We must confront our negative beliefs. Have you ever said these things to yourself?
1. Everyone will hate me.
2. I will hurt my friends and family.
3. I will go crazy.
4. I will abandon my friends and family.
5. I can't spell.
6. I don't have good enough ideas.
7. It will upset my mother and /or father.
8. I will have to be alone.
9. I will have only one good piece of work in me.
10. It's too late. If I haven't become a fully functioning artist yet, I never will.
When we expel the negative, we must replace it with positive affirmations.
1. I am a channel for God's creativity, and my work comes to good.

Putting these things into practice can be difficult, but are essential to growing into the creator you were meant to become. Keep writing your morning pages (3 free-flow writing) and keep your weekly artist date in order to give yourself priority. As you begin to confront the negative, you will be able to replace it with positive. It will get easier.
