How to boost Self Love with Art

The joy of working in silence at the Gloriously Imperfect Art Days, overcoming perfectionism and imposter syndrome

In 2016 I guided groups of amazing women through weekly  Gloriously Imperfect Art Days. and it was So Good!

Creating art is an amazingly effective way to boost self-love, deal with imposter syndrome and perfectionism. 

Picture this:
A large old farm, Very high ceiling. Wood. One Long table. 10 women working for hours. Concentrated. Relaxed. Light mood. Brushes on paper. More paint. Mixing colors.

Complete silence.

"Do you want to hear some beautiful music?", I'd asked hours before.

No. They loved the silence.

They were trying out new art material. Leaning back. Fresh cup of tea in both hands. Observing their art. With Soft Eyes.

This was the afternoon session of the Art Day.  And it came with a clear desire: "I wish I could do this every week"

Someone called it: The Best Holiday Ever for Highly Sensitive Women.

I know our lives are way too busy to grant ourselves the gift of hours of silence, color and form on a daily base. Though isn't it something to put on our short list: 'Things I want to accomplish within 1 year'?

But promise me this  - I will even say please  :-) even when it's 5 minutes each week. Grant yourself the gift of color, form and silence to brighten your mood and color your day.


Find a spot somewhere in your house or office. A corner of the table will do just fine. Make sure there is not too much junk on it (because you'll want to start cleaning it instead of enjoying your bright 5 minutes)

Buy some beautiful pencils, some good quality paper.

Tell everybody to NOT touch it.

"NO you cannot borrow them. Those are mine. My shiny pencils. My fancy paper."


Close the door...

Breathe in...

Breathe out...

Close your eyes...

Visualize color...

Visualize Form...

Don't push it...

It will come...

Let form and color flow through your hands...

Let it happen...

Whatever wants to come out through you is okay...

Soft eyes...

Breathe in...

Breathe out...

A truly feminine approach which is very unusual in the marketing world. To work with the energies, with our own strengths and our own life purpose was great.

After only 1 Month I found my zone of genius, turned it in a program and sold my first 12-month group coaching program.

In 1 year I have moved more than in the 15 years before. I was very modest with my pricing, but Esther told me to double or triple my prices.

I thought: "That is crazy. No one will buy at those prices."  But my international sales keep coming.  This has given me so much self confidence.

Thank you Esther, because of your guided visualization   I could finally feel the field of my true potential.  

I have already felt the change and the elation and my dreams are happening for me right now.  I feel so open and inspired.
