Understanding Your Unconscious Mind - Spontaneous creativity is something that we have not thought of before. Poetry, drawing, painting, journaling from the body, mandalas, dream work, and speaking spontaneously reveals the patterns, symbols and metaphors of our unconscious mind.
Self-Expression and Self-Therapy - At the root of all of our problems are buried emotions and beliefs that have not been processed and understood in the light of our kind adult understanding. Private creative journal work provides a compassionate container for safe self-expression of our deeper thoughts and feelings.
Emotional Support - To be creative our emotions need to flow. If you would like to heal and mature your emotional world creatively, I invite you to connect with me through my writing on this blog, my expressive art e-courses, or personally if you would like support in understanding the patterns and meanings of your creative work.
Counselling, Coaching, Mentoring - Expressive Art Inspirations is cited as one of the Top 100 Counseling Resources on the Web. My counselling, creativity coaching and mentoring work is available online by phone and Skype worldwide. Or, if you would like to explore more self-directed therapy and creative self-expression, please visit me on my Expressive Art Workshops website.
In my quest to understand and heal my own emotional and psychological pain, I have done a great deal of personal study in the area of creativity and transpersonal psychology. I share my discoveries and studies with you here. May your creative spirit and your emotional life find the inspiration you need in these writings. ~ Shelley Klammer
