My Favorite Form Of Creativity
Creating my reality, writing, poetry, making videos, dreaming, and songwriting.
Your favorite blogger(s)? Mention them! – Oh boy, that’s a tough question!! Honestly, every soul here on WordPress has such a unique gift to offer, and such a beautiful expression of their spirits. And each blogger is my favorite for that reason, because what could be better than the freeing expression of soul?
How do you handle stress? – I usually take some time in silence, because in stillness I can clear my head and realize that “stress” is just a label and perception. When I change my perception, I can change what “stress” means to me. Or, I might listen to a song and just let my thoughts wander. Or I’ll get on my computer and write something, writing always takes me to a zone that lets me forget everything. I might work out, because it takes me to a different zone of pushing through pain which is exhilarating. Or I’ll just talk to my mom, because she always has the answer to everything! 😁
How many languages can you speak? – The language of the Universe, English and a bit of Spanish. I wish it was better, but, as long as I can speak the language of the Universe (love, and the expressions of my intuition/higher self), I’m good. 😊
What’s your advice for writers? – Writing is a journey of its own, you will grow and get to know yourself in so many ways. My advice would be to always write vulnerably and honestly no matter what. It doesn’t matter what you post or not, just always write for YOU. Writing lets me connect to the Universe in me and it lets me understand all my emotions; it lets me tap into the zone of feeling rather than thinking. So, when you write…don’t worry what might be socially “correct” or what will please someone, write for you and write to fulfill that something within that finds comfort in your fingers meeting the keys or pen meeting the page.
What is one of your favorite hobbies or things to do? – I’m going to branch out here and say daydreaming. When it’s just me and my thoughts, I love to see what I can create up there in my dreams.
Where is your favorite place to be? – Sedona AZ, my bedroom and the tennis court or gym.
If you didn’t have to sleep; what would you do with the extra time? – That’s such a great question. I would probably get really obsessed with meditation. Because meditation is the closest waking thing to the dream state, and it would rejuvenate me without even sleeping.
Which is your favorite blog post or poem of mine and why? – Life is Life. Or The beach. I love the simplicity, but powerful truth of Life is Life. And The beach has such vivid imagery and striking beauty. Let’s be honest, all of your posts are truly incredible! Your amazing sketches, creative riddles and original stories are such a beautiful expression of YOU and that’s what makes you special!!!
What’s your dream in life? – To fulfill my purpose and my soul’s mission here in this life. In a world that’s constantly testing us and begging us to fit in, to align with fear and to forget our true power – my soul’s mission here is to raise the frequency of Earth and to help you remember that you are truly fearless and free and that IS your power!
No worries if your site is award free, just wanted to share your beautiful work and how much I appreciate you!!!
What makes you smile?
Do emotions guide life, or does life guide emotions?
Is the present moment or imagination the best place to be?
What do you believe in?

What has been your most successful post? Why do you think it was appealing? – versions of me, has been my most successful post so far. I think it appealed to people because of its relatability and honesty. It talks about wanting to know every version of me from every timeline, dimension and space. And I think a lot of people want to know those answers too. After I wrote it, I felt this weight off my shoulders of, like, being ok in the unknowns of not knowing every piece of my soul…I think the final line hopefully gave many people that feeling too.
What is your favorite piece of technology that you own? – My phone. I create a lot on my phone, just about everything.
How do you attract new readers? – Honestly, I just trust the Universe in whatever comes my way. I don’t really go looking for people, and I don’t try to attract new people. I write for me and to fulfill my soul’s call. People come when you let go of needing the numbers or stats to be higher…letting go is the key to most things in life. I’ve been blessed to have met some truly amazing people here; the Universe always connects the vibrations/lights that are meant to connect!
What makes you cry? – Oooo, that’s a tough question. Crying is a pretty spur of the moment thing, in my opinion. Love and fear would be my answer – when I really care about something or someone, love will always have its challenges and lessons…it ends up making the love more real. And fear because its energy is opposite of creation, opposite of my soul. When I feel it, it’s definitely something a tear can shake off.
Which Social Network do you check first? Why? – I’m only on WordPress and We Heart It, but I definitely check WordPress first. I’m seriously into dreaming so, I keep my phone in a different room when I’m asleep and I wait at least 20 minutes before checking in the morning.
Would you rather give up bathing for a month or give up the internet for a month? – Oh gosh, that’s so hard. I’d love to be one of those people who easily says the internet, but that’s not very authentic. 🤪 I am an athlete, so, not bathing for a month would be really really bad. 😂 I truly can’t decide on this one, ughh.
What was the last show you watched? – The Great Food Truck Race and Schitt’s Creek…a little food, drama and comedy is my favorite!
No worries if your site is award free, just wanted to share your beautiful work and how much I appreciate you!!
