Happy Spring! Warm sunshine with cool breezes, flowers blooming and birds singing . . . Now if only the temperature would stay in the low 70’s all year!
I love the Spring! But wow – is it here already??!
Lately time has felt like it’s been zooming by . . . so fast! It finally dawned on me that TIME isn’t moving quicker, it’s me! And the faster I move, the faster my life seems to blur around me.
In my ARTstarters book, we explore the Creative Mindset of seeing Beauty, and the ritual of taking a Slow Motion Day. Can you imagine the CONTRAST in your life if you took a full day to MOVE SLOWLY, intentionally, on purpose. Imagine what it would feel like to purposefully take your time with every action you take, everything you say, every place you go, every interaction. Because it is so different from what we do everyday, it invites inspiration.
If time has been moving too fast for you, maybe it’s a signal for you to slow down. To take a walk. To take it all in. To ZOOM in and focus on the tiny details, the holy moments of life, the sacred seeing of creations all around us.
Try scheduling a slow motion day, and afterward reflect on your day in your journal.
Please share your thoughts and comments on our blog after taking your SLOW MOTION DAY!
And if you would like to take that concept further, here is a fabulous opportunity to take a 7 –week spiritual journey of visual discernment . . .
I invite you to join me and the Abbey of the Arts in a special online Easter retreat:
Eyes of the Heart
Photography as Contemplative Practice
Are you seeking a way to bring more presence and prayerfulness to your creative expression? Are you longing for ways to practice the contemplative life which are more visual and kinesthetic? Would you like some structure and encouragement in the creative path?
