It has become clear to me that it is time for me to walk away from my training and focus on healing trauma and turn fully toward this creative process that inspires me so deeply. My work with people will still utilize all of the neuro-somatic based experience and training I have, but our entry into the healing & growth process will be through the door of uncensored creative expression.
My own path of healing was derailed so often by avoiding my greatest creative potential in order to not disturb my sleeping dragons that were chained safely in the catacombs of my unconscious mind. Yet their dungeon was my very own body and so it was impossible for me to heal my own symptoms without poking them inadvertently and waking them up. And so the years of self deconstruction began......and seemed to go on forever. Yet in time my somatic reactivity lessened as my creative doors opened wider and wider. As grateful as I am for the valuable trauma therapy modalities that helped me heal, I know that without kind counsel who was also willing to always allow my current artwork, journaling or creative experiments into the session, it would never have reached the source of what ailed me.
My current mixed-media pieces are a symbolic way of reconstructing myself in exploratory ways. I no longer have to rely on what I have been told is true about me or who I must be. I am free to explore and experiment to see what is true for me. And yes, perhaps the collar bone really is connected to the shin bone in some of us!
Welcome to my Painted Journey. I invite you to join me as I explore this process of intuitive painting, uncensored writing and somatic awareness. This work is calling me out of my Spiritual/Creative Closet. It is a passionate adventure in re-discovering why I am here and I know that by sharing the journey we will grow and learn together! ♡ Jeanette
