Who am I?
Hello, friend! Grab a cup of coffee and gather with me! I am so happy that you have found your way here...
I'm Natasha, and The Art of a Happy Heart is my heARTwork and my purpose. It is also a gift I want to share with you. Here I share my journey, my works of heART and healing guidance with a sincere hope that whatever it is that you seek and find in this space resonates deeply with your heart. May it be a salve to the wounds...and may you find touchstones to comfort you and guide you always back home to your heart.
As a Certified Metaphysical Practitioner, I work to transform energies and to bring balance to the body, mind and spirit...but especially to the heart.
I am the artist behind The Art of a Happy Heart sacred adornments, which you will find here in this space. Handmade by me in my home studio, I use natural gemstones, infused with positive energy and intentions, to mindfully and lovingly create each piece as a wearable work of heART...a touchstone for your journey.
✦ When you need more than a touchstone ✦
Do you long for community? For a sacred space where your heart can be seen, heard and held? Well, welcome to our community of healing hearts! I would love to support and guide you on your journey. Whether through energy healing guidance or by creating sacred adornments to support your journey, our connection has now been made; our hearts connected from across the Universe.
A Love Letter for you...
When you are ready, I invite you to step into the depths of your heart and feel into this space. Here, we will strive to empower ourselves to live from the heart as a daily practice, through awakening and healing the heart. I truly believe that we can find happiness by transforming our heart energy through connection, healing, and lovingly embracing ourselves and the world around us.
I am so grateful for our connection; how our hearts...in so many ways big and small, will expand and heal because of each other. Thank you for being a part of my journey and allowing me to be a part of yours. And if our paths cross even for a moment, I bow to you in gratitude.
"Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile to myself, because I love you, yes I do."
These boys. All of them...
Their smiles and laughs light the corners of my heart and have healed me in ways they will never know. They are my guides, my mirrors, my loves...in their spirits, I see the things I want to embrace within myself. I am so incredibly lucky to have them with me on this life journey. I Lovie them!
My heart belongs to my hubby, Matt...My honeybee.
And like the honeybee, who reminds us to enjoy the sweetness of life, that is the essence of who he is. He is the one who keeps us laughing every day, never taking life too seriously, and yet never forgetting to show his love in all the little ways that mean so much. He is a thoughtful and loving hubby and the most gentle and kind daddy to our littles. He has awakened my heart to what true love really is. We have loved each other through the happy moments, and grown together through the dark moments. He has accepted me in my wholeness; has seen my shadows and loves me still. He has believed in me and grown with me; together, every step of the way. We have pushed each other to our edges when we needed it the most in order to grow into the best versions of ourselves. Love isn't always easy, but with patience and presence, it bends, but it never breaks. He is my best friend and I am beyond honored to share this life with him. I'd do it over and over a thousand times, in a thousand lifetimes.
Besides, he makes a damn good cup-o-joe! Keeper!
These two free-spirited and crazy kiddos made us parents.
Finnegan (5) is our wild heart who really knows how to have fun with life! He is quirky & spunky just like mommy, loves adventure, playing outside in nature, dancing, helping us cook, and has the most infectious laugh! AND he loves the Golden Girls just like me, so yeah, I've pretty much mastered this parenting thing! A child of the Sun, he embraces life and teaches us to live fully in the moment while dancing to your own tune.
Max (3) is our little sweetie pie! He is our very own happy Buddha with his chubby belly and sweet smile! He is super laid back just like his daddy-o, loves exploring his little world, is a foodie (just like mommy & daddy), loves animals and has the sweetest smile and a loving nature. He charms his way into your heart the moment you meet him! A child of the Earth, he teaches us to go with the flow and simply enjoy life.
Sometimes we feel like we don't know what in the hell we are doing when it comes to this parenting thing, but our little ones love fiercely, and they have never met a person that they have not called, "friend", so we feel we are doing something damn well right.
All we really wanna' do, and what we are going to do, is to raise our children to love and care about themselves, love and care about other people and to love and care about the earth. That they might move in the world in a loving and gentle way.
These kiddos are already such shining lights in this world! As we teach them about life, they teach us what life is about. To see the world through new eyes everyday. To embrace life and live & love fully from the heart and seek happiness any chance you get!
They will change the world in amazing ways; they have already changed ours.
