Sovereign Wise Woman- Woman’s way to Freedom, power and Love

When I came to United States, I came in a dependent visa. Even though I studied Architecture in India and was working there, I couldn’t work here because of my visa. I didn’t have any family members or friends here and felt lonely. Then I had my kids and became a stay at home mom for 10 years. Slowly I started to feel more and more resentment and depression. I struggled with depression and people pleasing patterns. I lost touch with my core and disconnected from my true self because of self abandonment.
This felt like constantly living in the fawn response and desperately desiring for someone to finally recognize who I am.

At the same time, while feeling seen is the thing I most wanted to experience, it was the thing I was most scared of in the whole world - exposed, vulnerable, seen.
This internal battle followed me all the way until the moment when I decided to begin the process to reconcile the two, and to begin living the truth unapologetically, stepping out of a fawn response.
Expressing my emotions in art helped me to be aware of my subconscious patterns and to truly see and accept my neglected parts and to step into my authority as an empowered and sovereign women. 
This painting represents the battle I went through and how owning all parts of me made me sovereign. Woman’s way and journey to accept and Love their True self. Feminine way of Freedom, power and Love.
