A few years ago, I spent my afternoon painting with a free event hosted that helped me Nurture yourself through vision. I was unsure what to expect, though one of my goals this year is to create more art – not the kind I usually do like Crochet or Pyrography. I am being drawn to have vibrant colors in my life.

Going into workshops and classes with an open mind can be challenging, I was moved to tears during various moments of the process. When tears come up, it resonates with us.

I think I was expecting to just paint but I allowed myself to stay open through the process. This is no small feat for a perfectionist – which by the way I wrote down to release in the middle of the class.

I am all about letting go of shit that no longer serves me.

What I thought was so profound for me is that I just moved into Reiki Level I&II and then a lovely card reading confirmed my mojo mantra for the year (mind you I painted this before the card reading):

Moving through each section of the class, it was clear that my trauma from childhood and during motherhood still takes hold of my life.

You see, my past is riddled with trauma and it has stunted me. Stunted me in my creativity, stunted me in what I share with people often holding back – holding back my true self.

Well, no more of that.

One of the first human conditions I learned is that I can’t make money as an artist and that I will always need to be considerate and empathetic to others. Well heavens, I am a Libra, I never make a decision that involves thinking about how others are impacted. But I am also an empath and introvert and man I love me some freaking alone time.

BUT

The trauma I experienced supported me being an introvert as it literally helped me hide from people. Thus, never giving the opportunity to truly know what moves me.

During this class, this is what came up:


As I continue my self-healing journey, I will become the catapult to help women heal. My life vision.My lesson, of course, is you never know what will come up and what your path looks like, except for the universe because we are always exactly where we are supposed to be.

So, here’s to healing the shit out of any kind of trauma you and I have ever experienced.
So, let’s pack that shit up and let it go.

And more importantly Nurture yourself through vision that you want to embody in every way and day of your life.
