Vision Board Workshops Inspire Women to go Back to School

In the Envision 2012 Vision Board Series,  3 out of 6 regular group participants were inspired to make the life choice to go back to school.  One woman decided to finish high school; one “remembered” she was an artist and enrolled in an arts program at University; and our guest blogger, Fabienne Gassmann, enrolled in a college program to become an addictions counsellor.  Their choice to go back to school was life-changing for all of them.

Prompted by the images in their vision boards and supported to take a risk by the group energy, each of these women was able to reconnect with a part of themselves that wanted to learn and grow.

Vision boards are powerful ways to literally “see” what you want.  When done in a supportive group environment the power of the images is magnified and can serve to lift everyone and give us the courage to do what we thought we never could.

Following is Fabienne Gassmann’s story of how being in the vision board workshop group helped her connect with other like-minded people who helped her realize that just like them, she could do it.  She could realize her dream of going back to school.

I hope her story inspires you to join a vision board group and be lifted by the synergy of working with others who are also moving towards bringing their visions into reality.  Enjoy- Dr. D

Back To School In My 50s? by Fabienne Gassmann

What inspired me to go back to school? Well, I attended a vision board workshop and met all kinds of interesting people.  One person greatly inspired me when she announced that she was going back to school.  I realized that if she could do it, so could I!

I realized that there is always time to reach for my dreams, so I signed up for an Addictions and Community Services Worker program.  After I signed up I realized that as difficult as it was to overcome the hurdle of taking a risk to go back to school, once signed up there where other difficult points on the path.  I began to question myself:

1. Can I handle the college level work? 2. Do I have the time? 3. How will the other students (younger) treat me?

Quickly I realized that there is no difference between a younger student and an older one. We were all there for the same reason – to learn.    At first it felt a bit odd to go back to school with so many younger students. I was a bit nervous.  When I noticed that the other students were not just younger but also middle-aged, and all very nice and very helpful. I felt more comfortable.

It’s hard work taking care of family, working full-time, and going to school. My load is full!  It requires good time management skills in order to succeed in balancing school, family, and work. I applaud anyone who can do this.

A wise woman told me there is no shame in going back to school at any age. It is a shame to not try to make life better.  Whatever I want, fear should not stop me.

Earlier in life I gave up the opportunity to go to college in order to raise my family and for other reasons too. However, all these reasons for not attending college earlier should never be a reason to give up furthering my studies.

The vision board group inspired me to take the steps to get the education I need to be true to my passion to serve a wide range of people in my community.

The dream that flows through me….

Images and Intentions: Honoring your Creative Process

When you are creating images of intentions you are engaged in a creative process and tapping into Creative Source Energy. This is the same energy that makes the grass grow, your nails grow and your hair grow. It is a creative energy and life force that animates and brings new creations to life.

As such, it is wise to honor your process. Just as you would not uncover grass seeds to show others that you have planted grass, sometimes your seedling images of new realities need to be kept quiet so that they are given a chance to grow. Sometimes exposure to the light, talking about them too soon or to the wrong people can serve to stop their process. This is especially true if shown to people who discredit or make fun of your process.

Protect your images as if they were seeds that you were planting in a fertile Universe that can grow them over time and sometimes even underground in places where we cannot observe what is happening.

The “Eye” as Personal Image of Ethics: by Kate Moebus

Guest blogger Kate Moebus shares her image and a personal statement on ethics.  May it inspire you to create a concrete image of ethics you can take into your practice. -Dr. Duanita

Guest Blogger:  Kate Moebus

While in the process of developing my concept I decided to utilize a variety of words that I thought were not only descriptive of some of the actual functions of an eye, but are also symbolic of our role as counselors and our ethical duties.

Focus: understanding the root cause of our client’s experience, or the ethical dilemmas we may face.

Clarity: understanding the means in which our clients perceive their experience, or understanding the true implications or cause of an ethical dilemma.

Vision: our ability to empathize with our clients perspective and truly understand their perspectives, and the ability to understand ethical dilemmas from the perspective of others.

Prophecy: our ability as counselors to communicate effectively with our clients, and address ethical dilemmas with the utmost respect and dignify for those involved.

Presence: maintaining a true relationship with our clients and respecting them as individuals, and always carrying our ethical values with us at all times.

Intelligence: our ability to use our minds effectively in assisting our clients and utilizing our knowledge and experience to make ethical decisions.

Perception: our ability to perceive the world from the lens of our clients (and others), and our ability to alter our own lens in understanding the dimensions of an ethical dilemma.

Observation:  our ability to gain perspective into the world of our clients in our attempt to understand their world, and our ability to accept another´s perspective in relation to an ethical decision or dilemma.

Awareness: always advising and behaving in the best interests of our clients by educating ourselves, and always behaving in an ethical manner by seeking consultation and advice from others.

Image Reviews in Art Therapy

Images and Intentions Course

 To do an image review when you are doing art therapy, take all of the images created over a particular time period and put them up on the wall in a chronological sequence. Look at them and check for:

1.  Themes

Check for themes in your work. Are you creating the same thing or working with an image more than once? Do you have a color, shape, word or image theme going? Do you have a preponderance of images in any one area of life?  Ponder the significance of all themes found.

2.  Recurring Images

Watch for recurring images and patterns in your work. Note all the places that the same image, color or shape occurs. Note any changes in these areas that have happened over time.

3.  Shifts of focus

What is usually in the very middle of your images? What do you place at the center of attention in your images? Does this focus vary? If so, how has your focus shifted?

It is helpful if you can find a friend or several friends that believe in you and your process to look at the pictures with you. Sometimes ‘fresh’ eyes spot things that yours no longer see.

Make notes of what you have observed just by doing this visual review of images created over time. Keep the notes in a separate book that you can pull out next time you get together with your supportive friends to review your images over time.

What is your experience with art reviews?  We would love to hear from you.  Leave your comments below.

Images of Counselling Ethics: Guest Blogger Ariel Yu

Creating personal images of ethics can be a way to embody our ideas about counselling ethics in a way that grounds them into our very being.

In this series, I have invited counselling ethics students to share their images and words about ethics with the intention of inspiring you to pull out some materials and make your very own concrete image of ethics that you can take into your counselling practice in the hopes that it always reminds you to serve at the highest level of integrity possible.

Introducing…Ariel Yu, Spring 2012, Guest Blogger.  Thank you for sharing your image and statement.  –  Dr. Duanita

Personal Statement of Ethics

by Ariel Yu

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro

We were asked to create an art piece as a concrete reminder for our professionalism and ethics. In the meanwhile, I was introduced to an interesting way of making art by my boyfriend. It was called Guitar Swirl Dipping where oil-based paints were dropped into the water/borax mixed water and the different colours would create swirled patterns. Next, a guitar was then dipped into the water and the coloured swirls were transferred onto the guitar.

Discovering the Marbling Process

I became extremely interested and wanted to create something for the ethical image using the technique so I started by researching more about how to create the art. I also discovered similar techniques used on different materials such as nails (Nail Marbling), papers (Paper Marbling), and canvases. Not being a professional artist, I got to know a bit more about different paints. Soon enough, I did a test drive on a canvas. It was through that experience and the process in which I found the ethical meaning which I was looking for.

The Creative Process as a Metaphor for Learning Ethics

The whole creating process symbolized the process of learning ethics and becoming an ethical, helping professional. Because this class was the starting point for my ethical self and I also liked to embrace the idea of collaboration between colleagues, I chose 18 small canvases to symbolize all the people in the class. Being new, white canvases, we did not know much about ethics. With a bucket of water and little bit of borax (the spreading agent), I put different colours into it and those colours were the four ethical principles, the ethical dilemma we discussed in class, our biases and beliefs, etc. Learning so much in the class, we were making beautiful swirls. According to Masaru Emoto, water is a great medium for transferring and reflecting thoughts, feelings, and messages. During the process, I was mentally reviewing the all of the things I have learned. Hopefully, the meaning I was hoping to make could transfer onto the art.

18 Individual Canvases…18 Individual Counsellors

All 18 canvases were dipped into the beautifully coloured water. We were all immersed into the things we learned about ethics and about ourselves. When the 18 canvases were now ready to be taken out of the water, each one of them was transferred with those swirls and they were all unique just like each one of us who became a unique counsellor with different biases and beliefs. We all had something different to offer to the clients.

Coming Together as One

In this helping profession, ethically we will need to collaborate with each in order to best serve the clients. We consult, monitor, and share resources with each other for the purpose of providing the best service we can offer for the clients. According to the four principles in Ethics and the New Worldview which Duanita introduced to the class, we are all one; we impact others and our surroundings by our thoughts and intentions; the universe reflects back our reality; and we need to take responsibility for our thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and intentions.

Two Levels of Meaning

Through the creative process, two levels of the meaning emerged. One is that the picture symbolized the class, the knowledge, and everything else I have learned in class and with all my fellow students. Another meaning of this picture is that each of the pieces symbolized our unique differences as counsellors.  We all have something different to offer; thus, the collaboration between us is important. Looking this picture in my office will always take me back to the class and the fundamentals about being an ethical professional and as a collaborative human-being.

“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” – Henry Ford

Images of Counselling Ethics: Guest Blogger Vahed

In this personal image of counselling ethics, this student has brought up the issue of perpective and how what we see is often dictated by context.  His painting is something he can take into his office as a concrete reminder to always take the chance and share his wise insights as he serves others to the highest level of integrity possible.

May his words and image inspire you as counselling students, practicing counsellors and teachers to also work to embody ethics in our helping professions. – Dr. Duanita

Introducing…Vahed, Guest Blogger. Thank you for sharing your personal image and statement of ethics.

Personal Image of Ethics–Statement

         I spent quite some time deciding what I should create for my Personal Image of Ethics Assignment. I knew that I wanted to try my hand at getting back at painting (I used to be quite the artist when I was younger, and I don’t bother now because I always feel like I’d never match up to my past or even to my potential).

I love being creative almost as much as I love being controversial. Being cognizant of the fact that I would be displaying my art piece in a public forum, I thought about how I would balance respecting other people’s sensitivities and my own right to freedom of expression. So I did what was drilled into our heads during class–I consulted with my peers.

The Swastika

As counsellors, we’re always taught to be culturally sensitive, and accepting and non-judgemental of others who are different to us. Keeping this in mind, I came up with the Swastika–a sacred symbol shared amongst a multitude of religions and cultures–to be the anchor for my art piece. Though it did not have religious or personal implications for me; growing up in India, I remember some of the boys in school drawing swastikas on their textbooks as a sign of respect for the process of education. I remember seeing decorative chalk outlines of swastikas outside people’s homes during holy festivals, and swastika motifs on the walls of many temples.

We all know what the Swastika represents for many other people in the World. Due to its non-consensual and blasphemous adoption by the Nazi party, the Swastika is now a world-renowned symbol for hatred and prejudice, so much so, that it is outlawed in some countries. I find it remarkable that the same symbol can evoke feelings of extreme pain and anguish for one person, but jubilation and transcendence for another. This, to me, underscores the importance of actively seeking to understand another’s point of view and cultural context, as a prime ethical responsibility. It’s easy to jump to conclusions and be ready to burn someone at the stake (crucifixion being the secondary theme to my art piece) without taking a moment to stop, slow down, think, consult, discuss and consider the benefit of the doubt.

The process of painting was a very powerful one for me. It was a great way to beat the stress by taking little ‘paint breaks’ while attempting to scale the mountain of papers that I had to write for other classes. It also taught me that I could enjoy it without being perfect–or without comparing it to how exquisite my work could be now, had only I didn’t give arts and crafts up to get into medical school. It’s a right step in the direction of letting go of the past, and for not beating myself up for the things that I cannot change.

A Creative “Accident”

Interestingly, I had the most amazing ‘creative accident’ while working on my painting. Stars have been very important to me, so much so that I’ve tattooed myself with stars, and have had a jeweller execute my star-spangled design for a gold ring that I always wear. It’s just a child-like fascination that brings me happiness. My friends often give me presents with stars in them–t-shirts, books, badges, stickers and so on. While I was redoing a part of the painting (I was trying to lighten the sky so that it would look like day instead of night) one of my star stickers must have landed on the canvas as I left it to dry. The result, as it hit me when I looked at the canvas the next morning, was the cut-out of a star, emblazoned amongst hues of Prussian, Ultramarine, Sapphire and Azure.

Images of Counselling Ethics: Guest Blogger Jennifer Bauer

Asking counselling students to create a personal image of ethics out of art materials as an assignment is usually met with a loud sigh and round of resistance that sounds like “I’m not an artist” or “I’m not creative.”

As their personal images and statements of ethics presented in this series demonstrate, working with ‘matter’, with physical substances and materials to embody your ideas and ideals regarding your ethical position as a counsellor is a powerful process that requires no artistic ability.  All you have to do is take a risk, get some materials and make a concrete object that you can take into your office which helps to remind you to always serve at your utmost of integrity as a counsellor.

May I now introduce Jennifer Bauer, guest blogger.  Thank you for sharing your inspiring image and story.  – Dr. Duanita

Personal Image of Ethics: Putting the Pieces Together

by:  Jennifer Bauer

Adler School of Professional Psychology, Vancouver BC Canada

Personal Statement of Ethics

Counselling ethics is complex; becoming an ethical counsellor and person is even more challenging. There are so many different parts of ethics that need to be considered, understood, accepted, and integrated in order to become a fully responsible, genuine, and ethical individual. Only when these different individual parts come together to form a whole, can a person be considered ethical, very much like pieces of a puzzle coming together to form an image.

I strongly believe that these different parts or pieces of the puzzle are unique to each and every person. Personally, ethics is composed of the following: responsibility, professionalism, competency, equality, respect, trustworthiness, confidentiality, genuineness, and acceptance. However, if we were to ask another person what his or her values and beliefs are regarding ethics and being an ethical person, we would have a completely different puzzle or image of ethics. It is important to note, that there are no black and white answers in ethics, only shades of grey. I would like to take this last point even further and argue that ethics is not grey but rather a variety of different colours, shapes, and patterns. I believe that ethics is ever changing and evolving and this is reflected in the design of my puzzle pieces.

Personal Meaning Behind Each Puzzle Piece

Responsibility: As a future counsellor, I am responsible for others and myself. I am responsible for providing the highest quality of care, for minimizing harm and maximizing benefits, and for believing in second chances and change.

Professionalism: At all times, I respect my clients and their struggles. I avoid any distractions when in session and devote all my efforts and attention to that client.

Competency: Education is an ongoing process. To provide the highest quality of care, I must keep my knowledge up-to-date via seminars, workshops, courses, conferences, and so on.

Equality: I believe in fair and equal opportunities for all. Everyone, no matter their skin colour, religious or spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, values and traditions, cultural beliefs, ethnicity, gender, sex, and so on, deserves a chance to change and have access to resources to do so.

Respect: We are all human beings; we are all unique but no matter our differences, we need to respect each other. I respect our similarities and differences.

Trustworthiness: Without trust, there is no helping. I believe that trust is the foundation of a healthy and positive therapeutic relationship. Trust is a gift I can offer my clients.

Confidentiality: Protecting clients and their identity. To recognise the precious and extremely private stories that clients share with me and to do everything in my capacity to protect my clients from harm by never divulging their secrets.

Genuineness: Truly and honestly caring for another human being. To mean what I say, to show that I am concerned or proud or touched by their story, and to to understand another person’s values, beliefs, and perspectives.

Acceptance: Includes being open, flexible, and non-judgemental. Accepting clients for who they are, that is, as any other human being with strengths and shortcomings. Without acceptance, there can be no trust, equality, genuineness, and respect.

Virtual Interview – Alpha Chick Blog Tour

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 6 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Mal Duane whose book Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power launches on Amazon on Tuesday February 14, 2012.

Mal Duane has triumphed over devastating life challenges to become an Alpha Chick extraordinaire. After having struggled with alcoholism as a young woman, Mal now has a dream marriage, a highly-successful business, and as a certified Professional Recovery Coach, is deeply involved with helping women discover and use their connection with the divine power to redefine their lives and step away from their pain. She also serves clients through the multi-million dollar real estate company that she built from scratch. As she strongly believes in educating women, she built a school in Konjila, West Africa that educates a hundred students annually, and created Holly’s Gift, an educational assistance fund, which will receive proceeds from the sale of each copy of Alpha Chick.

 

Alpha Chick, Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power is a model for any woman who dreams of having happiness, success, and fulfillment. It clearly guides the reader step-by-step in the process of becoming her own unique brand of Alpha Chick, using Mal’s simple 5-step formula for self-worth, freedom and transformation. The book is coming to Amazon on Tuesday February 14th, 2012 – Valentine’s Day. Mal says, “I chose Valentine’s Day because I wanted women to give themselves the gift of self-love on that day.”

Yesterday, Mal visited Debra Simpson at http://debrasimpson.com/law-of-attraction-with-mal-duane/, where she shared her recent interview with Mal on the subject of law of attraction, personal power and gratitude.

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Mal when I got to ask on the subject of healing/transformation, group support work and dealing with setbacks. I hope you enjoy it.

——-

Dr. Duanita Eleniak: Please tell us what you would suggest as a realistic, purposeful first action to begin the process of healing and transformation.

Mal Duane: Probably the most realistic, purposeful action to begin the process of healing and transformation is to be honest with ourselves about our lives. We need to deal with our issues, forgive ourselves for past negative behaviors and move forward in a happy and healthy manner. We can’t wipe the slate clean, but we can absolutely change how we feel about the past.

In the first step in the five step Alpha Chick Process, Focus, I ask women to find a way to connect with their inner voice – their higher power. Whether it’s through meditation, prayer, or writing, I encourage women to take the time to ask themselves poignant and revealing questions so their subconscious can make room for the answers.  Transformation begins when you have the courage to honestly examine your beliefs and addictive behaviors – and this is what Focus is all about.

Dr. Duanita Eleniak: Would you suggest working through this journey in a group format? What suggestions would you have to achieve this successfully with a group?

 

Mal Duane: I believe this journey can be worked through alone, or within a group. It comes down to a personal preference. I certainly advocate groups of enlightened or spiritually like-minded women supporting one another – the collective positive energy can prove very healing.

Through my website, Alphachick.com, women can choose to work with me one-on-one, or else join group coaching sessions or tele-summits to take advantage of the group dynamic.

 

Dr. Duanita Eleniak: In the moments when you have setbacks, what brings you back to yourself so that you can continue?

 

Mal Duane: I work through gratitude lists every evening before I go to bed, which helps keep my focus on the positive. And every morning I meditate to keep in connection with my higher power, which brings me back to myself, quiets my mind and helps me begin each day anew.

I know that I am on this earth to live with joy. I was not created to suffer. I look at my setbacks as lessons; “what should I be seeing here and taking away from this experience?”

In Step Four of the Alpha Chick Process, Thoughts, I encourage you to shift your thoughts to the present when you find yourself reverting to past pessimistic thoughts and damaging feelings. I show you how to use gratitude lists and how to create affirmations to help you shift from the past back to the present.

5 Tips for Beginners Working with Collage

 

 

1.  To Rip or Not to Rip

A frequent block for people just beginning to collage their images is resistance to ripping up or cutting up magazines. You will hear, ‘I hate ripping up magazines. I can’t use a National Geographic for that!’

 To get through this block: 1) ‘Save’ magazines from recycling bins. Tell yourself that they were going to ‘die’ anyway. With you creating images from them at least they will go to their grave with purpose; 2) Convince yourself that the beautiful magazines are being ‘transformed’ rather than ‘destroyed’ and that they are being transformed in act of serving the world for a Higher Purpose.

2.  A Wide Variety of Magazines

Ensure that you collect magazines representing a wide variety of subject areas (travel, home, garden, bridal, psychology, sports, cooking, etc.), ethnic groups (Caucasian, East Indian, Aboriginal, etc.), etc. If you do not have such a variety begins collecting images from recycling bins.

3.  Collect Your Collage Images

Once you discover the power of images in communicating intentions and incorporate this activity as a routine to your days, you will want to be on the constant lookout for images to collect. Can you rip that page out of the old magazine in your doctor’s office? Can you keep that business card with the interesting logo? Can you rip that word or that picture out of the newspaper? Gee that mail advertisement has a beautiful picture. Do you think you might use it one day? Old greeting cards. Specific images printed from the computer. Photocopied photos or photos printed off the computer.

 Collect images to work with in your intentional collage anywhere and everywhere you encounter them. Having your eyes open to collecting powerful images throughout your days helps keep your work with intentions in constant focus. This is a highly significant advantage that working with images and intentions has over working just with words and intentions. We know that whatever we place our attention on will amplify. The more we can focus on our intentions, the images and the feelings that they elicit, the more powerfully we magnify the attraction of our desired reality.

4.  Work with Photographs

Printing off or photocopying photographs as pictures for your collages can be a powerful way to literally put yourself into the picture of new realities. Literally seeing yourself in collaged images of your new home or your new relationship or in the new body shape that you are working toward is a powerful way of evoking feelings that allow you to imagine the reality ‘as if’ it were happening now.

5.  Store Your Collage Images

Make your storage of images suit your lifestyle. If you are highly mobile, consider cutting out images and putting them in a big envelop that can go with you. Some people like a folder with different sections so that they can categorize their images for quick retrieval.

 For those of you who work in the same location daily doing your morning intentions, consider making a little workspace which holds your images and your supplies. You may even be able to have a stack of magazines there since portability is a non-issue. Containers are another option to hold pictures and supplies you use for your intention images.

Excerpt from Introductory Course to Images and Intentions by Dr. Duanita G. Eleniak PhD
