Did you know that you can practice meditation and mindfulness while creating ?
As we learn how to be present, our intuition guides us through the pure creative process. We get in tough with our true nature and we awaken to the mystery of life. As we open up to the Universal Creative energy and become one with it, we experience unending, surprising and multidimensional self-expression.
To go beyond success and failure, good and bad, right and wrong, liking and disliking is to discover new dimensions of being. By letting go of judgments, fears, believes and conditionings we discover who we really are. As we surrender demands of our ego we experience freedom of pure play. We learn to respond, instead of reacting; capacity for wisdom, love and compassion grows.
When we step out of the way and let creative energy work through us, our consciousness expends and connection with mysterious happens. By being able to be in the moment with whatever arises, by being aware of the workings of the mind, patterns and habits loosen their grip and we experience healing and insights.
As we paint intuitively we are not concerned with the technique, we do not plan, organize, compose, balance or make sense. Every step happens spontaneously and naturally. We don’t know where we are going and what’s going to happen. We travel in the unknown. We can recognize a deeper meaning of what’s been painted at some point, or let the mystery remain without taking it literally. As soon as we label what we think we know, we put ourselves back in the box and exploration stops. Can we stand not to know? If we do and keep the brush moving, we are being surprised beyond our wildest dreams. “Where did this come from? I could have never think of doing that! I didn’t know I could paint like that! I thought I was done with this issue in my life!” - the practitioners say as they paint. Nevertheless, we look at the paintings only as a by-product of the inner journey, we treat them like a personal journal. The gift of pure creativity manifests as a personal transformation and increased awareness of who we really are.
