INTUITIVE THERAPUTIC PAINTING

Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.

Dr. Joyce Brothers


INTUITIVE THERAPUTIC PAINTING : RAIN

Intuitive Painting is a practice of meditation with colours, textures, shapes and designs with brush in hand.

No child needs to be taught how to cry once it is born.

It is the intuitive intelligence that makes the baby express the need of the body with emotions. We all have intuitive intelligence. but as we grow, the need to be appreciated and accepted by others, to be perfect and do better than others also grows. This make us express more analytically and we loose the intuitive connection with ourselves.

This art does not teach you to be creative, but to make the creative unconsciousness turn alive and make it more awake, more whole and importantly more real and authentic.

Get Inspired, But Don’t Copy

Being inspired by people around is very good. keep yourself surrounded with such artworks, follow new techniques, learn new skills. feed you soul with ever evolving creativity.

But if you copy others style, it will not allow you to discover your unique approach to painting and expressing yourself.

Using prompts will help you break your canvas and begin the process. But for all other steps, listen to what you intuition has to call out for you. accept it without judgment and allow yourself to trust your brush and express it on the canvas.

Intuitive art is therapeutic but not Art therapy in itself

Intuitive art is psychological self exploration and it feels therapeutic. It will help you feel mindful and self aware by helping you not only to hear your inner voice but to even listen to it. but this is still art Making and not Art Therapy.

Art therapy, your emotions are supported by a legal certified Art Therapist. The feelings that you express through art and understood and analyses in a correct clinical approach. It is not at all based on the final art work. The whole Art therapy is based on the process of making the art. the legal Art therapist is educated to encourage you to figure out why something is showing up in your art and to analyse how it is connected to your personal history. Do not try this by yourself.

While you make this Intuitive painting, stay out of making meanings out of what you make. Just enjoy the mysterious process of how your mind brings out ideas and creativity from within which you were unaware of having it in you.

You can always connect with me for personal Art Therapy sessions. Till than just stay true to your intuition and celebrate your effort in doing so.

Take Ten Twice

“Excersice your BRAIN to figure out what your BODY needs to do”

Brain is the primary organ of the body which controls every single thing in us, physically or emotionally. Human brains is structurally divided in two parts, the Right and the Left brain. Both parts has specific structures to perform designated job.

Most of the wobble in our life is due to the imbalance between the Activities performed by two halves of the brain. For example, a person spending the day in job of numbers and words have the left brain activated more than the right one while a person involved in creative work like teacher, homemaker, artist etc have right brain more activated then the left one.

In both the cases, unknowingly one part of the brain is more concentrated upon, while the other part gradually undergoes fatigue. And so no matter how good we are at work, or how great we are at the job we are doing, an imbalance is always felt.

Have you wondered why kids dont face such stress? It is because we all were born with the whole brain and all parts of it active equally. As we grow, we select our likings and comforts, concentrating on it so much that the areas of the brain which cordinated the other things gradually gets dull.

The most important job in our life is TO THINK. Wether a kid or an adult, ruch or poor, earning or non earning, healthy or ill…we all do one thing before the other is to THINK. The task that each of us perform daily, totally depends on how you think to do that task. Out of 100 regular activities that we do, hardly 5 to 6 are mindful. Others are done mostly automatically by the brain as per how we have trained them when we started to grow.

It is not rocket science to keep both the parts of the brain active. It just needs TEN minutes TWICE a DAY to quick start all the parts of the brain and thus maintain an equilibrium while doing what you do otherwise.

There are these set of daily Creativity based Mindful Activities which can be taken up in only 10 minutes on your own with very less investment of materials and with almost no rules, which activates all the different structures of both Right and Left Brain, post which the thinking ability of routine task becomes more thoughtful and with self awareness.

Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Mixed media art journal practice is one of my favourite activity gor Mindfulness as not only it gives you the permission to create without rules and boundaries of mediums but also it allows you to reflect in your creations and work on it.

Here is a quick mixed media art journal quote page idea.

Though I would advise to check on the whole video above for little tips and tricks while you make this, below are some easy and quick go through steps.

1. On a watercolour paper, i grabbed the clour i got attracted to on my rack and gave dry brush strokes
2. Once dried, gave few yellow strokes to balance the darkness
3. Liked this quote, so stencilled it with distress ink
4. Made a visual frame by rubber stamping the splash shapes with distress ink
5. Highlighting with white splatters is my favourite step. It brings everything together and totally changes the look.
6. Using bright alcohol ink, i coloured the frame area and gave some splashes in the middle
7. Allowed it to dry and my page was satisfactory enough to call it ready

Cherish the art you created without having a plan of how to go about it. Allow yourself to try exactly what your brain asks you to at that moment. This way you will automatically bring out the creative side of you and sucj art would be genuinely yours.
