Intentional Creativity uses the Muse (the inner voice of guidance that feeds you rather than feeds off you), we go on a visioning journey together to find her and gather the medicine, gifts, tools, or knowledge she has for us. The canvas is the portal through which we make a more physical contact; painting, and writing are the tools used to assist the Muse to emerge into being.
The core teaching is about bringing in your whole self through your intention, so that you can live fully liberated into the being you are here to express in the world.
The painting becomes a power (Chi) generator, like a Talisman through every thought and inquiry being infused into the painting. It is a quantum reality that when we bring our mindfulness to something that it actually lights up. As you light up you are lighting up the field that we are all part of and hence we light the earth.
The image will hold the space for the experience, all our life experiences are held in story. We are generally not conscious of how we hold these stories, what we make it mean or where it is stored in our field.
Memory exists inside the space around us in the field, and not in the brain. When we paint we go into the field around us and access the story. We ask for that story through intention to be moved out of the space where it is and into the prepared space of the canvas.
