I’ve been thinking so much about healing. About how we all need it. About how we must heal ourselves before we can fully nurture others (including our children), before we can fully offer up our work/vision to the world, before we can fully lean into the joy.  I think I used to think that healing was for those who were in serious trouble or for those who were in incredible despair, depression, or worse. It didn’t occur to me that healing was something we all need, and often. I also thought that healing was something that happened to you vs something we create for ourselves.

I’m learning how untrue both those beliefs were and how healing, in some ways, is a life long process + practice of unlearning much of what we’ve been taught and told along the way. Unlearning as in pealing back the layers of fear and armor and all the stuff that gets in the way of our truest voice. Unlearning as in going all the way back to the moment of trauma and healing that younger version of ourselves with compassionate guidance. Unlearning as in unraveling all the untrue stories we tell about ourselves while we begin to tell new, more accurate stories (I AM enough. I AM loved. I AM worthy.).

“Like archaeologists of the soul, we need to excavate our hidden depths to unearth the shards of the spirit, and then reassemble those fragments into a whole self.” – Caroline Myss 

As I continue my everyday healing practice/awareness, I am amazed at how my older life, my social work life – the younger version of myself that was lit up by self discovery – is re-emerging back into the fold as new kind of soul work life. That’s what it feels like. Good, solid, healing soul work.

Wishing the same sweet healing for you, too.

A couple quick announcements:
– Remember back in early Feb when I told you that the amazing Alex Franzen was coming to my studio to teach a workshop? Friends, the workshop sold out quickly. The even better news? We’ve added a second date. Want to come hang out in my studio with me and about 20 other people for what will be an incredible workshop? Come on over friends. There are seven spots left. Act fast! All the details are here
– This week, on Thursday, we are hosting a HUGE Hip Hip Hooray Giveaway Party. Huge. Mark your calendars, friends. You won’t want to miss it. Lots of winners, and major party favors for you! Super excited. 

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

(me, age 35) There's been a creative project that I've been resisting. It's one of those projects that looms large, my brain making up stories about it that loom even larger:  You don't have time. It's too massive of a project. Why bother.   For years now, the...
