Art and Exploration a Meditation with Nitya

Imagine a serene and comfortable space where you feel safe and at ease. This might be a cosy room filled with soft light or a peaceful outdoor setting. Picture yourself in this space, surrounded by an atmosphere of tranquillity.


Sit down, relax and breathe in. 


In this creative world that you have created for yourself , visualise an array of artistic tools in front of you — brushes, paints, pencils, or any medium that resonates with you. Select the one that draws you in, that feels like an extension of your inner self.


With your chosen tool in hand, start to create on the blank canvas. There's no need for a specific image or form; let your intuition guide your movements. Allow the colours and shapes to flow organically from within.


As you engage in this artistic expression, notice the sensations in your body. Pay attention to the emotions that surface. Are there moments of joy, surprise, or perhaps a gentle release of tension?


Take a step back and observe your creation. This is more than just a creation of colours; it's a reflection of your thoughts and emotions. What do you see? What does your creation tell you about your inner world?


As you immerse yourself in the act of creation and reflection, understand that this process is a form of self-care and healing. Art allows you to externalise what words might struggle to convey. It provides a tangible expression of your experiences and a means to navigate the complexities of your emotions.


In the quiet of this artistic meditation, you may feel a sense of release, understanding, or even a newfound perspective on your own journey. Art becomes a bridge between the conscious and the subconscious, offering a gentle pathway toward healing.


As you open your eyes and return to the present, carry with you the insights gained from this artistic exploration. Know that the canvas is not merely a space for art; it's a canvas of resilience, of self-discovery, and of healing.
