"go blonde, eat cereal" -- book release

by Rachel Lynch


The print version of my book, "go blonde, eat cereal" is finally here. It will be available for sale Feb 10th, the same day as the release party with Nakid Magazine

The book is huge! With lots of photos, but mostly a beautifully little diary that I started keeping when I first moved down to Soho in March. I'm excited to share all my stories with you. There's something so fantastic about holding a tangible book in your hands, it makes it all so terribly personal and real. 

I am so thankful to all of you - who inspire me to keep sharing my life and personal growth. I get the most amazing messages on facebook and instagram almost daily. You all keep me going - you all make me the inspired artist that I am. 

Excited for all the energy that we share on this journey, there is nothing more special in this world.

i'll see you in my dreams

by Rachel Lynch


Lao Tzu once said, "I went to sleep and dreamt I was a butterfly, and then I awoke, and now I don't know. Was I a man dreaming I was a butterfly? Or am I a butterfly, dreaming that I am a man." 

Mozart would have dreams of his symphonys that were so vivid, he had to wake to write them down. It was almost as if something beyond Mozart's consciousness desired them to be written. 

And the same is true for those of us that desire to live in spirit, we are so connected to our calling that our art presents itself to us before it is created. 

But here's the catch, we must be willing to listen.

if you're feeling sinister

by Rachel Lynch


I'll see you in my dreams. Vanilla skies on a winter night, matching sapphire eyes meet in the astral plane. 

Setting my intention for a revealing night's journey- to make known the things that are not known to me now, receiving messages from the other side. 

Clairaudience, a spiritual gift. Knowing what to say and how to say it. Sensitivity to light and sound, feeling so separate from the body. 

Everyone you meet is part of your expansion - when you stop fulfilling that purpose for each other, the universe itself will separate you. 

I recognized you from my soul group, I knew we would incarnate together. You also know my twin flame, a soul up in the stars for now. 

We came into this world together, I have known you many times before and will know you many times more. The souls that are willing to teach you lessons make the greatest sacrifice, a reflection of the highest love. 

I like the way you look at me, I like the time we spend. Thank you for a cosmic sleep, a 5d dream.

thailand & cambodia

by Rachel Lynch


This holiday, I took off with my love to see both Thailand and Cambodia. We flew into Bangkok, then down to Phuket. From Phuket, we took a boat to an island called Yao Noi. From there, we flew to Cambodia for one night, then flew back to Bangkok for the remaining days of our trip. 

It was a whirlwind, and I saw too much to remember it all. What I do remember are the small moments. I remember on Yao Noi, when I saw a huge spiderweb between two trees and the sun illuminating it. I remember putting my nose in a pink flower and how the sun warmed my back. I remember the Monarch butterfly that followed me to lunch after I had prayed.

There's something about nature that makes me return to God. I cease to see myself as separate from the rest of the universe, maybe I lose my ego a bit. I had these refreshing cries, terrible nightmares, and thought about how much I loved my Mother. I don't know why being in nature was so emotional for me this time around, but I'm glad for it. I feel so connected now. 
 

God will always bring us back to him no matter where we are, because we are Him.

we're just friends

by Rachel Lynch


You can come by anytime you like. I have to feel to make good art. But sometimes, I don't want to. I wish I was better at faking it. Slept so long with my jet-lagged heart, making time for you in between all the flights. Why don't you love me like you did back then.

There's whiskey on the breath of a singer you adore, he gets all his words from the books you've recommended. Sleeping next to you, and I'm in your story. I know I'm big enough for two.

when you're away from me

by Rachel Lynch


She came to the Caribbean to make art and write love stories. If you left me here with my novels and paintbrushes, I doubt I would need people. 

Surrounded by other artists forced her to grow - an expansion that could not be achieved through isolation. To make good art, you must be incessantly learning - taking in good books, movies, songs, history and the environment surrounding you. You must have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. 

Her art reflected all she was consuming, bringing the world to life through her images.

came to st. lucia

On my second trip with Supercharge Agency, we flew down to St. Lucia for a week. I've always found the Caribbean inspiring - a place to create art. It's not that I don't see it as a place to have a drink and a swim (I did plenty of that also), but I can't help but feel inspired. A lot of famous artists spent time working in the Caribbean, including Hemingway and Ian Fleming. 

My bedroom at Capella was just divine. Three of us slept in a huge penthouse at highest point of the hotel. My room was on the top floor, I felt like I was climbing in a treehouse every time I went up. The balcony view was incredible, I'd open the windows every morning and listen to some of my favorite spiritual teachers. I could see the entire Marigot Bay and watch the boats coming in and out of the harbor. 

Each bed had an incredible white canopy, and I felt like a princess sleeping inside a tropical cocoon. Our group spent a lot of nights inside, cooking in the gorgeous huge kitchens each of our rooms had. We'd order chocolate and wine, and stay up just staring at the stars from our balconies. 

It was a lot of late nights and early mornings, a lot of time spent in water. I went for a run everyday, and almost finished reading a book on the universe. There's something magical about learning about the natural world while being surrounded by it. 

Thank you Capella for a gorgeous and inspiring stay - and all the rainbows.

24hrs in LA

by Rachel Lynch


Most people don't go after what they want. It's taken a long time to realize that the only thing holding me back is me. When you get to a place where you know what you want - then you know what to do when you wake up. You have a purpose. 

I don't sleep as much these days, but I don't mind. I'm too excited for each new morning. I know what I have to do to create the life I want.
