NEW! "Catharsis" for your scrapping/journaling needs at Studio Miki- add ons & bundles & limited sales pricing+FWP!~
“Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terror, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them.”
Catharsis. Release, a purging- providing relief from strong or repressed emotions. The process of bringing these angst-filled moments up through our consciousness, and using them as a channel for self-exploration, for growth, for renewal. Often wrenching and overwhelming- but necessary to move from one chapter into the next in our lives. In "Expressions: The Catharsis Collection", the second collection in this exciting new line, I bring you an eclectic collection of pieces with which to document your trials and tribulations in life. I added two tarot cards as inspiration for the trip.
First, I give you "The Moon",which is often symbolic of our shadow self. The shadow self is the part of our unconscious mind that holds our repressed feelings, memories and fears. It is the part of our psyche that we must confront and purge, in order to release the tensions and anxieties and transform ourselves into stronger and more evolved people. The Moon card prompts us to dive deep into our souls, examine them and purify the parts we no longer need to keep as baggage and make room for growth and new beginnings! Use your intuition, your dreams to help you let go of your conscious mental blocks and lead you to higher understanding of your rich inner life.
Next, I give you the "Strength", a card of power, determination and- you guessed it- inner strength! Everything that you need to overcome the obstacles and roadblocks in your life is already inside of you! Strength reminds us to use our inner reserves of strength and confidence to focus on our objectives and the change we want to affect. But part of that strength is also acting from a place of compassion, patience and care: we can act with true strength only when we do so with love and tolerance. In this way, we must transcend our sometimes ferocious emotions- perhaps using meditation or visualization- or any number of actions that soothe and calm our spirit, in order to act with strength, compassion with dignity. In this way, we can use our strength to persevere in our sometimes rough journey, and use the moon to move through our inner selves, and emerge with new purpose and life.
