Living as an empath and artist means feeling … deeply. I absorb energy all around me, and I am often swept up into ecstatic highs and incredible despairing lows.. I talk a lot of the light…which I am dedicated to finding and seeking in my life because I can also feel the dark shadows licking at the fray of my days.. tempting me with the escape and dangerous intoxication of depression. I am so very blessed to have woken to being an artist.. it has saved my life many times. Having this gift for channeling my emotional experiences into creative form allows for the movement of energy to pass through me. Today I give thanks to the powers that be for blessing me with this ability.
