Making the nü Icon Movie

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The nü Icon Movie was in creative process for close to a year. To create the stunning images you see throughout the movie I worked with photographer Kevin Thom. We traveled across Canada to the rainforest in British Columbia to immerse ourselves in nature. We also filmed a number of scenes in the Conversation parks in my hometown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

To create this year’s nü Icon Movie I did dozens of solo shots along with leading two group nü Icon Intensives. Many of the solo shots included elaborate hair, makeup, headpieces, costumes and set elements.  My studio was brimming with Iconic Essence art all year!

 

nü Icon Intensive

The first nü Icon Intensive started with 7 of the nü Icons from my current nü Icon Program.  Almost every continent was represented with people from across Canada, USA, Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, a true Rainbow Tribe!

Everyone had their moment in the spotlight to shine their unique Iconic Essence. It was beautiful to witness.

After working together for close to a year, in the nü Icon Program, we had formed such a Soul Family bond. Being together in person left such a loving imprint on my soul, I will never forget the profound magic we experienced together!

Check out the behind the scenes nü Icon Intensive with my current clients.

 

Rainbow Dragon nü Icons

The second nü Icon Intensive was with creative spiritual entrepreneurs that I’ve been on the journey with for some time. We’ve all been riding the dragon for a number of years weaving our magic in the world.

 

nü Icon portal creation process

During our Intensive we created portals to open space for the next level of our unique expression and business success. There was a glorious feeling of resting into the feeling of being met by others who understand the entrepreneurial path with all its challenges and ecstatic opportunities. There is something so invigorating and peaceful about being with people who ‘get it’.

Check out our behind the scenes creative process.

 

nü Icon Singing Circle

All of the singing you hear in the nü Icon Movie was recorded during our Intensive. Then Kevin Thom produced our sounds into the music you hear throughout the movie.

Making Rainbow Canoe
There were lots of behind the scenes creations for costumes, headpieces, set elements, planing meetings and the biggest construction project was creating the Rainbow Feathered Canoe.

My Top 10 Highlights and Lowlights of 2013

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

2013 has been an incredible year, filled with wild creativity, epic adventures, superstar encounters, deep nourishing love and bliss in my body!

With any wholistic journey the bliss comes with some hiccups too.  There have been some epic highs and some sad lows. I’d like to share my highlights and lowlights with you to inspire you and give you the whole truth.

My Top 10 Highlights of 2013

1. Creating nü Icon: The Movie

2013-top10-nu-icon-movie

nü Icon: The Movie was an innovative movie experience where the audience was guided through a vision quest to discover their Iconic Essence.

I had been playing with the idea of guiding a Global Vision Quest for years and I wanted to take it to another level.  The movie was an experiment in creativity, content delivery and ultimately creating marketing and business as art.  Creating the movie felt the same as when I create any other type of art, it took me on a wild journey into places I never imagined and taught me about love, beauty, spiritual depth and the magic that happens when you allow yourself to be a channel for inspiration!

It was especially magical to include 7 powerful, iconic women in the creative process and highlight their Iconic Essence. nü Icons featured in the movie: Jena La Flamme, Deborah Skye King, Ariel White, Christina Morassi, Renee Airya, Ali Shanti and Rose Cole.

Working with Kevin Thom as the photographer and editor of the movie was also deeply rewarding and elevated both of us to nü heights!

 

2. nü Icon Contest

2013-top10-nu-contest

Part of the nü Icon movie experience included a contest where people were invited to create something that expressed their Iconic Essence for a chance to win a scholarship for the 2014 nü Icon program.

I was blown away by the potent power of this nü Icon Contest!  People around the world created stunning art, photos, poetry and videos to express their Iconic Essence. All the entries were posted on our nü Icon movie facebook group and created such lively engagement, you could feel the energy pulsating!

Marija Milicevic won the nü Icon Contest and will be beginning her year of mentorship in the 2014 nü Icon program. Congratulations Marija!

 

3. Screening nü Icon: The Movie in Hollywood

2013-top10-ecstatic-wealth

It was such an honor to screen part of nü Icon: The Movie at Christina Morassi’s Ecstatic Wealth Live Event in Hollywood.

Christina is a dear friend who I love and respect. Both of us have been growing our businesses at the same time and it was so inspiring to see the wild success she has built with her Ecstatic Wealth Brand and to be included in her ‘Ecstatic Wealth Live Event’ by sharing my own success.  It was also fun to reunite with  five of the nü Icons featured in the film, by calling them on stage with their rainbow colors!

I created a special dress for the event, made of hundreds of white feathers. Wherever I walked I left a trail of feathers!

 

4. Masterminding with Richard Branson on Necker Island

2013-top10-necker

What a surreal opportunity to travel to Necker Island and participate in Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite Mastermind.

Richard Branson is a billionaire entrepreneur who has revolutionized the concept of being a personal brand. He creates his whole life and business as an epic adventure filled with fun.  Experiencing his island home along with the other brilliant entrepreneurs that were present has forever shifted me.

I traveled there with a group of Goddess Women led by Renee Airya. The whole experience was amazing on every level!

 

5. Lifestyle Up-Level

2013-top10-greens

I’ve been shifting my lifestyle and eating habits dramatically over the past few years. I became a Certified Raw Chef and have shifted my diet to 80% raw. This year I felt a huge up-level in my energy as a result of having my morning green juice along with an infrared sauna and a 1-2 hour hike in the forest! I feel so nourished as I indulge in all my exquisite self care practices.

Another big up-level for me was finally realizing a long-standing desire to do a 3-day Juice Cleanse and a full month of eating strictly greens!  It was intense, but richly rewarding!

 

6. Business Heroine Magazine Cover

2013-top10-business-heroine

Being featured on the cover of Business Heroine Magazine made my heart glow with pride. After such a journey to create my own business success I feel blessed to be part of a movement of creative spiritual people who are claiming their power to make money and thrive on all levels!

 

7. International Soul Art Day

2013-top10-isad

Thousands of people around the world joined us on International Soul Art Day to create Soul Art for the day. Joining me live in my studio: Charu Morgan, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Lisa Sonora Beam, Charlotte Lascelles and Laura Hames Franklin.

I believe art has the power to heal, inspire and birth nü worlds! It was amazing to discover so many others love art as much as I do!

 

8. Soul Art Supernova!

2013-top10-covers

I’ve always been a prolific artist with an endless flow of creative ideas, inspiration and the ability to birth ideas into reality. But this year was out-of-this-world in terms of creativity and divine inspiration. It felt like a Soul Art Supernova!

One of the creations I’m most excited about is the birth of the Soul Art Certification Master Shaman Level. This is the culmination of over a decade of creative process, journeys and art. Expressing and teaching how to be a Soul Art Shaman ignites my spirit!

 

9. Deepening my relationship with Kevin

kevin-laura

Kevin Thom and I have been partners for 5 years. We are creative soul mates for sure!

We are partners both personally and professionally. Kevin is the genius photographer who helps me realize my visions.  He is also the grounding force that reminds me that love is the most important thing, no matter what! I always feel unconditionally loved in his magnificent presence, what a blessing!

This is a photo from our 2013 Mexico trip.  I’m so excited about everything we have shared already and all the adventures that await us. We’re starting 2014 with a trip to Hawaii, leaving in just a few weeks!

 

10. Diving in!

2013-top10-cave-bikini

2013 was the year I dove in! Literally, I feel like I plunged into my dreams with my whole heart. I gave this year everything I’ve got and more. I have been blown away by the magic that splashed around me as I surrendered to my path.

This photo is from my trip to Mexico where I surprised myself by being the first person to raise my hand saying “Yes, I’ll jump into the cave water!”.  My internal thoughts: “Yes, I’ll be the first to stand up in front of everyone in my bikini and jump into the dark water that I have no idea what temperature it is or what’s on the bottom, but I’ll do it and everyone can watch and decide if they want to do it too!”

 

Ahhh……2013 has been incredible!

But to be completely honest, I must give you the balanced perspective of this epic year and share some lowlights too.

 

My Top 10 Lowlights of 2013

1. Ending a contract with a private client. I was deeply saddened to end this relationship as it felt like a break-up.  When I enter working relationships I give it  my whole-heart and when something doesn’t go its full intended run it feels like a miscarriage. It was a lowlight to experience the sudden end of this contract.

2. Making the decision to no longer work privately with clients. Although this was an incredibly empowering decision, that came from the realization that I want to focus more energy on creating big projects for big audiences rather than working one-on-one, it was hard to let this go. I felt like I was disappointing people and risking the loss of their connection.

3. Worrying too much.  We have a joke on my team about how I like to reinvent the wheel. As much fun as it is to create nü innovative projects and birth art, I find I stress and worry about it working out. I wonder how it will all come together and what I need to do to make things happen.

4. Judging myself harshly. I am my own worst critic, anyone who works with me knows this. I have justified this by saying I want things to be great, which is true, but I am realizing the damage this does to my spirit. It hurts my heart when I’m so critical of myself. It was a lowlight to feel the pain in my heart of my own criticism.

5. Complaining.  I do believe complaining has its place to help us clarify what we like and what we don’t like. I also know within myself when I’ve crossed the line of clarity and when I am stuck in the mud of complaining. It was a lowlight to witness myself complain more than I’d like to.

6. Holding a grudge. As much as I’ve tried I still hold a grudge about something that happened in my past. I keep thinking I’m over it but then it pops up again. It was a lowlight to watch myself spin in the grips of this grudge yet again!

7. Being late. I typically pride myself on being very professional, organized and on-time. A lowlight this year was not being able to live up to my own standards. I was late with a number of emails and meetings.

8. Letting Twitter go. With so many different social media tools and tactics I was starting to feel overwhelmed by it all. I realized I didn’t really enjoy twitter and so I let it go. This was a powerful decision for me as it freed me up, but the lowlight was wondering if I’d made a mistake by letting go of something that has the potential to reach more people.

9. Wasting.  I wasted way too much energy on worrying. Our energy is such a precious resource, it was a lowlight to enable myself to waste so much.

10. The death of my cat Aslan. This was my deepest sadness and lowlight of 2013. Aslan was my best friend for close to 20 years.  He journeyed with me through all the highs and lows of my business creation. I still cry when I think about his powerful, wise presence and his unconditional love. I’m so grateful I can visit his grave during my daily hikes. He was the most precious gift and it breaks my heart that I can no longer pet him.

aslan

 

All in all it has been a fantastic year, the highs and the lows, the light and the dark, I love it all!

Thank you for being part of this incredible year!

Hollywood Hike

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

I was in Hollywood this past week presenting nü Icon: The Movie at Christina Morassi’s Ecstatic Wealth Event. It was an absolutely stellar event with bursting moments of ecstasy!

In the land of celebrity, fame and star power it was an exceptional place to guide a Vision Quest. It was as if a portal had opened up between the real world and the imagined world and we could create the life of our dreams.

Christina Morassi created such a sacred space with her Star Power Activating Genius.  I felt so honored to be part of her stellar event and witness her incredible ability to light up a stage like a Rockstar and lead with effortless power.

5 of the nü Icons featured in the movie joined me on stage, in rainbow order, Jena LaFlamme, Ariel White, Christina Morassi, Renee Airya and Ali Shanti, to share a glimpse into their own Iconic Essence. You’ll have to watch the movie to get the full story.

I could feel the power of the room and the magnetic energy of the audience as we journeyed through a Vision Quest together to discover our Iconic Essence.

I wore a dress made entirely of white feathers to express a visual wing to guide everyone on their sacred journey to discover who they really came her to be.

The inner landscape is vast and rich. The experience confirmed for me that our Iconic Essence starts within and effortlessly blossoms out in the world when we claim the true desire that dwells in our spirit.

I was so moved by all the people who came up to me after to personally thank me and share parts of their Iconic Essence.

After the event I wanted to find a place in nature to reflect and listen for more insights.

I discovered a trail to the Iconic Hollywood sign, which seemed like the perfect place to anchor in the magical insights.

You can still join in to watch and participate in nü Icon: The Movie to be guided on your own Vision Quest to discover your Iconic Essence.

Transform Your Fears so you can Follow Your Heart and Make Money

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

transform-fears-blog-preview

Fear is the biggest barrier to creating the life and career of your dreams.

It is like a cage that imprisons you with small thinking and narrow choices. Fear creates doubt and makes you question your value and worth. It convinces you to play small to keep yourself safe.

I know this because fear held me back for many years (without even realizing it!). It can be a sneaky thing that shows up as logical solutions and simple ‘shoulds’ or it can show up more blatantly as pure paralysis!

If you truly want a thriving Iconic life  you absolutely must learn how to transform your fears! Otherwise you will forever be living just below the radar of your potential. Yuck!

Watch this video where I share 5 simple steps to transform your fears so you can follow your heart and make money.

 

Learning how to transform your fears is just one of the modules I’ll be covering in the upcoming ‘Follow your Heart & Make Money’ Coach Certification program.

One of the richest life experiences I’ve had is linking the deep gifts within my heart with the world through my career. I would love to teach you how to do this and empower you to guide others to do the same.

Global Vision Quest Channeled Drawing

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Guest blog post – by Antonia Wibke Heidelmann
Visionary Channel Artist & Magnetic Image Designer

Global Vision Quest Channeled drawing

This Global Vision Quest channeled drawing manifested with the intention to receive Divine Guidance and support for the Global Vision Quest initiated through Laura Hollick.

I attuned and centered my energy field using my voice as a channel before I began to draw. You can listen the Sound Cloud here:
http://soundcloud.com/antonia-wibke-yemanja/121011-global-vision-quest-w

The way the drawing manifested is revealing it’s message to me as follows:

From the swirl of the divine feminine and masculine source (lilac and blue spiral at the left bottom), two paths are created to follow the flowing waters of life to be reunited in  the heart center where with the breath of spirit the fires of our passion are inflamed.

On this path the whale in the deep waters reminds us of the ancient wisdom that can be unlocked from our body’s cellular memory through relationship to oneself and each other (what looks like bubbles reminds me of the shape of the cells connected to form a tissue or organ, body or relational or co-creative collective consciousness).

There is an empty field like shape (on the right side) that is ours to plant, grow and harvest what we are here to create in this life and from which we grow (green plant) and connect with spirit (figure with the lilac hair).

Through this connection our fires keep burning, some tears are shed and from the breathing and being in the center of our sacred human heart we are able to unveil or open up to see multi-dimensionally (rainbow eye) into the essence of our being (star in the eye) and connect with the cosmic space and mystic creatures (the eyelashes look like antennae in rainbow colors) pointing to the space and the stars and lead to the mermaid figure on top – a symbol of a sensuality, freedom, love, mystery, flow, effortless being.

What seems to me the crystallized message here in support of finding our iconic essence in this Global Vision Quest:

Dive deep into your internal waters and relationships, dance to the feminine and masculine union, look at what grows in your life and see how it all connects back into the heart through your breath of life. What you love, who you love, what fires up your passion is what opens you up to your iconic essence. The key is in the wisdom of our bodies and relationships that we grow that are supported and embraced by the breath of spirit.
