ART AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

"PAINTING IS SELF DISCOVERY. EVERY GOOD ARTIST PAINTS WHAT HE IS" - JACKSON POLLOCK

Soul Art is art as spiritual practice toward greater inner wisdom and soul purpose

 

Art as spiritual practice is about an intentional process of self-discovery through artistic expression. Through the art we make, we connect with our soul wisdom & the highest intentions we have for our ourselves and our life.  

What is a spiritual practice?

A spiritual practice can mean something different to everyone.  Some people have a spiritual practice based around their faith (e.g. Christianity, Buddhism) while others have spiritual practices based around energy medicine and alternative healing arts.  Spiritual practices may include prayer, chanting, meditation, breathing exercises and rituals. 

Generally speaking, any spiritual practice gives us a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life.

A spiritual practice is any intentional and regular activity that establishes, develops, and nourishes union with our highest self (and beyond) and through which we allow ourselves to be changed or transformed.  The intention for spiritual practice is to connect with something beyond our current sense of self.

How can art be a spiritual practice?

When we make art, it is always an expression and a reflection of who we are. We can use art as spiritual practice to understand and listen to our inner wisdom.

 

Soul Art is intentional art with a purpose - we aim to know, explore, expand, come to understand and connect.  Doing art with a specific intention or purpose instantly makes our art more meaningful.  

 

Being open to explore, feel, see, sense, contemplate, reflect and understand the messages our artwork has for us, shifts us towards change and transformation.

In Soul Art, and using the Sacred Journey Method, each piece of art we make has an intention to explore & expand our sense of self and how we see, and experience, our life.

Our art connects us to our soul wisdom as we intuitively understand the messages our art has for us

We experience our art as spiritual practice when it becomes the avenue through which we can start to transform ourselves and also our life, as we find meaning in the colours, shapes and symbols that appear in our artwork. Each element in our art can hold deep meaning for us in the context of our life.   

When we reflect on our artwork and what it's revealing to us, we allow what was unknown to become known.  Our subconscious mind comes forth and what was unconscious can now become conscious. We expand our sense of self, our sense of who we are, to encompass something bigger and more expansive

This is where the magic happens - in the expansion of our awareness, perspective, understanding, connection and the opportunity to find meaning.

"EVERY ARTIST DIPS HIS BRUSH IN HIS OWN SOUL, AND PAINTS HIS OWN NATURE INTO HIS PICTURES" - HENRY WARD BEECHER

This is the sacred journey - of art as the voice of the soul.

Using art in this intentional way, it becomes a spiritual practice through which we expand our sense of self, our sense of who we are, and allows us to not only touch something bigger that's magical and mystical, but also who we are becoming as we connect with our true self, and our ultimate potential.
