I have recently experienced a block in my creativity by going through some personal issues. I could not do anything creative for couple of weeks which of course wasn’t improving my overall state of mind at all.
I tried to finish few of my unfinished older projects but everything I did just didn’t feel right. All my inspiration was suddenly gone and each of my old drawings I wanted to continue with didn’t seem to be channelled through the same channel anymore. After initial thoughts of desperation I decided to change my approach.
I remembered those nights when I can’t fall asleep as my mind is so active and my usual solution to this – meditation. When I try to calm my mind by focusing on breathing and letting my thoughts go I usually get very strong visual stimulation for drawing. So I did intentional meditation for discovering what is it I should be drawing/painting in that particular moment. And it came to me.
It was very powerful and vivid vision that I’ve transferred into drawings. All the drawings were finished in much shorter time than usually and it has left a strong sense of belonging in me. However it’s interpretation is a bit obscured even to myself.
