I realize that I have not posted here in a few days...I have been working on an entry mural of swirls and that has tired me out, so I do my affirmation pages, but I have taken a week off from the swap..Hopefully I will get back to that next week as I only have a week left to do on it before I start to do the envelope...But, I was reading on a friends blog about the positive / negative things that we say to our self..you know the "devil/angel" the "good/bad" ..I use to be one who lived for great stretches of time with that behavior, then I had a coach who took me on a visualization where the 2 of them met and talked and told each other what it was they needed from each other and how they were there to help each other ... I did this affirmation page that night and I feel it almost all the time now...When I do start to tip a little to the other size, I stop..take a deep breath and say, what is it that you are trying to say to me? Because I am only hearing the negative...and then I listen!! It is usually something simple like you are trying to hard..its late go to bed you will do better work tomorrow...and yet all I heard at first was...this is terrible..you call yourself an artist...you must be crazy!! So to all who understand this positive/negative thing...you know we really aren't crazy!! And all we have to do is take a deep breath...let it out...and then listen to the balance of the two.
