Transforming Art (TA) is one of the main practices we use at Diviners. Transforming Art is a medium to allow ourselves to be transformed by using Art and Meditation.
Art = Spontaneous
Meditation = Awareness
Spontaneous + Awareness = Transforming Art
In this method, various artistic and mindful exercises are practiced to relieve you from emotional blocks and set you free. With this freedom as a foundation, you can realize your true self.
Creativity is a free flow of energy that exists deep down in everyone. This free-flow energy takes the form of expression. When we allow our artistic energy to be free, we are bringing complete awareness to it so that we do not block this expression through our conditions, judgments, and comparisons with others. If we just let our natural creative energy free-flow in its way, then we spontaneously start singing, dancing, painting, and more. When we start singing or dancing or otherwise, in that flow, all we have to do is to allow ourselves to be who we are and observe ourselves closely. Allow and observe, flow and, awareness: that is how transformation begins.
With the regular practice of this method, we increase access to our source of creativity. All emotional blocks start releasing, finally leading us to a deeper state of meditation, and then, a purifying of ourselves.
The Way to Practice TA:
TA has two Foundational Principles.
- Spontaneous flow
These two points are like two wings to a bird. Only with two wings can a bird fly.
Step 1: Start by doing any art spontaneously, from the present moment.
Note: The art shouldn’t happen through your memories or by planning. In anything you do, it must be just from the present moment. The “present movement” is a phrase we use, similar to the “present moment;” however, it refers to the natural free-flow energy in you that is experienced in the present moment.
Step2: Allow the flow without any judgment or comparison.
Step 3: Be aware and observe everything that is happening in and out of you. Be dedicated to this awareness with the precision of a scientist.
Constant observation of our artistic flow and emotions can help to raise our consciousness and improve emotional intelligence.
