Scared Sacred




I'm not gonna lie....these past several weeks I have felt afraid. I've also felt empowered, angry, happy, peaceful and full of love. I remind myself that I can hold more than one thing at a time.

I am aware of is how important it is for me to acknowledge my fear - I paint about it, write about it, scribble or talk it out. And of course this in itself is a process, because my first reaction is to slap Fear in the face and run away screaming! Feeling and acknowledging this is uncomfortable business and I don't like it.

However, unacknowledged or unattended fear disconnects me from my truth and knocks me off balance and I can't function like that for too long. The upside to this is fear ALWAYS gives me a choice to turn my scared into sacred and my fear into faith. Remembering to breathe and to stay present is key.

 I can't imagine where I would be without my community of process artists and fellow creative self-discoverists. Process art provides a way for me to meet myself in it ALL and not feel so alone and helpless in uncertain times.
