Spontaneous collage is an easy way to begin expressing yourself with no need for drawing or painting skills. Choosing images that emotionally "call to you" (you do not need to know why) and placing them together in a spontaneous way can yield profound insights from your subconscious/unconscious mind.


Spontaneous collage can be taken to a high level of art or it can simply be a few images put together in a random fashion. The simplicity of collage offers a great way to self-express because it is so easy to do.


The mind sometimes cannot get out of its daily loop enough to be able to see the hidden parts of self that are longing to express and integrate into our conscious awareness. Spontaneous collage can bypass our censoring mind to reveal deeper thoughts and emotions.


A good way to start spontaneous collage is to try creating a Daily Ten Minute Collage. A few images chosen each day to meditate on can invite surprising insights.
