Alana Mbanza is a writer who has dreamed of sharing the transformative power of words since childhood. In her work, she explores the relationship between psychology, spirituality, relationships, and personal development. She believes that all experiences, even "failures," are meant to help us understand and apply spiritual principles. Even more than a writer, she strives to be an active agent of creation, choosing to see and create life through the lens of love. She recognizes and illuminates our human responsibility to be authentic and express our inner truth.Alana's poetry is a gift from the dream world. Most of her pieces emerged from her when she woke from intense dreams, as though her subconscious could not help but express her emotional and spiritual experiences this way. While she had previously been terrified of the messiness of poetry, these new pieces were unstoppable and necessarily cathartic.She feels it is her daily practice of stillness that allows her to open these new dimensions of self, freeing her enough to write honestly. This authentic expression is a direct reflection of spiritual growth and evolution.In addition to writing articles and poetry, Alana travels the world and explores the coffee shops, bookstores, and cultures of new cities. Wherever she goes, she strives to empower other people to share their personal narratives, and works diligently to create a life of fulfillment. Alana believes that: "Art is when you can look at what you've produced and recognize and appreciate it as a part of your authentic self. Art is the feeling and expression of who you really are."www.AlanaMbanza.com
