Toward the end of October, I was introduced to Neurographica by mu creative friend Karen Dawn, whom I met in last spring's Dancing Entrepreneur online course.
Fun! And rather additive! I am enjoying adding it to my medicine basket of daily practices. Creativity is an awesome way to access information from our whole being, and integrate it more deeply. studies show translating ideas into action is more likely to occur when combined with creative practices.
Since that introduction, I've been creating Neurographic doodles, and engaged in a November Gratitude practice. Researched and developed by a Russian psychologist, Pavel Piskerev. I am reminded of our Identical Creativity community's Metacognative drawings, and interested to see how the two will interface.
- The week of Vivid community gatherings and Legend painting journey
- Spending time with my Grands
- The return of several bodywork clients
- Think of your intention - what are you releasing?
- Gather leaves from your area
- Lay some out, when you have a pleasing pattern, trace around them
- Draw random Neuro lines radiating around them and crossing
- Begin rounding corners where lines intersect, take your time, notice your breath and how your body feels - this rounding soothes the nervous system
- After you've rounded lines, begin adding circles in various sizes, notice thoughts that arise - gratuities, seeds for the future ...
- Round any new crossings, adding more lines as feels right
- Begin coloring - watercolor, crayons, colored pencil. Generally do at least three cells with the Saab color, and use at least the colors. Leaving areas effort is fine as well
- Finishing touches/ adornment: I like to use shimmer watercolor on some areas, often my orbs and leaves (or other focal point.
- Now how do you feel?
I created Neurographic grounding pages in both my art journal and Smashbook, inspired by this sweet video from Gideon's Light. This is one of my favorites!
