how we discovered our method
The A-Ha Moment
There has to be another way.
There has to be an easier way, a more enjoyable way, and a truer way to getting past our blocks.
This is the inspiration that started The Creative Unblock.
Both of us had read so many books, taken so many courses and tried so many different things to deal with real and important blocks in our lives. We both had a deep sense that there must be another way, but didn’t know how to find it.
Coincidentally, it found us.
In 2019 Margaret was approached by a non profit to create an Art Curriculum for helping people address their past and move on. She quickly formulated a method that combined her experience in both Art Education and also as a now Professional Abstract Painter. What Margaret quickly found was that creativity, combined with addressing their personal block, created a shift into a different state of consciousness. One that they had never experienced before, and never experienced their problem within before.
This process, this method, allowed the group members to experience their problem in a new light. They felt stronger, they felt more in tune with themselves and best of all they felt that maybe for the first time in their lives, they saw some new ways of moving forward.
At the same time Margaret was teaching her new method to this non profit group, Jake was searching for a coaching program to teach. Having personally experienced major blocks in his own life, and feeling frustrated with the lack of progress and depth of the current programs that most people use, he was feeling uninspired with the options, as those very options were the ones he had chosen when he was stuck, and saw nominal progress.
It wasn’t until he experienced Margaret’s curriculum that he was blown away.
Jake writes, "The amount of insights, intuitive hits and the depth of my true Self that was revealed when using this new tool was astounding. I couldn’t believe, right there in front of me, that instantly I saw things that had been unknown and unconscious to me in my years of searching"
It was a true a-ha moment, and it was the birth of our company and our method.
Everyone knows the value of creativity for helping with anxiety, promoting well being, and feeling more connected to ourselves. But that’s only part of it’s power.
We can leverage the true FULL power of creativity in helping us move past the hardest places in our lives. Places where we feel stuck, hopeless, and unable to move forward.
This is what creativity and specifically our method does, and it works because it simply creates a SHIFT in consciousness.
When you are stuck, you are essentially “locked in your left hemisphere”. Meaning you are stuck in one side of our consciousness completely unaware that you are stuck there, and also completely unaware there is another side of you.
By using our method with your problem, you immediately SHIFT into a new consciousness. You see answers that weren’t there before, and you start to experience new ways of moving forward, new insights into your self, and a radical sense of Self awareness that you’ve likely never experienced before. So yes creativity is helpful in so many different ways, but we’ve seen it work in the most difficult and darkest places as well. That’s where its true power reins, in the most difficult areas of our lives.
Artist have known this for years, but it’s not common knowledge. We hope to make it common knowledge and to bring this amazing new way to anyone, who like us, had tried so many different things, but came away feeling that something was still missing.
We value spirituality, depth psychology and creativity. We know that the true answers are in the subconscious, and our method allows a safe avenue, a safe line of communication for you to gain access and gain best of all insight and breakthroughs from this place. Our joy is to see your a-ha moments, and to see the sense of empowerment you feel when you realize you knew the answers all along, you just needed a different way.
We are that different way.
You’re safe here. You’re valued here. You’re believed in here.
