DARE TO BE WILD! / Issue #2
rhythm --- how it moves you
(in your art and life)
INNER VISIONING . . .
We are creative beings. Some of us are compelled to express this creativity without hesitation. Some of us feel that something is "whispering" to us, "come, you have riches inside you and the world needs you to share them." Do we dare to follow this? Others sense a longing or a pulling but it may be mixed with an uncertainty of how to express or what wants to be expressed through us.
Listening to your inner voices filled with desires, dreams and goals . . . these are the voices of your Soul, inviting you to dare to live your dreams. This is the exploration for Volume 1, the first Month's Topic.
Grant and Suzanne both experience that to create is aliveness and connection, to create is Love expressed, to create is sharing their individual uniqueness to the world. In this process, Grant and Suzanne found it continually takes courage, risks, stillness, openness, humility, and a willingness to say a resounding Yes! So, in honor of creativity and in the spirit of sharing about their own personal journeys Grant and Suzanne speak personally about what inspires them to stay connected to their creativity and how they share it with the world.
In this first Issue of Dare to be Wild are featured ways to shift to thinking bigger, to more imagined possibilities, guided meditation to relax the mind and open to spaciousness as a doorway to Creativity, quotes from those who have been Creatives before us, videos of how others change their thoughts and create against the odds, simple practices to get started on an inner journey, an art gallery of artists who have dared to take the risks, and follow their passions, and finally Dare to be Wild Creative FB Community Forum where you can share your own creativity, ask questions, meet fellow artists and begin a practice.
We hope you will enjoy and return many times to be inspired, to connect and to ignite your own creativity.
This is a section of inspirational quotes and images on the monthly topic to open thinking in new ways, perhaps helping to relax old stories that limit, feeling the joy of Life, and touching into the very soul where creativity is alive.
The audio meditative experience this month is to connect to the natural rhythm of breathing, the very essence of life itself.
