Rewild. Remember. Receive. Living among indigenous people with rich ritual memories has inspired me to learn more about my own ancestral traditions. In the ancient Celtic calendar wheel, today is known as Lรบnasa or Lammas, a time for hiking hillsides, feasting on the seasonโ€™s first fruits and making offerings to the earth, imploring her to open her womb for an abundant harvest. #conversationswithladiosa #35mm #wombseriesbykellyframel

Every day is about getting out of the way so my inner child can play. Stripping off all things learned and conditioned, furiously forgetting and discarding so creation can come from a place of pure nonsense. Clearing the channel. Keeping it clear. Thinking that maybe โ€” just maybe โ€” one day, if I break myself down far enough, Iโ€™ll paint with the brilliance and abandon that children access so easily. Spiraling back there with all my might, knowing that involution is evolution, and the journey itself is my own revolution ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ caught in the act by @eloisaflo โœ‹๐ŸŽจ new work coming soon @i.am.keli.ma #KELIyuga

Remember the sky that you were born under, know each of the star's stories. Remember the moon, know who she is. Remember the sun's birth at dawn, that is the strongest point of time. Remember sundown and the giving away to night. Remember your birth, how your mother struggled to give you form and breath. You are evidence of her life, and her mother's, and hers. Remember your father. He is your life, also. Remember the earth whose skin you are: red earth, black earth, yellow earth, white earth brown earth, we are earth. Remember the plants, trees, animal life who all have their tribes, their families, their histories, too. Talk to them, listen to them. They are alive poems. Remember the wind. Remember her voice. She knows the origin of this universe. Remember you are all people and all people are you. Remember you are this universe and this universe is you. Remember all is in motion, is growing, is you. Remember language comes from this. Remember the dance language is, that life is. Remember. Poem by #JoyHarjo via @thegothamgirl #conversationswithladiosa #wombseriesbykellyframel

What a monumental year this has been! In January 2018, I flew to NYC, packed up 13 years of living, and shipped it all to Mexico City. For February I studied Spanish there while waiting for my boxes to trickle in through customs. In March I loaded it all into a truck and drove 8 hours south, to settle into a cottage in the Oaxacan countryside. Then life burst into technicolor. I made this place my home. Flowers were blooming all around me and I could feel myself blossoming too. Good things began to grow in abundance, while I ran barefoot, naked, free. I spent my days painting after 17 years of abandoning my truest love. I remembered the sound of my own intuition, and that voice grew stronger day by day. Looking in the mirror, I experienced an unprecedented sense of recognition; the eyes of my own soul stare back at me and I KNOW that woman. I know what she came to this life to do. I am overwhelmed by the miracle of it all. And just when I thought it couldnโ€™t get any better, I was able to welcome my family to this magical place, to celebrate together the wholeness of life and the wedding of my sister. My heart aches in gratitude. Itโ€™s been a chapter of staggering transformation, immense trust, and big, big Love. Thank you to all the shining ones who have illuminated my path and supported me on this journey. Feeling very merry indeed this Christmas Day.

Never leave home without camera and compass ๐Ÿค™ yesterday these two trusty friends unexpectedly led me to the magnificent ruins of Yagul, an ancient Zapotec civilization hidden in the hills of Oaxaca, where I found myself totally alone for hours, left to explore with wonder its mysterious mazes and cliffs and caves, listening to the winds of remembering โœจ๐Ÿ—ฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ
