From a little acorn grew...
When we arrive on this planet, we come hard wired with innate talents, each one of us unique. Then our environment begins to shape us - as children we accept at face value what our caregivers tell us about us. We adopt the labels and beliefs that are applied to us - right or wrong. Those who care for us do the best they know how. If you plant an acorn, the only thing it can do is grow into an oak , however how the acorn is nurtured determines whether or not it grows into a mighty oak or a scraggly oak who struggles with confidence and self image.
The way we are nurtured can reflect the way we project our image to the world - the way we communicate. As adults we get to choose whether or not we will continue to adopt the way we have been nurtured - we get to choose to be better or bitter. Not everyone will carry baggage from the past, some of us do, and it can affect how successful we can become. No matter what your past, we all have 'stuff' we need to deal with now and then.

Learning about our frame of reference and how we project ourselves can help in moving forward. I have discovered this great new tool, called Tree Drawing and I want to share it with you. When we draw, thought project right from our brains and can tell what we are thinking, our farm of mind. Look at how children draw they project onto paper exactly what is going on at the time, adults are no different - we are just better at hiding stuff. However when we are given simple instructions our drawing can reveal a lot. Ready to try it? It can all be done on line, and you will get a comprehensive 'reading.
Here's what the tree drawing above tells me about the person who drew it:
- She is still grappling with confidence issues based on criticism from her mother.
- There are ten people in her life who are important to her.
- She desires her home life to be comfortable and full of friends and family.
- She is dealing with some stress in her life , and is considering issues of security.
- She is optimistic about the future, and she is generally affable, and emotionally stable.
Yes! You guessed it... that's me! From this simple exercise, I now have a place to start in making my oak tree stronger. Do you want to make changes in your life, get past your past?

I love to help people become their best selves. transition and change is with us always, we are constantly re-inventing ourselves and that requires commitment and a process.
