The Artist's Way - Week Five

It's been over a month since I started The Artist's Way. Just to catch up with what's been going on, here's a wrap up:

Week 1 - Recovering a Sense of Safety
Week 2 - Recovering a Sense of Identity
Week 3 - Recovering a Sense of Power
Week 4 - Recovering a Sense of Integrity

I think something spiritual happened last week, that really changed my outlook. I'm not quite sure what it was... maybe I saw that synchronicity is more that just dumb luck.

So I'm at Week 5 - Recovering a Sense of Possibility.

Did I mention that I bought The Artist's Way on Amazon? It arrived in the mail, a few days ago. The book has more exercises and explanations than the workbook. That's always good. I started going online to find explanations... the same time I was telling myself to create more and surf the internet less!

One of the exercises this week was to write down quickly, without a lot of thought, what you wish for. That was fun and full of possibilities. Try it yourself and see what happens. Give yourself 19 lines to fill in, and let yourself go. As Julia Cameron says, "Because wishes are just wishes, they are allowed to be frivolous." My tenth quick wish: "I wish DH could get a job." Then a few minutes later, Mike called and said DH got the job, if he still wanted it. Was this synchronicity? I don't know, but it sure felt like it! Starting next week, we'll have to begin sharing household duties again. But I'm all right with that!

Glad this book is still around. I read it when if first came out. I think I will look it over again.
Thanks for the reminder

Whoa! That is getting very sychronized! I've heard so many times how if you think something it'll come true and obviously it did for you with your DH's job. Maybe you should wish to win the lottery! Or better yet, wish that your friend Sharla wins the lottery! :D Just kidding (sort of)!
