HypnoEars likes to recognize and get to know our fans. Today we are featuring a woman who has been rocking with HypnoEars from the very beginning, Alyscia Cunningham.
How did you first find out about HypnoEars?
My friend Immani Hood shared a picture on her Facebook page and I became a fan. Love at first sight.
How do you incorporate HypnoEars into your everyday life?
I wear my HypnoEars pretty much every day. They are my absolute favorite. I must get more colors to compliment my outfits. It gets attention everywhere I go. People always notice it.
Who is Alyscia Cunningham? Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a(n) creator, artist, photographer, writer (new love rediscovered), lover, mother, wife, daughter, granddaughter, aunty, sister, niece, cousin and friend. Also a gardener, tree hugger, nature lover, messenger, determined soul, cool as ever, spontaneous, intuitive and conscious mined individual. I have no walls because I live in no boxes and I’m constantly growing.
Give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:
Feminine Transitions Is a photography book that promotes and celebrates the natural beauty of girls and women. It includes an unaltered portraits series of females faces ages 7 weeks to 103.
Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
I’ve noticed that women, particularly women of color, between the ages of 30-70 tend to appreciate it a bit more. Feminine Transitions is for anyone that believes in the reality of self-acceptance; anyone that feels we need to create positive social change and for anyone that wants to be reminded that they are beautiful just they are.
How did you come up with the title of your book ?
It came to me in a dream.
What would you say is your biggest accomplishment you have achieved so far?
Being a dynamic mother to 3 genuine human beings and leading by example.
Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book
The little girls loved to see their pictures afterwards. The older women did not and instead pointed out their “flaws”. I thought to myself (and said it out loud at a certain point) if only we can get back to the mindset of little girls, before we mentally corrupted and bombarded with imagery that points out our imperfections as flaws. I call that brain rape. We must understand that this is also self-inflicted.
Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?
I draw portraits with charcoal and pencil.
How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
What can we expect from you in the future?
More books, photography and looking towards shooting film/movies.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Support, support, support. I always say if you like it buy it. That goes for any artist/business owner. Supporting what we do pushes us to create more of it.
Is there anything else you’d like to say?
I cannot stress enough on the importance of self-love starting at home. Please tell your daughters and sons (they need to know too) that they are gorgeous in their own skin. Don’t let society, their classrooms and the media decide it for them. Once they are confident in who they are, nothing can stop them. Instill this in your children.
Alyscia and I have never officially met in person, but I love and appreciate her art. She is a woman who is not afraid to fully embrace and love every aspect of herself and others! Alyscia inspires me to continue on my own personal journey of fully embracing me……flaws and all!
I hope that you enjoyed this feature. 🙂
