Last summer I began crafting my second EP with one of my longtime friends Crush The Icon. I began this journey
in the midst of so many transformations in my life. I had just been kicked out of my artist development program, and been left by my lover for another woman all in the span of a few months. You can probably imagine the rejection and uncertainty I felt. In the weeks after what appeared to be a loss, I began to find myself. I realized that everything leaving my life was a result of me becoming an individual, owning my voice, and refusing to settle for things that no longer fit the woman or artist I was becoming. For a-lot of my adult life I felt stunted when it came to expressing my complete self. Even now I have reservations about the statements I am making in my new EP 'As Above', which was originally named 'Omnipotence.' When brainstorming the direction of this work I knew I wanted it to be powerful. I wanted to reaffirm myself and my path. I wanted to be raw, I tapped into my sexually repressed divine feminine that was shamed as a preteen. She was angry, vulgar, and loud, but she also was confident and knew the world was hers. Making this project has healed me and its a true testament of where I have been and where I am going. It's important for this work to reach the world because it is authentic art. And where there is authenticity, there is opportunity for vulnerable soul connection. Join me in funding the marketing budget for my upcoming music release 'As Above' August 30th by purchasing a As Above Tote Bag from my website MelodyReyne.com
"A rose's rarest essence lives in the thorn. A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom."
I kicked off this month collaborating with Tori Nicole. There's nothing i enjoy more than natural chemistry in creative projects. We were able to get a collection of breath-taking shots within twenty five minutes our first time working together. The photo to the left is my favorite shot from the series. In a lot of ways I can relate to the rose. I have to protect my talents and energy so that I too can blossom into the woman I am becoming. The scorpio moon is today and I'm so ready to purge unnecessary connections from my life. Death is apart of life, both an ending and a beginning.
Let go and Live Liberated,
I'm a couple days late but happy April! I'm into astrology so when the Sun goes into Aries It signifies a New Year for me, so I reflect twice on what I want this year to be like. Last year was beautiful but filled with so many obstacles. Most of which came from other people and allowing their actions to steal my joy and peace of mind. That is no more. This month specifically I have directed my energy back inward. I have been taking care of my own needs, emotionally, physically, and spiritually and I have gained a new perspective on life. I feel that I better understand my worth and how precious my energy is. This year I want to surround myself with people who not only recognize my value but actively appreciate it with their ACTIONS. If you know anything about the Universal laws you know that our outside world is mirrored by our inside world. With that being said, I had to face myself and realize that I was not loving myself the way I should or seeing the worth of my presence in my own life or in others. This lead to me putting myself last, chasing relationships that were not good for me and wasting my time trying to get others to see in me what I couldn't even see in myself. After coming to this awareness I CHANGED MY MIND. I'm grateful to God for those experiences because without them I wouldn't know what I deserved. I'm Liberating myself from the thoughts I've had that have stood in the way of the love I deserve. No longer will I sabotage my own happiness by creating situations that reflect the "I'm not good enough" thought process. If your reading this I challenge you to look at yourself and see what It is your creating that is keeping you from living your best life. After doing so, Don't blame, reflect on what you are thinking to create that undesired out come and start the process of change within yourself.
