Who I Am – Why I’m Here – Part 2.

July 8, 2015

Sometime around then along with 4 or 5 other ladies, I attended a workshop called, The Artist’s Way. We were using Julia Cameron’s book by the same name.

The Artists Way Book by Julia Cameron

My purpose in going was to unlock the block I was and had been dealing with for years. To start painting again, not just hide, going in circles, accomplishing nothing. Spiralling into self-hate and depression.

To digress a little…

When I was a whole lot younger, I used to do what I called ‘Automatic Writing’. That meant I’d just start writing down whatever words I saw in my head. Not trying to figure out why I needed to write them down or where the thoughts came from. Just write.
My explanation then and now was that the words were coming from somewhere, someone who wanted, needed a voice. I became their channel.

The Artist Way workshop brought all this back and some. Not only showing me how to love myself but to write daily, expressing my feelings in multiple pages and at the end, Affirmations.

Life was good.
