Dearest Creative Souls,

I hope this finds you well, and that you have finally settled into a nice groove for 2018!

FIRST AND FOREMOST, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO?

I'd LOVE to hear what you've been working on, so when you're feeling inspired, please COMMENT BELOW and let me know how I could support you!

I'VE BEEN DEEP IN CREATION MODE TO GET SOME CREATIVE GOODNESS TO YOU

If you haven't heard yet, I myself, have been slowly waking up from the winter slumber and have been working on a pretty deep and meaningful creative project behind the scenes.

Lucky Cat has been knocking at my door and so I've been painting my heART out and connecting with my most precious of muses (who is my beautiful 2yo daughter) and journeying through the world of creating of Oracle Decks. Art + Intuition...my two favorite things!!

And after having coming down from from the entrepreneurial high that was the Fearless Launching Live Retreat with the smart, beautiful and genius of a woman that is Anne Samoilov, I also have other ideas brewing in my head about how we (meaning you and I and our circle of creative soul sisters) could get together and paint this year.

Yes, online, and I'm also thinking of hosting something in person...something along the lines of having a LIVE painting retreat on the coast...ooooooh!

(Did I just say that out loud?...The planning part is still in its infancy stage, so I will certainly keep you posted!).

LASTLY, THE CREATIVELY FIT COACHING CERTIFICATION TRAINING IS HERE!

I am excited to announce to you that I am a new contributing artist to Whitney Freya’s Vision Quest and Creatively Fit Coaching Online Program.

Whitney asked me to film an instructional video for the WATER module of Vision Quest (you journey through the 4 elements in your Vision Quest with her) and I had a BLAST creating the video and sharing my own personal painting practice.

I wanted to recommend that you learn more about Whitney’s upcoming Creatively Fit Coaching Certification (starting February 15th, 2018) and Vision Quest (starting 2.22) by connecting with her in TWO really fun ways!

Happy New Year Party People!!

So I've been somewhat in hibernation mode this fall/winter, as I have been deepening my intuition and inviting my muse(s) to play with me for the creation of my latest creative project.

It's no coincidence, Maneki-neko (Lucky Cat) has been showing up for me, signs, signs, everywhere, on my radar, knocking at my door. So guess who is going to be my SACRED SYMBOL for this year (though, I’ve already tapped into that energy long before the New Year)?

Meow!!

Consider this a little spoiler alert for the creative process for my new Oracle Deck...I can’t wait to share more with you!

Paint Your Way to Cosmic Bliss during this New Moon + Solar Eclipse

mandala painting meditations with desiree east Hello Dear Creative Soul,

I hope you have been enjoying your summer...it's caaah-razy how fast it's flown by!! I just wanted to give you a special invitation to paint at the canvas, especially if you feel a need to take a break from the end-of-season summer chaos.

Carve out some self-care time for YOU, my friend.

With all that has been happening in the world, this would be a perfect time to take a digital vacay and reflect upon the healing that we all crave in our hearts. I too, have been taking much needed mini-digital breaks. As much as my heart aches, I have been having challenging, yet meaningful conversations with loved ones on how we, as individuals can make a positive difference in this ever-evolving world we live.

Even though overwhelming feelings of [fill in the blank]: helplessness/apathy/fear/anger/sadness/confusion/regret/guilt,etc. might reside in our hearts (and these emotions are quite healthy to acknowledge, by the way...they are significant aspects of the healing process), we always have a choice to live from a place of LOVE.

 

JUST REMEMBER:

Your heart is strong and (on a deeper, cellular level) knows peace.

Yes, we are global citizens of Mother Earth, yet healing begins from within.

When we heal our hearts, we become stronger.

When we become stronger, we reconnect with that deep peace within our hearts.

And with that deep connection to peace within our hearts, our LOVE expands, and the world will know peace.

IF YOUR HEART IS CRAVING PEACE:

heartpulseThe New Moon and Solar Eclipse are coming and these energetic events are powerful for healing and creativity. art

A Lovely Painting Workshop for Mom

mandala meditations with artist desiree east - square logo

Doing some last-minute shopping for Mother's Day? I just wanted to drop a quick little note and let you know that I have a special offer for all the Moms (and daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmas, doggy + cat mamas, too!!).

As an artist and new(ish) mom, I know in my heart that having a regular painting practice has been an essential tool and wonderful way to ZEN out and gain much needed peace and quiet in my life. I was thinking of all the beautiful moms in my life and thought, "If every mother had a chance to connect to that CREATIVE  and NURTURING part of herself that comes so naturally to her, but doing it at the canvas, as a gift to herself, what a beautiful gift that would be!"

If you're doing any last-minute shopping or would love to send a gift from afar, I have a very special offer just for MOMS  If you think your mom would enjoy an online creativity coaching experience with me, please hook her up!! Offer ends on May 13th, 2017 at MIDNIGHT.

I have coached women virtually from around the world, and the experience of helping women create a sacred 'studio' space in the comfort of their homes, while we connect globally has been pretty amazing.

I promise, I will LOVE her up and take very good care of her!!

Please click the link below and purchase as a gift for your mom (and if you want to treat yo' self, please do!!):

Mom's Day Gift - Mandala Meditations Painting Program

Please COMMENT BELOW if you have any questions, and I'll be in touch soon about upcoming painting sessions this summer. Creative Art Meditations was a HIT, so you'll be hearing more about that, too. Have a wonderful weekend!!

how practicing the art of letting go gives you more freedom

Let's talk about the idea of detachment for a sec and explore what 'freedom' really means.

Just several years ago, I painted a mandala that I absolutely LOOOOOVED.

And there was this moment in the not-so-recent-past (last weekend), where I was invited to 'Rise Above' with my mentor and dear soul sister, Whitney Freya, and paint my wings (You might be familiar with the beautiful angel wings of artist Colette Miller, whose brilliant work could be seen in cities around the world, for The Global Angel Project).

I was called to paint BIG. As I looked around my studio to see what I could find, my eyes immediately rested upon my gorgeous mandala painting.

The (left-brain) thoughts started barreling into my brain...my ego was taking over...

"It's so prettttty...I don't want to ruin it.

But, I use it all the time for the background, for my video interviews...what am I going to use now??

People love that painting...I always get compliments on it..."

AND THEN my muse decided to pop in for a quick throw down:

"This is it Dez. You wanted to EXPAND to feel that sense of ABUNDANCE and FLOW...here's your chance to practice this on your canvas. Practice what you preach, girl. Go BIG..."

So I'm in the process of painting over this beautiful mandala that's been part of my life...letting go of perfectionism is hard, especially having a designer's mindset, where everything has a specific place, purpose and function.

As a mom (of now a toddler that pretty much rules my life with 24/7 hours of spontaneous wild-child energy), I've been practicing the art of detachment with a whole new set of eyes.

I *thought* that for many, MANY years that I embodied the gift of what it truly means to be laid back. I once had that gift of being ZEN (and like to think that I've still got it).

So in honoring 'what was' and inviting in 'what is becoming', I paint. In honor of a definition of what freedom looked like (externally) to what freedom REALLY means (internally), I am ready to go BIG.

To LET GO of what used to define me and open up to a life that is SO much bigger and meaningful than I have ever imagined.

I'm ready.

How to Create Space for the Holidays

Aloha, creative souls! So, I've been taking LOTS of breaks from the social media, as of late, especially since all of the hoopla surrounding the presidential election.

I mean, I had to. For my own sanity.

Did you hear? Someone actually called me the "c" word for mentioning my stance on racism (my stance, being that I will not tolerate it). *control-alt-delete* So, long sucka! That was the first time I've ever had to 'unfriend' a long-time friend on Facebook.

Anywaaaaays...

I also kind of had to take a break from all of the recent cyber sales over Thanksgiving Day weekend...oh my gosh, internet people (although, I do admit I have been guilty of this in the past). You know how in the old-school days, when you would walk out to your mailbox to check your mail, and when you opened it, ALL of the junk mail would just kind of spill out haphazardly into your hands?

Well, that's kind of what my email inbox was like, except it was my brain that was spilling haphazardly out of my ears. SO much information.

And then, all of the planning for the holidays. The shopping, the dinner parties, the travelling, the this, the that, and the other thing.

So, I've been thinking...why do we do this to ourselves? It really doesn't have to be so busy, busy, busy. Really it doesn't.

If you're willing to play, I'd love to encourage you to, simply, simplify ONE area of your life that might need some breathing space. Remember, it's perfectly okay to gracefully say, "No" to the things that don't resonate with you anymore.

Honor down-time. Less is more. Quality over quantity.

Honor this season of slowing down, turning inward, reflecting, and just being.

(And, of course, I have to add this one to the mix): 

Honor your creative spirit. Being creative is the best way to sloooooow down time. It's like time almost stops, when you get creative, doesn't it?

So, if you feel like your holiday nerves are getting to you, here are some of my fave ways to take that stress factor down a couple of notches:

1) My fave go-to: be like a hermit and do this ONE simple thing to calm the {bleep} down

2) Throw your camera phone out the window and learn some old-school camera hacks

3) Grab a bottle of wine, chill with your BFF's, and dream a little dream

less-noise-more-space

AS FOR ME, I PROMISED MYSELF TO FINISH 2016 WITH LOTS OF SMOOCHY KISSES FROM THE BEACH BABE AND TO EASE INTO 2017 WITH GRACE.

WHAT WILL YOU DO TO GIFT YOURSELF WITH QUIET SPACE THIS SEASON? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.
