Intentional Creativity Is
Everything within us, past, present, and future lives in story. When we create around our story, we gain clarity. When we create with intention, we activate both sides of the brain. When we activate our brain, we gain greater access to our own information, how to articulate it and how to move it from the stuck places.
Creating with intention is simply working with mindfulness in whatever we set our hands to. Whether it is creating a soup, a garden, a business plan or a painting. We are more present because we choose to be and the results are different than if we are not paying attention. Intentional Creativity is an approach to creating that yields greater access to who we are now and are becoming, and what is possible for us and our unfolding future.
Often we fear the places within us, because we don’t understand them, or don’t have any idea how to reach them. The wounds are many layers deep – how do you get inside to where the stories live? In our work, it is at the canvas that the hidden stories start to come unraveled and revealed. The light pours into the wounds with a brush in hand. This is Intentional Creativity. Wounds become tools for transformation, and the potential for teaching and healing others emerges.
This is the movement the soul has been seeking for so long – to be expressed. Self-expression is one of the keys to healing the past, living in the present fully embodied, and authoring a fascinating future, a legend even. This is about fearless belonging. To yourself. To your life work. To the universe. To one another. We belong here – when we create, we come to life. We tug on the red thread and realize we are indeed connected to everything – and that connection cries out for self-expression.
