Intuitive Art for Soul Connection
Intuitive Art Defined
Intuitive art is a process of painting with no specific outcome in mind. There is no need for previous art or intuitive training. The only requirement is letting go of your inhibitions to allow your creative, true self to flow and express itself.
Intuitive Art is a technique used to connect with your higher self. It’s great for self-awareness, personal discovery or simply to express yourself. You can even seek an answer to a specific question from your higher wisdom. The act of creating intuitively gets us out of our head and into the natural flow of the universe. It gets us out of our own way.
This may sound a bit out there but stay with me. Everything is energy. And if we pick up the paintbrush and allow ourselves to dip into the paint and go with the flow, our intuitive self is allowed free reign of expression. No guidelines, rules, or expectations. No prescribed outcome.
Creating Intuitive Art
Begin the intuitive art process by setting the scene. Put on soulful music, burn cinnamon, orange, and vanilla incense or aromatherapy, and shut out any possible distractions—especially the cell phone.
Most importantly attempt to turn off your rational mind.
Pick out five or six paint colors that call to you. Get your two glasses of water—a glass to rinse your brushes and one to hydrate your body. Have your paintbrushes and paper towels ready. Set your canvas up.
Pick up a brush and dip into any of the colors. Allow yourself to apply paint to canvas. Use one color until it seems to be the right time to switch–then add another. Watch as the colors flow and blend, maybe even starting to form shapes. As the energy flows through you trust that whatever is meant to be will be—que sera sera…
With spontaneous painting the end result is not the focus–this is all about the intuitive process. Allow your soul to emerge and express all the ideas, concerns, secrets, and solutions it’s been waiting to offer.
Go with this for as long as you want, whatever feels right to you. Sometimes you will feel like you
never want to stop!
Once you feel your art is complete, take a step back. Meditate on your work. Our primal language is about color, symbols, shapes, and imagery. How does your creation make you feel?
This is the perfect time to start an art journal. Write about your emotions throughout this process.
How did you feel going into this intuitive experience? What changed for you as you went deeper into the experience?
Write about the piece you have created. What do you see? What emotions come up for you as you meditate on your artwork? Write down words or phrases that pop into your head. Don’t try to make sense of any of it—just write.
You can also do intuitive mixed-media art. Use scraps of paper cut or ripped into shapes. Add these to your canvas along with string, feathers, sequins, and whatever else feels right to you.
The creation and interpretation of this experience and piece of art will evolve. This may be quick or it might take a while, so be patient. There is no right or wrong–just allow the message to present itself.
Hang your art in an obvious place and meditate on it whenever you can. Now go back over your journal and see if anything new comes to mind. Intuitive art is a blessing from the Universe available to you at any time with no limits. Create and connect often!
