Last weekend I went to a Grief Recovery workshop. The workshop was experiential, so I was expecting to work on some of my grief issues, but was not really ready for the intensity of my grief. I have been in a funk for most of the last week. Last night I went downstairs to do an art journal page that had been forming in my head all day. The image was of a bird in a cage and was titled: I FEEL STUCK!
The finished page turned out much differently than I had planned. Through the process of creating the page, I found the bird outside the cage and a much more hopeful message. The creative process is an amazing thing. If we can give ourselves over to the process, it will work it’s transformative magic on us. If we can let it happen, it will bring us healing and help us to move toward a place of wholeness. Feeling much better now - out of the cage.
