Hello. I hope this finds you well. This is an unusual time and place to be, and I am grateful we can share this virtual space and create a community together. Thanks technology, thanks open- hearted humans!
In my 100 mandala's journey, and I'm on #10...I'm discovering that my artwork has become a tool for me, an actual practice in the same way as meditation.
As my consciousness is shifting and I'm deep diving in my hour+ a day meditation, I'm able to regard my work in a very different light.
I see it very much as coming thru me, not in a woo woo way, although that's not a wrong way to describe it- a better way might be the feeling that the whole design is complete and my job is to fill it in as best I can. Which makes sense intellectually, idk- I've never conceived of it in this way.
The difference is in my approach. Now, when I sit down it's as if I'm meeting up with something. Not *just* sitting down to draw. I carefully now arrange my tools, give myself enough time and space, clear my mind...and wait.
I also sense a shift in my understanding of intention setting- the intention creates a net, a filter maybe- a vibration? A field of sorts - but I FEEL it now as a resonance that I am IN when I am drawing. Very whole/holy space.
So this is what Joseph Campbell meant when he says it's imperative that we each cultivate a sacred space...
Its real. I can feel it. So wow. It's such a subtle thing. And I guess my point is; this works. When you are consciously paying attention to yourself, holding loving space, something beautiful begins to stir. And it IS magic!!!
Much love to you beautiful souls today!!
