I was in physical pain, again, last night, my back creaking and squeaking as if it had something to say, but I couldn't tell what. As I work in energy I can get pretty impatient with myself, thinking, Lord, what now?! So I turned to my favourite medium for distraction - colour. I allow myself the permission that it doesn't matter what I paint, but it's as useful as doing a crossword, i.e. it's a moment of connection to a part of me that is tickled by the activity.
In my case, I just love mixing colour.... and, juxtaposing 'rude' colours together. I began with the 'too bright' yellow (no judgement, you notice) but, feeling rebellious, I rejected the comfort of my usual circles for - squares! This is me really exploring my boundaries, stepping out of my comfort zone! The second was the green square at an angle... again, me not wanting to be predictable ... and then to the orange that touches the yellow - another rule broken? And so I continue till I have filled the paper. By the end, I'm quite pleased by the composition - and the tease that there is more to come from the bigger squares peaking in.
I share this with you because for all the inner work I've done, I'm owning up to a very childish pastime that is allowing me to play. And frankly, play and creativity is the way forward for me. I'm frustrated that I feel as if my creativity is locked away within, so I'm starting at the beginning. With primary colours and the fun it gives me.
Paint may not be your way to step out of your comfort zone to satisfy your creative urge, but it's likely, if you are reading this, that you are seeking something. I invite you to feel into the part of you that likes to play... and go from there.
It's even more fun in company, so if you'd like to explore your energy and play with me, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm at the start of a whole new adventure with this website and yourenergymap.com and I'd love it if you joined me.
