“I ode this to you” [mockingbird instrumental remake] *ProvokeTheHope* full version in bio on YouTube 🎼
Show some love if you think my version was pleasant. I would love your support 🎤🙌🏼

#eminem inspired me at such an early age. Not even to be a #writer, just to do this life thing whilst #smiling. #Eminem has #created an abundance of work I am thankful for. I may question, but I’ll always support any #artist I admire. Try to look at things from a different #perspective

Pointing out Pointillism. I am lucky to facilitate an art therapy group each week for our amazing clients and today we focused on the technique of pointillism. The members were able to be playful, detailed, and gave themselves permission to whole heartedly express themselves creatively. I love seeing our community grow in such creative and collective ways! #arttherapy #expressyourself #peacefulpainting #externalization #letitoutonthepaper

One of my favorite therapeutic techniques is externalization. It’s the process by which we separate our issues from ourselves. This comes naturally for those with diabetes, as I often see references to “the diabetes monster” or other images or language to embody diabetes. But I do this a lot with anxiety.
⭐️
I often describe anxiety as a sincere yet horribly misguided friend. Anxiety wants to help you. It wants to protect you. It wants to save you. It wants you to be happy. But in reality, it knows shit about being happy. It’s too afraid, and it wants you to be afraid too because it thinks you’ll be safer that way and safe means happy. Except for all the times when it doesn’t. Which is often.
⭐️
It’s hard to argue with anxiety. Many of my clients have a hard time challenging their cognitive distortions or negative self-talk because it’s so darn convincing. Anxiety is really convincing and sometimes anxiety actually does keep us safe or gave us the heads up and so we think it’s trust-worthy.
⭐️
Anxiety, like depression, can have its place. Anxiety can keep us safe. Depression can be a normal response to sad things. But sometimes we hear messages from Anxiety or Depression (or Diabetes or Loneliness or Guilt) that are lies. Sometimes they go above and beyond what is healthy and appropriate. Those are the times we can say:
I understand, Anxiety, that you want to keep me safe. I understand that you think this will help. But I’ve been down this road and it’s not working out for me anymore. I need to try something new. I may not know what that is right now, but I need to explore what my choices are.
⭐️
What do you want to say to your Anxiety?

Subliminal Carpentry

Pertaining to that which exists subterraneous to the apparent foundations of externalization and social integration, this piece is an ambiguous self portrait of someone looking into a mirror, but instead of staring back at their own eyes, seeing the back of your head looking further into the mirror.
The search never ends. Knowledge of oneself is continuous, whether you are actively reflecting or passively ignoring, the subliminal pathways are ever evolving.

Narrative Therapy is one of my favorite modals that I use in therapy room! Don't allow your problems to define who you are. Example: you may have failed but you are not a failure. "The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem" - well said Michael White and David Epston. #narrativetherapy #michaelwhite #davidepston #externalization #therapy #phillytherapist #mentalhealth

"Man is the dwarf of himself. Once he was permeated and dissolved by spirit. He filled nature with his overflowing currents. Out of him sprang the sun and moon; from man the sun, from woman the moon. The laws of his mind, the periods of his actions externalized themselves into day and night, into the year and seasons. But, having made for himself this huge shell, his waters retired; he no longer fills the veins and veinlets; he is shrunk to a drop. He sees that the structure still fits him, but fits him colossally. Say, rather, once it fitted him, now it corresponds to him from far and on high. He adores timidly his own work. Now is man the follower of the sun, and woman the follower of the moon. Yet sometimes he starts in his slumber, and wonders at himself and his house, and muses strangely at the resemblance betwixt him and it. He perceives that if his law is still paramount; if still he have elemental power, if his word is sterling yet in nature, it is not conscious power, it is not inferior but superior to his will. It is instinct." - An Orphic Poet - Ralph Waldo Emerson quoted this Orphic passage in his book Nature

5th May 2018. Auschwitz Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp, Oswiecim, Poland.
Prisoners in the camp were gathered from all of Europe. Most of them were not able to go out the gate. There is a monument in Prague station that regrets a lot of people were forced to be sent to the camp.
アウシュヴィッツ・ビルケナウのナチスドイツによる強制絶滅収容所はクラクフから車で一時間半ほどのところにあります。1枚目はビルケナウ収容所の門を内側から撮影したものですが、この門を通ってやって来た収容者のうち、生きて外に出られた人はほとんどいません。ヨーロッパ中からこの収容所に集められた人達(2枚目)のことを記憶に残すべく、プラハ駅にはアウシュヴィッツへ収用者を送り出してしまったことを後悔している記念碑があります(3枚目)。そしてこの収容所跡にはBを逆さにしたものを形どった不思議なオブジェがあります(4枚目)。これが何を意味するのかは明日お話しします。

It was a long, mixed bag, emotional week. Unwinding. Here's the dream cover for my next picture book. The main character in this story is a Nigerian boy named Mojubaoluwa. I love his name. Everyone in the village calls him Juba. I'm sure you can tell from the image that Juba has a hot head. As always, I'm grateful for another beginning and excited to see where the story takes me. #anger #angermanagement #childhood #help #mentalhealth #lessons #childhood #hope #nigeria #inspiration #family #memories #yoruba #yorubawoman #selfcare #externalization #amwriting #children #childrensbooks #picturebooks #selfcare #kidsbookstagram #fire #hothead #picturebook #nigerianwriters #stories #womenwhowrite #mompreneur #writersofinstagram #yejidekilanko

We are both inside and outside our own cosmos, the cause and effect, the dark and the light ☯️ Drawing helps externalize concepts that, from inside the mind, feel contrary and self-defeating. When I see what’s come out on paper, I am often surprised to find these concepts simple and their purpose obvious ✍🏼😯 Journaling, painting, creating music, exercising, weeping... any and all forms of expression can show us healing simply by turning our shadow into something beautiful 👐🏼🙌🏼🙏🏼💘🎆🌌 #darkandlight #angel #cosmos #externalization #transmutation #angels #chakras #healing #expression #healingthroughart #pencil #palominoblackwing #sketch #arttherapy #artchanneling #openchannel #sanfrancisco #coffeetothepeople

We love this awesome illustration (and the story behind it!) from @yejidekilanko 🙌🙌🙌

Cheers to those memorable childhood escapades😁😁😁😁

Regrann from @yejidekilanko - Another illustration from There Is An Elephant In My Wardrobe. The image reminded me of my guava and mango tree climbing days. I was told not to climb trees. One day, my father came home while I was still up on our guava tree. As soon as I heard him honk his car horn, I fell off and impaled my hand on a stick. Guess who never went back on that tree?
