“I’m growing and evolving as a person walking on this planet, and I want to evolve in a way that is organic and natural and in alignment with where I am and who I am right now. And so it’s about, for me, listening to my intuition. And listening to that voice that tis sometimes a little quiet and sometimes a little nagging. And I try to always listen to that. And yes, people thought I was absolutely insane…but I just felt like I needed to continue to evolve as an artist, a business person, as a spiritual being living on this planet.”

“We’re in this period where a lot of people are alone right now. Or they are surrounded by immediate family at all times. Which, again, magnifies everything. It magnifies all your stuff. Because it is uncomfortable…and we don’t like uncomfortable. Well, what if you just sit, just sit in it. And not only just sit in it, but welcome it. If you can welcome it, if you can allow it to become a part of you.”
