Memoirs of a Tantric Queer Artist or Sex, Drugs and Classic VW Bus Life - You Decide Steemit

Greetings Steemit Community!

My name is Raynefyre and this is my #introduceyourself post. I am really excited about this platform and to be co-creating a new wave of freedom and growth here on @Steemit. I have a broad spectrum experiences to share. Consider this my modern memoir. I believe that my contribution to Steemit will help to promote deeper authenticity though self reflection and hopefully allow me to experience personal transparency and some clarity too. I also believe that my writing will help me manifest a lifestyle that suits my soul; by connecting me to other like minded visionaries, rainbow warriors & rebel dreamers. Shoutout and gratitude to @greenman for inviting me to this flourishing online community.

Who am I?

This is a question I have been asking myself since I was a young tomboy growing up on the vast Canadian prairies in the eighties. There was always a sense of being different and I found it hard to fit in. We lived in a Christian influenced, conservative place, where roles and dreams were shaped by our biology. For as long as I could remember, I was adventurous, loved playing outside and favoured riding my bike fast off homemade jumps. Always hanging out with mostly boys, my younger brother and I climbed trees and jungle gyms to the highest point and built the coolest forts. I was rough and tough and sported bruises on my knees like badges of honour.

Both of my parents worked away from home during the day. We walked 20 minutes to and from school and spent a lot of time being cared for by other families in the neighbourhood. When we were young I looked out for my little bro, and when I reached twelve, I had the responsibility of his care until our folks came home around dinner time. I always wanted to be a good girl for my parents and I also resented being forced to care for my little bro. You see, this took away my freedom. He became my shadow and it made it hard to just freely play. I had to choose activities that he could do too. Luckily we liked a lot of the same things, but I wanted to have my own friends and explore what I wanted to without him watching. Always pushing the boundaries, I chose to do things that, if my parents only knew, I would have been grounded for eternity. I played the good girl in the house and in the great outdoors, I was leader of the rebellion. TBC.

Hello my name is Raynefyre

Fast forward to 2018 and the sharp edges of the eager-to-please-good-girl and bad ass deviant have melted into the queer-hearted, adventure seeking, spiritually driven, creatrix that I am today.

You can FOLLOW ME as I post memoirs and media from my travels as a wandering queer hearted soul. Sometimes I will mention my current LOVE/HATE relationship to Rosie, my 1971 VW campmobile and MUSE. We have covered a lot of ground over the past 3 years. Driving over twenty thousand kilometres exploring the western portion of North America. Rosie and I have been together for seven and a half years so as you can imagine we have encountered a series of breakdowns (engine overhauls) and breakthroughs over these formative years.

Usually personified, I’d like to give Rosie credit for putting up with my spontaneous nature. If we didn’t make it to the middle of the Black Rock Desert in 2016, we would have never connected to @Greenman and I would have never been introduced to the world of cryptocurrencies or Steemit for that matter. More on driving and repairing classic German buses, BURNING MAN and my interest in #Bitcoin and other Altcoins another day.

Modern Memoirs

Most of my stories will share the common thread of connection and relationship. These include family, friends, lovers, boyfriends, girlfriends, an ex-husband, business partners, partners in crime, haters, teachers, plant medicines, spiritual practices, money, places, my local and global communities, my identities, animals, my guides and my higher self. I will share my views and experiences in self discovery through, meditation, yoga, art, tantra, queer sex, BDSM, polyamory, board sports, ecosex, cannabis, LSD, psilocybin, ayahuasca, dance, gender expression, body modification, tattoos, sacred geometry, travel and love.

These days I earn a living as a freelance graphic designer and visual artist. I also sell sacred geometry paintings on round wooden panels. You can see some of my work on Instagram. As a side gig I assist in cultivating medicinal cannabis on Vancouver Island. I am even launching my own hand crafted topical cannabis healing products at Vancouver's 420 festival. More on that soon.

This year I began studying and practicing tantra and BDSM. At 35, I realized my passion is erotic body work with a focus on giving women, trans and gender variant adults sexual/sensual pleasure, full body ecstasy and orgasms! My current desire to guide people to find radical self love, healthy body image and sexual empowerment through guided breath practices, conscious touch and intimacy.

Thanks for taking the time to read my intro post. I feel a mix of vulnerability and courage sharing my current authenticity to the world wide web. I hope you can connect with my content and it inspires you to follow the beat of your own heart so you may live your wildest dreams. PEACE, LOVE AND UPVOTES.

Thank you soooooooooooooooooo much dear.

Awesome. Welcome to steemit. You are going to Love it here. I am a Canadian Artist also... planning to someday move out to Tofino and paint all day long.

·

Nice to meet you @offgridlife! What's your creative expression? I'm going to check you out. Tofino is breathtaking. Have you visited before?

·
·

I paint in oil and watercolour from the kayak ... usually landscapes from the Rideau River, Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park and on Lake Superior. I have been to Vancouver Island Victoria and Nanaimo but never made it out to Tofino but from what I have seen and heard it is a great place for landscape artists so I need to visit

·
·
·

I love that you paint from your kayak. You have a lovely backdrop along the Rideau River. I especially love the autumn colours. There is some amazing places to kayak near Tofino. I hope you do make it there one day.

·
·
·
·

Me too ... do you still get the bright orange and red autumn colours out there ? I wonder if I would miss the colours we have here out East. I was out playing pick up hockey wearing a flannel shirt this morning so maybe we will be getting Vancouver like Winters out this way in a few years ????? Today was + 12 and I washed the car in the driveway ... February First for me.

Welcome to Steemit. I’m a glass artist in Canada also. Great to have more artists like you joining Steemit.

Welcome to Steemit. Great Introduction post. I am a Traveller and Photographer from Canada. Nice to see more Canadians here.

·

Thanks @daisyphotography. What part of Canada are you from?

·
·

Merrickville, ON. Ever been out this way ? It is almost as nice as Vancouver... almost. Our spring summer and autumns are very pleasant. Winters are a bit long, but great for snow shoeing and ice fishing on all the area lakes, if you like to snow shoe and ice fish.

·
·
·

·

Happy self love travels my friend! Thanks for your welcome. This is fun!

My current favourite mantra worth sharing for cultivating more self love.
WARNING - This can create HUGE shifts. For improved self worth, repeat 108 times out loud for only 40 days:
I LOVE MY LIFE
I LOVE MY BODY
I LOVE MYSELF

This mantra was gifted to me last summer by a radical self love Tantricorn. Enjoy!
