Talking about goals, I’ve heard it all before in the art studio and during therapy… “I can’t” “I’m not good” Not only from my clients but my inner voice as well. For example, if I’m worried about how my art is going to look, the crappier it turns out (my inner voice uses a more colorful language, our inner critic is ruthless!). I had to learn to flow without judgment and shush my inner critic. In turn I learned that process can help you connect with SPIRIT, Higher-Self or the “real you”. I share that process to help my artists get into the groove because in art therapy, it’s all about the creative process. You see, we are meant to self-express; we can pour out our inner world with a brush! The creative process can be fun, even enlightening, as we connect deep within ourselves and gain new insights. The product’s aesthetic is the least important when it tells a story, when the art is a window to your soul. Anyways, to flow in art as well as in life, you really need to work with your inner voice.
