Examine Your Armor
In order to uncover buried parts of yourself you first must remove your armor but before you can do that you need to know what type of armor you are wearing. On a piece of paper draw yourself wearing armor.
Where is it most dense? Where is it the thinnest? What is it made out of…diamonds, scales, mirrors? How heavy is it, does it weigh you down?
We do not need to destroy our armor, only become aware of it and discard or lighten what is no longer needed.
By knowing how we protect ourselves we also come to know what we fear and what holds us back.
