The Rule Maker

 

I wanted to share the opening prompt for Rebel Rules 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 magazine and let images pull you. Choose five images that grab you and one...

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.

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..."

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...
