Imagine how different your day, or life, might be if everyone you met saw your full potential and inspired and encouraged you to fulfill that potential, instead of judging you or measuring you against some standard they hold in their mind.
Michelangelo has been quoted saying that inside every block of stone or marble dwells a beautiful statue, one only need remove the excess material to reveal the work of art inside. I feel this is true, not only with art but also with people.
I think it is pointless and even harmful to compare one child to another or one adult to another, and yet many of us learned to approach life in this way. Instead of constantly measuring others, I suggest we learn to refocus our mind so we can see the hidden gifts that lie hidden in every person we meet.
In our first six years of life we take on and internalize the beliefs and perceptions from our parents, siblings, and peers. If these beliefs and perceptions are not supportive of whom we are, they can become a cloak of stone, hiding our true being. This stone can weigh us down and encumber us in a manner that makes it difficult for us to learn, grow, and reach our full potential.
Even though many of us acquired inaccurate beliefs about life and ourselves in our formative years, our life now does not have to be a reflection of those beliefs. Instead it can be a celebration of our authentic nature and our potential. To make this a reality, we need to shift our perceptions and transform the responses and habits that flow from those perceptions.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are also wonderful way to activate your conscious mind, identify beliefs and patterns that don’t support your authentic nature, and subsequently release yourself from the stone.
