My artist friends have also given me resources and suggestions for practice. Their input spurs me on to try new techniques at my own pace. It’s wonderful to get this no-pressure coaching that I can apply without a timeline restriction.
Am I noticing differences in my mindset given I’m making concerted efforts at engaging my right side of the brain for longer periods than typical? Yes, I think I am. How? I believe that during stressful periods this fall, I have felt increased calm and my perspective appears to be engaging my saboteurs less and my wiser sage thoughts are grounding me. This shift is enough that I am considering continuing this daily sketching beyond the 100 days.
Last, my creative friends inspire me with their artistic and playful projects. Dave Meredith has just recently shared how he is planning to create an upside-down Christmas tree this year. I don’t know what excites me more, to see the finished project secured to his ceiling or to hear all his enthusiastic brainstorming and planning. The joy this creative project is bringing to his life is infectious!
I concur with Dave Meredith, (quote above) that when I surrender to being open and playfully practicing skills life gains a new shining perspective, (and I do love all that dazzles and shines lol). Also, like Dave, I find new opportunities surface. Hmmm, is that because we are more open and aware of opportunities on the horizon? Returning full circle: Does creative engagement clear negative energy? Yes, it can!
