I recently had an incredible chat with Larissa Russell of Creative U, and I'm eager to share the gems from our conversation with you. Larissa, in her delightful way, brought out my story of living my best life through new adventures and embracing the healing power of creativity.


Enjoy our conversation here 👇





For those of you who might not know me, I'm a teacher – not the traditional kind standing at the front of a class, but one who believes in teaching through conversations, even in unconventional spaces like live YouTube sessions. It's something I've been passionate about since childhood when I would line up my dolls and teddies, unknowingly honing my love for connecting and sharing stories.


My journey as a teacher has evolved into something deeply personal – a mission to talk to women, especially, about what lights them up. I encourage them to pursue what they love, challenging societal norms , such as “we can't earn a living doing what brings us joy.”


These are the stories we tell ourselves, and it's time to rewrite them.


In our conversation, Larissa and I delved into the profound connection between creativity and healing. I shared my experience with intentional creativity, specifically Cosmic Smash Booking, as a transformative tool. Creativity, I believe, allows us to unpack, explore, and heal with childlike curiosity, making the process fun and playful.


One significant aspect we explored was the idea of shadow work. This deep dive into the uncomfortable and sometimes murky parts of ourselves can be daunting, but it's where the real treasures lie. I shared a personal exercise inspired by my own healing journey – an exploration of the bottom of the pond, where the sludge and slime hold the nutrients we need for growth.


As I embark on a new chapter, selling my home to embark on a nomadic business road trip, it's a testament to the transformative power of healing and creativity. Leaving the safety of a known container, be it a marriage or a physical space, can feel a messy but necessary process. It's about shedding old stories and embracing the unknown with open arms.


If you've ever felt the call to infuse your healing journey with creativity, or if you're curious about the transformative power of shadow work, you can join the Loving Healing Creating 2.0 Summit here to access my creative session.


Join me in the mud, where healing becomes an adventure, and let's discover the joy in the process together.

I invite you to dive deeper into your own experiences and perspectives in the context of the presentation's themes.


These prompts aim to encourage self-reflection; you may choose to work in a journal or explore the themes creatively as I demonstrated.


Reflect on Your Deepest Wounds

Take a moment to identify and explore the experiences in your life that you may consider your deepest wounds. How have these experiences shaped you? Can you envision the potential for healing and growth within them?


Reframing Breakdowns

Explore your thoughts around a time when you faced a significant challenge or breakdown in your life. How did you perceive it initially, and how might reframing it as a breakthrough change your perspective? What lessons or strengths emerged from that experience?


Exploring the Mud at the Bottom of Your Pond

Imagine the bottom of your metaphorical pond, representing your fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs. What beliefs or thoughts are residing there? How might acknowledging and embracing these muddy aspects lead to personal growth and transformation?


Lotus Affirmations

Take a creative approach by drawing a lotus flower and writing affirmations on its petals. What positive statements or beliefs do you want to cultivate in your life? How can these affirmations contribute to your personal development and overall well-being?


Clarify your connections

What specific insights or gifts from this presentation could you incorporate into your life for personal growth? Reflect on your connections with those who you consider to be “teachers” or mentors in your life. Whose message resonates with you the most, and why?

Let’s unravel the enchanting Garden Party together and dive into the insights and magic shared during this soulful journey.


The Magic of Garden Party


I'm Celia Barsby, the author and creator of the Garden Party, a story that echoes the profound truth: "Your deepest wound holds your greatest medicine."


Join me as we unravel the transformative journey of self-discovery that awaits each of us within the Garden Party.


Magical Key 4: Find Your Magic Within


At the heart of the Garden Party lies Magical Key 4: Find your Magic Within.


In this key, I encourage you to explore your unique gifts and talents, the ones so innate to us that we often overlook their significance. Your authentic, rebellious, and quirky self possesses the power to bring invaluable wisdom to the world. The challenge lies in recognizing and embracing these gifts, the treasures that make each of us extraordinary.


Shadow Work and Tough Times


In the midst of the festive season, I shed light on the importance of addressing shadows and navigating tough times. The holiday season, as recorded during the solstice, can be challenging for many, serving as a reminder that growth often emerges from shadows. Embracing these darker moments becomes a catalyst for profound transformation, a theme resonating deeply with the essence of the Garden Party.


Through the Rickety Gate: A Guided Visualization


One of the highlights of the presentation is a magical journey titled "Through the Rickety Gate."


As we follow my soothing guidance, we find ourselves walking through a gateway into our own soul garden. The visualization encourages us to explore this mystical space, filled with vibrant flowers, delightful sounds, and unexpected wonders. A soul guide appears, offering nourishment and gifts, unveiling the diverse corners of our unique soul garden.

 

Connecting with Garden Party


The presentation concludes with a call to connect with me, sharing your experiences, thoughts, and the gifts received during the guided meditation.


For those intrigued by the prospect of ReAwakening to their Soul's Purpose, I invite you to accept a free gift – a downloadable workbook that marks the beginning of your transformative journey.



As we conclude this journey through "Free to Me – Reawakening to My Soul's Purpose," let's embrace the wisdom of the Garden Party.


It urges us not to be afraid of doing things differently and to lean into our authentic selves.


The message is clear – by exploring our unique gifts, embracing shadows, and embarking on a journey through our soul garden, we can unlock the magic within us and share our medicine with the world.
