The Canvas Project

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone in the healing section!


I have found a way for myself to help me heal better and I'd like to share it with you guys. To encourage to try the same thing and see if it helps...


I call it The Canvas Project!


It pretty much speaks for itself but I will go ahead and explain it anyway, step by step:


1.Take a canvas ( a big or a small one, whatever size you like)


2. All the words you'd like to say to your ex, the memories, the lessons you've learned, the anger, the love, the quotes that help you. Write it down on the canvas!


3. If you'd like to express yourself with paintings, you can do that too! Or combine the two. Even better, use whatever you like ( photographs, pieces of a magazine, you can make a collage


4. Everytime you are done, you put a scarf around it. To close it off. Because that is exactly what you must try to do in your mind too. Put a scarf around the subject ( your ex) and just let it be for a while.


5. When you feel the urge to continue, you just take off the scarf and when you're finished for the moment, put it back on.


6. If you are totally done with it, and then I really mean you have put down EVERYTHING you wanted. Everything that came to mind. You have just emptied your mind by putting it all out of it onto the canvas. Paint it over!


7. You can for example paint a closed door over it. Or you just make it blanc again. Or you paint a butterfly. Something that is symbolic for closure for you. I painted something very abstract over it and for me it resembles a wave. A big wave that washes over my all the emotions and memories and just washes it clean again.


( I will put a picture of this on this thread if you guys want to see it)


I hope I have inspired someone out here to do the same. It has helped me alot , if it didn't I would be here making this thread

    • Girls Will Act Like THIS When They Develop Feelings For You (Early Signs Of Affection & Attraction)
      Is she developing feelings for me? In today's video we're going to be discussing those very early initial signs she is developing feelings for you. Just as a girl starts to fall for you her actions and behaviours will begin to change when she's around you. From the types of texts she sends you to the way she is in your company.

      There is no better feelings in the world than that of falling in love with someone. Finding someone that you can share your life with is the best and it's something that everyone is searching for. Women are known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and when they fall for someone they fall deeply for them. And often experience the feeling of love before the other person does. So they normally try to keep this to themselves though because they don't like feeling vulnerable. And they want to make sure that you feel the same before they say anything.

      So because of this it can make it difficult for the men because it's hard to tell if they are developing feelings for you or not. It often means that men have to take that initial risk and announce their feelings before a lady does. So today's video I'm going to tell you what girls do when they start to develop feeling for you. Now this is going to help you understand when a lady likes you or if she doesn't. And it should help you be more confident when it comes to making that first move.

If romantic relationships turn to obsession, especially after they're over, it's time to heal trauma bonds that "hook" you in to people who are selfish, manipulative, and who "blow hot and cold." In this video I respond to a letter from a man who struggles to detach from an ex who tries to keep him at arm's length, but hooked on her all the same.
