Bring out your inner artist

Everyone secretly wants to be an artist. It looks like magic from the outside, watching an artist confidently move a pencil over the paper, rapidly and consistently rendering the image until there is a sudden stop; the artist steps back and observes the image in deep contemplation before getting back to work with a smile on the face, as if a quiet whisper had delivered a secret to the ear of the sensitive artist.

Makes you wonder how nice it would be if you could be artistic and tuned into the universe, operating as a channel for limitless creativity, absolute freedom and power?


Congratulations! You inner artist is about to be released

We are born creative and it takes very little to reassess that natural state. To make art, all you need to do is to grab a brush and go—really.

The quiet whisper that the artist or poet hears, comes from the inside—it is a feeling, an idea and a complex calculation. But it doesn’t need to be a calculation to be valid, it is okay to have no idea of what is going on, it is okay to be clueless and lost, it is okay to dip a brush in purple or red and just splash the brush on a canvas, just for fun. Is that art? It is the beginning of art and it can go beyond your imagination, but you need to start somewhere, without worrying about the outcome. Loosen up and have fun; let your inner artist take over. Just remember to leave self-importance behind.

Artistic freedom is as important as the freedom of speech. It is the freedom to just be, to revel in the endless possibilities of the moment. Spirituality and creativity is the same thing. The creative flow is your spirit and when you create, your spirit works through you. The creative process enhances, strengthens and celebrates your true essence.

This does not mean that everyone should have a creative profession. It means that you need to make time and space for periodic creative endeavours to bring our your inner artist. Doing so will not only make you feel really good about yourself but also help you remember who you are.
