52/100 oh well back to the messy paint play today - it’s quick and it relaxes me and doesn’t make my shoulders hurt. I’ll call that a win. #100daysproject #artastherapy #100daysofsensorysoulart #sensorysoulart

The Kiss
“My words are unsure, Like rocks tiptoeing across the river They walk up to the line of what I know, And who I am I hover here and ask myself really deeply, How can I pursue this feeling And still make a whole? To attain my momentum To continue to move forward Without being ruled by a theory Dredged up from history ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With an inside puncture I am held back like floodwaters, The suction and pressure on my skin is enormous Much like the pull to let go and wash away To just be dragged over the lipped edge And down Down Down It is less out of habit And more out of intent ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But rest assured, My strength outweighs the descent I will rise from this Full to the brim with heavy reflection I will rise With pristine clarity And a newly won security” . . . . . . #lovepoems #poems #poets #lovequotes #wordsoflove #wordlove #instagrampoets #instagrampoetry #poetryofinsta #igpoem #igpoet #writtenword #writersofinstagram #writing #writingonlove #poetrycommunity #itsalllove #relatedtolove #loveisloveislove #romanticism #theartoflove #artastherapy #writersoninstagram #poetrycommunity #poetryislove #poetrytoheal #healingwords

‘70s Parisian prairie girl is a style right?
I had a VERY hard time not keeping this one for myself! Such a sweet cover - children’s poetry book from 1949! 🙌🏻 Inside I included 50 pages of antique & vintage book pages as well as as 50 pages of different vintage blank papers.
They didn’t show you, my friend.⁣ They didn’t tell you that things can be bad but that doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you.⁣ ⁣ They didn’t show you that underneath the chaos and storm, there is something precious. Or that the darkness comes with light too.⁣ ⁣ I uploaded my first video last week on how to make art for anxiety, and I am so grateful to have received so much interest and love from you all. ⁣ It was powerful to read from your responses and see that many of you have found different ways to relieve and cope with anxiety. ⁣ ⁣ I was very inspired by this and it just reminded me of how we can use anxiety to better ourselves. ⁣ ⁣ Having anxiety doesn’t mean that we are broken, or there’s something wrong with us. ⁣ ⁣ Anxiety is here to tell us something, to show us something, to prompt us to find ways to take care of ourselves in ways that we might not have even imagined. ⁣ ⁣ We get in tune with ourselves. We find what’s right for us, what soothes us, what makes ourselves the best person, the best sister, the best daughter, co worker, friend. ⁣ ⁣ We learn what we need and we learn to get it. ⁣ ⁣ What has anxiety taught you?

My second finished project for the #memademay !! I was hoping to get some photos this past weekend of it all spread out, but the weather did not cooperate, so this is what it looks like all wrapped up!! Sadly it's too warm now to wear it, but I am so looking forward to rocking it in the fall 😊. . Pattern credit: Water's Edge shawl by @autumnandindigo.

TRAVEL ||⠀💖🇮🇹✈ ⠀ This time last week I was prepping for my trip to Florence, Italy 🇮🇹 It was a surprise Mother's Day gift which I was super grateful for 🙏 but at the same time... I run a business! Nobody pays me but me! I need to work!!😫 These thoughts dashed through my mind, we all need to earn money, right?⠀ ⠀ So that's what I did 🙌 Take the leap of faith, believing in myself & my ability to help women led me to start my own business 💖 I can work from anywhere in the world 🌍 I've given myself that independence. ⠀ ⠀ Whilst in Florence I did some sight seeing, ate amazing food, drank good coffee in the sun ☀️ I also took coaching calls (in the sun☀️), did Facebook lives to promote workshops and sat outside the cathedral (drinking good coffee ☕) planning content & doing some admin! I gave myself this freedom 🙌⠀ ⠀ But I couldn't of done that without working on myself first 🙏 I spent 3 years educating myself, exploring myself and trusting myself to really find out who I was and what I wanted again 💖 Once I learnt to control my anxiety & grew in confidence, I was ready! I CAN HELP YOU DO THE SAME 🙌⠀ ⠀ With online coaching, in person coaching at my studio (available 1 on 1) and my interactive art therapy workshops and now ONLINE workshops... I can help guide you to your purpose, overcome anxiety & achieve your goals 🌹 DM me your situation, I'd LOVE to see how we can work together 💖⠀ ⠀ #coach #coaching #lifecoach #personaldevelopment #creativeliving #createmusecoach #creativecoaching #cardiff #creativecardiff #penarth #whatsoncardiff #cardiffevents #workshop #pontypridd #selfcare #soulcoach #arttherapy #councillor #highestself #workshop #creativeworkshop #artastherapy #personalgrowth #enlightenment #authenticallyyou
If you had to put what's on you mind on paper what shapes, lines, textures and colour would you make to describe them? Go through your senses and then add the data to the page. If you thoughts were suddenly audible how would they sound? Do they flow like curves, and smell like the ocean or are the unfinished mutterings? Are some thoughts taking up more space than others? What other descriptors can you think of to add? #art #arttherapy #mindful #awareness #artist #papercraft #paperlove #collage #abstractart #therapy #thoughts #paper #recovery #selfcare #mind #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #acceptanceandcommitmenttherapy #acceptance #psychology #artastherapy #aboriginalart #australianart #lines #paint #rothko

「藝術的創作是指,這樣的情況下,你可以做甚麼。對於這裡的院友來說,我想藝術要達到的是情緒的紓導,讓他們看見自己在當下能做到甚麼。我的長期計劃是慢慢鋪敍,第一步是表達,即使是黑白也由得他表達;第二步是引導,看見過去生命組起來也是七彩。我相信藝術本身就能改變人。」——治療師Kevin 今期 #就係香港 中的藝術治療專題,讓我們看見,在疾病中受苦的人,如何在藝術中找到另一個世界與尊嚴。 更多詳情和訂閱請前往👉🏻bio link #Art #Artastherapy #藝術治療 #就係香港2019春季號

Ive been away from my brushes all week and decided I just couldnt do another whole day without them, so I painted alittle more on this piece.... Its getting closer to done, slowly but surely..... after not having done any painting the last few days I now realize even more how much it helps me mentally & am a full advocate for #artastherapy even more so now...

#THROWBACK to an article by @kaurlife about my artwork, my inspirations and how it's helps me. . . Thank you to @kaurlife for taking the time and giving me this wonderful opportunity!!. . '....I want my art to spread positivity, happiness, and chardi kala vibes (positive attitude and being in high spirits). . . My work mostly consists of religious pieces, which take positive and uplifting quotes from Guru Granth Sahib Ji. . . Art therapy also plays a huge part in my work, which feature intricate henna and mandala patterns. These patterns themselves are uplifting and therapeutic for those viewing them. . . We all need to take a moment to appreciate the simple things in life and be thankful to the Divine; during good and bad times. Life offers blessings as well as lessons and we must embrace all. I endeavour to touch the souls of many with my pieces which are uniquely and bespokely crafted....' . . .

51/100 I’m a Sagittarius with all the true wanderlust symptoms, thus I’ve moved so much in my life, sometimes out of boredom. Still, I’ve craved putting roots down in a place that feels like home. Not in a way that bows to convention or security so much as simply being able to relax my nervous system into a community and onto a land where I can settle a while. Sitting around a table with loved ones tonight in Boulder made me feel these ‘dropped in’ feelings. Trying to soak that in as best I can. #100daysofrevelation #the100dayproject . . . . . . . #100dayproject #radicaltruthtelling #truthtelling #truth #noshame #beingseen #visible #vulnerability #authentic #revelation #nakedsoul #confessions #humanness #boundlessexpression #unmasked #divinetruth #visiblyvulnerable #hexthepatriarchy #unapologetic #mandala #portal #fluidart #roots #home #artastherapy #artasmedicine #arttherapist #artsorceress
Scintillation by Alena Freeman. 9"x12" acrylics on paper This may morph into something else later. I played with paint, metal foil, inks and glitter- and had no agenda. Anxiety tends to wind my brain tight so I have to remind myself to relax. I often forget how much fun play and nonsense can be. My camera just doesn't capture the shimmer and sparkle, darn it! #alenafreeman #artist #visualart #contemporaryart #acrylicpainting #acrylics #glassbeadgel #glitterart #metalleaf #abstractart #arttherapy #artastherapy #ptsdart #ptsdrecovery #colorfulart
Self-care is such an integral part of emotional, physical and mental well being. As a therapist practicing self-care can help with these and much more. Our jobs can be very emotionally draining and often times we are faced with stories and hardships that can be hard to navigate with our clients. Through self-care we can release and process, what are some ways you practice self-care? #selfcare #arttherapy #arttherapist #creating #processing #yourworthit #therapy #psychology #artastherapy #arttherapylife #mentalwellness #mentalhealthawareness

Original analog collage (and a wall of text 💜) x TL;DR I am learning to manage moral ocd and some days it really sucks. x Today was a difficult mental health day. And I want to write about OCD and how it presents in me. x I am learning to live with moral scrupulosity ocd. It presents with irrational fears (obsessions) around “not being a good person”. And from there I engage in “checking” behaviors (compulsions) to reassure myself. x Most of my checking is either mental rituals or googling. x This checking behavior has never served me, but until recently I had no idea what else I could do. x Three months ago I had a bad enough episode that I sought professional help from someone other than my psychotherapist. I’ve been seeing a CBT therapist since then. x I am incredibly grateful for the privilege of access to mental healthcare. I know this is not the case for TOO many people. x Prior to starting CBT, I found the book “The Untethered Soul” combined with tarot, self-recorded affirmations and brief, grounding meditation effective techniques to combat the compulsions. x The compulsions are the hardest to overcome. Today was one of those days. I wanted to scream and cry (I did do the latter). I wanted reassurance that I was okay and that I was safe. x So I engaged in all the techniques mentioned above. My brain yelled at me that I should google, but that little voice reminded me of all the tools I’d developed. x And here I am tonight. While I’m not dancing in the streets I do know I’m safe. And that feeling came from within, not google. And that feels like a win. x Lots of love, Witches 💜 x x x #analogart #analogcollage #cutandpastecollage #collageartistoninstagram #theuntetheredsoul #analogartists #handcutcollage #paperartist #cptsdrecovery #pureocdrecovery #cptsd #collagecollective #collageoftheday #magazinecollage #restasresistance #artasresistance #gluepaperscissors #collage_art #artastherapy #creativeresistance #surrealart #visualcollective #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #moralscrupulosity #moralocd #pureocd #ocdrecovery #ocdawareness
