Day 5 of 40 Day Road to Creativity!!!

I should be in bed right now but I got to share the BEAUTIFUL WORKS of SistahGoddess Marilyn Fontaine. Sometimes you just meet your Sistah - you know a person you KNOW you have met in a previous time and space - maybe blood related in some Ancient upline of Ancestors...who knows...I started to speak with Sistah Marilyn on Facebook and from there I realized we had much in common - she in facts lives the creative life I visioning for myself. Great Artist, Powerful Healer, and Teacher...

I was lurkin Marilyn's Esty shop and I had to get these beautiful Elemental Cards cause my Mama Goddesses are featured...

When you started working with art and healing?
I originally trained in Art, Design and fashion but left that to get a 'normal' job that took me away from my soul urge. After joining the New Age movement at 21 i started to use healing and self awareness to heal my own issues however I rarely returned to paints until some years later.

I was reunited with Art about seven years ago when I attended an Inner child workshop (amazing for healing work). I then used these tools within my practise with clients and on workshops. However I did not use this as much for myself until I joined an online book group that really brought out my creativity again this helped me and heal my own issues, it was like being reunited with a part of my soul. The more I create the more energy I get and awareness.

What about your work? Why do you do it?
My work is a combination of creativity and healing, I am a Spiritual lifestyle coach that uses holistic modalities such as Reiki /Aromatherapy/Body reading/Colour therapy and Inner Child training. I also run workshops on Personal Development and online courses.

I don't have a job I have a lifestyle choice that involves various disciplines that I happen to get paid to do. So I work outside the box why i do my work is never a question its like this career chose me I love being able to give others that I work with unconditional positive regard but what I have also learned that I have to give that to myself . As there are too many wounded healers need care.

My main purpose now is to Create and experience myself and share whatever comes out with others. I created my own affirmation cards, a book, and now handmade journals. I never planned what the content would be they just came. My creativity is calling me to spend time creating as much as I spend time healing so it can speak to me and to the world.

I am in the process of finishing my work/playbook called the Creative Healing Playbook which is a playbook for women to set goals to heal, this is a functional book that requires work and exploration. This should be released for International Woman's Month.

I am available for spiritual or creative coaching helps one to tap into their own inner creative magic, instead of them having a passive role within their healing.

Where can a SistahGoddess reach you?
I can be contacted on or for more information please check my business blog or my main site

Creativity is an entity of its own even though I became an Holistic Therapist Art and Creativity called me home, as Clarrisa Pinkola Estes says in the book Women who run with the wolves "Do your art. Generally, a thing cannot freeze if it is moving. So move keep moving". business blog

Isn't she such a Goddess!!! I am learning from Marilyn to go the course and do what you love and LIVE IT!!

Lastly but not least - the affirmation for today...AND how on time it is!
5. Money is not my supply. No person, place or condition is my supply. My awareness, understanding, and knowledge of the all-providing activity of the Divine Mind within me is my supply. My consciousness of this Truth is unlimited, therefore, my supply is unlimited.

A song comes to mind about this affirmation, More to Life by Fertile Ground on the Seasons Changes album...

Peace and Hugs,
Sis. C
