To my readers… sorry for the gap in posts. Personal issues needed to be dealt with.
This week in the Artist’s way is dedicated to recovering a sense of power. Through understanding Anger, shame, and fear we are able to guide our Artist’s to things that are important to our growth.
“Anger is meant to be listened to. Anger is a voice, a shout, a plea, a demand. Anger is meant to be respected. Why? because anger is a map. Anger shows us what our boundaries are. Anger shows us where we want to go. it lets us see where we’ve been and lets us know when, we haven’t liked it. Anger points the way, not just the finger. In the recovery of a blocked artist, anger is a sign of Health” ~ Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way, pg 73.
Anger is something that I personally have a difficult time with. I don’t like anger, because as a young child I was exposed to its raw extreme: rage. I vowed as a child to never be angry, to never turn into those who raged on around me. This chapter, this week in the way is bound to stir lose some of those things that I try not to think about.
So let’s raise a glass and share a toast. To going to those deep, dark, creepy places and rescuing the inner artist child! And to those moments of synchronicity that, if realized and accepted as such, allow us to continuing on our wandering path!
Ciao my loves,
