I want to let you know: I’ve just published over on Patreon, my new podcast The Sovereign Womb – which is being released there, on Funkwhale/ open.audio, and over on my Hive.blog/ @clareartista.
For multifarious multi-dimensional reasons, I am keeping this Secret Pregnancy series (so far there are 10 episodes) in spaces that are more private and reciprocal.
I will possibly publish into a wider realm, like onto my blog here, in the future – but at this point, it is important to maintain the right energetic flows between myself and who I communicate with about my deepest work.
In the meantime, keep in touch with all that I’m creating, via my Patreon – or join me on Hive.blog (REAL social media where you get paid for posting, and there’s NO censorship)
This is a podcast on when do we give up our art? – When do we make a decision to no longer be creative? When do we put down our paintbrushes and crayons? When do we decide that we’ll buy whatever we need and never handmake anything again – or do we perpetually procrastinate over getting back to it one day…?
It is an exciting week as I actually sit down at my easel, following a dense few months away from it. Even after almost 40 years of steady creative practise, there’s a point where – e.g., now having to take my car off the road – even if the Universe is calling me to make Art, the constructed world around me is certainly withholding the reward for doing so! And this in turn, alongside heavy censorship for supposedly making ‘offensive’ posts that ‘go against community values’ – but which are of course, if you know me and my work, actually deeply meaningful, sentient paintings all about vulnerability and consciousness, healing and expansion….
We all make choices to hold back with our creative power; it’s inevitable, in a ‘reality’ where, if we’re not questioning everything all the time, then we are not recognising how our energy is being pulled from us consistently, in multifarious directions. If we do consistently question everything, then slowly-slowly we can begin to feel into how every small choice to accept what is being offered, accumulates into bigger and bigger negative effects of our spirit, power, vitality and wholeness being Eventually, we shut down; we feel numb or apathetic or uninspired to action.
It is a fricking amazing-exciting-beautiful journey getting out of that! As I discuss in this podcast, feeling fully into knowing what it is to be numb, neurotic and un-creative is the optimum stimulus to get us back into our Art – feeling the lack of any one thing (especially something so powerful and natural like our need to fully express ourselves!) is excellent motivation for reclaiming it.
I’ve hugely appreciated time away from my easel – time delving deep into what it would feel like to not create, and to give up all that I’ve made in my life – to just let it gather dust and mould and never share it again, and then consequently to quietly peter out myself…. This was a good exercise: I can now re-enter more fully the entire space that I was made to fill up here!
If you love this podcast, please consider supporting my work via Patreon and the Hive.blog – or sending a supportive tip/ gift via my Gifting page: every centessimo that I earn goes into subsisting co-creatively and gifting all that I make, and especially a steady ‘wage’ via Patreon allows me to pay bills and feed myself!
Here is a podcast for you, attached to this post, which you can also listen to over on Patreon. PLEASE NOTE that my Patreon name has changed to claregaiasophia (from claregalloway).
I fricking LOVE this subject – it is the What The F*** Is Art For?! podcast series, and this aspect of Art in particular is so very core to my lifework: our uniqueness – which is also our holiness, our divinely co-creative True Nature.
The subject of our inimitability is so very very pertinent these days, as more and more pulls us out of our uniqueness, and threatens our very nature – and the path back to who we really are seems awfully muddy-cloudy…
Art always tells us precisely who and what we are. It is our expression, just as our body tells us precisely who and what we are. Art, in its most primal and spontaneous sense, shows us what is inside – on the outside. This can help us reflect on what is internally – to see it in a visible form, a unique visual language – to better comprehend ourselves and to discern better where to go next.
I really want to elaborate on this subject, as there is just so much to unravel in our times; the mainstream is specifically pushing this agenda of homogeneity, as it must do in order to continue developing consumerism, materialism, and mass-production of things that distract us from what we really are/need/want.
As this agenda tightens and restricts us further, there is less and less acceptance of difference – even though the mainstream appears to be extending a warm embrace to all! The reality is that this acceptance is incredibly superficial, and anyone thinking, feeling, knowing, expressing or suchlike deeper difference – including any natural, wild or free aspects – is excluded. Not in the way that folks used to be burned as witches, but a much more subtle, firm, all-encompassing removal of privilege and relegating to the sidelines.
As a creator, I have witnessed this firsthand my entire life – from school to workplace, to socialising, to living in multiple cultures, to carving out a less-conventional path as an art-ist. The whole way has been painfully laborious, sidestepping limiting thinking and demands on me in return for being allowed to participate.
Journeying back to Divine Self in all our uniqueness – and without guilt, fear or pain around having to face ongoing penalties, aggressionlabour, projections, censorship, etc, etc, etc – is a heroic act. It possesses an alchemical power: the power to shift all things – culture, health, collective thinking, paradigms, and to ripple out through the Universe. Our every unique mark expressed, word spoken from core, labour made from nature and truth – extends its positive influence out beyond the boundaries of the physical, and echoes … perhaps even forever.
Do keep in touch dear friend – I LOVE being connected via Signal App, and am so blessed to know you and to be supported by you on Patreon… Many happy days to you, if you are in the colder months – here I’m cosying in, prepping the house for deep winter and revelling in being by the fire.
Here is a freshly-recorded podcast – the third in the What The F*** Is Art For?? series –for you.
These podcasts I create are taking more and more time to gestate, as they are going to/ coming from the heart of what wants to be revealed, released, realised and expanded – in relation to our purpose here on ‘planet Earth’.
As one who has dedicated a lifetime to Art, the expansion of consciousness, healing and Living In Gift – my mastery is becoming more tangible, more vital. My calling is to continue with this path, as I am able, following the signs that encourage me. There are many, many challenges coming up that seem genuinely insurmountable – and yet, each and every difficulty rises like a wave and I can choose whether to ride on it and have it carry me far… or be overwhelmed by it.
However, overwhelm is not an option now; living in Gift and listening to the elements, there is no room for not-being-in-tune-with-all-things. Not-being-in-tune sticks out like a thing that is really noticeable, and it simply asks to be attuned. So I attune it. Anything that piles up, simply calls to be un-piled-up – or washed or given away or recycled, or whatever the improvement is for that particular pile of things.
Life is immediate, clear and ringing with truth; all things have a more harmonious place, all moments are full and ripe, all options are open and possible, and all movement is towards solution.
Stepping out of work and into Art, from the construct and the grind into the Flow and the Right – is the mastery of our Art of Life; each of our lives are a work of Art. The very concept central to labouring, to the giving away of our time-energy-attention-resources in return for a few coins is an idea that distorts the Nature of reality.
In the podcast I go into these ideas immersively: you are most welcome to dive deep with me, and to join my work or my decentralised social media channels… See my Gift pages for more info on how to connect.
And please do share this podcast with someone you think will appreciate it – I need all the help I can get in sharing my work, as I have been heavily censored on mainstream for decades.
This is taking a serious amount of effort-full effort, pulling together failing tech and minimal resources…PLEASE SUPPORT MY WORK! As the electricians putter about amongst my very-outdated electrical wires, I managed to upload this podcast which I am uber-excited about!
This episode begins a new series, a long time in embryo: The What The Fuck Is Art FOR?! series. Real Art – NOT what parades and presents itself as ‘art’ – is the purest form of our Co-Creative Vitality. Here, I’m introducing the series, with an overview of what Art really is, how it represents hearth and heart, the centre of self and the centre of community. I speak to how our view of Real Art has been distorted to such a degree that we actually believe ourselves to be consumers and uncreative beings.
In some respect, this is true; our un-conscious behaviours dictate non-creative (i.e. either neutral or destructive) ripples – instead of expansive positive ones; all of our relationships are based in theft and competition, struggle and strife – instead of being mutually-beneficial and fruit-full.
This is changing rapidly, as millions of creative souls recognise what we’ve been sleepily participating in for all these years – and we begin to gather minds and hearts, resources and ideas, to bring everything out of tight spirals downwards, and into spiralling upwards. Our Divine Co-Creative Vitality is being returned to the centre of life – it is vital that we comprehend and participate in this process of reclaiming the rich treasure of our embodied Life.
PLEASE SUPPORT MY WORK! I am going through an incredibly scarce time, and am having to shut down various resources, technologies, the car, etc, as I don’t have funds for them… EVERY SINGLE dollar, cent and euro is extremely valuable, and allows me to continue sharing my work with the world. If like me, you have no expendible income every month, PLEASE share my Art, podcast and websites with someone who might appreciate what I share!
LOVE, immense gratitude and All Good Things To You!
This is another podcast around the profound process of clarifying our True Divinely-Conscious Identity, and the bringing together of aspects of the whole which have been pulled out of focus – in particular, by the aggressive and methodical suppression of women’s health and power and the sacred quality of Life itself, during the medicalised ‘birthing’ process.
Again, as I’ve presented lately; this podcast is a direct transmission of soulwork and expansive Co-Creativity – it can probably best be absorbed in a deeply reflective space, in Nature and / or in domestic alchemy. 🙂
Love and All Merit Gained,
PS Please consider rewarding the work that I am sharing here – see my Gift page and scroll down to find the most convenient method: it is most beneficial for me to receive long-term collective support via my Patreon and/ or LiberaPay campaigns
You may best benefit from the energetics of this podcast by listening in whilst in a quiet situation or doing some natural activity. The sharings that I create and gift are from full presence and activated sentience, and so are best absorbed from a similar high energetic state.
May All Merit Gained be transmitted to you through this message 🙏💐
This is an all-new format for my sharings here: I’m working with limited tech… this is bringing me more freedom and gifts, rather than any sense of scarcity (as conventional ‘logic’ would dictate)… It’s helping me see the possibility of a much-simplified online presence.
I’d love to invite you to listen in to this podcast with full bodymindspirit attention, whilst doing something active and/ or creative: these are living transmissions, intentioned towards your sentience and into our collective co-creative expansiveness.
You can keep in touch with me via my Patreon and support me via my Gifting page.
Here is my podcast around Manifesting Being Effortless! You can also listen via my Patreon pages: patreon.com/claregallowayand via the Aureal podcasting platform over on Hive.blog blockchain (if you don’t know about Hive, just ask me – it’s a far more social, private and rewarding media!).
There has been a big old fashion in the contemporary ‘spiritual’ world around manifestation – at the same time, much of the chitchat in the mainstream is a simplistic model of a polemic ‘mind vs material’ ‘reality’.
Unfortunately, this can be a total head**** for most folks, because it gets into a sordid entanglement of “So I’m creating everything around me – and I don’t like it and want to change it – but the actions I’m taking are making it even worse – which makes me think that I am inherently flawed/ bad/ crazy -which makes me feel that this ‘wrongness’ is making it impossible to stop creating this negative reality around me…..” etc, etc, ad infinitum.
This happens primarily because we’re deferring to an external authority around what is Right for us – unless we’re under our own authorship, aligned with Divine Intelligence and fully present in Now, we’re being steered off course.
Fortunately, the beauty of any negative spiral is that when we can recognise the difference between going into the negative vs going into the positive – we can then begin alchemically tweaking in the everymoment, and move into an upwards spiral instead. This way, we move into ‘manifesting’ what we ‘want’ much more effortlessly.
I speak here to how we can feel into the difference between suffering and expansion, and thus make the infinite tiny wee, easy choices in everymoment, which can free up our relationship-with-all-things, free our vitality and healthfullness, and even have material resources that we need come easily into our field, because we’re ready and accepting of them in the right timing.
Blessings on your everymoment! And please Gift my work via Patreon or Hive – it will empower my life, health and sharing!
This blog and (linked) podcast mark a shift in my online presence: a step into more private and contained space, in which my work is reciprocated with Gift… In the future, if I continue this blog, it will be text only. You can join me on either Patreon or the Hive.blog to listen to my podcast, and to see all that I share.I will not longer be publishing a general mailing list – and will do a monthly mailout only to my Patreon and Gift supporters.
This post marks the peak of the Sovereignty Series, and is on Breath. As you will know if you’ve been listening for the past few years, my work and life, spiritual path and healing have taken me deep into unveiling the agenda and uncovering the manipulations of the ‘legal’ world… I’ve expressed a vital feminine perspective around how human life is enslaved, always in the context of how we liberate our True Nature.
In the podcast, I go deeper into what our ‘original’ wound is; the strongest and most affecting harm that is instigated through medicalised hospitalised birth, onto innocent and extremely vulnerable young living beings: the stealing of their Right breath.
The recognition of this wound is important, in that we have to feel, make sense of and to fully integrate the residue of the violence that has been done to us in our lives; the multi-levelled violation we’ve all been exposed to is centred around separating us from spirit, shocking us into the fear-tension-pain spiral downwards, and keeping us (possibly for a lifetime) bound into the familiar discomfort of a system that is very literally feeding off our energetic body. The core wound is made through a seemingly (to an unsuspecting mainstream mind) disabling of our peace-full Natural movement from the world of water into the world of earth, by the cutting of our sacred life cord to the placenta prematurely and forcing our very first breath – which should be blessed, sacred, ceremonial – to be a desperate and painful gasp for survival.
However traumatising this is, the vital step – breathing our very first breath in this incarnation under our own volition, our own power and vitality – has only superficially been ‘taken’ from us. And the Truth is, that we have access to the tools to correct this trauma, in every moment of every day of our living breathing Life; so long as we are breathing, we have access to Divine Vitality, Intelligence – thus to infinite possibility.
Breath is the most perfect symbol of the Natural Truth that our divine heritance being within our grasp at all times – and that trulynothing can interfere between us and Source without our consenting (consciously or unconsciously) to it. In other words, nothing stands between us and Source other than our own trust in Nature, and our willingness to do the Right work to maintain our spirit-full well-being.
Becoming sovereign means fully comprehending our OWN authority to breathe: our very own capacity and power to fully empty and to fully fill our lungs (in that Divine order), and to activate our bloodstream, our brain, our Vital Force and spiritual vision. Our sovereignty is held in place, as it were, by our calm, strong, steady breath, which massages our organs and keeps all our energy in movement and harmony. Our mind should not have to intervene to ‘make us’ breathe more deeply or more fully: we should naturally find our breath by being more at ease with our self and with with our innate capacity to function beautifully.
There is much written and presumed as authority around breath and breathing – and few folks talking about how we explore our OWN relationship with breath: our unique, perfect and God-gifted Right breathing for each and every moment of our Lives.
There is also little being discussed around how each of our unique patterns of breathing connect with each others’ patterns of breathing – and how the sacred geometry of air, exposure to elements, cleaning of our bodies and the atmosphere, and harmonising of our collective energetic body and well-being – can be consciously co-created through our collective breath.
There might be some info in circulation around yoga, tantra and shared breath through intimate partnership, but this has little effect in our shared conscious creating. Meanwhile, the ‘mainstream’ confusion around the ‘dangers’ of ‘exposure’, and the psychosis of believing the air to be unbreathable/ life-threateningly contaminated – leaves everyone (who lets the media tell them what to think) vulnerable to awful negative influences of self-fulfilling prophecy. Fear leads to tension which leads to pain – and ultimately this dynamic leads to chronic tension and then progressively deteriorating illness. It becomes ‘normal’ to hold one’s breath, and to tense around others, or in close proximity to others.
The psyche imprints on the body very literally, as the mind is a higher vibration than the physical body; their relationship is supposed to function harmoniously, but our cult-ure conditions us to be tyrants even within our selves. Especially with something so profoundly core and essential as the breath – and particularly where there is significant locked-in trauma keeping vital parts of us numb, in tension and in chaos. A lot of folks, at least where I live, are still using a semi-permanent mask over their mouth and nose when around others (even when alone in cars or walking), and are habituated to avoid physical contact. This has immense negative consequences for all involved, which probably don’t have to be elaborated on here.
But what this is doing to our sacred breath, our ability to inform ourselves, to connect with and share with each other, to create and co-create harmony and vitality – is very wrong. Mental health, spiritual vision, and our very sovereignty is most violently challenged by our having been pulled into such a state of tension that we believe it dangerous to breath in the most essential ingredient of our Life: fresh air.
It takes a strong spirit to stand rooted and calm in such a context – with daily reminders that some of us are being manipulated and terrorised within our very own bodies; brainwashed to feel threatened simply by an others’ living presence.
To maintain a strong spirit in this distopia, we have to be breathing deeply, freely, wisely. Our body and biology need to be aligned with our mind and emotions, and working in symbiosis, for us to both immunise against the pervading psychosis, and to thrive despite being consistently exposed to toxic influences.
Our breathing will always inform us very directly around how well we’re doing in the face of the dystopia: where are we holding things in or refusing to breathe in new life or information? Where are we not taking the opportunity to let go of what needs to be released, as we breathe out? What is the mind repetitively presenting as we breathe out? How does our torso feel as we breathe more expansively? Are we breathing into the fullness of our body – and beyond it? Is our breath harmonised with our words – do we leave space to breathe before responding to others, or are we reacting in tension? Do we recognise our power to change and to affect the world around us, through our breathing Rightly? Or do we rest back into the familiar discomfort of the mainstream, whenever we lose conscious focus?
What happens when we align co-creative thought with each breath? Or instead of criticising/ labelling/ seeking or presuming problems with our physical being or with others – what if we Trusted completely in our capacity to heal, to find solution, to be in harmony with all things? What does it feel like to affirm and feel our Divine Co-Creative vitality, as we take each new delicious breath? And what does it feel like to Gift the Universe our breath, our energy, our Right action and our symbiotic relationship?
Perhaps the beauty of being so increasingly roused into tension-conflict around the breath – the very source of our Life – will take us to a point where it will be impossible not to recognise the psychosis of our separation… In my healing and expansion, just witnessing any symptom/ pain/ tension is the first step to moving and expressing it. Which in turn can lead us to a new, more consciously co-created, harmonious reality. It is not hard, it is not painful, and it is certainly not impossible: breathing is ours to use as the potent vehicle into Divine Alignment that is was always Gifted to us as.
All that exists on this ‘planet’ which appears to be contrary to the Universal Law of Co-Creation and Divine Harmony, can be overcome by a relatively superficial solution – our conscious breathing.Any agenda against our health, wealth and happiness is by definition obligated to expend enormous forces of effort and resources to keep us distracted and in contraction. All agendas are full of folks at every level living a half-life and feeling – on some level – the wrongness of their actions and lifestyle. Evil is bland, repetitive and profoundly unsatisfying.
Anything conspiring against Natural Law has NO REAL POWER in relation to our own, inalienable sovereign power of vitality and embodied knowing of what is Right… which comes simply, freely, in bliss – through our breath.
Blessings on your free, expansive, vitality-filled breath,
