Creativity is a total game changer when we are itching for something new to be birthed in life. It’s like the super secret sauce we always forget to add. When our thoughts and emotions start to get jumbled up, they can get stuck spinning around inside of our heads. One of the best ways to sort through the fuzzy chaos of emotions and release the pressure is through art journaling… finding a way to express ourselves. Getting words, shapes, and colors onto the paper brings all of the pieces into the light. When we can gain new perspectives and find some clarity about what’s going on inside of us, it helps “prime the pump” so we can see what our choices are and become the creators of our lives.
The Atlas of My Heart series launched in March of 2023 and will run through March of 2024. Each month, a new Art Journaling Exercise is released to O! Club Members (aka Subscribers of OYOLMIA!, my monthly newsletter) and it’s FREE! Head on over HERE to get signed up.
We are currently working through Brené Brown’s Atlas of the Heart and you can jump in at any time. For more details about the series, download the PDF below.
For each monthly guided Cathartic Arting activity – you just grab your friends and bring the supplies from the monthly list, and I’ll take care of the rest! For all the planners out there, you can find a participant guide HERE to throw some additional details around those fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants instructions.
