A Deeper Knowing
There is so much you can do with expressive art! This week has just been a tidbit, a little taste to entice you to continue making intuitive and expressive art on your own to develop and enhance your ability to listen to your body.
Hang your finished artwork together. View the grouping; rearrange it to make it pleasing to your eyes. It has come from the deepest, most sensitive, and wisest part of you. Breathe, and allow yourself to be guided by the knowledge it has to offer.
We are living in a fast-paced, hustling, busy world and I realize you probably don’t have much time to spare. I designed most of these activities to be completed in about 15 minutes; some, like the paint blots, take less than 5 minutes. If you can set aside 15 minutes a week to make some intuitive, expressive art, you will witness a shift in how you feel about yourself, your life, and the world around you.
Find a space – the kitchen table, a corner in the family room, a quiet nook in your bedroom. Set up your supplies before you go to bed the night before so you don’t fumble away the time looking for things. Put on some music and set your timer for 15 minutes. Then draw, paint, sculpt – whatever comes automatically from within you. At the end of 15 minutes, stop. If you are “in the flow” and you have more time available then or later, you can continue or return to your art. Make it a priority to schedule 15 minutes for expressing yourself through art each week.
Having this outlet to express what is inside – even things you can’t articulate, or of which you might not be aware – goes a long way towards creating inner peace and a deeper knowing of yourself. You will be “freeing the artist within”, the part deep inside of you that longs to be heard. Give yourself this gift – you deserve it.
