Susannah Conway’s April Love 2015 Challenge

faces21

Starting Wednesday, April 1st! I’m thrilled to see what happens with dear Susannah’s April Love Photo Challenge + honored to be a part of it. Would you look at all these gorgeous and passion-filled women! (and then there’s little ol’ me…! ;)).

Ha—I was feeling a bit intimidated with the heat on to perform, but I finally overcame my stage fright… join the challenge and see me bare my soul on what self love and self-care mean to me personally, along with 28 luminous women (no charge and nothing sneaky—just a lovely community service project).

In Susannah’s words:

“The theme of the challenge, as you’ve probably guessed, is LOVE — love for ourselves, our lives, the world around us. LOVE expressed in gratitude and kindness. February might have Valentine but we’ve got April LOVE :)

If you’re ready to infuse a little more love into your life there are two ways you can play:

PART ONE: the Photo Challenge / PART TWO: the Daily Emails…
You’ll get a daily email containing personal stories (and confessions!), videos, tips and easy suggestions you can try yourself — the first email goes out Wednesday April 1st.”

Sign up here for April Love 2015!

For the Love of Mercury (and making your art!)

At the time of writing we’re about midway through the current Mercury Retrograde period, but I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while! I decided to push it out today in celebration of my “Mercury Love-In” Sale (30% off private sessions and the Soul-Fire Code). Hope it helps! Enjoy. :)

The Mercury Retrograde period is generally misunderstood as a period where the challenges of communications and operating on the earth plane are intensified. In truth, this is the very best period for intuitive creative souls to thrive in, because it offers us an opportunity to do our deepest work. It can also help with providing a wonderful sort of energetic force shield from the energies of the world.

While so many others are busy running around like chickens, struggling with getting things done the way they usually do, you have this extra keen ability to operate from an even deeper place than usual. Your true Soul Power is magnified and welcomed into play. Continue Reading →

The Freefall…

white-cherry-blossom-tree-by-satyacolombo.com

 

I’m grateful to have loved another so deeply
that I never hit ground in the freefall.
Maybe a few wanton branches along the way,
but nothing I couldn’t handle.
That kind of love is rare…

And even though I’m back on earth now,
I can still feel the love cushioning my feet.
Like some kind of magic cloud slippers
that keep me from falling
all the way down.

If you ever love someone like that,
it’s easy to set them free.
Just be willing to trust you are safe.
To know that no matter what,
you will be caught and held
in the arms of Love,
if not in your beloved’s.
So that you really can freefall…

Blissfully,
without fear,
forever.

Jump…?

 

Do the Work That Matters.

That woman in the red dress — at the Acropolis in Athens

 

I was burning so hot on all ends I couldn’t see straight. It was this great sadness in my heart that needed to be shared. So I made more art…I was driven, it was good. But the pain was still there and in some ways the pressure was growing even stronger…

I think I speak for at least a few thousand million of us here on earth when I say:

*We’d like to see and know more of who you really are.*

What is the song your spirit cries to be sung? What holds you back from your song? What holds you back from exploring and expressing this Creative Self?

Your heart and soul burn hot. Follow that trail inside to the creative expression your Spirit longs for and you might find something good. Vital. Basic. Necessary… –let these exchanges of personal and creative exploration open the relief valve to your creative furnace. Open the floodgates. Break the flow. Open the words that long to sing in conversation…

with yourself,

with the one you love,

with all of us.

Or…

just keep on waiting for the right time.

Amy Palko: Practical Magic and Connecting with the Goddess {Soul Rebel Series}

This is the third in a series of interviews with Creative Soul Rebels—in particular those who are transforming society through the calling of their Spirit. I’m doing this primarily to get a better sense of how these remarkable friends and colleagues bring their magic to the world, but also as a form of “continuing education” for my own healing and brand consulting + development work.) 

Amy Palko’s Practical Goddess-Infused Magic:

In this 15-minute interview you’ll learn…

  • Practical and straightforward guidance on connecting with the Goddess(es) in your daily life to support your life goals and work — nuts and bolts of Amy’s approach, and how to cultivate a closer relationship with the goddesses and spirit guides that would like to work with you.
  • The delightful story of Amy’s journey in learning to work with her own goddess guides.
  • Amy’s approach to Practical Magic, based on her own experience of fusing masculine structure and form with feminine flow to express what she’s here to deliver through her business. Finding the balance between these two different aspects.
  • How she went from wanting to be a published author to creating her own publishing house, Red Thread Voices — “where the wild woman’s howl is given free rein to be articulated in the world.”
  • And the first release from Red Thread Voices—FROM REVOLUTIONARY LIPS—why she did it, and why it matters!

Enjoy! :) Continue Reading →

It’s Never Too Late.

At play in the fields... Kotor, Montenegro

At play in the fields of Love… Kotor, Montenegro —@satyacolombo

 

It’s never too late to live the life you have imagined. The greatest work has always been created at the edge of impossible. The greatest artists have all found their voice “well past their prime.” The great spiraling galaxies of existence are your playground. Have some fun with it! Start where you are and begin modeling the future you’re stepping into now. Like an architect or painter, your life experience is your palette, your imagination the brush and the world your canvas. Make it count!

Start with what you have. Make some good. Build your dream house and start living in it. Let your life become that marvelous work of art we’ve all been waiting for.

We’re worth it.
;)

Love,
Satya

The Edge Flow Project Is Live! (Changing the World From Inside Out)

edge flow cover wide

After nearly four years from the time this project began, EDGE FLOW is finally here. (It’s been quite a haul!)

“The Edge Flow project brings together dozens of leading thinkers, artists, social scientists, healers, entrepreneurs and change makers to reflect on how personal transformation and creative innovation can help solve the single greatest crisis we now face as a global society. Taken as a whole they give testament to a strong new narrative of positive change emerging around the world:

In pushing the edges of creative exploration, self-knowledge and personal empowerment, we become a stronger force for good—driving innovation and social change in the world. And this simple truth may well be our greatest hope in saving our civilization from extinction.”

I’m overjoyed to see this work released into the world, at a time when we need this uplifting message more than ever to counter the dark and destructive forces at play in the world.

The artist’s hand holds a spiritual tool of evolutionary vision, and every creative act empowers every other creative act. We can look at the magic, mythic, rational, integral and transcendental thrust of art history and see the entire arc of the evolutionary consciousness going on when we look back through our history. The painter channels the creative force into the artifact, and this artifact then becomes a battery…ready to zap the viewer into a new way of seeing the world.” —Alex Grey, Cosmic creativity (TEDxMaui)

The EDGE FLOW ebook can be downloaded here. The iBooks version is underway. Here’s to creative joy, flow and the positive transformation of society.

Love,
Satya

No More Eyes Wide Shut — We Must Out-Create the Horror With Creative Strength

eyes wide open

Street art in Athens — October 2014 — #eyeswideopen

 

The truth of injustice in this world is almost too horrific to look at. Like the Tom Hanks character in Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut”, the absolutely confounding madness of what we see in our world causes us to wander through our lives in a state of denial or confusion about what’s really happening around us.

In my preface to the forthcoming EDGE FLOW collaborative book project, I wrote:

The thing is— the truth is frightening, ugly…and just plain horrible to face. If you read the world news on any given day, it’s clear that humans are pretty wretched beings. Selfish, self-absorbed, despotic, fundamentalist, racist, sexist, murderers, baby killers and psychopaths. And those among us who are most needed to show up, to step up our game and do what we can to make a difference—the highly creative, empathic, change-oriented, good-hearted, mindful people—we’re often the ones who suffer most deeply from seeing all this. And so we turn away.

How often have you heard these words, or told yourself even: “It’s just too much, I can’t handle it!” Or, “I haven’t watched the news in years, it’s too depressing.” But it’s only because we’re not strong enough in ourselves that we can’t handle this stuff. Because when you have a stronger handle on the truth of who you are, and can stay grounded in that longer, you can really see all this stuff and not let it be a complete headf*ck. We need that, so we can roll up our sleeves and say,

“OK, I see what’s going on — I know I can’t fix it all myself, but my heart is pulling me to do _this_, and I feel pretty strongly that it might make a difference. And I can handle this, I got this….”   

And then you do it. And it does make a difference. And it’s good.
