Artistic living is a way of life that is full of enriching and joyful color, shapes, textures, words, and ideas.
Each time you practice ways to create your own art at home every day, you will unfold a process of opening up to time and space that expands you. You will feel lighter, more joy and gratitude because you will tap into your own innate wisdom and peace.
You will grow in your own peace every time you feel it and revel in your timeless being as a creator. Every time you spend a moment or two creating your own art, is time you invest in the vastness and beauty of yourself.
Art is a process of letting go, getting out of the way, polishing a skill, exploring a new technique and surrounding yourself with the results.
Artistic Living is the practice of discipline in joy. It is prayer, as it is mindful presence. It takes you outside yourself to look back at yourself so you can discover yourself anew and see yourself clearer. Art is ever evolving- like you, it is never ending-like you, it is completely open to being whatever it is without judgement or criticism, the way you want to feel and the way you are naturally. In our truest sense of self we are open, innocent and complete love. Art is a way to find it, explore that truth and revel in the joy it fosters.
Health increases in those who practice artful living. You are a creative person and so engaging with your creative juices is empowering and brain energizing. You become connected and engaged again with your vital self, your environment and the world around you. Art is healing.
You need to feel great about who you are because you are a wonderful and beautiful person. Our thoughts about ourselves change from the time we are born and they can heal, which means to become whole again. Believe in yourself and your gifts and abilities is how that healing comes through. Art is a tool for transformation that is lasting.
Get out your materials and start today by committing to yourself to create the beauty in your life you want. Your own art will lift you up as you learn and grow creatively with a grateful heart, pure and simple.
