Hi all! Glad to have found this little space on the Internet to interact with y'all.
So basically, this is what's going on.... I'd maybe for the past 11 years I have dealt with MAJOR artist's block. Life of course, happened, I went through six years of college, went through two years after graduating college struggling to find a job, and now I find myself on the precipice of rediscovering myself, but I feel like something is tugging me back.
I know there are some things that contribute to my block. The one thing I find myself struggling with primarily is my upbringing in a religious institution, a private Christian school for 13 years of my life from kindergarten until senior year of high school. Some memories weren't so bad, but some things have had a lasting effect more so than others and it has been taking me quite some time to "deprogram" my thought and belief system, being an active witch, if not practitioner.
Feelings of guilt, shame, and fear cloud my mind or my inspiration is stifled and struggles to get up off the ground and start flying.
What do you guys think I should do? Right now, it feels like I'm literally walking in a black forest trying to find myself again.
TL;DR - Major artist and "witch" block the past 11 years, on and off with magic, trying to find myself, wondering how I should find myself again...
Thank you for listening guys.
