As a person who lives and breathes art, Flordeliza Pesigan, dubbed as the New Age Babaylan, hopes to be an inspiration for everyone to bring out the best version of themselves.
Her works which have been exhibited extensively around the country have garnered recognition within the art scene, as well as from collectors like Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation (ADMAF), the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. Now, Flordeliza lives her like a gypsy exploring life, while being a facilitator in transformational spaces. Conducting retreats in the Philippines and in Bali, she has helped people of different nationalities, seeking time to connect to nature and to their selves.
She takes this as a humble experience of touching thousands of lives through her passion. “My pride and satisfaction with this is in knowing that what I do, creates a ripple effect to the world,” she says. “If we ask each and every one on this earth what they want, they’ll generally say peace, love, connection, abundance, joy, change and many other things that are uplifting to their life in their perspective of what is good.”
To evolve, heal, transform, and encourage people to explore their own unique gifts; this is the mantra of Flordeliza Pesigan, an artist who has made it her life’s mission to teach others how to find inner peace. She translates her inner universe to music and painting. She is an advocate of the importance of creative energy; how every man, woman, and child on Earth need to be in touch with it to be truly alive.
This year has been a year of integrating her new found path with her art. Flordeliza says: “My journey keeps evolving. There is no destination. Trusting the process and emptying myself so energies can flow through me has become my way of living. I have learned and still am learning to ‘’unlearn’’ layers of conditioning that do not serve me.”
She encourages her fellow Filipinos to let go of the limiting beliefs that obstruct their growth, and allow themselves to evolve, experiment, express, expand and ultimately experience their full potential. In her own words: “Life has a lot to offer, and you have a lot to offer in your life.”
