Successful art for me is about transformation — in the image or experience, in the viewer and in the maker.
It transcends time, space and author to speak about the nature and beauty of the human experience. It reveals the mystical. It gets people looking again.
Expressing your creativity is inherently healing, and when you heal yourself, you heal others.
Your visual language carries your transmission out into the world. It is always communicating.
As a healer, your awareness of the language you’re creating and the visual frequency you’re broadcasting will be one of your greatest communication tools.
How can you cultivate this awareness?
1. Build in time to reflect on the things you make before you share them with others. Looking with fresh eyes always gives me a little clarity.
2. Don’t look too much at what other people are doing, or get caught up in trying to be original. No one else can make what you make.
I find that researching trends seldom helps my personal creativity. Instead, I make it a priority to have greater experiences of myself through physical play, meditation or spending time in nature. When you open up to your higher self the creativity can’t help but pour in.
3. Make for you first. Although sharing with others is inevitable in this digital age, creativity for creativity’s sake is so important. It removes the pressure, makes room for play and as a result we take risks, respond with our intuitive center and HAVE FUN.
Unstructured creative play helps us get to know ourselves better. It helps us become better listeners and tune in to the subtleties all around us.
