What I love so much about this method of Intuitive Painting that I practice and teach is that it gives me the ability to be with intense energies that I experience sometimes daily. Be it fear, passion, excitement, grief or anger my brush combined with paint can handle it. And not only handle it but transform it into something beautiful and rich. And when I say beautiful I don’t mean a beautiful painting. I mean a beautiful place inside myself. A place in me that can hold all the duality of life. What happens is that Creativity opens the door for me to combine with the whole of life and see that every thing is ok– it’s all just energy.
It takes my personal dilemmas and turns them into this universal human experience. And then it is not all about me and my little mind’s interpretation of my life. It is about LIFE and being connected to the whole of it. I see that I am not alone. I am just letting the river of life flow through me one day at a time. Painting gives all the intensity a place to exist without judgement. Instead of me trying to make it all go away I have an outlet for self-expression that then opens me up to my Spiritual Essence. And from this place I can breathe and be fully in the present moment with what is.
