felt like being reunited with a really old friend... An old friend that has returned from life boot camp with a shit tonne of wisdom and really, really big muscles. For two, I've been spending the past month in India thanks to a last minute curveball from my heart. And for three, Costa Rica is no longer home and I'm now back on the road, following my excitement until I find the next place to ground down.
.
So this evening, I spent my final sunset here taking inspiration from the piece that came to me when I first started moving around the world. Reflecting on the unknown in the journey ahead... Reflecting on how I don't need to scribble with crayons/try to figure out how to colour in this piece. Nature perfectly colours it in for me... Better than my ideas and crayons ever could. Just like the nature in my heart will perfectly colour the journey in front me, better than my mind ever could 🦋 So much change! And I have a feeling I'm not the only one ;-) Giving you all the biggest, virtual hug.

Aurora whispers tales of freedom. If we never stray outside of our routine, we’re less likely to cross paths with the sources of inspiration that lead to new levels of growth. Instead, we must regularly find the motivation to expand our comfort zones and, in doing so, explore the outermost corners of our potential. As we adventure outside of the familiar and step into our hearts, we’re reminded of our true essence. The art of expanding echoes the limitless nature of our self expression.

  • I’m going to share my FIRST COLOUR COLLECTION with you! Oh yeahhhhh! After months of journeying into figuring out how the color thing works, a whole collection has taken shape. And after drawing a tonne of inspiration from the master colorista herself, mother nature, it’s no surprise the identities they’ve taken on have ended up revolving around the elements (with galaxies thrown in for good measure). The meanings of these pieces have always evolved out of things I’m going through and over the past few months I’ve been walking through what has at times felt like the depths of hell… As the other half of a journey into heaven. Each of the elements has carried with it some form of lesson/helping hand in handling the hell part. Which brings us to…
.
** Aurelia – Heaven **
Heaven on earth is waiting for us to relax into our hearts, release the burdens we hold onto and wake up from the dream of stress. Aurelia's inspiration was born out of the infinite wonder to be found in the skies and galaxies above us. When the problems of day-to-day life begin to weigh you down and rob you of your bliss, Aurelia invites you to gaze upwards and consider the vast beauty of the universe we live in, reminding us of the miracles to be found in each moment.
.
If you, like me, have a busy bee mind, this has been particularly great for managing that. When we’re in a state of stress (and when we’re going through more challenging times) the mind loves to take something pretty small and turn it into something unnecessarily BIG. Molehill > MOUNTAIN. Argument > END OF THE WORLD. So when I find my focus narrowing in on the self-perpetuating stress, I expand my focus outwards to balance my perspective. Really outwards. Like galaxy outwards. I go outside, look up at the sky and take a few minutes to contemplate the vastness of the universe we live in. How we’re chilling on a rock, floating around a ball of firey gas, existing in amongst an inconceivable amount of galaxies and stars. May seem corny and the mind will resist at first but look up at the sky - it’ll take you there! And envelope you in the wonder of it all if you allow it to 💫

P.S. Available to buy on my website! (Link in bio)

  • Had to play with the audio to make this work (barely!), but the scenery was too gorgeous to waste. The mountains have had so much to say... and play 🎵
.
This past week has, to my surprise, ended up being lots of hiking and stopping to play with the landscapes. Actually, I haven’t stopped to pick up a pen and draw once (which has been pretty inconvenient for my whole filling in the outline of Argentina idea). But we have to honour creativity as it wants to come through and Argentina was evoking MUSICA. So much musica. Out of this and my drum, I couldn’t put the ukulele down all week… All of this string inspiration coming through, song after song just pouring through as I felt the landscapes move through me (and at times heard them sing). This brought up a couple of interesting experiences. First being, a lot of the sounds reminded me of one of my favourite artists, Gustavo Santaolalla. To the point I had no doubt he must be Argentinian. It was almost as if I could feel the same movements that danced through his music working their way through me. It’s incredible to contemplate how different landscapes hold different sounds and melodies. The other being that I hadn’t picked up my ukulele for months - since I first started learning it actually - and I’ve never been able to play close to this standard before.
.
Which begs the question – where does our creativity come from? Is it something we move from or are rather moved by? Instead of placing the task of finding ideas and inspiration on ourselves, should we instead be focusing on showing up with the openness and surrender needed to be the conduits we are? Contemplations… I’d love to hear your thoughts. When I talk to other artists, it seems to be a common theme that the most successful things they’ve produced have always come from the times they really haven’t been trying. And if the act of creating is a playful reflection of the act of creating in life, what lessons does this hold for us in how we choose to show up in each moment? Sunday reflections… Hope you’re having a good one, my friends! The sun’s shining here in Buenos Aires and I'm excited to see what gifts the next leg of the journey brings :-) Love you!

  • (This deleted, so repost!) Thank you for the responses to my last post... I read them when I got off the plane and cried buckets in passport control haha. I was feeling extra fragile (I'll explain below) so the support was really welcome. Thank you. 🙏💚
.
It was my birthday the other day! I'd be lying if I said there hasn't been a voice in my head repeatedly asking, "what the fuck are you doing spending your birthday in the mountains by yourself?" Actually, the man at the desk asked me the same thing (in a MUCH more polite way) when I was checking in for my flight to Argentina. But I didn't really have an answer because I hadn't given it much thought - he looked at me sympathetically, said I was really brave, but if I'm honest I felt anything but brave. If I'm REALLY honest I spent the majority of my journey here crying like a big baby haha - if I'm really, REALLY honest I almost booked a flight back to the UK... Twice! But I knew I had to move through the fear and do it anyway because my heart was telling me to. A part of me also knows I’m in for something good when my old story freaks the fuck out like that. The tears felt reminiscent of holding onto my mum before going into my first day of school, or the first night I spent living in a wooden cabin in the jungle with an intense storm brewing outside. Both situations doorways to immense growth. When we throw ourselves into discomfort, we burn through old layers and make room for the new to rise out of the ashes. We weed out old stories hiding in the dark corners of our comfort and the death of them feels like an actual death. And my tears were full on SURVIVAL MODE. The fear I was feeling was the old part of myself holding on for dear life, literally scratching at the walls of my mind, crying for me to turn back. Well, I didn't! 🖕And the tears of fear slowly transformed into the deepest tears of gratitude. Illusions that home and safety is anywhere other than the worlds swirling inside me softly melting away through angelic release... "You are dying my sweet, but in the best way possible". This trip has, among other things, felt like a process of coming home. Best birthday present ever 💚 to me, from me!

  • Let’s talk depression! I’ve been wanting to open up to you about why I’ve been so absent over the last 6 months or so, but if I’m honest I’ve been struggling with what to say. Actually I'm still struggling with what to say! But I'm sat here waiting for my flight to Argentina, knowing in my heart I can't share all of the great moments I'm about to have without giving you the whole picture. Because every time Ive chosen not to open up about what I've been going through, that's potentially one more person that's going to feel alone in what they're feeling. And I know there are going to be so many people reading this that have all sorts of pain they don't know what to do with, looking to people on social media wondering why this person's life is so perfect in comparison to their own. But more than anything, I'm fed up of riding the inauthenticity train 👋 SO after sharing so many highs with you over the past few years, here's the other half to my beautiful whole! In all of its brutal honesty. For the past 6 months I've been sleeping on my mum's sofa, spending the majority of my days feeling really, really sad! So much pain I didn't know possible coming up, wave after wave, for what felt like no reason (+ no end). At points, I was crying for 3 days at a time with little moments of relief in between, other days I couldn't get out of bed. However awful this sounds, I wouldn't change any of this for the world. Yeah the pain sucks, but after so. much. resistance I've come to realise that it is in fact our biggest teacher, not something to be feared but something to be LISTENED TO, respected and LOVED. After I stopped resisting all of these waves, it felt like years of emotional weight and baggage were just falling off me. My flight's about to take off and I don't even know if this has come out right BUT I just want you to know that love and joy do not exist without pain and sadness. The more your experience of one deepens, so will your experience of the other. Whatever you're going through WILL pass just like this beautiful sunset at the end of a rainy day. But more than anything, you are not alone 💚 I love you
  • Let’s talk depression! I’ve been wanting to open up to you about why I’ve been so absent over the last 6 months or so, but if I’m honest I’ve been struggling with what to say. Actually I'm still struggling with what to say! But I'm sat here waiting for my flight to Argentina, knowing in my heart I can't share all of the great moments I'm about to have without giving you the whole picture.

Sahija is here to remind you of the power that lies in what can only be felt. Although we may lose the ability to listen along the way, every one of us has an inner wisdom, ever-knowing, ever-loving and ever-present, resting in amongst the foundations of who we are. As we develop the connection with ourselves and quieten the mind for long enough to listen, the noise of day-to-day life slowly dissipates from its corner and the voice within can be heard in its gentle whisper.

  • The biggest THANK YOU to everyone that's already ordered a world map print! We've been signing, numbering and packaging them up with so much loveeee over the past couple of days, ready to be sent off to their new homes
.
With so much LOVE because it's orders like these that make me doing what I love possible. Which is why I hope you'll all consider buying from small businesses as much as possible for Christmas this year! Instead of feeding into large corporations, your money goes into supporting all of the countless hours of work, sleepless nights, steps into the unknown and love and dedication that goes into making a small business happen. Your orders will be contributing towards someone's dream, which makes it a double Christmas present! Places like etsy.com have a whole treasure trove of artists/creators selling things made straight from the heart 💚
