Reclaiming the power – 30 days challenge D#28

Last days of the challenge … I feel like talking much psychology that painting!

Looking to become a full-time artist, I discovered little by little that only creativity does not allow advance. We must also enable progress, to start up the engine.

And it’s not easy at all. Our comfort is nice. It is also limiting. Add to it a little strong voice, and you get a wonderful mix causing a freeze frame 🙂

When we reach beyond these resistances (by binding very small goal, like writing one line, put a color, see a single brush stroke, …) we understand better and better the person we are. A person full of color gradients.

For example, I recently noticed in my daily life, I did it at 80% of my time, by reflex. Laugh like the others even if it’s not funny, follow a group then I want to stay put. Forcing me to talk to someone. Forcing me to be pretty, when that day I did not feel like it.

When these reflex times appear, locate, it is already a great victory!

And then I found myself succeed to say no. And I say no more. Not their reflexes. I choose. I took control.

Reflexes in the end what is it? These are just what we were and what we have learned in the past. Packaging that has been applied so often, our bodies, our brains act without relying on our awareness (like driving).

Regain power, is this: making choices, reactivate our consciousness.

It’s not huge, and just as you have to experience, this phrase appears often in our ears and our eyes (it is always found in the thoughts of social networks.) It took time for me understand its meaning and know how.

Regain his power is to act without reflex and in full consciousness.

Is stay silent when I have nothing to say though is expected of me as I speak. Rather, it is to laugh when everything has to be serious. It’s talking all parties with strangers while I’m supposed to be shy. It is slow so we would want me to be as quick and efficient as yesterday.

Step by step, I resumed my power.
