“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
~ C.G. Jung
It is not easy to express all of who we are - especially if aspects of ourselves vary from the status quo. When we express all of who we authentically are, we risk not being liked by friends, family, religion, culture and our society.
A while back, I had a lovely conversation with spiritual life coach, Christina Sharp.
Christina grew up as a "good girl," always trying to do the right thing. Her life journey took her into the Christian church, and into what she calls "Right Thing Syndrome."
Self-Support and Self-Mirroring
In our chat, I shared my reflections on how I have used expressive art as a form "self-mirroring" to support myself on my journey to authentic self-expression.
Believe in Something Bigger
When we do not have human support to express our most authentic selves, we can ask for spiritual support. In my personal art visioning processes, I have seen that we have legions of spiritual support on the "other side." We only need to humble ourselves enough to ask for it!
