Helen Keller and Making the Impossible Possible

by | Nov 7, 2022 | Giants | 0 comments

My First contact with Helen Keller’s work

I first learned about Helen Keller when I went to High School in the US and read her biography in a vocabulary building class.

It was the same class, in which I also first learned about Maya Angelou.

What struck me, and what I could relate to, was the feeling of alienation and feeling misunderstood by the adults around growing up.

I could feel her little soul just not understanding what was asked of her and I still remember the moment where she understood that there was a way to communicate with the outside world, as if I had experienced it myself.

What I Noticed & What I Kept

What I found so fascinating about her story was, that it showed me, that there is more than one way to do things.

Often it feels like to lose a sense, would mean to lose access to life, but what I seem to remember from her and also heard from other people who can’t see, is that it sharpens your other senses.

For us, as people who can see and hear, it seems almost impossible to imagine thinking without these abilities, yet Helen Keller showed us that she can, that we all could.

So, looking at her life really opens us to a much more profound question of what it really is that we need to be of service in this world.

And I think the answer is not that much. All we really need is to believe in ourselves and our power, everything else can be substituted for.

As this is precisely what many of us are lacking, I opened the I AM CREATOR School, to support you, anyone who would like to, in developing those strengths.

All the cracks, all the painful experiences of limitations that we make, are what makes our perspective unique and helpful to shine a light on all facets of humanity.

My Wish for You

Often we see ourselves as somewhat faulty, not whole, because of our experiences or because we experience limits to what our bodies and minds can do.

When we put our attention to what’s missing, we miss out on seeing the opportunities we have in all other areas.

If we stay stuck in self-pity, we are the ones who limit our abilities.

As someone who was diagnosed with Epilepsy as a teenager myself and who has been on medication since, I know what it feels like not to be able to do everything that other people can do.

Especially as a teenager, it was hard to not have a first drink with everybody else and to not be able to join in on the collective experiences of my peers.

But it also allowed me to watch what was going on from the outside, and showed me parts that I was also lucky to not be a part of.

In Sociology, this gets addressed in the standpoint theory, which is used to dismantle systems of power.

People belonging to marginalized groups often have a much better understanding of how societies work, than those who are fully emerged in them.

Every perspective is valid and carries beauty. Every door that closes opens another.

Each of us cannot be everything, see everything, experience everything.

Yet, sometimes it can make us jealous that other people can do other things.

In those moments, we can recognize that it is OK to be jealous, and angry and sad that we experience limitations to what is possible for us.

And then we can also come back to recognizing all the things we do have, and be 100% sure that the person we are jealous of is jealous of us in another way.

Helen Keller, a Source of Inspiration

Helen Keller had the privilege of growing up in a family that was able to help her overcome the obstacles she had to face when she lost her abilities to hear and see.

She used these privileges to show all of us that life has much more to give than we think.

She also reminds us to concentrate on what we have and can do instead of limiting ourselves with jealousy or focusing on our limitations.

We all have superpowers and a unique perspective which are beneficial to ourselves and everyone else.

Let’s use them and each contribute in our own ways.

Do you sometimes feel jealous of other people? Do you think that because of the way you look, where you grew up ,what you have achieved, or not, what you own, or not, you are worth more or less than other people?

That is never true. You mean the world to me. You mean the world to the world and you are fantastic and unique.

All you need to do is to train your self-confidence, to begin to see this with your own eyes and start feeling it in your heart as well. The I AM Creator School can support you with that, with easy tools and reassurance.

Das Rad der Farben

Recognize yourself, with the Wheel of Colours!

The Wheel of Colours gives us a glimpse into our subconscious and can thus enable us to analyse our very individual composition, our abilities and needs more precisely than we would be able to do in the conventional way, through talk therapy, or in contact with other people.

And with this certainty, we no longer have to keep trying to figure ourselves out, but can simply act accordingly.

You can find out about your own personal Wheel of Colours, today.

Are you a creatrix?

Have you ever felt like you don’t quite belong? That you’re somewhat different from the rest of the people around you?

That there’s a yearning deep down, a knowing, that you are capable of more? That while you know you are talented and can achieve a lot, something is somehow still missing?

Then you are a creatrix. And it’s time to start living it.

I, too, felt this way as long as I can remember
And I didn’t know what I was missing.

I had friends, a partner, a rewarding job. I was an artist, an activist and created real change.

Yet, I also felt lonely, uncertain, sometimes hopeless and often stressed.

No matter what or how much I did, it never felt completely right or like I had arrived.

Something was always missing.

I think in the 80s, it was quite impossible to grow up without knowing Pablo Picasso.

I did not have a lot of access to art or discussions about art, but what I did have were calendars or postcard books by artists, with their drawings and paintings and quotes or explanations.

I remember spending a lot of time reading about the artists and studying their work.

Maya Angelou Modelled what it Means to Live with Grace

I first read ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’ by Maya Angelou when I was an exchange student in San Diego, in the US.

For me at age 16 or 17 it was the first time that I found myself in an environment where I belonged to the small minority of white people.

I think at the time, that was as confusing and new as being surrounded by palm trees at school, a presence that until then was exclusive to vacations.
