Iris, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of taking part in a Soul Art Journey. It has been such an enjoyable experience for me.
My intention was to be deserving of nurturing and love. I very rarely take time out just for me – and even coming to visit now, this time is the very first time that I have ever been away from home just for me – it’s always been with the family. Therefore I’ve always been busy running after them in a way that is not just for me or for fun. So for me to actually allow myself the pleasure and indulgence of a few days spent solely for my behalf has really been special.
To spend some time with just walking, talking, cooking, eating and just enjoying each other’s company was amazing. This too was all part of my journey as it made me realise how important it is to take time out for yourself.
The process of setting the intention I found quite confronting, as was the letter writing to myself – but also quite liberating – incredible what your inner self can reveal when you open yourself – but the painting was my favorite part – at first I was hesitant because I felt I couldn’t paint but once I started – what joy – it was like being a child again and creating – I didn’t care who was looking or around – a big thing for me as I do tend to worry what others think – but I felt free and very focused.
I have NEVER spent so many hours just creating. It was fantastic- thank you, thank you, thank you so much.
I go home now empowered, regenerated and feeling positive – ready to start nurturing and loving myself – and ready to grow.
