The earth is abundant with life
but not all life is rooted to the earth.
Man moves about un-tethered and
it is not until he truly becomes rooted
that his life takes shape and form.
Born to this world
attached by a cord to his mother
he is cut free to grow and evolve
shaped by his own destiny, his own
free will and the impact of others.
The result is a unique design
filled with different patterns
textures, colors, smells, sounds, tastes
and feelings woven together to create
his life here on earth.

The darkness is only a shadow , a lack of light, a lack of clarity or understanding. In my new book I describe a healing session where I am releasing one of these shadows from my body and restore the light within and with it Clarity.
From my upcoming book,
It is amazing what we store in our bodies. When I was releasing energy from the physical pain, I was also releasing emotions that I had stored away so deeply, I didn't even know I had them. I almost never consciously feel anger toward anyone, yet there it was, hidden inside of me and apparently eating away at my health. I had felt intense sadness, a kind of grief leaving my chest and lungs. During the session, while I was releasing energy, the healer was replacing the energy of my bottled up emotions, with love, compassion, and light. I remember seeing the thick dark energy swirling like a tornado inside. As it swirled, I could feel it dissolving away and becoming lighter and lighter until I could not feel it anymore. It left my body. Where it went, I do not know. What replaced it was light. It filled my body like a waterfall fills a pond. Once the emotions had left my body there was stillness and I felt relief, tranquility, and a sense of calm. Clarity was present.
Come sail away with me
It's a cold winter day
and the breeze is strong
we can sail the night away.
Come sail away with me
the sun is setting
and the sky
has a vibrant haze
Colors of gold and orange
swim across the sea
with dancing waves of grey
Your heart keeps me warm
as the sun goes down.
I swim in the ocean of your
Come sail away with me.

Specialties: Nature Photography, Living Art, Digital Art and Design, Healing Arts, Feng Shui. Margot Sherry Bogdanow-Carrera’s lifelong dedication to nature photography, her preferred art form for portraying this Earth, the planet unto which we are born and bound to preserve, is evident throughout her website: www.CarreraFineArt.com. Nature, in return, provides us with everything necessary for the spiritual journey we take while we remain on Earth. Too many of us, preoccupied with our daily struggle to survive, have lost sight of that promise, forgetting that if we had cared for Earth, there would be no struggle. Margot Carrera’s avowed insightful and artistic intent is to remind humankind of their connection to and with Nature, to remember that every one of us are – or should be – devoted stewards of this Earth. One can readily observe her special bond with every object she photographs and how this inspires each memorable image. “When you look at my website,” says Carrera, “you will discover at least one singular image that speaks directly to you and helps you to recall your own beautiful connection to Earth."
