Then I hope you will find my blog and creative work about personal and global transformation inspiring, informative, and transformational.
I started this as a creative challenge project with Yesenia Soleil, a coach and intuitive who helps people spiritually to find their most authentic and empowered selves. I highly recommend her if you are looking for creative support in your own transformation.
The transformations I am creating in my life are:
- Personal healing from childhood trauma;
- Personal healing from personas and coping mechanisms that became entrenched as an adult trying to cope with unhealed trauma showing up in my life;
- Decolonizing my imagination from forced Imperialist indoctrination in childhood & willing compliance in adulthood;
- Connection to my inner and outer creative powers as tools to navigate the healing of wounds, challenging situations, opportunities for growth, and innovating a new world of equity and peace;
- Global healing from the era of Empire as it dies and another system takes its place.
What I’m trying to transform in this 21 day challenge is my habit of not sharing what I create during my healing journey. I firmly believe that as we each transform and overcome our challenges, weaknesses, and woundings, we transform the planet and its systems.
I have studied a massive amount of “self-help” content for more than 20 years. I started deeply studying transformative works around 2012. In response, I write everyday, I take photographs, I make collages, I create videos. Maybe I slap something up on Instagram or Facebook where only my close friends will give them a like or heart. Then I feel discouraged because most of my tribe “doesn’t support my work.”
Blah. Blah, blah, blah. That’s my victimization talking. That’s where I see my blocks showing up.
I know that I’m not going about things the “right” way. I share things halfhazardly. I don’t really explain what I’m doing or talking about; I often use short descriptions that only mean something to me. I know that most of my friends aren’t interested in what I’m doing, but I don’t try to cultivate a community or audience that IS interested in what I do. In short, I don’t really give myself a chance to develop my work into something shareable, something meaningful, something transformative.
So for the next 21 days, I’m going to give myself that chance. I’m not sure what that’s going to look like, but I’m going to share it here, on Diary of an Art Lover.
I hope you will join me. I hope you will find some tools of transformation that will also improve your life, and in turn, begin deep healing on our planet.
