Spiritual artist Aida Murad joins us in this inspiring episode to discuss how she is using emotionally evocative art for healing, transformation, and reminding people of the innate magic in life.
After overcoming significant health challenges that disrupted her former career as an economist and strategist, Aida began intuitively channeling her journey through mesmerizing abstract finger and body paintings. She explains how she infuses her artwork with energy through Reiki and collaborates with clients in customized painting sessions designed to help them process emotions and shift mindsets.
We explore how Aida had to rebuild limiting narratives around being a successful artist and learn to balance structure with play, as well as receive abundance, through her soulful creative work. She shares teachings and books, like Untethered Soul, that provided her the courage to take life less seriously and live more freely.
