Welcome

Welcome to CONSULTING WITH MUSES, a website populated with my written musings on a variety of themes in no particular order, along with my artistic creations and other offerings, including tarot readings and anti-racism resources.

While working on a writing project, a mentor once told me, “consult with your muses and then work your magic.” His guidance beautifully encapsulated what I believe to be the essence of writing and other creative processes: a union between personal power and a deeper well of knowledge that extends beyond oneself. The name of this website arises from his words.

Writing and art-making are practices through which I come to better understand my internal landscape and the external realm in which I live. My pieces are thus deeply personal, political, and spiritual. They serve as windows and mirrors; openings into new worlds and reflections of present circumstances. My wish is for my works to be aligned with the wills of my muses.

I hope you are nourished and stretched towards new places by virtue of your time here. Blessings to you,

Gabriela
