The grand premier of the “Healing” Auracature Art Collection last week(end) was a great success and Amanda Menard, owner of Amandala’s Fine Dining Restaurant in Peterborough Ontario, has requested that 12/22 pieces of the collection continue being shown at her establishment.

Some of the collection being featured at Amandala’s can be seen at the The Auracature Art Website

Last Saturday night, an Ennismore resident, won the door prize: the “Healing” Auracature: “Boundless.”  It was really exciting.

As the artist of this very special collection I posted this expression of my thanks for this collection being publicly debuted by posting a short YouTube thanks before the Saturday theme night.

If you can still head out to Amandala’s for drinks and a delicious meal, you can sit in take in this magnificently meaningful expression of “Healing.”

I posted these two articles last week before the show.

We were featured in the Peterborough Examiner and with a little elbow grease and communal effort, we got the Spelling of “AURACATURE” Corrected in the headline.

It’s Auracature not Auracture! Sterling Sinclair’s new “Healing” Auracature Art Collection’s BIG Saturday night Debut at Amandala’s in Peterborough get put in paper! Spelled Wrong! How funny is that!? Sept 28 2019

You can find more information about the process of canvas creation, the spontaneous nature of Auracature Art, a bit more of my Biography and information regarding the inspiration of this collection at my art web page:

Auracature.com

I drew this entire collection with my Wild Turkey feather quill shown in the above photos.  I did the “Healing” Auracature Art collection when I embarked on my healing and miracle quest.  I received my miracle around the long weekend of August 2019.  When I began rapidly healing, I knew it was time to share this collection with the world.  I hope all who view these pieces, find “Healing” to be an inspirational, assuring hug, that joyfully sings:  “NEVER EVER GIVE UP!  THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!!”

Yesterday, I found some reflections / poems that I wrote in the spring of 2019.  I tried writing as a neuroplasticity exercise in an effort to overcome my rapidly advancing Neurocognitive Impairment.  At 52 years old, I could find no help.  I was even banned from group activities at the Belleville Alzheimer’s Association.  When the Alzheimer’s Association won’t meet with you when other people are around, you know it is bad.  The stigma is real out there.  I had almost hit the absolute bottom and came very close to the edge of giving up when I found miracle.  This is the video I filmed yesterday regarding my struggle and hopeful healing path as I conquer the negative effects of neurocognitive impairment.  I am a Neurocognitive Impairment Survivor – NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

People Laughed when Sterling Sinclair said He was a Dragon! Now there is Proof!!! BAM


Us Empaths know these things. Sometimes we just have to wait for confirmation.

I found this file while moving things to set up my new studio. I had no idea this file was even there. A strange place for it too.

I knew that I was a Dragon. I may have viewed the word with a Dragon form and draconic energy, but I was correct. I just knew it

Hey fellow Empaths, trust your gut, visions, intuition. I’m glad that I did.

I went to Brighton High (ENSS).

In about 1983, I presented the original Blue Dragon design for the Gymnasium. I was 15/16 years old. I can’t find a pic. My proposal, was for a 50′ long dragon mural that illustrated the dragon weaving in and out of the wall. A few years later, after I graduated, they painted a 3-D mural of the dragon head inspired by my design.

In the early mid 80’s I was a Blue Dragon

In 1984/5 I won the top Art Student award and Kim (my wife of 30 years) won the top Music Student award in the same year. We were not dating yet and our names are still together on the same trophy. How cool is that.

My first High School Teaching job was at E.N.S.S. too.

Pretty cool how things work out when you are…

Big Dragon Loves To You All,

Sterling


Being an Extremely Sensitive Empath has Its Challenges but The Great Outdoors is Healing: Sterling Sinclair Goes Barefoot Tree Hugging, Walking, Bathing and Sunset Swimming, October 2017


Being an Extremely Sensitive Empath has Its Challenges but The Great Outdoors is Healing: Sterling Sinclair Goes Barefoot Tree Hugging, Walking, Bathing and Sunset Swimming, October 2017

If you are like me, people, yes people, people in general drain you.  The drama never ends whether it be on a sidewalk, at a friend’s house visiting, at a hospital or big stores like Walmart.  

  
Take us to a conference just to listen – bam – drain. 

Have us present – triple bam – ultra drain. 

  
If you are like me, you probably go out and socialize as seldom as possible and live like a hermit as much as possible.  

  
We are naturally social as well as reclusive.  It is an impossible life to live but we find our ways to live it. 

Over the past few weeks, I have had difficulty finding stability because I have been out and about.  

  
So when at my rural  waterfront studio in the woods, I have been seeking restoration.  

  
I hope that these videos give you a sense of peace, calm and home.  

This is a video of me heading out for a walk in the field. I just got back to the studio and immediately had to go for a walk: 

Sterling Sinclair heads out for a walk in the country
Once out in the woods, especially in the fall, I like to kick off my shoes and go walking barefoot in the leaves.  It is astonishingly grounding.  

  
This is a video of me walking barefoot through the leaves: 

Video: Sterling Sinclair goes Walking in the woods
I love it when nature starts to peacefully whisper to me and I am called to hug the trees.

  
 This video is raw and up close. I hope that you gain the sense of being one with the forest: 

Video: Sterling Sinclair Natural Tree Hugging
When I return, especially when it is at sunset or evening, I find that a nature swim or blessed bathing in the lake to be restorative.  I let the waters drain away any pain that I am shedding. 

  
This video is of my going into the lake barefoot. The water for the end of October is really warm. It was so magical with the light twinking on the lake as the sun set.  

Video: Sterling Sinclair kicks off his shoes and walks into the lake
For us extreme empaths, reconnecting with nature and the elements has a way of giving us a rest.  The above moments gave me times to cleanse and re-energize.  Do you do similar activities too. Do you find nature helpful? 

Much love, S

Sterling Sinclair Remembers Gord Downie and Visits the Vigil in Kingston Ontario Oct 18 2017: Photos, Videos, Media Reports, and A Poetic Message


Sterling Sinclair Remembers Gord Downie and Visits the Vigil in Kingston Ontario Oct 18 2017: Photos, Videos, Media Reports, and A Poetic Message

I aspire to be half the man Gord Downie was.  

  
He set an admirable standard whether be family man, activist, musician, poet, or human. 

  
 I never met Mr. Downie, I am a fan like so many other Canadians and beyond.  

  
His bravery to show love and express his passion for justice and life, oozed from his every syllable.

  
 It was an honour to visit the vigil.

  
am so thankful that the city of Kingston provided us the opportunity to sit with our memories of Gord and reflect upon how he inspired each and every one of us.    

  
Many, many people went to the vigil. The signatures signed on the memory banner had to have been in the thousands. 

One Kashechewan First Nation, on James Bay, gentleman visited the vigil earlier in the day.  This is an exerpt from the Whig: 

“He fought for us, for so many things,” Nakogee said. “That really means a lot. The first time I heard somebody that really fought for us was Gordie. We don’t hear that other bands do stuff for First Nations people. Gordie fought for us.

“It’s good that he did that, but it’s sad that he lost the battle. Now he is in our spirits.”

Nakogee was among dozens of people who gathered in Springer Market Square under a cloudless sky and unseasonably warm temperatures to pay their respects to The Tragically Hip’s lead singer, who died Tuesday night after a year-and-a-half-long battle with brain cancer.

Downie’s work to bring attention to the history of residential schools in Canada was among the last chapters in his life and one that fan Richard Noble said many people, including himself, knew nothing about.”

The Whig Article
This is a short video that I took when I went the vigil in Kingston. By the time I got there, only a small number of people were there. The intimate silence was like walking in the air of a hug. 

Video: Sterling Sinclair visits Gord Downie Vigil in Kingston
Today the headlines lit up the news in Gord Downie’s honour. I read not one negative word. 

In Rolling Stone, the voice of the family was expressed. It told of Mr. Downie’s truth: 

“Last night, Gord quietly passed away with his beloved children and family close by,” his family wrote in a statement. “Gord knew this day was coming – his response was to spend this precious time as he always had – making music, making memories and expressing deep gratitude to his family and friends for a life well lived, often sealing it with a kiss … on the lips.

“Gord said he had lived many lives,” they added. “As a musician, he lived ‘the life’ for over 30 years, lucky to do most of it with his high school buddies. At home, he worked just as tirelessly at being a good father, son, brother, husband and friend. No one worked harder on every part of their life than Gord. No one.”

“Thank you everyone for all the respect, admiration and love you have given Gord throughout the years,” his family wrote following his death. “Those tender offerings touched his heart and he takes them with him now as he walks among the stars.”

“In the wake of his diagnosis, Gord only fought harder for what he believed in: social justice, environmentalism and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples,” he added. “Gord did not rest from working for the issues he cared about, and his commitment and passion will continue to motivate Canadians for years to come … He will be sorely missed.”

Rolling Stone article
Today I sat down to process my grief and to reflect upo the person of Gord Downie. As an Auracature artist I began to draw an Auracature, just as I did the night before photos of me leaving the drawing at the vigil are posted below, but thid time, I began writing a message inspired by Gord Downie. 

  
Sterling Sinclair Recites the Message
Gord Downie poem

Oct 19, 2017

“Her Children Die from Centuries of Pain

Kick off your shoes – go dance in the rain.”

“Together We Are One”

By Sterling Sinclair

“Remember not me

Remember the work to be done

It was never about my battle

Their stories had to be sung

The battle’s not over

Much work’s need done

We fight the battle together

Until the battle is won

Upon blood soaked prairies

She gathers her young

How’d she wake in her mourning

Her fallen knight was her son

How can she see the light

From fear we mustn’t run

Look into her black brown eyes

Reserved, her soul was shunned

The fight to live’s not over

The fight has just begun.

Oh Canada, do you even listen?

Sorrow is being Sung

Grieve not my recent passing

Seeking justice is not fun

My death is not the message

I’m a husband, father, son

First peoples are in danger

No matter the spin that is spun

Pour your tears upon the lands

Cuz, healing’s barely begun

If you honour my memory

If I am Canada’s true son

Instead of being saddened

Go out and help someone

The war will be over

The battle will be won

When all people come together

And together we are one.”

The following are photos of my experience at the vigil

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
   
   
 
  

Gord, rest in peace. 

To Gord’s loved ones, I send my sincerest condolences. 

Much Love, Sterling Sinclair

Gord Downie writes a poem /lyrics through Sterling Sinclair a couple of days after Downie died. 

For David Bowie, I sat down and let him inspire words to be written through me during a trance state. It was a beautiful piece. It was well received by few and violently opposed by several more. Nonetheless, it was a magnificent moment for me. I was glad to record such an amazing piece for grieving Bowie fans. 

So this morning, I felt an urger to draw to process my emotions and as I was drawing the Auracature lines, words began to pour out upon the page. In these words, he calls for all of us to seek fair compensation, reconciliation, justice for Canada’s first peoples.

How To: Naked Tree Hugging and Barefoot Hiking may Help You Heal, be Grounded, feel Free to Live. 

 Many indigenous rituals are performed without clothing or with minimal clothing.

Skinny-dipping has been a favourite for young and old alike. 

But have you tried naked tree hugging or nude hiking?

 How about walking in the leaves barefoot? 

 I posted this video “How To” on my Facebook timeline and it has gotten record views. 

The Naked Tree Hugging and Barefoot Walking YouTube Video Above
 In this how to demonstration, I am wearing my hiking shorts just to make sure nothing accidentally swings into the picture and forces an “Adult” video rating.  But the way it is shot, it gives the viewer a good feel for what it is like to be one with nature. 

 I hope this video encourages you to kick off your shoes, walk through those fallen autumn leaves and hug a tree. You’ll be glad you did. 

Cheers, S
