The Vault ~ Week of Feb 26

Over the course of this journey, you'll be claiming, exploring and expressing your creativity. You're going to grow and share and stretch. And we know when that starts happening all those inner voices come out. You know the ones. You're hearing them already. "Who do you think you are?" "You'll never be an artist." "Grow up." "That's not really creative." Ouch!

So, here's what I want you to do. Over the course of our journey together, any time you hear one of those soul-sucking, creativity-thwarting, heart-hurting phrases in your life, your mind or your memories, come and put it here in the vault. Leave it in the comments and let it stay there. Put it in every time it shows up. Leave it anonymously, if that's easier. Put it out of your mind and into the vault. Know that when you put it in the vault you are saying that limiting belief is GARBAGE and you don't need it anymore!

Let all these trouble-making thoughts keep each other company while we get on with loving up our creative selves!

Because of unforeseen life circumstances in the past few weeks, I am now 3 secrets behind. I am feeling completely overwhelmed at the prospect of writing up posts to get caught up. My heart is in it, my head is not. I talk circles around myself ...and it is all negative. I am stuck. :(

I created a little project several years ago that leads one through the process of identifying the negative comments and putting them permanently aside. I would love to share if anyone is interested....

I just purchased this book online and it arrived today. Are you planning on beginning this series again? I feel terrible I missed it!

What do you think? Or, can we just go back to old posts and start on our own?
