i plant the seeds – chapter nine

the artist's way cluster

This is Chapter Nine: Recovering A Sense Of Compassion.
This week, we face the internal blocks to creativity. We will undertake healing the shame of past failures, and gain self-compassion as we learn the tools needed to dismantle emotional blocksn and support renewed risk.

This week we read our Morning Pages. [meeple!]

* Do the Blasting Through Blocks exercises. Don’t forget to make your Deal, sign it, and post it!
* Visualize your goal: name it, describe your ideal scene where you participate in your goal at the height of your powers. Post it in your work area. Read it aloud daily!
* Collect photos to collage this scene.
* Priorities: list creative goals for the year, month, week.
* Name a Creative U-Turn. Name three more. Then name the one that hurts you the most. Forgive yourself for this U-Turn. Consider how you can retrieve the idea, mend it, salvage it.
* Choose an artist’s totem. Give it a place of honour!

Did you do your Morning Pages? Artist’s Date? [and was it FUN?] Did you experience synchronicity this week? Were there other issues to discuss?

Thank you for continuing this journey!

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
