Welcome 2019. Do you want to be more creative? To express yourself with more honesty? To know more about the creative process, and how you can transform yourself in the process?? So follow this blog.
I’am so excited to write about the creative process, and how it has opend me up more and more, to see what it is all about. I have been doing art for over 20 years, and I can say with clarity, how important the creative process is.
You can unlock your potentials in this way, not just in doing art, but in your life. It’s all about freedom, to be free and fearless to create from your heart. To create with honesty and purity, to express your heart, soul and emotions, and in this way aligning yourself. Aligning with your inner world, to show who you are. Why are most people so afraid to express themselves?? They say oh, i never learned to draw. I’am not creative, it’s from my mother. My sister got all the creative talent, not me. We think that to be creative is something your are borned with, and if not you don’t have this skill. This is not true.
All of us are creators, and we can create everything. You just have to reconnect with yourself, and go beyond all your limitations and practically everything you have learned about being creative. To be creative is not something you have to learn, it’s something you are. We learn that it is a skill and you have to do it a certain way, we learn a lot of rules and that you have to go to certain schools to be a good and serious artist. Nothing wrong with art schools, but you have to be a very strong and independent person to remain grounded in your own reality. To not loose yourself.
You have to find your own language and your own vibration, to create from innosense and not just copying others, or follow other peoples teaching and ideas. We are all unique, at the same time we are all connected, each of us having our own voice, and our own wholeness to share with others. It will have a ripple effect for other people, to also connect with their heart and inner essence. To be a creator of their own lifes. It’s the only way we can live happily togheter, to give each other the freedom to be all that we can be.
When we are creating we are being confronted with a lot of layers of ourselves, and we have to face a lot of things, about how we self sabortage ourselves. When you are becoming aware of what’s really going on in this process, you can work through your blocks which will open you up to be more free, connecting you with pure joy and inner happiness.
To be creative, doing art is something you can do in solitude, it’s something you can do just for yourself. And what iI will show you in this blog, is how to begin this journey just with drawings. It’s a very simpel way to get started, you don’t need a lot of materials, and a lot of space.
When you become aware of what the creative process are, and what you can be confronted with, it’s so much easier to gain your own freedom and find your own visual language. When you are no more afraid of what other people are thinking, when you are not judging yourself, when you are not following others rules but are connected with your own guidance. When you stay flexible and open and can follow your flow, not afraid to experiment, not afraid to try something new. To dare being completly out of control, being free flowing and grounded in the mittle of chaos. To always trust the process, and know that you are safe.
Read some of my earlier blogposts “How to find your own visual language” about how to get started step by step. In 2019 I will dig deeper into some of the same topics, and share some of my own experiences.
In my next blogpost, I will share more about the creative process and how you can work with it, instead of resisting the process. So stay tuned.
