In yet another attempt to decentralize power, I want to focus today on a form of art that can help focus your thoughts and untangle the emotional traps underlying guilt and shame. These traps just might be keeping you from being able to resolve some unfinished business.

You see, your mind is made up of four layers. Lets look at two of them...

  1. The survival Self
    The job of the the Survival self is to survive, and has many positive attributes. Fo example, it hold on to some beliefs systems so that we don't manifest too quickly. This is great - truly- because if we were to manifest instantly, just think of the mayhem and regret that is averted.
    In this way, it is protecting us from stress, which is preventing the unconscious self from triggering.

    Let's take" love hurts' for example. this might have developed during childhood when your mother punished you and said, "I'm doing this out of love". This survival self inserts the belief- love hurts! and thus a program is created to avoid love situations.
    Yikes! If this sounds familiar, book a session with me and lets take care of this so you can get on with your healthy love life.

    2. Undercurrent Self
    This is the problem-solver part of the brain and sometimes for the spirit soul. It creates situations to fill the need and solves problems.
    sometimes your undercurrent places bets that end up in your favor. For example, if your doctor tells you that you have two months to live and it says, wanna make a bet?!

    Others times it is the part of you that is, for example, seeking revenge, or wants to save others. If you want to know just ask yourself, "What am I getting out of this problem?"

    What does this have to do with Art?

    Well, let's say you have an opportunity to ask yourself "What am I getting out of this problem?"

    Russian psychologist Pavel Piscarev began using this art to get an undercurrent beliefs and programs causing problems that clients were finding difficult to solve. He devised 6 steps.
    1. Decide on a problem, identify points of tension with the problem
    2. Draw in just a few seconds lines on your page
    3. Round the corners with the marker along any intersections and points of direct intersection
    4. Draw lines going across the page - from opposites for example: left top corner to either lower/upper right corners.
    5. Round the corners with the marker again.
    6. Color in various sections

    I really enjoyed watching the Emmanuel School of Fine Arts discuss and complete this project and I invite you to take a look.

In combination with thetahealing, an art therapy session like this can untangle points of contact and tension together. Along the way we can identify those beliefs that no longer serve you and what your higher self is helping you to achieve.
