Hi, I'm Gin (aka Ginger) - passionate about creativity, self care, soul nourishment, spiritual and joy connections, and living true.
I love writing, reading, painting, music, oracle cards, being at the beach, crystals, my family of love, communing with nature and God and Jesus, drumming, chakra work, smelling coffee, tasting chocolate, and cuddling my cat.
(and taking lots of photos of said cat!)
I believe we're all creative.
I believe we're all intuitive.
I believe we're always surrounded by our spiritual team.
I believe in the sacred of everything, big and small.
I believe we all deserve to be seen, heard, and witnessed.
And my superpower is gentle clarity.
There are some main threads weaving through my life - and these threads influence everything about me and what I do...
I'm a writer. It's one of the absolute main threads weaving through my life since the time I could form letters into words. (my middle-grade historical novel, In New Harmony, is available on amazon and b&n - and you can find out about my nonfiction ebooks at this link)
I'm a crafter, artist, creatrix, intuitive, and energy alchemist. These intersect with my personal spirituality in a deep way, and each plays a role in the work I do and the way I live life.
I'm a spoonie - and this is one reason I know first-hand, personally, and up-close how important and necessary self-care is.
Another main thread that's been weaving throughout my life since very (very) early is anxiety. I've lived with severe anxiety (and I'm talking to the point of panic attacks and even a couple of years of agoraphobia), and anxiety is something that impacts my life even now - even with knowing and working with a large variety of methods to deal with it, anxiety and I have an ongoing relationship.
My own travel with anxiety is one reason inner calm is so important to me.
It's one reason my spiritual relationship is so crucial to me.
It's one reason energetic harmony is so vital to me.
And It's one reason I'm guided to do the work I do with Subtle Harmony..
Then there's creativity and its role in life overall...
Creativity has always been part of my life, in a variety of ways.
But I didn't always know how important creativity is when it comes to my anxiety.
I now know first-hand how creativity helps me deal and helps me heal. I know how incredibly important creativity is for soul nourishment, for self-expression, and for living true.
Creativity helps connect with JOY.
And, for me, it's also related to my spiritual connection.
There are some guiding phrases for me, phrases I've adopted and taken to heart - phrases that say something about who I am, how I live, what I'm about, what I do...
fierce and magical grace
Other words or terms of who and what I am or what I do: indie author, published writer, certified intuitive reader, certified crystal healer, Reiki Master, holistic life coach, teacher, and (although I'm not currently working in the field) librarian.
On my blog, I write about things like stress and anxiety, self care, creativity, energy, joy connections, and soul nourishment.
The work I offer through Subtle Harmony includes handcrafted items, artwork, and digital products about those things - to offer reminders, tools, techniques, touchstones, and talismans to help you with self care, soul nourishment, and connection to your joy and to your true self.
My Subtle Harmony Etsy shop can be found at this link.
