The Tip

What happens when you connect the dark tip of your pen/cil to your inner truths?

Part one is a 5 minute audio leading you through a self reflective doodling exercise.  Part Two we do the decoding! You'll need a journal or piece of paper and any pen or pencil.

PART ONE: THE DOODLE
Note that in the second half of the audio - if you receive words you'll want to translate them into an image so that you end up with three images.

PART TWO DECODING
Let's see what happens when you "assign roles"

If the container is the topic - ie the context, and the body part and message object are perspectives, what conversation is available? Make three associations with each part to "wake them up". Take dictation from each and then pull out a main message!

 


These two prompts are part of a short series created for Intuition.  The whole series, along with myriad other games are included with an Inspired Inquiries Subscription.

The Shape of Wisdom

 

This collage divination was created as an accompaniment for Shiloh Sophia's Intentional Creativity course Codex.  The intention is to catch some of your personal essential wisdom by using collage and shape.

There is nothing that I love more than collage for catching hold of what I don't realize that I know. 
Instructions:
1. Doodle a bottle/container
2. Fill it bottom to top with images, gluing as you go.
3. Draw a circle and translate "My wisdom is creating space for..."
4. Draw a square and translate "My wisdom is building..."
5. Draw a triangle and translate "My wisdom is visioning..."

ART PROMPT: The Rule Maker

 

Hey again! As I've mentioned, Rebel Rules opens tomorrow and I'm giddy about it. I   wanted to share the opening prompt because it is deliciously informative, surprising and fun to do. I hope when you give it a go, you'll email me with what you learned!


Day One. Let's get this party started! So! During our three week cycle together we will be defining and refining our own set of rules for wellness. Previously I invited you to start to notice which habits are calling: those you are ready to start and those you are ready to stop. And now I want to you shake all that off and just LISTEN. We're going to invite a character onto the page who is a facet of our internal genius. We're calling this aspect the "Rule Maker" and I'd love you to get ready to be surprised by what they have to tell you. For today's start you'll need your journal, collage supplies and a sense of curiosity!

Summary: Intentionally call upon the "Rule Maker" to reveal themselves as you flip through a...

Art Prompt: The Wild Woman

 

Creating an external representation of the Wild Woman, especially one that can point you to some new information, is always useful. If you are free with your doodling or painting, that would work. But I find that collages surprise me the most... What message might you find in 13 “random” images?

Art Prompt: Resistance

 
If you are floundering, finding better things to do, feeling paralyzed, or even feeling comfortable with your daily progress, today I'm going to ask you to use your resistance as a compass to point you deeper.

What awesome excuses are you currently entertaining about why this whole arting experiment should be scrapped? Is it stupid? A waste of time? Or the higher brow "Ahem, simply not a priority." Is the art itself not progressing quickly, deeply, powerfully enough? Have you already failed to show up so many times in these first two weeks that the remaining 77 days shouldn't even be attempted? What fear is smirking under your totally true rationalizations? And what edge is it unerringly pointing you towards?

Tell yourself the truth.
And make showing up a priority today.


We'll be working with resistance more in a journal exercise below. In preparation is an excerpt from the book "The War of Art: Break through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles" that I...
