When the spirit of art is reawakened in my soul,
fire burns and I am compelled to do something.
Anything, digital, tangible, colourful, dark.
Literal, intricate, abstract, constructive, light.
So many options, I look around me. Something.
As I look around, it catches my eye and calls me.
Sometimes it’s a brush, sometimes a keyboard.
At times it is a microphone, and often a screen.
I don’t know what invokes me into these peaceful,
colourful dimensions and energy streams,
flowing through my crown chakra to my feet.
Creating art, beauty and expression fastly.
Am I the artist, or am I merely the catalyst?
I made a deal with my inner artist. She/he would send me lessons and I would create art showing my understanding of such things. For a very long time, I received all those lessons I enrolled for, but forgot to create art about them. Needless to say, I couldn’t advance any further and got trapped in darkness. How did I get out? I re-embraced my artistic side. Since then, I am less restless. I feel more content. I believe art is always a constructive/productive activity, lifestyle and passion, so I have a sense of accomplishment every time I create something; and as my skills improve, I become more and more in love with it, because just when I think that I cannot do better, I do.
In a way, art is in tune with the universe. Hence, being in tune with art is a way of being in tune with the universe itself. Now, being in tune with the universe itself, if not embraced with a centered and grounded mind, can make you look insane in the eyes of your social world. As it is easy to forget that these types of experiences lead to common diagnosis such as psychosis. You cannot go to someone who is not open to this type of knowledge and tell them about the meaningful dream you had the night before, or the repetitive visions you get of the probable future. I mean, you can, but don’t consider yourself a victim when they think you are nuts. It’s not their fault. They are not there yet. It was your experience, your knowledge and your mouth. Alternatively, if you don’t mind being labelled “crazy”… then you can do whatever you want with your knowledge. I decided to write about it, and I know I sound like I’ve lost my mind. That’s okay. I know that instead, I have found it.
Another common thing that is developed through the use of art is your intuition. As you learn to listen to this inner voice that manifests itself almost physically, then your art will express the thought of your intuition. You will create things that you never thought you could. Use your pain and your lessons to inspire you. Use your happiness to electrify you. Make a deal with your inner artist. Let your inner knowing guide you. Connect to your physical sensations. Expect the lessons. Trust yourself. Activate your power of creative expression.
