Celebration is one of my very favourite things to do. As we draw the year to a close, I love looking back and acknowledging the magnificence and the achievements of the women I’ve been blessed to work with. As registration has now opened for Circe’s Circle: Your Creative Dream Team, I want to share with you some of the truly magical experiences of the circle’s alumni. Today I’m so happy to introduce you to the gifted Nolwenn Petitbois.
What are you creating in the world ?
I am what my dear friend Connie Hozvicka once called me: « an emergent artist ». I am at the dawn of accepting my Artistic Me and of sharing my artwork with the world. I create mixed media pieces, usually representing powerful whimsical women who have a strong positive message to deliver to the Universe. I believe in the power of Positive Affirmations and of Gratitude, that both guide me all along in my creative process.
I am also currently writing a visual autobiographical book that, hopefully, will someday be published and people will maybe relate to in some way.
How has Circe’s Circle helped ?
First of all, Circe’s Circle helped me to clarify what my project really was, I ended unfolding a project I was putting on hold for months (if not more) : my book. This was the big « DUH » moment for me because I wasn’t expected it at all when we started, I thought my project was more oriented on getting my artwork noticed and selling it eventually.
Having weekly calls for ten weeks can seem long, but it is not and it is what help us to keep going. We check with everyone, telling what we did regarding our goal(s), celebrating our achievements small and huge, supporting each other with love and non-judgement. It’s amazing how having to tell someone else « during this week, here is what I have accomplished » is a booster to actually do something, even a tiny step. And when we didn’t, it’s okay because Jamie always finds a way to turn it into something positive, with fresh eyes. « Circle » is not just there to be pretty, it’s a big part of the coaching and what helped me.
What did you learn about yourself ?
During Circe’s Circle, I learned that I can achieve any goal I set to myself as long as it goes along with my values. It’s like I needed a confirmation « yes, you can do it, it’s not too big for you, too crazy » or whatever negative thought you can have when you have this dream burning inside of you and fear sticks to your skin.
I also have the confirmation that I shouldn’t be affraid to shine from this bright colourful light I know is inside of me. And that this is this light that guides my hands when I paint and create something to release to the World.
I also learned that I am a Magnificent being and that it is not a bad thing, or a pretentious saying as I also see the magnificence in everyone.
Is there anything else you would like to add ?
I’d love you, who reads these words, to know that it can be intimidating to sign-up for Circe’s Circle. Talking on the phone with people you don’t know yet, not knowing exactly what will happen during the 10week coaching etc. But it is part of the Magic. Because Magic DOES happen during Circe’s Circle. And strong bonds are created with wonderful women.
Jamie is amazing, she knows exactly the question to ask to help you to go deeper and further without pressuring ; she is kind, her heart is huge and her soul is bright. You won’t regret investing time and money in your dream with her.
What would you like to celebrate ?
Celebration is not something I am really used to. I’d like to celebrate the positive vibes that were flowing during each calls, and continue to be felt.
I’d like to celebrate the big and small accomplishements of my Sisters.
I’d like to celebrate the end of the year and the new year that is coming soon, it will be special, you’ll see:)
