In order to become the most powerful creative force you can be in the world, you will need to know who you truly are. What does this mean? It means you will need to look into yourself, at the deepest levels, to SEE what events, forces, relationships and beliefs in every chapter of your life either contributed to your authenticity as a person or detracted from it.
Being the person you were meant to be from all time—your authentic self—is the strongest foundation from which to build any creative work. That is the case because only this authentic self can precisely choose which creative work to focus energy on. Only this authentic self can summon the creative power to communicate heartfelt ideas and feelings and have them be received at the deepest levels by other people. Only a real, authentic self can create transformational work that endures over time because it reflects the ultimate creation—the human soul.
To become the person you were meant to be from all time requires some creative work, too. You need to dispense with denial and explore the early chapters of your life story, shedding the patterns of emotion, thought and behavior that are false fronts—transplants from other powerful (often less than positive) people in your life. You need to put down the shields you have been deploying to defend against less-than-comforting, or even truly traumatic, events you survived and claim the real person who lived through them. How else could your creative work be infused with humanity, when humanity is all about feeling and foibles and suffering and surviving?
That’s why Pain-2-Power is a pathway of healing and empowerment I created, in part, for artists, inventors and entrepreneurs to become the most creative forces they can be in our world. As Carl Jung put it:
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
When you are ready to take this journey, I am ready (and will feel privileged) to take it with you.
