Access Your Intuition with DrawingsFebruary 18, 2012
One of my favorite mind-body skills is drawings. I have had so much fun learning and practicing this skill. I wrote about my first experience with drawings last summer when I attended The Gulf Coast Community Day sponsored by the Mind-Center of Louisiana. I have treasured the drawing I did that day and keep it in the plastic cover of my binder from the first training I attended in October. The drawing (shown in the photo) inspires me every time I look at it.
I enjoyed this exercise again in both of the trainings that I attended, validating my feelings and getting in touch with my inner guidance each time. Today I decided to use this exercise to help me explore some questions that my coach and I have been discussing. He routinely asks me to write about challenges that we discuss, so as I was writing this morning I decided to try drawing with the question I am mulling over now - how to more effectively move my personal business forward.
The exercise goes like this. You draw pictures in response to three questions, with the final question formatted in a way to engage your intuition. The questions I wrote today to help me explore my current challenges are:
- How do I see myself doing my personal business now?
- How do I see myself with my personal business fully created?
- How do I most effectively move from 1 to 2?
The process of creating each drawing gives form to the ideas in my head and the feelings in my heart. What do I include? How do I represent my thoughts on the paper? What colors do I use? I feel like this exercise engages different aspects of my inner knowledge, and I love being creative with it. How often do I get the opportunity to pull out my colors and get to act like a kid again? And the beauty of its simplicity amazes me.
