One of the things I Learned for the first time in IC (intentional creativity) was you can start out not knowing. Not painting the final image. Most of us want to paint some “THI
NG” and it is formed and complete and done in our head and we want to bring it forward. With IC you start in the not knowing. There is framework and a map and a journey to discover the “THING” but it isn’t right away. It’s consciously way to start the journey into your heart with intent. #doorways #intentionalcreativity
Marketing and color and words that our senses take in on a daily basis primarily feed the fear and judgment of the self and other. Regardless if we are conscious or not, believe in it or not, humans are programmed. The only choice we have is to be mindful and deliberate of what is programmed into us or (mostly) we allow whatever to program us. Culture is not our friend in this regard. We are grown in a petri dish of division and self-hate.
Art and poetry is an antidote to this hence #intentionalcreativity. This morning I was feeling the profound grief of the collective, and just the profound sadness of so many people, so I felt it and wailed away in my basement allowing tears and sounds to flow. It’s a little odd, but it moves through me and I don’t feel sad or grief after it passes.
And today I thought about how my teacher Shiloh talks about including events in her paintings, and I have definitely felt painting as prayer and working with Spirit — so today I am going to go get me a mother effin’ huge canvas that will hold the world in it!
And as feelings come up that are not mine from the collective, I will paint them in and I will paint in prayers for people and events steered by the suffering and stupid, fear mongering crap being pulsed into the collective. Art is medicine, it’s one antidote of consciously changing what our senses bring in.
Super thrilled with Intentional Creativity.
I’ll be offering Tuesday Night Art Journaling classes at Matrix Coworking — donation only. It will be super fun with themes for each night using color to explore, kicking off with a Red Thread Circle in connection to the moon. Through Spirit, I developed a Lunar calendar which you have the option of using in your art journal to explore while being mindful of where the Moon is in her cycle. This is meant to be super fun, focusing on the process and intuitive painting/creation rather than any specific end result.
Topics we’ll explore include Tree of Life, Thread Art, Stone Gifts. Stay tuned for further information!
