Boodles of Doodles: Making Time For Mindful Art

Melanated Lotus Yoga

Peace Beloveds,

Day 18: Boodles of Doodles

Creativity fuels our energetic being in a such a profound way. Reflect briefly on how you feel, think, or respond when you’ve successfully taken something from mind to matter. Using art as a form of creative expression is a wonderful way tap into what is within you naturally. It’s an opportunity to be fully present while allowing yourself to let go mentally and connect with yourself on a spiritual and emotional level. This exercise is not about how good you can or cannot draw. We are using art (painting, doodling, drawing, sculpting etc.) to express what is within us while giving that expression the freedom it needs to manifest itself in the way that honors its voice. During this activity do not dwell in your mind, feel.

To get started:

  • Take 5 to 10 minutes to sit in meditation. During your meditation place your dominant hand over your solar plexus chakra and your receptive hand over your heart chakra. Take deep diaphragmatic breaths and simply connect.
  • Grab your artsy weapon of choice and let the energy flow through your hands. The goal is to allow what needs to manifest itself the space to do so. In this instance, we are only the conduit
  • Once you’ve created your piece place it somewhere safe yet out of view. Come back to it tomorrow (or several days later) and look at your creation. See what speaks or pops out to you and reflect on it.
  • This is something that you can do a few times a month or a week to give yourself a view of what you are channeling.

May we all be the conduit through which our higher consciousness serves humanity. So shall it be!

Love & Light
