I’m Ally.
I’m a soulful woman
on a quest
to spark
sacred imagination,
creative possibility
& feminine intuition

Two of the deepest beliefs I hold are:
You and I are sacred BE-ings.
CREATIVITY is our birthright.

It’s been a long spiral road for me to come back to these truths.
You see, there was a time when I lost connection to the purity of creativity.

I got bungled up in competition with peers.

I became insecure in my ideas.

My focus was on the “perfect” end product without enjoyment of the process.

I no longer saw myself as creative.

Slowly, I moved further away from my true way of being in the world
to become what others wanted me to be.
My sacred spark dimmed and I lost connection to my authentic self.

Autopilot became my way to navigate life.
I said “Yes” to tasks that kept me busy, not fulfilled.
I listened to others’ advice for my life
because I believed they knew better than I did.

All this drained me to empty.

Eventually, my path led me to deeply navigate my relationship with Divine Love.

Before long, I heard a whisper within say, “Be still.”

So, I sat.
And listened.
Then, I started to write.
Poetry came forth.
I opened watercolors and began to flow color.

When I engaged creativity as sacred relationship
between Divine Love and myself, everything changed:

RELATIONSHIP replaced routine

PRACTICE replaced perfection

BEAUTY replaced busy

PROCESS replaced progress

INTUITION replaced institution

The Sacred Feminine wooed me into her embrace.

Today, I have a sustainable, creative practice that opens me
to inner feminine wisdom and soulful ideas.
This practice changes regularly and flows organically.
The creative life isn’t static!

By showing up for myself through intentional ritual and art making,
I’ve grown self-compassion and courage.
As I create, possibility and healing arises through image and word;
transformative action follows.

 Ally has guided me through
an awakening of my true self. 
Her words, poems, writings, thoughts
are priceless to those who choose
to create in her classes.
She has lit a spark within me
on a journey of self discovery,
spiritual awakening and authenticity!” 

Soul Sparkler of Soul Kindling

and vibrant possibility
