My creative process began with (and continues to contain) some very basic and elementary practices. The picture above is one of my favorite, creative meditations. I start by scribbling without lifting my pencil and creating swirls, circles and a container for shapes. Then I take my colored pencils and simply start filling in the space. I don’t think or plan. I just grab the color that most inspires me in that moment and let the pencil take control.
I love to do this when I find it difficult to sit for a close eyed meditation, or when I need an answer to something and even when I’m in a class or workshop. There’s no right or wrong. Just be like a child and let yourself play with color.
