Last week I came across this fantastic artist that does animations, his name is George Redhawk. I started investigating him after being astonished by his creations and I can tell he has unmasked his fire and as he says this is the world through his eyes. Beautiful.

The motion of the graphics are spectacular, I can keep looking at them for minutes and hours, the hypnotic power of the images transfers you to another level of sensing, what you are seeing and feeling and the admiration generated on my body for this man is extravagant. Looking at his pieces reminds me being in a deep meditation where you just have an element of focus and in this case, it is being focused on the beauty of Redhawk creations, focused on its beautiful motion combined with the stillness of some parts of the image. Simply astonishing and wonderful.

I love seeing artists that they unmask their fire, the passion within, the connection to the world.

Have you unmasked your fire?

I came across Alleles site recently, https://www.instagram.com/alleles/?hl=en.Mixing art,
Mixing art, technology, design and fashion on something functional at the same time that you enhance someone’s live!
What a beautiful innovation – a product with high impact.

I truly admire people with disabilities. They go over the little nonsense of life and they appreciate what is important. They have magic around them, they have that aura.
An aura of amazingness and authenticity, that its fueled by the day to day,  what was a challenge one day  has been reframed, internalized and normalized to the point that you can wear an art leg.
It’s truly inspiring, energising and admirable. I love it!

The art director McCauley Wanner and technology director Ryan Palibroda are not prosthetists or prosthetic wearers, nor do they come from typical fashion design backgrounds. But their mission is simple: to turn prosthetics into something that adds to a look, instead of disappearing within it, or distracting from it. And that’s why their prosthetic covers are so important.

Life is short and we have just one… enjoy it, appreciate it, be grateful and EMBRACE the reality, whatever that is.

I love collages, I love the ones with a twist, the ones that mix earthy elements with animals and human body parts.

Recently in my trip to Italy in Amalfi coast I come across a very talented artist Camilla Anciloto that doest an incredible technique where 3 pieces of art congregate in one.

When you look at that piece of art all your sense are engaged, enhanced and WOWed!! YOU ARE IN THE NOW, when you look at a piece of art that you really love you have to be in the now and this is why art creates magic moments.

In a world of increasing demand, we are working longer hours,  constantly tied to our phones, emails and information overload and the shift in technology has created an online world where everything is available at the millisecond. That can create a narrow picture, addiction to instant reward and overall impatience and….  but humans are not meant to be working like computers at high speed for long period of time.

Great performers are at their best when managing energy at four dimensions:

  • Physical composed by sleep, fitness and nutrition and intermittent rest through the day to recharge.
  • Emotional via learning to cultivate emotional intelligence. Be mindful of your negative emotions and believes because how you feel influences how you perform.
  • Mental energy via learning to focus and being in the state of flow and being able to gravitate from strategic big picture to tactical thinking
  • Spiritual which is belonging something bigger than yourself which can be higher connection to the universe.

Following this tips, you will be more engaged on whatever you do and with more  positive energy which will allow you to focus on what really makes and impact in your personal and professional life.

If you are a leader encourage your team to focus on this 4 dimensions to cultivate a culture of high performers and achievers.

How are you managing this dimensions in the work space?

 

From a very early age I was a very shy girl, my mum would give me money to buy sweets but it was too scary to go by myself.
I would sit in my room and just observe my toys, I didn’t play to not make a mess.
I started drawing on the walls of the house, so my parents allocated me a playing room where I could draw and create ’beauty’ as much as I wanted…
Before I knew, I became a teenager, I wanted to go out to explore and to understand who I was.  This is what I call the first beautiful transformation of my life. From shy to brave, from tidy to organised chaos, from home based to street, but within I was always looking for inspiration, curiosity and exploration.

At 18 I started an engineering degree, full of maths, chemistry and physics and number connections. After, I did food science and technology – that filled my curiosity at the atom and molecular level of food and nutrition. I was also doing private lessons to students so I could be more  ‘financially independent’ towards feeding what, in that time, beautiful meant to me; dresses, parties, having fun, jewelry, art, beautifully created food and much more. Also, I was helping students to shine by teaching math’s and physic’s private lessons but I didn’t share with them all the inspiration that I can share with you today…

At 25 I decided to explore the globe, to live elsewhere outside Spain, where I  grew up and learned to be passionate and full of FIRE.
I moved to London.  I didn’t speak English, didn’t understand British people and of course neither their sarcasm!!
I didn’t have friends or family but there was something inside that drove me to do it. Every day was a beautiful adventure, full of inspiration, a sense of freedom, lightness and full of excitement…. Here comes my second transformation. Inspiration, curiosity, cultural diversion, exploration, beautiful experiences, fun and the most important one: I got to know myself. The start of my evolution.

Since then, it has been a magnificent inspiring journey, full of highs and lows (both as pampering), learnings, experiences and achievements.  I connected with towering personalities and with a huge bunch of amazing and diverse people. I traveled around the world, which opened my mind to huge possibilities and diversion of opinions.

After the first year in London working in retail, I started my 1st professional job in engineering, then I took the risk and moved to marketing.
I have been in the corporate world for 10 years. I learned to connect brands with customers and to connect myself with individuals.  I have worked for start-ups and for big global corporations. From 0 to delivering public speeches to whole company’s audience in a foreign language. 11 years ago, it would have been a scary thought but this is possible by stepping up, setting a new standard and removing limiting beliefs.

A huge connecting adventure, that I call, LIFE.  Because everything is impermanent, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE when you FOCUS.

I recently realised how important it is to understand the concept of impermanence.  I feel I am at the pinnacle what I call my 3rd eye-opening transformation which has mindfulness at its core and that started 6 years ago. I want to keep it alive as an infinite journey.
I would like to maintain this growth, this inspiration, this electricity, keep transforming, keep reinventing, being present and finding beauty and gratefulness every day in my life, channeling the fire with focus and spread this energy to the world as the only constant is change and every change leads you to new opportunities.

This is the goal for this blog and hence its name: Unmasking Fire; to create magic moments by being the catalyst and an eye opener to unmask peoples fire and to enhance the ones that already discovered theirs, to elevate peoples vibration by creating a shift. To give, share, to connect and ultimately to help others to transform.

What is your story? How do you see beauty? How connected are you to the world? And with yourself? Everyone has a story; please share yours with the world….
