photo-nature-heart-healingI ‘ll be offering my breakthrough coaching blend with the tarot at the Spring Holistic Fair organized by the Shamanic Community Gathering NY. Find more about my coaching programs here:

Nefeli is an excellent coach with angel cards!! I have consulted her on many occasions and always felt more in touch with my feelings after the consultation. And the fact that she could do it over the phone or virtually makes it even more convenient to get clarity of mind. I highly recommend her coaching guidance for getting a better perspective

What we’ll do: Images can inform, enlighten, delight, and make our world a better place. Anyone can create them, but skill is required to express a personal vision. This course focuses on expressing your personal vision through a blend of visual art techniques. It is about introducing you to the principles of the photographic composition with discussing reference imaging of Master classic works and becoming inspired to create your own design with collage paper and stencil. You will learn about the graphical elements of the visual representation, compositional techniques, and will be guided to complete your project to take home. You will come away with a new understanding of design and image making, and how to use art material to discover and, or, built on your personal vision. Artistic skill is not required to participate in this expressive workshop.

Wishing you a loving, fruitful and healthy year ahead!

Lifestyle Lessons from Design and Usability

I was outside a movie theatre in Rhode Island New York when I saw this innovative bike rack. It is made from old film projector reels welded on a metal pole. The screening of a film on that type of a projector is obsolete, although there are a handful of art house theaters in New York City and Los Angeles that support it. Using the analogy of the projector reel in the picture, we can rid of old thoughts that contaminate the mind and re-design and upgrade ourselves this year, with the goal to achieve wellness.

How can we stop the thought of fear, worry, comparison, or judgment? The easiest way is to meditate.  Meditation helps you observe your thoughts but not becoming attached to them. With meditation, you align with your essence, or else your true self. You release tension and return to tasks with more ease. As you practice daily, you will gain better clarity in tackling day-to-day life challenges.

You may already have experienced meditation in a group setting. Meditation can take place during a gentle yoga class. The church or the temple offers an environment to practice meditation. However, there are things you can do at home.

My favorite form of meditation is observing my breathing. Here’s how you can go about it. Start in a quiet, comfortable place at home. You may be sitting with your feet grounded, palms on your legs, or lying down. Set your smartphone’s timer for five minutes. Close your eyes. Simply start to notice your breathing in and out of your nose. No need to try deep inhales, but continue to breathe, in and out. Thoughts may come in, do not resist them. Maintain the focus on your breathing. Five minutes go by really fast. Do the same meditation for thirty days, at the same time. Write me, let me know how this experience is for you.

Best, Nefeli

Exercise: What is one thing you would want to change your life? Is it your finances, your career, your love relationships, or the way you manage your time? Take some time to think and to write your answer down. Then examine your thoughts. Is it realistic to act on the change you want to see? If not, why not? write it down.

A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be” -Abraham Maslow

This Fall I am celebrating my film’s completion and the start of the new one. I submitted Adjustment at film festivals in Europe and locally in New York City and await responses. Check the trailer here

I started writing a new screenplay, a love story. I always wanted to make that type of a story for the screen. Starting anything can be off-putting and a cause for anxiety, even for the most disciplined. To start I use affirmations, short helpful sentences with soothing words. Affirmations are easy to write and to carry around on an index card, inside a wallet.

According to the English American Dictionary, to “affirm” is to state that something is true. You may know the work of Louise Hay, I borrow from her website

An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change. In essence, you’re saying to your subconscious mind: “I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change.” When I talk about doing affirmations, I mean consciously choosing words that will either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life.”

Creativity affirmations

I am aware of my own talents and abilities and therefore I feel more focused.

Every day, I feel more positive about my creative talents and abilities and realize that I enjoy taking control of my life.

I know that I can achieve my full potential. I work on my creative projects every day.

I love my creative energy. I recognize more and more all the good things I have created in my life.

I hold my head high as I now feel good about myself and my daily creative practice.

I  enjoy my life, as I am focused on my creative projects daily.

I have a relaxed attitude towards others as I feel confidence and joy in following my creative bliss.

I take in everything that life is to offer me and I enjoy my creativity every day.

I now have a positive picture of myself in front of me, totally in control of my creative life, totally sure of my art practice.

Every day I become more aware of my talents and abilities and I am reaching my creative goals.

Stand in front of your mirror. Say the affirmations out loud a few times in the morning and in the evening.

Place your affirmations in visible areas at work or at home, somewhere you can easily glance throughout the day.

Does the process of starting sound overwhelming? Contact me at 347-830-5239, or via email to schedule a free mini session to discuss your needs.

The new exhibit I enjoyed in November is “Paper Dolls” by Rick Lazes, a sculptural artist specializing in innovative design techniques and materials. I was drawn to the Ezair gallery by the playful vivid colors and shapes I noticed through the gallery window, one evening walking on Lexington Street in Manhattan.  I thought, “what a spectacle” and walked inside.

“I create vibrant and sensuous sculpture that is a manifestation of my passion for music,” Rick begins his artist statement. Rick is not a traditional sculptor. His artistic vision is exploratory with plexiglass, photography, or painting. This versatility of the medium allows Rick to balance his mastery of shape and contour with color and iconography.

A useful Adjustment

What a great way to finish the month, welcome the middle of Fall and announce I completed my new narrative film Adjustment. This was a five-year process. All the while, I held a full-time job, relocated to the City of New York and started a new life, fully committed to myself and the things I love the most!

I took two years to write the screenplay, I completed about thirty drafts or more. Then I found incredible talent in New York City who agreed to work with me over our free time. Post-production took a year and a half, considering I shot five green screens!

Adjustment describes the story of Clio when she is laid off, should she pursue the promise of the US, or return to her homeland in Europe?

I enclose useful links, that describe the amazing talent and some more information about this enriching creative process.

On a different note, I started planning my new film, aiming to produce it in the summer of 2018. But for this, I ‘ll write some later. I hope you have a blessed weekend! -NefeliLiberty Statue
