Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Homework Exercises, Part 2

More homework for this weekend as we approach the end of the third step on our road to recovering our Inner Artist self. Yesterday, we worked through the first ten. Today, spend some time completing, in whatever way you wish, the following:

11. I am afraid that if I start dreaming …
12. I secretly enjoy reading …

13. If I’d had a perfect childhood, I’d have grown up to be …

14. If it didn’t sound so crazy, I’d write or make a …

15. My parents think artists are …

16. My God[dess] thinks artists are …

17. What makes me feel weird about this recovery is …

18. Learning to trust myself is probably …

19. My most cheer-me-up music is …

20. My favorite way to dress is …

Naturally, you know exactly where we’re going with this, right? Contemplate the insights you’re getting from this. Then act on them. This weekend is a perfect time to treat yourself to some of these things that you have loved.

Why not buy yourself the Legos you never had? Maybe you could rent that favorite movie you loved when you were a kid. Treat your inner child artist to something special. Goddess knows s/he has been waiting long enough.

    11. I am afraid that if I start dreaming I will never get anything concrete done. (Actually I am afraid I am already there and I fear being stuck in the imagining phase and not being able to move to the manifesting phase.)

    12. I secretly enjoy reading fiction. (That sounds really broad, but I never read it! Always something about history or art. Or art history.)

    13. If I’d had a perfect childhood, I’d have grown up to be independent.

    14. If it didn’t sound so crazy, I’d make a ton of money. If it didn’t sound so crazy, I’d make big sculptures, things out of metal. If it didn’t sound so crazy, I’d write a how-to workbook to help women to get to know (and I mean that kinda Biblically) their daimones.

    15. My parents think artists are tolerable. (And my mother’s an artist!)

    16. My God [Muse] thinks artists are the most splendiferous, wonderful, amazing, spectacular, beautiful people in the whole of creation, from whose hands and minds pour the most beautiful, enriching, healing, holy, things. And he should know. (So he says.)

    17. What makes me feel weird about this recovery is… actually I don’t feel weird about it. I mean, things are being sorted out and looked at and that’s bringing stuff up and all, but I don’t find it weird. The process is very solid, and is entirely, and obviously, the right direction.

    18. Learning to trust myself is probably something I already know how to do. In a lot of ways, anyway, though not all.

    19. My most cheer-me-up music is The Mostly Mike Monkees Mix CD. Ha! Mmmmm, St. Matthew. Or Weird Al. Though Al’s for dire situations.

    20. My favorite way to dress is colorfully. Though comfortably is very good, too.

    And actually I do have a big box of Legos now that I acquired as an adult a few years back. Several sets, mostly the castle ones. (Though I wish I could buy a pack of just girls, since the male:female ratio that come with the sets is criminally sexist.) It is on my list of artist’s dates, to play with that big box. Tomorrow, then.

    Madeline – I am so glad you are here!

    Yay! Thalia! I love this! I wish we lived nearby; wouldn’t it be fun if we all got together for an afternoon of dressups and playing with Legos!

    And I really, really, really hope you’ll take seriously your idea for a book about helping women connect with their daimones. We need this! – Beth

    Thalia– you go girl!! The book on daimones!! AND the leggos! oh yes,I can see a queen party where we dress up put on our crowns and build whatever we feel like with our toys. Can I bring my Barbie?????

    It’s funny–I have had this urge to make DOLLS. DOLLS are a big theme in my emotional life.I had a huge collection.I loved those dolls. As an only child they were sometimes my best friends.When I got older I asked my Mom (unsentimental Scorpio ) could I have back my boxes of DOLLS.

    WELL! Seems she had SOLD THEM at a yard sale!!!!!

    My history!!!!

    Anyway,I have certain dolls I am looking for at yard sales and on ebay. I miss my dolls.

    How could she??
    Anyway-we can “play” via internet here at Beth’s!
