KALI / THE DIVINE FEMININE / PROCESS COMPLETE . A transformation made possible by talented make up indian artist @makeupbygeeta follow by her words to depict the manifestation of divination. Headpiece by @l_enchanteur "Devi Kalaratri. Kalaratri means the Dark night or Night of Death. She is the dark and violent aspect of DURGA, a stark manifestation of goddess Kali. In order to kill the demons Rhumba and Nishumba, Durga removed her golden exterior and appeared in her primal form as KAlatri. As we progress along our spiritual path, we come to point where our ego digs in, refusing to budge and the Divine seems further away than ever. Kalahari sees us through this troubling time. She is visualized as naked, riding a donkey, carrying a sword and skeletal lightning-bolt, and with hands in mudras that grant bones and liberate one from fear. She dwells at the top of the head( sahasrasara chakra), where name and form are transcended. She rules the planet Saturn( Shani). She is invoked and honored on the seventh of NAvatri ( Saraswati Saptami). Her worship destroys demons, ghosts, and black magic and her grace allows us to experience the dark radiance of non dual Reality.” Navratri is the festival of nine nights celebrating the goddess and her 9 avatars. This festival is symbolic of gaining victory over the chaos residing within one, and thus obtaining a superior state of existence. #jaikalima #kali makeupbygeeta #museseries #bodypaintbygeeta

The Twilight zone / Think Different means get out of your comfort zone. Don t try to impress anyone except to be true and honest with yourself. What you are building is for a lifetime. The growth will teach you so much more that you will be able to realize that perseverance is the rule number 1. The process becomes magic. You have a sort of superpower because you can see your perception changing in slow motion. this is where the zone becomes the twilight.#thetwilightzone body painting @thevirginartiste talent artist @magdalinedavis #newyork #bushwick

🔥 LIVE FIRE / This is where all the fear dissolve!! Photography is my sacred tool for releasing my inner visions and dreams. In 2008, I spend a magic night with the bushmen and Peter Beard in Botswana during the Pirelli Calendar 2009 project . After singing for hours, the bushmen started to challenge the guests to jump over the fire. I was mesmerized by the force of their collective and let go of my fears to only be aware of the call for transformation. After this trip, my life changed, moved to New York and decided to take the path of the Vision quest. #artistlife 🌑📸#peterbeard #botswana #pirellicalendar #exclusif

« The Collective Force » - Once upon a time in New York City, I found one of the most amazing women that i have ever met in my life.

In a search of a creative life and a collective force among women from the diaspora, I saw the growth of a strong friendship and support between us. I mean.. it s overwhelming when i think about what we experienced together through laughter and creative projects for the last decade. It s an example of the unlimited possibilities that women can thrive and nurture an honest bond for life without feeling in competition.

The world created a division and a competition between gender but it shouldn't be this way. We are responsible to make our life better fulfill with goodness, honesty and love. I might be dreaming.. but it works… i m living it. Again thank you for the most wonderful time spend with those magic women. And thank you to George Brown for opening the door of his photo studio for many years and help me to grow.

Time #collage #2012 Could you imagine that each year someone will ask you « when are you gonna have a baby? « Society dictates that our adult lives follow a specific formula. Move out, settle down with a partner, get married, have a baby, retire and die. Once I stepped out into the artist life, open my vision to embrace the abundance of creativity, and understanding the complexity of relationship, No one should ask you this question. 🙏🏽🌎 .

THE COLLECTIVE FORCE #senegal
For the last 11 years I v been traveling almost every year to Saint Louis du Senegal, the city where my dad was born… but also the country who opened my heart to become an artist.
The support, kindness and beauty of my dear senegalese family and friends though me so much about the importance of sharing, caring and being together as a ritual for sustainability and empowering each other. Today I applied those principles in New York to create a women collective where every woman has a voice. #thegreatvision

METAMORPHOSE 1 / KALI ( #Blackgoddess)- Amazing Make up by @makeupbygeeta 👑 by @l_enchanteur photo assistant @thenovalens. Kali is one Goddess who is Venus/ OYA under many names depending on the country and or religion. The planet made of sulfuric acid and the very alchemical substance that makes war on our bodies, emotions and intellect making us do immoral and unnatural acts.
She represents the eternal mother principle of nature.
Kali is the whom principal , the receptive , the void.
The relationship between man and woman, or rather god and goddess in the Puranas, serves as an allegory to explain the impact of the mind on the world and the impact of the world on the mind.
We are conditioned to assume that mind is superior to matter, hence the attribution of male form to the mind and female form to matter seems like yet another case of gender prejudice.
"You can not appreciate the light without the darkness. Awarness of life and death intertwined together to the infinite. the dark represent the universe.. stars shine out of space. Space is the basic of everything. we pay attention to the object but not the subject, the substance of life." Alan Watts" #fiercewarrior #mothernature #kali #fullmoon

I closed my eyes and I felt my inner growth becoming one with everything around me.
A divine, soft energy took my breath away. I was possessed by a very old spirit..a woman with unlimited power. From the back of my spine, from my head to my toes, I was able to channel her presence, my body was her body. She felt rejuvenated through my soul and came to teach me a beautiful truth: “ We are only passing through the body, our souls will transform many times, and the divine feminine force is the eternal rebirth between life and death” #kali
