Inner Child Artist: WIP!

Are you happy? Were you happy as a child? Do you know how to be truly happy? 🥰

Emotions are intrinsic, and must be created from within. Happiness is something you become. It can’t be found in other people, in relationships, in travel, in work, or in luxury belongings…

Happiness is something that you must choose to be, no matter what the circumstances entail. It’s a feeling of peace and harmony that you mindfully cultivate inside of you, and can tap into at any time.

Me, as a child.

I have always had a hard time expressing emotions openly, without feeling guilty for them, or feeling that something is wrong with me for having emotions in the first place.

I haven’t always been a happy person. I’ve spent many years of my life depressed. I have heard that I am way too sensitive more times than I can count.

I have heard it said often, “If only I had understood how to handle my emotions as a child!”

Just because you are grown, it doesn’t mean it’s too late! Your inner child lives inside of you. It is the child that you were at one time, but also the child that you will never forget how to be. That child never left. That child still lives there, within you. And that child needs you to reconcile the past so that you can be a happy adult. ♥️

As an adult, I have learned how to transform my angry/sad/etc, emotions by expressing them in an artistic way, and I can tell you that I am much happier because of it.

Art allows me a way to express without overwhelming anyone else with my problems. So, rather than dropping all my problems on one of my friends, like people often do, I drop them on a piece of paper.

Art, literally, saves me, time and time again! It makes me happy to engage in the creative process! And I have to say, my inner child can’t get enough of it! ♥️

I have been writing the guidebook for Inner Child Artist Oracle, and I wanted to give you a sneak peak of how I am doing it! It’s big and…

Messy!!! My inner child’s art process is so messy. It has lots of scribbling and mistakes, but that’s okay because I’m not about to ridicule my inner child, when I can see the creative beauty flowing from her so naturally. In my opinion, the nightly art room messes that adult me has to clean up constantly, are worth it because my inner child is having fun and letting negative shit go! I find my child to be very beautiful. But I didn’t always…

You can watch my process for creating the guidebook and get a glimpse of the cards by going here.

Talk soon!

I strongly believe in the power of art and the Tarot for emotional healing and wellness, and it is my ultimate passion, as an artist, to teach others how to use these resources in this way. I create to connect. I connect to myself through artistic expression and I connect to others through hearing their stories and sharing my vision. Art has been my healing modality, and also the thing that brings me closer to the essence of who I am. I also love card decks, both tarot and oracle, and I have a huge collection! They speak seductively to the artist in me, and I'm fascinated by the intersection of art, spirituality, and psychology that exists within them.
