Through thought-provoking graphics, storytelling and quality production, Octopied Mind (OM) is a tool for supporting the journey in freeing the mind from negative thoughts. Our goal is to foster a community of people who feel like they belong and are deeply connected to one another. When you treat yourself to an OM product, you are not just supporting a female owned, ethical, slow-fashion brand, you are supporting yourself. Whether through heartbreak or humour, every design tells a story we all share. These narratives manifest themselves through mind altering illustrations, offering a deeper insight into the real experiences that inspire our work to collectively free the occupied mind.
Mad Girls Club
“She must be on her period.” If a third-eye uterus and some menstruation talk makes you so uncomfortable, then move the heck on. Mad Girls Club is here to remind you of the power you have to exercise boundaries, own your intelligence and take up space in the world even if it makes others internally implode. It took me years to understand the magic of my own beauty, the strength in my softness and the ability to recognize those who are not deserving. To the men who took my no’s as a yes, my resistance as shyness, my curiosity as a door to entry for manipulation, I AM FUCKING MAD. If you’re reading this, take notes. The moon regulates my menstrual cycle, I am a portal from the spirit world bringing new human beings to planet earth, and I can bleed for 5 straight days and still not die. You should be the one who is afraid of me now.
Let Your Mind Grow
Many of us breathe unnaturally shallow. This is because just like our minds, our bodies become weighed down by anxious & negative thoughts. The only escape is through our breath. Being aware of your breathing takes the focus away from thinking. As you're reading this, notice your breath. How the air feels moving in and out of your body. Notice how your belly expands as you inhale and as you exhale, feel the release of tension sitting within you. Feels fucking awesome, doesn't it? Do it again.
How can we live a balanced life if we don’t embrace the dualities life presents? When we resist sadness, failures and what seems to be our darkest moments, we resist means to restore the yin and yang. If all was good in the world, what would we grow from? Frig it. Invite the darkness of the whole sky and be lead by the light of the moon. To feel bad is to feel all of life’s forces living and breathing within you.
