    up the silks This was also around the time I returned to creativity after a long absence I took an online art journaling class and discovered connections all over the world making art That s when my healing journey began The return to creative practice and fun was set off by taking an experimental drawing class at Brett Whiteley Studio a month or so before relocating I realised very quickly I needed creativity and art in my life It was a part of my life force that I had held myself back from for far too long Can you see what I m getting at yet We all have stories to tell We might not know it at the time but when we have the opportunity to look back not because we want to live in the past but because we want to see how far we ve come we begin to learn that there are lessons to be shared with others from our unique transitions and journeys through life Each day we are making stories lots of little events mundane tasks and experiences If you still don t think your story matters think about all the bloggers you follow authors whose books you always buy and artists whose prints grace your walls and shelves They all have their story and you welcomed them into your life and became part of theirs Each story event and experience contributes to the beautiful and complex fabric of our lives Honour them If you aspire to write or create or do anything new which may seem big and scary do it anyway Don t wait for the perfect time or more experience before you pursue your dream You gain experience by doing You make discoveries by trying Don t be your own roadblock This is the perfect time to start something new to try something you have always wanted to do to transform yourself and maybe hop onto a new path Who knows where it will take you I m willing to find out Stop standing in the queue step out emerge and live your life to the full Heal grow learn do what it takes to set your dreams in motion One big lesson I learned recently was to allow what I want in I set the wheel of manifestation in motion and from that I have started to see the results But you have to invest you have to allow you have to try you have to give in order to receive Investment is not about money Investment in my definition means self trust it means time and it means feeling worthy of taking the time and a willingness to face fears and my Shadow side in order to push my barriers the roadblocks and obstacles I put in my way while also keeping my boundaries protective walls to prevent external factors like what people say from making my choices for me up Don t know where to start Then maybe

    longer I ve always found it difficult to ask for or accept help even when it is offered But this time I had to for my survival I hit my 10 the panic button of overwhelm and defeat I thought I was being swallowed up whole My exterior crumbled as I opened my raw insides to the outside world and sought much needed support from a professional and those closest to me Later I came to understand that I had other traumatic experiences to heal So with fear courage my loved ones and trusted friends alongside me I began the process of healing It led me to consider the biggest lesson I ve learned so far I have the power to get through anything always This is just one piece of my life s puzzle Not many people can say they have had a traumatic experience But I can tell you that I have had three at ages 14 22 and 23 I m 36 now Confronting past trauma amid realizing big dreams is such an overwhelming and conflicting set of circumstances to go through I m an artist and maker and for about 5 months of this year I painted and made nothing I went through the motions in my professional day job I put that brave smile on like a mask I was shocked that my brain could carry this heavy weight for so long untreated I was scared at the thought of the long road to healing that not only was I emotionally blocked I was creatively blocked too I d walk into my studio space look around and walk back out and shut the door It was stifling to not be able to use my creativity when I honestly needed an outlet I was angry that I allowed things to get to me I was angry that I had these horrible experiences But I learned that I had to be gentle on myself I had to stop blaming and shaming myself Enough of that had been done to me I had done nothing wrong I was a kid a young woman I was physically assaulted twice and the other experience was emotional abuse from an ex boyfriend He would belittle shame humiliate manipulate and control I was trapped and not equipped with the wisdom and knowledge of today to know that I didn t have to be there forever I also didn t know how deeply it affected me until I dug deeper This year I have also faced my biggest fears showing up being vulnerable marketing and talking to people at markets showing my art in public scared that no one will like my work and sharing my life and inner thoughts on my blog I did all of this while trying to heal and when I look back I m a little bit amazed at how I got through the year I m a work in progress There is still so much to heal

    represent how hard it can be to get past difficult times in our lives I also think it can teach us that in facing resistance and taking back our power we can let go of fear When we choose to no longer allow the emotions of others to control us we can instead focus on what matters most to us and how hard we fought our fears rather than how easily we let our identities and our daily lives be marred by the actions and words of others Comments are closed Hello I m Sharyn Gutsy Girl Chieftess multi passionate Spirit Junkie teacher and Sister Soul Medicine Sanctuary Circle leader Get to know me on my About page I m so pleased you are here Follow gutsygirlart As seen in Popular Posts Tools Training for Modern Day Heroines 9 Ways to Use Essential Oils Contemplating Fear Adventuring On Anyway What I Make Manifesto Cuff Subscribe to Gutsy News Here Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014

    later I read about the Radical Self Love Party by Earth Events where Rachel MacDonald Gala Darling Julie Parker and Melissa Ambrosini were going to share their stories and advice followed by a dance party with Susana Frioni That night was like a whole box of lit sparklers in the dark I really needed a kickstart some lessons in self love and to dance my heart out That night I opened up to following whatever felt right even if it scared me and even though I worried too much about what was next I asked Rachel to be my coach for a few sessions to help me with blog and business coaching Around the time of the Radical Self Love Party Rachel MacDonald and Tara Bliss released their first collaborative project the e books Spirited and Spirited Companion What a freakin goddess send Wholeheartedly I dove straight in and unearthed the truth of my inner wisdom and actually started to believe that I could step out of that hole I was in and RISE I shared the love of Spirited with friends and mentioned it here on the blog a few times I wrote to Tara to tell her what I thought of Spirited and I was more than a bit chuffed that she used my words in her newsletter This is what I wrote You and Rachel have made something that came at a time when I almost lost faith in myself Thank you Thank you for this gift Like I said before I had fallen out of love with myself and I was seeking tools that would help to awaken my soul reclaim my power and faith This year has been very introspective in many ways a lot of healing and self healing a lot of contemplation doing the work and then piecing it all together A few months ago I wrote about creative fire and that s when things really came together My mind raced with new ideas and a re ignited love for total creative expression emerged I danced my heart out big time at Susana s Love Sex Desire Embodied event in August and I haven t looked back except to remember what a great time I had and how I felt An opportunity came up to work with Susana in August and I figured this was no coincidence I was finally aligning with what the Universe was offering to me Instead of engaging avoidance and procrastination tactics my gut feeling was it s time to do the work and really start to live a fully expressed life I m still working with Susana now and she is helping me awaken from the inside out I finally started meditating too Going within for answers from my subconscious not just clearing the mind and not thinking It can be quite an active process I compliment my regular self Reiki practice with mindfulness and at least 2 half hour meditations a week plus the visualisation and going

    potential and make a decision based on in this instance my online presence art and creativity and just a few paragraphs of the application Maybe it was a bit of a long shot but the attempt matters It matters because there is no doubt I tried no regret no thinking I should ve applied or wondering what the outcome would be in the land of shoulda coulda woulda I did my best and wrote my answers from the heart and had faith that if it was the right venture for me it would work out I spoke to my husband about this and what I said to him was this you will experience failure and rejection and this may occur in greater numbers than success You cannot win every time you cannot get a yes every single time That s unachievable What you can do is keep going keep trying keep applying and if the timing is right it will happen It simply makes way for newer better and bigger ideas that you would never have conceived had you not been knocked back My husband and I had another conversation similar to this a few days later He asked me about something for his own situation the big what if it doesn t work out I said I would still be proud of him because I have seen the hard work he has put in It really is the trying attempting and investing in yourself that matters Moving on a few weeks we spent last weekend in Kingscliff as he raced in Battle on the Border the cycling event he was training hard for He placed 5th in his Grade out of over 90 cyclists I m incredibly proud of him He has worked hard and kept up the pace
