The other day while receiving a short therapy I began laughing, almost hysterically, because the image that came into my mind as I was focusing on letting go of what was making me anxious was Austin Powers...in one of the movies there is a part where he is in a tiny cart between 2 walls that are very close together. He continuously puts it in drive and reverse, banging into the wall in the front and the back. This is precisely how I imagined my Inner Landscape at that moment, strong walls creating a very reduced space and not allowing me to blossom, limiting my potential. I understood immediately the message...if I want true transformation, I have to first see my walls clearly and then begin to push them outward or break them wide open with a metaphorical sledge hammer.
That same night I went home and drew my interior walls as depicted here. Admittedly, drawing is not my forte but permitting the creative expression to flow freely aided me in defining the walls I am working with and seeing that I have burst through at least the first tiny box I had been living within. I also observed that I have an abundance of truth, freedom and peace within. They had simply been blocked out by the layers of emotions, conditioning and unconscious beliefs. The truth of the matter is these are the emotions that are most abundant and natural within me (and all beings), I just have to remove the layers of bland stone and mud for the gemstones to be revealed and shine out through my eyes and smile.
Find a quiet moment and sit down with a blank piece of paper and colored pencils or crayons with the intention of reflecting your Internal Landscape on paper and LET IT FLOW!
