+ What did you dream about last night? +

 I always have multiple dreams and travel far as well as bring back messages for myself to continue the growth of my vessel! 

 The first dream a flock of ravens came to me symbolising a message. Ill let you know when it comes into being

 The Second dream I was in my brother’s old room which was opening into a typical British forest in daytime. I could see Foxes and strange money men surrounding me from a far. I called for my brother as I thought they where dangerous but he opened the door and told me they are friendly. As soon as I let my guard down they all came closer and were pleasant animals who needed some help and advise. 

 

 + What’s the story behind iamVibes? +

 iamVibes began during a meditation about 5 years ago. I was channeling an image of the Hamsa, at the time not knowing what it was, along with an alignment of sacred geometry. This was then followed by the word “HAMSA” being channeled into my mind. After some research and digging around the internet I realised what it was, and its power. From here I felt I had to do something creative with the symbol and spread its message of protection. At the time I was working below a t-shirt printing store so ideas starting flying and I thought it would be a great chance to create clothing which inspires people to be protected; mentally, spiritually and physically as well spreading their light to others.

At the core of iamVibes is a story of two wonderful female beings that came into my life over 2/3 years. Both of these wonderful souls had gone through very intense abusive traumas as young women and were striving to gain more light in their lives and break the negative patterns that existed within them. When we met and these truths came out I started to understand the positive energy I hold from my balanced upbringing, and how I could help and inspire these two souls to heal themselves.

 This was when I learnt of how powerful the merging of male and female energies can be once you tune into them within yourself and how we all need that balance.

 During these magical periods I really started to understand the female pain body as a whole which sits on society still. This experience really started to align with my vision of the iamVibes Hamsa and how all souls need protection. It just so happens that the Hamsa is a symbol widely known to protect and enhance the female energy. Coincidence?… no. Magic?… yes!

+ What advice would you give your younger self? + 

 If I had an interstellar journey and could reach through space and time I believe I would say these words...

 Dearest higher self, keep dreaming, bringing back your visions, creating and sharing your heart and mind. You have a wonderful journey a ahead, you will experience  love,  adventure, solitude, music and magic. You will also learn of the darkest energies as the waves get rough but your light will always prevail. Continue to live life with a smile and be strong, you will shine brightly and inspire others to smile no matter how cloudy the day. Keep climbing back to our home, the view is rather wonderful from up here. 

 

+ What can you not get through a day without doing ?  +

 I am not one to need much apart from the obvious healthy food and sleep BUT the things which keep me aligned and balanced day to day are Classical Music, Meditation and Yoga. The combination of these three "things" have really changed the speed my mind works and brought me to a slightly more peaceful place. Great tools to keep tapped in. 

 

+ What was the last record you played? +

 Hmmm If you mean vinyl, it was probably THE ORB feat David Gilmour " Metallic Spheres " 

 

+ Who's your idol? +

 My Idol would be every human pushing their own boundaries and shifting their own paradigm's to better themselves and bring light into the world. Anyone who is attempting to reach beyond and find their heart should be acknowledged for their efforts.

+ Take us back to you you in 1995... + 

 I would have been 6 years old running around, dancing , probably trying to play football with my older brother. 

 

+ If you could be someone else for the day who would it be? +

 If I could be anyone else for the day, I would be myself in 15 years time. I would love to see how I felt, where I was , who I was with, how I have grown and what I had created.

 

+ What's your message to the universe? +

 I am you and what I see is me! Thank you for this vessel and opportunity to explore human emotion and creativity. I look forward to every journey to come in this life and the next! See you in my dreams later
