Spirit as the Muse
A conversation with Alexis Cohen
Have you ever felt that nudge from spirit? Maybe it was loud and obvious or maybe it was a quiet knowing.
Today I’m sharing a conversation I had with one of my biggest mentors, Alexis Cohen, about the bravery it takes to listen to spirit and what opens up when we say, “Yes” to the vision we’re being called to bring forward.
In this episode we discuss:
How to create art that heals and transforms the world
Understanding creativity through the lens of birth
The process of creating the new earth and where we are at this time
The magic that comes when you say yes to spirit
What I learned about being a leader at Burning Man
The homecoming of knowing the divine feminine energy of the Great mother
A guided visualization to connect to the heart of the earth and see what she would like to create with you and a message from her
Alexis is the founder of Art Medicine, LLC. She’s a visionary artist and Art Medicine Guide. Alexis supports Art Medicine Makers to weave their gifts of creativity, healing and transformation into devotional practices, sacred bodies of work and Divinely Inspired Businesses. She is also a shamanic practitioner and healer practicing for over 15 years. She has a BA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State, and studied painting and drawing at the Art Academy and Center for Creative Exploration. She received her Shamanic and hypnotherapy certifications at Foundation of the Sacred Stream in Berkeley. She also supported 300 new souls entering the world during her decade-long career as a birth doula!
I was 38 weeks pregnant when I reached out to work with Alexis in November 2017. I knew it was time to bring my vision forward. I also knew I needed new levels of support than ever before.
Since then I've had the honor of holding sacred space with her and others as a mentor and teacher. It was on a VIP retreat with her and my friend Nancy that spirit nudged me to, “Gather the Voices.” That potent guidance led me to create Nectar. As I type all of this I am still in complete awe of how everything unfolded and forever grateful that I said, “Yes” to my vision.
So I’m curious if you gave yourself a moment here - is there’s something spirit is nudging you towards? Is there a way the spirit of our Earth mama wants to collaborate with you?
