The Story of My Inner Child

My ‘her-story’ goes way back to my childhood; growing up I had a natural ability to write and draw; at school my two favourite subjects were English Literature and Art.  But my God-given talents were never encouraged at home; I was made to feel as if I was ‘no good’ at anything!  The negative comments I received made me lack confidence in my abilities; I used to screw up any piece of writing or art that I did, because I thought it wasn’t good enough.  I thought I wasn’t good enough!

By my early twenties, I had stopped writing creatively, drawing and painting altogether.  I chose a career that didn’t involve using my creative talents, and remained a blocked writer and artist for nearly 20 years.

My inner child was crying out to be heard, but I ignored her.

I was unfulfilled, and miserable.

But when my second son was born in 1995, I decided that the best thing for me to do would be to work from home.  I wanted to do something creative, so I started the process of working on my Self; I began reading Self development books that helped me to grow in Self confidence, but the main book I credit with helping me to unblock as a Writer and Artist is ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron. 

The Artists Way

I didn’t just read the book, I did what it told me to do (it’s more of a workbook).  I began with writing my Morning Pages (which I still do today), taking my inner child on our weekly ‘Artist Dates’, and  getting to the root cause of my insecurities.  Where was that critical voice in my head coming from that told me “You? An artist? (LOL)” or “You? A brilliant and successful writer? You could never amount to that!”  I had to get to the root of where these voices were coming from, then counter-attack them with POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS like “I am a brilliant and successful artist”, “I have rich creative talents”, “I am confident and competent in my creative work”, “I trust my perceptions”….

It didn’t happen overnight, but in 2001 I started writing and recording my poetry: One of the first poems I wrote was ‘My Artist Child’ (inspired by the book).   Then in 2008 I unblocked as an artist, and the first painting I did was of my inner child:

My Artist Child with Poem

(inspired by the book: ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron)

At the time I wrote the poem ‘My Artist Child’ I was just beginning to allow my inner child the freedom she wanted to create.  I had to learn how to ‘get out of the way’ as the adult, and allow her to express herself freely, whether it be writing, painting, singing, or dancing. 

Since 2001 I’ve written and recorded over 26 poems; 13 are on my debut CD ‘Seeds of Love’, and the rest will be on my next CD ‘Rise of the Phoenix’.  I also painted 11 paintings, and published 3 books (one being the Book of Lyrics to the CD!).

The thing I love most about my inner child is her ability to express herself freely, in a way that I as the adult wouldn’t dare to!  I remember when I was writing my novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’ I kept hearing that critical voice inside my head saying “You can’t write that!”, but I just stepped out of the way and allowed her the freedom to write whatever she chose to.

You’ve seen what children are like, haven’t you?  They say things that can be quite embarrassing for the parent.  They’d run around naked (if allowed).  They aren’t Self-conscious.  That’s what my inner child is like: Uninhibited!  She writes in a way I wouldn’t dare to; adult stuff but with the innocence of a child (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

After writing my novel, I felt compelled to write Part Two to ‘My Artist Child’:

My inner child is wild and free –

She has no boundaries!

When I decided to set her free

I KNEW it would cost me my privacy!

(And anyone who’s had anything to do with me,

So if that’s YOU – I’m sorry).

 

She sits in the seat of my subconscious mind

Observing all I’m doing

Then she turns my experiences into a song,

story, or poem!

 

Thanks to her, my life is an open book

Go on, open it, take a look!

 

And she’s left ME, the adult

To deal with all the DRAMA she creates

She doesn’t know WHERE TO DRAW THE LINE!

I know I should be embarrassed,

But to be honest,

All I keep seeing are £££££££££££’s…….. (pound signs!)

I used the painting of my inner child to illustrate Year Two of ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’ This is where the main character discovered that her roots were actually in Africa, not the ‘West Indies’ as she’d been led to believe, and also where she inspired her partner to awaken his inner child!

The Black Butterfly Effect

My poem ‘The Black Butterfly Effect’ is all about TRANSFORMATION of the MIND: Just as the caterpillar has to go through a transformation to become a butterfly, we too have to go through a process to transform our MIND:

The psychological thriller ‘The Butterfly Effect’ is all about going into the past (childhood) in order to change the present; I realized that my childhood programming wasn’t serving me as an adult, so I began the process of ‘reprogramming my mind’ for success!

Part of my reprogramming involved separating my Self from the world’s way of doing things; I literally ‘cocooned’ my Self from outside influences – no newspapers, 9-5 job, or ‘tell-lie-vision’.

There’s a scripture in the bible which says ‘Do not conform to this world, but BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND so that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God’ (Romans 12:2)

My goal is to be living proof that it is God’s Will for us to live freely and in abundance!

This world system has us trapped in a matrix that means that unless you have money, you suffer.  Is that what life is really all about?  Working to pay bills?  Sounds like a slave system to me!

So the Butterfly Effect is all about transforming your Self from who you are now, to who you wish to become.

‘Coming near to your transformation time, you will find that you begin to eat ravenously, devouring every bit of information that you can get your hands on that will help you to transform your Self from the CATERPILLAR into the BUTTERFLY’

I read countless Self-help books like ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ by David J. Schwartz, ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ by Anthony Robbins, ‘Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway’ by Susan Jeffers, ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron, ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill, ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne, ‘Conversations with God’ by Neal Donald Walsch, and ‘The Master Key System’ by Charles F. Haanel.

I didn’t just read these books, I devoured them! I did all the exercises set in them, and slowly, began making progress in transforming my mind.

I also attended seminars that would help me change my way of thinking: In 2006 I attended an Anthony Robbins weekend seminar.  Prior to attending this weekend, I used to suffer from frequent bouts of depression, but he said something that made me have a paradigm shift; he said the ‘depression’ is just a fancy word for ‘negative thinking patterns’.  He explained that ‘you can change your state in an instant, just by choosing to think positive thoughts’.  I have to tell you,  I’ve never suffered from depression again! (I found a way to heal my Self through Colour Therapy)

But recently I got to a point where I couldn’t listen to another motivational speaker, read another Self help book, or attend another seminar – I was bloated!  Some may call it ‘fat cat syndrome’ but in this case, it’s just part of ‘The Black Butterfly Effect’

‘When you’ve consumed so much that your body becomes heavy and you’re too bloated to move…’

The ‘shedding of the skin’ process meant I had to lose some friends and family who wanted to keep me trapped in my old body (way of thinking), who didn’t want to accept the fact that I was going through a transformation.  It’s bad enough when your own body is fighting the changes, let alone when it comes from other people as well!

Then I developed a new belief system; “I don’t have to work hard to live abundantly” (in fact, rich people don’t work hard!), “I didn’t have to be poor to be spiritual”, “Money isn’t  the root of all evil”  and “I can make lots of money doing what I love!”

This world is currently based on a slave system; we are conditioned to believe that getting a good education, a good job and being able to pay our bills every month is a ‘successful life’.  The Truth is, most working people are just one paycheck away from poverty.

If you’re not happy with the progress you’ve made in life so far, it’s not too late to change!

BlackButterflyProductscopy

Nowadays it’s much easier to ‘reprogram your mind’.  Technology has advanced, and you can now get really cool ‘brain entrainment’ audios that you listen to with headphones just before you fall asleep/wake up, or subliminal videos that you just watch and they go straight into your subconscious mind and do all the work for you!  (Mine has taken longer because I wanted to do the work on my mind myself!)

The process hasn’t been easy; I’ve lost my home a few times, I’ve been broke, I’ve had to send my sons to live with their dads, but through it all, I stayed focused on my goal.  When you’re going through transformation, your mind will fight to stay in its old program!

I now feel as if I’m at the point where my ‘colours are beginning to show’.  I’m almost ready to spread my wings and fly and dance among the flowers………..

‘The Preparation’ is all about SHARING ENERGY

My King Plain copy

‘The Preparation’ was written to compliment my painting ‘My King'; I was actually staring at the painting while writing the poem!  I was also listening to an instrumental by acoustic guitarist Theo Calliste while writing the lyrics, as I was collaborating with him to write poetry to 11 of his compositions! (8 are on my CD ‘Seeds of Love’)

‘The Preparation’ is an inspired piece of writing; it’s one of my poems which I didn’t have to think about much while I was writing.  I believe ‘The Preparation’ is actually a sacred ritual; a woman is supposed to know how to prepare her man for sex, especially if he’s had a rough day in the outside world.  She must know how to create a peaceful home environment that will heal his mind and body, and not allow him to come home and transfer any negative energy that he may have picked up from work or from relating with negative people during his day.   This works the other way around too!  It could be the man or woman who is feeling drained of energy; The Preparation‘ is about SHARING ENERGY.  There may be times when your partner is feeling drained of energy, and you may have to transfer some of your energy to them; then when they are feeling rejuvenated, they can transfer the energy back to you:

As you walk in,

I can feel your passion…rising.

But you’re not ready for me

See, you’re still carrying the negative energy

You picked up along the way during your day.

So let me run you a bath

And help you wash all your troubles away

Leave behind all the pressures of life

The worries and strife

The drama, the bills

And enter if you will, into my Queendom…

A safe haven

A place of mental freedom

Feel my energy

Come, lay your head on my chest

Let me stroke your face,

Erase the tension,

Feel my breath

as I whisper sweet words of love in your ears

Ease your fears,

Let me massage away the stresses of the day

Relax, enjoy!

Let your Self go

Think of nothing,

Not even me

Let the aromatherapy soothe your mind, spirit, soul and body

Allow it take over all your senses

Let your mind be free

Hmmm…there you go

Now you’re ready for me!

Touch me, and now I want you to

Touch me, you know it’s only you

Who can make me feel the way that you do

So touch me and make my dreams come true.

You’re my Sun, I’m your Moon

Ooooh, there’s nothing more I love to do

Than to share my energy with you

‘Cos you give it back to me so damn good!

(Oh baby, you make me wanna sing

with this sweet sweet loving you’re giving!)

So touch me,

Lay your kisses on me and

Touch me all over my body baby

‘Cos when you’re touching me your love for me I feel

So touch me and let me feel your energy

Mmmmm….yeah, right there baby…

Sexual energy is a powerful force, and we haven’t been shown how to use it properly, apart from to have sex, but it has many other uses!  We aren’t even told what’s happening spiritually when we join our physical bodies with another.  If you have multiple sexual partners, or you are sleeping with someone who is an ENERGY VAMPIRE, you can end up mentally, emotionally and spiritually DRAINED!

Energy Vampires will DRAIN your energy without giving it back – My poem ‘BEWARE THE VAMPIRE!‘ tells you how to recognize one! (Click on the link to listen to/read the poem).  I have to admit that I was vex when I wrote it,  and I was never going to release it because I thought about the fear it might create, but it’s one of my inspired poems, and I do believe it’s my duty to ‘warn the sisters’ about this type of brothers!

I Am Fertile Soil!

What does it mean to have a ‘Fertile Mind’?

My poem ‘Fertile Soil’ from  my CD ‘Seeds of Love’ explains:

Chorus:

I am fertile soil

When I plant Seeds of Love

In the garden of my mind

They’re gonna blossom!

Verse 1:

Think of every thought you have as a SEED

The thoughts you sow, you will reap;

Thoughts rooted in Love will grow into beautiful flowers

And thoughts rooted in Fear will grow into fast-growing weeds!

(repeat Chorus)

Verse 2:

All thoughts are either rooted in LOVE or FEAR

(Fear is the opposite of Love)

Thoughts rooted in Love, will produce a harvest after their own kind,

And thoughts rooted in fear will produce a harvest after their own kind

So plant Seeds of Love in the garden of your mind!

(repeat Chorus)

Thoughts rooted in Love produce a harvest of health, wealth, happiness and peace

While thoughts rooted in fear produce a harvest of sickness, lack, poverty and disease!

Chorus:

I am fertile soil (rep)

When you plant your Seeds of Love

In the garden of my mind

They’re gonna blossom!

Cezanne Quote

(repeat Chorus)

Just remember, you reap what you sow…..

The process of ‘tending to the garden of your mind’ involves uprooting negative thoughts as soon as they spring up, and replacing them with positive thought-seeds:  Negative thoughts are like WEEDS, which if left unattended, will spring up fast and CHOKE your positive thought-seeds;  Mother Nature really has shown the way!

I am Fertile Soil

I used to suffer from depression, but when I learnt how to meditate, it helped me to control my negative thinking patterns.  My painting ‘Self Love’ flashed into my mind just as I was about to fall asleep one night in 2009.  I drew the image and painted it a couple of weeks later. It wasn’t long after this, that I started learning how to meditate.

‘Fruitful Mind’ (Male & Female)

Fruitful Mind Male & FemaleMy paintings ‘Fruitful Mind’ (Male and Female) compliment each other; they are symbolic of being ‘in the same place mentally’.  It helps if you surround your Self with people who are on the same wavelength as you mentally. The golden fruit symbolizes good thoughts that produce a good harvest.

You can get a SIGNED COPY of the ‘Seeds of Love’ CD & its Book of Lyrics from www.singlespiritualandsexual.com/Products (My artwork has been used to illustrate my poems!)

Sex with the EX

2014Cezanne8888D2-65

I was inspired to create this poster after getting back in touch with two of my ex’s recently.  The first was the man I based the ‘Charles’ character on in my novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’.  We had an on-off thing for 11 years; our first meeting (and sexual experience) was so profound, that I wrote it into the story!  Over the 11-year period, every ‘encounter’ with him helped me to grow as a person.  However, we never had a proper relationship.  Maybe we weren’t meant to.  The second was a friend of mine who I had an ‘arrangement’ with about 15 years ago; Neither of us were in a position to have a full-blown relationship at the time, so we had an agreement that we would meet up every other weekend, just for sex.

Last year I had sex with the EX
SAFE sex I might add (let me just make that clear from the start)
But one thing I forgot to protect myself from was
Sexually Transmitted Diseases of the HEART.

Let me tell you the story…

See, we’d been apart for a while now
Our relationship ended amicably,
And even though we couldn’t get along, we still had a lot of chemistry
Anyway, he was now with a new girlfriend and I was practicing celibacy
After my own long-term relationship ended bitterly.

But after two years of celibacy, I was feeling horny
And not wanting to sleep with just anybody
I thought of my EX.

Now I already knew he was taken, but that didn’t stop me
See we still kept in contact and it was obvious from what he’d been telling me
That she wasn’t loving him the way he needed to be
So I took it upon myself to give him some of what he’d been missing
And I invited him over for a ‘cup of tea’.

Now he knew what he was getting himself into
So if it didn’t bother him, it didn’t bother me.

It wasn’t long before we were kissing and touching
We forgot all about the original plan
We made love over and over again
I didn’t stop until I’d had my fill and it felt soooo goooood!
“You’re just as I remembered” he crooned.

It wasn’t just sex, it was more like a re-connection
A deep spiritual connection, like what we’d had in the beginning?

But then, my ex reminded me about his girlfriend,
His ‘other half’ he had the nerve to exclaim
Like what we’d just shared meant nothing to him!

I broke my two year celibacy for a night of passion
(Well two nights actually)
But while I was having fun with him and feeling free
Releasing all my pent-up passion with multiple orgasms
I forgot that he didn’t belong to me
He told me that he had no intention of breaking up with her
And that I should just see it for what it was meant to be
‘A bit of fun’
How could he do that to me?

And what did it do for me really?
For a whole month, I was messed up
Mentally, emotionally, spiritually
It felt as if the very essence had been drained from me
It was as if the bad karma I’d created was coming back to haunt me!
I didn’t know the woman, she didn’t even know about me
But I wouldn’t want my man going off sleeping with another woman
So why was I sowing those seeds?
‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’
That’s the Law,
‘What goes around comes around’ is true.

It took a while for me to recover from my wrong,
To heal from the damage I’d done
But as time went on and I learnt the lesson
I began focusing on developing my Self and making progression….

But then, who calls me up out of the blue?

My EX! (As they do)
Telling me how much he misses me and can we get together, “just us two”

Now sister-friends,
When your ex calls you up telling you he wants to get together for old time’s sake
You should take that as a warning
And take the quickest exit out of THAT conversation before you get drawn in,
You know what I mean?

Now what got me vex was that my ex ASSUMED I’d be up for it
He just wanted to have his cake and eat it!
He didn’t even notice how much I’d grown spiritually,
All he was interested in was cheating on his woman, with me!

He thought I was that same silly girl he was dealing with a year ago (churps)
I had to tell him where to go!

So ladies,
Next time you fancy some sex and you think of your EX
Keep your fantasies in your panties where they belong,
And don’t try to turn them into reality
You see life is a journey,
And relationships are simply stepping stones on your journey in life
And when you begin to realize them as such,
You want want to keep taking steps…….BACKWARDS.

Do you want to hear the ending to this story?

THIS year when my EX called me up
I told him;
“Next time you’re feeling frisky,
Don’t think of me
Don’t call me, don’t text me, don’t even email me
See I’m not looking for a fling,
I’m looking for my King
And you already have your Queen”

I don’t even feel sorry for him.

Sex with the EX didn’t make much sense
But it certainly made a good…..poem.

Copyright Cezanne Poetess 2007

So now they are both back on the scene.  The temptation to jump back into bed with the first ex was great, since that’s what we always did.  Luckily, I had moved to the other side of London, so those late night calls that would normally have end up with ‘get ready, I’ll come and pick you up’ or ‘jump in a cab and come over’  weren’t going to happen so easily.  It wasn’t long before I remembered why we hadn’t had a proper relationship; although the sex was great, we were on two different wavelengths mentally.  I’d written my poem ‘Sex with the EX‘ after an ‘encounter’ with him in 2007, but we still had sex after that (I was just venting!)

The second ex saw this poster on my Whatsapp profile and asked ‘Do I qualify as an EX?’

So are there any times when you can make exceptions to this ‘No Sex with the EX’ rule?

Personally, I believe that relationships are designed to help you to grow and develop.  Once you’ve learnt what you can from that relationship, it’s time to move on.  I’m guilty of looking back, thinking that there might still be something there to salvage, but in reality, as my poems says, “When your ex calls you up telling you he wants to get together for old times’ sake, you should take that as a warning, and take the quickest exit out of that conversation before you get drawn in, you know what I mean?”

Enjoy your journey!

FREE PDF ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!

Last week I had a two-hour coaching session with ‘SuccSex Coach’ Cv Pillay, author of The Secrets Your Mama Didn’t Tell You About Men (the MANual to Amazing Sex).  He set me a 7-day challenge and said if I complete it, what he was going to tell me next was going to blow my mind! The first part was relatively easy; get 5 clients paying me £30 for a half hour Skype session.  I was unable to complete the second part of the challenge, as it involved having sex! He applauded me for being honest with him, and seemed to develop a new level of respect for me for not having completed it!  Cv is doing everything I want to do; coaching women on how to have amazing sex.  The only difference is, I’m coming from the spiritual aspect; his book is all about using sex to keep your man, whereas I want to show you how to build a connection with your partner on a mental, spiritual and physical level.

Since writing my Self-help novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’ I’m much more aware of sexual energy, and what it can be used to achieve.

Book 2 Whilst writing my novel, I woke in the middle of the night and ‘channelled’ the scene where the couple performed their first sex ritual (I’d never even heard of them before!)   In the ritual, the man built a clear image in his mind of what he wanted to MANifest (it’s the MAN who creates the image).  He then shared his vision with her, and once she had ‘caught the vision’ the gateway opened (her womb) and the seed was planted.  I’m not talking about babies here; the womban’s womb is a portal for anything from the non-physical realm to come through.  As my book explains, babies are souls coming from the non-physical realm into this physical world.  However, the womban has the ability to bring anything from the non-physical realm into the physical world through sex rituals.

The reason I chose not to complete the second challenge was because I’m waiting to meet ‘The One’ I can perform my first sex ritual with!
