IS NOT A STATIC OBJECT ON A WALL
– it is something alive and dynamic, that connects us with e v e r y t h i n g
Real art is about how we physical beings open an aperture to see and feel the mystical depths of the everyday.
Art was originally a gateway into the spiritual; rich in depth and meaning for everyone. It was something used, worn, that made up ceremony, and was part of everyday life.
In modern western commercialism, it has largely had the magic sucked right out of it, so it can be used to channel more riches to the already-wealthy.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, the false hierarchy of ‘culture’ tells the average human that they cannot be creative; they can only consume and observe the world passively.
THIS IS A DEVASTATING MYTH, COMPLETELY NORMALISED, THAT STOPS US FROM INTERACTING HARMONIOUSLY WITH THE WORLD!!
‘Art’ has become exclusive to Big White Men’s clubs, white gallery spaces – and has increasingly been removed from ‘lower’ levels of society. ‘Artists’ and ‘art’ have become more conceptual, less sensitive, less connected, and people outwith these realms have become more and more removed from the magic of the everyday – to everyone’s detriment.
Though we’ve been sold an immense, elaborate fib about creative power – about who can own it, and about what it’s worth, we’re all now waking up to our creative capacity as individuals – finding voice and expression for ideas, joining collective power structures and growing energy.
Like nature, art has always managed to flourish and evolve – to be meaningful – even when blocked, censored, ignored, suppressed.
Real artists (in particular, women) have been making meaningful, powerful art, and living profoundly enriched and fulfilled lives, all these centuries.
We all know the sense of freedom that comes from drawing and painting, or working with our hands; that transcendence and sense of wholeness. We all know how good it felt to be a child scribbling with with happy arms stretched out over paper. We all thrived making things as children: our creative power came effortlessly. But what if that was how we were meant to be – expanding and learning and becoming happier always – throughout our lives?
A happy, healthy human being – working creatively, and aligned with their soul – is in control of their own destiny and their own precious time: they have a glorious absence of the mental-emotional-social-energetic tensions that have come to be considered ‘real life’. Rather than feeling detached and without purpose, we’re meant to feel deeply fulfilled: as happy creative beings, we know what we want, and how to get it; we manifest easily and joyfully.
Creativity is an inherent part of human being – it is an inner eye which can be trained and exercised, and opened and opened, until it is a wide, honed channel for divine inspiration.
Real, free, creative human beings are all artists: they are inherently making stuff, building energy, inspiring, finding solutions and beauty everywhere, and are in harmony with the interconnectedness-of-all-things.
When we start using our creative power and potential as human beings, we’re far more able to: shape a super-fulfilling life for ourselves; radiate outwards an immense positive energy and influence; improve our health and well-being; to find solutions to all of our problems and blocks, and find magic and meaning in the everyday…
The world of art is often seen as a labyrinth, full of mysterious language and locked doors, so many folks don’t ever begin their creative adventures. THIS IS WHERE I COME IN! I’m super-passionate about everyone knowing all about their own unique creative power!
And just to be super-clear: I AM NOT talking about jolly-jolly art tricks or gimmicky shortcuts to painting realistic copies of stuff – I’m talking about YOUR INIMITABLE ART GENIUS – which is sitting right now, a seed waiting to be coaxed into vitality.
We all have access to the immense magic of creative flow, right here and right now – come join me to find out more:
