H and J is Now LIVE!

Hello All,
I have finally, after weeks of work, and years of planning and developing launched
My own Personal Empowerment Zone...
Please do me the great favor of taking a look at the site,
And I am asking for a review of my site from my friends,
I just wanted to be clear...
Would you please take a moment to let me know
how it looks, works, reads, performs for you?
This is my way of testing the site and I would really appreciate
anyone's feedback on the's not complete, I am still writing (or I should say pulling out my red editors marker, again) on our personal bio's, and getting our photo's taken (ugh) but it's functioning and up and well.... we are just darn excited about being what we really want to be in this life as life mates, and as individuals.
This is our Business Mission Statement:
To provide high quality, customized and customer focused Innovation Consulting & Mentoring Services to individuals, businesses, & corporations.
Through these services, we Empower our customers to Actualize and Realize Rapid Growth & Improvement in all areas of their Personal & Professional Lives.
Most of you know that I am trying to purchase an Organic Farm...well, this launch and development of OUR own company, my Mate Man and I back in business together, it's just right and it's also our proof that FLOW is something we can all harness at any time.
We are selling everything we own, getting down to just one car and a trailer...and we are saying NO to the current reality, and we are going to do it
John will be giving up his Job @ the Hospital...that's crazy right?
I mean he has a great job, that pays well and has benefits...and he hates it.
We don't have money saved up(enough); we have not followed any of the rules about how to go about this process of needing to BE The Change NOW
(We are Rain Makers, Serial Entrepreneurs, even... some might say).
We are going to find a way, and we are going to live a low-impact high velocity life
No more waiting for the right moment, enough money, the right debt/income ratio, screw it all. I have applied for loans, grants, and I am working my ass off, Planned the farms Off-Grid Plan, Cashed out the investments,
and I AM selling all my stuff, ART if you have had your eye on anything over at BAD! Kitty Art Studio,
"Let's make a Deal" time is ON.
Make me offers.
Break all rules of social conduct and react from the gut, just do it, or pass my info along to someone who might be interested, please.
We as a family choose to live the life we want
I know I can create a family-scaled productive, self-sustaining, low-impact (green energy and clean food & water for all) model
and We can show others how to do it too... all over the world.
From Africa to the American Suburbs, this working model will serve as an open ended experiment in how we do not and should not be relying on any government, or entity
or have to pay those
governments/entities for the Privilege of having food, water and energy.
I am going to prove it can be done.
Living With Flow,
A Model that can be copied,
modified and spread around the globe.
Every home can become Green energy wise right now.
Every person could learn a few simple
skills and have free clean water and food.
Right where they are, right now.
Please come see what we are doing,
how committed we are, and what it looks like to
Just do it.
Fearless, and unafraid to
Love to all,
Heather & Now John too!
*New site*

BAD! Kitty SHOUT OUT! Check it!

Another Great BAD! Kitty Check it out!
I ask you... Who doesn't love to get a great gift sent to them, something that is thoughtful and functional too? Well I know I personally love getting and giving gift baskets.

So next time you need something for someone in your life (quick like) that needs a gift or a congratulations or a thank you consider gift baskets as a great feel good
way to express your sentiments.

Quote for the day
Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls?
Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes.
That is why many people live in the withering negative world.
That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world.
And you don't have to be a
poet or a philosopher
to know which is best.

Alfred Montapert
I am not Average.
I am not Afraid.
I am not Small.
I am not Unloveable.
I am not Leaveable.
I am not Avoiding my future.
I am not just a Gender.
I am not a definition of Anything.
I am not Exploitable.
I am not a Number.
I am not going to ever give up.
I am not just a Human.
I am not a Prophet.
I am not your Messiah.
I am not afraid to be my own God.
I am not unethical.
I am not a liar.
I am not what you think.
I am not Ordinary.
I am not afraid to go First.
I am.
May the day be yours today.
What are you NOT?
Write it down, I'd love to hear it.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio ~ New ART ~ Another page from my upcoming Art Book$ Quote for the day

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
~New BAD! Kitty Art~ Another Page from my new Art Book that is almost ready to show you all!
This page is called:
'I am lover, creator and teacher'
Laminated collage
The quote that inspired the work:
"When we touch this domain, we are
filled with the cosmic force
of life itself, we sink our roots
deep into the black soil and draw power
and being up into ourselves.
We know the energy of the numen and are saturated
with power and being.
We feel grounded, centered, in touch
with the ancient and eternal
Rhythms of life,
Power and Passion
well up like an artesian spring
and creativity dances in celebration
of life."
~ David N. Elkins
I dance,
I touch
I love
I am
free from your definitions of who I am.
I am free to be me.
And that is my mission
to become the very best me I can become.
So onward with the work,
the dedication,
the faith,
the love,
the essence of
the Real Me.
Want more in your life, then go figure it out, the what
you want, then make a plan to get it,
don't complain how hard your road is,
all paths are hard,
as long as a path has a heart, then it is never wrong
to take a stroll and
discover what is
around your own life's bend.
Be Brave and Bold today.
Yours in the moment,
and willing to go first,

"When we are sure that we are on the right road,
there is no need to plan our journey too far ahead;
no need to burden ourselves with
doubts and fears
as to the obstacles
that may bar our progress.
We cannot take more
than one step at a time."

Orison Swett Marden
Taking steps.
Every day I walk
into my future.
Taking steps.
Each chance I take
is choosing possible
Taking Steps.
When I speak
I risk losing
every thing.
Taking Steps.
Every time I say 'yes'
to a life with
no less love in it
than I put into it
I Grow.
Taking Steps.
When I say 'no'
to situations
that are not
within a circle of
truth and love
that I can
and grow from
I am
to finding
my own
Taking steps
Without fear
that tomorrow
I will fail to take
the next step.
I will always be
taking steps...
forward &
I am willing
to go

Be well,
and Live in your
Truth today.
There will be a quiz later,
so come back prepared
what happened when you were
just exactly who you
really are
Was it easier to to be just you
or was it a struggle
against what society has told you
you are?
Take notes...

"Just because the message
my never be
received does not mean
it is not worth sending."
Messages sent
some received on lifes
some caught
in the back field
with the sun
in my eyes,
a hopeful

open glove.
When the places
that we
live within
become prisons
for our true selves
what spurs
The human inside
the soul
takes charge
and sometimes
deepens directions
and sometimes
changes direction
all together.
Living in Love
you can
evolve at your own pace
and you may not be
but you
will be supported
by those most important around you.
You will be
supported in
growing yourself
and cultivating
a deep faith
A Communication hard line

A Great BAD! Kitty Check It OUT! Flowers What could be better?

A totally cool BAD! Kitty Check it out!
This is the best place this BAD! Kitty has found for sending the most wonderful not AVERAGE flowers. You know everybody at some point has to buy flowers for someone special in their lives, and buying flowers from the internet can be scary...why not use a terrific company to do it?
I have used this great site, and been very pleased with the design of the flowers (Being a retired floral designer, I am so very picky)
the shipment quality, and the customer service was and is top notch.
Right from the source: "Summer's best bets in the flower market are colorful, hearty blooms from the lily, orchid, daisy, and dahlia families that burst onto the scene with warmth and grace. Choose summer wedding flowers that are white, full of color, airy, or solid. No matter which you choose, each of these summer flowers is bursting with decorating potential."
I agree! I just had some flowers delivered for a friends birthday, recently and her response was terrific! I looked like a hero, and a good company benefited..

BAD! Kitty Art Studio Quote for the Day
Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. Soak it then in such trains of thoughts as, for example: Where life is possible at all, a right life is possible.

Marcus Aurelius
A trained mind is a
terrible thing to waste.
I have a Friday that will test my abilities to remain
calm in the face
of waiting.
I have work that needs completing.
I have marketing to catch up on.
I have new clients coming in because of my hard work and redsign of my Life Mentoring/Coaching site.
I have more work than I can possibly get done
in one small day,
and I am glad that I have so much
to do, because of the laws of attraction
because of my own way of doing things,
because of my ethical standards.
because I will do
more than what is asked of me,
Because service
doesn't mean sacrifice,
it is it's own reward.
I will work for me today,
what will you work for?
What would you do today
if you knew you could not fail?
I am going to ask for the sale.
I am going to paint for myself.
I am going to work for my dream, and help those
I can along the way.
I am going to give more and take less.
I am going to go out and engage my world.
That's sure fire not to fail.
Have a great day,
may it be yours this Friday, all that you desire, and create.
Let it be.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio Quote for the day

Again and again I therefore admonish my students in Europe and America: Don't aim at success - the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run - in the long-run, I say! - success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio Quote for the day
One big reason why men do not develop greater abilities,
greater sales strength,
greater resourcefulness
is because they use neither
their abilities nor their opportunities.
We don't need more strength or more
ability or greater opportunity.
What we need is to use what we have.
Men fail and their families suffer deprivations when all the time these men have in their possession
the same assets other men are utilizing to accumulate a fortune. . . . Life doesn't cheat.
It doesn't pay in counterfeit coin.
It doesn't lock up shop and go home when pay-day comes.
It pays every man exactly what he has earned.
The age-old law that a man gets what he earns hasn't been suspended.
When we take that truth home and believe it,
we've turned a big corner on the high road
that runs straight
through to success.

Basil S. Walsh
I am my own
proof, my testimony is
I don't need to be anything more than exactly who
I am, right now, in this
That is my Truth,
I just am
Simple, dedicated, and
not Average.
Simple, motivated, and
and then I
am so much
I have success in my back pocket now,
Turned corners, peeking behind
closed doors,
carried truth home and unpacked her bags,
found Joy in the corners
pulled dignity out of the closet, dusted it off,
a regular person living in a human form
dealing with
pain that reminds
me today...
I am a soul with a body
not a body with a soul.
Raw and Radiant today.

Eco-engineer Braungart is making strides to eradicate industrial and consumer pollution by designing and developing waste-free systems. Called Cradle-to-Cradle Design, his system offers a framework for designing products and processes based on a simple equation: Waste = Food!

The marvelous richness of human experience
would lose something of rewarding joy
if there were no limitations to overcome.
The hilltop hour would not be
half so wonderful if there were
no dark valleys to traverse.

Helen Keller
I have been studying abundance.
So far the education has been about how to become wealthy, rich.
I really don't give a rats ass about Money.
I care about being an abundant, wonderful
Soul, Spirit, Human Being.
That is what I desire, crave and strive for every single day.
My work, my artwork is an extension of my
philosophy on this reality.
My Work, my Life Coaching/Clairvoyant work,
is an extension of myself that NEEDS
to help others find out how
wonderful they are or can become.
Both 'jobs' are powerful.
I am not Average
at anything I do.
When I work, I do it with all of myself
I go down deep inside and pull out the
best and put that out first.
I am living hand to mouth
and my family is not perfect
and I don't own my own home
and I am struggling every day
and I am
because I
continue, with courage and faith.
What makes you Wonderful?

Motivational Life Coaching is it for you? Let's find out

How Is Coaching Different From Therapy?
Coaching is definitely not therapy or counseling.
In my role as a coach,
I do not diagnose or treat mental disorders.

Coaches do not analyze your past as part of the healing necessary

to overcome deeper psychological problems such as clinical depression or anxiety disorders.
While knowing some aspects of your past may be helpful for me to understand you, it is not the primary focus of coaching.
Coaching is focused on the present and future.
Coaching identifies and taps into your potential. Coaching is about developing motivation.
Coaching is about creating, implementing and sticking to action plans to achieve your life goals.
Is Coaching For You?
You can benefit from coaching if any of the following are true for you:
  • You're feeling stuck in one or more areas of your life.
  • When you try something new, you can't seem to follow through.
  • You're feeling stressed at work or home.
  • You would like to be doing something different, but don't know what.
  • You would like to get more out of your relationships.
  • You don't have a clear plan or vision for your future.
  • You would like to make changes in your life, but never seem to get around to it.
  • You just ended a relationship and are unsure about what to do next.
  • You're having difficulty balancing home and work?
  • You would like to be a better partner to your significant other? *****

Some of the ways I may be able to help you in your life are:

  • I am an instrument of change and tool of empowering for the many humans who are looking for real meaningful change, direction or movement in their lives.
  • I can help you Overcome and Identify the challenges in your present life, and help you to come up with ways to resolve and improve upon what your own inner self tells you 'needs fixing' so that we can get to the real business of improving your present life and start to emphasize all the 'rights' about you. I can help you learn to embrace your future without fear but with excitement and courage.
  • I can help improve and deepen your relationships with Yourself, family, friends and co-workers, helping to eliminate trust issues, and recovering the ability to love and be loved in a healthy way.
  • I can help you discover and improve yourself in your 'work' life and your financial outlook, overcoming barriers to your monetary or professional success, and help to increase your FLOW and profitability in both areas. I am a specialist in Marketing/Branding for small businesses helping them to create a living doing what they love with meaning and ideals that increase profitability in all areas of business.
  • I can help you strengthen and deepen healthy bonds between you and your children and mate, helping you to build the family unit that you have always dreamed of.
  • I can help you improve your own self esteem so that you can attract the energy and abundance in your personal life, career and love relationships.
  • I can help you learn to love and trust yourself again.
  • I can help you accomplish and reach goals that you set for yourself; losing weight, stop smoking, learn to love healthy, learn to what you love for a living successfully, and generally get a good firm focus on your current life, and where you want it to go from here.
  • Being an Motivational/intuitive Life Coach I have helped get people from where they are now to the place they truly want to be, living happy full and productive lives that have FLOW, meaning and excitement in them again. I help people get excited about their lives again.
  • I can Help you better communicate, understand and grow with the children in your life. So that you all may grow with as much love in your lives as possible, becoming with your love and guidance the incredible people you hope and dream for them to be. I am especially good with troubled 'teen' problems.
  • I have the ability, through the Internet, to offer my services at a much lower cost than most others because people need to be guided by a real ENGAGED Life Coach, without going into debt to do it. Nobody ever wins by doing it that way. And I do all consulting by phone at your convenience and where you are able to feel, safe and comfortable.
  • I can help those with Intuitive gifts learn to use them in productive ways in their lives, and increase their abilities through training and professional, loving guidance.
  • I am being the change I want to see in the world.


  • The hourly fee for my services is $95.00 per hour (per 60 minutes)$50.00 per half hour session (per 30 minutes)I am currently offering the following sliding-scale options (look to the left of my page for the links), for my clients that may need to use them or as a low cost special for those who may be new to talking with a Life Coach and want to try it first at a low/no cost.
  • *See information on how to get one free consultation
  • *For all other Session options please click here.
  • I do offer a toll free 800 phone number that will be given to you when you book your appointment, or if you would like to see all of the ways that we can contact each other please click here.
  • Take five minutes to take the survey below, to help you figure out if life coaching is for you. I will be happy to talk with you about your results for *free*!
  • I have updated my life coaching site and hopefully have made it easier for all of you that use my Life Coaching/Clairvoyant abilities to access.
  • Thanks for checking it out, and make an appointment today and let me show you how I can help get you to where you want to be in your life, with LOVE, Passion, and JOY!

Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life.
This is not an easy struggle.
Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is,
in the end, more difficult than opening the doors
to the mysteries of the universe.

Daisaku Ikeda
I am off to
open every door I can today,
to find my dawn I must
Knock, knock...Universe? It's me Heather...
Let me in please, Open the door... we need to talk.
Have a Happy Friday,

BAD! Kitty Art Studio ~ New ART ~

BAD! Kitty New Art!
First up the handy dandy, fold-up, pocket sized (really big pockets) ever so useful laminated wheel of life.
''Pocket Wheel of Life'
Laminated poster from 1993 Utne Reader,
painted by Tashi Gyalsen Gangzey.
I attached the panels together with hand made chainmail steel rings, so it folds anyway you want it to. It has a hole in each top corner so it can hang from little suction cup hooks. (that I am now in love with, coz I got a batch for free from another junk collector!)

This is the text on the back of the poster...Handy for when you need to know quick like...Which path is the one that goes straight to hell...Because you want to avoid that one...OK, stay with me here,

The Wheel Of Life, is a detailed representation of the Tibetan belief in the transmigatory nature of existence, it explains the theory of rebirth.

I have always loved this poster, it reminds me to stay true to myself, I am not a Buddhist nor a Tibetan, but I love the old ways cultures around the world discovered to

teach the masses.

Art Uses to be the most popular along with traveling storytellers of education of the masses.

You would see the art, and have the explanation of the art given to you, and then you would digest that information from the symbolic level to the esoteric or egocentric interpretation of that story.

So, I love ancient art, and have had this with me for many, many years...Oh the stories this Poster can tell...

I have spent years discovering all it's levels, and now that I have turned into to coolest learning aid ever known to man...I thought maybe someone out there might need this Wheel of Life...OMG, I must rush to the digital camera, the light box (fun new toy I am learning with still) and fire up the blog!

So it's going up for sale on the site soon...You know the deal.


All folded up... And ready to go!

7" wide by 8.5" long

(that's folded up folks...It's a poster when you open it!)

Cool huh...A pocket poster.

Dibs on the pocket posters Idea! I am going straight to the department of registering intellectual property and I declare pocket posters to be a BAD! Kitty Original! Ha! So there.


Next up...

'Tansparent Truths'

another hanging from little suction cup wonder of art!

I printed some of my A.I.M. Magnets on high grade transparency film,

let it dry for like ummm forever...

and them I laminated it, cut it apart with pinking shears

punched holes in them,

made chain mail rings of steel, each large ring has three small rings on it to connect them together...Man those are so much fun to make, (not) I can't imagine what the blacksmiths had to go through to make suits out of the same stuff...Wow! So here it is...

Transparent truths, with glass beads at the bottom and the very last one is a little puuurple glass kitty, of course.

It'll be going on the site soon...

Yep, I'm pretty snazzy over here...Don't applaud, just throw money.

Quote for the day
A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life;
When he has the daring to open doors to new experiences and to step boldly forth to explore strange horizons.
When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies.
When he has the curiosity to experiment--to test and try new ways of living and thinking.
When he has the flexibility to adjust and adapt himself to the changing patterns of life.
When he refuses to seek safe places and easy tasks and has, instead, the courage to wrestle with the toughest problems.
When he has the moral stamina to be steadfast in the support of those men in whom he has faith and those causes in which he believes.
When he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints.
When he has the nerve to move out of life's shallows and venture forth into the deep.
When he keeps his heart young, his expectations high and never allows his dreams to die.
When he concludes that a rut is only another name for the grave
and that the only way to stay out of the ruts
is by living adventurously and staying vitally alive
every day of his life.

Wilfred A. Peterson
Good day to you, today is the last day of school for my boys, and the last day until fall for me to have quiet filled hours to work in my studio
lost in my deep dreams of
and raw emotional
and exploration.
Someone is going to need something every 15 minutes
and it won't be me.
So today I bless myself with finishing a project that has become a
huge work...My first, from start to finish Art book is being bound today.
I am binding the first of my very own
I love books.
I own a huge collection on old and new
books that cover just about every topic
know to man, and I go to the library
once a week too.
I read 3-5 books at a time,
I like that...I leave them lying around in places I am often found at during my day....
and read a quick chapter or two...
and then make the world happen
like I do but pondering what I just read while I do it.
Books are my favorite
So I made one.
All by myself.
I will be making many more I feel.
So look for that soon...I also have two new works to take pictures of, and show you all...One is an A.I.M. project...That is pretty cool, it has beads, hangs from suction cups, and is see through...what's not to love about that? The other is a fold up,
pocket Buddhist Wheel of Life from a 1993 Issue of the Utne Reader...
that I have loved and had on a wall somewhere in every home I have lived in
for the last two decades...It was just a fold out little poster, so I cut it up, and then laminated it, and then reassembled it with hand made cut circles of steel...rings, little cirles... so it will fold up and fit in a pocket...And it's now very handy dandy
so I will show that to you later today too.
Have a great day,
buy some art.
Buy some of my Art, please.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio ~ New ART ~

"Dragon Breath"
The Quote that inspired the work:
You may be dead broke and that's a reality, but in spirft may be brimming over with optimism, joy, and energy;
the reality of your life may result from many outside factors,
none of which you can control.
Your attitudes, however,
reflect the ways in which
you evaluate what is happening.

Quote for the day
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Elie Wiesel
I am not average, I am not average, I am not average.
I will accomplish my goals and move them forward with
persistence, determination, virtue, faith, intelligence and talent.
I will.
Watch me.
I will make it.
I don't fail, I just try again. I just never

BAD! Kitty Art Studio Quote of the day
If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun,
your remaining attachments will suddenly come
to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed.
Such an occurrence serves as the basis for enlightenment.
But this is something only you know.
You can't explain it to others.
Or if, while you're walking, standing, sitting, or lying in a quiet grove, you see a light, regardless of whether it's bright or dim, don't tell others and don't focus on it.
It's the light of your own nature.
Of if, while you're walking, standing, sitting, or lying in the stillness and darkness of night, everything appears as though in daylight, don't be startled.
It's your own mind about to reveal itself.
Or if, while you're dreaming at night, you see the moon and stars in all their clarity, it means the workings of your mind are about to end.
But don't tell others.
As she wandered the virtual countryside
looking for the perfect
place to call
she tripped upon a small stone in the road
along the way.
She picked up the stone and put it in her
pocket and continued her journey.
Later she tripped among several other
small stones in her path.
Each she picked up
and placed in her pockets.
When she arrived just outside the place she was looking
for the towns people ran to her aid
and carried her into
the town square to be amazed
at the boulders
the Small Woman had carried
so far.
Thinking of them as small obstacles,
she never questioned their
The realization of others humans
taking notice of her strength and character
began to praise her.
She only replied,
"I did not know they were boulders."
"I came with what I had and what
I have found along the way."
A pocket full of rocks.
And the realization
that mountains can be
moved one pebble at a time.

Have a great Monday!
New A.I.M. magnets added and some NEW Vintage items as well...And of course there's the Art Special of the day (it's a Fairy World, BTW) and new work coming soon.
Still looking for that opportunity for raising funds for my dream to buy an off grid home, and produce green energy, organic food, and Art! Also create a healing center on the land for those in need of sanctuary.
If you know someone that may want to sell a farm or mini-farm in the KY region of the world...Or know of investors, grants, funding for such a venture, please help.
You can also help buy supporting living artist (namely me) by buying something from me. Every penny I make is going to buying a home...
call it Heather-aid.
