Today we’d like to introduce you to David Lesinski.
Thanks for sharing your story with us David. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
When I was 25 years old, I’d been going through an emotionally fatiguing few months. In fact, I was perceiving the stress of life to be so intense that I was having at least one panic attack a month.
The most significant attack happened as I was walking to work one day. Everything seemed fine until the “black cloud” happened. You see, up until then I thought cartoons weren’t real. However, you remember that black rain cloud that would come flying into the scene and start raining on one of the characters? That happened!
What felt like a black cloud of rain began hovering over me, pouring raindrops of fear, worry, and anxiety onto my head. I actually dropped to my knees for about 15 seconds before the cloud hovered out of the scene and I was able to get up and muster the energy to keep moving forward.
This level of worry and fear continued on for months until I had enough. I made two choices to get better.
First, I walked into my doctor’s office and told them, and I quote, “I’ll take any pill. I don’t want to feel this way anymore. I don’t care about side effects. Just make me feel better.”
Second, I walked into my first yoga class. And after fumbling through the postures for 55 minutes I was guided to lay down in “Shavasana” which is the final 5-minute resting posture. This is when “it” happened. As I closed my eyes I felt my body tingling. Then I lifted off the yoga mat and was floating.
Now, was my body actually lifting off the mat? I’ll let you decide for yourself. Either way, in that moment, I discovered the power of holistic healing. That little slice of beauty that happened as I was laying on that mat was enough to open my eyes to another way.
Ever since I’ve been on a quest for the best and most efficient forms of self-healing or as I’d like to say, self-evolution.
The short version of the next 14 years included becoming a yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer, Ayurvedic practitioner, meditation teacher as well as spending time studying shamanism, reiki and many other forms of holistic healing.
I immediately replaced medication with meditation.
As you can see, I believe in learning through experience. I’ve always said, “Watch it, discuss it, read it and learn. But most importantly, feel.”
Based on my spiritual journey and experiences, I’ve put together a powerful system for self-healing and evolution. My passion is supporting people in accessing the positive-power, love and bliss they carry within. I love assisting people in letting go of emotional weight that is simply not needed anymore.
You want to know what I’m about? Here’s what I believe…
• I believe everyone has the ability to efficiently evolve to their human potential. Which in turn increases their capacity to love, be happy and live their “truth”.
• I believe the positive changes begin happening as soon as one commits to this evolution.
• I believe that evolving is our right as humans and that the more we evolve the greater positive impact we have on the world and everyone in it.
I’ve been lucky enough to impact this world as a special education teacher, Ayurvedic Wellness Coach, meditation teacher and more. But now, I’m excited to say that I’ve successfully launched Paintings for the Soul and am enjoying impacting people through my paintings and poetry.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I’m an artist who creates paintings and poetry for the soul. I meditate on the deeper soul-centered aspect of people and allow the color, shapes and designs to come through me onto the canvas.
When finished, I meditate with the painting and a powerful poem flows onto the paper. The poem and painting work together to create an uplifting feeling and dare I say a healing. People are touted by what I’m doing and there are many incredible stories about why the people are drawn to my work. It is not uncommon to have many people approaching me in tears at my shows…touched by the painting and words of the accompanying poem. It has been special…and most surprising to many is that I have only been painting and writing poetry for a year. This all started pouring out of me, without any training August of 2016.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing. No regrets. Any challenges have helped me get to this very special place. 🙂
1. Believe in yourself.
2. Follow your dreams-be willing to do what it takes to keep your dream alive.
3. Rely on friends for help and support. You don’t need to do it all by yourself.
4. Look at the bigger picture–who are you trying to help? How is what you’re up to going to make the world a better place?
5. Be in gratitude…always
6. Persevere…work your butt off.
