In other news, I went to an event yesterday for a charity my friend feels passionate about - and it was great. Once you paid to get in, you could sign up for all these healing services like massage, hypnosis therapy, hypnosis therapy with art, acupressure, etc. It was really interesting and I felt extremely relaxed afterwards.
I keep thinking back to the hypnosis therapy with art workshop - I am not the most artistic person. Give me a song, I will sing it - you wanna dance, let's do this. But give me a paintbrush, and I'll look at you like you've gone crazy. But the point of this workshop was to just paint without judging yourself - and just let yourself be creative without worrying about it. And while I type that - I realize how crazy that makes it sound - and very hippie-esque. But the weird thing is that while I was painting, I didn't care what my painting looked like. And thinking back on it - my painting SUCKED. (I tossed it shortly after leaving the event). But while I was working on it - I was just simply painting just to paint. It was pretty cool. I'm not sure if that's the hypnosis at work - or if I just didn't care what the other strangers in the room thought of my painting skills. Either way, it was a nice feeling.
