“I feel stuck going back and forth on this decision,” she said. “I feel like it has power over me!” I get what she’s telling me, not just from a professional standpoint, but from a personal one too.
Some decisions are easy to make, like taking a sip of spoiled milk and knowing in a split second…No! Yuck!
Then, there are the hard decisions; you know what I’m talking about. The ones that come packed with emotion and seem to go like this: “I know I should____, but I feel___. I think, I feel, I know, I feel!”
Ahah – stop the madness!
Because I have a tendency to see emotional concepts in shape, diagram and image and because words occasionally lose their meaning for me, I’ve learned, that if you can put your emotions into a form you can get a new perspective on the issue that’s troubling you.
Because we all, and I’m including myself, get caught in this kind of drama, I created a tool to help recognize the emotions that seem hidden from awareness. I’m talking about the the feelings that can lock us in that back and forth situation of “I think – I feel,” drama.
In this class, Giving Form to Feelings with Paint:
- You’ll focus on one decision you want to make.
- I’ll take you through a short set of questions that you’ll answer for yourself.
- Each answer will help build your final emotional form.
- Charlotte will guide you in adding color to your emotional form.
This class is not psychotherapy. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to see what you feel.
