She looked down at the screaming woman’s face and instantly felt her stomaching tightening up into a tense little knot.
The fierce and wild expression seemed out of place with all of the softer pictures and words in her collage.
Like someone else had stuck it there by accident, or worse, glued it there intentionally to make her sick.
Over the last few weeks I’ve done four vision board workshops and spoke with dozens of women about what they see in their collages.
Each collage is made up of cut-out images and words that my clients choose quickly and then edit and arrange on their boards with care.
When the collages are all done and everyone has started talking about the lovely things they see in their boards, I shift speed and throw out a doozy of a question.
What part of the collage makes you feel uncomfortable?
That was the question I asked that led us to “the scream.”
The question hits hard, especially since all of the other questions are as sweet and cuddly as a basket full of puppies.
It’s my favorite question. (And no, I’m not a sadist.)
So, why do I love that question so much?
