Drawing Every Day 

 

"Jung made a practice of drawing spontaneous images in a journal everyday.

 

He believed these images arose from his inner world and that they were sacred symbols of his higher self.

 

You can engage in the same transformational practice and record spontaneous imagery, develop intuitive knowing, and explore synchronicity." 

 

-Cathy Malchiodi

 

To develop your unique voice with drawing, find your own way to express with markers, pencil crayons, pastels or even a ballpoint pen. If words arise as you draw, write them down even if they do not make sense in the immediate moment. Give your hand permission to play in its own way.

 

 

Benefits of Spontaneous Drawing

 

1. Spontaneous drawing bridges the gap between the conscious and unconscious mind and can illuminate areas in your being that are blocked, inhibited and stuck.

 

2. Spontaneous drawing provides a way to nonverbally express and release negative emotions.

 

3. Spontaneous drawing develops intuitive knowing.

 

4. Intuitive drawing provides an opportunity to find your authentic self-expression.
