How could something as simple as drawing facilitate change? Art is more than a subject. It is a language–a nonverbal language–that can help us uncover the subtle nuances of our feelings and emotions. Since it is also a form of biofeedback–meaning the real paintbrush is your body/mind state–it can help us identify and pinpoint beliefs, behaviors, and responses that are not in alignment with our true nature. As our awareness expands, what appears on the paper also changes. This can take place with activities as simple as scribbling.
For years Miro, Picasso, Klee, and Kandinsky explored how the elements of color, line, texture, and dimension carried and transmitted their feelings, thoughts, and beliefs. They perused art in this manner because they were all interested in self-transformation. They found that removing the focus on realistic rendering and playing with only the elements (color, line, texture, and dimension) they freed their unconscious to express itself in a unique and unabashed manner. And in that place of spontaneous, almost child-like play, delight, wonder, and the authentic self was rekindled.
If you have never played with art in this manner, I recommend that you begin with simple scribbling. This seemingly infantile activity can transport your mind into a hypnotic–like relaxed and open state. When you go into this state with awareness you can program your subconscious mind with awareness–you are now reprogramming the programming. This is very different from being in the same state in your early childhood years. One is passive and the other is active.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are an easy way to transport your mind to an open and receptive state.
Also, in a recent interview, said, “Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!”
