The beautiful thing about being human is that we have so many ways of expressing ourselves and getting in touch with our inner wisdom. We really do have all the answers we need inside us however, most of us have not been trained to go looking for what lies within, leaving us to go without.
Back in 2007 I worked with an Art Therapist and the attached pictures drawn with my left hand (non dominant) revealed how I was feeling and what I really wanted in my life. It was then up to me to remove any limiting beliefs which would prevent me from achieving my dream life.
Only the other day a friend of a friend said to me, “Oh! Wow! You are living your dream life.” It was a wonderful feeling and I know I still have so much further to travel, which is even more exciting.
As part of Inner Child Therapy I now incorporate drawings to get in touch with our inner wisdom. We learn to draw before we learn to write, it is innate to us.
With no idea which crayon my non dominant hand would pick it simply choose and started to draw my emotions. I could indeed identify with the pain of feeling trapped. The sadness was so deep. My heart was locked up to keep it safe from any possible hurt. I was drifting through life without a ruder.
Once they were revealed it was time to acknowledge them, release them and start the healing process. Breaking through the limiting Beliefs took awhile as there were secondary gains to be made by keeping me stuck in a rut, nibbling away at my self-esteem and self-confidence. Smothering my emotions in alcohol, smoking. Feeling anxious, fearful of the future. My energy being sapped away with little or no motivation, life was flat and I called it “FINE” Fearful, Insecure, Neurotic, Empty. I can laugh at myself now yet it wasn’t funny at the time. Life is just amazing when we get out of our own way. Peace Within
