ele’ele’eke (black bags)

Leave a comment

ele’ele’eke is a Hawai’ian concept. It consists of ‘black bags’ in your body. These dark regions represent unresolved trauma. It is as if some part of you is reliving past trauma, which is isolated in the far reaches of your mind. The location of the black bag in your body is assumed to be a focus for chronic disease. Aumakua ( au- far travelling; makua – ancestors) are those who protect and guard people, and to protect the ohana (families and villages). Some examples of this are tiki statues. Aumakua can open ele’ele’eke and liberate trapped “younger selves” helping you accept and integrate lost or younger versions of yourself, thus helping to heal psychosomatic disease.

fotoMahaloness I make art with an emphasis on healing, using symbols and colours that tap deep into the inner self, with the aim to amend ties with ancestral lineage that have been disconnected, and offer a catalyst to your brain chemistry that recalls the child within

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
