i am transformed

I am transformed by Kathy CrabbeIt’s transformation time! I am in the middle of a transformation. It feels like a weight is being lifted off my shoulders as I release my Creative Soul Readings and the God-like status of supreme know-it-all-ness that goes with it.  I became a psychic because I wanted to develop intuitively, and I did. ‘Been there, done that.”  I’ve also been a teacher and yes, both avenues worked very well for me and for my students/clients, but right now I choose to be in-between, and not offer all that I had before.

I am in development (transformation) and I am developing a Creative Soul Program which is truly unique and I can feel it’s special-ness. It’s like a sanctuary where folks will come to release their baggage and clutter and hone in on their spiritual, creative soul to see what develops – a completely personal journey.  I am sharing my own journey on this blog – using myself as an example.

*Dear Goddess I know I’m on the right track*

I am transforming into a butterfly. It’s light and airy. I touch down gently through my work, to inspire, educate, connect, and all I do reflects that.

*I am becoming more me in every way*

Kathy Crabbe Guiding Your Creative Soul

i am a conduit for the Divine

I am a conduit for the divineAs summer chugs ever forward I remind myself daily that I am but a tool in the hands of the Goddess. These days I’m working hard (or playing hard…same diff) at developing a new Creative Soul Program involving my Lefty cards; all drawn with my non dominant left hand.  I am walking the talk as I do the program myself to make sure it works and works well, so that when I share it with all of you, it will be perfect and exactly what YOU need for your own growth and development.

This work is accentuated by the spiritual growth work I’m doing such as the classes and mentorships I’m undertaking with Francesca De Grandis (Faerie Shamanism) and Marisa Anne (Creative Thursday). I’m also studying the books of Paul Selig and am finishing up a 40 Day Prosperity Program.

I hope that your own summer/winter is equally productive and just to let you know, we’re all in line for a major boost astrologically from Jupiter, the planet of expansion, which has just entered the sign of Leo.

Sparkly Blessings!

I am beautiful in my own way

This beauty is killing me by Kathy Crabbe

This beauty is killing me by Kathy Crabbe

High heels, bikini waxes, botox, boob jobs, nips and tucks, fat suction, girdles, bleach, dyes, injections, starvation, bulimia, the list of beauty treatments, or rather, torture treatments that we endure to ‘look good’ go on and on and are absolutely insane, not to mention expensive.

We all have our excuses for why it’s worth it and we endure. Well, this card (from my upcoming Lefty Affirmation Deck) is asking you to be honest and question ALL of it.  Make a list of all the beauty treatments and accessories that you use and that you know, deep down are not good for you even though society and your vanity tell you otherwise.  Discuss this list with other women and start making choices in YOUR favour putting YOUR health, wholeness and holiness first.

Affirmation: “I am beautiful in my own way.”

The text and image above are from my upcoming Lefty Affirmation Deck.  Prints of “This beauty is killing me” can be purchased in my shop.

About the Leftys

The Lefty Series was painted with Kathy’s non-dominant left hand; the intuitive hand. While turning forty she lost all interest in painting with her right hand because frankly she got bored. It was time to explore new worlds and be creative in new ways.

 “Drawing with my left hand was slow going at first, but felt right in this fast paced, hyperkinetic world we  live in. I painted with watercolors because of their fluid simplicity which best expresses the Lefty soul.”

The Lefty Series has evolved over the years through zines and chapbooks, oracle readings, a Hollywood appearance with Michelle Shocked, museum shows, awards etc, but, most importantly, the Leftys show us how to trust our intuition, break through creative blocks, and take a chance to speak up for what matters most.

“Juicy Alive! Your Leftys make me feel like I’m not alone. They restore something in me…make me feel sane again.” ~ Tangerine

My body dances me home (a channeled text)

Crazee Janice - a Lefty drawing by Kathy Crabbe

Crazee Janice – a Lefty drawing by Kathy Crabbe

Firstly, get all that mumbo jumbo religious dogma out of your head. We are entering the Earth; deep, deep, deep within, whilst maintaining a single silver thread to the surface.

Knock, knock…is anybody home?

Is this the end? Or the beginning? Or just more talk, talk, talk?

We ask you three times and three times you answer: “of nothing, of nothing, of nothing.”

You feel unworthy. You feel drained. You feel unlucky.

Then a Lefty appears, one of the many hundred. She calls to you and you come home.

This drawing and text was channeled by Kathy Crabbe and is included in her upcoming Lefty Oracle Deck.  In the meanwhile, prints can be purchased in the shop.

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Lefty Deck which I’m working on right now.

Kitty in love

Kitty in Love painting & necklace by Kathy Crabbe

“Kitty in Love” painting & necklace by Kathy Crabbe

Kitty in Love is my newest commission and is painted with acrylics on reclaimed pine board. It comes with a matching necklace.  My client cried when she first saw it and I take that to be a good sign!  She also suggested I paint more kitties in this style which is quite a bit more realistic than my usual style. I tried to explain that it’s just not my thing and that doing so wouldn’t be true to my nature.  It got me thinking about how approval-seeking is just not how I, as an artist operate. I must paint first from within, expressing my heart and soul, because that’s what it’s all about for me. That’s also why I paint in so many different styles. It’s because it’s how I’m feeling on that particular day and it’s also most likely just what I needed to hear and see. I think that this quote explains things quite well.

We want you to understand at this moment that eighty percent of what you are doing in your life has been motivated by a need for approval from someone else, or a cultural belief that what you need to do is a certain thing, or by a certain time…How can you be in your own knowing when you are operating from truths that are misaligned to your requirements for growth?  ~ Paul Selig, “I Am The Word”
