About this Illustration
This illustration was inspired by the book, “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron where she talks about the mind being a room where we hold all of our usual ideas about the world and what is possible. She says the room has a door that’s open just a tiny crack and after we do the work of inner recovery, instead of slamming the door shut when a new idea floats by, we have the courage to nudge the door open a little bit further and let it in.
What a great metaphor! I couldn’t help but draw my version of it. I also put fear on the door, although she doesn’t talk about that in this example. I feel like the door is our limiting beliefs and fear that is trying to keep us safe and comfortable because it IS a risk to follow the unknown. It could fail, we could get hurt or disappointed so of course we want to keep that door closed! It makes sense.
That’s where the power of all of this personal development stuff comes in because if you do the work and you have a practice, you see failure as feedback, pain as growth and disappointment as a reminder to give yourself some love. And then you try try try again!
