HOW TO BE WEIRD
I grabbed this jaguar photo and its provocative saying from LL because it speaks a profound truth about "YOU". Life is here living as you in order to thrive, and as I say so often to "Celebrate Life!" What you call "you" is an aspect of life, consciousness expressing itself.
We get conditioned early on about what that means; who we are, are supposed to be, how we are supposed to feel or not. Things happen to us, things that may not align with the the world view we have been conditioned to believe, i.e.; "families are supposed to be happy and loving, you are supposed to be some perfect expression of child, no one is supposed to touch you or talk to you that way and if they have then something is wrong with you or there is something to be ashamed of... ". So many thoughts and happenings that can push ones true expression into hiding.
At some point life will call us to do the work of unwinding these stories. Too often though, this happens for people at the end of life, in the middle of crisis or life threatening illness. I suggest we all look a little sooner at the fact that we are all going to die eventually, and that right now life is trying to live through us in the form of this embodiment. When it gets stuck it tends to hurt emotionally, physically, or both.
What if we just regulArly processed our stuff!.?
What if we daily recognized ourselves as energy bodies as well as physical forms and intentionally moved energy through all parts in order to stay vibrant!?
What if we noticed life wanting to live fully through us and opened to its flow and chose where for it to go?
I have experienced and seen over and over again how when we have a desire to experience or express somethings and it's not easily accessible to us for whatever reason then we tend to do other things to soothe that desire. For example; Desire for love or sex turns into need for cookies or ice cream, need to express hurt turns into road rage, pent up emotions leads to drinking and drugging.
It has become clear to me that addiction is just lust for life acting out, desire to live fully but fear of opening up has those feelings coming out sideways and imbibing in things that actually stifle life's flow.
Nona really wants to help the world heal this. She is the current character that best expresses repressed aspects of the One expressing itself as Lucid. We encourage you to find your own divine expression, super hero nature, cartoon character, etc... That expresses that which you may be desiring or fearing to express. The universe is at play ! Now you how will you play with yourself? Ha! Loaded question, yes. Join us in celebration of life and let's bend this thing we call reality into the art that the artist you are wishes to see!
Nona Fender bio
Nona Fender's divine spiritual lineage is Kali, Wonder Woman, Gene and Richard Simmons.
She has arisen at this time to help bring back the Dark Goddess. Nona exudes raw wild love
without the cultural restrain of holding back the truth in order to protect anyone's feelings. The
truth will be revealed even if it chops your head off. She is unabashedly ready to play, pray and
flip the script on your day.
Nonas mantra is "drsyam sariram, ...srim, srim, srim, rawr" which means "consciousness is an
actor/ all that we see is consciousness...beauty, grace, power, rawr".
Her seed sound is "MU" which means "joy", amongst other great things.
Nonas mudra is the triple diamond heart mudra which she made up herself and which speaks
for itself. It is rooted in the 'I love you' mudra and evolved from natural magnetic forces.
Nona is a witch, a bender of reality. She invites all beings to fully embrace and express the
Magick and mystery of the cosmos that we are.
Nonas colors are red for blood, fires of renewal and vibrant sexuality, black for the mysteries of
the night, death and rebirth, gold for the power of the light that is revealed when we embrace the
Her qualities are being able to face struggle, confusion, nature, & humanity as a whole, without
fear or resistance. She will lead one wildly, playfully into the transmutation of pain into power
and fear into freedom. Nona Fender gives permission to express the fullness of being and to
love out loud.
Her yogas are cathartic and rockstar assana, theatrical play, nada/sound vibration, and
Her day of the week is Saturn day. She will usually be found in celebration at parties, festivals,
and gatherings of people on the street, including at protests where she will be having a ball in
support of the evolution of unity consciousness.
Nona will most always be seen with her life partner, EEnor Mus Mezmer, also known as Chrome
Fender. He is a sonic space magician and complements her fire with a cool fluid ease. They
are often accompanied by a drum and bass retinue.
Nonas cohorts are called "Benders", those who transform reality with the powers of creativity,
community, sound and movement.
NONA starts blogging (is that an olympic sport?)
blah blah blah, more soon :)
Aha! Soon has arrived! What the heck all is going on here!? WHO IS Nona Fender? Well to be honest with myself and you.. I wonder that often. HA! Create a NEW personality and have a whole new series of personality crises! Yes, when i was in my 20’s i heard all these voices in my head and wondered which one i should choose!? One day though after much tearing of hair and tearing of eyes i woke up and realized i am ALL THAT.. yes, it was the mid-90’s in the lower east side art world, we all talked like drag queens.. But for real.. i realized i am every woman - and then i began to sing with as much feeling as Whitney Houston on a good day! Decades later, (wow, really!? time does fly when you’re having fun!), soaked in Yoga, expanded and contracted into the awesomeness and ouchiness of life a million times.. im still feelin it. I am a million different people and so are you. So Nona Fender is whoever i feel like daring to be on any given day, but no matter what accents, influences or styles arise, i commit to her bold, audacious, permission giving, fierce loving essence. We are one great big blob of consciousness morphing in and out of form.. Well, if the universe can do that and i am but a microcosm... Yup, then i get to PLAY with being what i have chosen not to be, what i am too shy to be, what my mama told me not to be, what the tyrant in me would be, what the mad woman might be, what the lover of life IS. I create and hold space for all of us to be free as we might dream we could be. Practice makes perfect. I understand yoga to be a practice of unification and discovery, of uniting all aspects of self... Well, good then this too IS yoga, this crazy merging of healing arts, spiritual activism, theater and musical play. Welcome into the expansion, kids! Feel free to decorate your bawdy temple with anything that you are feeling, put your panties on the outside, your heart on your sleeve and lets rock this world into bright, fully accepting, righteous remembrance of the universal YES! that we all are.. together. YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Act like it. LOVE BIG.
We are love activists. We are real people who know that we get to choose how we show up each day. We choose to remember to play and to invite the world in to this play.
In a Benders observation and experience, sickness and suffering of all sorts are first and last about denying, rejecting, ignoring, shaming, or being afraid of any aspect of ourselves or this life. Fullness of being includes seeing, accepting, laughing, crying, singing, & dancing in the fires of a sexy celebration of all of creation!
The idea that we are separate from each other or this earth - this is the cause of suffering and sickness. It's perpetuated with story, justification, distraction, social masks & defensiveness. Benders reveal truth by playing with consciously chosen masks, using our voices, and bodies to express what is feared, denied or hidden. By way of vibration and movement, a Bender finds liberation. Radical self expression brings radical response-ability, which brings us fully to life!
Our days in this incarnation are numbered, the clock is ticking... Be a Bender, welcome yourself - to ALL inclusive living!
Do it now. Before you die...
